Spring 2014 Microtrend: Velvety Tomato Lips

This is not your garden variety tomato. Spring 2014 designers like Creatures of the Wind, Christian Siriano, Rag and Bone and Desigual all featured red-orange lips with a rich, velvety texture. We've seen the vibrant color worn diffused or fully saturated using everything from lipstick to eye shadow.
For a fluorescent effect, take cue from James Boehmer's lip color combo at Creatures of the Wind. He applied layers of NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (1, $25) and Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil (launching Spring 2014) to complement the opalescent eye. 
Want to try this shade during the day? Go the Desigual route and press MAC Neon Orange Lipstick (3, $15) into the center of the lip and blend it out. We love this diffused variation. 
To get the Christian Siriano and Rag and Bone looks, dust red lips with an orange eyeshadow like NYX Single Eye Shadow in Hot Orange (2, $4.99). Daniel Martin used this technique at Chadwick Bell.
Are you loving these tomato pouts as much as we are?
