Blueberry Ice Lips: The Extra-Bold Diamond Lip Trend For The Y2K Girlies

It's quite fitting that musical artist Megan Thee Stallion goes by Tina Snow, one of her numerous alter ego names, because she is channeling her inner Elsa from "Frozen" with blueberry lips. These lips simultaneously channel couture vogue and Elsa's iconic shimmering, light blue aura. The colorful makeup trend is now known across social media as blueberry ice lips for which Megan Thee Stallion has been credited as co-signing. Her blueberry lips can be attributed to Revlon's Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in the color called Frost Queen. Megan Thee Stallion has previously chaired "hot girl summer," but this year, she's bringing us a revolutionary way to cool down our lip aesthetic and lean into our inner ice icons. 

On her Instagram account, Megan Thee Stallion started the trend when she posted several photos of herself with the lip style, which she wore to a Louis Vuitton show. Her lips were specially crafted in a bespoke manner by Revlon, whose products culminated in the blueberry ice lip for a super affordable price of approximately $20. Using only two products for the look, the A-list artist has set fans and online users alike abuzz with the simple, inexpensive look that gives off elevated, elegant, and opulent vibes. There's also a healthy amount of mermaidcore and holographic appearance to the lip combination's shine, making it a mashup of some of the beauty world's hottest trends today. Of course, we'd expect nothing less from the hot girl coach!

Relive lip kits with a twist

There are only two products used in Megan Thee Stallion's blueberry ice lips, but you'll definitely be surprised by the pairing. The use of dual items is a throwback to the initial onset of lip kit mania and bold colors in lip styling that spanned the first decade of the 21st century. With a contemporary take, Megan Thee Stallion's look is crafted through the combination of lip gloss and blue eyeliner. Yep, that's right — instead of using a pairing of lip gloss and lipliner, Revlon's Sapphire ColorStay Eyeliner is the secret ingredient to this ice-inspired look. 

Achieve the look with a queue of blue products

There isn't a single way to achieve Megan Thee Stallion's blueberry ice lip look, though the affordable price and ease of only two steps for the original method of application is quite appealing. However, social media users have shared their recreations of the look by using completely different products. TikTok user @quonnaleshae provides a tutorial for achieving the blueberry ice lip appearance through the use of layered products. The process commences with dark, nearly-black liquid lipstick used as a lipliner, followed by sparkling gloss, and finalized with blue lip powder. 

It's all about the blue hue and the sparkle

No matter your preference for the look, if you prefer bright blue eyeliner in place of lipliner or lean towards the nostalgic route with dark lined lips in homage to the Y2K era, the element which leads to the style's zenith is shimmering, glittering lip gloss of a blue hue. Yahoo! reports that the lining product used in the look is matte, but the sparkle and holographic illusion of blueberry ice lips comes from the application of a heaping amount of blue tinted lip gloss complete with lots and lots of glitter.

Congruent shades of blue for you

Keeping up with the gloss, blue lip products are rising in popularity, making the DIY achievement of Megan Thee Stallion's look an accessible feat. Raydar reveals that blue lipsticks in both traditional tubes with solid sticks of lip product and liquid lipstick are trending at a rate that's quickly climbing. The modern quest for blue lips spans the spectrum of the color, from blue hues practically navy in appearance to light blue opaque gloss products that appear as sparkling powder when brushed onto lips. This is an aesthetic akin to glistening snow, and one in which Elsa would certainly approve. 

Blue hues cool your look

A final tip for DIY blueberry ice lips is to pay attention to the emphasis on heavy, thick lining of the lips, hence nostalgia of Y2K's fashion era. From afar, it doesn't appear that Megan Thee Stallion is wearing lip product on her inner lips. This instead gives the illusion of glimmering, holographic outlined lips. When replicating DIY-style, use only clear, light blue, or glitter gloss for subtle sheen on inner lips. Imagine having placed an ice cube between your lips, providing the visual of inner lip product washing away, leaving only thick outer lipliner viewable, hence the ice title.
