Trend to try: Beyonce's grey lipstick

Time and time again, Beyonce has proved she can pull off just about any beauty trend.

For her latest Instagram photoshoot, the Formation hitmaker has posed up a storm in a grey plaid Prabal Gurung suit, Self Portrait coat, Chanel brooch and striped Diane von Furstenberg bag.

But it was her slick of dark grey lipstick that really caught the eye of fashionistas, with the bold shade a real departure for the gorgeous superstar. Keen to try out grey lipstick for yourself? We've rounded up all the best options to check out right now.

Dark grey lipstick

There's nothing new about grey lipstick, though it remains one of the least utilised in the spectrum of lip colors. A good place to start is with Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Dagger, a cobblestone grey with a touch of lavender. This formula offers up a velvety-smooth effect and long-lasting color. Another great choice is Anastasia Beverly Hills' Matte Lipstick in Smoke, a slate grey with an ultra-matte finish and comfortable wearability. Or head to your nearest cosmetics counter and seek out Wet N Wild's MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick in Sleepy Hollow for a budget-friendly take on the look. This concrete grey shade doesn't budge and looks great with a slick of glittery gloss over the top.

Slick silver shades

Does the idea of a grey lip color send shivers down your spine? Why not ease your way into the trend by experimenting with a silver gloss over a more neutral lip shade or play with a metallic hue. Covergirl's Exhibitionist Metallic Lipstick is a light silver colour with touch of shimmer, while Smashbox's Always On Liquid Lipstick in Punked Rock is a cool grey with drop of purple glitter and silver pearl. Or treat yourself to Fenty Beauty's Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Diamond Milk, which offers a wash of shimmering pearl that's like a dewy highlight for your pout.
