A-list make-up artist Pat McGrath has launched a lip kit that recreates Rihanna’s red sparkly lips from the latest W magazine cover.

The glittery red lips Rihanna wore for her W magazine cover has spawned a lip kit by make-up artist Pat McGrath.

Make-up maestro Pat was behind Rihanna’s striking cover look, though entrusted the actual cosmetics operation to her team and wasn’t on shoot.

The sparkly red lips were also seen on the runway at Paris Couture Fashion Week 16, and now Pat has brought out a version make-up fans can get their hands on, called Lust 004.

“I made the glittery red lip at Versace Couture with (shade) Vermillion Venom and glitter,” she explained to W magazine. “It’s also what was used on W’s Rihanna cover, with the jewel on the lip and the gold eye. And on W’s other cover, my team used the darker shade of Blood Wine.”

Rihanna, 28, has never shied away from bold make-up looks, and is part a growing number of celebrities who express their personalities not only through fashion, but cosmetics as well.

Pat is a fan of the shift in attitude when it comes to over the top make-up, something she is used to creating as a catwalk and celebrity make-up artist.

“What I love is that the extremes of make-up are now actually the norm,” she smiled. “These are things I’ve been doing for 20 years. It’s all about encouraging experimentation. This is for girls who are not only models, and not only girls. Everyone. Everyone LOVES to experiment with make-up and everyone wants to achieve the impossible. And they always want to know exactly how I did a look.”
