I'd say don't go for something too strong with your lips since it'll clash with the powerful blue. Just wear some slightly tinted natural lipbalm.

i like the way a *LIGHT* pink lipstick looks with blue shadow....i can even rocommend the one i use: Chanel Aqualumiere lipshine in "Ipanema"...i know it sounds kinda tacky, but the color is sheer, but it gives off that slightly hint of pink....it just looks great with ANY shadow! Good luck!

Don't kill me now - but I used to wear some orange-ish lipstick with blue eyeshadow. I swear, it worked!

Don't kill me too but I love blue eyeshadow. But like what KimKhuu and Shoe Gal said, the lips have to be really sheer to make it work. I usually use a pale lip gloss (Chanel) with the darker blues or a very very light red tint with the paler blues.

Haha, I actually know about the rule - if you accentuate the eyes, keep the lips in a "neutral" colour - but I wasn't going for the more accepted look I guess, so well...

try some clear gloss, or a gloss with a hint of pink

I'd go nude on the lips to really accentuate that blue on your eyes.

So did I.

Notice no mention of how recently this might've been.

it's probably because orange is the complement to blue (on the color wheel)...
