Can’t get enough pink lipstick? You are not alone. You knew that, of course, but pink seems especially hot right now. Last week we looked at Armani’s “Hot” pink lipstick capsule collection; today I’d like to discuss Lancome’s take on the pink theme.
Lancome’s seven new lipsticks are their Color Design formula ($22). Four of the shades are new; S.O.S. Pink, Pink in the Limo, and Pink to the Club are reincarnated Color Fever shades.
S.O.S. Pink (cream) is a bright bubblegum pink creme. Confetti Pink (shimmer) is a more sheer, not-as-bright, blue-pink with pink and blue sparkles. Pink in the Limo (sheen) is a slightly shimmery, cool violet-rose. Rekindle (cream) is a bright warm strawberry pink (red-pink) cream. Tempt Me (shimmer) is sheer with gold sparkle. Pink to the Club (shimmer) is sheer mauvey-browned pink with tons of gold sparkle. Intense Fuchsia (cream) is bright, cool, flamingo-, schiap-pink.
All seven shades are permanent additions to the line, and altogether I think they give pink-lovers a nice range of options. What do you think? See any you love?
These shades are already available on Lancome-usa.com, and through July 21, you can choose four samples with a $35 purchase and code CYSJULY. Alternately, use code 3PCJULY for three deluxe samples or AJULY for four samples and free shipping over $45 (both good through the end of the month).
Bonus trivia: Why does “schiap” always connote the same bright, cool shade of pink? The answer is an Italian designer named Elsa Schiaparelli, rival to Coco Chanel. Click here to read her Wikipedia article and scratch the surface of her tremendous contributions to fashion as we know it.
