Though the thought of black lipstick tends to conjure up Marilyn Manson flashbacks, the new dark lip is decidedly more lush, glossy and sophisticated. To help achieve this hot lip look, Lancome’s new artistic director for makeup, Aaron de May, has created a sexy new lip color set that’s scheduled to launch in November.
The set includes a Color Fever Lipstick in Piha Red, a shade which was inspired by the signature red soles of Christian Louboutin shoes. (ah, my heart is melting!) In addition, and perhaps even more interestingly, the set will also include a black Color Fever lipgloss. You can wear the products separately or slick the lipgloss on over the lipstick to achieve a multi-dimensional dark lip (no Marilyn Manson here please).
Only 500 of the sets will be available in the United States, exclusively at lancome-usa.com, the five Lancôme boutiques and at the Bloomingdale’s 59th Street location in New York City. If you’re going to be in New York and you want to get on the waiting list at the Bloomingdale’s on 59th St., give them a call at 212-705-2886 to have your name added. My name is on it.
