If you’ve picked up any of the new September 2008 fashion magazines, you’ve certainly noticed that black lipstick is going to be a big beauty trends for fall is. The look may be gorgeously goth on the runway. In real life? Not so much.
But if you dare to try this tricky trend, might I make a suggestion? Black lipgloss. Wait…hear me out. A low-pigment black gloss is easy to wear alone and can be blended with other shades for a little drama.
So where are you supposed to find black lipgloss? Lancôme will be debuting such a product in November–Color Fever Gloss in Piha Black. It is part of a luxe lip set created by Aaron de Mey, Lancôme’s new artistic director.
Priced at $48, the kit features the gloss and Color Fever Lipstick in Piha Red, inspired by the red of a Christian Louboutin sole.
Aaron is a big adherent of having fun with makeup, so the idea is to wear the colors alone or to customize your own shade by mixing them together. Aaron also likes to use Piha Black as an eye gloss.
Only 500 of the sets will be available in the United States, exclusively at the Bloomingdale’s 59th Street location, lancome-usa.com and the five Lancôme boutiques. The waiting list at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street has just opened…so reserve yours now by calling 212.705.2886.
