Have you noticed a lotta lavender lips lately? I have. Lady Gaga kicked off the trend in February when she paired a light purple pout with an oversized hair bow. Since then, they’ve appeared sporadically on the Fashion Week runways. But now I can’t help but notice that they’re cropping up everywhere.
The look is like an oxygen-deprived pale pink mouth. To create a lavender lip to compliment my caramel complexion, I use the duo seen at left: MAC Lipstick in Syrup and MAC Plushglass in Foolishly Fab (which has, foolishly, been discontinued).

On Friday night, I was among the 8.2 million people who watched Rihanna’s 20/20 interview. But afterwards, while most people were thinking, “Wow…that Rihanna is so brave to publicly discuss such a horrifying personal tragedy” or “That jackass, Chris Brown, deserves whatever is coming to him” – I was thinking, “What products can I use to copy Rihanna’s icy nude lip look?”
So I did what any self-respecting beauty junkie would do. I broke out my lip gloss/lipstick stash and played makeup mad scientist/mixologist. I found that creating Rihanna’s 20/20 look is quite easy to do. All you need is a nude lipstick that is lighter than your complexion, and a silver gloss. Be sure to apply foundation to lips before trying this look, as the foundation will help cancel out any pink in your lips and let the lip color stand alone.
Here are some combos that I think would pass RiRi scrutiny:
Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga have been named the latest faces of the MAC AIDS Fund. The newest campaign, dubbed “From Our Lips,” will break on Feb. 25. MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick and Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick, $14 each, will launch in North America on March 18 and globally throughout the month, with 100 percent of the proceeds being donated to the MAC AIDS Fund. The MAC AIDS Fund has invested more than $150 million to organizations in more than 67 countries since its founding in 1994.
