The Noir Lip

In Beauty Spy on October 10, 2008 at 7:06 am


While Hollywood is still all about retro reds, lips are getting yet another seductive update this fall – Black, or near black, lips. Since no one could argue that this is easy to pull off in real life, check out Lancôme’s low-pigment black lip glaze slated for release in November. While it looks black in the tube, it goes on sheer. It can also be layered over other lip colors for a black berry effect. Only 500 will be available, and only at Bloomingdale’s on 59th St.

Rumor has it the waitlist is already filling up fast! (If you want it, call 212-705-2886 to reserve yours for $48).


The limited-edition gloss debuts as part of a luxe lip set also including Color Fever Lipstick in Piha Red, which is also derived from high fashion – it’s meant to be the same color as a Louboutin sole.

Matching your bag and shoes? Old news. Matching your lip color to the sole of your shoes is more like it.

IN THE MAKEUP THINKS: The neighbors may not understand, but Vogue magazine does. Along with most of London, Paris, and Milan. Dear friends, get the sheer noir lip on your personal gift registries as fast as you can.
