Rainbow Kisses From Across The Pond

-------


With New York fashion week behind us and the London shows quickly drawing to a close, there have been enough cameos by statement lips of the red, pink, and berry varieties to make a well-stocked collection of lipstick/lip stains compulsory for next season. At yesterday’s House of Holland show, the designer looked outside the box, as he is wont to do, and introduced a glossy cobalt into the equation to round out the dark lavender and fluorescent tomato pouts he also sent down the runway courtesy of makeup artist Lucia Pica. Seeing as how Holland capitalized on the popularity of black lips last season by choosing a midnight purple shade for his presentation, the off-kilter color wasn’t that jarring coming from him. It was, however, a bit of a surprise when it made a repeat appearance at Paul Smith Women—albeit in a more matte, Ceylon incarnation—joined by another round of bright orange-red, a deep wine, and even a lone shade of green. We’d say that the color blue is best left to the catwalk, although who knew the obsidian craze from last year would’ve been such a hit? Perhaps a few MAC Pro Lipmix shades for at-home color blending might also be a worthwhile investment come spring.

    “Ceylon”? I think you mean “cerulean”. Cerulean is a shade of blue, Ceylon is the old colonial name for Sri Lanka.

    Actually, Ceylon is a shade of light blue that references Ceylon sapphires, or as you correctly pointed out, sapphires from the region of Sri Lanka that aren’t as deep as more standard versions of the gem. But Cerulean might actually be a better descriptive word here.
