Anthropologie Gets Lippy-------
Since beefing up its beauty offerings two years ago with a designated apothecary to house hard-to-come-by niche fragrances, a choice selection of makeup from brands like Julie Hewett and Lipstick Queen, and skincare from green-leaning greats like Tata Harper—not to mention a lion’s share of exclusive collaborations—Anthropologie has quickly become a go-to for beauty seekers looking for the road less traveled. This month, the brand breaks new ground with its first in-house lipstick line. Albeit, which is inspired by the glamour of eras gone by with a screen siren-appropriate gold bullet to match, features six different creamy shades of pout-perfecting, argan oil-infused pigment: Bisque is a soft, honeyed beige; Claret is a rose berry; Mauvette is a phenomenal nude; Peony is a medium, retro pink; Vermilion is the collection’s take on classic crimson with undertones of blue-violet; and Mulberry, our reigning fave, is a sheer blackberry stain. A transparent take on Fall’s favorite deep, dark bordeaux mouth, it’s an easy-wearing way to be on trend and still enjoy the finer things in life—you know, like eating, drinking, and indulging in conversation without the fear of your lipstick making moves.
