At Attract, we have seen (and worn) each shade of pink lipstick you would consider—pale and sheer, shiny and matte, neon and glossy—so it is uncommon that we’re shocked by any colour we see on the runway. However, proving that there is all the time an exception to the rule, we went sort of psycho for the vivid pinky-salmon lipstick on the fashions at Nina Ricci’s fall present. It seemed contemporary, cool, distinctive. The one downside? We did not suppose we may recreate the bizarre shade at dwelling. “We combined it,” stated make-up artist Pat McGrath backstage of the colour, which was impressed by a swatch of material from the clothes assortment. As is most frequently the case with make-up artists’ high-fashion lipstick concoctions, it’s totally arduous to search out the precise colour in a single present tube. So you’ll be able to think about our pleasure once we got here throughout not only one, however two near-perfect matches whereas going by means of lipsticks for an upcoming story.
The primary, Nars Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Bolero (above), has a wealthy, opaque texture equivalent to that used at Nina Ricci. The second is Topshop lipstick in Ohh La La (under), which is the perfect steadiness of pink and orange.
