Lancôme Color Design Matte Lipstick - Into The Gloss

Lancôme Color Design Matte Lipstick


"This is my new favorite lipstick—it's a really fun alternative to classic red," my friend Bianca told me. The hue in question? Lancôme's Color Design Matte Lip Color in Posh Pink. The venerable French company hired me to do a photo diary, so I took to the streets and snapped some of my favorite NYC girls in seven of the ultra-creamy shades. Needless to say, Bianca wasn't the only one who was impressed. Everyone's in the mood for a "statement lip" these days, and there are zillions of offerings. I, for one, prefer rich color, slightly matte, with no sparkles, shimmer or frost. But matte formulas are often drying, and moisturizing formulas tend to slide off your mouth. Enter Color Design. The texture is heaven. The colors are spot on. Make room in your purse.

Maria in Stylista, Bianca in Posh Pink, Erin in Corset, Kelly in Plum Show, Chelsea in Lucky Kiss, Emerald in Red Haute, and Lena in Pink Preview.

    I love hot pink as an alternative to's so fresh and it really brightens your complexion! And I think that pink is more easy to match to any complexion.

    Was the first girl in a magazine? I swear I saw her (or a very similar looking girl) in an article where they redid her hair to show off her cheekbones.

"Maria in Stylista, Bianca in Posh Pink, Erin in Corset, Kelly in Plum Show, Chelsea in Lucky Kiss, Emerald in Red Haute, and Lena in Pink Preview." Going by this order, left to right does not seem to show the right shade either. Clarify por favor.
