We're in the home stretch of NYFW (and our Lip Diary), and the long days/late nights are starting to manifest themselves in under-eye woes and lower-back pain. (How did I do this all the time when I was 21?!) This morning, I slept in and missed Barry's Bootcamp, but I'm going to tell myself that sprinting from meeting to meeting to show to show is exercise enough. What's not aerobic is the time I spend in my chair and under the glow of my Apple monitor, picking photos, editing interviews, and pulling together our backstage coverage. It can get a little... S.A.D. Thank the lord for Armani Lip Maestro in #402, which delivers a jolt of energy not unlike a cup of Intelligentsia coffee, but instead of the shakes, you're left with a bright, fire-engine-red lip. And though my humdrum blue sweater might not catch the eye of Tommy Ton or land me on Garance Doré, you better believe this pout will.
