It's rare to get a model in the office who's game to go all out. That's the thing about genetically blessed people—they certainly look good in makeup, but they don't always know what to do with it.

Viktoriya is the exception that proves the rule. Sit this girl down in front of a storage box full of makeup (that's how we roll at ITG—big Tupperwares full of blush), and she'll dive in. Before we could get a word in edgewise, she had applied a full face of foundation and was halfway done with a smokey eye. She's a woman after our own hearts.

But a blank (albeit icy) canvas is probably the best way to showcase Sally Hansen's Rose Glass shade (full disclosure: She's wearing Lipstick Queen's Seven Deadly Sins Gloss in Avarice). The semi-translucent pinky color is more a nail gloss than a nail polish, making it a tad more forgiving for those new to the at-home manicure. That, and it's an accessible bit of Rodarte—the Mulleavy sisters developed the shade with Ms. Hansen for their Fall 2015 show. But much like Rodarte's approach to knitwear, Rose Glass knows no season. It's light and airy and dreamy. Plus, the top coat, Sally's Insta-Dri formula, means that you can immediately unbutton your pants, do the dishes, and pop open a can of soda after application with little consequence. So good, you can't afford not to give it a chance.

A caveat: Rose Glass isn't available online. BUT! It is stocked in most Walgreens, CVS and Target stores nationwide (we've been assured). For those shopping from the comfort of their desk chair, fear not: Pink Pong offers a slightly more opaque version of the same color, equal to two coats of Rodarte's shade. Accessible, very.
