First it Was Behnaz, Now It's Proenza Pink

Last year Lancome created a fury with their beautiful Behnaz red lipstick, the first in their Pout-à-Porter series. It was produced in very limited qualities and it sold out before it was even released. Only a lucky few possess this lipstick, Annie at Blogdorft Goodman being one of those lucky gals. This time, Gucci Westman Neville, has created a new lipstick for us to lust after… Proenza Pink.

Lancome's Proenza Pink Lipstick This lipstick was created in collaboration with with Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the designers behind Proenza Schouler. It was also inspired by the collections new designs, visions of cool surfer girls, Stephen Sprouse and a touch of ‘80s icon Molly Ringwald came to Gucci’s mind.

While the waiting list for Proenza Pink opened on February 1st, you can call any of the Lancome boutiques or counters at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus to get on a waiting list. Proenza Pink will be available in limited quantities this March.

Buxom Lips with Bare Escentuals

What smells like yummy cinnamon buns and leaves your lips with a beautiful shine? Bare Escentual’s new Buxom Lips Lipgloss.

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips Lipgloss The idea behind this lipgloss is that it plumps your lips with a cooling tingle. I didn’t see much of a difference in the fullness of my lips since they seem to be pretty resistant to lip plumping products, so I’ll let that slide but I can definitely feel the tingling. 🙂 There are other reasons to love this gloss though. For one, I love the colors it comes in, there’s something to like about each one of them. I have developed a strong attachment to Amber, a great peach shade. I’ve been wearing it quite a bit over my beloved lip stains.

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips Lipgloss It’s consistency is good as well, it’s not so thick that if feels like your lips are stuck together. One thing that surprised me about this product was it’s size. When it comes to lipgloss, I’m so use to seeing skinny little tubes like MAC’s Lipglass. It’s good to see more companies embracing the “bigger is better” notion. Also, I like how my lips feel when I wear this gloss… they feel soft and luscious. Maybe it’s the infusion of antioxidant vitamins A and E that keep lips protected.
