The fourth and final lipstick in Lancome’s coveted Pout-à-Porter designer lipstick series will make it’s debut tomorrow. The models at Thakoon’s Fall 2008 show may have been the first to try but now so can the rest of us. Along with the L.U.C.I. collection, this is Gucci Westman’s final product as creative director of Lancome. Beginning tomorrow, Pixel Pink will be available in limited quantities on lancome-usa.com and on March 1st it will debut exclusively at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Lancome’s five U.S. boutiques.
Pixel Pink is described as a beautiful sheer raspberry shade. Designer Thakoon, who collaborated with Ms. Westman on this shade, had a very specific muse in mind. He envisioned a young, modern Japanese woman who leaves her life behind and escapes to Hawaii. Once there, she loses herself in the surf and sun. “Her makeup is very minimalist,” says Gucci. “I could see her dabbing this color on her lips to go with the tan and flushed cheeks she has from surfing all day.” As you can see on the model pictured here, this shade would look great on anyone. Let’s hope this sticks around long enough for me to snap it up.
