Looks with Lancome’s Piha Black lip gloss

by Bionic Beauty on 28.Apr.2009 · 6 comments

Lancome’s Spring 2009 collection, Pink Irreverence, featured some gorgeous pink, magenta and other rosey shades. But the star in my mind was the Piha Black lipgloss.

Even though so many of my friends and family looked at me like I was nuts for wanting a black lipgloss, I searched high and low. Every store in my area was sold out. Finally Mo, from Mythbuster Beauty (Side note… Mo, I love you!!), shipped me a mysterious package. Squeals of delite erupted through our house for the next few hours (yep, I admit, I squealed).

And since some ladies still doubt it’s wearability, I’m here with a collection of photos showing off cool ways to wear Lancome’s Piha Black gloss without looking like a goth-princess…

I LOVE wearing my Piha Black over any pink lipcolor (like the NARS pencil above), guaranteed pretty for spring. But I’ve been combining Piha Black with pretty much every color I own and haven’t anything that was bad yet. The Piha Black adds depth and dimension and a perfect amount of sparkle. If you want to perk up a matte lipcolor, this is a quick and gorgeous way!
Piha Black is $25 at LancomeUSA.com.

Okay, what if you WANT to look like a gothic princess? Does it look black at all on your lips, if you wear it plain?
I have to admit, I so want my own Phia Black now. Black lip gloss! It’s like a Rebel Yell in a tube!

It’s looks like a cool, deep shade of red/purple!

You can do just about anything with this, for real. It can be a barely there sheer color or you can really lay it on for a darker color. I would recommend exfoliating your lips beforehand if you plan to wear it alone and heavy, as it can bunch up on and flakes you have. I love it over my lip colors that are just a touch too bright or a smidge too boring. I’m totally surprised at how much I love it.
Is it sad that the counter manager saw me walk by and said “Hey, you bought my Piha Blacks, didn’t you? I saw they were gone and I knew it was you!”? Glad I could make you squeal, thanks for the shout out!

This is a great post! I just received the Phia Black and Pink Irreverence and was wondering how do I wear this. Now I know. Good post!
