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…
Loose Lips’ NY Lumi-shine lip gloss in Fate – Piha Black layered over top.
L’Oreal’s Cherry Freeze lipstick topped with Piha Black.
NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Roman Holiday with Piha Black over top.
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!
