The Return of Luscious Lipstick…Hoorah!

26 Oct

We at BlushFX are huge fans of lipstick, second only to blush, of course. And make that all kinds of lipstick. Creamy, matte, sheer, light, medium, dark, high-end, drugstore or discount. We love it all!

As much as we also adore the gloss that J.Lo made famous (and yes we are a little obsessed with her) there is just something about lipstick that is…transformative, feminine, luscious, and just so darned glamorous in that femme fatale way.

So naturally we were ecstatic when we first saw the release of this gorgeous Vanesssa Paradis Rouge Coco ad for Chanel. It has the glam of old-school lipstick, but with a fresh modern take.

And from what we can see, although Vanessa looks fantastic, this photo is not overly photoshopped / airbrushed either, which has a giant stamp of approval from us.

She was chosen to represent the Peter Philip’s reformulated Rouge Coco lipstick because “it’s a lipstick for all women who understand that seduction comes from a few simple, shy gestures. And Vanessa is both childish and seductive, personifying perfectly boldness and power of emotion.”

We think the choice was perfect, and the timing is so right. As fresh and lovely as gloss can be, there’s nothing quite like the satisfying feel of wearing a pigmented lipstick. We bet our brides will be asking for this more and more in 2011!

Although this ad campaign has been out for a bit, we’ve only started our blog recently so haven’t had a chance to sing praises online until now. Yahooooo!
