The Return of the Lip

Finally! Ding dong, the corpse-like fleshtoned matte lip is dead.

Coral red lips are huge on the runways this week; certainly yet another 80s-inspired look, but one that's so refreshing after a season of endless matte nudes. From left: Tuleh, Jovovich-Hawk, Lacoste. The look at Tuleh was created by Polly Osmond for MAC and features everyone's favorite red lipstick, Russian Red, topped with a touch of orange-gold Meltdown in the center of the lip. The makeup at Tuleh is always so beautiful (remember last season's berry lip?) and this time I think it eclipsed the collection itself.

For an effect similar to those shown above but without the texture of a lipstick, try Delux Beauty lipgloss in Rowan, a gorgeous sheer coral red.
