P.S. I Love You

The latest lipstick in Lancome's Pout-a-Porter collection, Color Fever Lipstick in P.S. Kiss, is finally here! I've been waiting since February, when I first saw it on Peter Som's runway.

P.S. Kiss is a gorgeous deep burgundy created by Lancome artistic director Gucci Westman and designer Peter Som for his Fall 2007 show. It is absolutely stunning, and a perfect complement to your fall wardrobe. Plus, I'm pretty certain that P.S. Kiss will look lovely with most complexions, and here's why:

- It's deep enough that it really makes an impact on darker skin tones, without looking washed out or bland

- Its berry tones bring a lovely warmth to olive and tan complexions

- For fair-skinned beauties, it creates a beautiful "Snow White" effect; a ruby lip against alabaster skin is so gorgeous.

Waiting lists are currently open, so call your Lancome counter or store today! Here are the full details on P.S. Kiss from our friends at Lancome:

"This must-have hue is the third in the Lancôme Pout-à-Porter series of lipsticks created exclusively for the runway. Starting October 1st, P.S. Kiss will be available in limited quantities exclusively at Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Lancôme’s five U.S. boutiques and lancôme-usa.com with a suggested retail price of $24.

The collaboration process between Gucci and Peter began a month before New York Fashion Week in January, at Peter’s design studio. They pored over Peter’s inspiration board as Gucci began mixing pigments together on the spot, creating the perfect shade to complement his collection. “My fall collection was all about rich textures and deep saturated colors – P.S. Kiss is the perfect bold stroke to go with the clothes, but it is still elegant and easy,” says Peter. Backstage at Bryant Park on the day of the show, Gucci and her team painted P.S. Kiss onto the lips of Coco Rocha, Chanel Iman, Jessica Stam and the other top models walking in Peter’s show. “Peter is such a gentleman and he’s so talented, so the process was really delightful,” says Gucci. “I think the color we came up with is reflective of his clothes—modern and sophisticated, and very pretty.”

Pout-à-Porter is a celebration of Lancôme’s ongoing support of emerging designers. Each season, Lancôme works behind the scenes with the best design new talent around, including Proenza Schouler, Behnaz Sarafpour, Peter Som, Thakoon, Rag & Bone and Chris Benz. The first Pout-à-Porter lipstick was Behnaz (created for Behnaz Sarafpour’s Fall 2006 show), which sold out before stock even hit stores. The second, Proenza Pink, for Proenza Schouler in Spring 2007, also sold out and was declared a collector’s item by The New York Times."
