Runway Beauty: Thakoon

Get ready for the next lipstick in Lancome's Pout-a-Porter series! This pretty pink lip was custom-blended by Gucci Westman for Thakoon's Spring 2008 show and will be available in a few months, following in the footsteps of Behnaz, Proenza Pink, and P.S. Kiss.

Mixed from shades of beige, fleshy pink, and blue fuschia, the Thakoon lip is a creamy stain with a satiny, translucent finish. Gucci calls it a "fresh, uncomplicated lip for spring." I love it! Of all the Pout-a-Porter lipsticks so far, I think this is the one I'm looking forward to the most. I love a good blue-based pink that's sheer and fresh.

To round out the look - inspired by a Japanese girl in Kauai - skin was "bronzed and minimal," with a liquid bronzer dappled over Lancome Blush Subtil in Cappucine and Magique Blush in Mocha Creme. Brows were defined with a combination of Le Crayon Poudre in Sable and Brunet, applied with a Giorgio Armani Eye Contour Brush. Color Design Eye Shadow in Couture was applied to lower lids, while upper lids were washed in a translucent, barely-there veil of aqua shadow (Shu Uemura #610).
