Peter Som, who is probably best known for his elegant, refined and feminine fashions on the runway, is testing the beauty waters…sort of. The prominent designer recently teamed up with Lancome for their third Pout-a-Porter lipstick, PS Kiss, which is currently on sale at Nordstrom.com.
The idea is sort of like the masstige craze that’s taken the fashion industry – high-end designers creating more affordable lines for retailers like Target and Kohl’s – except that these limited edition Pout-a-Porter lipsticks aren't exactly cheap. At $24 a tube, they’re a bit on the pricey side, but that’s to be expected with anything exclusive.
Behnaz Sarafpour and Proenza Schouler, both GO alums, created the two previous shades for this fashion-beauty tag team, but we are really big fans of Som’s just-right red. It's so perfect, in fact, that all the models at his Fall 2007 show wore the hue. It’s bold and bright so you can wear it matte or high-shine depending on your mood.
Every woman needs a radiant red lipstick and this one might just work for all of us.
