Lips: Chanel Calypso
I always wondered how "the color of the season" happens. Is it the color of the season because magazines proclaim it? Or beauty companies bombard us with it? How does virtually every company come out with the same colors at the same time? And how do we really feel about Pantone and the yearlong Tangerine Tango plug? I personally wish they weren't so blatant about it.
Anyway, I happened to notice I had two of the "colors of the season" on yesterday (in more ways than one, apparently - see iPhone cover below!). They make a fabulous combination.
On my fingers is Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily from the recently released fan collection. You would think by now I should be sick of blue polishes, but I swear Ji can make even clear polish interesting, much less a color that has the potential for so much nuance. Aqua Lily is a teal blue that reflects violet shimmer in the light. My pictures don't do this color justice - I can't seem to capture reflected shimmer! This color requires two coats to achieve opacity, and is consistent to the RBL formula, which is to say smooth, pigmented, and an absolute pleasure to apply.
Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily retails for $20 and is exclusively available at rescuebeauty.com. Good luck to anyone who's jonesing to snag one!
