Prada s/s 2010 campaign

As soon as I saw Prada’s spring campaign, I immediately exclaimed (in my head, of course): “I want those lips!”

I needed it right away! That amazing burnt orange with candy coated gloss! Prada’s runway make-up is usually created by Pat McGrath (who is a freaking genius) of Cover Girl. So I ran across the street to a drugstore and… no luck. Nothing even close!

Thankfully, the staff at Nylon magazine were just as obsessed! They, having way better connections than I do, found out that it was actually a mix of Makeup For Ever’s “Orange Red #204” and Cover Girl’s Shineblast “Fire” on top. Thanks Nylon!

Makeup For Ever’s “Orange Red #204” ($19 CAD at Sephora)


Cover Girl ShineBlast “Fire” ($9 CAD at Cover Girl counters)
But if you are too lazy to mix and layer (like myself) and want the convenience of one product, I found two great lipstick alternatives that are (almost) as exciting.

MAC “Morange” ($14 CAD at MAC)
Cargo “Lola” ($20 CAD at Beautymark)

So kissable!
