Nina Ricci F/W 2011
This look from Nina Ricci made my Top 5: Fall Beauty Trends on Vitamin Daily. It’s a gorgeous technicolour salmon, right? And another brainchild of Pat McGrath but, unfortunately, it was a pigment that she mixed especially for the show. No worries, I tracked down a few close matches.
Spring Fresh Salmon’ ($17.50 at MAC)
This one is an exact match but it was produced in limited quantities last year (if you have it, lucky you!) so, chances are, it will be a tough find. Also give ‘Vegas Volt’ a try — it’s a coral orange-y pink and pretty similar.
NARS ‘Bolero’ Matte Lip Pencil ($30 at NARS)
But you’ll be able to track down NARS’ ‘Bolero’. It’s new-ish and a very rich salmon pink. I love using NARS’ lip pencils for high intensity colour. ‘Bolero’ also comes in a gloss form, if you prefer a little shine.
A couple of others to consider: Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in ‘Pink in the Afternoon’ ($9.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart) and Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lipstick in ‘Coquette’ ($40 at The Bay).
Salmon, salmon… What do you think? Will you try?
