The New Pale Lip

COMMENT

This far into Fashion Week, it's clear that the lip is back.

Still, there will always be a place for the pale lip look, and this season it has evolved from super-matte nudes to pale pinks, both matte and (slight) shimmer.

Lips at Narciso Rodriguez (top left) were pale candy pink and the glossiest of the set (see also: Luella Bartley);

Marc Jacobs (top center) showed a similar look but in a matte finish.

Gucci Westman for Lancome created a new twist on the trend at Proenza Schouler (top right);

the milky, pink-white lips were inspired by good old Pink Zinc for a modern surfer girl look.

Westman's look for Behnaz Sarafpour (bottom left) was the most natural and minimal of the six featured here;

just a hint of color, created in part by blush for a soft matte finish.

She also created the look for Rag and Bone (bottom center), pinky-beige lips finished with powder for a matte finish.

Finally, Carolina Herrera (bottom right) showed early '60s influences with pale pink shimmer.2
