It's a priori a daring move, I daresay, but black is stylish, so it seems there is potential for it to translate into something as perfectly acceptable as a little black dress (worn on your lips, mind you). YSL now proposes their own limited-edition tube called Gloss Pur Black.
Depending on the way you apply it, it reportedly can play with various shades of blackish,...
"From plum to ebony, it dresses lips in an infinite range of shades, depending on how it is applied - feather light or rich and bold. Transparent yet intense, it plays on the depths of black and the pure shine of a sparkle-free formula."It is a black without shimmer while the Lancome one looks like it has sparklies in it (more anon).
You can pre-order it now for $ 28 and it will ship out around 9/19/2008
Are you ready for a redux of the Theda Bara Vamp look?
