think pink

So the inner “kikay” in me beckons. I suddenly crave for a pink lipstick.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not quite over with the bloody red phase of lipsticks (Sorry, Alvin!). But one of those areas that are yet to be tapped, lipstick-wise, is the pink color. Not just blush or timid pink — I want the LOOK AT ME, I’M ELECTRIFYINGLY PINK!-kind-of-shade.

That said, I went on with my  usual research (I never barge into specialty stores without doing so!) and found out the picture perfect brand for me: NARS. I went to MAC site as well; but quite surprisingly, I’m leaning towards the former. Based on the reviews (and texture), I’m opting for a semi-matte type (classified as satin if it’s MAC) — which NARS apparently offers.

I have narrowed down my search into two shades of (ELECTRIFYINGLY!) pink:

(…whose lipstick name, by the way, reminds me of Audrey Hepburn‘s movie of the same title!)

If you think odd of the lipstick name, I have a trivia for you (thank God for internet!): François named this shade of pink after Elsa Schiaparelli, a legendary Italian designer famous for her bright pinks. Her significance in the fashion industry was once more manifested via Anne Wintour no less, thanks to the recent 2012 Met Gala:

Before I start jumping over to fashion, dresses, and MET Gala — YES! The debate still stands:

WHICH SHADE OF PINK?!
