Reader Question: What Lip Colour Should I Wear w My New Chloé Scent?

by Liza and Janine on 12 February 2013 · 5 comments

Marni_MFW_Spring2013When Liza suggested a few months back that we do a post together that pairs fragrance with lipstick, it made brilliant beautygeek sense. The concept combines two of our own passions, Liza’s love of scent and mine of lip colour. The combination resonated with you, too — we’ve received comments and emails asking for pairing recommendations! Naturally, we jump at any chance to let our beauty-bossiness out, so today we answer reader Jennifer, who wonders what we’d suggest she wear with her new perfume Chloé. And wouldn’t you know it, it’s a romantic fit for Valentine’s Day.


Chloé Eau de Parfum Some people might see your pale peach-colored carton, your sterling-silver trimmed, delicately be-ribboned bottle and smell your rosy self and think that you are the soul of propriety and quiet elegance. And they’d be wrong. Sure, Chloé Eau de Parfum is a beautiful rose-centric floral, with some added Lilly of the Valley to further sweeten the deal. But there is mystery roiling under that calm exterior. Anyone who wears you has hidden depths. $90 at

Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Tint in EnchantedTarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Enchanted is a bitten-lip-rose that can seem innocent or sultry depending on the twinkle in your eyes. A long-lasting moisturizing stain formula makes for an effortless finish that looks like you’ve been sipping wine between servings of sweet nothings. Blended on freshly moisturized skin, this tint can also give cheeks a sweetly bashful flush — or hot-and-bothered glow. $29 at

I like the direction of colour you are taking Janine & Liza! So let me add Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Bel Ami to the list. Like you just had a grape popsicle – sexy!

Delicious, Jane!

Also love the idea of a deeper wine-hued stain (Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Moody), like you’ve been sipping merlot.

Love Girl About Town for Valenhearts Day — it’s such an independent, sassy name and shade! Also love #pinkinsteadofred! Happy Heart Day, lovely!

Oh, Girl About Town. Excellent cheery *and* sexy pink.

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!
