Last week I had the pleasure of talking Fall 2011 beauty trends with the amazingly talented makeup artist, Pat McGrath (who also serves as global creative design director for Cover Girl). She's just come straight off the fashion runways where she was working her makeup magic for all the major designers.
One look in particular that struck me was from the F/W 2011 Lowe show (shown left), where Pat created a chocolate brown lip. She told us it had been a long time since we've seen this color on the runway and shared her secret: it's CoverGirl Queen Collection Lipcolor Lipstick, Javalicious Q475 (shown above), from CoverGirl’s new Queen collection. I happen to have had the chance to give this shade a try, and I love it! It's a great way to do a modern, sexy bold lip when you don't want to go red. It's a rich, true chocolate brown shade with just a touch of deep red. The formula is highly pigmented, yet smooth, hydrating and light as a feather. Try it for a change of pace! -RLB
