Christopher Kane for Lancome
Kate Moss will definitely be carrying around a lot more lip-gloss this spring. One of the model's favorite British designers, Christopher Kane, has collaborated with Lancôme for a limited edition line of the cult favorite Juicy Tubes!
The Juicy Tubes World Tour features nine very wearable colors inspired by four of the most stylish cities in the world and in shades complimentary to Kane’s own Spring 2008 collection.
Tokyo Plum Blossom
Red Hot New York
Fifth Avenue Frosting
Grand Café Crème Brûlée
The tubes themselves are all dressed up in four illustrations of Kane’s spring collection. My personal favorite is Paris Bubbly a pale, champagne gold that is universally flattering alone or over a lipstick to give it a pop!
One of my complaints about Juicy Tubes in the past was how gloopy the gloss felt on my mouth. It cried out for constant touch ups and then practically glued lips shut with its sticky substance. There was something about them that reminded me a little too much of a kid wearing Bonne Bell. I always knew I could find a similar color, for a lower price, with a better texture.
Well, the Lancôme gods must have heard my prayers because while Juicy Tubes World Tour do taste yummy (Paris Bubbly tastes like champagne; Red Hot New York is cinnamon flavored) they are also smooth, lightweight, and moisturizing. Between the gorgeous colors, excellent texture, and Christopher Kane’s involvement the Juicy Tubes World Tour are worth their $18 price tag.
Interested? Get to a Lancôme counter fast as four of the colors have already sold out on Lancôme’s website. But don’t worry I did some investigative journalism to find out which stores around Boston are stocked so you don’t have to run to a lame mall only to find a blank faced sales girl whose never even heard of dear Christopher.
