Magdalena Frackowiak graces the cover of J. Crew’s latest catalog.
Once again, J. Crew has me giddy. Not for the clothing, jewelry and shoes on its catalog’s pages am I excited, but for the gorgeous lip shades worn so effortlessly by their models.
I was so enamored with the lip colors in the April ’10 catalog that I contacted J. Crew. (In fact, I e-mailed several months ago regarding the gorgeous bright peach lip color worn by the models for their wedding campaign; it was “Poppy” lip liner by Prestige, for those interested.) Turns out the shades in the current catalog are “Buff” and “Tangerine” from Bobbi Brown’s current Lip Gloss line. Lovely shades, indeed, but at $20 a piece, some girls like myself must look elsewhere. I’ve found some similar shades at a fraction of the cost. Now, go out and have some fun with your lip color – let it inspire you!
