Thakoon and Gucci Westman collaborated very closely on this shade, and it will be her last limited edition for Lancôme.
Thakoon had a very specific muse in mind for this collection. He envisioned a young, modern Japanese woman who leaves her life behind and escapes to Hawaii. Once there, she loses herself in the surf and sun. “Her makeup is very minimalist,” says Gucci. “I could see her dabbing this color on her lips to go with the tan and flushed cheeks she has from surfing all day.”
I received a small sample of this color (it was about the size of a pea), and I can assure you that the color is every bit as amazing as it appears in this picture. I know I'll be ordering a tube, will you?
Available today on-line in limited quantities on Lancôme's Web Site
March 1st it will debut exclusively at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Lancôme’s five U.S. boutiques
Update- I've just ordered my Pixel Pink, with a Ombres Glacee highlighter as well. Don't forget to do a quick search for deals (there is one for 3 free samples and free shipping over $35, another for 3 sample lipsticks and free shipping over $35), and make sure you sign up for a Lancôme account- you'll get yet another free sample (yup, that's 4 total)! Even better you'll get the e-mails about both on-line and local Lancôme deals! I'll have my Pixel Pink in 5-7 business days!
