At Valentino’s Parisian Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture show, Pierpaolo Piccioli unveiled a collection which reeked of modern glamour.  It-girl, Kaia Gerber, wore a fuchsia confection of taffeta, topped with a feathery crown. To accompany the look, makeup artist, Pat McGrath, chose a mid-toned lavender lipstick, Faux Pas, from her Lust: Mattetrance line.  The Pantone Color Of The Year, Ultra Violet, has been so popular that we have even spotted it on Rihanna (in Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle).  Available at every price point, lavender lipsticks also come from Smashbox (Fair Play), NYX Maccaron Lippies (Violet), MAC Cosmetics (Up The Amp), Urban Decay (Pallor), ColourPop (Cheetah), and Lime Crime (Wisteria).
