Trending for 2013: saturated lip colors in matte reds, neon pinks and electric tangerines. Neons and bright florescent hues will still be going strong into summer. We will continue to see a ton of ‘pop of color’ on the lip – just exceedingly more bold and bright.
With new formulations and highly-pigmented hues, both high-end brands and drugstore brands provide the tools needed to wear these trends.
In early March, Givenchy is releasing a high-pigment, long-wearing matte lipstick – Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick. Super chic, this lipstick arrives packaged in a leather and silver case.
Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick delivers intense, vibrant color with exceptional longevity. Feels great on the lips and is available in a variety of wearable colors.
Drugstore brands are really stepping into the trends these days. They are creating innovative and quality lip products equal to that of their high-end counterparts.
L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lacquer combines the power of a lip stain with the luster of gloss. These lacquers can be compared to, my favorite, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain.
The Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids Collection is one to swipe-up immediately. A limited edition line of crazy bright, electric colors – and extremely affordable.
2013 will be a year of new categories in lip products. New Lip Oils, (explained in an upcoming post) colors and formulations will provide the consumer with millions of options to create their own trends.

As a renowned facialist and skin care expert, Olga Lorencin-Northup has spent years studying and perfecting skin, client-by-client, hour-by-hour, and pore-by-pore.
A native of Yugoslavia, Olga was classically trained in the European tradition. Rigorous regimens and timeless ingredients shaped attention to every detail.
Moving to Los Angeles, Olga worked in the prestigious Ole Henriksen salon where the ability to achieve immediate and long-lasting results for her clients soon captured the attention of Hollywood’s most famous faces. Feeling the desire to share her skin care philosophy with even more people, Olga opened Kinara Skincare Clinic in 2001 and her product line was invented – in the treatment room, not the board room.
Combining old world recipes with cutting edge cosmeceutical ingredients resulted in a concise line of must-have products designed for the good of the skin delivering dermatological change with unapologetic pleasure.
