Every now and then an ad comes along that makes you sigh and marvel at its sheer wondrousness. This is one of those ads. Remember a few months ago when I told you about the collaboration between Vanessa Paradis and Chanel? Well no one, not even me, could've predicted how beautiful it would be. Not that it was ever in doubt, of course—not with Peter Phillips at the helm, but it's exceeded all of my expectations and then some. Phillips says, “Women seem to have forgotten how to apply lipstick. We have a whole generation of lip gloss girls. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with lip gloss—but there is something so feminine about the act of applying lipstick. I want to make lipstick as easy to apply as lip gloss, and for a long-lasting formula to feel comfortable on the lips.” I, for one, am sold. Hurry up March 14.
