Revel in the breath-taking rhapsody of Spring 2013! Introducing two brand new lipsticks and three new nail lacquers, the Deborah Lippmann Spring 2013 Color Collection offers a variety of bold and subtle hues that are romantically feminine.

Expanding her lipstick collection, Deborah Lippmann is launching two bright shades that give the collection a sexy punch. The formula is a unique hybrid, offering the rich, creamy texture of a lipstick and the sheer, high-shine finish of a lip gloss. She Bangs is a ravishing red that makes a bold lip statement. Call Me Maybe is a sheer cheeky coral that will be as popular as the song it was named after. They are universal yet vibrant and playful shades that are the perfect complement to any spring wardrobe. “These are two very wearable lip colors that are fun, happy and will make you look and feel beautiful,” says Deborah. “Just apply and go – if you don’t have time for anything else. A great lip shade will make you look put together and sophisticated.” she adds.

The collection also introduces Moon Rendezvous, a faded slate blue shimmer, Careless Whisper, a scintillating nude shimmer and Groove Is In The Heart, a flamingo pink crème. Deborah’s nail lacquers never cease to impress with modern, sophisticated and easily wearable hues for all ages.

Nail Lacquer ($17.00) (Limited Edition)

Available at www.deborahlippmann.com, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.

  • Moon Rendezvous Faded slate blue (Shimmer)

Deborah Lippmann takes glitter to another level once again with an unexpected juxtaposition, combining black glitter with traditional soft pastel hues. Staccato is a trend-in-the-making with an innovative finish available in three deliciously energizing shades reminiscent of your favorite cotton candy, oreo and mint chocolate chip ice-creams!

The collection introduces I’m Not Edible, a panicked pink staccato, Polka Dots And Moonbeams, a sprightly black and white staccato and Rockin’ Robin, a mint mayhem staccato. These shades offer the perfect balance of femininity with a rich crème base and a jazzed-up edginess with the speckled black glitter.

“When creating this formula, I was thinking of ways to make black glitter wearable. I like how the glitter pops with a crème base, and I love that we took very wearable spring shades and gave them more pizzazz – even a bit of an edge,” said Deborah.

Nail Lacquer ($19.00) (Limited Edition)

Deborah Lippmann products are available at www.deborahlippmann.com, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, April 2013.

“This Spring I love the mix of vivid shades with nudes, women are traditionally drawn to color but afraid of it – this way they can play and customize to their own desires. At the Giorgio Armani S/S 13 show – I used the soft grey tone to create a muted graphic shape – then a thick liner was drawn with the Swimming Pool Turquoise blue, and then blended with the taupe – this gives a soft pop of glamorous, sensual color. Any woman can wear it.” — Linda Cantello, International Makeup Artist for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics
