Pucker Up! Make Your Pout-a-Porter Beauty Mark
An image may be worth a thousand words, but a sassy little product name can be just as enticing.
Admit it, you've probably purchased a little cosmetic pick me up in part because you liked the name. Guilty as charged.
Now Lancome is giving all you PYTs the chance to make your beauty mark. Chris Benz is the latest fashion provocateur to partner with the company on an as-yet-unnamed shade for their Pout-a-Porter series--past collaborators include Peter Som, Thakoon, and Behnaz Sarafpour.
Lancome is letting you name the shade, which is inspired by his Spring 2010, as long as it's incredibly creative and awesome. Naturally.
You can post your suggestions to Benz's fan page on Facebook. Anyone can post, and the winner gets a $500 Lancôme gift certificate, bragging rights, and of course, a supply of the lipsticks, which tend to sell out in a heartbeat.
I'm off to the Lancome beauty counter. Uh, strictly for research purposes, of course.
Deadline is July 12, at 5PM EST. Good luck!
