I’ve always found “fuchsia” a tricky word. To me the s should come before the c. Like “fuschia”. So when I spell it, I have to remind myself that the correct way is the way that looks totally off.


Anyway, here’s Emma Stone last night at the Conde Nast Traveller Annual Hot List party smartly avoiding being washed out in neutral tones with her blonde hair with bright pink lips and a light-ish eye. Love it. But then again I’m partial to it. As you may have seen on etalk, and as I’ve mentioned several times, I’ve been strictly fuchsia since last year. On tv, off tv, all the time, with our without glasses, totally obsessed. And I keep forgetting to namecheck my brand.

Emma’s lips however, according to Us Weekly, were achieved via custom blend by her makeup artist using Mark Pro Glimmer lip powder in Punk and Mark Glow Baby Glow lip gloss in Girly Girl. That seems like a lot of work when you can just, like, buy the colour proper and not have to f-ck around with swirling it around in combination.

I use Vincent Longo thinstick lipstick. The shade is “Priscilla”. Which is another reason why I’m addicted. Elvis! It’s not cheap though, I know. But the texture of this sh-t is incredible. And it stays on forever. Last week, right before I left, Fiona and I went swimming after I went on air for my entertainment hit on the 5pm news. I swam a kilometre, went back in the change room, and a woman stopped me and asked “is that colour tattooed to your mouth, what is it?” BECAUSE IT HADN’T MOVED.

In Vancouver I get mine at Kiss & Makeup. But I’m the asshole that cleans them out whenever a new shipment comes in. Ok fine. Confession: I kinda didn’t want anyone else to have it. But then I read about how they tried to make Emma’s colour sound all professional and exclusive and requiring a makeup artist to concoct it and, well, you really don’t have to go to all that trouble.
