唇上之歌 |An Ode to the Lips 不可忽視的唇部保養

TRANSLATION | Eugenia Yang

飽滿雙唇,是魅力的張揚,性感的延伸,鮮豔大紅色彩散發著淺淺笑意,載著臉部表情、情緒的豐富情懷,隱喻著無限的想像空間,色澤調配,更代表著豐沛的生命能量而無限。

Full and plumped lips are an expression of charm, an extension of sensuality. With a light smile, the bright red color becomes an embodiment of our emotions, implying infinite imagination. The color palette also represents the abundance of vitality and energy.

創造柔軟滑嫩
當我們把一切的美麗注意力都置於臉部保養時,卻忽視了在臉上精緻脆弱的唇部滋養。嘴唇幾乎沒有汗腺與皮脂腺分泌油脂,加上缺乏足夠的角質層幫助抵禦乾燥氣候、紫外線等外界刺激,故容易產生缺水、乾裂、脫皮等狀況,相較於其它部位的肌膚更顯脆弱,需要悉心呵護照料。與疫情共存的情況下,我們有多久沒有把口罩拿下來,或是在拿下口罩的同時忽略了平時沒有保養到的唇部,因而驚慌失措地表示,等我擦一下口紅!或許精緻的魅力就是來源於平時生活的小習慣,即便和口罩說再見的日子遙遙無期,我們也應該重視美麗的雙唇。唇部與肌膚一樣都需要細心愛護。去角質保養成了唇部保養的第一大步驟,清除老廢角質並提升雙唇滋潤度,定期使用唇膜來保持光滑柔嫩。另外,平時也要隨身攜帶護唇膏,或是在擦唇彩之前先用護唇膏打底。美國西岸的淨透系彩妝品牌 ILIA,全新推出 ILIA 純淨修護潤唇膠,添加草綠鹽角草萃取、仙人掌油等多種天然純淨成分,幫助敏感且脆弱的唇部肌膚保濕鎖水,素唇時使用給予雙唇滿滿的潤澤修護;塗抹唇彩前作為唇部保濕打底;或是塗抹唇彩後直接疊搽,亦不會影響唇彩既有色彩表現,輕鬆創造豐盈水感彈嫩唇。

蜜蜂一直是嬌蘭的創作核心,也為經典皇家蜂王乳修護系列的初衷,而這項大自然的寶藏,現在昇華為化妝品配方的關鍵,啟發嬌蘭創造出嬌蘭KISSKISS法式之吻 波光蜜漾護唇膏。KISSKISS法式之吻波光水潤唇膏添加了蜂蜜、蜂膠以及蜂蠟,蜂蜜有著滋養功效伴隨著蜂膠的平滑雙唇與豐盈效果再添入蜂蠟的優異的持久保濕功效,創造出如花瓣般輕滑過嘴唇的柔軟滑嫩質地。KISSKISS法式之吻波光蜜漾護唇膏共設計了六種晶亮的蜜糖色款,帶來燦爛耀眼、難以抗拒而充滿活力的笑容,彷彿大自然的禮讚,令人忍不住想親吻一下。

一抹紅唇
一抹紅唇成為巴黎女人的必需品,一定會擦上紅色唇膏,並且用指腹上色。法國「It Girl」Jeanne Damas 就曾經說過自己非常在意自己的唇色,不一定要上底妝,但一定要有著美麗的唇彩,豐厚的嘴唇配上紅潤色澤,達到微噘的慵懶性感。這種彷彿頂著凌亂的頭髮,剛下床隨意擦了紅色唇膏就出門的樣子,是法國女人的指標,也成為想達到完美唇部模樣的一種風格。

1966年,YSL先生以大膽突破的剪裁設計,發表第一套以「LE SMOKING」為名的煙管褲裝,解放了禁錮在裙裝與男權主義下的女人,而此次YSL就以經典煙管褲為靈感打造奢華緞面絨霧唇膏,其中以煙管褲年份為名的#1966,更是以YSL先生心中的性感香氣代表OPIUM鴉片香水為靈感,所調和出的自由罌粟紅,讓紅唇展現無限光芒,在夜晚彷彿揭開神秘性感與為愛瘋狂的誘惑力,炙熱且沸騰。最後還有 Gucci Beauty 推出全新傾色雲霧唇釉,熱愛霧面唇釉那絲柔霧感的棉花糖感受回來了,並呈現出由日落晚霞的美景所激發出的一系列豐富色調,玫瑰木色、粉橘色,紅色和紫紅色,將天空中的繽紛色彩取下至囊中。此外,只要以中指指腹沾取唇釉輕拍於兩頰上,就可以將唇彩完美融合於臉頰肌膚,呈現出柔嫩自然如天空般絢麗的好氣色。

Creating Softness 
As we focus our attention on skincare, we often forget about the lips. Unable to sweat and secrete oils, the lips are more vulnerable to external aggressions, making it prone to dehydration, cracking and peeling than other parts of the body. Now that we are trying to coexist with the pandemic, how many times have we forgotten to take care of our lips, panicked when we took our masks off and said “Wait, let me put some lipstick on!” Perhaps charm comes from taking care of the little details in life. Even though our “mask-off” days seem indefinite, we should pay as much attention to our lips as to our skin. The first step to a proper lip care routine starts with exfoliation. After eliminating the dead skin cells, the lips will be left with enhanced hydration that can be maintained through the constant use of lip masks. It is also important to constantly apply lip balms, especially before putting on any lipstick. Originated from the West Coast, clean beauty brand ILIA introduces the brand new Lip Wrap Reviving Balm that offers hydration through all-natural ingredients such as salicornia and prickly pear oil. Wrapping them in a hug of hydration, the balm instantly leaves the lips smoother and more plump with a soft sheen. Apply it before putting on makeup to make sure the lips are properly moisturized and to create a natural look that comes with a healthy glow. 

Bees have always been a major inspiration for Guerlain and the Abeiile Royale collection is the best example. Now, this treasure offered by mother nature is even used as a component in makeup formulas. Infused with honey, propolis and beeswax, the new KissKiss Bee Glow is a tinted lip balm that celebrates the power of the bee. The restorative nourishment of the honey combined with the propolis’s plumping effect and the beeswax’s hydration, an incredibly melting texture is created to mimic the sensation of petals softly brushing the lips. KissKiss Bee Glow is available in six floral shades for a radiant, irresistible and vibrant smile, one that celebrates the beauty of nature, get ready to be kissed!  

The Signature Red Lips 
The iconic bright red shade has become a necessity to create the Parisian look. Known as the French “It Girl,” Jeanne Damas once said she cares very much about her lip color. While she doesn’t necessarily need makeup, with a beautiful shade of lipstick, she can achieve an effortless sexy style with a slight pout. Fully committed to sustainability, La bouche rouge uses serum-infused formulas that are fully vegan without animal products or plastic powders. These clean formulas are even offered in refillable, recyclable cases, setting the standards for Blue Beauty and making La bouche rouge the first French environmentally responsible luxury makeup brand. Meanwhile, inheriting the classic charm of the signature collection, the new Dior Addict lipstick continues to innovate under creative and image director Peter Philips’s leadership. The new iteration is offered in three different couture cases—Pink Cannage, Indigo Denim, Metallic Silver—offering your lipstick its very own fashionable closet. 

Back in 1966, Monsieur Yves Saint-Laurent introduced the famous Le Smoking suit to the world, breaking gender barriers with its forefront design. Paying tribute to the brand icon, YSL launches the Slim Velvet Radical collection that bears the signature silhouette. Among all the shades, the #1966 Rogue Libre is emblematic of Monsieur Saint-Laurent’s favorite opium perfume, bringing the mysterious, seductive feminine energy to a full bloom with the sultry color. Lastly, Gucci Beauty’s latest creation, Rouge à Lèvres Liquide Mat, offers a transformative cream-to-powder texture that is soft, weightless like marshmallow. Drawing inspiration from the beautiful sunset scenery, the lipstick comes in a wide range of colors—rosewood, pink orange, red, velvet and more. Meanwhile, the lipstick can even be used as blushes, creating a joyful, natural glow, leaving the cheeks refreshed and ready for the day.
