Ever since the Grammys, I've been searching high and low to determine what that gorgeous coral/poppy/peachy shade was that Adele wore in her comeback performance. Usually, my inbox is filled with the details of who wore what before they've even stepped in front of the camera. But for some reason, this lip color remains elusive.
Chad, one of the lead makeup stylists/creators/color geniuses of Three Custom Color, was up for the challenge of trying to match Adele's performance lip color, and agreed to give it a go. Since there weren't that many great photos of her actual color, I sent him the video and a still, along with what I liked about her color. Since everyone sees color differently, I wanted to make sure that what I loved about the lip came across in the Three Custom Version.
Here are my initial thoughts about the color itself.
What I think is so pretty about this color is that it is a light peach with a kiss of poppy, but it isn't a color that is so light or bright it's overwhelming on her face. She has a crazy full face of makeup and yet it's complementary, which is so hard to do with anything but a very light, almost nude color. I would think it is probably a cream as opposed to something matte or glossy, with a medium amount of shine. It definitely has a pink quality to it, but not in an overwhelming way.
I have one set of this custom lip color to give away to a lucky reader. But before I can do that, I need your help. This color needs a name! We can't just call it Adele (too easy!) or name it after any of her songs (pesky copyrights!). So Chad and I are hoping you can help us name this shade. Adele is so inspiring for so many reasons. For starters, there is her amazing voice, her comeback and songs full of honest emotion. I love Adele for being a gorgeous non-stick figure role model for all of us stylish women over size 10. And I would be lying if I didn't adore the fact that she fell for a guy who was clearly not worthy. We've all been there, haven't we? Can you imagine if you had to admit that you had your heart broken by a guy named Slinky to the entire world? I love her and everything she stands for, but I still am at a loss as to what to name this lipstick!
