The Most Popular Lipstick Around the World
London’s Heathrow airport is more than just an international travel hub, it’s also a major shopping destination, boasting an impressive directory that ranges from high fashion labels like Burberry, Hermès and Gucci, to luxury beauty boutiques such as Chanel and MAC. And with upwards of 200,000 people passing through the terminals each day, Heathrow has a pretty good idea of what’s trending with its worldly shoppers.
What do women love? Lipstick. The affordable beauty luxury has become the signature for many a celebrity and is a mood-booster for women everywhere, not to mention an effective cover for those not-so-put-together outfits on days you can’t even.
In its first-ever Lipstick Colours of the Year Report, Heathrow pulled together data from its booming beauty sales to discover the favorite shades of stylish women around the world. To no one’s surprise, New Yorkers opted for a classic bright red—the mark of a modern urban professional woman. The London look is decidedly softer with warm caramel nudes winning out with the Kate Moss/Cara Delevingne/Alexa Chung crowd. Paris is all about la vie en rose, and Parisian women are all about les lèvres roses. A dusky rose hue is perfectly suited to the French girl’s effortless beauty philosophy.
