“The first thing I thought of was that I wanted to do my signature red — my
bordeaux,” explained Scott, who worked with Lancôme’s artistic director for
makeup, Aaron De Mey, on the capsule collection, which includes a red lipstick,
lip gloss and nail polish, among other items.
Scott said she told
Lancôme executives, “I would like to try to interpret a red lipstick that could
be worn from day to night.” Proffering a makeup-stained hand from earlier
demonstrations, she showed how the lipstick can look sheer or dark, depending on
its application. “And when you put the gloss on, it takes on a whole other
life,” said Scott. — WWD
