If you've always adored Georgina Chapman's frilly creations, you'll be glad to hear that she and the rest of the crew at Marchesa are ready to invade your makeup kit. The brand is collaborating with high-end cosmetics company Le Métier de Beauté to create a line of purse-sized palettes, highlighters, and glosses. It's not for the faint of wallet — the least expensive item in the line is $38 — but we're curious to see what shades from the Fall 2010 line get carried over into the makeup, since we adored the ice blue and pink-gray dresses from the show. Will you be interested in checking this line out, or is it too rich for your taste?
For Matt Titus and Tamsen Fadal, love is all in a day's work. The married couple offers relationship advice on TV, through their books, and through their Dating Boot Camp. They say that we send romantic signals — or not-so-romantic ones — through our personal style. Read on for their opinions on what your hair and makeup choices might be saying this Valentine's Day.
On a first date, do you recommend lip gloss or lipstick — or neither?
We definitely recommend lipstick, especially Le Metier de Beaute's Colour Core Moisture Stain Lipstick in shades Castello, Paris, and Cannes. Men are drawn to a woman’s mouth, not only because this is where their fantasies start, but hopefully they will also be listening to what the woman has to say. Ever since Angelina Jolie came on the scene, lips have received the lip service they deserve. It sends the signals that you are a true woman, proud of your femininity and confident, especially when a woman wears bright, vibrant colors like red.

Big surprise, the black-lipped runway trend didn't exactly take off for Fall. Can't say I'm shocked, particularly because, really, everybody looks healthier with a little color. Still, it can't hurt to try a trend, right?
Judging by the way GiggleSugar shrieked and hid her eyes upon seeing my glossy coal lips, maybe it can. I had Le Métier de Beauté's Black Magic gloss on; it's rich, dense, pigmented and quite luxurious. But I don't think that vinyl-style lips are for me. What do you think?
