PS Kiss at Nordstrom October 1st

Exclusively at Nordstrom- Peter Som’s P.S. Kiss for Lancôme

--Nordstrom Announces Fall’s Most Fashionable Lip Color Will Be Available October 1 --

Come October 1st, the wait is over for the third Lancôme Pout-a-Porter lipstick. This time around, fashion fanatics can head to Nordstrom to get their hands on P.S. Kiss, a beautiful burgundy shade created by Lancôme artistic director Gucci Westman and celebrated designer Peter Som for his Fall 2007 Fashion Show.

Nordstrom National Beauty Director Debbi Hartley Triesch can not wait to showcase the shade, saying, “Straight off the runway and right into Nordstrom- we are so excited to be launching the Pout-a-Porter lipstick this season with Lancôme and Peter Som. P.S Kiss is the perfect combination of a bright red and a dark burgundy lipstick, making it a very wearable shade for all skin tones and perfect for this season. It’s the essential must-have and a great compliment to all the rich, luxurious fall fashions.”

A limited number of lipsticks have been created- and given the sell-out success of the first two Pout-a-Porter collaborations with Benhaz Sarafpour and Proenza Schouler, beauty junkies should drop everything and head to the nearest Nordstrom counter, or log on to, before the Peter Som P.S. Kiss lipstick, which will retail for $24, is long gone (or, up on eBay for 5 times the price.)

While many times, recreating the runway beauty trends seen on the models during fashion week can be impossible- striking the right combination of the different lipsticks, glosses and stains that the artists mix to create the perfect hue is not an easy task. But in the case of P.S. Kiss, Nordstrom shoppers can get the perfect runway result every time, since each and every model in the Peter Som show- donned pouts painted with P.S. Kiss.

About P.S. Kiss:
The collaboration began a month before New York Fashion Week in January, at Peter’s design studio. Gucci and Peter poured over his inspiration board, as Gucci began mixing pigments together on the spot. “My fall collection was all about rich textures and deep saturated colors – P.S. Kiss is the perfect bold stroke to go with the clothes, but it is still elegant and easy,” says Peter. On the day of the show, Gucci and her team painted P.S. Kiss onto the lips of Coco Rocha, Chanel Iman, Jessica Stam and the other top models walking in Peter’s show. “I think the color we came up with is reflective of his clothes—modern and sophisticated, and very pretty,” says Gucci.
