Lancome Color Fever Gloss in Piha Black

It’s hard not to notice that the hottest Fall trend this season is the vampy black lipstick. It’s possibly the most difficult look to pull off in the Muse’s humblest opinion. Those lucky individuals that can work it are truly something to envy and those who can’t pull it off seek another alternative to this sexy look.

In comes Lancome with it’s new luxe lip set created by Aaron de Mey, Lancome’s new artistic director of makeup. This kit is $48 USD and contains Color Fever Gloss in Piha Black and Color Fever Lipstick in Piha Red.

The idea of mixing black and red may sound twisted but do take a look at the sexy lip look created using both:

Lips like this call for a really corny Vampire dance off!

Here’s the catch. Only 500 sets are available of this posh lip set! Eep! Time to rush to Bloomingdale’s 59th in November! Or call ahead to put your name on the list at (212) 705-2886.

I put my name on the list already! I know I can’t pull off the goth purples and blacks I see cropping up in different collections this season so I’m very tempted to try this out for myself. You have to admit that contrast of all that red topped by a tiny bit of black is super sexy! Color Fever Gloss is one of my favorite glosses from Lancome do to it’s innovative applicator. Lancome is one of the few companies that have adapted the popular Japanese heart shaped applicator to their glosses. This makes for ease of application in a major way. The applicator is large and saturates well with color, one swipe gets full glossy lips in seconds! Loves it! It’s been suggested that you can also use Piha Black on your lids as well as your lips which sounds like an interesting concept. Black definately doesn’t work on my lips but I’m hoping the red will mute that and make it as popping as the promo images however when all else fails maybe I can sport this on my lids for a glossy smoked out look!

Whether or not the Muse can work this remains to be seen but try I will! You’ll see a review sometime in November for the kit!

Want this?

Loving all the black that’s popping up for Fall?

What are some of your must have vampy glosses and lipsticks from this season’s collections?

    I LOVE this look!

    I’m counting down the hours until I can head to buy MAC’s Cult of Cherry!

  • Cosine

    Hey sweet!

    The gloss looks kinda cool… really caught my attention. It may sound a little weird to say so but it looks very “galaxy”. Like all the milky way! LOL

    I’ll want to get the set just for collection sake even if it doesn’t suit me. How often do we see “Milky Way” gloss?

    Really wanna see ur review soon! =D


  • MC

    My former goth side is totally loving the dark shades for this fall. I know I won’t be getting this Lancome set because I usually miss out on extreme limited editions such as this..:(

    Smashbox has that beautiful Sultry black Cherry shade gloss that I am in love with for fall..and OPI’s new fall nail shades has me drooling…

    Once I recover financially from my vacation/con work. I am stocking up fall make up bag. XD

  • the Muse

    hi pao pao!

    LOL! 🙂 indeed but it’s so funky isn’t it?!

    You know you want it!

  • the Muse

    hey dd!

    me too! Love it! So gothy 😉

    Plenty of vamp in Cult of the Cherry 🙂

  • the Muse

    hi cosine!

    How are you? 🙂 The gloss looks lovely doesn’t it!?

    Oh I can totally understand that I agree it has that far out of space quality 🙂

    I agree. I’m the same way. Even if it fails to work at least I have one of 500 lol!

    MWAH 🙂

    Can’t wait till November!

  • the Muse

    hey MC!

    My goth side totally digs this 😉 If you need me to snatch one up for you let me know!

    I didn’t see the smashbox black cherry shade is it part of the wicked collection!?

    OPI I seen and fell in lust! I should take better care of my nails for that reason alone!

    Hehe happy Shopping!

  • fiftycenthead

    I’m on the list already, too. I barely waited ’til I finished writing up the post before dialing!

    We’ll have to have a Fifty-Cent Head vs. Musings of a Muse VAMP OFF when they come in!

  • the Muse

    ahhh awesome :)!

    I just spoke to Erin earlier and told her how awesome it is 😉

    Looks amazing!

    Oh YES! I’d love it!!!!!! Cross post coming on hehehe!

  • Decorative Diva

    Because MAC doesn’t have a black lip gloss coming out, I actually ordered one from Nyx online. I’ll be letting you know what I think of it. I’ve never used Nyx before, but so many people sing their praises. I figure it’ll be nice to layer over lipsticks.

  • the Muse

    hey dd

    I was kinda saddened to see that but I am happy with the cool glosses coming out!

    NYX is sorta hit and miss for me. I never tried the glosses so here is hoping it’s awesome!

  • Beauty Addict

    Hey Izzy, it reminds me of coffee-stained lips. The colour looks kinda off and funny. *Shrugs* Some may find it innovative and interesting though.


  • LithiaBlack

    Oh, my gothy side just made a huge “EEEEP” sound of delight, I so want this set. Have to find out if it arrives to Stockholm.

    I’m really looking forward to the Cult of Cherry Collection too 😀

  • snb-the glamourista

    oooh i want it!! i wonder what it’s lasting power is, or if i’d end up with black ring around the mouth…..

  • the Muse

    hey gracie!

    Aw sorry to hear you’re not liking it. It’s definately difficult to pull off that’s for sure. I think it’s rather interesting but I doubt I can pull it off!

  • the Muse

    hiya LithiaBlack!

    DITTO! 🙂 I dunno if it’ll available in europe but I sure will ask around for you!

    I just reviewed Cult for you guys today!

    awesome line up! Awesome!

  • the Muse

    hi there snb-the glamourista!

    hehe me too can’t wait to get my greedy paws on it!

    Ugh that’d prob be the case for me ll!

    Even if it’s a long wearing I always end up with a strange ring around my mouth 😛


  • sarahPUFFY

    Im SO excited for black lip gloss! I’ve been wanting to rock some darker colours, but in a more demure way, you know? totally digging this.

  • the Muse

    i’m excited about this one to sarah.

    I like the edge of innocence and the dark goth feel totally contrasting and awesome 🙂
    Can’t wait to try!

  • ~*MC*~

    Yep, the Smashbox lipgloss I mentioned is part of the Wicked collection. It's the Sultry color that looks brown in the tube but actually is deep cherry on me. It was one of the last beauty items I bought before I headed off to Otakon this year lol.

    Lemme think about that offer..$48 is a bit steep..but it looks sooo pretty….I'll get back to you lol. XD Thanks love.


  • the Muse

    mc seen it and it’s gorg! I’m bring a review to you guys next week of most of the wicked collection. I nabbed a good deal of it.

    It’s quite a good selection of items. Smashbox disappoints sometimes but when they do a solid collection it’s a rave.

    You’re most welcome!

    Any time at all my dear!
