If This Lipstick Were An Outfit...

THE LIPSTICK: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture in 1

THE OUTFIT: Sweater, White + Warren (similar here); skirt, Zara; sunnies, Dolce & Gabbana; shoes, Miu Miu (similar ones that I am OBSESSED with here); necklace, c/o Stella & Dot
Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup; Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bold Gold; Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stretch Lengthening Mascara; M.A.C. Tendertone Lip Balm in Hot 'n' Saucy
Necklace, c/o Stella & Dot; clutch, Kotur. (similar here); ring, unknown (similar here); nails, Sephora by OPI Trend Tips in Floral


The other day I was staring at a tube of lipstick (Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture in 1)--as beauty editors are wont to do--when it occurred to me that the color combination of its sleek gold tube and blood-red bullet would make a pretty spectacular outfit. Inspired, I set out to make it happen. Now this is hardly the first time I've seen a connection between clothes and cosmetics (remember my manicure inspired by a favorite dress?), but here is the latest endeavor: A classic red lipstick, re-imagined as an outfit, thanks to a bright red sweater, a glitzy skirt, and a few golden accessories. What do you think? 

And tell me (because I'm dying to know!), which beauty product would you love to turn into an outfit and how would you style it?
