Perfect Pairs: Matte Lipsticks + Cool Sunnies Polly Blitzer
Some people pair wine and cheese. Others set up single friends. At Beauty Blitz, we play matchmaker with beauty products. (Remember Klaudia's sandal-polish combos?) I decided to team up my new Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks with fierce sunglasses. Step away from your ho-hum aviators and lip balm. It's time to ratchet up the chutzpah and elevate your summer style.
Violet + Skyscape Polly Blitzer
Vamp was not my hue. But Urban Decay's 2.0 works. When blotted, the color you get is wine stain without a hint of moody bitch. Delicate silver frames and gradient sky lenses lighten the look.

Grape + Ruby Polly Blitzer
Sally Jesse's frames called. I hung up on them. Enter our generation's red eyewear. I love the playfulness of both colors. The transparence of that red reminds me of cherry Jell-O. And the lipstick looks like every grape candy from my childhood, from Laffy Taffy to Now and Laters.

Framboise Sorbet + Lapis Sprinkles Polly Blitzer
You're one swipe of pink away from a good day. This shade transmits joy. These chic Derek Lams won't steal your thunder. But don't you just love the confetti-like design?
