pink in the afternoon

Hand me my purse, will you, darling? A girl can’t read that sort of thing without her lipstick.

-Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I have found it, mes chéries. The elusively seductive shade that Audrey Hepburn was wearing in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Ever since I saw her apply it in the famous cab scene, I knew I had to track a dupe down. The one I found is called “Pink in the Afternoon” by Revlon, and I am already in love… what do you think?

breakfast at tiffany’s

It was a warm evening, nearly summer, and she wore a slim cool black dress, black sandals, a pearl choker. For all her chic thinness, she had an almost breakfast-cereal air of health, a soap and lemon cleanness, a rough pink darkening in the cheeks.
