Kiss the radiance of the night into a new day.

Can you feel the electric energy in the air? While New Year celebrations are in less than 24 hours away, it all still feels like a dream — are we dreaming while awake? The new limited edition three-piece Rouge Hermès Autumn-Winter 2021 collection is inspired by the ambiance of this state of mind.

Leave it to Hermès to do orange well: Orange Brûlé is a smoldering orange inspired by a harvest moon. The second shade is a dark rosewood shaded with purple, Rose Tamisé, the diaphanous color of an evening mist. For a striking pop of color, Rose Magenta is a cool, dense pink.

All three lippies are matte and long-lasting with a second-skin, velvety and powdery effect, even under a mask. Skincare ingredients as well as pigments are both in high concentration so a single swipe delivers maximum impact.

Each lipstick bullet is a beauty object in its own right designed by Pierre Hardy. They are refillable, but the lipstick refills themselves are not offered for the limited-edition colors. I’ve taken to switching up the past season bullets with my balm.

Let each color contrast your festive, sparkly look, or make it a one-swipe accent, should you choose to go lounge by midnight. Go for that kiss and leave a mark of love on your loved ones’ cheeks as you welcome 2022. Happy New Year!


In the Philippines, Hermès Beauty is exclusively in Rustan’s The Beauty Source in Makati, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, and Cebu.
