When Retail and Cosmetics Collide: Anthropologie’s Albeit Lipstick Line

A gal can never have too many lipsticks. Which is why I’m beyond thrilled that Anthropologie  — one of my favorite retail chains for all things boho chic — has launched its very own line of them, called Albeit.

There are six shades total, ranging from fiery red to berry rose. Each color is infused with lip-soothing argan oil and vitamin E, and lives in a shiny gold, art deco inspired case. The packaging is true to the retailer’s faux vintage flair, and reminds me of the makeup I used to play with in my grandmother’s cosmetics case.

My current favorite color is Peony, a medium pink, because it’s light, bright, and perfect for daytime. I also love Vermillion, which is a cool, retro crimson — very Great Gatsby glam and perfect for festive evenings out.

So the next time you’re shopping for a shabby chic throw or a yellow-and-brown buckled hobo, check out Anthro’s Albeit line. It’s retro-glam lipstick at its best.
