After a meticulous older woman finished testing every eye shadow at Bloomingdale's in Soho, I finally found room at the Chanel counter to scope out the lip choices. After explaining that I wanted something that felt silky, I was directed to the Rouge Double Intensité collection. On one end of the tube was the tourmaline-colored gloss, and on the other side was clear polish meant to add a little extra shine and lock in color. The bright pink would be a fun change from my daytime, bare-faced look, but the two-sided tube was too much fuss—and too sticky—for the beach. 504 Broadway, nr. Broome St.; 212-729-5900.
