It was the February launch of MAC Cosmetics' Viva Glam Gaga 2 inspired by Lady Gaga that really got our attention. According to NPD, MAC has been the No. 1 selling lipstick this year, followed by Lancome's L'Absolu Rouge, Clinique's Long Lasting Soft Shine Lipstick, Lauder's Pure Color Lipstick, and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine.
So when it comes to makeup this season, there are two different looks, Grant said. One is sheer foundation and nude or coral lips. This goes best with a khaki summer suit. Beyonce wears this well in the beginning of her new "Run the World (Girls)" video.

Lips show their colors
"The consumer just wants to exhale a bit," said Karen Grant, vice president and senior global industry analyst at the NPD Group. "Coming out of the recession, it seems consumers' thirst for color and play was being reawakened."
