How Eva Chen Convinced Us to Try Neon Green Lip Balm


Maybelline Baby Lips

"The purple's my favorite. It looks really intense, but it goes on really, really sheer with just a touch of color. It's a great balm."

Printed Nike Air Max Sneakers

"I follow a store called Premium Laces on Instagram (@premiumlacesny), and they get the best Nike Air Maxes in there. I want every pair they post, especially the printed ones."


Tiffany Bone Cuff

"This bracelet has been on my wish list for what feels like a century. The gold version is a little aspirational for me, so maybe instead I could buy two of the silver ones and wear one on each wrist."


American Eagle Cutoffs

"I need another pair of these for fall. September in New York is wonderful because it's still warm enough to wear cutoffs with something cozy up top, like a sweatshirt from Zara Man, which is where I buy all my sweatshirts."


Gianvito Rossi Pointy Toe Pump

"Gianvito Rossi is a relatively new designer who I just recently discovered. His shoes are so comfortable—I call them 10-hour shoes because you can wear them all day without your feet going numb. Really."

Butter London mascaras

"Butter London makes some of my favorite nail polish, so I'm excited they're expanding their product range. Like these mascaras: you won't need eyeshadow when you wear them because they're just so bright and cool."

Catbird Ear Cuffs

"I got a piercing on my upper ear last year. I love it, but I wish I'd known about Catbird's clip-on style ear cuffs sooner so I wouldn't have had to deal with the one year healing process."

Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag

"I need to curb my Proenza Schouler PS1 addiction, but this blue ombré tweed was so good I couldn't resist."


Essie "Twin Sweater Set" Nail Polish

"Obviously people who follow me on Twitter and Instagram know I love crazy nails, but I've kind of been returning to classic reds and neutrals lately. It feels very avant garde from what I usually do."


Jane Carr Snake Scarves

"I'm constantly freezing on flights or in the office when the A/C is blasting, so I always have scarves to drape over me. And I'll definitely be buying these snakeskin ones for my flights to Milan and Paris."

Digital Fashion Writer

Eva Chen's one of the only people who could get me to try lip balm that's tinted the color of green Play-Doh. But she can, not only because she's our editor-in-chief but also because (as her Twitter and Instagram followers know) she's got the kind of style that's fun, but not like, "I just spent $72 at Ricky's and I'm going to a theme party" fun.

She'll wear a high-top sneaker with a pretty Tibi skirt or style a pair of shredded-like-Metallica's-playing jeans with immaculate Jimmy Choo stilettos. She always picks the smartest fun things and wears them in the most clever ways, so I trust her to lead me down the road of technicolor lip balm (which, as it turns out, is both subtle and awesome) and basically anything else she thinks is cool—like these things, which are topping Eva's wish list for fall.
