Makeup artist, YouTube guru, and Global Creative Director of Lancôme, Lisa Eldridge, is launching a limited-edition trio of red lipsticks.  Featuring a blue red, Velvet Ribbon, a brick red, Velvet Jazz, and an orange red, Velvet Morning (pictured above), the lipsticks will be released  November 19th on-line. The author of NY Times bestselling book, Face Paint -The Story Of Makeup, and jewelry designer (check out her collection of semiprecious earrings and rings) has worked with celebrities ranging from Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman, Rihanna, and Kate Winslet, to Victoria Beckham, Kendall Jenner, Keira Knightley, and Cara Delevingne.  Eldridge consulted with Shiseido and No7, prior to joining Lancôme, and with her expansive collection of tutorials, one wonders why it took her this long to develop her own capsule collection. 

On Wednesday, Eldridge cryptically posted an André Breton quote on her Instagram page, “Objects seen in dreams should be manufactured and put on sale,” with the tag, “Something is coming .”  Speaking earlier in the week with WWD she confessed, “I hadn’t planned to create a lipstick, but I had a dream a few years ago about a lipstick with a velvet fabric bullet. It was on a shoot where I stuck actual red velvet onto a model’s lips and while it was fun, it wasn’t comfortable for the model.” Velvet has clearly been in Eldridge’s consciousness and her lipsticks channel those thoughts; she notes that the formula has a “delicate finishing effect” not found in other lipsticks and the reflective sheen, she assures, closely resembles velvet. 

Lisa Eldridge’s limited-edition lipsticks will retail for 26 pounds ($33.77) apiece or 75 pounds ($97.42) for the trio.

Rimmel has launched its #IWILLNOTBEDELETED film, marking the start of Anti-Bullying Week 2018 and the beginning of parent company’s, Coty’s, ongoing commitment to tackle the prejudice and discrimination that stand in the way of self-expression. The emotive film features a number of young people who have had first hand experience of the negative effects of beauty cyberbullying. They are supported by Rimmel global brand ambassadors, Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne, sharing their own authentic stories of being on the receiving end of beauty cyberbullying.

The #IWILLNOTBEDELETED campaign will see Rimmel partner with the multi award-winning anti-cyberbullying non-profit organisation, The Cybersmile Foundation.  Rimmel will work with Cybersmile to tackle the societal issues that stop people of all ages from feeling unable to fully express themselves on social media due to fear of negative commentary or retribution.

Rimmel has also published a white paper – Beauty Cyberbullying – Expression Repression which highlights the global impact of beauty cyberbullying. The white paper spoke to over 11,000 women aged 16-25 and discovered that beauty cyberbullying is a growing global issue. Some of the facts it discovered include:

  • 1 in 4 women have experienced beauty cyberbullying
  • 46% of women who have experienced cyberbullying have self-harmed either through an eating disorder, substance abuse or physical self-harm
  • 57% of women who have experienced cyberbullying didn’t tell anyone and suffered in silence
  • 54 of women have bullying behaviour on their mind when they’re about to post something online
  • 32% have closed a social media account and 22% have deleted an image due to cyberbullying
  • 115 million images are deleted each year as a result of cyberbullying
