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.

After two years, Taylor Swift released her first new single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” on Thursday evening.  Promoting the song on Instagram, following days of social media teasers, the singer, 27, took several thinly-veiled jabs at Kanye West (and possibly Katy Perry), deploying targeted lyrics such as “I don’t like your little games … Don’t like your tilted stage” and “The role you made me play of the fool … No, I don’t like you.”
Swift will release her next album, Reputation, on November 10th.  Partnering with Target on two exclusive covers, copies of Reputation will be accompanied by 72-page magazine bundles featuring, photos, ephemera and “personal poetry and photos, artwork by Taylor, handwritten lyrics, exclusive poster.”

Taylor Swift debuted a new ‘do on Saturday evening at Liberty Ross’s birthday bash.  The singer visited celebrity hair stylists Gareth Bromell and Tracey Cunningham for her new cut and color.  Beginning with a more golden, darker tone, Cunningham warmed  up Swift’s summer shade of platinum.  Then Bromell gave her a sassy, layered shape with blunt-cut bangs.
After all, when one breaks up with a beau, what is she to do?  Shake if off, of course!
