LISA ELDRIDGE LAUNCHES TRIO OF RED LIPSTICKS

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

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.

VICTORIA BECKHAM X REEBOK!

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017
Designer and beauty icon, Victoria Beckham, is teaming up with athletic giant, Reebok, for an exclusive Reebok x Victoria Beckham collection.  Dressed head-to-toe in athleisure, Beckham posted pictures of her first day of work with the brand, in front of its new Boston headquarters.  In a prepared statement she said, “I am incredibly excited to embark on this partnership built on shared values. I have always championed instilling confidence in women and Reebok is a brand that has been at the forefront of this same message for decades,” adding, “To have the opportunity to challenge the traditional notions of fitness wear within a fashion context is something I have always wanted to do.”  In contrast to her Posh Spice, stiletto-wearing persona of the late 1990’s, Beckham admits that sportswear has become an important part of her wardrobe and daily life.  The Reebok x Victoria Beckham collection will be targeted towards “strong, real women.”

 

VICTORIA BEKCHAM’S BEAUTY SERIES (VOL. 3)

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

On Tuesday, Victoria Beckham released a third video in her Beauty Series, promoting her cosmetics collaboration with Estée Lauder, VBxEstéeLauder.  Captioned, “Don’t Be Afraid of Pink, Ladies,” Beckham shares her take on three pink beauty products with the limited-edition Crème Blush in Blonde Mink, Lip Pencil in Victoria, and Matte Lipstick in Burnished Rose.  The takeaway:  applying the crème blush on the top of the cheeks, end of the nose, and center of the chin will give a “sun kissed feel about things” — without the sun, of course!  Beckham’s first two videos, launched the previous week, garnered more than twenty million views in one week, according to Estée Lauder.
