Revlon to launch Flesh makeup at Ulta

MUA Kevin James Bennett posted this to Twitter:

On Instagram, he adds:

In addition to foundation sticks, Flesh will include highlighters, lipstick, and blush — all created to complement a wide range of skin tones.
Flesh will be available online at Ulta Beauty beginning June 24th, and will be on store shelves in July.

Comments:

  • Will Flesh have staying power?  I’m thinking in particular about the stunning failure of Vital Radiance, a line that Revlon created for women over 50.
  • In the 1990s, Revlon had a line targeted at African-American women: I couldn’t find the name of the line (likewise, I couldn’t find the name of the line for which 1980s teen pop star Tiffany was a model).
  • I’m of two minds when it comes to Linda Wells.
    • Con: As EIC of Allure, she ostensibly approved a hatchet job on Paula Begoun. Wow – talk about duplicity.  The reporter ingratiated herself with Paula.
    • Pro: Allure was apolitical when she was EIC.

The Ordinary may be leaving Sephora for Ulta!

Early this year, I posted that Sephora was stocking The Ordinary.

Exciting news!  The insanely inexpensive skin care line The Ordinary is now available at sephora.com.  I hate using the term “disruptor,” as it has become an hackneyed term, but here it…

Allure reports that it appears that The Ordinary is jumping to Ulta. It may be leaving Sephora for Ulta and European retailer Douglas. According to Instagram, it appears that Deciem has some payment issues with Sephora.

Stay Klossy! Estée Lauder names Karlie Kloss as its new brand ambassador

Estée Lauder named Karlie Kloss as its new brand ambassador.  Karlie’s already had a gig with L’Oréal.

According to WWD, Karlie’s production company will produce content for her and Estée Lauder’s social channels; in addition, the brand will support her Kode with Klossy summer camp, in which teenage girls learn to code.

I’m obsessed with Karlie Kloss.  She’s from my hometown of Webster Groves, MO, so I take vicarious pleasure in seeing her in magazines and larger-than-life visuals.  Check out my Stay Klossy board on Pinterest: 3329 pins and counting!

Byrdie staff names the best #lipstick brands, ever

I enjoy receiving E-newsletters from Byrdie. As I use neutral eyeshadows, I express myself through lipstick, so I was very interested to read what Byrdie staff had to say.

Byrdie names the best lipstick brands, ever.

Byrdie names the best lipstick brands, ever.

I like to sample lipsticks from various brands, so I can’t name a favorite brand. I do however like Burts Bees Satin Lipstick (9.00 USD).  It performs as well as lipsticks 2-3 times its price.

These are the best lipstick brands we’ve ever tried. Read all about them here.
