Apologies for the irrelevant images. This seems to happen when I don’t post a picture of my own on Quora. WordPress.com doesn’t allow embeds from Quora. I had to share the answer on Quora via Twitter.
Lisa Eldridge is a British makeup artist who had served as creative director for Lancôme. As you can see from the photo below, she’s her own best model.

There’s Velvet Morning, a Berocca orange-red that’ll wake you up in every sense, Velvet Jazz, a brick red, and Velvet Ribbon, a filmstarry blue-red.
The lipsticks cost £26 (around USD 33.43) each. The three lipstick set (including velvet bag) costs £75.00(around USD 96.43). Pre-orders will start shipping on November 22.

One frequent criticism of BB/CC/DD creams is that they come in too few shades. For foundation, I switch between It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ and Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick. I was pleased to learn that It Cosmetics expanded its shade range for Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+. The six shades are: Fair, Light, Medium, Medium Dark, Dark, and Deep.
While it’s not the 30+ skin tones that we’ve gotten accustomed to, it’s better than the limited selection we had before.
Limited time offer: Ultamate Rewards members get $10 off It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ (normal retail price $38) through Saturday, November 10! Code needed.

MUA Kevin James Bennett posted this to Twitter:
Revlon has a new prestige brand in the works – Flesh
It will launch in late June, and features 40 shades of foundation, in stick packaging.
Linda Wells, the creator of Allure magazine who is now the creative director at Revlon, developed the new brand.… https://t.co/LO8QWIDFCV pic.twitter.com/blFWFcMQ8w

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.
- 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.
