Makeup Review, Swatches: Revlon Fall 2012 The Shanghai Collection - Gucci Westman

Revlon‘s Global Artistic Director — and one of my favorite makeup artists — Gucci Westman pulled her inspiration from the crossroads where East meets West, and combined Asian grace with Western attitude while creating The Shanghai Collection for Revlon. I made many double-takes at my local drugstores while looking at Olivia Wilde, Emma Stone, etc., as Westman has transformed their looks on several ad campaigns.

I even picked up a pamphlet about Gucci Westman; I was so intrigued to know who was the MUA behind these new collections and advertisements. There was a picture of Gucci Westman on the pamphlet and then everything made sense to me. I also follow her on Twitter as she does sometimes share photo shoot snippets. I love her “eye” for color — this collection is simply beautiful! I can feel the mysteries of the Orient simply based on her color choices…

“This collection was inspired by the romantic films of China, where women adorn ultra-feminine wardrobes of vibrant high-collared cheongsam dresses with saturated colors,” explains Westman. “I traveled to China and was moved by the art, architecture and effortless beauty of the women. I loved the idea of easily incorporating the elegance and romance of Chinese beauty into a woman’s daily routine.”

  1. I really like it!The colors are beautiful 🙂

  2. My nails are so long that they curl. When I put 2 colors on you can’t see unless I show you. I love the asian theme I really love it. The stencils will be perfect I can put them on without buying little stencils cutting them and try to put it on. What a pain and takes for ever. I think 4 hours is long enough to do my nails. Are they in stores now? Thank you sooooo much.

  3. Thank you for your feedback. It is always wonderful to hear from our readers! Stores roll them out at different times in the month but they were due to be out as of last week.

  4. Wow is really all that I can say about this entire collection! I am a HUGE fan of the bold, intense and sultry are the tones in the 3 lip shades Cherry Blossom being my favorite!

    I really do like the Pop of color in the eye collection..I love to experiment with eye shadow!

    I love this collection..for many reasons..it reminds me of the quiet sensual power of the Geisha, the Fun Laughter of Kabuki Theater and the Overall Grace and Beauty of the Asian culture!

  5. Well said Davia, thank you!I have been wearing Cherry Blossom for the past three days and love it’s pop of color indeed! Thank you again for your feedback. Nicole
