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.”
The collection has your favorite Revlon products including Super Lustrous Lipstick and Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel in NEW shades for this collection. The Shanghai Collection also introduces Limited Edition Cherry Blossom Nail Stencils and a new Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette in Midnight Express to help you stand out this season. Beauty has its eye on the East for Fall 2012.
The Shanghai Collection includes:
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick ($ 7.99) – 3 New shades (all sampled) in Cherry Blossom, Red Lacquer and Pink Pearl
Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel ($5.99) – 4 New shades in Sterling (sampled), 24K (Sampled), Forbidden (sampled) and Orient Express
Limited Edition Revlon Nail Stencils ($4.99) – Cherry Blossom (pictured)
