Birth of Burberry cosmetics

27 Jul

Your fav trench coat makers and one of the top knocked-off brands is coming out with a new cosmetics line. Their palates are light, natural, and classic, with an emphasis on nude shades. The packaging is stellar, with their signature pattern ingrained on the make-up itself.  The line has just debuted in Nordstrom’s, but will branch out into other high-end department stores later next year. Lip pencils run at $24, foundation at $59. Which is a lot.

Chief creative officer of Burberry, Christopher Bailey, says of the launch:

It all started because I felt that, at shows and the shoots, the whole [Burberry] attitude is epitomised through the shoes, the bags, the clothes, the accessories, but then the face was the one thing I really struggled with. When we were doing make-up, I felt like we weren’t able to get the right attitude. It was either caked-on make-up or then just the wrong colours, the wrong tones, the wrong spirit for make-up. I wanted it to be this kind of effortless elegance.”

Effortless elegance sounds good to me. I’m excited to check these products out ASAP.
