This season, bright pops of color have their place on eyes, lips
and cheeks, said Vincent of The Makeup Show. For example,
Estée Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Sculpting
Mattes is a collection of three lip-sculpting
metallic finishes infused with luminous, provocative color. Formulas contain hyaluronic
acid and a Moisture Complex. From amped
up nudes to vamped up violets, lips are transformed with impactful bold color in three lip-sculpting, multifaceted matte finishes.
Revlon’s Stay Matte Liquid Lip Color is lightweight and highly pigmented, with 12 hours of
kiss-proof staying power, according to the company. The waterproof and touch-proof formulas
have a velvety finish and come in a variety of
matte shades to complement any skin tone.

Believer, Creator, Romantic, Heroine, Pioneer,
Lover, Dreamer and Loyalist.
Inspired by global trends, Revlon’s Lustrous

sential oils and moisturizers to glide on and stay
on. Revlon promises a look that will be saturated with smooth
and luscious high impact color. The collection features six new
shades for Fall 2017.
Full color in one swipe is what Palladio Beauty promises with its 4
Ever + Ever Intense Lip Paint. Said to provide a long-lasting shine in
a creamy application, the formula includes aloe vera extract and coconut oil to hydrate and moisturize. The paint is available in 12 shades.
Stop chapped lips without sacrificing color. Eve Lom launched
Kiss Mix Color, a lightly tinted lip balm ideal for a subtle splash of
color this summer. Kiss Mix Color is available in three shades of
pink: Demure, Cheeky and Lippy.
For women who love lipstick but not the cakey texture of
a stick, L’Oréal Paris has rolled out Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick.
The formula promises a 24-hour lock-on color that won’t bleed
or wipe off. Also in the matte collection is the L’Oréal Paris
Infallible Paints Matte; this non-bleeding formula ranges from a
beaming hot pink to foil-inspired silver.
Put your best pout forward with Hourglass’ Confession;
this brand recently made headlines when it was acquired by
Unilever as its first prestige color company. The new ultra slim
high intensity lipstick is refillable and designed to be used interchangeably with the entire collection of confession ultra slim
lipstick refills. The lipsticks are said to deliver a saturated, long
lasting color with a satin finish. The Confession collection contains nude, mauve, pink, berry and red shades.

PAT MCGRATH RECEIVES CFDA FOUNDER’S AWARD
• The queen of American fashion, Vogue’s Anna Wintour, proclaimed Pat McGrath “the most influential makeup artist in the world.”
The visionary force behind Pat McGrath Labs as well as P&G global creative design director was also the first makeup artist to receive the CFDA
Founder’s Award at an event in June in New York City.
The Founder’s Award was established in memory of CFDA founder
Eleanor Lambert and is awarded to a person for his or her unique contribution to the world of fashion and/or deserving of industry recognition. Lambert,
who founded the CFDA in 1962, was a pioneer in bringing American fashion
and fashion designers to their present international stature.
“Pat is the first makeup artist to receive a CFDA Fashion Award. By
bestowing upon her the prestigious Founder’s Award in honor of Eleanor
Lambert, the CFDA is putting a spotlight on the behind-the-scenes talent
that is so critical to the creative process,” said Steven Kolb, president
and CEO of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
McGrath’s arrival onto the fashion scene in the 90s began with a fate-
ful introduction to the renowned photographer, Steven Meisel, by super-
model Amber Valletta, who presented this year’s award to McGrath along
with Karen Elson. This introduction would lead to a longstanding personal
and professional relationship
that continues to this day—
Meisel rarely shoots without
McGrath. McGrath’s mas-
tery and incomparable vision
have transformed the beauty
industry, raising the bar to a
level of luxury, quality and art-
istry never before seen. She
pioneered the trend for dewy
skin in the 90s, introduced
bold color into the everyday
makeup palette, and experimented with unconventional materials like
gemstones, feathers, fabric and even gold splinters. The results were
both eclectic and electrifying. She has reimagined the bold eyebrow,
matte skin and endless details that define beauty.
Past recipients of the Founder’s Award have included Donna Karan,
Millard “Mickey” Drexler, Bethann Hardison, Oscar de la Renta, Andrew
Rosen, Hal Rubenstein, Tonne Goodman and more.
