Spring Beauty Collabs Star Supermodels
Just like the collab-crazy world of fashion design, the beauty industry is out to prove that two heads are definitely better than one. And what better heads than those of famous supermodels?
Kate Moss and Rimmel London are fªting their decade-long relationship with a set of seven lipsticks that all bear her signature (in scarlet, of course). What has Kate learned from ten years as a celeb spokesmodel? That lipstick doesn’t always last. Her solution? A long wearing, true-to-color lipstick that doesn’t fade after a few drinks. And with her rep as a party girl, she’s the perfect test
subject for lipstick longevity!
Her spin on Rimmel’s Lasting Finish formula adds black diamond particles for shine and light reflection. And while the formula is long lasting, it won’t dry out your pout. Kate’s a fan of shade 001, a rich scarlet, but all the hues — which range from a sexy nude to a vampy plus — seem perfect for any supermodel-in-training. And at about $5 each, you can afford to slick a different one on at every spring soiree you attend.
The Kate Moss collection for Rimmel London is available now at drugstores, mass retailers and specialty retailers like Ulta and ulta.com.
For her first foray outside the world of lip products, Poppy King (of Lipstick Queen fame) turned to Kate Spade. Previously, she worked with the preppy brand for their debut beauty prod, Supercalifragilipstick, so it was only natural that she’d branch out under their polka-dot umbrella. Working with creative director Deborah Lloyd and her collaboration with Australian artist Florence Broadhurst (You read that right, this is a collaboration within a collaboration!), she used the technicolor hues as a starting point for a collection of polish.
I have long been waiting for the right reason to turn my eye from lipstick to nail polish and Deborah gave it to me,” said King.
If you’re already a fan of Josie Maran’s cult-favorite 100% Pure Argan Oil (a multi-tasking hair, face, nail and body moisturizer), you’ll be evangelical about it now. Maran has teamed with a bevvy of her supermodel besties for the Josie Maran Model Citizen collection. The eco-entrepreneur has given models Petra Nemcova and Angela Lindvall free reign over label designs (Maran has her own label, too) for the oil and giving 10% of the purchase price to each models’ charity of choice.
Living in a sustainable, earth-friendly way that benefits the planet has always been an essential part of beauty for me, said Maran. Petra and Angela are also so dedicated and passionate about the causes they support, and I wanted to share our enthusiasm with the world. We want to encourage everyone to join us in becoming model citizens, and the limited-edition Argan Oils are a great place to start.
Angela Lindvall has chosen to work with Healthy Child Healthy World, which protects children from toxic substances through corporate responsibility and educating young ones on healthy lifestyle choices.
Petra Nemcova’s working with the Happy Hearts Fund, an organization she started after she survived the 2004 tsunami in Thailand. The charity works with children after natural disasters, and since its inception Happy Hearts has built 56 schools in nine countries after disasters like the Peruvian earthquake and Hurricane Katrina.
If you choose to snag Josie’s bottle, you’ll be supporting a cause she’s been spearheading since her brand’s establishment: Women for Women International. The charity allows women in developing nations to become more self sufficient, through direct aid, job training, education and small business mentoring. Since 1993, the charity has helped over 250,000 men and women in 130 countries.
The entire collection is available at Sephora stores and Sephora.com for $48 each.
