Paint your lips in Moulin Rouge
Tuesday 25 May 2010
The burlesque trend continues: following the Crazy Horse beauty range, the LVMH-owned Make Up For Ever has teamed up with the Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris for a stage-worthy collection.
The collaboration came about after Make Up For Ever creator Dany Sanz and Moulin Rouge ballet mistress Janet met and agreed to work together to come up with longlasting, sculpting, and striking products that could go from the stage to the street.
The result is a range consisting of the so-called Rouge Artist lipstick in blazing red, the extremely shiny Glossy Full Couleur lipgloss, false eyelashes bordered with a line of glittery red to draw attention to the eyes, and an assortment in Swarovski crystals in white, red, and black - the colors of the Moulin Rouge. All products, which will go on sale from August 15, will retail from €14,70 to €19,60.
As opposed to many other ranges that get 'inspired' by the burlesque trend, Make Up For Ever actually demonstrates professional know-how: the brand is the official make-up provider to the Parisian cabaret and has produced special products, such as the Pan Cake compact powder for the stage or sculpting brushes, which will only be available to professionals.
Shortly after the Moulin Rouge collection launch, in September, the label will release a range of 50 lipsticks, also called Rouge Artist (selling for €18,90 each), ranging from nudes, beiges, and browns to corals, pinks, reds, and purples.
This is not only a nod to the lipstick on the seams of the dancers' dresses - the famous Can Can dance involves high kicking and lifting your skirt up to your face - but also comes amid the trend of 'lipstick wardrobes,' such as the new range by Tom Ford.
