So. What do you know what the brand Fashion Fair? And if you tell me that you’ve never heard of the brand, I’m going to freak out. Because…really? Actually, no. I’ll kind of understand because there aren’t that many higher end cosmetic lines developed with the brown woman in mind. I was sent these recently launched products and I couldn’t wait to feature them!
I vividly remember Fashion Fair’s iconic pink packaging from back in the day. While their counters were never bustling out of control like some of the other brands, Fashion Fair continued to provide brown women with products fit for us. A few years ago, the cosmetic line went through some rebranding and they are BACK…and better than ever.
Their range of eye shadows ($14/ea) are slim but they seem to cover the basics with neutrals, greys and blacks and other shades that can produce a mean smokey eye. I love everything about the shade Livid. This darkened lavender has a satin finish that applies beautifully to the skin.
Sweet, right? I’m going to crank out a look using this shadow!
In the mascara department, Fashion Fair has Bold Lash Mascara ($16.50) and I’ll do a separate review on that. My first impressions are positive though as the wand looks like it can do some major lash lifting. A good week’s worth of testing will confirm this.
Good Illuminating Powders are hard to come by. And while she arrived to me smashed into pieces, I am going to find a way to repair her again and use the heck out of this Sun Soleil powder. It looks to be quite fitting for my complexion and reasonably priced at $29.
Something I didn’t expect to see from them were skincare products. They have a ton for both face and body. Their Moisturizing Body Kits ($39) make for great gifts and with the combination of a body butter and body oil, it really is a nice value for a higher end brand. Plus, I found the fragrances to be mild, yet obvious without being overwhelming.
Hellooooo. Where have I been? Why didn’t I know more about Fashion Fair’s awesomeness? Why didn’t y’all tell me? They are certainly on my radar now and I plan to feature a lot more of their products in the future.
Any Fashion Fair fans in the house? What’s your favorite product by them?
