Westman Atelier Lip Suede Deep Red

An update for my American followers Westman Atelier fans. Westman Atelier’s Lip Suede compact has landed; a beautiful lacquered clamshell filled with stripes of peptide-rich and marula oil-infused lip colour. It’s priced at $85, €91 or £78 and is available on the Westman Atelier website here. There’s a brush to come at the end of the month.

UPDATE: It’s now arrived in Europe – at Net-a-Porter HERE* or Niche Beauty HERE*. Net-a-Porter is also selling this ‘Shanghai Edition Box duo of the Lip Suede compact with the Eye Love You mascara* HERE.

I know from my stats that you love Gucci Westman’s other products, so I’m expecting these to be a hit. Original story here. Gucci’s red lip masterclass – here – is excellent too. (more…)

Westman’s signature look is healthy skin with a touch of natural-looking colour – the classic less-is-more look, if you will. (more…)

Gucci Westman’s capsule beauty line, Westman Atelier has landed and the FT has the lowdown on it (sub req). Make-up artist Westman says, “I believe there’s space in the market for a luxury beauty brand that speaks to wellness and integrity. We almost exclusively just use clean, plant-derived ingredients, but everything is also really . . . chic.”
