Miuccia Prada could make clodhoppers look cool and boxy shapes seem sexy. She even recast avocado green, long related to kitchen appliances from the ‘70s, as a desirable color.
Now the Italian designer has brought her glamorous brand of “ugly chic” to Prada Beauty, the home’s recent color cosmetics and treatment collection.
On Friday night, the brand celebrated its recent launch with a sublime cocktail party for tons of at Williamsburg hotspot Skylight at The Refinery. Revelers sipped champagne and cocktails contained in the domed penthouse on the waterfront, and took photos of the glittering Recent York skyline.
Through the development process, global creative makeup artist Lynsey Alexander met with Miuccia, explored the archives of hundreds of materials and patterns and pushed the labs to ever-better formulations. She also teamed with global creative e-makeup artist Ines Alpha, who works with 3D software and augmented reality.
Prada Makeup consists of just three refillable products in silver and gold metallic packaging, together with brushes and a blender.
The fan favorite is Prada Reveal skin optimizing foundation, which has an incredibly high 4.6-star average online. Available in 33 shades, it has a soft matte finish and buildable medium coverage that wears as much as 24 hours. “Gives that clean, natural, and glowy vibe,” raved one reviewer. “Totally in love with it.”
There are two sorts of zero-shine lipstick available in 36 shades total – Prada Monochrome Hyper Matte and Prada Monochrome Soft Matte – plus Prada Balm, a lip smoother and moisturizer.
The Prada Dimensions eye palettes are where things get loud. As a substitute of a quartet of predictable neutrals, the brand grouped metallic shimmers and earth tones with runway shades like electric purple and parrot green. “The colours are so vibrant and pigmented, and so they mix like a dream,” wrote one reviewer who enjoyed fidgeting with the shades.
As for Prada Augmented treatment products, there are 4 high-tech options: The Cream, The Serum, The Essence and The Cleanser & Makeup Remover. All are enhanced with a rare-plant-derived Adapto.gn Smart Technology, said to reinforce the skin’s ability to adapt to its environment.
We’re just waiting for the avocado eyeshadow.
