Welcome to another edition of beauty brands that make me say where have you been all my life? Today's post will serve as a brief introduction to one of my newest obsessions, the awesome offerings from Julie Hewett-Los Angeles.
The beauty brainchild of one of Hollywood's brightest makeup artists, Julie Hewett Los Angeles is a line founded and brought to life by Julie's need for a modern, vivid range red lipsticks on the set of one of her movies (Pearl Harbor, if you must know). Taking her inspiration from black and white films and old world 1940's French glamour, Julie launched the Noir Collection with the philosophy that great makeup starts from the lips up. Believing that every woman should have her own signature shade of red, Julie's line offers up nine variations. What better way to start our explorations into her brand than by taking a look at a couple of shades that this amazing makeup line make?
Have I ever told you I have a huge girl crush on Scarlett Johanssen? Not only does she manage to look flawless each and every single time she steps out, but she also manages to do so with a classy sophistication that so many modern day starlets lack. Now imagine my joy when I found out that Julie has modeled a shade of lipstick after her? Yes, I was elated.
Part of the Icons of Beauty collection, Scarlett is a cool fuchsia red pink with a strong blue pearl. Both classic and bold, Scarlett herself couldn't think of a better shade to share a name with. The creamy matte texture wears forever like a dream, and does not dry my lips out in the least. Bonus points for an ingredient list that boasts healing camellia oil and rose bud essence.
One of the signature reds that launched the line, Femme Noir is a classically cool blue-based red. It is ideal for medium to cool complexions, though I feel that all can find it absolutely essential for channeling your inner vixen. As with Scarlett, this shade is both creamy and long wearing,
