Last summer, we got word that Gucci was set to launch a makeup line in 2014–and we obviously freaked. The brand is one of the few high-end designers missing from the makeup counters of Neiman Marcus and Saks. So after 12 months of not hearing a peep, we kind of forgot about the big news altogether. That is, until now. We FINALLY got more deets on the brand’s launch which is set to hit this September! Mark your calendars, ladies.
Besides an official date, we now also know that the Gucci Cosmetics collection will include makeup for lips, eyes, face and nail polish, along with brushes and skin-prep products. Also, Charlotte Casiraghi will be the face of the collection. Don’t know who this chick is? Neither did we. So we did some digging and found that she starred in past Gucci campaigns, is fifth in line for the throne of Monaco and can call Grace Kelly “grandma.” So yeah, there’s that.
That’s all the info we have for now, but watch this space for any more news and scoop on Gucci’s first-ever makeup collection! We’ll definitely be back with more info once the September launch gets closer.
UPDATE: We just got some more info on the makeup range from WWD. It will include a set of eight natural hair brushes. Also, there will be an impact long-wear eye pencil that defines the lash line and a triangular nail polish brush for more precise application. Prices will range from $29 for a nail lacquer to $65 for an eye shadow quad. The skin prep line will go for between $49 and $69.
The packaging will also look familiar. The art deco-inspired bottles come in black and gold with interlocking GG logos. Gucci Cosmetics will be sold at gucci.com, Gucci stores and top department stores. Did you just get more excited for September? Because we did!
