Hermès Is Launching A Makeup Range For The First Time Ever

We’ve no doubt it will be as coveted as the Birkin bag

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / January 20 2020

In news sure to delight fashion lovers around the globe, luxury French fashion brand Hermès has announced the launch of a makeup range for the first time in the brand’s 183-year history. 

The first instalment in the range to drop will be a 24 shades-strong lipstick collection with an additional three colours to launch each season. The chic packaging, designed by Hermès’ creative director of jewellery and shoes Pierre Hardy, is a minimalist’s dream and features a refillable metal case.

“We wanted to do refillable so we could use more luxurious materials that had their own value,” Pierre told WSJ Magazine

“The idea is a form that’s both simple and playful enough to allow it to be done and redone ad infinitum. It’s rare for an artistic director to think about packaging over a long period of time and not just a one-off.” 

In an ode to Hermès’ coveted accessories, the lipstick will be available in two finishes: A matte inspired by the texture of fine-grained suede, and a satin with a glow like the smooth leather of the Hermès Kelly bag.

But, that’s not all – whispers in the beauty industry have it that an Hermès skin care range will also soon be launched.

Yes please. For the first time in its 183 year history @hermes is in the makeup business with the launch of Rouge Hermès. The range of lipsticks inspired from an archive of 75,000 silk swatches and 900 leather shades. The packaging is plastic free made from the same metals used for its handbag hardware and refillable. Hermès plans to launch a new cosmetics category every 6 months for the near future. . . #hermeslipstick #beautylaunch #plasticfree #refillable #beautybusiness #beautymatter #lipstick
