Vintage-Inspired Industry Newcomer, Velvet 59, Release game-changing New Cosmetics
Named one of Oprah’s favorite things in January 2015, Velvet 59 gets ready to hit hard with their revolutionary vegan and cruelty-free new products.
(July 2015) – No stranger to the cosmetics industry, 22-year old Paris Manning, raised by makeup industry veterans, has branched out on her own with the launch of Velvet 59—her visionary approach to marrying modern ideals with vintage glamour. Originally from Brighton, England, Paris now resides in upstate New York where she has tirelessly researched and refined a revolutionary approach to maximizing long-wear and pigment while minimizing her footprint on the planet.
Inspired by both her upbringing and her love for animals, Paris is committed to making all products from Velvet 59 Vegan, Paraben-Free, Cruelty-Free and Gluten Free. New products launching on Monday, July 20 include:
Contour Is A Girl’s Best Friend: Whether it’s a square, round or heart-shaped face, contouring is a time-honored Hollywood tradition from Marilyn to Kim. This very special cream-to-powder kit makes it a cinch to blend, and then sets as a matte powder so that your contour stays on all day long. $45.00 USD
Matte To The Max: This liquid lipstick is formulated with Amazonian powerhouse Sacha Inchi oil, one of nature’s most perfect skin foods: a 100% extra virgin seed oil which is native to the Amazon Rainforest and has been a part of Amazonian life for many generations, translating to ongoing support for rural Amazonian communities. Both a powerful skin-treatment and a potent anti-aging ingredient, this product goes on liquid opaque and softens to a rich matte long-wear lipstick, without ever drying out the lips. $20.00 USD
My Fair Lashes Mascara: Want show-stopping lashes? This fast drying, flake and smudge-proof formula creates long-lasting length with a brand new innovative wand. The flat side allows the tip to get those tiniest, hardest-to-reach lashes without smudging, and this cruelty- and paraben-free unique formula works with the mascara wand to provide incredible lash definition and length. $23.00 USD
The Exotic Lotus Palette: A gorgeous array of eight intensely pigmented eye shadows recalling the pinks and mauves from shimmering lushness of Asia. As with all products from Velvet 59, this palette is formulated with both glitter and mica that are certified to not have originated from child labor mines. $39.00 USD
The Malibu Sunset Collection: This set of four ultra-creamy lipsticks evokes the waves at dusk in Malibu, which reflect some of the most beautiful pinks on earth. These lipsticks are formulated with extra pigment to present maximum color with minimum application. $18.00 USD
Velvet 59’s new products can be found on shelves and virtual aisles across the country starting July 20, 2015. For additional information, visit www.velvet59.com.
