Few makeup artists have inspired as devoted a following as Kevyn Aucoin, whose adherents included the likes of Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tina Turner and Christy Turlington.
Although Aucoin sadly passed away in 2002, his legacy lives on in his eponymous cosmetics collection, whose latest creation—the Nail Lacquer in Blood Roses—is premiering exclusively at Barneys New York. The evocatively named hue (Aucoin’s favorite) is universally flattering: a deep, dark, plummy red with timeless appeal. As Danny Griffin, vice president of product development at Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, puts it, “It was perfect in the 1930s, it was perfect in the 1960s, and it’s perfect today.”
Housed in a sleek limited-edition bottle, the nail polish gives depth and drama to any look and captures the timeless, classic essence of Kevyn Aucoin perfectly. Even better, the state-of-the-art formula strengthens and moisturizes nails while delivering high shine and chip-resistant color. This combination of style and substance has garnered praise from Style.com, Beauty Blitz and more. Be sure to get your hands on a bottle in time for Valentine’s Day!
