Julie Hewett Noir Red lipsticks (with swatches)
Julie Hewett created her own line of vintage inspired red lipsticks made with modern ingredients when she could not find red lipsticks to suit her needs on the film Pearl Harbour, which she was the make up artist for. As a film, Pearl Harbour was....long, is probably the kindest way I can put it, but the makeup in it was sublime. This line of red lipsticks is gorgeous; they are comfortable to wear but don't bleed, and fade evenly after very good wear (I can go at least 4 hours without needing a touch up if I'm not eating.)
In the UK, Julie Hewett can be purchased from Makeup Artists Provisions in Shepherd's Bush, London - their telephone number is 020 8740 0808. www.juliehewett.net also ships internationally, but I don't know how much they charge for this service; I've always had a US friend send these over to me.
I like some of the other items from the line that I'll post about separately, and I also plan to post pictures of the Noir lipsticks applied to my lips.
