Are you ready to rock? I hope so, because Fashion house Rock & Republic unveils its first ever cosmetics collection this week. The enormous 116-item luxury release includes makeup for the face, cheeks and lips, as well as a line of tools. While most of the items are priced up in the Chanel range, some of them, like the $225 Accentuate Bronzer compact studded with Swarovski crystals shown above, even exceed it.
I haven’t seen the line in person yet, but the sleek, silver packaging and cold, minimalist promo pics don’t do a lot for my soul. Sure, I get that it’s supposed to be exclusive and luxurious, but is this the right time to be releasing a $225 bronzer?
Let me know what you think.
Accentuate Bronzing and Highlighting Powder for Face and Cheeks, $225
Trickery Tinted Illuminator for Face, $48
Extremist Mascara, $28
Contrived Pressed Blush, $40
Saturate Eye Colour, $24
Luxe lip Gloss, $26
Imitate Mousse Blush, $28
I gotta say … at these prices, the textures had better be amazing. I’ll invest $26 in a Chanel Glossimer (hey, it’s Chanel!), but there aren’t many other brands that can get away with charging prices like these.
Are you familiar with Rock & Republic? What do you expect from their new makeup line?
