Hermès Is Launching Makeup and Skincare
Hermès is planning to bring its luxury touch to two new categories in 2020: skincare and makeup.
According to a report from Business of Fashion, the collection will be manufactured in France and Italy and will use plastic-free packaging. Though Hermès is not totally new to the beauty world (its line of fragrances–including Twilly d’Hermès, Terre d’Hermès, and the newly released Un Jardin Sur La Lagune—sold $355 million in 2018) its only real skincare product currently available is a body balm that can also be used on the face and hands.
There are no further details on what products to expect yet, but we imagine Hermès will follow the example of other prestige brands like Chanel and Dior and offer a full range of cleansers, moisturizers, creams, and more.
As for the makeup? Hermès sent models down its fall 2019 runway wearing deep smokey eyes, so perhaps there’s an eyeshadow palette coming?
One thing we can be sure of is the line will come at premium prices—a small candle from the brand is $186, perfumes range around $102 to $139, and body products range from $50 to $70.
On the bright side, now you’ll be able to own your own bit of Hermès without dropping the big bucks on a Birkin.
