LOS ANGELES, Feb. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- about-face the multidimensional makeup brand by Ashley Frangipane, known professionally as Halsey, drops its second collection, dubbed Anti-VDay. The limited edition range of its Matte franchise features new shades of Paint-It Matte Lip Color, a flexible, long-wear liquid lip with a powerful pigment load and Matte Fix Lip Pencil, a glide-on matte liner to define lips formulated with Vitamins C, E Complex and Hyaluronic Filling Spheres to keep lips soft and smooth. Anti-VDay consists of a range of kiss-proof colors that are unapologetically bold and made for every face. Continuing the promise of performance and play, they define, fill and blend before setting with a soft, velvet finish.
Anti-VDay was designed to celebrate the ideology of self-love and inspire unconditional self-acceptance. It encourages defining our own constructs for romance and self-expression in all its forms. "The Anti-VDay collection is a perfect representation of our brand identity for about-face," said Halsey, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of about-face. "It's the permission to ignore all the rules and do whatever you want without waiting for that 'special someone'. It's about taking the power back and doing things for yourself."
Anti-VDay includes 5 Paint-It Matte Lip Colors [retail $22.00]. The 4 coordinating Matte Fix Lip Pencils [retail $17.00], include Ashley's favorite, Little Little. Built for creativity and confidence, Anti-VDay encourages everyone to become whoever they want for Valentine's Day and everyday. The palette is a perfect mix of classic muted tones and rich evocative shades from a matte mauve and vivid pink fuschia to out-there signature statements like a bold black lip- each with a fresh peppermint scent. The Anti-VDay limited-release is available for sale exclusively on www.aboutface.com.
