If you’ve watched any major red-carpet event recently (or scrolled through celebrity IG), it’s likely you’ve seen dozens of examples of celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle’s work—Blake Lively and Mariah Carey are both clients. Now you can have his magic hands, too: Kristofer Buckle and QVC teamed up to drop a brand-new cosmetics collection that has us really, really excited, although we haven’t tried it yet, TBH. This isn’t his first entry into the beauty arena—Buckle launched a small line at Costco in 2015—which we interviewed him about in 2014. At the time, he told Allure that “most women want to look the best that they can in a natural way, even the painted divas that I do.” And I feel like he’s kept that Ethos with his new exclusive-to-QVC line, dubbed the Kristofer Buckle Collection.
Perhaps the hero item that’s arisen (or the one I’m most interested in playing with) from the collaboration between Kristofer Buckle and QVC is the $42, scalp-covering makeup—available in in four Blonde, Brunette, Black, and Salt & Pepper—that’s meant to amp up thinning hairlines, even them out, or conceal widened parts. Before launching the Full Disclosure palette, Buckle actually used eyeshadow for similar results, according to Refinery29, but this pomade-and-powder duo is far more effective. Other products I’m dying to try? The liquid eyeliner, which comes with what seems to be basically a Tide-to-Go pen for smudges and mess-ups—great for someone like me, who could use a lot of work in the cat-eye game department. (And it comes with mascara, too. Could I be witnessing the rise of the eye kit?)
The rest of the line includes a foundation stick, a supersoft, golden highlighter, satin-matte lipsticks, a setting spray, and a brow sculptor that has both pomade and two different shades of powder. Prices range between $32 and $42, pricey but we’d bargain worth it, considering Buckle’s storied career and insanely long celebrity clientele roster. It all drops at midnight on January 26, available exclusively, of course, at QVC. Since we haven’t actually been able to play with the products yet, stay tuned—we’ll update this post with swatches and reviews as soon as we get our hands on it. And hey, if you get your hands on it first, tweet us @Allure_magazine with your photos and reviews and we’ll add to this post. Because swatches never lie. For now, enjoy photos of the complete collection below.
