Fashion Fair Is Relaunching for a New Generation

Call it a comeback, because that's what it is. Fashion Fair, the cosmetics brand created in 1973 by the late great businesswoman (and glamourpuss) Eunice Johnson, was initially conceived to give Black women actual makeup options that suited their skin tones back in a time when folks said they couldn't find a foundation or blush in their shade — and meant it.  

Johnson, who was also the cofounder of Johnson publishing company, the firm that put out Ebony and Jet magazines, tapped now-legendary Black celebrities like Pat Cleveland and Aretha Franklin as faces of the brand back in its heyday. It was, for a long time, one of the few brands Black women could rely on to have shades to match their rich skin tones. "Their Burgundy Berry — or a similar name — was best for dark-skinned girls like me," Gloria Hobbins, a New Jersey-based travel advisor tells me when I ask her about her experience with the brand in the '70s and '80s. 

We're now living in a post-Fenty Beauty era, where having a foundation shade range that includes the very melanin-rich is very much a pre-requisite if you want to launch a line to much fanfare instead of much vilification. But ask any Black person living in the U.S. in the '70s or '80s and they'll tell you — Fashion Fair was basically it. Until it wasn't.

In 2016, the brand filed for bankruptcy after Ebony and Jet were sold to a private equity firm, according to Vogue. In 2019, businesswomen Cheryl Mayberry McKissack and former Johnson Publishing CEO Desirée Rogers teamed up to purchase Fashion Fair, fresh off their acquisition of another noted brand for the melanin-rich, Black Opal. "[Fashion Fair] is an amazing American iconic brand, and it deserves this rebirth," Rogers tells Allure in a phone interview.

The brand's "rebirth," as McKissack and Rogers call it, is slated to happen September 1 (with just lipsticks) and September 9 (with the rest of the line) online at fashionfair.com and sephora.com with prices ranging from $27 to $37. This launch will start with six pieces, most of which are complexion products. 

So what exactly can you expect? For starters, four different base color products, all in different formulas. Each starts in the medium skin tone range, getting deeper as you go along. "You still have a great range of shades," explains Fashion Fair global makeup ambassador Sam Fine. "[These] ranges lean into more olive and golden shades, as opposed to the red and orange which were of that moment."

After you anchor your face with the brand's peach-tinted FF Fabulous Priming Serum ($37), you can delve into the color offerings like the FF SkinFlex Stick Foundation ($37), boasting 16 shade options, which promises to give you buildable full coverage and a dewy finish. Then, there's the FF Crème to Powder Foundation ($37), a 14-shade offering with an oil-controlling formula and medium coverage. FF Set It Loose Powder ($34) comes in six shades that you can dust on to keep your beat perfectly in place and add a bit of a subtle glow, thanks to the micronized luminizers added to the formula. The FF Iconic Pressed Powder ($37) is indeed a new take on the classic product, coming in 12 shades and created for on-the-go application — just like how my mother and grandmother used it.

Speaking of throwbacks returning to their former glory, Fashion Fair is also bringing back some of its most-beloved lipstick shades, updated and reformulated to satisfy modern proclivities. In the 14-shade selection of FF Iconic Lipsticks ($27), 10 of them are inspired by the brand's classic colors, like Olé Orange and Chocolate Raspberry. The remaining four are brand-new nude shades sure to become favorites in no time. According to the brand, this is the largest selection of nudes it's offered.

Relaunching with a batch of lipstick and base products makes sense if you consider Fashion Fair's history as one of the few brands that created foundations for darker-skinned women when it first came on the scene. "This is not a shade extension. This is not someone vying for our dollar who didn't ask for it before, who we felt separated or disengaged from," says Fine. "This is me as a kid going shopping with my mom and seeing these beautiful Black images and always feeling seen at [the Fashion Fair] makeup counter."

Fashion Fair was a staple at department stores for generations, but this new iteration of the brand is taking into consideration the nature of makeup shopping in this day and age. First off, the brand mentions a renewed focus on creating products with better formulations, as well as the addition of skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, and moisturizing sunflower seed oil. 

As the founders mention, the products were formulated to address skin issues that often affect Black women. For example, its new primer includes, as the brand verbiage notes, "skin-brightening actives" (which the brand confirmed is vitamin C) to combat concerns such as hyperpigmentation.

There's also the fact that department store makeup counters don't have the caché they did in the past. These days, people are flocking to retailers like Sephora, where the new Fashion Fair will be available at the start of the month. Entering this particular space, the hope is, will help the brand become more accessible to modern makeup wearers who are shopping in stores and online — and putting all their findings on the internet for the world to see. 

Plus, according to the brand, it created a list of "do-not-use" ingredients for this line in order to comply with the retailer's clean beauty standards. The brand declined to disclose which ingredients were discontinued. (If you wish to read about Allure's clean beauty standards, you can do so here.)

In a growing market of makeup options for women with deeper complexions, Fashion Fair, though a throwback, has its place. "Regardless whether they remember that it was their mother's favorite brand or not, Fashion Fair fills such a hole in the market," Fine explains.

What makes Fashion Fair special is that it is a legacy brand. I myself have childhood memories of rifling through my mother's makeup bag and carefully opening each soft pink compact to reveal the rich, brown pressed powders I'd seen my mother and grandmother carefully apply with a sponge applicator. 

For many Black people who wear makeup, Fashion Fair ignites those same nostalgic feelings Max Factor mascara or Nars Orgasm blush might for someone outside Black communities in the United States.

The cherry on top of all this? Fashion Fair's relaunching with a brand-new spokesmodel to tie it all together. If Beale Street Could Talk star Kiki Layne will front the brand as the face of its new generation. And what a pleasant face to look at, too. 

You can shop Fashion Fair lipsticks starting September 1 at the Fashion Fair website and  Sephora.com. Scoop up the rest of the collection starting September 9.

For when you want to stay informed

 

TED Radio Hour

This NPR podcast features new guests and mentors from around the world as they explore some of our biggest questions. From digging deep into what informs our ideals of beauty to our relationship with water—it makes sense when you listen—these audio versions of TED Talks are engaging and prompt you to look at everything a little differently. If you want to gain a new perspective while staying up-to-date on issues and ways to solve them in our society, this is the podcast for you.

 

The Daily

Hosted by New York Times journalist Michael Barbaro, each 20-minute episode takes a closer look at news stories and uncovers the truth about what is really happening through longform journalism. Want to know what teachers and students really think about the Delta variant while heading back to school? Curious why Apple is able to search through your files on your cell phone? With a clear mission to educate listeners, the investigative journalism in this podcast is sure to give you all the answers to your questions and address a few you might not have thought of.

 

Today in Focus

From covering the day’s breaking news stories to reporting on the most heartfelt stories of the week, The Guardian’s Today in Focus is for the listeners who want a “deeper understanding of the news.” And let me tell you, each episode leaves me feeling like I’m suddenly an expert on the day’s topic. This podcast is my go-to when I want a news team that’s willing to explore questions and aspects of current events few other podcasts dare to go.

 

For when you want to learn something new

 

Stuff You Should Know

With a name that makes it clear it’s time to put on your thinking cap and learn a thing or two, Stuff You Should Know is hosted by the writers of How Stuff Works and covers literally all the questions you’ve been too embarrassed to ask. I mean, how are you supposed to bring up the logistics of pet psychics on your visit to the vet? Lucky for you, after listening to the episode exploring the people who claim to telepathically communicate with animals, you don’t have to. From quirky episodes to investigations into cultural phenomena, this podcast is great to listen to when I want to impress my friends with some niche knowledge.

 

Sustainababble

If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that we need to pay attention to climate change and do our part for the environment. A mix of comedy with a rundown on how to practice sustainability, Sustainababble is the perfect, approachable podcast to stay informed on what we can do to be the most environmentally friendly in our day-to-day lives. With hosts Ol and Dave breaking down why everything about climate change and how to be sustainable is so confusing—and cracking a few jokes along the way—you’ll feel like you’re learning together.

 

Still Processing

One of the most engaging and downright hilarious podcasts, Still Processing takes a look at pop culture and analyzes the books, music, celebrities, and social constructs we’ve grown used to under a new microscope. From taking a look at the community of music lovers created by Black musicians like Frankie Beverly, to examining how Olivia Rodrigo’s “Driver’s License” is actually very similar to “WAP”—I was surprised too—hosts Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham take the concept of culture and spin it to give it their own fresh take.

 

You’re Wrong About

If you’re into history—or just in need of rectifying all of the biased information you learned in history class—this is the best podcast for setting the facts straight. Two journalist-turned-podcasters investigate and revisit cultural events, such as the O.J. Simpson trials and the Stanford Prison Experiment, to help figure out why these events have been mistold and twisted in the public imagination. Complete with a catchy and eerie Twilight Zone-esque intro, this podcast always prompts me to question how much of what I hear—and see in the news—is accurate.

For when you only have a few minutes

 

Encyclopedia Womannica

Keeping in line with the history theme here, Encyclopedia Womannica takes a stab at answering a question many of us had in our history classes: Where are all the women at? Giving you more than the surface-level story of Betsy Ross we all learned in high school, this podcast takes a deeper look into the lives and notable contributions of women in history in each episode. Though it’s coming decades (and sometimes centuries) later, women who took on roles as scientists, leaders, and musicians get the recognition they deserve. And the best part? You can learn about a new incredible woman in just one five-minute episode.

 

NPR Up First

If you’re looking to start your day with the news, NPR’s Up First is for you. In a digestible 10 minutes, hosts Rachel Martin, Noel King, and Steve Inskeep break down the day’s top three news stories. Every time I listen to this podcast, not only do I walk away feeling more informed, but I also have a better understanding of how international events affect us here in the U.S. as well—all before I’ve finished my morning coffee.

 

This Day in History Class

Chances are, you’ve seen one of those “on this day so many years ago” posts on someone’s feed. Well, with this podcast, you may too join this group, as each episode breaks down important events in history that you may not have learned about in school, **cough cough**, like the Stonewall riots and the Organisation of African Unity, to name a few. In just under 20 minutes, this information-heavy podcast will surely spark your inner history buff.

 

For when you’re in the mood for true crime

 

Casefile True Crime

If a narration of a true crime story to help you pass the time is more of your thing, Casefile is the perfect podcast to throw on in the background or during a workout if you’re in the mood for some bone-chilling stories. With episodes on both solved and unsolved cases, a deep-voiced narrator dives into the investigations and theories behind true crime stories and proves that fact really can be scarier than fiction.

 

Dark History

If you’ve never heard of Bailey Sarian, well, let me enlighten you. Known mostly on YouTube for her Murder, Mystery, and Makeup series, Sarian tells true crime stories, somehow flawlessly mixing the perfect amount of sensitivity with humor. The YouTuber recently launched the Dark History podcast, and listeners are already praising her storytelling in an audio format. If you want to be told true crime stories by someone who also seems down to chat with you over a glass of wine, this is the perfect podcast for you.

 

Unsolved Murders: True Crime Stories

If downright creepy is more your speed, mulling over the evidence with these unsolved cases could be what you’re looking for. Taking on more of a 1950s radio show format, a narrator and ensemble work together to tell the stories of crime scenes, investigations, and the theories behind a cold case. I would definitely advise against listening to this at night—unless you like to be scared—because this podcast will give you the creeps.

For when you need a good girl talk

 

Call Her Daddy

There’s no way you haven’t delved into the world of podcasting without hearing about Father Cooper—as host Alexandra Cooper has dubbed herself—and the slew of impressive guests her show has attracted. From interviews with celebs like Miley Cyrus, Chelsea Handler, and Holly Madison, both Cooper and guests spew pretty much all of the details of their sex lives but also touch on serious topics such as misogny and homophobia. The podcast has definitely evolved over the last year, and while, yes, it is about sex, there’s so much more than that—I even once teared up over an episode I was listening to at the gym. Yes, it earned me a few concerned glances, but give it a listen and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

 

Dyking Out

This show is the perfect mix of comedy, honesty, and a deeper look into queer culture that is never prevalent enough in the world of podcasts. Each show begins with comedian-turned-podcasters Carolyn Bergier and Melody Kamali sharing the “gayest thing” they did over their weekends, and then they delve into meaningful conversations about pop culture, queer news, and just life in general. With a new special guest every week, you’ll wish you could join in on the conversations in this podcast.

 

The Professional Homegirl Podcast

Inspired by her desire to highlight women of color in the realm of small businesses and professional settings, entrepreneur and host Eboné Almon interviews a different guest each week to chat about life and its challenges. With the goal of providing a safe space for women of color, Almon interviews each guest in a way that makes you feel like you’re listening to a story and not an interview. If joining in on a conversation about traditionally taboo topics is for you, don’t skip this podcast.

 

Stuff Mom Never Told You

If you regularly seek out intellectually stimulating conversations with your friends, add this podcast to your listen list—if that’s what you want to call it. In this series, two feminist theory and history lovers take on a topic, like red hair, fan fiction, or even marriage. Throughout each episode, we get a deep dive into society’s modern view of women but in a way that’s less of a lecture and more of an open conversation.

 

For when you want to be inspired

 

Lauren Conrad: Asking for a Friend

The fashion designer and beauty brand owner Lauren Conrad has become a household name—at least, for us here at The Everygirl—and is an expert on all things lifestyle and social media. So who better to help you get that Etsy shop you wanted to start off the ground or help turn your Pinterest into aesthetically pleasing perfection? Though episodes stopped airing in 2019, Conrad’s advice remains timeless. Conrad provides the perfect mix of casual conversation with her own tips and stories on her success, and I walk away from every podcast episode feeling ready to tackle a new project.

 

Coffee With My Ma

In a unique and fresh take on podcasting, host Kaniehtiio Horn interviews her mother, a radical activist, on her escapades and wild stories from earlier in life. And let me tell you, her mom has seen a lot. From her “vacation” to a tension-filled Cuba to the time she just happened to get “stuck” in Europe for a year, this podcast will inspire you to get out of the house and start making your own adventures.

 

Side Hustle Pro

Side Hustle Pro is the first podcast to showcase Black women entrepreneurs, with new guests on every few episodes to discuss how they reached their small business dreams. If that’s not motivational, I don’t know what is. While this podcast is for women who have started their own business, this show is still a great way to support other women and maybe even learn essential skills, including how to move forward with authenticity or how to reinvent yourself.

For when you want to nerd out

 

The Real Weird Sisters

If you’re a Harry Potter fanatic like me (my childhood wouldn’t have been complete without the HP books and movies), then this podcast is perfect for you Muggle-borns and wizard wannabes. For an in-depth look at each character, scene, and the real relationships between those in the wizarding world, the hosts break down each book and movie piece by piece to explore the entire world in which Harry lived. And with in-depth lessons on herbology and character studies of the mysterious Draco Malfoy and the powerhouse that is Molly Wesley, this podcast is my new guilty pleasure.

 

The Bechdel Cast

For all the movie buffs out there, I’ve found the podcast for you. The Bechdel Cast looks at popular movies and TV shows through a feminist lens and discusses the portrayal of women in media and pop culture today. It tackles sexism through clothing and styling of women actors and looks at the morals and themes of movies including Hustlers, Crazy, Stupid Love, and more. Each episode is around the two-hour mark or more, so if you have time to kill and love talking about films, this will be your go-to.

 

Terrible Book Club

I think we’ve all mistakenly picked up a book and, with the never-dying hope that it will get better, finished said book only to realize that it is completely terrible. Whether you’re in the same boat as me or just want to listen to some angry readers rant about books that, really, should never have been published, listen to the Terrible Book Club. In each episode, the hosts pick a book, choosing from the classics, something from the New York Times Bestsellers List, or anything that even just looks particularly terrible, and they report back on how bad the book really was. A hilarious anti-book club, if you will, this podcast uncovers if you really can judge a book by its cover.

 

Women of Marvel

Obsessed with superheroes within the Marvel Universe too? With the Women of Marvel podcast, you’re free to geek out over powerful female heroes and listen to the experiences of the women directors, writers, designers, and crew working to make each Marvel production possible. Not only will you hear the incredible stories of the women behind many of Marvel’s movies and shows, but you’ll also learn how your favorite superheroes turned from comic book characters to stars on the big screen.

Dealing With Adult Acne? You’re Not Alone

My entire life, I’ve considered myself lucky when it comes to my skin. A spat of acne in high school quickly got under control with some mild prescription treatments, and the rest of my years were spent only dealing with a zit popping up here or there—that is, until I met my newest foe: adult acne.

CURRENTLY TRENDING /

so many amazing deals 🛍️

At first, I was in a bit of denial. About a year ago, I started getting a few more clogged pores and stubborn zits than I usually did and chalked it all up to stress (as one does). After a few months and a cluster of breakouts on my forehead that simply wouldn’t go away, I finally admitted to myself that for the first time in over a decade, I was dealing with acne.

I had heard it from my older friends countless times: Around age 25, their skin started to change and act up, and as mine started around 24, I realized that this is what so many of them had been talking about. I booked a trip to my longtime dermatologist, but the solution wasn’t as easy as it was when I was 14. I went on four different prescription combinations and finally have found a routine that has been working for me after 18 months of trying different things—but throughout my journey, one thing has been clear: I’m definitely not alone in experiencing acne as an adult.

How Hormones Can Be To Blame

As we hit the prime years for fertility, our hormones are fluctuating in conjunction with our menstrual cycles,” explained Dr. Fatima Fahs, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Dermy Doc Box. 

Because of hormonal changes, Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Dr. Loretta Skincare, explained that it’s more common for women to experience adult acne than men.

“In my four decades of dermatology practice, I’ve found that adult acne into the 20s and 30s is much more common in women than in men,” Dr. Ciraldo said. “Breakouts on the chest, shoulders, and back, called folliculitis, are more common in adult men than women.”

 

If you’re dealing with acne as an adult, you’re not alone—and it isn’t your fault. 

 

Dr. Fahs emphasized the importance of keeping track of your acne flare-ups and what may be causing them.

“You’ll want to take note of what makes your acne flare. Many women find that their acne is worse the week before their period,” Dr. Fahs said. “If you are experiencing irregular or no periods or even excessive hair growth on the face and chest, you might also want to make an appointment with a gynecologist to be evaluated for an underlying condition that could be contributing to your acne, like PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome).”

Identifying Other Triggers

While hormones can be the culprit of adult acne in women, both Dr. Fahs and Dr. Ciraldo noted that many other factors can be causing your skin to act out.

Dr. Ciraldo explained that diet can play a role, but it’s generally variable and can affect some greatly and others not at all. Some other triggers she recommended keeping an eye out for are:

  • Haircare products (especially if you have chin acne or if you see the breakouts under your chin or on your neck)
  • Stress 
  • Diet triggers, including milk (even skim), sodas, sugary food
  • Hormonal fluxes: If you don’t have a normal menstrual cycle, you should have tests done to rule out PCOS, which can cause adult acne
  • A new medicine or supplement like biotin, which recently got buzz for causing acne, or a change in your contraception 
  • Makeup or skincare 

While all of the above can lead to acne flare-ups, Dr. Ciraldo emphasized how common it is for her to see patients whose acne is being caused by hair care products.

“Almost every day that I see patients, I have a new patient coming in whose adult acne we trace back to a haircare product. I suggest they switch to a 3 percent salicylic shampoo and cut their conditioner half and half with Infusium 23 Leave-In Treatment.”

Prevention and Treatment

When you begin experiencing adult acne, both Dr. Fahs and Dr. Ciraldo emphasized the importance of making an appointment with a dermatologist. From there, start taking notice of your triggers, patterns of flares, and treatments you’ve attempted so you can give your dermatologist as detailed information as possible.

“Even before you see the dermatologist, you should consider what you may have changed that could be the cause of your acne,” Dr. Ciraldo said. “It may be stress from a new job or a relationship, haircare or makeup products, or a change in your diet. If you’re aware of any of these changes, you can try to tweak these and see if your acne improves as you await your dermatologist visit.”

We’ve all heard it a million times, but no matter how much we want to, Dr. Fahs emphasized how important it is to not pick at or pop any pesky zits that might appear, as it increases the risk of scarring and inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

If you’re tempted to pick your acne, Dr. Ciraldo recommended putting a pimple patch on it to help prevent touching it and irritating it further or turning to spot treatments containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and sulfur. 

Both Dr. Fahs and Dr. Ciraldo highlighted the same point: If you’re dealing with acne as an adult, you’re not alone—and it isn’t your fault. 

“Do not ever feel hopeless about acne,” Dr. Ciraldo said. “Acne is a skin disorder. Like most health disorders, acne may be cured. And, especially in the case of adult acne, it often needs long-term treatment to remain acne-free.”

Over-the-Counter Treatments

If you’re unable to get to a dermatologist, there are several dermatologist-approved over-the-counter treatments you can turn to. Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are both readily available, and Differin gel has been known as one of the most tried-and-true over-the-counter options.

No matter which route you choose, consistency is key when it comes to managing acne as well as making sure you aren’t overdoing it with products. You shouldn’t expect results right away, and often, things slightly worsen before they get better. Find what your skin responds well to, cut out the things it doesn’t, and then stick to a routine.

My mom and I agree on most things, but for as long as I can remember, we’ve been at a stalemate regarding one controversial topic: pajamas.

The Best Labor Day Sales to Shop This Weekend

so many amazing deals 🛍️

Since I started dressing myself, I’ve been an avid member of the oversized-shirt-as-pajamas club (much to my mom’s dismay). My reasons are many: needing to consistently locate two pieces of a set, wearing pants to bed, not caring enough to spend money on them—the list goes on. But after finally going to the dark side and investing in a nice pair myself, I’m here to admit that my opinions were far from correct.

After converting to a full-time pajama wearer, my PJs are giving me daily joy that my ratty old T-shirt couldn’t dream of. I look forward to putting them on every single night and feel like a million bucks when I do, which makes me wish I converted a long time ago. No matter who you are or what your sleepwear preferences are, these pajamas are good enough to convert even the biggest pajama naysayer amongst us:
