As a makeup artist, I find one of the most disappointing and frustrating things is trying to find makeup which compliments the FULL range of tones of dark skin. Back in the 1980s and 90s I used to get quite a bit of Fashion Fair makeup. I used to love their lipsticks, and I still use my beloved Christmas set that I got a long time ago which has metallic unique shades of lip color. Fashion Fair used to have some of the best makeup choices for dark skin, and although I have medium toned skin much of time time, I could use a good amount of products from the Fashion Fair line. It used to be that the Fashion Fair line had a pretty decent range of products and the quality was good, but the price was not overly high either. Gifts with Purchase were amazing and I really loved it. In recent years, however, the line has changed so drastically that I have not purchased a thing from it in a long time. The products are limited to very orange and red tones, and a few darker ones, but anyone with gold tones or very blue based dark skin tones (think very dark chocolate) have no choices there. The quality went down too. No longer did the makeup seem to address the needs of dark skinned women. It is chalky, colors are boring, and the lipstick quality makes my lips peel badly. Some day I am going to develop a makeup line that truly addresses the needs of the wide spectrum of color in dark skin tones that does not turn orange, red, or ghostly under bright lights. Until then, however, Fashion Fair makeup just isn't making the grade quality and color choice wise. It is too bad, because Fashion Fair had some of my very favorite makeup in the past.
