Looking absolutely gorgeous, Jessica Alba launched Honest Beauty, her highly anticipated new range of products, in NYC on Wednesday night. The actress unveiled her new beauty range, with products made sans parabens, silicone, and other synthetic materials. Of course, she looked stunning at the event, wearing a gorgeous white dress and flawless, glowing makeup.
Alba has been rocking red carpets and other A-list events with her amazing style for as long as I can remember, and she already has a range of products — including sunscreen, diapers, and other personal care and cleaning items — under The Honest Company brand, so it wasn't exactly a surprise when she announced she'd be branching out into the cosmetics realm. Still, I've been excited to see the results of her first makeup effort, and now the range is finally here!
The actress looked stunning at the launch, which took place the night before NYFW kicked off in the city. She wore a long-sleeved midi dress in a pure white shade with a geometric pattern that popped against her bronzed skin, and featured a very classic silhouette. Her bright pink, bubble gum shoes provided such a nice contrast with the white dress. The whole look was super fun, cheery, and perfect for the final days of summer.
Naturally, Alba also wore her own products to the launch. According to her Instagram, Alba's purple berry pout was courtesy of the Playful Kiss Lip Gloss from the range, as were the other products she sported.
Alba is so drop-dead-gorgeous that you'd be crazy not to want to sample her makeup offerings. I'm certainly wondering what the bronzer, highlighter, lipstick, and foundation she's produced can do for me. Oh, and maybe the mascara, too. OK, so everything. I want to try everything from Honest Beauty. Can you blame me?
