What do you get when you mix extreme lipstick devotion with lots of glitter, a little bit of humor, and a dash of rock ‘n’ roll attitude? The Alcone x Breakups to Makeup Lipstick Lovers Bag, our sparkling collaboration with the indie brand founded by makeup artist Angelique Velez.
Breakups to Makeup is known for creating stylish and fun accessories emblazoned with quirky messages of empowerment that champion self-expression and an intense love of makeup. This is certainly true of our Alcone exclusive bag with words inspired by our longtime friend, NYC performance artist and global fashion muse Kembra Pfahler.
Kembra is never without her signature red pout perfectly intact thanks to her lovable (and relatable) beauty secret. When we shared this with Angelique, she said, “It’s so true! If I have to choose, my lipstick is going to win every time!” She also heartily agreed that this is one secret that needed to be let out of the bag, or rather onto one in this case, and the Lipstick Lovers Bag was born.
We are incredibly excited to have collaborated on such a fun project with Angelique and her brand. Not just because she’s part of our artist community and the entrepreneur of a small business just like ours, but also because she totally gets our quirky sense of humor and shares our obsession for all things lipstick.
Now, this all happened before face masks became part of our daily lives. But if truth be told, not even that can stop us from wearing our favorite shade. And if you’ve ever sacrificed the fleeting pleasure of the tastebuds or gone to extreme lengths to protect your own expertly applied makeup, then this dazzling bag is for you! Use it to carry your favorite things–lipstick, eyeliner, palettes, brushes, even your phone–with style.
If you prefer your glitter straight up, or you’re shopping for the perfect gift for the makeup lover in your life, there’s the Alcone x Breakups to Makeup Glitter Lovers Bag (below) and the Sparkling Bag Set which includes one of each bag in a special value set. Available only at Alcone Company.
