At a NeNe Leakes meet-and-greet at Macy’s Herald Square store Thursday night, ethnic cosmetics line Fashion Fair revealed its collaboration with the musical “Cinderella” on Broadway.
Leakes, who took over the role as the evil stepmother from Sherri Shepherd in the Broadway production on Nov. 25, addressed a crowd of about 100 fans at the meet-and-greet. After sharing a few words about pairing up with Fashion Fair and acknowledging the many talents of her costars, the reality star posed for pictures with fans.
The show reached out to Fashion Fair to create the collection — lipsticks and eye shadows that create three “wicked” high-drama looks and three “nice” pairings. The 14-product collection includes eye shadow shades from black to shimmering beige and lipsticks in deep plum and Bordeaux.
“It was so important and exciting to team up with the Cinderella production,” said Fashion Fair president Amy Hilliard. “Mrs. Eunice Johnson would be very proud.”
Johnson founded Fashion Fair cosmetics in 1973 as a makeup solution for black models in her traveling fashion show (also called Fashion Fair), when they couldn’t find makeup to properly match their skin tones.
The Fashion Fair Cinderella collection will be available at four Macy’s stores in the New York area — Herald Square, Bay Plaza, Cross County and Parkchester — until the end of the year. The show is scheduled to close on Broadway on Jan. 3.
