Two Editors With Different Skin Tones Try Linda Wells's New Flesh Makeup Line

When Team Byrdie got word of Revlon's first prestige line, Flesh, created by Linda Wells, Allure's former editor in chief and current chief creative officer at Revlon, we were intrigued. It's a makeup collection of foundation, highlighters, lipsticks, and more, meant to enhance your skin's natural beauty. More importantly, it has an impressive shade range of 40 options that were thoughtfully formulated by Wells to truly match all skin tones (including undertones). When you hear the word flesh, what do you think of? It's not a word that encompasses one-shade-fits all. Alternatively, Wells is aiming to redefine the rather limiting interpretation of the word with the inclusivity of her products. "So this is the idea of flesh color being every color of skin—the color of your skin," Wells told Allure. "We want to change that idea by changing the whole color assortment of Flesh."

With that being said, here's what happened when two Byrdie editors with vastly different skin tones tried these products for the first time.
