The Black Beauty Classic That Was: Sam Fine x Fashion Fair

It’s a quick ode to a cosmetic launch that happened, but only a few remember. I was working at EBONY.com when Sam Fine and Fashion Fair debuted the oldie but goodie, Supreme Color Collection. Probably forgotten by many, I’ll never forget the nostalgia that emerges whenever I pick up this beautiful quad and reminisce on Sam Fine developing what was one of one of the biggest Black beauty collaborations. At least, to me.

The packaging was luxurious, and in my opinion, a major milestone and a part of elevating how Black beauty products (or products catered to us) could and should be presented. Sam knew we deserved premium packaging, beautiful marketing, and rich, pigmented colors. Of course, that’s what he delivered.

My favorite makeup artist, Fatimot Isadare, and I decided to play in makeup, with her creating a colorful, classic look with the Tunisian Nights Supreme Color Quadrant.
