Fashion Nova is a top US-based fast-fashion brand with millions of customers from around the world. These days, it’s hard to meet someone who doesn’t know of Fashion Nova or hasn’t heard of the brand. It is the go-to brand for Gen Z shoppers and middle-class customers looking for a place to buy affordable, quality clothes, and other fashion items.
Since its online launch in 2013, Fashion Nova’s growth has skyrocketed. The CEO, Richard Saghian, made the move to go online when he noticed that some people who bought Fashion Nova clothing from the Panorama Mall in Los Angeles were reselling the items at higher prices. The launch was a successful one, as everything sold out over the first weekend.
When Saghian was still running the physical store and doing most of the work on his own, he personally interacted with customers and got to know what they wanted from the fashion industry. As the brand grew and sales boomed, Saghian started to put these things in place.
He started with the women’s clothing line, expanding options beyond strictly clubwear. He then extended to the plus-size market and made fitting clothes for curvy and plus-sized women in various sizes. After finding success with those expansions, in 2018, Saghian decided to start making clothes for men. With over 500 styles for men, they launched the line and started making sales immediately. In September of 2020, they expanded even further with the launch of their Fashion Nova Kids line. But they didn’t stop there.
In October 2020, Fashion Nova released its first makeup line, venturing into the beauty industry. People were so excited to hear that Maven Beauty was launching!
What is Maven Beauty?
Maven Beauty is a pro-makeup line that Fashion Nova has been working on for several years. In 2018, they announced that they were going to be releasing a beauty line, Nova Beauty. This was widely anticipated, but it never arrived.
Fashion Nova spent the whole of 2019 building a team, sourcing for ingredients and materials, testing the technology, and developing these products, making sure that they are of top quality. According to Richard Saghian, the brand is committed to creating high-quality formations in different palettes and shades that everyone can use regardless of skin type or color.
Saghian, in an interview, said that Fashion Nova has always celebrated diversity, body positivity, all forms of beauty, and will continue to do so. It’s at the core of why they developed Maven Beauty.
Fashion Nova is also known for its affordability and Maven Beauty didn’t stray from that.
The collection studio-tested essentials, false lashes, brushes, and other pro-level essentials that people need to create the perfect look for their style.
One of the best qualities of Maven Beauty is that it can be used by everyone. All the products in the collection are 100% vegan friendly and are compatible with all skin types. Beyond that, the shades of the products are designed to meet the needs of a diverse and inclusive customer base.
Products in the Maven Beauty Line
Maven Beauty launched with 7 products. These products all cost between $5 and $19.
1. Basic Beat Eyeshadow Palettes –
These eyeshadow palettes are made using a unique hybrid surface technology that gives your eyes a wet finish and bolder color when you’re done. You can also use this eyeshadow as a highlighter or to make contours and blush on your cheeks. They cost $19.
2. Maven Lipsticks –
Most times, you don’t finish your makeup without giving your lips a luscious look by applying some color. Maven beauty comes with demi-matte lipsticks in five different shades. We like the red velvet color best because of the finished look it gives. With these lipsticks, you don’t need to layer your lips with a feather or bleed when you want to reapply them. They cost $14.
3. Basic Beat Cream Eyeshadow –
This is another eyeshadow that does something different from the one above. This creamy eye shadow is mixed with lavender to give an anti-wrinkle effect and also as a facelift. You can decide to use this eye shadow as a base when doing your makeup or you can wear it on its own if you’re going for a more natural look. It costs $13.
4. Maven Highlighter –
The Maven Highlighter is created using a wet-tech procedure, resulting in a wet gel that you can use on your face and body to give you a flawless look. It costs $5.
5. Maven Waterproof Liquid Liner –
The Maven Waterproof liquid liner contains an eyeliner and a brush applicator. The delivery system of this liner allows you to apply it in a way that nothing is wasted. So, your eyeliner remains fresh after every application. This waterproof liner can also serve as an eye shadow. It costs $14.
6. Maven Pro Artistry Brushes –
You cannot do any makeup without using brushes. The Maven Pro Artistry brushes come in 30 different bristle shapes and sizes, so you can create whatever look you want perfectly. They cost between $6 and $19.
7. Maven Pro Lashes
These lashes are reusable, so you don’t have to get new lashes every time. They cost only $9. Totally worth the price to get long and luscious lashes!
Fashion Nova keeps releasing new products to help people on a budget who still love to look fashionable and trendy. By releasing this beauty line, they’re helping ladies feel more confident in their looks without breaking the bank.
We still expect more items to be added to the Maven Beauty collection soon enough. You can head over to the Fashion Nova website to see what’s currently available and enjoy creating different looks.
