Ultima ll’s “The Nakeds” is noted as one of the most groundbreaking color collections in cosmetics history, due to its inclusion of a full range of skin tones and the shades that naturally complement them. Designed by Kevyn Aucoin in the 80’s, it’s also been credited with influencing many of the makeup lines that followed in the 90’s and who expanded further on this color concept.
The Nakeds- Sliver was a promotional item given as a gift with purchase and is only the size of a credit card. It holds a small amount of four shades from the collection:
- Lipchrome #4
- Cheek Color #5
- Eyecolor #3
- Eyecolor #5
The Sliver also has a sponge tip applicator tucked neatly into a slot in the card and a mirror for on-the-go touch ups. I found this adorable gem tucked away in my mother’s vanity and you can imagine how my heart fluttered upon seeing it. Still untouched and unused, it waited ever so patiently for me to find it, take it away and make it part of my treasured archives.
