Red Velvet Nabs New K-Beauty Endorsement, New CF Drops
South Korean cosmetics brand Etude House has released a new commercial film featuring K-pop group Red Velvet. The members of the female band wore different lipstick colors in the new stylish ad.
The latest advert of Etude House shows each member of Red Velvet in different shades of lip color and matte level finish. The ad, titled MATTE CHIC Lip Lacquer, features dramatic visuals of Wendy, Irene, Seulgi, Joy, and Yeri.
The new Etude House lip color collection has 12 variants to choose from. Some of the items are named after the band members. There is "War Irene Red," "Wendy Brown," and more. The release of Red Velvet new CF coincides with Irene's 26th birthday.
The new Elude House ad with Red Velvet came just a week after the cosmetic company recalled two of its products in some countries in Asia. The product pull was made after it was found that the cosmetics contain an excessive amount of metal antimony. The Etude House products that were recalled are the AC Clean-Up Mild Concealer and Drawing Eyebrow Duo No. 3 Gray Brown.
These are only two of the 13 K-beauty products that were pulled. Contact with a high amount of antimony is toxic. Antimony is a semi-metallic chemical element. Contact with a high amount of antimony for an extended period can irritate the skin, eyes, and lungs.
