A self-taught makeup artist, Michelle Phan’s YouTube tutorials have garnered nearly 1 billion views since she first began in 2007 and her channel boasts 4.5 million subscribers.

Hero products of the new line include the Life Palette, featuring refillable eyeshadow, cheek and lip colors, and the Great Cover Up concealer.

"Beauty lovers are increasingly consuming and sharing information digitally, through online communities. We saw the power of these communities and wanted to meet them where they live–online,” says Carol Hamilton, president, L'Oréal Luxe. “Michelle Phan's expertise in makeup, plus her passion for teaching and empowering women has made her a digital phenomenon. She represents exactly what this line is all about–community, empowerment, artistry."
