Found: Target

While perusing tar-jay earlier today, I noticed a new line of mostly bath & body products (the somewhat limited collection included lip gloss, as well as body wash, scrub, butter, shimmer lotion and bubble bath) with kitchy, retro packaging reminiscent of the benefit line, and catchy product names similar to philosphy -- a given seeing as Marcia Kilgore also founded that brand 11 years ago. Her newest release Soap &Glory, which previously had only available at upscale outlets such as Barneys Co-Op stateside, and legendary Harvey Nichols in the U.K., pushes the envelope with punny names like The Righteous Butter, Clean on Me and Sexy Mother Pucker -- a plumping lip gloss. It will be interesting to see if the brand expands, or if this is a market that's been tapped out.

Brand Report Fall 2007: Bobbi Brown


Always the sign of a true makeup connoisseur, Bobbi Brown's (the consmetics maven, not the crack head) sleek logo -- often scoped on best-sellers like the Long Wear Gel Eyeliner , Foundation Stick and seasonal Limited Editions -- is the epitome of fine cosmetics excellence. With just-right shades that exude true elegance, the fall palette, Stonewashed Nudes, is all about subtle sexiness with cool, smoky eyes, neautral lips and just a hint of sultry shimmer left over from summer.
In the Stonewashed Nudes Palette, you’ll find the following eye shadows in a combination of flat and shimmer shades:
Navajo
Stonewash Shimmer Wash
Mica Shimmer Wash
Rock Shimmer Wash
Ash Shimmer Wash
Espresso
Hot Stone


And the new Lip Colors in this collection, neutral tones to complement your cool, smoky eyes:

Hot Cocoa
Tulle Brown
Rich Cocoa
Brownie Pink
Cocoa Berry



There’s also two new Shimmer Lip Gloss shades (exclusive and limited edition, of course) in Stonewashed Nude and Stonewashed Mauve and a new Pot Rouge in Stonewashed Pink.

Welcome, welcome!

Welcome to Beauty Buzzed! If your beauty collection reaches far beyond the limits of your bathroom, you're probably a beauty junkie. Beauty addiction rears itself in so many forms--hence, the list:

You Know You're Addicted to Beauty If::
  1. Sephora is bookmarked in your web browser
  2. You can't walk by a Bath & Body Works without sniffing at least 10 lotions, and testing every anti-bacterial gel, foam and cream ever invented
  3. You might die without chapstick/lip balm/lip gloss
  4. You carry at least 4 beauty items in your purse at all times
  5. If you leave the house without applying mascara, you feel naked and incomplete
  6. You can smell and identify perfume/cologne from at least 10 feet away, and you know that Thierry Mugler Angel and Aqua di Gio are, hands down, the most identifiable scents on the planet
  7. Your hand/inner arm is permanently stained with pigment
  8. You want to become a professional makeup artist just to have access to the MAC pro products, and if you don't, you aren't shy about buying half-used colors from last season off of ebay.
  9. You receive lotion, makeup, and perfume, etc. on your birthday, Christmas, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Hannukah, Kwaanza, Ramadan and even Canadian Thanksgiving (October 8)
  10. You hate how the dust in palettes cross-contaminates their contents, but they're just so pretty you buy them anyway--especially Limited Editions!
