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:
Stonewash Shimmer Wash
Mica Shimmer Wash
Rock Shimmer Wash
Ash Shimmer Wash
Hot Stone

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

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.
