billybBEAUTY Paint Brushes.

From one of the most talented, sought-after, innovative makeup artists of our time, Billy B, comes his collection of makeup brushes. He calls his brushes Paint Brushes, which is actually pretty fitting, as we use brushes to paint and sculpt our canvas everyday, don't we?

"Each brush in the collection is designed specifically for its individual function, resulting in the ultimate application. I personally selected a range of high quality blends of both natural and synthetic components for maximum performance and function in mind, providing an easy and ultimate application and blending of product and color to create the most beautiful makeup application. But I didn't stop there. I also paid special attention to the handle, length and weight. The handle is a lightweight, varnished birch that is chic, comfortable, easy to use and store." - Billy B

In one word - beautiful! The brushes are amazing and well-worth every cent. Your makeup can be the best, but if is put on half-heartedly with poor quality brushes and applicators, you will not get the full benefit of the makeup and you know. Once you try professional quality brushes, you will see and know the difference, almost immediately - trust me!

For the professional or regular gal that cannot get enough of her makeup brushes, there is the billybBEAUTY Master PAINT BRUSH Collection. For $259, you get his full line of 13 brushes.

For the regular gal who must-have the essentials, then this collection, which is my favorite, would be for you. It is the The billybBEAUTY Essential PAINT BRUSH Collection. This set has the eight essential brushes needed for everyday use. The set includes the following brushes:
Two - Foundation Brush
Three - Powder/Blush Brush
Four - Contour Brush
Eight - Firm Eyeshadow Brush
Ten - Eyeliner Brush
Eleven - Stiff Angled Brush
Twelve - Soft Angled Brush
and a special lightweight aluminum, retractable lip brush.

The billybBEAUTY Essential PAINT BRUSH Collection sells for $159, and is so worth it all.

You must visit entire billybbeauty site for more about the master and the rest of his collection. Billy - I will be waiting for the makeup, along with many others I am sure.

We can hope for it, can't we?

Calling Calvin Klein Beauty!

I heard about Calvin Klein Beauty re-launching into the cosmetics market back in 2005. I remember clearly that it was supposed to launch in Spring of 2007. Then it was pushed back to Fall, 2007.

As we are embarking on Spring 2008, I am wondering where Calvin Klein Beauty is? Coupled with the fact that one of their new makeup products was entered into the CEW Awards and that the product demonstrator told me that the line debuted on Sephora.com in January, I am more than curious. I cannot find the cosmetics line anywhere. It is not on Sephora.com. The Calvin Klein website still says it is arriving Fall 2007.  Where is it already?

The product I saw really intrigues me. It is called the Electric Edge Liquid Eyeliner Pen. The liner has a unique felt tip applicator that allows the formula to be evenly distributed throughout the tip. The end result is said to be a thin, smear-proof line above the lashes.

I will ask it again, Calvin Klein Beauty, where are you? If anyone has the information or has seen the line up in a store, please do let me know. I am excited, yet frustrated that I cannot find it. Is anyone else excited about this new line, sure to be a hit?

-----------------------

UPDATE It is selling at Sephora.com! Thank you to the few readers and e-mails that I have received today, I found that it is selling as ck Calvin Klein. I don't know how I missed it.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color.

When Bobbi Brown does something right, there is no doubt that she does it right. A perfect example of this are her new Creamy Lip Colors.

With a very moisturizing base, the lipstick is what it says, creamy. Normally you would find a formula like this  in a pot, but this lip color is in stick form. Enriched with Shea Butter and other skin conditioners, this lip color glides on and keeps lips feeling soft and smooth all day.

Creamy Lip Color comes in a full range of 14 shades. My favorites are Bronzed Pink, Crystal Pink, and Nude Pink.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color retails for $22 and is available at your favorite Bobbi Brown counter as well as bobbibrown.com
