Queen of the World

Does anyone else remember Poppy, the fabulous indie line of makeup? Well, founder Poppy King is back after a far-too-long hiatus with Lipstick Queen, her lovely and carefully edited line of lipsticks, yes, lipsticks only, thank you very much. Available in two formulations for each of the ten colors; Saint shades are uber-light in texture, sheer and moist while Sinner offers opaque shades with no shimmer and no glitter. Available at Barney’s or at www.lipstickqueen.com

Pretty Pretty

The YSL Lip Twins are so…well, Pretty. The chic packaging is just the beginning. Turn the key-like tip and get your choice of satiny lip color or sexy gloss, and just pull the top and out pops a lip brush. Compact, clever, instant classic. Available at www.saks.com

Tool of the Trade

Whether slant or pointy tips are your speed, Mally’s Double Duty Perfect Tweezers have got you covered. The uber sharp pointed end is perfect for strays while the slanted tips are ideal for everyday brow grooming. Accompanied by a sweet little pink snakeskin print case. Available at Henri Bendel or www.QVC.com

Coquettish

Continuing the romantic, muted palette of the Spring 2007 collection, NARS Summer offers three Duo (and one single) Cream Eyeshadows, two lipsticks and a lipgloss in demure shades of nudes, muted metallics and pale pinks. The finished look is one of subtle, natural, girlish loveliness. Available this month at www.narscosmetics.com

Living Beauty

Bobbi Brown’s new book Living Beauty aims to position the makeup guru as a lifestyle expert. Aimed at women over fifty – Brown herself just hit the birthday milestone herself- the book’s chapters run the gamut from nutrition to fitness to plastic surgery (in case you’re wondering, she’s opposed.) A quick read, but full of sound advice…honest!

Available at bookstores nationwide or visit www.bobbibrown.com to purchase.
