Metro Mama & Metro Baby

How neat is this?

Your daughter’s or niece’s first beauty salon now introduces her first makeup collection. Introducing So Cozy Makeup by Cozy’s Cuts for Kids are in shopper friendly locales in Manhattan. But, it gets better: If you and she – and her doll, Samantha in tow – just came from Walt Disney’s “The Lion King” or “Beauty & the Beast” and feel the need for a makeover, just swing by Cozy Cuts for Kids. Make sure you have an appointment, however, I hear the dolls get rather cranky if they have to wait for a last-minute squeeze ins. Walk-ins are accommodated, though appointments are strongly encouraged.

So Cozy introduces pretty little punches of color for your little princess. The new collection features a range of lip glosses in two, Vitamin E-enriched formulas plus a just-for-kids nail color line created exclusively for So Cozy by the legendary polish queen, ESSIE. All formulas are safe and non-toxic and all shades are age appropriate so your little ones can play dress up without looking all grown up.

Why go to a big chain mega cuts enterprise when your little ladybug can go to a salon outfitted just for her? And, who says getting a haircut can’t be fun? After her own kids squirmed and complained during their trips to the salon, Cozy Friedman decided to open a place where kids would actually enjoy going to for a haircut. That’s just what Cozy’s Cuts for Kids is. Part hair salon and part toy boutique, a trip to Cozy’s is one that kids actually look forward to going to as they spend time in the salon chair doing fun things like watching DVDs, playing video games and blowing bubbles. Three New York City locations plus its brand of kids hair care line, Cozy’s has become a childhood staple.

The So Cozy Makeup Collection includes, but not limited to:

• So Cozy Nail Polishes by ESSIE – These new pink shades are exclusive to So Cozy and will be the only shades used at Cozy’s Cuts for Kids NEW mini-manicure and pedicure stations. The collection includes School Girl (a light blush), Cotton Candy (the hue of everyone’s favorite light-as-air candy) and Pink Poodle (a bright pink that is perfect for pedicures).

• So Cozy Super Gloss – Super-shiny and super-tasty, these Vitamin A and E-enriched glosses come in easy-to-apply tubes. Flavored with scrumptious strawberry, So Cozy Super Gloss is available in 5 shades, Super Clear, Super Sweet (a light pink with a hint of shimmer), Super Raspberry (a light berry color), Super Candy (bubble gum pink with a hint of shimmer) and Super Charming (purplish pink with light shimmer).

• So Cozy Lip Sheen – Filled with the delicious scent of vanilla sugar, these low shine glosses are packed with good-for-you ingredients like shea butter, mango seed butter, olive oil, and Vitamins A, C and E. Packaged in tubes with a wand for finger-free application, So Cozy Gloss is available in two shades, Silk (a pale pink) and Angel (a slightly metallic pink).).
