In PR you live for placements. And that's why the New York Time's Nov. 30th Beauty Spot makes me ecstatic. Not one, but TWO amazing products that I had the opportunity to work with are featured. The first is Urban Decay's "Tool Kit". Can I just I LOVE this product?? It includes two colors to fill in brows, and a clear wax to set everything when you're finished. On top of that, you will find in the second tier of this little jewel box, the most adorable mini-tweezers in the world. I love mini things. Will I replace my tweezerman with this pint-sized cutie? Well, no. But it's perfect for on the go touch-ups.
The second, which I'm even more excited about (if that's possible) is Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color. If you love their liquid eyeliner (which obviously everyone does, even the competition) then you'll be hooked on this brow color. A huge congratulations to my friend and invaluable mentor Ariana Voyer of Linda Gaunt Communications for this placement! To read a bio on Ariana and learn more about how she got to her current position in the PR world check out this interview with my fabulous friend Julia!
Pencil Me In
Did you over-pluck? The YouTube beauty sensation Michelle Phan has created a $19 defining pencil, the Em arched brow liner, which comes with a spoolie applicator brush on the opposite end, in five shades: ash blond, medium brown, caramel, brunet and black (emcosmetics.com). And Stila offers a watercolorlike applicator brush in light, medium and dark colors ($21 at stilacosmetics.com).
Urban Decay has recently redesigned its Brow Box, a three-layered metallic eggplant-colored compact that contains two powder shades, setting wax, mini tweezers and two angled brushes and mirrors. Available in Brown Sugar and Honey Pot, for $29 at Sephora, Ulta and some Macy’s stores.
And yes people, it's now normal to put makeup on your eyebrows. Humans are weird, just go with it.
