As described here, Joeybunny and I had a wonderful time at Bergdorf Goodman’s makeup counters last week to investigate lovely new things. This includes new lipsticks and glosses from Edward Bess, which will be available in December for sale.
I’m really happy that Neiman Marcus has begun carrying Edward Bess’ products–the more Edward Bess used in the world, the better. I’ve been really pleased with everything from this line that I’ve tried so far. In fact, I have a little corner of my top makeup drawer where my Edward Bess items are–he makes such beautiful basics and I use them so frequently.
During our visit, Joeybunny and I took a look at three new glosses and three new lipsticks that will be launching soon. First up, the new Deep Shine Glosses are red Amore, pink fuchsia First Kiss and a soft, light pink called French Lace ($30 each).
The new Ultra Slick Lipsticks are the pink Blush Allure, medium pink Rose Demure and deep nude Demi Buff ($32). As you can see, these were displayed in new, square-tube packaging that coordinates nicely with the other sleek packaging in Edward Bess’ line. In the picture, the older round packaging is in the back, the square packaging is used on the new shades in the front:

While I was at the counter, I couldn’t resist placing an pre-order for Bergdorf’s upcoming gift card event— for a $100 purchase, you receive a $25 gift card–nice, right? If you are interested in taking advantage for some Edward Bess items, you can call Susan at the Edward Bess counter at Bergdorfs (212 872 8826). Susan has helped me with phone orders several times in the past, and she has been wonderful with advice and service. At the same time, you might want to ask her about Edward Bess’ new blush– a well pigmented mauve-rose called “Moroccan Rose” that I couldn’t resist, which will be available for the gift card event. There is also a new compact rouge called Love Affair, reviewed here by The Beauty Look Book, that will be available for the event.
