Isn’t it romantic? ... New lipsticks and glosses from Edward Bess at Bergdorf Goodman
Sneak Peek and Review by Jessica M
“It’s autumn in New York that brings the promise of new love” – “Autumn in New York,” lyrics by Vernon Duke,
performed by Ella Fitzgerald (and many others)
Edward Bess recently made a personal appearance at Bergdorf Goodman in New York and demonstrated the newest, easy-to-love products in his self-titled cosmetics line. If you read Annie’s original post about Edward in December 2007, or you’ve tried his makeup yourself, you know that he’s a perfectionist about the colors, textures, packaging, and overall high quality of his cosmetics.
This autumn brings us three new Ultra Slick Lipstick colors and three new Deep Shine Lip Gloss shades in the Edward Bess line. Most of these amour-themed shades fall into the plum/berry family. This makes me happy, because they flatter pale skin and/or dark hair (like mine!), but they’ll work well with many other skin tones as well.
The three lipstick shades, as seen and swatched on Edward’s hand, are Night Romance (left), Forever Yours (center), and Tender Love (right). All three are beautiful, and Tender Love in particular made my heart skip a beat. ($29 each)
The three gloss shades, as held in his hand, are Nude Satin (left), Love Always (center), and Sweet Dream (right). Worn alone, they’re sleek and sheer. Applied over the lipsticks, they add depth and shine without any stickiness. ($28 each)
These new products are also packaged in sets of three lipsticks or three glosses, nestled into little black boxes. ($75 each set).
Edward will be introducing more new items this autumn, including a makeup bag and a cream blush. When we asked him, he admitted that he’d love to release an Edward Bess fragrance someday, too. His current favorite fragrances are the IUNX line by Olivia Giacobetti, so he obviously has good taste in scent as well as in beauty!
