The only places to buy it are at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC (didn’t I tell you New York gets everything?) and online at EdwardBess.com — needless to say, there’s not much opportunity for swatching, though the product photos look so pretty that I want it all, sight unseen.
I do have some intelligence on his holiday collection, though, so I thought I might as well share those images with you.
Basically, there are three items: an eyeshadow trio, a “pot rouge,” and a lip liner. They’re sold separately, OR you can buy them together (with a makeup bag) and that’s called the Jet Set Collection. The collection is $125; the trio is $60; the compact rouge is $36; and the lipliner is $28. Yes, 60 + 36 + 28 = 124.
The Island Escape Eyeshadow Trio (for those of us who winter in St. John) is a palette of three lovely neutrals. The shades (Skylight, Warm Sand, and Sunset Dune) are not listed individually on EdwardBess.com, so if you love them, this palette is your only option.
The Compact Rouge (a sheer, cream product for cheeks and lips) is called Island Rose. The Defining Lip Liner (his first foray into the category) is an automatic, waterproof pencil in shade “Natural,” which claims to be both creamy and long-lasting.
Do you own any Edward Bess? Is it fabulous? Tell me what I’m missing.
