Carol's Daughter is one of the fastest growing indie beauty brands. Founded by Lisa Price, in 1993, in a kitchen in Brooklyn, the celebrity-packed cosmetics company is opening its first mall store in Garden City, N.Y, on Long Island. Backed by star investors such as Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and Jay-Z, keep your eyes and noses open for these homemade concoctions using wholesome ingredients ranging from luscious mangoes to refreshing peppermint. Current offerings include hair, bath & body, hands & feet, fragrance, mommy-to-be, men, babies & kids and gift sets.
The company's flagship store is in Harlem and they also have an online store. More big news: Carol's Daughter is coming out with their first color cosmetics collection in April. The lip gloss line, which I'm most interested in, will be called Candy Paint and include 12 shades, each $14.95.
I've got my eye on this Ocean Shea Souffle, $25 for 16 oz., to appease my dry, winter skin. Oh, and this is Mary J. Blige's pick that helps her achieve her glow - sold!
