Cosmetic Designer Spotlight: Carol's Daughter

Cosmetic Designer Spotlight: Carol's Daughter

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!

I used to use ton's of CD products back in the day, when they were a wee bit more affordable (before Ms. Pinkett-Smith was their spokesperson!). They're all fabulous, but now I only shell out the cash for the hair products, which are a must for my kinky hair. If I did have more money, I'd definitely spring for their mango butter, as well as the sage and shea foot cream and the lemon and rose hand cream. The original CD store is in Brooklyn, and it is a beautiful space as well.

Sounds awesome I'm a woman of color (Asian) and I get very dry and ashy in the winter, maybe that's just genetic but anyhow I can't wait to try these!

I have frizzy hair (I'm asian and caucasian) and have tried a few of her products and just love them! They smell delightful and really work.

These products ARE great, especially for women of color (meaning black, brown, you get it). It smells so good too, like coconut, vanilla warm scents. All natural ingredients too. I first learned of this while babysitting a little girl who had (dare I say) nappy hair. They have this oil that made her hair so shiny and smooth and easy to comb.
