bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals
Bare Escentuals started the revolution in mineral makeup over 30 years ago, with the introduction of 100% pure bareMinerals™. With over 30 years of experience, it’s no wonder it’s the #1 mineral makeup in the world. We are extremely proud to carry this award-winning, 100% natural formula, and we want to share with you what distinguishes it from the rest.
Being 100% pure bareMinerals without any preservatives, fillers, or binders is only the beginning of the story. bareMinerals has always been about using only the purest, highest quality minerals found in the earth. Mined in exclusive regions around the country, the proprietary formula represents a refined blend that does not compromise on quality.
The truth is – not all minerals are created equal. When you touch bareMinerals you will notice a creamy, delicately soft texture versus a dry and chalky feel found in other makeup brands.
All bareMinerals foundations, cheek and eye colors have been crushed to a silky, creamy powder form...but it's NOT a powder. These are 100% pure bareMinerals that are free of preservatives, talc, oil, fragrance and other harmful chemicals. The formula provides impeccable coverage for every skin type and skin tone, and protects with a natural sunscreen.
But bareMinerals are just the beginning. The i.d. makeup line also offers complete color cosmetics and treatments designed to enhance your natural beauty, such as lipsticks, lip liners, lip glosses, mascaras, skin preps, flawless application brushes and more.

An idea born of necessity on the set of Pearl Harbor , Julie needed to create her own line of long-lasting technicolor reds. The Noir Collection was the answer to the call for good, old-fashioned red lipstick made with today's updated, more natural ingredients.
Julie's philosophy has always been to work from the lips up. She was Inspired by her love of 1940's French black and white films, where the eyelid was clean and the lips were a strong sensual focal point. Throughout history red lipstick has been an absolute beauty staple, like the "little black dress". Embracing the divine, Julie has created these classic film noir colors which are ageless and timeless.
For every woman who never thought they could wear red lipstick, this is their line. Julie Hewett takes the intimidation out of wearing red. From sheer to matte with matching lip liners you'll be confident and feel beautiful.
Julie saw that even in this overcrowded marketplace there was still a lack of absolute beauty classics. Collaborating with leading chemists, Julie has made lipsticks of the highest quality natural ingredients. The lipsticks are made of a Camellia oil base, which is said to be the closest to human skin oil, creating a perfect natural texture. Also using pure essential oils for fragrance, such as rosebud and orange blossom oil. Julie Hewett's products perform to makeup artist's standards.
Celebrities have relied on Julie Hewett's exquisite eye for beauty for 20 years. We know you will too.
Julie has 20 years of experience working with such award-winning actresses as:
* Annette Bening
* Jodie Foster

* Winona Ryder
* Kate Beckinsale

Named for the Italian word for “touch” after its intricate embroideries and luxurious fabrics, TOCCA combines the best of the romantic and exotic. It is unabashedly feminine, in a sophisticated European interpretation. The collection evokes the European traveler on holiday, a sensibility that logically led to the launch of TOCCA Beauty in 1997 with three unique and unusual products: a solid perfume, a dry oil skin smoother and a laundry delicate for fine washables in “Touch”, a gardenia-based fragrance. These beautiful and portable items were intended for the European traveler on holiday. Emblematic of the free-spirited culture of the company, these products were unconventional categories with which to launch a beauty line. Yet they were an immediate success with the press as well as with retailers. With its distinctive and sophisticated fragrances, TOCCA Beauty quickly developed a cult following. TOCCA Beauty can now be found in an extensive family of aromatic candles, luxurious bath and body products and fine fabric washes and eau de parfum.
In autumn of 1996, the first freestanding TOCCA store opened in Tokyo to showcase TOCCA’s design philosophy with crystal chandeliers, vintage furniture and walls accented in the iconic TOCCA blue. There are now seven TOCCA stores throughout Japan. TOCCA’s clothing collection is also sold in select fine department and specialty stores in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia including Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Intermix, Frances Heffernan and Joseph in London. TOCCA Beauty is sold in select upscale stores such as Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Sephora, Bluemercury and C.O. Bigelow.
TOCCA’s sophisticated whimsy and beautiful design have garnered remarkable domestic and international press coverage including features in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, WWD, Elle and the New York Times. Celebrity devotees include Drew Barrymore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Natalie Portman and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Blinc has built a reputation for offering a selective, high-performance line of eye enhancement cosmetics that redefine their product types. It all began with blinc's Kiss Me mascara, the original mascara invented to form tiny water resistant "tubes" around your lashes. Kiss Me mascara continues to receive accolades as one of the best overall mascaras on the market by the top beauty magazines as well as a growing following of some of Hollywood's hottest stars (i.e., Jessica Alba, Rachel McAdams, Lucy Liu, etc.).
Blinc's Kiss Me liquid eyeliner applied the revolutionary "tube" technology to create a new approach to this old cosmetic standard. Once again achieving an intense look and unparalleled hold, yet easy removal without the use of a makeup remover, it was named as a "beauty breakthrough" by Prevention magazine.
Blinc then developed its multi functional lash primer/conditioner designed to amplify the effect of your mascara while it nourishes and protects the lashes.
Blinc’s entire line of eye cosmetics are easy to use, easy to take off, and help you look your best all day with no smudging!
