Edward Bess at Zuneta – The Launch

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 28 - 2010

With the new Edward Bess range firmly settled into it’s new UK home at Zuneta, I thought it was time to bring you some product shots from the launch I attended a few weeks ago.

A busy swatch table at the launch.  Makeup, check.  Cameras, check.  Tissues, check.

Edward Bess Blush Imperiale (£36) – L,R – Soft Orchid, Desert Bloom, Moroccan Rose

Edward Bess Blush Imperiale swatches – L,R – Soft Orchid, Desert Bloom, Moroccan Rose

Edward Bess Eyeshadow Trios (£44) – L,R – Island Escape, Soft Smoke

Edward Bess Lip Wardrobe (£310)

Edward Bess Compact Rouge (£30) L,R – After Sunset, Love Affair, Island Rose.

The Compact Rouge pots are something rather special… smooth, silky and pigmented.  My heart has been stolen by more products than I can afford.  To be blunt, this is an expensive range.  For me, it’s an aspirational range.  The packaging is plain but sleek with quality casings… some will admire it’s simplicity, others may regard it as lacking in personality.

Edward Bess Midnight Sun Set (£136)

Before seeing the products in person, I was particularly keen to check out the Daydream bronzer and it didn’t disappoint.  Soft, creamy and natural – even on my pink hard-to-please skintone.

Edward Bess Ultra Luminous Eyeshadow (£22) – L,R – Intimate, Escape, Dusk, Mystery.

I was surprised by how much I fell in love with the Ultra Luminous Eyeshadow in Intimate.  I don’t do greens… but this khaki is something quite special.  Texture wise, I slightly favour the Rouge Bunny Rouge formula which blows me away… but I’m smitten by Intimate and Dusk and am in the process of working out how many excuses I can invent to part with the £44 needed to purchase.

.

I will definitely be purchasing the Ultra Luminous Eyeshadow in Intimate.  I aspire to own the Daydream bronzer… but not until I finish the equally lovely Guerlain Teracotta Light Sheer Bronzer in Blondes.  I will also spend the next few months lusting after a compact rouge… but knowing that I would only use it as a cream blusher, I know that I can spend less and fall in love with other cream blushers to the same degree.

This is a line for women who want to enhance with quality cosmetics.  Subtle enhancement with luxury products is (for me) the epitome of what I want to see in my makeup bag.  If you’re looking for a compact collection of beautiful products to achieve subtle but effective enhancements, Edward Bess is worth exploring further.

    I googled this looked through some other reviews and they do really seem to be cult products. you either love em or hate em. I personally would love a taupe eyeshadow, I think dusk, but i probably wouldn’t buy online. I like the clean sophistication of the brand too. Would also love to try some of the lipsticks.

    it all looks so lovely, I want to get my hands on one of the nudey lipsticks but Zuneta was out of stock of the shade I wanted (blessing?)

    It’s all so so expensive, but I guess that’s the price you pay for quality? I’m not sure, still on the fence x

  3. Not the kind of shades I’d wear, but it all looks so luxe and like it should come in a locked briefcase handcuffed to somebody’s arm >;D

    I’m so glad to have come across this post! and especially since you’ve mention RBR which i’m trying to find out as much as possible about before i place a sight-unseen order at zuneta. what items do you love in RBR? I’m aiming for the EB bronzer and few RBR eyeshadows and their blush wand. However the smokey eye Edward did in a zuneta video makes me long for that makeup simplicity his line provides.
    thanks for your help!
