5 Products to Try From Catbird's Secret Beauty Section
Catbird, a Brooklyn-based jewelry store that opened in 2004 on Bedford Avenue, can pretty much take all the credit for making dainty, barely-there jewelry downright covetable. Allure editors are obsessed—and even more so when we realized the beauty section was as thoughtful and tightly edited as the jewelry cases. “We take the same approach towards both,” says Leigh Batnick Plessner, Catbird’s co-creative director. “They have to bring us happiness without being fussy. That’s why we’ll carry a rose face mist in a beautiful bottle, but never an eye cream.” Another thing they’ll definitely carry? A damn good velvet lip gloss. Starting tomorrow, with every $200 online Catbird purchase, shoppers will receive a free full-size tube of the new Nars Velvet Lip Glide in either No. 54, Toy, or Danceteria (below). “We’ve always appreciated the minimalist Nars design, and we wear a lot their makeup,” says the store’s founder and co-creative director Rony Vardi. “It feels authentic and exciting to be working together.” The promotion lasts through Monday October 10th, or whiles supplies last. Why not take this bright bonus as an incentive to discover a handful of pretty little treasures you won’t find anywhere else? Don’t mind if we do.
