Mommy Makeup received the "Best New Product" Award (Cosmetic & Fragrance) for their Pretty-n-Polished™ Makeup Kit at EX*TRACTS® on August 13, 2007.
The Pretty-n-Polished Mineral Makeup Kit is a collection of six multi-tasking mineral makeup products that allow a woman to do her entire face in about six minutes, saving time, energy and money.
Each Pretty-n-Polished Makeup Kit includes 'Paint-By-Numbers' Instructions and Face Chart, for mistake proof application.
Mommy Makeup - http://www.mommymakeup.com - is targeted at women, specifically moms, who are looking to simplify their makeup routine without sacrificing results. Mommy Makeup was created by award-winning makeup artist and New York City Mom, Debra Rubin-Roberts, to simplify the busy mom's daily beauty routine.
"When I first became a mom I barely had enough time to brush my teeth, let alone put on my makeup," said Debra Rubin-Roberts, Mommy Makeup's founder. "The application technique I developed and using the products in the Pretty-n-Polished kit allows a woman to apply her makeup in 5-7 minutes." "There are other makeup kits out there, but they either do just your eyes, just your lips, or just foundation and bronzer, but not the entire face, and not in 6 minutes," continued Rubin-Roberts.
Each Pretty-n-Polished kit comes in a range of 5 shades from LIGHT to DARK and includes:
- Paint by Numbers Instructions & Face Chart
- Mommy's Little Helper Concealer (eye shadow base, under eye concealer and face coverup)
- Mineral Dual Powder SPF8 (pressed mineral foundation, powder, SPF8)
- Eye Triplets (all over shadow, contour color, wet/dry liner in one compact)
- Lush Mascara
- Mineral Bronze-n-Blush (pressed mineral bronzer and blush in one compact)
- Mommy's Kisses (coordinating lipliner hidden in handle of lipgloss)
- Black Mesh Makeup Bag
Pretty-n-Polished Makeup Kit retails for $120.00
"When a woman goes to a department store counter for a makeover, she can easily spend $300 or more on makeup for her entire face. She'll walk away with 13-14 items and only really use half of them." said Rubin-Roberts. "Pretty-n-Polished includes 6 products that do your entire face for a third of the cost".
"EX*TRACTS is recognized as a resource for pioneering personal care. This competition showcases the industry's most creative and innovative suppliers and their new product introductions," said Rita Malek, Show Manager, EX*TRACTS.
Judges were: Marie Redding, Senior Editor, CPC Packaging; Meredith Schwartz, Business Editor, Gifts & Decorative Accessories; Tracy Sherwood, Assistant Editor, Global Cosmetic Industry; Pamela Graves, editorial representative of, Giftware News; and Michelle Edgar, Associate Beauty Features Editor, Women's Wear Daily.
EX*TRACTS is held concurrently with the New York International Gift Fair® and New York Home Textiles Market Week®.
