Well this is interesting – I had no idea that awards like this even existed!

Hooray for Mommy Makeup and theBalm!

I met Debra the founder of Mommy Makeup this summer at Cosmoprof and yes, her packaging is classic and functional, and her makeup is goof-proof and everything multi-tasks. Perfect for busy women or moms who want to look great.

Henna, Yeah, Extracts does seasonal awards. They are great fun to follow and sometimes you’ll find some fabulous new indie brands!

Jen, I have been SO wanting to try Mommy Makeup. Ahhh… maybe someday! :) (Think it would be okay since I’m just a mom to my pets?)
