beauty boost

Monday, April 4, 2011

AVENUEinsider has a strange obsession with beauty products–hoarding everything from perfume (I have nearly 20 bottles) to shampoo to lipstick/lip gloss/lip balm (literally, more than 150- though I refuse to count). Recently loving? The brand eos.

They first came on the market with their innovative, spherical lip balm. The sphere’s come in all sorts of yummy flavors and are 100% natural, 95% organic and 100% adorable. They are sold in drugstores but AVENUEinsider HAS spotted them in higher end stores with a jacked-up price tag (aka $12 instead of $3, still chump change!)– which only proves how hot they really are. And while we suppose there is no price for beauty, eos’s price tag is just an added bonus.

What’s even more interesting is the brand is now hosting events like Star Magazine’s All Hollywood event this past weekend in L.A. They have a celeb cult following like Julie Benz from Desperate Housewives and Dexter, Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick, Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz, and the insanely gorgeous Bar Rafaeli (and we think we’d try just about anything she uses!).

Starting today, eos will be giving away their new hand lotions. To score one, ‘Like’ eos on facebook ( and click on the giveaway tab. Or, you could just stroll into Walgreens and pick up one for yourself. Either way, we know you are just one try away from a beauty boost and brand obsession. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
