What would be the perfect things to say if your makeup could talk to you?

When you open some of the Cynthia Rowley Cosmetics items, the words are:

“You’re so pretty!”

“I Love your eyes!”

“How come you’re so pretty?”

Cynthia Rowley Cosmetics has been discontinued for a while, and I am missing it. It has the kind of beautiful packaging (without over-doing the cuteness) that I really love. The shade of blue is soft and refreshing, and the jewel detail adds a touch of glamor.

The colors are vibrant without being harsh or gaudy. There are a lot of pastel shades in their eyeshadows, and their lipsticks have a good selection of colors.

The brow powder set I have is great. It has two shades of brow powder, a tweezer, an angled powder brush, and a brow brush.

I am aware that Cynthia Rowley is launching a one-off collection in fall 2007 for Avon. But, packaging-wise alone, it is not as good as her original line.

If you have used Cynthia Rowley Cosmetics before, please drop me a line and share your experience. It’ll be nice to hear from you!

Also, our charity drive, Comments for a Cure, is still going on today for the final day (June 6th). Come and leave a comment!

Thank you for your comment, Anna!

I bought the two Cynthia Rowley items in Japan but I remember they were available on in the US.

I do kind of wish I bought a *bit* more back then…

i wish i could have seen the collection before this one. the colors, etc. are pretty, but this looks like it’s geared towards teens.

It probably was, especially in the US , where there are very distinct consumer groups. I think in Japan, where it used to be very popular, it seemed to have a slightly broader appeal across ages.

(By the way, these items were from the basic line-up and not from any of the the seasonal collections.)

Thank you for stopping by again!

This brow powder set is awesome! How can i get one? :) I've never heard about these cosmetics!

Unfortunately, these items have been discontinued. (I feature the discontinued products that I like in the "Bring It Back!" series.) But I think Chanel still has a similar one, with three eyebrow shades and three tools/applicators in the compact.

Thank you for your question! :)
