Fashion & Beauty is a part of my genetic makeup neither rain nor sleet (even snow) will allow me to forgo my keen sense of style or beauty ambissions. Anyhoos fast forward and after an unsuccessful attempt to snag a cab at Grand Central I decide to hike it on the train and grab a cross town bus. I was moving.. tripod, heels and all!
Make Up Artist Extrodinaire and DEX New York Founder Dexter Phillip
I arrive fashionably late and enter a gorgeous townhouse packed with beauty folks and media insiders. A few air kisses & mini-hugs hugs and I head over to peek in on the collection and even get a chance to chat with the man of the hour hinself. Dex was an absolute gem (and a fellow Brookynite).... Not only did he brief me on the collection he shared his passion for the beauty industry and his quest to establish a cosmetic company that would compliment women of every shade from Sweden to Sudan. Haute!
The Dish: Dex introduces a vibrant mix of runway and street inspired hues that comprise a unique collection of mineral make up. Each of the stunning products are animal cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, sun protection formulated, and eco-friendly. We Like!
Side Note: Each shade is named after iconic streets (Wall Street Onyx, High Line Metallic Blue and Schubert Alley Cantaloupe), music-filled neighborhoods (Harlem Night’s Sapphire, The Met Star White, Rockefeller Gold), idyllic New York getaway spots (Sag Harbor, Montauk) and even once-existent notorious nightclubs (Twilo, Limelight, Studio 54), that DEX himself experienced, lived through and loved, DEX brings New York’s vivacity alive through his mineral makeup collection.
I was fortunate to depart with my own customized palette and will share my reviews with you lovely folks shortly. In the meantime head over to DEX New York and browse the collection. I'm sure you'll love the Charlotte Palette (yes Sex and the City Charlotte), Carrol Street Ruby Girl and Body Glow Sunless Tanner as much as I do!
