It seemed only fitting to do a post on a brand that is dominating my makeup drawer as of late & just happens to be a local gem brought to life by the owner of Private Edition and Cosmetic Market, Linda Roberts. The brand, Therapy Systems is sold at both of her cult classic boutiques (the staff at Private Edition know me by name) and apparently is sold in boutiques stretching as far as Hong Kong. I think Linda and I probably have many similarities… it appears our favorite store is also the same – H. Audrey – deserves a post of its own!
My love of Therapy Systems started with a single “Smoky Taupe” shadow, I got near daily compliments on it & suddenly I’d scooped up three more shades. My new fav is “Broadway” – a perfect lightest of light brown with just a hint of violet & shimmer. I passed these shadows in Linda’s boutiques for years and never tried one – true they’re so much more gorgeous on than in their pretty mirrored packaging.
As a major lip balm addict I’m surprised I’m just now trying Therapy Systems’ Rx for Lips. I bought it Sunday while fretting over an Omorvicza balm that seems to have disappeared in my own home. I didn’t want to shell out $50 for a new one knowing the lost one would surely surface soon… no doubt hidden in a Manolo somewhere by my toddler. I also knew I needed something more powerful than Smith’s Salve (no disrespect to that brand, which I adore)… Enter the $32 RX for Lips which contains just a touch of retinol to plump your pout and swiftly rid it of any dry/dead skin. Ideal for under your lipstick or worn alone to constantly kiss your child without leaving any colored residue.
I read an article dated back to 2005 that said Linda planned to be the next Estee Lauder. To that I’d have to say, Get it, Girl!
