Alexis Bittar Designs the Prettiest Makeup Brushes Ever for Sephora

Oct/16/2014 at 03:09 PM ET

Celeb-loved jewelry designer Alexis Bittar is crossing over to the beauty world with a much-anticipated, limited-edition collection of makeup accessories that will make you feel so fancy. Just like Bittar’s signature jewels, the brushes are made of lucite, 24-karat-plated gold and Swarovski crystal embellishments. The collection includes three pieces: a full brush set with a stand to display them in, a touch-up brush and travel wrap and an impossibly glamorous compact. Let’s take a look.

Since we’re total smoky eye addicts, we’re loving the Beauty Brush Set and Stand ($175). It has every tool you could need to create perfectly sultry, smoked-out lids: a shadow brush, smudger and angled liner brush. It also comes with two complexion essentials: a powder brush and an angled brush for blush and contouring. “Luxury is in the detail, not in the price point. that’s my belief,” Bittar tells PEOPLE. “For example, designing a stand for the brush set made sense. Aesthetically it’s a throwback to 1950s women’s boudoirs and how they would display perfumes.”

The Best Smelling (and Most Moisturizing) Lip Balm We've Ever Tried

Oct/06/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We totally get the idea of being loyal to one kind of moisturizer, one kind of shampoo, one particular perfume, one brand of mascara. But, to be totally frank, we never felt that way about lip balm. We were never loyal to a certain brand, going out of our way to get it because it’s so, so much better than what’s stocked in the drugstore. Well, we didn’t feel that way until we tried these amazing lip butters. Watch the video below (it’s really a shame smellivision hasn’t been invented because the scent is incredible), try them out then join us in our loyalty to one kind of lip balm.

You can shop the three yummy-smelling scents by clicking the product in the tray just below the video or by going here. If you’re a first-time Joyus.com shopper, you get an extra 15% off by entering STYLE15 at checkout. (But before you check out, take a look at the other awesome stuff — including picks by the PEOPLE Style & Beauty Team — by going here.

MORE STUFF WE LOVE: THE TOTALLY WACKY (BUT TOTALLY EFFECTIVE) BEAUTY PRODUCT THAT’LL GIVE YOU SOFT, CALLOUS-FREE FEET

The rose, the blood orange and the mint all smell so good that this editor has taken to treating the butters like a solid perfume and dabbing a bit on her pulse points. It also has another (intended) use: As a cuticle softener. But most importantly, this stuff makes your lips soft. Like, really soft. It’s all-natural, but it really works. And it doesn’t smudge off within an hour of being applied (like a lot of other balms). And if you’re a lipstick wearer, you definitely need this stuff in your makeup bag. Swipe a bit on your lips then when you apply the lipstick, the color will go on so much smoother, plus it’ll stay put longer.

Oh, and did we mention these lip butters smell amazing?
