Established in 2011, Elizabeth Street Cosmetics is a boutique collection of lipsticks and glosses based in San Francisco. All colors were originally named for streets in Victorian laced Noe Valley but seasonal color stories have expanded to names for streets in the vibrant Castro, hipster Mission, edgy Potrero, stylish Hayes Valley, posh Pac Heights, iconic North Beach, bustling Union Square, hippie inspired Haight Ashbury, lovely Laurel Heights and rustic Glen Park.
My love affair with lipstick began in junior high. I would spend hours after school in my Grandpa's pharmacy swatching and trying every Revlon Moon Drops lip color he carried. It was love at first sight. After working years later in cosmetics as an In-Store Trainer and Account Coordinator for Chanel and Lancome, I began to dream about creating a small niche brand of my own. Later having added years of beauty experience as a Make-Up Artist with MAC and Bobbi Brown, I set out to design a specialty lip range using natural ingredients for a well edited color collection with an urban feel.
Given today’s busy lifestyles and desires to pare down beauty routines, lipstick and gloss are key essentials. There's something reminiscent and slightly indulgent about putting on a favorite shade…it’s one of life’s little treasures and simple pleasures.
Elizabeth Street Cosmetics are free of parabens, infused with antioxidants and hints of vanilla, mint or sweet cherry juice.
Hope you enjoy them!
