Two years ago, we met Nina Leykind, a former makeup artist who founded her own beauty range with husband Max. She was too cute, and too cool, and gave us a favorite gloss: Liparazzi. It was a giant glittery tube of lip shine, and when you clicked it, the case lit up like a flashlight. We kept it in our Venetia bag to search for keys; we smuggled it under the covers to read late at night. It was pretty brilliant, and we loved it. Then yesterday on the subway, a friend lent us some lipgloss. It came in the same flashlight tube, with the same rectangular mirror on the side. Only the logo didn't say "Liparazzi" - it said Rimmel Light Beam. It seems the British makeup company has made a new product with a little too much inspiration - Perhaps when they saw their spokesgirl, Kate Moss, copying vintage Versace for her TopShop line, they got an idea of their own?
