YSL, Chanel, Dior, Anna Sui, Armani...lately it seems like every luxe label has a make-up line to match its clothes. Now Calvin Klein is getting in on the action, with a make-up collection that will launch with a Christina Ricci-hosted party next Thursday in Milan. Designer mascara makes sense for the brands; it opens up the label to a new bracket of consumers who might be able to drop $25 on a lip gloss, but not $2500 on a shirt. It also seems intuitive that girls would be glad to buy make-up that might make them look a little more like Catherine McNeil on the Dior runway. Still, we're not sure that we buy into the designer make-up craze. While we have clothing from labels with make-up lines, we don't own a single tube of lipstick from any of them--we prefer to pick up ours from giftbags, which means it's mostly MAC. But our sister swears by her Chanel glossimers, and maybe we're missing out. So tell us: Is YSL's blush to Benefit's as Calvin Klein's dresses are to Banana Republic's? --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
