Elizabeth Street Cosmetics
Established in 2011, Elizabeth Street Cosmetics is a boutique collection of lipsticks and glosses created by Kelly Crispen, the owner and colour stylist, and based in San Francisco.
All colours were originally named for streets in Victorian laced Noe Valley but seasonal colour 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.
Kelly's love affair with lipstick began in junior high. She would spend hours after school in her Grandpa's pharmacy swatching and trying every Revlon Moon Drops lip colour 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, she began to dream about creating a small niche brand of her own.
Later having added years of beauty experience as a Make-Up Artist with MAC and Bobbi Brown, she set out to design a specialty lip range using natural ingredients for a well edited colour collection with an urban feel.
Given today’s busy lifestyles and desires to pare down beauty routines, lipsticks and gloss are key essentials. There's something reminiscent and slightly indulgent about putting on a favourite 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.
