COLOR YOUR WORLD: Skin-care start-up vbeauté is now into colors. The year-old brand has launched an antiaging lip gloss containing self-adjusting botanicals that react to the user’s lip chemistry to create a unique tint for the user.
The gloss, called Lip Spread, is available in a 0.34-fl.-oz. tube that retails on the vbeaute.com site for $28. Also, in development for launch early next year is a new line of lip colors as the firm takes a first dip into color cosmetics.
