Bella Brand: Dianne Brill Cosmetics


Before Samantha Ronson and the Misshapes were fixtures on Manhattan's nightlife scene, there was Dianne Brill. Known in the '80s as the "Queen of the Night," she's moved into the new century with an eponymous line of makeup. Inspired by the boudoir, the products feature packaging designed to look like a pair of fishnet stockings.

I haven't tried much from this line, but I do like its Lip Lingerie lipstick ($23). I have it in Cuban Heel, a slightly brown, deep red. It has a rich, satiny finish with long-lasting color. Dianne Brill also has eye shadows, glosses and all of the other colorful things you'd expect; unfortunately, though, there are only five shades of foundation, so I'd stick with the lip and eye colors. The collection is available online, so happy browsing!
