This morning, news broke that British model Jemma Kidd's eponymous beauty line was going into "adminstration," which is a fancy English way of saying "bankruptcy." When the news was confirmed, Kidd tweeted, "It's so sad but it's not over. I was just too trusting. Light as air foundation will be back. Watch this space." What's a JK beauty lover to do? Hit eBay to stock up on lipsticks a la Elaine Benes hoarding sponges, of course.
Right now, there are about 200 products up for grabs, including lipsticks, blushes, eye palettes, and - yes - light as air foundation. BeautyIncStore had seven tubes of the stuff for sale and there are still four left at $38 a pop. Other good deals include this limited-edition "Fashionista" kit and plenty of the brand's high-shine SPF 15 lipstick, a major beauty editor favorite on the other side of the pond.
