We're not ashamed to admit we like our makeup pretty — in the hand as well as on the face. This explains why Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks come in such fancy gold lipstick bullets and why Kardazzle Compacts exist at all. Bobbi Brown, known for her dependable collection of artists' tools, has created a new set of makeup brushes that have diffused gold handles and come in a nice little metallic faux-leather case (helpful for preventing a dusty makeup mess in your bag). There are four mini-brushes in total and the eyeliner brush — once cleaned— can double as a lip brush.
