Rock & Republic Cosmetics?

Denim line Rock & Republic has taken their urban glitz ethos into the cosmetics arena. Their new line is decked out in black and chromed-out compacts featuring a bold version of the company logo and the color names aspire to Hollywood decadence with names like "trust fund," "train wreck" and a shade of red lip gloss called "cougar." The bronzing and highlighting powder duo comes in a crystal-encrusted compact that sells for $225 in three shades called Private Jet, Villa and Penthouse. Erin Weinger of the LA Times checked out the line and questioned whether or not the products are more flash than substance. Sounds like the cosmetics are right in line with the denim brand's overall style.
