Qosmedix was created by Stuart Herskovitz in 1987

-Qosmedix is known as the pioneer in disposable products for the cosmetic, spa and salon industries 

-Herskovitz was walking through a department store when he noticed customers trying on a lipstick and placing it back into the display unit. It was then that he realized the need for disposables to reduce the risk of cross-contamination

BEAUTY TREND: METALLIC MAKEUP

The latest beauty trend? Heavy metal! Not the rock and roll kind, rather bold metallic makeup in shades of silver, gold, bronze and even pops of bright colors for the most daring. Major makeup artists like Peter Philips for Chanel and Pat McGrath for Versace are embracing this trend on the runway as well as Hollywood’s hottest stars on the red carpet. Whether you choose a subtle shine or all out glitz, metallics pop on every skin tone!

Here are some of our favorite metallic products:
