JERSEY CITY, N.J., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IT Cosmetics® (Innovative Technology Cosmetics), a leader in the prestige color cosmetics market, has been honored with an Independent Cosmetics Manufacturers and Distributors' (ICMAD) 2014 Cosmetic Innovator of the Year (CITY) Award in the "Product Innovation: Accessories & Tools" category for one of its latest problem-solving innovations, Heavenly Luxe® 10-in-1 Tightliner™ Brush.

In its ninth annual year, ICMAD's CITY Award winners are viewed as the gold standard in the cosmetics industry. With a panel of five beauty insiders ranging from editors and creative directors to entrepreneurs and key executives, the CITY Awards have become one of the most esteemed honors in the industry that recognizes breakthrough product innovation, revolutionary packaging and unique advertising campaigns.

The Heavenly Luxe® 10-in-1 Tightliner™ Brush delivers a one-of-a-kind application like no other eyeliner brush on the market. The custom cut fence design of the brush solves a problem no other eyeliner brush can solve; the fence cut actually applies cream or gel eyeliner both along the lash line and simultaneously in between every lash, creating a full-looking lash line and "tightliner" effect, even if you have sparse or missing lashes. The reverse side of the brush is ergonomically angled for flawless inner rim application. The Heavenly Luxe® 10-in-1 Tightliner™ Brush can be used to achieve 10 different eye looks when used in conjunction with the Liner Love™ Waterproof Anti-Aging Creme Gel Eyeliner.

"We are thrilled and honored to be recognized for our Product Innovation at this year's CITY Awards. Our team at IT Cosmetics® pours its heart and soul into creating truly innovative, problem-solving products that make the lives of our customers better and help them look and feel their most beautiful.  Recognition like this for our novel innovation from such an esteemed panel of experts is truly exciting," says Co-Founder and CEO Jamie Kern Lima.
