Tyra Banks Just Bottled Her Infamous Smize

For those of you unfamiliar with the term "smize," allow me to offer a definition from the Tyra Banks-Webster Dictionary. Smize (noun): A fierce, sizzling eye expression, typically with the eyes squinting with maximum focus and intensity; the art of smiling with one's eyes.

An alternative definition? One part of Tyra's new makeup line, Tyra Beauty. That's right — the Top Model queen is rolling out her own assortment of cosmetics.
The main focus is eyes, in case you haven't guessed. Tyra's got a mascara and eyeliner. There's also a highlighter, a concealer, a shadow stick, a contour crayon, and more.
All 12 products range in price from $24-$78, and are meant to be, as Tyra puts it on the site, a "great beauty equalizer." Meaning, if you pick up some of Tyra's cosmetics, you, too, can strut your stuff like a Top Model. And, while that's all well and good, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that even with Tyra Beauty, I will never be jetting off to Prague or South Africa, yelling Tyra Mail! and posing — er, smizing — in front of Nigel Barker (although that is my secret dream). Whether Tyra's line stacks up remains to be seen, but in the meantime, I'll be over here working on my angles...
