MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Skylark by Elle and Blair, the new cosmetic line created by YouTube sensations Elle and Blair Fowler, has yet to be released and it has already built a passionate and highly engaged fan base. Blair Fowler announced in a YouTube video on Thursday, June 14, 2012 that presale sign-up for the debut products is available now on blush.com, the exclusive distributor of Skylark. Within minutes of the video's launch, blush.com crashed due to an unprecedented number of site visits—over 10 times the daily average.

"We are thrilled to know that Elle and Blair's fans are so enthusiastic about Skylark," stated Dan Obegi, blush.com and DermStore.com's CEO. "While we knew they had a devoted following, we could have never imagined numbers like this."

Skylark by Elle and Blair will be released in September 2012 on blush.com and will coincide with the release of the sisters' first novel, Beneath the Glitter, which will be published by St. Martin Press. Skylark by Elle and Blair will release two lip glosses inspired by the novel's main characters, Sophia and Ava London. The line will continually expand with new products added seasonally.
