Nicole Scherzinger let her mouth do all the talking for her at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards. With her bold, super-bright, pink lips she was definitely making a bold statement. Women with high self confidence should have no problem rocking a color this bright on their mouth, but if you are a little more unsure of yourself you might want to opt for a slightly more subtle shade.

To copy Nicole’s lips you need look no further than these three possibilities.

Well, the fact that the temperature has been steadily dropping over the past couple weeks can only mean one thing: fall is upon us. But we’re actually extremely excited, not only because we can start wearing our cozy sweaters but because we can break out products in all the most delicious scents of the season. Check out our favorites.

Not just for Thanksgiving anymore! We love the berries’ rich red hue and the sweet yet tart scent.

June Jacobs Spa Collection Cranberry Body Balm
Dry, ashy skin? Not with this nourishing lotion by your side. Shea butter, jojoba and sunflower oils and soy extract work to condition even the driest skin.
$50 at

The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Polish
Smooth out all the rough patches with this exfoliator. The scent is a bit on the fruitier side, so don’t overload.
$19 at

Lather Cranberry Sugar Rub
We can’t think of anything more blissful than rubbing this tub of cranberry goodness into our skin during a shower. It smells exactly like cranberry sauce.
$19 at

Pumpkin and Apple
Two of the scents that most identify with fall! We really want to go to a pumpkin patch and go apple picking now.

Slatkin & Co. Farmstand Apple Mini Candle
This candle seriously smells exactly like fresh-picked McIntosh apples. Really and truly.
$3.50 at

Lush Jacko Soak
Doesn’t this adorable soak just make you want to carve pumpkins now? We can’t guarantee that jack-o-lanterns are in your future, but this will definitely add some fuzzy goodness to your next bath.
$5.95 at

Bluewick Sweet Pumpkin Deco Cylinder
Luckily this candle has a burn time of up to 150 hours, because we’re planning on using it all fall (and winter) long.
$35 at

Vanilla and Brown Sugar
What would fall be without a little sweetness in the kitchen—or, in this case, in the product closet?

Method Orla Kiely Vanilla Chai Naturally Derived Hand Wash
We’re suckers for anything vanilla, and this almost cures our craving for Starbucks. Almost. Plus, we love the packaging.
$3.99 at

Fresh Brown Sugar Eau de Parfum
We love brown sugar, and the sweet yet not cloying scent of this fragrance. Plus, it’s better to wear it than to eat it! (At least by calorie counting’s standards.)
$38 at

Breast-Cancer-Awareness-Products-2012.jpgEvery year, dozens upon dozens of beauty companies band together in the fight against breast cancer. They each donate a portion of proceeds from the sale of products that month toward fighting the terrible disease. Some are existing products; others, products created specifically for this purpose. In any case, every little bit helps and we’re proud to do our part in the fight. Below, the five products we urge you to buy this month.

Clinique Pink With A Purpose
An exclusive shade of Clinique’s best-selling Chubby Stick, the pretty-as-a-picture Plumped Up Pink, comes with its very own miniature makeup bag.
$16 at $3 from each one sold will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

La Mer The Hand Treatment
One of our favorite hand creams of all time, thanks to the fact that it makes skin feel like silk. And this month, it’s even more prudent to purchase.
$75 at $10 from each one sold will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Orly Be Brave Nail Lacquer
Part of Orly’s Pretty in Pink collection, this nail polish comes complete with a BCA ribbon charm and is made up of pink holographic bar glitter suspended in a clear base. It’s best layered over a solid cream, but it’s definitely guaranteed to make people stop and stare.
$10 at 20 percent of proceeds will be donated to Cancer Schmancer.

Sonia Kashuk Proudly Pink Brush Set
Five makeup brushes (powder/blush, concealer, eyeshadow, crease and eyeliner), plus a pretty silver pink carrying case. What’s not to love?
$15.99 at 15 percent of proceeds will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Nails Inc. Pinkie Pink
A multitude of pink sparkles that applies almost completely opaque in just one coat—and looks like jewelry. Be forewarned: the polish does apply on the rough side, so it’s best to use topcoat for a less gritty texture.
$9.50 at $1 from each one sold will be donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign.
If you’re looking for a warm, reddish hue for fall, look no further then Amy Adams’ perfect shade. Instead of opting for a deep, dark auburn, the beautiful Ms. Adams has a beautifully, almost golden, cinnamon brown color that highlights her face amazingly. Because of the peach undertones in her skin, a shade that was a darker auburn or just more red would completely wash out her face and leave her looking ruddy. If you’re considering a reddish-tone like this one for fall, make sure you think through to how warm (more golden) or cool (more ash brown) you want the color to be.
