stila mandarin mist.jpgWrap yourself in the sweet scents of stila’s delightful new fragrance Mandarin Mist. This light, alluring, and sweet citrus fragrance is defined by notes of mimosa and yuzu fruit - the perfect blend for any day.

Stila Mandarin Mist is a fresh citrus scent with light flowery notes so refreshing it keeps our spirits up in the cold, gloomy weather!  We love this fragrance because it’s not too overpowering, yet lasts all day. We have recieved so many compliments wearing it that it has become a more regularly worn scent. 1oz. $36,

It’s not only the leaves that change with the season, beauty evolves into a deeper hued daily ritual with the addition of spicier scents, shades and angles. Soft, shiny hair is loosened and worn low with a bend, caressing cheeks and shoulders. Trends this year mimic those of the ’80s with a splash of ’40s femme. Beauty is sophisticated and luxurious. Some easy additions to pull off this year’s Fall-Winter transition include:

Black Orchid by Tom Ford

This decadent scent wafts with sex, smoke, spice and sweetness which are synonymous with the design of Tom Ford. My immediate reaction was to keep smelling my wrist after the initial spray. It’s one of those rare scents you occasionally encounter in passing and irresistibly are drawn to. The perfect fragrance to warm up the atmosphere during a chilly day or night.

Tarte Eye Couture Day-To-Night Eye Palette

Black as night shadow has been adorning the lids of celebrities and transforming their summer shades into a more mysterious vamp. Classic examples include Anne Hathaway and the ever so sunny Katherine Heigl. Their dramatic eyes are not as easy as just a brush of darkness. Quality of texture and pigment are key to achieving a smooth application of drama and the deep shades are never allowed to venture too far past the crease. This palette includes one of the best brushes I’ve seen in a ready made collection. This combo of smoky midnights and sheer cool pale shades are ideal for highlighting your more innocent side during the day and for releasing the vixen as evening falls!

Hot Tools Professional Spring 1 inch Curling Iron

2676-A8375.jpg Big beautiful curls are all the rage in this season’s sophisticated femme styles. Keep your roots with minimal volume while creating a cascading brushed curl around face and throughout hair’s length. Best way to achieve this kind of girly glam is to use a 1 inch curling iron around the sides and back of head twisting hair loosely around iron in both directions.

HairDo by Ken Paves

318839.jpg But what if you are still sporting last season’s bob? Have no worry, HairDo is quite possibly one of the easiest ways to add on hair. Yes, in one piece, and I cannot tell you how real it looks! Watch the video before you say nay, you will not believe the simplicity!

Biore Daily Recharging Enliven Eye Cooling Gel

200.JPG With chillier temperatures, we welcome dry heat into our homes which causes us to wake up puffy eyed and with dry skin and hair. A partial remedy for this beauty blunder is to invest in a humidifier or leave a pot of water near your heating device (do not leave it near electric heat). But it’s not a sure fix and we need an added boost to help. This gel works gently and effectively at combating the under eye bag, and it feels absolutely invigorating.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Crème Serum Overnight Repair Formula

103_large.jpgIf frizz and dryness are a part of your wardrobe this season, choose an overnight hair repair like John Frieda’s. Apply it to dry hair at night and wake up to smoother healthier hair in the morning. And don’t worry- it doesn’t leave residue on your pillowcase!

Sephora by OPI in Caffeine Fix

1111582_sw.jpg If you can grow your nails long and still function in your daily tasks, so be it, ladies. Long, rounded and violet is this season’s nail trend. A grape-inspired polish is definitely making a statement- so keep them shiny, on the deeper side and chip-free. My favorite long wearing shade is from Sephora by OPI. The rich coffee-inspired shade is perfectly plum.

Urban Decay Lipstick in Trainwreck and Sellout

P219002_hero.jpg Moist, matte shades are painting this season’s lips. The hottest shades include cranberry, fire- inspired and deep earth brown. Urban Decay lipsticks in Trainwreck and Sellout are a must-have for all intense purposes! Color lasts, stays creamy and within its defined lines.

Kerastase Specifique Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo Oily Roots-Sensitised Lengths

kerast.jpgHands down, the hottest new product. If you color or highlight your hair, you know you’re not supposed to wash it daily because the color fades and the ends get dry. If you skip a day, your roots become a greasy separating fortress of darkness that nobody, including yourself, wants to touch. I’ve tried it and this shampoo works at getting you that second day and imparts a superior shine with all of its specified balancing. (available 11/10)

No Frizz by Living Proof

LP_Group_Light.jpgIt seems enough of us have cried to the hair gods to eliminate our frizz and static! These godly beings or more suitably named scientists have created the most advanced product to control our strands in 30 years. Living Proof is a weightless, PolyfluoroEster material that creates a surface on hairs that eliminates water absorption, repels dirt and oil, creates a bright shine, eliminates any sort of frizz and smoothes out the rough edges that cause coarseness and electric snaps. It is beyond amazing!
