Ah Spring. Longer days, warm weather…and an excuse to stock up on a slew of new nail colors. This season is all about nude and taupe nails. While we’re definitely on team nude and agree they’re great for a more natural look — you’ve gotta mix it up with bolder, brighter hues. Right? Thank goodness oranges, purples and even metallics are hot this season too.

Spoil your nails with this season’s must-have shades:

1. Butter London, Jelly, $14 2. Deborah Lippmann, I’m Not Innocent, $16 3. RGB, Toast $14  4. OPI Hot & Spicy, $7.65  5. Rescue Beauty, Look Rich, Be Cheap, $18 6. Essie Lilacism, $8

astrogirl.jpgWhat’s your sign? No, seriously, what’s your sign? It might help when picking out one of Napoleon Perdis’ new Astro Girl Eye Shadow Quads. The Australian make up artist references astrology in his new collection of eye shadow quads based off the zodiac signs Fire, Earth, Air, Water. We’re total astrology buffs so we couldn’t resist giving this new product a chance — fire to be exact. Even though we don’t consider ourselves characteristic Leos, this ‘take charge’ (their words not ours) palette worked wonders. The iridescent copper, gold, pink and deep purple compliment each other very well. The firey tones blend together smoothly and boast just the right amount of shimmer.

We’re perpetually on the hunt for the perfect highlighter and never seem to find it— this little highlighter is too glittery, this little highlighter is too greasy, and this little highlighter has us streaking all the way home. What’s a girl to do?

Enter Vapour Organic Beauty— their new Halo Body Spotlight imparts a luminous, lit-from-within glow that looks natural, and more importantly, doesn’t leave glitter bomb fallout on our cheeks. It’s the perfect shimmer to counteract dull, lifeless winter skin, and can be used on the face, shoulders, arms, décolletage.. the possibilities are endless.
Halo also delivers potent anti-oxidants into the skin to heal and protect it against environmental elements and pollutants.  It’s made with the anti-inflammatory Frankincense, moisturizing Lotus Flower and Tulsi, an ancient healing herb, and is 70% organic.

Added bonus? The packaging is so pretty: a steel blue-gray shimmer… and it smells awesome too! Sort of a light, fruity smell that makes us want to bite it…but we won’t. ;)

Halo comes in one universal shade, Moonlight, suitable for all ages and skin tones.


There’s nothing more rewarding than giving back to others. And If you can look and smell good while doing it…all the better! Inspired by M.A.C.’s amazing VIVA GLAM collection to support those affected by AIDS, we’ve compiled a list of products that’ll prep you for spring, and keep on giving….
