We’ve tried a lot of lip products, and let’s be honest: as product junkies we rarely have complaints! Senna Cosmetics Lip Lacquers are no exception…we’re absolutely in love with them.

The formula is lightweight so it feels like a dream on our lips, while still allowing for big color payoff. It’s also surprisingly long wearing (lasted us an entire day running around during Fashion Week!), which means less time re-applying and more time looking fab.

Our only gripe is that we wish it were a bit easier to get product on the wand….but only because we love it so much and want tons of it on our lips!

Lip Lacquer is available in Sheer, Cream, Sparkling, and Pearl Glow formulas in a wide range of shades, each equally as covet-worthy. Try Pearl Glow in Sunkiss, a peachy rose new for Spring, and our current fave.

Beauty addicts rejoice: CHANEL’S new Rouge Coco Hydrating Lip Colours inspired by the legendary ‘Coco’ Chanel have arrived! After taming our excitement, we ran into trouble deciding on a shade. We narrowed it down to Camelia (a deep rose), Legende (reddish-brown), and Paris (a sexy deep red), but finally ended with Paris. As was expected, the color glides on like a silk nightie and left our lips soft and luscious. ‘Coco’ would be proud.

CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour is available online at Neiman Marcus. $30


Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer has taken the market by storm. The multi-tasking primer neutralizes eyelid tone, provides a smooth canvas for color, and keeps shadow vibrant all day. The added benefit of hydrolized hybiscus extract keeps eyes looking young by warding off fine lines. We tried it under shadow during the 12 hours days we’ve been keeping at Fashion Week, and it seriously gives a certain purple-bottled potion a run for it’s money.

Everyone loves a multi-tasking beauty product, especially as we start to age. Who has time for millions of products, or an hour-long bedtime routine? A serum here, line filler there, it’s enough to make your head spin.

Enter Stila’s new Yumberry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain.yumberrycrush.jpg

Yumberry Crush is a sheer, mid-tone pink hue that boosts your pout with a hint of natural color, while at the same time boasts the anti-aging benefits of yumberry. 

You’re probably wondering…Yum-WHAT? Yumberry is an antioxidant superfruit from China, said to be FIFTY times stronger than vitamin E, and twenty times stronger than vitamin C. Research also shows that Yumberry may help slow the break down of collagen, therefore slowing premature aging.The gorgeous pearlized pink shade comes in Stila’s trademark travel-friendly lip pen, and can be worn as a sheer cheek color or a “just bit my lips” stain

A pretty pout that also helps fight fine lines? Sign us up.

$24 at Sephora.








We’ve all been there: alarm blaring WAY before we’ve completely slept off last night’s cocktails with the girls. A shower and coffee may help wake us up, but wait a minute - what’s going to help wake this tired skin?! 

We say: if you can’t beat it, fake it. You may not feel anywhere near a million bucks, but follow these tips and you’ll look it in no time…five minutes to be exact.

1. Give skin a double boost by smoothing on a  primer that hydrates and brightens, Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow primer.
P254900_hero.jpgThe primer hydrates and smooths skin while light reflective crushed pearl pigments brighten skin and diffuse light to fake a radiance. Time: 1 minute.

2. Apply a sheer to medium coverage tinted moisturizer to mask imperfections and even out skin tone. Depending on the amount of coverage you’d like, use fingers for more control and coverage, or a dampened sponge for a more sheer finish.
P49000_hero.jpg Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer has just enough pigment while still being lightweight and invisible. Added bonus? SPF to protect skin from harmful rays. Time: 1 minute.

3. Any problem areas are easily covered with a creamy concealer like Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.
P109931_hero.jpgUse a small concealer brush to dot onto problem areas with precision, then use your ring finger to tap into skin and diffuse, for the most natural coverage. Time: 1 minute.

4. We’ve been trained to be afraid of powders to set our makeup, for fear of looking unnaturally matte or cakey. The new HD powders are foolproof, and give skin a soft-focus look. Makeup For Ever Microfinish contains silica powder, which helps to soften the appearance of imperfections.
P210400_hero.jpgSprinkle a small amount into cap, swirl powder brush, tap off excess, and lightly dust over contours of the face. A little goes a long way. Time: 1 minute.

5. Lastly, here’s an insider tip to a fresh, no makeup look: Spritz skin with a light facial spray to take down the powder, set, and give an added dose of hydration. Shu Uemura Depsea Facial Water Mist contains over 60 minerals to enhance moisture.

Total time elapsed: 5 minutes, which leaves you time to stop for that double latte!
