loreal hip jelly balm.jpgThe L’Oreal HiP line of products are all very highly pigmented, rich colors (HIP does stand for high intensity pigments, after all), but the Jelly Balms are the opposite. They give a pretty sheer wash of color while adding fabulous moisture to a very delicate, easily dried out area of the face: the lips!

We all love a good lip conditioner, so one that also gives our lips a hint of color is a major plus. There’s no need for a mirror with these either, and with our on-the-go lifestyles, we couldn’t ask for anything more. Well… maybe that L’Oreal would add an SPF to it— then it would be perfect!  $9,

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,

We happen to think that a GWP (gift with purchase) makes any shopping experience feel so much better. Not only do you end up with your own beauty picks, but you get to sample products you may not have purchased before, and in most cases, end up finding some new favorites!

If you agree, you’ll love this news: For a limited time, with a $100 purchase, is offering a set of samples and full-size products in a beautiful, structured, woven case designed by Rachel Roy.


Take a look at what you will find in this limited-edition case:

“I was inspired by the modern woman, who is equal parts feminine and strong,” said Roy. “I paired a solid and sophisticated black exterior with a softer champagne satin interior in an effort to re-create this balance. I found this to be an extremely organic collaboration, as both and I design for the woman who, despite being on-the-go, remains ever so chic.”
