If we ever have to choose a fragrance that makes us feel feminine and glamorous at the same time, it will be Givenchy Very Irresistible. With notes of roses including Centifolia Rose, Peony Rose and Fantasia Rose, we couldn’t help but feel love at first smell when we were introduced to this amazing fragrance. It also has a spicy quality that perfectly complements the floral notes, making this a very modern, more grown-up floral.

from $19,

smashbox cream eyeliner image.jpgSmashbox Cream Eye Liner can easily go to the top of our “products we love” list! While it does seem a bit different to use a liner that isn’t in a pencil form, this liner is definitely worth a try.

For starters, this doesn’t tug like a pencil, flake like a powder or run like a liquid, and will easily outlast your liquid and pencil liners. This award-winning, innovative cream formula provides customizable eye definition, and can even be worked into a contouring shade (when used with the appropriate brush) to add drama to the eyes for an amazing look that will keep you looking fabulous all day.

PlantLove Eye Liner glides on so smoothly we were amazed this was a pencil liner. It blended well, lasted all day and didn’t smudge. It comes in six amazing shades, but we find ourselves loving (other than Black and Dark Brown) Bronze and Midnight Blue. $16,

PlantLove Eye Shadows are highly pigmented and long-wearing. We love the variety of colors and blendable shades. It’s unbelievable that these are “green” products, but we’re convinced they’re fabulous! $20,



So, if you’re looking to add more natural products to add to your makeup bag, we think you should check out PlantLove!

body shop satsuma body butter.jpgWhen it comes to intensly moisturizing our skin, we know there is nothing better than The Body Shop’s Body Butter collection. We love it in Satsuma because citrus is so uplifting and refreshing. This sweet-smelling variation leaves our skin feeling smooth and looking great. The thick and rich formula easily melts in our hands when we feel the need to reapply, and after a shower is a fabulous luxury that we know didn’t cost a fortune. 1.7oz, $10, 6.9oz, $20 at

YSL-gloss-pur-black.jpg“Mysterious, sensual, luminous… A cosmetic jewel that turns lips into a spectacular fashion statement.From plum to ebony, it dresses lips in an infinite range of shades, depending on how it is applied - feather light or rich and bold. Transparent yet intense, it plays on the depths of black and the pure shine of a sparkle-free formula. For fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, black is THE color. And as a make-up artist, lips are THE focus.”

Besides being the must-have make up item for Fall 2008, Gloss Pur Black is a preview of a new formula which will launch in Spring 2009, in 6 radiant shades, full of pure color and high shine.

The new dark lip craze is in full swing now that YSL has released their new gloss. We are so excited to be able to dress up our dark pouts, and can only imagine the beautiful intensity this will give our typical burgundy and cranberry lips this season!

YSL GLOSS PUR Black Limited Edition, available online now, for only $28,
