Hot Lipsticks We Love

“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”
― Elizabeth Taylor

The drink part is of course optional, but Liz got it right in saying that lipstick is an important step in pulling yourself, or your look, together!  It takes a confident woman to rock a bright lip color, but these super flattering and wearable shades make it easy.  Try a colorful lip this spring, it’s an easy way to complete your outfit and you can keep the rest of your face clean and simple.

Scarlett Johannson is the face of Dolce & Gabbana makeup and a notorious fan of red lipstick, calling it “glamour in a tube.” If you want to capture the sexy star’s red lip look, try this D & G’s Scarlett or Dahlia shades.

Beauty in Pretty Packaging

Admit it…have you ever purchased a product based on its packaging? No need to raise your hand on this one. Brands KNOW how quick we are to judge a book by its cover, which is why they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on designing beautiful packaging just to get us to spend our pretty pennies. Guess what though? It usually works! I’ve always been a sucker for gorgeous packaging when it comes to cosmetics. Check out some of my favorites of this season.

Because of my allergies, I’m not a girl who can wear a ton of fragrances, but the first time I saw the Jimmy Choo Fragrance Collection for Women ($70, on macys.com), I just had to have it. The bottle looks like a piece of art, right? Considering this is Jimmy’s first parfum, it’s safe to say he knocked it out of the park. This fragrance combines citrusy-notes with sweet notes, and the end result is a luxurious fragrance for beauties who love to smell heavenly. Oh, and yes…the bottle is an absolute masterpiece.
