New Release: narciso rodriguez for her l'absolu


It was impossible not to fall in love with narciso rodiguez's latest fragrance; for her l'absolu .  Released earlier this month, it is a sexy relaunch of the 2003's For Her, and I'm obsessed with everything about it.

Inspired by Chinese snuff bottles, the bottle is painted from the inside with one of the brand's first signature colors; deep aubergine, with soft pink lettering across the front.  It has an eye catching uniqueness that sets it apart from others on my vanity and I can't stop admiring it. 

Designed to capture a more powerful intensity without being overpowering, the scent celebrates a woman's strength and her vulnerability with logic and beauty in an addictive composition that's both timeless and timely.
Composed of notes like absolute of Jasmin, a voluptuous floral transforms the signature heart of music in an intoxicating olfactive composition.  Soft amber notes and smooth woodsy notes of sandalwood and patchouli add a rich depth.
It's an addictive, mature scent that exudes sophistication.  While I have worn it to the office, it's ideal for date nights or luxurious evenings out.  It lingers on the skin and remains just evident enough to make you crave more.  Nothing completes a look better then a little mystery and allure.

I think the die down is my favorite part because it falls into a sweet vanilla.  And I loved that even after a shower, I could still detect light traces of it.  Ultimately, such a gorgeous scent and if I didn't already own it, I'd be adding it to my Christmas list.    

$123.00 3.3 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray
$96.00 1.6 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray
Fine retail stores nationwide

Holiday Gift Guide for the Beauty Addict

Tis' the season!  The holidays are will be here before you know it, and this year I'm doing my best to get a jump on my shopping.. (kind of).  But none the less, I've put together a list of industry favorites sure to satisfy the beauty addicts on your list this year!

Airplus Ball- of- Foot gel forefoot cushions
Retail: $5.49

Ball-of-Foot Cushions are great stocking stuffers that any heel lovin gal will appreciate.  They're made with Invisigel to provide superior shock absorption, long-lasting comfort, and relief of foot pain. The nice part about them is the clear colored gel makes it easy for your to wear them with open-toed pumps or a sexy pair of strappies without anyone noticing.  Perfect for day to day wear around the office and straight into happy hour.. without even blinking!

 Carmex Limited Edition 
Retail: $1.59- $4.29

These fantabulous babies are only available while supplies last, so I highly recommend you get on this!  Carmex  (my all time favorite lippie), has released a limited edition duo including its Original balm along with a brand new flavor; Winter Mint.  It smells as good as it sounds and is super festive for the holidays!  The special BOGO offer is a great way to stock up for the season, and try out the brand's best seller.  Also, the brand is always sharing special offers  

Z Palette
Retail: $20.00 (Large)

Every makeup hoarder knows storage is always an issue.  There's nothing like fishing around in your organizer for that bronzer that you KNOW was in there yesterday.. wasn't it?  Enter Z Palette.  This eco-friendly, card board buddy lets you store as many eye shadows, bronzers, blushers etc. as your little heart desires, all in one place.  Using the de-potting technique to pop your makeup out of its original compact, you then attach a magnet to its bottom and place it into the Z Palette.  This is a superb gift idea for the makeup junkie looking to save space, and awesome for those who travel. Each palette comes equipped with metal stickers and are available in a slew of sassy shades.                 

Earth Kiss Pore Cleanse

We all have someone on our list that deserves a little pampering and healthy R&R.  I learned about Earth Kiss at the recent SHE's Fit event, and I've been addicted ever since.  Earth Kiss contains 6 face masks for a range of skin types, all energized with 85 plant micronutrients found in Himalayan Shilajit.  The Detox Mud  made my skin feel so clean and refreshed, and the .59 oz. packet goes a long way.  They're super affordable and serve as an easy, effective at home spa treatment.  So grab one of each and give all your besties the gift of de-stressing after the holidays!

  lauren b. Beauty Nail & Cuticle Balm
Retail: $30.00 
lauren b.'s Nail & Cuticle Balm is a definite must have for the nail addict on your list.  This luxe, rich hydrator uses amino acid complex and biotin to restore parched, straggly cuticles to their prime.  Made with sweet almond oil and mango it smells absolutely delicious!  It comes in a convenient click pen and is perfect for the girl on the go.  She can toss it in her purse and dab it on whenever she needs.  EZ as 1-2-3!
