Makeup palettes are often a waste of money because you end up using one shade more often than the others. But we guarantee you’ll be happy with everything the glominerals gloLip Maven Kit has to offer. Not only does it include three universally flattering lip shades — “rupture,” a sultry burgundy; “beloved,” a rosy pink; and “darling,” a shimmery peach — but it also contains gloLip primer for filling in fine lines and gloHigh shine glaze for adding gloss on its own or over one of the colors. Plus, you can mix the versatile colors to create your own signature shade. So get ready to pucker up for Valentine’s Day. [$32, gloskincare]

If we walk into a drugstore and see just one more heart-shaped box of chintzy chocolates, we’ll go on a hunger strike. A much classier V-Day prize? A gift basket from L’Age de The, which includes three specialty romantic blends of luxury tea and a selection of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla macarons baked by renowned pastry chef Damien Herrgott. Scrumptious. [$22, L'Age de The] Keep reading »

La Garçonne is one of our obsessions, but rarely do we buy anything because we simply can’t afford labels like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Helmut Lang. Fortunately, the folks at La Garçonne have taken pity on us by putting a major crop of items on sale. While we still can’t rationalize spending $1,000-plus on this Tsumori Chisato Reversible Coat, we found a ton of stuff for less than $200. This way we can satisfy our designer jones, but won’t go broke in the process. So what if we have to eat a peanut butter sandwich for lunch everyday for a week to make up for it? After the jump, find our favorite sale items from La Garçonne. Keep reading »

But leave it to scientists to figure out how to dupe everyone into thinking Mother Nature blessed you with voluminous strands. Living Proof’s smarty-pants team developed a new material that gives hair tons of oomph without making it brittle the way hairspray does. Those lifeless locks should be extinct in no time.

OK, so it’s a little pricey for a tie, but pretty cool once you take a closer look. No, ladies and gentlemen, that tie is not made of mere fabric; it’s actually a whole lot of recycled cassette tape.This strikes us as the perfect gift for that music lover who “has everything” because, let’s face it, there’s a good chance he does not in fact have this. [Sonic Fabric Neck Tie, $120] Keep reading »

For parents, part of the joy of Christmas is knowing your children will behave in the days leading up to Santa’s arrival. But when you grow up, the scary possibility of finding coal in your stocking instead of presents has been fairly nonexistent, until now: Lush Cosmetics decided to bring back the sooty gift this season.

It will soften the skin while also providing a great Christmas morning prank. Actually, it could be the most perfect gift for a frenemy. Keep reading »
