THE ART OF BEAUTY

Gucci Guilty

Gucci’s golden, glass-andmetal bottle is like a piece of perfumed treasure. The scent is fruity and floral, with a rich amber base and notes of citrus, black pepper and patchouli.

Diptyque Hourglass Diffuser

Stila Masterpiece Series

This beautiful “book” includes three artistinspired eye and cheek palettes — The Minimalist, The Impressionist, and The Modernist. Each “volume” contains three eye shadow shades and one cheek stain. The set also includes easy-to-use makeup tips from Sarah Lucero, Stila’s Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry.

Soap & Paper Factory Solid Perfume Solid perfumes are the best when it comes to easy transportation of scent (especially if you travel a lot), and S&P has a wealth of fragrances to choose from. We love this Balsam Fig tin, with its green, woodsy color tone and cool illusion of texture.

We’ll always be candle lovers (in part, because of how pretty they are), but a recent near-miss flame fiasco has me turning to diffusers as of late. So I was thrilled when I found Diptyque’s new hourglass-shaped scent dispensers, which used no heat or battery-power— you just turn the gorgeous glass over when needed, and your favorite Diptyque scent is slowly released.

Lip Shit Lip Balm

Just because Blue-Q’s balm is a bit low brow doesn’t mean the packaging isn’t artistic. The designs are wonderfully cheeky, and the straightforward nature of these potent lip soothers make them awesome conversation starters. “Excuse me, would you like some Lip Shit?”

Anna Sui Lipstick

Anna Sui’s cosmetics are as artfully designed as her clothes. Highly pigmented and super smooth, this rich red glides on easily and looks as lovely as the flower that tops the product’s black metal tube.
