Willow Eau de Parfum

An enticing fragrance composed around Osmanthus blossoms. The wearer will be transported to a vintage convertible on a country road. Just imagine, worn leather seats and the gentle hum of the engine as warm summer air envelopes the body. This hypnotic essence introduces refreshing top notes of lemon, hints of gardenia and a kiss of sheer Jasmine. Base notes of tea and bergamot give Willow an intoxicating warmth. This delicate and fresh scent is uniquely seductive.

Cappuccino Nail Lacquer by Kure Bazaar: The Top 23 Nail Polishes That Are 5-Free

Chemicals plastered to your nails for a week? Um, no thanks. Until fairly recently, our digits were often subjected to five sketchy—and outright toxic—ingredients every time we got a mani-pedi. We’re talking formaldehyde (yes, the stuff they use to preserve dead bodies), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor, which can do a bunch of nasty things to your body, from triggering allergies to disrupting your endocrine system. If you’ve been on the hunt for formaldehyde-free nail polish, you’re not alone.

To the rescue is a group of trailblazing, wellness-savvy lines like Priti and Obsessive Cumpulsive Cosmetics who are helping change the nail game big time. Now, even more manicure companies are jumping on the 5-free bandwagon—and they don’t skimp on quality, color, or creativity, either.

With so many healthier mani options on the market, does that mean chemical-heavy formulas will soon be a thing of the past? We have our (well-polished) fingers crossed.

Rosa Greta Eau de Parfum by Eau d'Italie: Garbo Smells! Rosa Greta Giveaway

Garbo.  Greta Garbo.  Is there anyone in the Universe who doesn’t at least know The Name?  I did a quick poll of friends across gender and generation lines and found one thing in common:  they all know The Name.  Most of them have not seen any of her films and they couldn’t really tell you anything about her – not the era of her stardom or even if she’s still alive (several of my younger pollsters thought she might still be, which would be a near Vulcan-like feat, considering she was born in 1905) – what every one of the 8 people I polled agreed with, Garbo is synonymous with Old Hollywood Glamour.

Her love life was always a mystery – depending upon the source(s) she was  possibly bisexual and possibly polyamorous.  What we do know is, she was intensely private – and that, in and of itself, has a glamour all its own, especially if you are beautiful, wealthy and very, very famous.  Story tells it that in 1938 Miss Garbo left Munich for Ravello on the Amalfi Coast, to be with the noted symphony conductor Leopold Stokowski in preparation for their anticipated marriage – the marriage never happened but you can imagine that the 1938 versions of TMZ and Twitter went bonkers over the story (the photo accompanying the story makes her look like she’s just faced a firing squad but it’s probably just a really old microfiche).  Just imagine, the beauty of the Amalfi Coast, with its wild roses and lemon groves, one of the most beautiful and most famous women in existence, in a tryst with a musician who was famous in his own right.  The Stuff of Legend.

I’ve only been to the Amalfi Coast once, decades ago,  – but I shall remember it forever.  For a young woman, traveling with a lover, it is a sublime journey full of sunlight, wine, the intoxicating smells of the countryside and the sea…the cliffs, towns and villages that looked as if they’d stayed the same since Garbo’s time – and we were not Garbo & Stokowski.  I can only imagine their experience went to Eleven!

In Rosa Greta Eau d’Italie has  captured the essence of the Amalfi Coast in springtime, full of those wild roses and lemon groves and sunlight. Every spritz is a burst of sunshine and sea air, roses, herbs and citrus are carried on the breeze and everything (even the fishmonger at the market stall) is breathtakingly romantic.  I imagine Garbo in boycut trousers and a crisp white shirt, just a hint of Rosa Greta at her pulsepoints, off to the market to get the best wine and the freshest catch for the cook to prepare for that evening’s meal, on the terrace, high above the sea.

I can go on about this because this really is one of my favorite areas in the world but I'd rather give you a chance to try it for yourself. Beautyhabit – my beautiful, wonderful BEAUTYHABIT – sent me 2 samples... AND a FULL BOTTLE of this lovely scent.

I would love to keep it all for ME – but that would be mean.  So!  I am going to do a giveaway for the full bottle and both samples!  Where is your most romantic destination?  Real life or fantasy.  Tell me a little story about it.  I’ll have The Girl (a true romantic) pull 3 names – two will win the sample size and one lucky romantic will receive the beautiful full bottle.  This giveaway is open to all but closes on July 11!

Child Perfume Roll On by Child Perfume: Oooh, Child!

Well!  It’s finally stopped raining – at least for a couple of days – and the garden is losing its mind, with roses budding out ahead of the irises, etc (I think I already yabbered on about that). Hostas going wild, jumping up 5″ in a day! Plants really do prefer rain to hose water – and why not! I couldn’t get out in the garden for a week, it was so cold and wet, so I spent that time sampling Child. I think I was in the throes of Something or Other when it first came out because I remember it showing up at Barneys – but that’s all I remember. Now it’s at Beautyhabit and they were kind enough to send me a little sample bag, so I was able to take some time with it. I didn’t realize Child has a perfume roll-on – I likes it! Something about roll-ons soften a lot of perfumes, bringing them closer in to the skin. Not that Child needs any particular help with that – the notes are the epitome of Soft and Pretty, which you know I love:

Top: Vanilla, Lilac, Faint Magnolia.
Heart: Jasmine, Tuberose, Violet.
Base: Crème Musk, Rose, Mimosa.

Not sure what Crème Musk is but whatever it is, it doesn’t overpower the warm flowers, which is great, and it gives the perfume a nice, solid (but not overwhelming) ‘bottom’. I wore Child Perfume for 3 days in a row and got so many compliments! Interestingly, not one of the compliments was ‘what perfume are you wearing?’ – all of them were ‘wow. you smell GREAT!’. It’s a non-skin scent that succeeds in being a perfect skin scent. To me, Child smells like a place – or, rather, a place in time. Every time I open the rollerball I’m transported back…but I can’t quite pinpoint where it is I am. One minute it’s 1972 and I’m in Love’s Baby Soft, listening to ‘Baby I’ma Want You’ and sighing over the Senior guys. The next I am in 1954, in a kitchen with a pink table and chairs, which is strange because I wasn’t yet born. But there ya go. It’s a cozy, close scent, the roll-on, perfect for wearing (dare I say it) even in an office environment ( assuming you don’t work in an office full of jackbooted Perfume Brownshirts). The vanilla warms up the violet and, oddly enough, tames the tuberose, so you don’t get any one note – the whole thing is shimmering and seamless and makes me feel like I’m wearing a polished cotton shirt, even when I’m wearing some tshirt out of the work drawer and my favorite yoga pants,with the wear hole above the left knee. I prefer the roll-on to the spray.

Limited Edition 15th Anniversary Makeup Collection by Paul & Joe: Paul & Joe Beaute's 15th Anniversary Collection Is For The Ultimate Cat Lover

While some brands are focused on the unicorn trend, this brand is sticking to an animal that you can love IRL. Celebrating their anniversary in the best possible way, Paul & Joe Beaute created a cat-inspired makeup collection. I'm not just talking adorable makeup bags and punny names. I mean full-on cat statued shadows and lipsticks. Trust me when I say that there has never been a more perfect line for the ultimate cat-lover.

If you thought cat face masks and headbands were great, just wait until you see what Paul & Joe Beaute has thought up. The brand launched an entirely feline-filled collection in honor of their 15th anniversary, and it will blow you away. While there are some typical cat cat-eared makeup bags and packaging, it's the products that take this above and beyond.

For starters, there's the adorable little cat-shaped lipstick that features the animal wearing a top hat. And if that's not swoon-worthy enough, theres a set of animal-shaped eye and face color. You can actually rub product off of the colorful cats to use as eyeshadow and blush. To be completely honest, the products are almost too cute to use, but still completely deserve a spot in your makeup bag.

Of course, a collection this great comes at a price. The limited edition set will cost you $85. While that might seem like a lot, you have to consider that you're getting seven products, a makeup bag, and a storage container. All in all, it breaks down to less than $10 an item.

Ready for the best part? You can shop them right meow. (Sorry, I had to.) Like I said before, the collection is limited edition, though. As of Apr. 14, a week after the official launch, the set is still in stock on the Beauty Habit website. I wouldn't wait too much longer to purrrchase — again, had to.

So what are you waiting for? You're not going to find a cuter collection anywhere else, so you might as well stock up while you still can!

Limited Edition 15th Anniversary Makeup Collection by Paul & Joe: The Paul & Joe Anniversary Makeup Collection Is Purrrrfect for Cat Lovers

Let me preface this post by saying I love cats. I love cats the way Oprah loves bread, which we know is a lot. Ever since childhood, I've had quite the strong affinity for felines (they're just so goddamn cute), and over the years, it's just blossomed into this weird-yet-still-totally-healthy-I-SWEAR obsession. Anything cat-inspired — figurines, fashion, hell, even the real thing — I've got to have immediately. Right meow, so to speak.

So when I discovered that Paul & Joe brought out the big guns for its limited-edition 15th-anniversary collection, I nearly jumped — as in, I physically shot out of my swivel desk chair in pure excitement — at the chance to wax poetic about the adorable, cat-themed collection. Luckily, my editor agreed that indeed, I was destined to write this piece, so, here we are. [Ed note: This is true. She has been waiting for a meowment like this.]

The line's ambiguous name, simply "Paul & Joe Anniversary Makeup Collection," gives no mention of the cuteness the collection actually elicits. In full, there's the classic cat lipstick, the Lipstick in Petite Princess, a peachy pink shade made famous in the brand's spring 2012 lineup formulated in the shape of a sweet little kitty; six (!) feline figurine eye shadows — in a wide range of shade options, like a soft pastel pink, icy cool mint, metallic copper, sultry gray, purplish mauve, and a light golden peach — which all also double as cheek tint; and a "paw-sitively adorable" portable case to store in all it while on the go.

Luckily, the collection comes complete with superchic home storage, a millennial pink- and gold-embellished vanity vault, which opens with a slight tug of a golden feline figurine drawer knob. Lastly, there's a cat-eared cloth pouch designed with the same pink-and-gold floral print as the vault for the ultimate #kittycoordination. I plan on using it as a makeshift makeup bag because I'm damn near obsessed.

Suffice it to say, you'll have to pry this sweet little line of cat-themed goods out of my non-manicured paws because, honey, I'm never letting go. Which means if you want your own Paul & Joe Anniversary Makeup Collection, which is $85, you'll have to head over to beautyhabit.com.

Limited Edition 15th Anniversary Makeup Collection by Paul & Joe: The Cat's Out of the Bag About Paul & Joe's Epic Makeup Vault

Paul & Joe is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a ferocious and feline-filled makeup vault. The cult brand recently announced their newest collection which will include its classic cat lipstick, six eye shadows that can also be used as face products, a cute cat-shaped pouch, and a carrying case for the shadows.

This collection is all in the details. The lipstick, for example, is in the shape of a cat wearing a teeny tiny top hat. (Yes, really.) Unsurprisingly, the eye shadows are also in the shape of cats, and come in versatile shades that range from pastel to bronze.

The entire collection is currently available online for $85. For your swooning pleasure, scroll ahead for images of the adorable collection.

If you’re a cat lover, you probably want every single cat thing on the market. And that means that you’re probably familiar with Paul & Joe Beaute‘s adorable offering. The brand has become known for its makeup collections that combine amazing formulas with cute feline packaging. To celebrate its 15th anniversary, it’s only fitting that the brand paid tribute to this with a purrrrfect collection.

The Paul & Joe Beaute 15th Anniversary collection includes some of the brand’s most iconic products, so if you don’t have them already, now is the time to stock up. Highlights include the Face & Eye Color, which are shaped like little three-dimensional cats and the Lipstick in Petite Princesse (203). Fans might remember the adorable lippy from Spring 2012. Not only does it feature sweet kitty cat packaging, but the actual bullet is shaped like a cat.

And you’re going to need some purrrfect containers to store your collection in. That’s why Paul & Joe Beaute has the Face & Eye Color Case and the adorable cat-shaped pouch. As this is an anniversary collection, note that it is a limited edition, so if you want anything, snap up the line up when it launches. The collection will be available from April 7, 2017 at Beautyhabit.com and the line will cost you $85.

Beautyhabit Moves Into M.Fredric’s Westlake Village Store

The online apothecary expands from the screen to physical space with an in-store shop at the retailer stocking brands such as Diptyque, Child Perfumes, Avene skin care and Kosas.

Beautyhabit has taken up residence at M.Fredric’s flagship in Westlake Village, Calif.

The online apothecary now occupies nearly 200 square feet inside the contemporary clothing and accessories store, which is less than a mile from its headquarters. The in-store shop represents a return for Beautyhabit to brick-and-mortar retailing after closing down a boutique about six years ago to focus on growing a digital business.

Bringing Niche Luxury Brands to People in Local Area

“We wanted to bring niche, hard-to-find luxury brands to people living in this area,” said Paula Vazquez, who owns Beautyhabit with her sister Teresa Mitchell. “There is a lot of money here, but people feel they have to get in their cars and go on the freeway to Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills or even the San Fernando Valley to get what they want. They can actually get it here.”

We Stock Over 35 Luxury Cosmetic Brands

Beautyhabit’s selection at M.Fredric spans roughly 200 stockkeeping units from 35 brands, including Christophe Robin, Memo Perfumes, Diptyque, Eau d’Italie, Rodin, Chantecaille, Smith & Cult, Neom Organics, ALTAIA, Comme des Garcons, Cire Trudon, Fragonard, Martial Vivot, Child Perfumes, Kosas, This Works and Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger. Although not all the brands lean green, Beautyhabit zeroed in on natural and organic vendors as well as gift items for the assortment.

“I’ve known Paula for years. She’s very sharp and a really great businesswoman,” said M.Fredric owner Fred Levine. “We believed Beautyhabit would be a nice complement to our apparel, kids clothing and accessories. We certainly wouldn’t want to handle beauty on our own. We had a huge entryway that was filled with mannequins and displays, and we thought, ‘Let’s put product in there.” There was room for it, and it’s worked out well.”

Modern & Industrial Interior

Vazquez described the look of Beautyhabit’s in-store shop as modern and industrial. It contains wood and iron, and contrasting hard and soft materials. Beautyhabit staffs the shop within M.Fredric. Vazquez said the store’s proximity to Beautyhabit offices allows it to keep a close watch on the sales performance of products and quickly respond to consumer demand. “We can swap things in and out all the time until we see what hits,” she noted.

Beautyhabit is the latest concept to diversify the merchandise mix at M.Fredric. Prior to its in-store presentation, the retailer linked with David’s Shoes and Free People on shops-in-shop at various locations. “We think that the future of brick-and-mortar retail is to have almost like mini department stores and fulfill the customers’ needs beyond apparel from people really top-notch in their fields, “ said Levine.

M.Fredric and Beautyhabit are exploring installing Beautyhabit set-ups at additional M.Fredric locations. The retailer has nine company-owned stores in Southern California and two licensed locations in partnership with Hudson Group at LAX and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. Another two licensed locations are opening soon at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas and the Dallas-Fort Worth airport.

Marche de Noel Makeup Collection by Paul & Joe Beaute: Best Irresistible Beauty Holiday Gift Ideas 2016

You’ll definitely want to keep these.

Halloween is over which means Christmas is officially here! Just kidding…we technically still have Thanksgiving to think about, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start researching holiday presents for our family, friends and loved ones. Being the beauty lovers that we are, we got down to business and combed through hundreds of products and sets on all of our favorite sites. In the process, we realized that while it is important to give to others, it’s also important to #treatyoself as well. And sometimes, when you see a particularly amazing product, you just won't be able to let go. With that in mind, here are lots of awesome beauty gifts that we might just keep for ourselves. Better yet, buy one for your BFF, and grab another for you!

Graine de Joie Eau de Parfum by Eau d'Italie: Perfume Review: Graine de Joie by Eau d'Italie 

Notes:  Pomegranate, Red Fruits, Freesia, Praline, Cedarwood, Musk

What a suprise--Graine de Joie is incredibly pretty. A fruity-floral that is beautifully done. It's interesting how the tangy pomegranate seamlessly segues into a very realistic, fresh bouquet of freesia. Freesia is a note that rarely rings true to the flower, but this is about as realalistic of a freesia as I have ever smelled.

Graine de Joie smells like the most amazing shampoo at first. Clean, fresh, bright, just a tad fruity--but not chemical.

As soon as you see "praline" in the notes, you might expect it to go into gourmand territory. But is is never truly gourmand at any point. For the first few hours, you know the praline is there, but it's subtle. It anchors the fragrance and provides some substance, some heft, to it. Praline also prevents the notes from becoming too screechy and sour. The interplay between all of the notes is quite a beautiful balancing act.

At times, it conjures the holidays because the tangy pomegranate could pass for cranberry. Mixed with praline, it reminds me of a warm and cozy holiday party, like when you walk into a home, and the oven has been on for hours, and there is a sweet scent in the air (pies, sweet potatoes...)

Several hours into wear is when the fruit and florals fade significantly. What remains on my skin smells like fruity chocolate, as though I took a red currant truffle and rubbed it into my wrist. At that point it's almost gone from my skin and time to reapply, so if gourmands aren't "your thing," you need not worry as Graine de Joie remains firmly in the fruity-floral category, and it's truly one of the nicest in that genre.

Isn't that a gorgeous bottle?

Picture a chalky, calcified showerhead. The same thing can happen to your own head over time if you don’t nix the hard-water minerals that glom on to lengths. One thing that works? Rinsing with apple cider vinegar, which lowers the pH of the mineral buildup enough to break it apart. But who wants their hair to smell like an egg dye kit?
