Here’s your chance to get a larger glimpse of the MAC & Hello Kitty collaboration that hits stores next February.  I think the engraved Hello Kitty into the lipsticks is a nice touch.  The colors themselves don’t quite excite me… we’ll have to see how everything swatches.  Am I the only one who preferred the regular quads with the clear lids over the new trio/quartet packaging (as seen in Heatherette and the upcoming Dame Edna, and now HK)?

Kiehl’s Launches New Balm #1 Scents

I love me a good lip balm, you know?  I feel like I’m treating myself in a way, just because the scents can be deliciously sweet and comforting or fun and tingly.  Kiehl’s has one of my favorite lip products (Balm #1), and they just launched three more scents:  Vanilla, Mango, and Coconut.  They also make perfect stocking stuffers (hint, hint!) at just $8.50 for each 0.5 oz tube.

Available: December 2008 at all Kiehl’s Since 1851 stores and Kiehls.com.

Bond No. 9 Launches Boca Raton at Saks Fifth Avenue

Bond No. 9 recently launched Boca Raton, which is a scent described as “a seductively feminine spicy-fruity floral composed of lily of the valley, black currant, gardenia, and freesia.”  Top notes are Lily of the Valley and Black Currant; heart is Gardenia, Freesia, and Hedione; and the base notes are Amber, Cedarwood, Cardamom, and Musk.

Bond No. 9 Saks Boca is available in two different versions of the Bond No. 9 slender superstar flacon, each of them featuring our circular centerpiece logo as a key design element. On one bottle, the surface is studded with nearly 1,200 Swarovski crystal stones, accented with bright blue ($500). The other bottle, in pure white, features 520 bright blue and crystal stones ($325.00).  Sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue in Boca Raton.

There is just something about Bond No. 9’s scents and packaging that makes me long for a full-sized flacon myself.  I mean, they even call it a flacon.  It just sounds so classy and luxe and well… nothing like I have!  I know most of us are tightening are budgets, but for those that aren’t… indulge in Bond No. 9 😉
