Philosophy’s Haunted House ($30.00) is a three-piece set of three perfectly fall scents: Pumpkin Spice, Black Licorice, and Caramel Apple. I love, love, LOVE Philosophy’s shower gels (which also double as a shampoo and bubble bath). I prefer to use them as shower gels personally, but they definitely work well as a bubble bath, too! My favorite scent was Pumpkin Spice, because nothing reminds me of the descent into fall like pumpkin pie. (Funny enough, I just polished off a Pumpkin Spice Latte!) Caramel Apple is also a nice scent that’s sweet without being cloying or overwhelming. Like most shower gels, these scents won’t pervade the rest of your day. They’re fun to enjoy in the shower and fade away afterwards. If you love the scent, it’s a good idea to layer it with a body cream or lotion. Black Licorice isn’t my personal favorite scent (I can’t stand licorice, actually!), but it really does smell just like the candy–so if you’re into it, you’ll adore it. I love Philosophy’s shower gel formula because they lather up with little product and smell just like they’re named. These didn’t disappoint!

MAC Cosmetics Dame Edna Available December 26th, 2008
“Hello possums!” Dame Edna Everage is in the house! With her zesty zingers, over-the-top appearance – lilac hair (which she claims is natural), bedazzled specs, fanciful frocks – there’s nothing like a Dame! The alter ego of brilliantly wicked Aussie comedian, Barrie Humphries, and the resident muse for our post-holiday make up collection, Dame Edna thinks of herself as “probably the most popular and gifted woman in the world today: housewife, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, talk-show host, swami, children’s book illustrator, spin doctor, megastar and icon.” With packaging as mirthful and minx-like as the Legend herself, the Dame Collection of heavy-on-the-lilac Lipstick/Lipglass, Eye Shadow, Highlight Powder and Nail Lacquers is in a class by itself!
Ice the competition. The temperature drops, predictability plummets, but a new beauty barometer sets the tone with light snowflake lips, twinkle shimmer shades with opalescent pearl. Cool neutral eyes suddenly combust, then go up in smoke, with new Penultimate Eye Liner for the deepest velvet black. New 41 Lash with criss-cross design for a luxe, longer look. Two Reflects Glitter for a limited time, a hot new cool. Just chill.
