Holiday palettes are one of my favorite wintertime indulgences. All of your necessities packed neatly into a little box!

One of the best new beauty brands to hit the counters is from none other than Estee Lauder’s granddaughter, Aerin Lauder. As Aerin often says, she’s been in the beauty business since she was born, so it was natural that she’d launch her own line! I had a chance to preview Aerin Effortless Beauty’s new holiday […]

Lush Emotional Brilliance
