October’s Best Bets bring all treats, absolutely no tricks here.


Coco Chanel’s very favorite flower, the iconic camellia, is the inspiration for Chanel’s limited edition Camellia Lip Palette. Four versatile cream lipstick shades look great on the lips, but yes, somehow, even better in the pan. Our verdict? Buy one to use and one to collect!


MAC’s Limited Edition collaboration with Alexander McQueen is so very secretive, we had a difficult time finding out any information at all. So, what we do know? MAC resource Specktra says that we can expect three new eyeshadows, including Nile, a Soft royal blue with white pearl luster, two lipstick shades, two lipglass, three kohl power liners, three paint pots and…are you ready? A re-release of the cult-favorite New Vegas Mineralize Skin Finish, a warm vanilla gold and bronze pearl highlighter. The entire collection will be in stores and available on on October 4.


Too Faced gives us gals a great alternative to plastic surgery with their new Fantastic Plastic Set. A steal at under $40, it includes Lash Injection, a plumping mascara that boosts volume, Wrinkle Injection to fill in fine line and the pucker boosting Lip Injection. And the very best part? No appointment necessary!


In the past, Hollywood fashion stylists Estee Stanley and Cristina Ehrlich have worked with stars like Eva Mendez, Penelope Cruz and Jessica Biel. But their latest project is even more fabulous… they’ve designed and launched a new clothing line dubbed miss davenporte. LORAC founder Carol Shaw collaborated with the design duo to create the Showstopper Palette, a limited edition collection of four versatile eye shadows and one complementary blush that pairs perfectly with the clothing line.


TRUE’s oh-so-cleverly named Yin & Yang Dual Eye Liner has a jet black kohl on one end to line the eye and a white highlighter on the other, perfect for inner eye enhancement. We love that a sharpener is included in the package and the formula itself is long lasting and water resistant.
