Another season of NYFW has come to close. Once again it was the height of stylish success, and beauty products definitely played a significant role in the process. Here’s a roundup of some of our faves that helped the designers’ models go the distance. The best part? These are items you can easily get a hold of yourself, so you can be catwalk chic during any week.

Dashing Diva ColorFX Appliqués: This season the Dashing Diva team, led by celebrity manicurist Pattie Yankee, offered designers a sneak peak at its latest collection, ColorFX, the perfect manicure for models backstage – and now, beauties in the Big Apple. These new nail color appliqués offer glam gone gentle by providing the long-wear, no-smudge application benefits of a gel polish with a quick, safe acetone-free removal. ColorFX appliqués are applied easily, require no dry time and come in 60 colors. Services start at $40 and up and are available at professional salons and Dashing Diva locations throughout the country.

GG Gatsby’s Over-The-Top™ Root Lift Spray: Stylish strands that rise and shine? Count us in.
This new product offers tresses 40% more volume and 50% more strength while taming unfashionable fly-aways. Over-The-Top™ Root Lift Spray incorporates an innovative lifting technology, Oleo-VOLUME & STRENGTH™, with ingredients such as sweet almond, soy and rice protein to boost volume and brilliance as it helps repair weakened hair. Panthenol Vitamin Complex is also added to increase luster and moisturize your mane. Priced at $17.99, this product is available for purchase at

Supersmile Quikee: Nothing makes catwalk couture shine brighter than a pearly white smile. That’s where this on-the-go goody definitely comes in handy. Supersmile Quikee is the anytime, anywhere, no brush/no rinse whitening tooth polish that quickly, conveniently and effectively gets rid of stains caused by coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco all while it freshens your breath. The new Quikee in Icy Mint is formulated with CALPROX(r), Supersmile’s proprietary form of calcium peroxide, which combats plaque and stains without dehydrating teeth, causing sensitivity, or abrasion to tooth enamel. Priced at $18.00, this product is available for purchase at
