Finally a lip plumper that won’t burn your lips off! MAC has the new Plushglass formula and they’ve enriched it with Vitamin E for a plumper that actually soothes your pout.

Summer has done a serious number on the bottom of my feet with all the flip flop wearing and Artemis Woman’s Heel Smoother is literally the BEST thing I have found to get rid of the crustiness. With two heads (one for heels, one for toes) to blast away dead skin and ground in dirt, sorry but it’s there!, you can use it in the shower and come out clean as a daisy. www.artemiswoman.com
We know it’s all about the brow this season and in order to work that you’ve got to have the right shape.

Tarte’s new Some Like it Hot Mini Lip Gloss Set is really just too much fun! All of the ten lipglosses smell and taste like cinnamon and you, yes YOU, get to pick how you want to put your glosses together. They’ve included three little double ended connectors so you can mix and match all you want – everything from sheer apricot to silvery deep mauve. www.tartecosmetics.com
If creamy lips are more your bag than sheer, clear skies are ahead with Benefit’s Weather Girl Palette – inside you’ll find three lip creams in champagne, rose, and nude along with three neutral shadows to make your fall in autumn a safe one. www.benefitcosmetics.com
