Best Bets


This November, there’s so much to be Thankful for.


As far as we’re concerned, there isn’t enough lip gloss in the world. And if a lip gloss donates all profits (yep, every penny) to charities that support women’s health advocacy and human rights issues, then that is just gravy. PeaceKeeper’s Lip Gloss does just that and in the meantime moisturizes lips with Vitamin E (capitalize), green tea and vanilla extract. Available in five shades including the newest – Eternal Equity, at Whole Foods in Chelsea, Union Square or Time Warner Center or visit to purchase.


It’s baaaack! Sephora’s mega Blockbuster Palette, a quick sell out in 2006, has returned in a new colorway. Sure, it’s an obvious gift idea for the rapidly approaching holidays, but instead, we advocate buying one as a gift for yourself. It’s the perfect way to experiment with colors that you’d never wear otherwise and with 64 eyeshadows, 32 lip colors, 7 cheek colors and a translucent shimmer powder, you’re guaranteed to find a new-to-you shade. Available at Sephora stores nationwide.


While not everyone is prepared enough to get moving on their holiday gift list in November, Cargo’s nifty GlossyGreetings Cards and Gift Tags make it easy. Sold in sets of 5, each card includes a mini bubble of one of Cargo’s most popular lip gloss flavors. And while it’s nice to feel good about getting a head start on holiday shopping, it’s even sweeter to know that 100% of profits are donated to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Available at


Muy caliente! Clinique’s Angel Red Different Lipstick is quite simply, hot! A dreamy red with currant undertones, Angel Red suits most skin tones and depending on your style, can be worn to the office or out for the evening. Clinique is celebrating their exclusive cosmetic sponsorship of the 8th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards™ by offering this bold color as a gift with any Clinique purchase for a limited time only.

Pardon the pun, but Bee-uty Buzz, the new 2-in-1 lip balm and gloss from Models Prefer, is too sweet for words. The subtly honey scented balm is emollient and smooth to apply and unscrews easily to reveal a hidden honey flavored lip gloss that gives high shine – if you can keep yourself from licking it all off. Visit to purchase.
