M.A.C. Cosmetics Limited Edition Ruffian Red Lipstick: Sometimes it’s the little things that make a huge difference, like a great red lipstick that lights up your face. The rarest on the runway is MAC’s ruffian red, a limited edition yellow-based red lipstick from M.A.C. that was created by MAC and the Ruffian’s designer, Brian Wolk. . Only 500 tubes of this lipstick exist and you can’t buy it. Only those who attended the show on February 14th and a few, select trendsetters have it. But I got one! I wore it constantly during Fashion Week because it’s a bold but truly flattering tone, inspired by a red lacquer 18th Century Chinese vase (from the home of Wolk’s friend and muse, Antonie Thompson). The lipstick captures the “Franco-American allure” of Ruffian’s fall 2009 collection….and it captured my attention!

Ageless Fantasy by Harvey Prince & Co. The cheerful, grapefruit-y scent is supposed to make you appear younger. There’s some sense to the scent, and it smells uplifting. Liberal amounts keep me upbeat…. and maybe…looking and feeling more youthful!
