Carolina Herrera Evokes NYC Glam



 
Inspired by the city of New York, the bottle for Carolina Herrera’s 212 Glam ($63) is meant to be reminiscent of the NYC skyline during the summer. Representing the neon glow of the never-sleeping city, this limited edition was created for the “young, energetic, stylish and confident women who electrify New York.” 212 Glam’s metallic ice cube top shimmers against the transparent glass bottom, allowing the juice to contrast beautifully with the silvery top, and “shimmer like a summer heat haze typical of Manhattan.” The top notes of toffee and lollipop bring out the sweet, playful side of the scent.

Calvin Kleinís Eternity Aqua Washes Up on Counters

The gradated blues and turquoises flow up the bottle to a crystal clear cap; the slender flacon is a new interpretation of the Eternity signature bottle. A deep blue pool served as inspiration for the outer packaging, which features the same blue gradient as the bottle. The juice is described as “an aquatic floral for her, inspired by the essence of femininity in all its ease. Sexy and refreshing, the fragrance is like a clean, crisp ocean breeze.” Just in time for feeling the heat this summer.

Elizabeth Grant Exfoliates and Conditions Lips



 
Chapped lips can make it difficult to achieve a smooth look with balm or lipstick, but Elizabeth Grant has solved that problem with a two-step product called Can You Keep a Secret ($38). This lip treatment duo consists of an exfoliator and a lightly textured deep conditioning balm with anti-aging actives that target symptoms of dry and lined lips. Start by twisting the black dial three clicks. Push the lips to activate the gentle massage effect, and use the gentle exfoliator to lightly remove dry skin cells from the area. Apply the balm to soothe and smooth. For best results, use the exfoliator 2-3 times a week, or as often as needed for prime puckering.
