I mentioned in my OOTD post earlier this week on Fierce, I had the chance to revisit the Eau Spa at the Ritz Carlton West Palm Beach this past Saturday to. The Eau Spa is the first spas I ever reviewed and I was happy to be back! This time I was treated to their season treat - The Pumpkin Perfecting Facial. It's part of the hotel's Pumpkin Palooza program going on just in time for Halloween. "Pumpkin is a super-ingredient for the skin and a powerful anti-oxidant," said Spa Director Kristin Carpenter, "it is high in zinc, beta carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A so not only does it help fight the free radicals that are believed to cause aging but it is also acts as a natural cleanser that exfoliates, soothes and softens your skin. Plus, it smells good enough to eat!" Nancy, who gave me my facial for the day explained to me that the acid in Pumpkin that forms once it goes passed its prime is what's used for glycolic peels (Learn something new every day!)

So many lipstick options, but they're still not enough! Photo by ThinkstockThere are thousands of lipstick shades on the market, so why is it our current favorite is always discontinued? Out of all the nail polishes in the world, why is the one we use regularly a limited edition color and already out of stock? These beauty woes are no longer an issue thanks to Giella, a beauty site that will accurately custom-blend any makeup shade you please.Read More »from Get your favorite discontinued cosmetics custom-blended
Kathie Lee Gifford mentioned on the Today Show that her favorite Chanel nail lacquer, Khaki Rose was out of stock, and Giella whipped up a batch for her. If you're a fan of the polish you can buy the custom color called Happy Hour here, or you can submit your own nearly used-up cosmetics to get re-made. All you have to do is mail in your tube, container, or bottle to Giella and they'll make you a replicate color and send it back with your original product. The process costs $25 to $28 depending on the product-it's kind of expensive, but we think many women would be willing to shell out for their favorite shade. We only

Best mascara how-to

Despite my one-of-a-kind, march-to-my-own-drum kind of ways, I got a celebrity-inspired tattoo on my 18th birthday. Go ahead, call me a cliché. But I fell in love with this pretty tattoo Victoria Beckham has on the nape of her neck and decided to get my own version of it.
Of course, I then had to hide it from my parents. And the minute I mindlessly tossed my hair into a ponytail, my mom was shrieking and my dad was yelling. If only I had seen this video ...
Rick Genest, the (scarily) inked up dude from the Lady Gaga music video who's got a full body of tattoos, gets them completely covered using this amazing product from Dermablend. You'd never know he had any tats at all. And even though I'm well past the point of trying to hide my 18th birthday present from me to me, I can think of a few times this product would come in handy:
1. If you get a seriously regrettable tattoo like one of these and need to cover it up while you save for laser tattoo removal.
2. You need a newRead More »from The Most Insane Tattoo Video Ever (You Seriously Have to See This)
I will try anything once. Well, at least when it comes to beauty.
Lip Tattoos? Sure, why not. Serums that make my lashes grow? I'll swipe that on every night. The Bumpit? I wore it to the grocery store … once.
I'm game for anything. Well, at least I thought I was.
My all-or-nothing, take one for the team, go-getter attitude towards beauty products is being tested by a new perfume. That you swallow. Like, literally, you eat it and then sweat it out. Intrigued? See it for yourself:
Don't believe me? I'll quote the manufacturer: "Swallowable Parfum is essentially a capsule containing synthetic fragrant lipid molecules that mimic the structure of the fat molecules naturally found in the body. When those lipids get metabolized by the body's enzymes, fragrant molecules are released and excreted through the skin's surface through perspiration. The strength of the resulting scent is determined by theRead More »from Swallowable Perfume: Would You Try It? (VIDEO)

I have a close friend who has a lucky lipstick. It's a classic -- Revlon's Fire and Ice Lipstick -- and looks fabulous on her. Not only does it brighten her entire face, it also has major lasting power, as in survives a full cheeseburger, fries, and wine meal and still looks completely fresh. (To find the best red lipstick for your skin tone, click here.) BUT this post this isn't about her lipstick, like I said, it's about her lucky lipstick.
See, whenever she needs good vibes, like on a job interview or when meeting a new guy, she just swipes on her favorite red. And, always -- I really mean always -- things magically work out. She gets the job, and that new guy turns out to be amazing.
Coincidence? That's what I thought. Then, I spoke withseveral makeup artists and appearance professionals, including Linda Mason, author of "Eye Candy," and I learned something truly mind blowing. Apparently, your makeup look sends signals out into the world. (To see what signals your makeupRead More »from What Does Your Makeup Say About You?

Autumn brings pumpkins, cozy nights, sweaters and ... hair loss?

I thought this was so interesting, because I've been noticing more hair on my brush lately, so perhaps this explains things! But, if you're also experiencing hair loss, and you're concerned by it, it's smart to talk to your doc. Hair loss can be a sign of more serious health issues that need treatment (thyroid conditions, for instance, or iron deficiency).
