Fabulous Links: St. Patrick’s Day

He’s magically delicious! *

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Spring is allmooost here. Unfortunately in New Jersey, it’s taking it’s sweet time. Beauty Land made a few cool announcements this week, so let’s get started.

Glamlite Cosmetics, the brand that brought you a pizza-inspired palette, announced its newest launch, an ode to the all-American burger! All your favorite toppings are there, including avocado and tomato, so you really can have it your way! Here’s the post from Glamlite’s Instagram :

Did you play the video? I wonder why they chose ‘Rockin’ Robin’. If you have any ideas, please drop me a line in the comments. Since I watched this video, I can’t get that song out of my head! And I don’t even eat beef. The burger palette is coming soon. (Allure)

M.A.C. announced it is collaborating with Disney on an Aladdin-themed mini collection comprising a blush, a lipstick, and an eye shadow palette. One goodie for each wish a genie would grant. I’m drooling over the palette. I never got over missing out on the MAC x Cinderella palette. The collection launches on May 16, right before the premiere of Guy Ritchie’s live-action version of Aladdin. (Allure)

And I saved the best for last. Sephora announced this week it is launching ts own credit card. A Sephora Visa credit card and a Sephora Visa Signature credit card are coming, too. The cards will have rewards above and beyond any Sephora Beauty Insider perks. If you choose a Sephora Visa Signature card, you’ll also have access to Visa Signature Benefits. (Allure)

And this week on The Doctor Will See You Now, I wrote a piece about self control and New Year’s resolutions.

If you need me, I’ll be at The Shops at Hudson Yards, which opened on Friday. It features New York City’s first Neiman Marcus, and lots of other good stuff, like Kiehl’s, Sephora, and Jo Malone London. Maybe I’ll see you there?

Serendipity 3 in NYC. Great birthday lunch here today for my friend Laurie!

Can you believe Labor Day is in two weeks?! Fall is definitely creeping up on us. And Beautyland is ready!

My love of all things Taraji P. Henson and Cookie Lyon is well documented. Taraji is once again collaborating with MAC on another lipstick and lip gloss for the brand’s Viva Glam campaign. The gorgeous copper-y shades are perfect for fall. They drop September 7. (Allure)

Saks Fifth Avenue has launched a beauty rewards program. You need to be a SaksFirst credit card holder, and the rewards start kicking in after you spend $250, but with brands like MAC, Tom Ford, and La Mer, it’s beauty nirvana! (Refinery29)

Here’s a list of all the beauty launches you need to watch this fall, courtesy of Allure. The TBD Styler from Living Proof looks interesting…. (Allure)

And how cool is Maye Musk? Almost 70, gorgeous, and sexy as hell. (WWD)

Recently on the blog, I reviewed skincare products from Nebo Naturals and Eavara. And I shared my photos from Columbus Circle, Central Park, Central Park Part 2, and the Museum at Eldridge Street.

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Check out the Q1 highlights here and the best of Q2 here.

2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

This year I wanted to get a jump start on my holiday gift guides. I thought I’d begin with some cute stocking stuffers for the beauty buffs on your list. At under $30, they’re also perfect for all your gift exchange and Secret Santa needs.

For the mani/pedi queen…

If you have a friend or co-worker who loves to pamper herself with an at-home mani/pedi, she’ll love the Candy Cane (buy it here) and Soft Metals Collection (buy it here) polish sets from Nails, Inc., available at Sephora.

For the skin care junkie…

If your niece/sister/daughter is always posting sheet mask selfies and #sundayskincare pics to her social media accounts, she’ll appreciate the Kiehl’s Jeremyville ‘Hydration Essentials’ Kit (available here) or the Sephora Collection Face Mask Set (available here)

For the girl who is always in the bathroom fixing her hair… 

Seriously. I had a supervisor once who gave me a hairbrush for Christmas because she always saw me in the ladies’ room brushing my hair. If you have someone like me on your list, she might like this pretty Sephora Collection Sparkle & Shine Dual Boar Brush (get it here) or maybe the OUAI Mini Style Edit (get it here).
