I’m a longtime fan of LUSH”s Rose Jam (you can read my review on Now Smell This, here), so I’m thrilled to learn that LUSH has begun creating similarly scented products. The latest is a solid shampoo bar called Jason and the Argan Oil (get it?).

Covet: Joya x Snarkitecture Secret Souvenir Candle


I love New York. I love fancy candles. I can’t help coveting these new products from Joya Studio in collaboration with “art and architecture company Snarkitecture.”

Here’s the official description:

“The offset wick of this otherwise plain cylindrical candle suggests something unexpected beneath the surface.

I love my two Guerlain foundations, Lingerie de Peau and Terracotta Joli Teint, as well as my very-special-treat-of-a-lipstick, Rouge G in Georgia… but I’ve managed to avoid the Guerlain counter since those purchases. However, now that I’ve been a few photos of Guerlain’s Fall 2014 collection (here on Chicprofile), I have a feeling that I’ll be planning a visit to Saks in September.

First, Guerlain is reissuing its KissKiss lipstick line with a new formulation and new shades. I love the shiny black cases.
