The article is the best of beauty and fashion (and yes, I was especially taking note of some of the fashion items, like the LL Bean pullover that I want to pick up), some of which I've used and the nine beauty essentials, of which I've tried two. Seriously, TWO. How can that be??
First, I was pretty proud of myself for the iconic makeup colors they featured on the first page of the article. I haven't tried Fire & Ice, or the Guerlain bronzer. I own Stila Kitten in a million other forms and love it, though I admit I somehow don't have the original shadow. I have NARS Orgasm in a lippie, a gloss, an illuminator, I have the original blush and the suped up Super Orgasm blush, the multiple, the nail polish... kind of crazy. Regardless, I agreed with all of their iconic shade choices. They're pretty universally flattering and classic!
