Latina Black Eyed Pea Fergie is launching a new perfume with Avon, appropriately named Outspoken. Coming this fall, the fragrance is said to reflect Fergie's overall appeal: "coyly feminine and unabashedly sexy."
Says Fergie of the new scent, which promises to be floral and fruity, "Outspoken definitely has a 'rock-n-roll boudoir' vibe. I think the woman who wears it can feel both strong and feminine at the same time."

Best part about it—from price range to technique—is you have options!

Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio and other Victoria Secret Angels helped usher in a new fragrance for the brand this past weekend in New York City called Heavenly Flowers. The limited edition floral is an offshoot of their wildly successful best-selling fragrance Heavenly, and will be in stores for purchase until June. The Eau De Parfum ($49 for 2.5 oz.) is a bright mix of guava, watermelon sorbet and mandarin, with a settled down scent of gardenia and lily of the valley.

Rimmel London’s new Lasting Finish Professional Nail Polish ($4, ulta.com) imparts impeccable shine in just one stroke thanks to its fat, flat brush. Nevermind that this wide applicator cuts your mani time in half, but as the polish is laid down in one smooth stroke, the chances of clumping or creating streaks is dramatically decreased.

The world of Gucci has released another pillar of luxury, this time in its fragrance portfolio: Gucci Flora Eau de Parfum ($60, 1 oz. spray, sephora.com) is a richer remix of the original Flora by Gucci. The parent was a light, bright floral bouquet, while its new offspring is a deeper, more sensual and concentrated formula. The gold liquid gives a hint to the warmer sweetness inside, and gives the bottle a more regal appearance overall.
