Lush, the natural beauty brand who makes those addicting bath bombs we all love, has created a special Día de los Muertos collection. The company states on their website that they decided to create the products because they “were so inspired by the idea that this time of year could be filled with love instead of scary creatures.”

Daisy Fuentes is set to roll out her fifth fragrance this coming February, and we had the chance to catch up with the sexy cubana while getting a sneak peek of the scent.
As we spritzed, Daisy offered up this pearl of wisdom regarding beauty: “Be mysterious. These days it’s so easy to share everything about yourself on the Internet and keep nothing for yourself, but I think it’s so much sexier to maintain some mystery.”

Daddy Yankee found inspiration from the Caribbean to create his first fragrance for women, called DYamante. “It’s a tropical, sweet scent—perfect for a woman who is in touch with who she is and where she comes from,” he says. He’s definitely right about it being sweet! The notes include purple passion fruit, honeysuckle and vanilla.

Lately a few of our fave stars have been spotted with super long fingernails. Eva Longoria Parker had nails grown past her fingertips at a recent event for the launch of her fragrance. Fergie showed off her pointy nails while singing the National Anthem with Marc Anthony at the Miami Dolphins game. And Cassie sported square-shaped tips at New York Fashion Week. The common denominator: a nude or clear lacquer, which keeps the look more, well, polished.

Do you remember last fall’s “greige” nail polish trend? It was a putty color that was a blend of gray and beige. Well, it’s back. But this time greige gets mixed with other pastel shades, like green, purple, pink, and brown. I call them muddy pastels, and they’re perfect for transitioning from a summer of bright colors to fall’s toned-down neutrals. Click through this slideshow for five sure-to-sell-out-fast options:

If you’re looking for a way to spice up a massage, I’ve got just the thing. It’s called the Rhythm Massage, and it’s based on flamenco, salsa, and bolero music.
Dayalis Gonzalez, a massage therapist at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach, got the idea for the service as she was dancing to Latin music in the car and realized that a massage could play off the beats of her favorite music.

Gucci creative director, Frida Giannini, was sitting in her car listening to Barbra Streisand’s song “Guilty” when she imagined the concept for the brand’s latest fragrance, Gucci Guilty ($55, available on gucci.com starting today!). I like to picture her in a really sleek convertible, pushing the gas pedal with killer Gucci heels, and whipping around the curves of some Italian road.

Jessica Alba, a Revlon Brand Ambassador, tweeted this pic of her and photographer Jake Nava at a Revlon photo shoot Wednesday. Based on the image, I expected the ad to be for fall’s hot red lipstick trend; but Revlon tells me that it’s actually for their Just Add Sparkle nail enamels.
