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!).

We recently caught up with Costa Rican pop star Debi Nova to get the scoop on the beauty products she can’t live without.

The adorably prickly green cactus character Bastardino dangles off a Cromatico Eyeshadow Palette.
