"It’s that spooky time of year again, and what better way to get into the Halloween spirit than experimenting with beauty essentials? So check out three of my favorite products below… if you dare." - Tracy J.
Korres Cucumber Fresh De-Puffing Eye Mask
"Halloween means Halloween parties. It’s almost certain you’ll be staying up all night either watching scary movies or dancing ‘til dawn. You’ll need to treat your tired, puffy eyes–and this Cucumber Fresh De-Puffing Eye Mask is a quick fix. It features cooling, calming cucumber to instantly refresh and moisturize, along with a cocktail of betaine and rhodiola rosea to reduce puffiness and rejuvenate. Best yet, it’s great for all skin types and super easy to use."
MAKE UP FOR EVER Studio Case
"Whether you’re hitting the town as a princess, vampire, or cowgirl, this palette has everything you need to capture the essence of your costume of choice. It features 12 eye shadows in a variety of shades and metallic textures that provide both superior color pay-off and smooth blendability. All of the artistry comes housed in a signature makeup kit with a rich black Artist Liner, perfect for precisely lining and defining for your unique look."
Kat Von D The Star Studded Look
"Leave it to Kat Von D to bring you the ultimate set. This limited-edition kit features three maven must-haves for a flawless look. The 24-hour mascara thickens the look of lashes as it coats from root to end. The infamous long-lasting, liquid tattoo liner features a super flexible tip that allows you to glide fluidly across the lash line for a variety of looks, resulting in an intensely pigmented, satin finish that's fade-proof, run-proof, and smear-proof. And the Studded Kiss Lipstick delivers a velvety finish and an intense, red (almost bloody-looking) hue. Now if that doesn't give you the shivers, I’m not sure what will."
It's Live Chat day BeautyTalk! Today we're chatting with Mischa G., a Bb. stylist with all kinds of awesome professional hair advice to give. The chat starts at 12 pm PST, but as usual I'm opening it up early for BT'ers to get their questions in.

It's live chat day on BeautyTalk!
YOU GUYS. I am so excited about today's live skincare chat. Today we have not one, but TWO phenomenal skincare experts, Ole Henriksen and Kate Somerville, taking your questions exclusively on BeautyTalk.. As a devoted user of both skincare lines, I'm super juiced to see your questions and read their great advice.
As usual, I'm opening the chat for BT early so you guys can get your questions in now, in case you can't make it at noon.

Happy WNW BeautyTalk! Today our product writer Kris is back to share his picks for Father's Day.
"Father’s Day is fast approaching and we all know how hard it is to shop for that guy! Here are a few great new items any dad would be proud to get, so break the tie-giving tradition and surprise him with something luxurious and fun that he’ll actually use. It’s just your way of saying, “Thanks, dad!”'
FOREO LUNA™ For Men
"This high-tech cleansing tool is made especially for men. It features two settings to cleanse and fight the signs of aging. The deep cleansing pulses leave skin smoother and softer, reducing the chances of razor burn and making dad’s face feel more awake and alive. The lower-frequency antiaging pulses stimulate the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and who wouldn't want that?"
Acqua Di Parma Collezione Barbiere After Shave Balm
"This balm is the bomb! It’s lightweight and fast-absorbing to provide instant relief, plus its alcohol-free formula doesn’t sting going on. Gentle plant extracts help aid skin repair from shaving scrapes, and hyluronic acid provides moisturizing and antiaging benefits. Most importantly it feels great and is unscented, so it doesn't clash with dad’s favorite scent."
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Gift Set
"Speaking of scents, this gift set from Victor & Rolf features their most popular male fragrance. Bold and spicy, it’s perfect for the sporty dad. This set includes eau de toilette, shower gel, and aftershave balm to complete the experience. Surprise him with something a bit spicy. It might just be good for him."

Here’s what we've got our eyes on this week:
Philosophy Amazing Grace Gift Set
Mother’s Day gift alert! Philosophy’s Amazing Grace fragrance is classic, casual, and perfect for mom. Plus it comes with a luxurious whipped body crème in the same amazing (pun intended!) scent.
Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Set I had never heard of alguronic acid before I discovered Algenist, but now I can’t get enough. I’m obsessed with their anti-aging moisturizer, and this set gives me a FULL SIZE of it, plus two extras, for the price of just the moisturizer. Sold! (And bought.)
Sephora Collection Cabana Cutie Kit
“This lip balm and bronzer duo is just what I needed to get a spring start on summer. The balm changes color based on your natural pH and I’m happy to report 'my pink' is quite nice (yours will be too!). The honey flavor is also delicious. The baked bronzer gives off a dreamy glow, blending a lightweight matte/satin formula for sunkissed, happy cheeks.”
