Star Power


evelomstarIn preparation for a weekend filled with holiday cheer (and suggestive balls of mistletoe dangling in door frames), I suggest treating yourself to Eve Lom’s cult-favorite Kiss Mix lip treatment, laced with moisturizing beeswax and cooling menthol. This clear balm instantly melts into chapped skin without leaving a sticky residue behind (ideal for those who end up next to you underneath the aforementioned hanging plant). Or, for last-minute gifting, opt for the holiday edition, which comes packaged in a gold-star gift box and also doubles as an ornament. Even better: no need to wrap.

Basic Instincts


kat burki raw beauty

Interior designer turned beauty-brand founder Kat Burki, knows how to dress up a room—both with her keen eye for decor and her signature collection of aromatic candles and soaps. (It all started when Burki created Tuberose-scented soaps and candles to leave as gifts for her clients, which quickly developed a cult following.) Now she’s stripping away the frills and fragrance (along with parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, and dyes) and focusing on high-quality, natural ingredients with her new collection, Raw Beauty. “I’ve always emphasized the usage of raw materials, even as an interior designer,” says Burki. Comprised of four products—hand cream, body scrub, body butter, and a lip treatment—the line is laced with an organic herb blend (consisting of gotu kola, chamomile, arnica, and lavender) designed to soothe, soften, and improve the skin’s elasticity. Even better: All the products smell clean and elegant, not crunchy like other green goods I’ve tried. My personal favorite: the Glossy Lip Treatment. Never a fan of plumping lip glosses (the discomfort that goes hand in hand with the bee-stung look just isn’t worth it), I’m happy to report that Burki’s balm boasts moisturizing vitamin-E, organic beeswax, coconut, and castor-seed oils, along with cinnamon essential oil to subtly pump up your pout (minus the pain). Going back to the basics never felt so luxe.
