MAC: We all love a good splurge, but what makes this one even more satisfying is it’s for a good cause. MAC’s latest offering is an addition to the Viva Glam line, the entire proceeds of which go to the MAC AIDS Fund. Choose between two very stylish lip palettes, which have three shades each of Viva Glam lipstick and lip glass. If we were you, we’d go for “Warm Lips”, which has the Viva Glam V and VI lipsticks and the V lip glass. Rs1,500 each at all MAC stores.
Estee Lauder: When the beauty pioneer first launched her Private Collection fragrance in 1973, her idea was to give the world a perfume she had originally created for herself and friends. Estee’s granddaughter Aerin Lauder has recently released her own version of this scent,
Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia. Besides neroli, lilac, rosewood, orange flower, jasmine, white lily, carnation and vanilla bourbon, the scent also stars the two flowers that make up its name. While the concentrated parfum, at Rs16,060 for 30ml, may be out of reach for many fragrance lovers, the eau de parfum is priced at a more attractive Rs3,880 for 30ml and Rs6,670 for 75ml at The Galleria, Mumbai and UB City Mall, Bangalore.
