NARS Uncensored Advent Calendar

For beauty fans, the beginnings of the festive season are most exciting not for the ice-skating pop-ups and seasonal mulled wine drinking, but for the opportunity to shop Christmas offerings from some of the hottest brands around.

Wu-Tang x Milk Makeup Collection

Gilded dragons and the group's signature W's emblazoned on luxe black packaging: that's what you'll find in Wu-Tang's new collaboration with Milk Makeup. The beauty brand will be releasing a 24-karat, gold-plated mirror, a trio of lapel pins, and a box set of eight lipsticks (which you can also purchase individually). The collab celebrates Wu-Tang and Milk Makeup's relationship — the group even performed at Milk Gallery back in 2012 — and combined love of New York. The lipstick set is the star of this already-shining collection. It's available in eight buttery hues: Sacred (shimmery rose gold), Fire (matte red-orange), Chi (creamy true red), Flow (creamy warm rose), Frequency (glittery purple), Cypher (creamy woodrose), Ruckus (creamy pink), and Source (a deep red) — all...

The Honest Co. Hand Sanitizier Spray

There's really no time of year when you shouldn't be using hand sanitizer — especially if you, like me, live in New York City and come into contact with an unthinkable number of germs via the Subway or even the door handle to get into your office building.     But now that cold and flu season is officially upon us (reminder: go get your flu shot!), it's all the more reason to stock up. So you might as well stock up on a good one that's actually pleasant to use, like The Honest Co.'s version. It's plant-based and hypoallergenic, and I've found that it definitely doesn't dry out my hands as much as other formulas can. That's probably because this one (while, yes, being made...

Bond No. 9 New Bond St Eau De Parfum

Think of this new fragrance like a grown-up gourmand. No longer a dessert-derivative, this one's got teeth. The creamy vanilla, coffee, and cocoa are sexed-up with leatherwood and spicy patchouli. It's a scent that smells like a modern-day speakeasy — one with dark velvet wallpaper, glistening leather-upholstered booths, and a really good DJ. Here at Bond No. 9, we've always loved the low-key, unassuming, out-of-the-way NoHo side street that's been our headquarters and flagship since 1999. Today, this two-block cobblestoned stretch is no longer unassuming. Sure, it still exudes a vintage Downtown vibe. But dramatic changes have taken place on Bond Street. Over the past several years, it's evolved into a zone of casually elegant fabulousness for the millennial supermodels, the iconic movie stars, the politicos...
