Happy New Year! With the new year we are cleaning out our cosmetic counter and starting fresh with new cosmetics, fragrances, wardrobe and treats. With Pantone’s Color(s) of the Year 2016 “Rose Quartz and Serenity” have given life to the world and inspired many brands. These are new items that have been kicked up a notch and others a pleasant spin to the retro. Old items are great if they work but new items that are implemented in your beauty box or closet can add a flare to the staple products. To the New Year, New products, New Happiness!
