Back to School Beauty - Traffic School

When we plan our yearly Back to School feature, we usually don't plan on Traffic School as being a part of it. But when I recently browsed the Benefit counter and found their Lipstick in Traffic School ($16) , I knew it just had to be included.


This is the perfect pink- berry lip color for fall. Like all of Benefit's lipsticks, it glides on smoothly and imparts a sheer glossy shade on the lips. Lip gloss is never needed with this lipstick as it is already full of shine.

Look for Traffic School at and Benefit Counters - and just maybe you will only get a warning (tee hee) this time!


Back to School Beauty - SO...?

What attitude do you want to project when going back to school ... Wild, Desirable, or Kissable?

There is a great new brand (new to the US, anyway) called So...?. The So...? collection includes So...? Kiss Me, So...? Desirable, and So...? Wild. Each scent has a different energy and every girl will find one that is perfect for her. Whether you want that special someone to notice you or you want to be the life of the party, So...? is sure to have a fragrance for you.




I would say that KISS ME is for a girl who wants a more kissable fragrance, with a combination of sweet fruit and sassy sensuality. Top notes of blackcurrant, pineapple, and citron are complemented by layers of vanilla and a floral heart of musk and woods.






A girl looking to bring our her romantic side, will fit perfect with this scent. DESIRABLE is a seductive type of fragrance, with a slight of whimsy added on in. The aromas of musk, freesia, and magnolia, are softened with fruity notes of apple and mandarin.






This one is great for a girl who has a definite passion for life. WILD is a contemporary floral fragrance combining sweet pineapple and tangerine citrus top notes with jasmine and vanilla.




All of the SO...? Fragrances are available at Kohl's in the following:
Eau de Toilette (1.7 oz.) for $16.95
Eau de Toilette (.67 oz.) for $8.50
Body Fragrance (2.5 oz.) for $4.50
A variety of fragrance gift sets, that come in great tote bags with things like lip gloss and lotion are available seasonally as well.
