From Goth's Lips . . . While only a brave few will embrace the full-on black lips seen on YSL's fall runway, the haute company's new Gloss Pur Black, $28, provides a particularly slick accent when layered over a cherry lipstick. YSL makeup artist Val Garland also suggests dabbing it on eyelids for a sultry sheen.

Frugal Facial After studying spa facials for five years--sign us up, too!--scientists at Avon have figured out how to bottle the benefits: Anew Rejuvenate Night Revitalizing Cream, $32, and Flash Facial Revitalizing Concentrate, $48, collaborate to exfoliate, tighten pores, and strengthen skin cells. And they'll tide you over till your next trip to the Bacara Spa . . .
