What a Gem

Dull, sallow skin—I blame the dark winter days. To my rescue: L'Oréal's new Skin Genesis Complexion Equalizer, $19.99, which brightens with pink tourmalines, vitamin C, and salicylic acid.

French Connection

We know he's a fashion genius, but Balenciaga's Nicolas Ghesquière apparently has quite a nose, too: For the house's latest woodsy, violet-leaf-laced perfume, Balenciaga Paris EDP, $95, he took cues from the "strong and not-too-girly beauty" of longtime muse and gal-pal Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Shade Shifter

Remember mood rings? Consider this the (slightly more) grown-up take: Too Faced Mood Swing Lip Gloss in Pink Shimmer, $18.50, goes on clear, then turns increasingly pink as your body temperature rises.
