I recently went to Luxe Den in midtown for a manicure. You would think it was easy enough to find a neutral color for my nails, but the manicurist and I found ourselves sifting through 10 different shades for something that was neutral but not sheer.

Something you’ll learn at Piola is that it’s possible to make pizza in a gajillion different ways — including topped with eggs.

Hey Dude, a new men's skin care company
Hey Dude Skin Care is hoping to answer men’s skin care needs with products ranging from $16-$59. According to their site, a man’s skin is approximately 20% thicker than a woman’s, and more firm because it’s richer in collagen and elastin (you bastards).

Incanto Bloom perfume
With Incanto Bloom, which launched this month, the luxury brand is hoping to target the young, metropolitan, fashion-savvy ladies.
