Beauty: Editor's Pick

Red Hot

With so many Estée Lauder products to choose from,
it’s hard to play favorites. But that won’t stop us from trying.
Here’s what we’re loving this month.

Bold, spicy, sexy: Everything you want in a fragrance when you want to get noticed. And Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss covers all of those bases, making it our new go-to scent for a glamorous night out. Like the original Modern Muse, it’s complex and interesting—and like nothing you’ve ever smelled before. The fruity, woody scent feels lush, thanks to black cherry, mandarin orange and rose centifolia, but it also gets a kick from jasmine absolute, leather-like styrax (a small shrub) and labdanum (another leather- and peppery-smelling teeny shrub), while saffron, vanilla and patchouli provide a little edge and mystery. Finally, carrot and pink pepper add just the right amount of unexpected, nose tingling spiciness. This is one floral scent that’s definitely not for wallflowers.
