The Beauty Beat 9/11-9/17

Paradise, the Palms and a perfect physique.

This week, treat yourself to a bit of Posh Paradise from M.A.C., weekly deals from the Palms and the new Fizzique class at Iron Flower Fitness.

Leave it up to M.A.C. to whip out a bit of paradise, just as fall is rolling in. Looking to the darker shades of the great unexplored, Posh Paradise blends the wild colors of the jungle with its Mattene Lipsticks ($14.50) in Legendary, a mid-tone brick, and Potent Fig, a blue-purple. The pearlized Paint Pots ($17.50) in Hyperviolet, a deep purple, and Treasure Hunt, a light yellow, capture the way the light falls on those exotic leaves in the jungle, while Posh Paradise Nail Lacquer ($15) in Rain of Flowers (a blackened violet with shimmer) mimics exotic jungle buds. This taste of Posh Paradise launches September 15. GET IT: 107 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach; 305.538.1088.
