Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, friends! Hope your Halloween night is filled with the ghoulish fun of your choice, whether it be the Halloween parade in the Village, partying it up in your sexy cop costume, or acting younger than you are and going trick-or-treating.

As for me, I was going to dress up as Amy Winehouse but was too lazy to hunt down about 10 black wigs and some dirty ballet slippers, so I'll probably be a devil...again.

Here are some spooky beauty products to add that special touch to your All Hallows Eve:

Yves Saint Laurent Limited Edition Black Lip Gloss ($28) Channel your inner Elvira with this black lippie! Blend it with a red or berry shade to add depth, or just go all-out black with several coats.

Estee Lauder Pleasures Jeweled Spider ($250) OK, so this is a ridiculous indulgence, but how could I write a Halloween post and not include it? This adorable little arachnid pops open to reveal a supply of Pleasures in solid form (well, I think it's Pleasures, but the Saks site also lists it as Beautiful, so you'd have to see for yourself, I suppose).

Bath & Body Works Slatkin & Co Pumpkin Candle (reg. $19.50, now $9.75) I LOVE the smell of the Pumpkin candle by Slatkin! Score this one on sale for $9.75, or check out the other incarnations (silver pumpkins, plain ceramic pumpkin, etched glass candle, and various other home fragrance creations).

Philosophy Haunted House Trio ($30) This cute little house hosts a trio of seasonally-scented body washes in Caramel Apple, Black Licorice and Pumpkin Spice Muffin. Black Licorice is a love-it-or-hate-it kind of thing, but when you love it, you LOVE IT (can you tell what camp I fall into?). As for Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Spice Muffin, they're just delicious, regardless.

Lush Ghost Shower Gel ($16.50) It's shimmery, it's limited edition, it smells like lilies, and it's from LUSH! Can't ask for much more than that. Although I have to admit, whenever I see the label I start thinking of pottery wheels while "Unchained Melody" plays in my head...
