“The Comeback”‘s Valerie Cherish makes me just as acutely uncomfortable as she did in 2005 and vaguely reminds me of some of the women whom I’ve worked for who were so striving for more in aggressively middle-management positions it was actually sad. But you have to admit, the gal looks great. Here, some California-based brands Valerie would adore.
Jouer Lip French Kiss Trio Gift Set It comes in a glitter bag, perfect for storing your id, credit card and gloss. At $25 ($60 value!) it includes Glisten (sheer sparkling pink) Moisturizing Lip Gloss, Starfish (sheer peach with champagne glitter) Moisturizing Lip Gloss and Blush (creamy baby pink) Moisturizing Lip Gloss
Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette (though she would maintain she has no vices). She’ll adore that it comes in a little natural habitat that doubles as an iPad mini case. $60 at Nordstrom.
Murad Youth Builder Set Valerie cherishes (ha!) any opportunity to look back and this skin care set is the equivalent of a time machine. It comes with a skin-smoothing body cleanser and a massively hydrating hand cream. $18, murad.com.
