We don’t know when the animal-themed beauty trend started (could it have been Rihanna’s grr-tastic appearance in this leopard hoodie?), but it’s all the rage. From carved elephant candles to a zebra-striped hair dryer, these zoo-inspired items make us want to take a walk on the wild side!
New for Fall 2010, these Paul & Jo Kitty Lipstick ($25, each) are at once totally adorable and, um, kinda creepy. Either way, we’re smitten with these kittens.
Hot Tools Pink Zebra Hair Dryer ($23) is not only incredibly chic, it comes with a diffuser attachment for fluffing-up natural curls.
Chantecaille Les Dauphins Face Palette ($77) is a bit pricey, but the combination of soft grays, beiges and pinks looks so elegant on brown skin. Plus, Chantecaille gives 5% of each purchase to a marine conservation charity.
Sephora by OPI Mixn Chic Print for Nails in “Tiger” ($15) comes with 16 self-adhesive nail patches of varying sizes, so they fit on both fingers and toes.
According to feng shui, elephants with uplifted trunks are a good luck charm! BlissLiving Home Carved Elephant Candles ($13, each) will definitely bring positive energy—and a gorgeous aroma—to any room.
Tweezerman Paw Print Matchbook Itty Bitty Files ($4) come with a zillion tiny emery boards—just the thing to stash in your makeup bag, gym locker or desk drawer. Plus, fifty cents from each sale will be donated to the Humane Society.
Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzing Powder ($28) adds a hint of sun-kissed shimmer to cheeks and eyelids—and the compact looks so pretty perched on your vanity!
Cushion the balls of your feet in style with these Foot Petals “Safari” Tip Toes ($18.95)! The adorable little pads also help prevent you from slipping in your tights.
