As a result of years of research, blending, tasting, and development, Cincoro was released with one goal in mind: to create the new gold standard in tequila. The signature Cincoro taste profile is derived from a unique process created to highlight the highest quality highland and lowland 100 percent Blue Weber agave, blending them after separately distilling to showcase the best each plant can offer. The agave is hand-selected, slow-cooked, and distilled in separate small batches, creating two distinct distillates, which are then mixed together to create an innovative new blend. The result is a one-of-a-kind tequila experience akin to a cognac or fine wine, making for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for any wine or spirits lover.

I just discovered Chantecaille luminescent eye shades created to pay tribute to—and benefit—six of Africa’s most endangered, vanishing species: the elephant, rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, lion, and pangolin. All of these wild animals face common threats from shrinking habitats, conflict with humans, and illegal poaching, which make their long-term survival uncertain. These shades are not only a great way to give back but are pearlescent, light-catching eyeshadows that wash the eye with multi-dimensional shimmer. This gel-powder formula is infused with sophisticated pure-pearl particles to create a wash of color with a dash of dazzle on the eyelid. Talc-free and utterly blendable, the shades have an emollient, smooth application set with a featherweight cream-like finish that never falls or creases. I am just wild about the collection.
