Last week, famed Parisian patisserie Ladurée opened a New York boutique in the midst of macaron fever. While we can't wait to nibble the tasty treats here on US soil, we're equally charmed by something new in the beauty world. MOR's Lip Macarons ($10 each) are smooth, moisturizing lip balms scented with classic macaron flavors: French vanilla, peach, blood orange, and more. The tin container is just a little larger than an edible macaron, making it the perfect go-anywhere balm with a subtle French flair. Comment dit-on "adorable packaging"?
You know what they say about March: in like a lion, out like an animal with seriously smooth skin and a soft scent. (Or something like that.) We've spent the past month testing dozens of products, and these five are among our favorites. Read on to see what we're loving.

Despite getting their company's name from the Hindi word for "peacock," the founders of MOR Cosmetics are full-on Aussies. The couple, Deon St. Mor and Dianna Burmas, had an interior design shop in Melbourne and began creating products in 2001. What emerged was a line of candles, soaps, fragrances, and bath products that are delightfully packaged and deliciously scented (kale and watercress, marshmallow, pistachio, kumquat). But these aren't just for show: the 500-item line is created in Australia and has a cult-y following rumored to include two people with cult followings all their own, Oprah and Barbra Streisand. Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott actually requested MOR stock the bathrooms in their bed and breakfast — a request the company happily obliged. Um, gimme MOR!
