fifty shades of grey dallas

With the film,  Fifty Shades of Grey right around the corner, here are some products to get you in the "grey" mood. Tell us what you think, and if you'll be trying any of the products.!


L'Oreal Paris 'Dark Side of Greys' Polish

'Fifty Shades' Bath Oil

Part of the Fifty Shades of Grey Official Sensual Care Collection, this bath oil ($14.99, Target.com

Make Up For Ever 'Cheeky' Blush Set

Make Up For Ever partnered with Fifty Shades of Grey head makeup artist Victoria Down to create the Desire Me Cheeky Blush Trio ($49, Sephora.com), inspired by the film. Down used the brand every day on set, because she loves "the quality, range of colors, and superior blendability."

Make Up For Ever 'Give In To Me' Kit

Down and Make Up For Ever also collaborated on this elaborate Give In To Me Makeup Kit ($79, Sephora.com), which features an eye shadow palette, graphic eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, lipgloss, and keepsake box. 

Make Up For Ever 'Tease Me' Lip Set

Christian was all about Ana biting her lip, and now we can all have just-bitten rosy red lips, thanks to this tie-in lip pencil, lipstick, and lip gloss from Make Up For Ever, bundled together in the aptly named Tease Me Lip Set in Passionate ($32,Sephora.com). There's also an "Innocent" set with beige hues.




Make Up For Ever HD Foundation

To achieve that perfect skin Ana was famous for, Down says she used Make Up For Ever's HD Foundation ($42, Sephora.com) on Dakota Johnson. She mixed it with a bit of moisturizer, because "on camera you want to show a little underlying sheen and shine on the skin."




OPI 'Fifty Shades' Collection

OPI never fails to jump on the hottest trend, so obviously, they have a collection of polishes inspired by the film and with fitting, witty names to boot. There's "My Silk Tie" (gleaming silver), "Romantically Involved" (creme red), "Dark Side of the Mood" (charcoal), "Shine for Me" (shimmering silver with subtle blue sparkle), "Cement the Deal" (stony, cool gray), and "Embrace the Gray" (chic, moody gray). The polishes are sold individually for $9.50 each, or you can grab a six-pack of minis for $21.95 at Ulta.com.

'Fifty Shades' Massage Candle

From the official Fifty Shades bath and body line also comes this massage candle ($15.99, Target.com), laced with Christian's signature scent and enriched with coconut oil and jojoba, so you can use it as an aromatic candle or a massage oil.
