With a soft spot for sunset-inspired shades of caramel, coral and gold, iVillage's marketing intern packs as much of it into her neutral tote as she can, including Maybelline SuperStay 24-Hour Lip Color and Sephora polish for emergency nail fixes.

Our food editor’s haul showcases a rainbow of reds, from a wallet to a deep cherry lip gloss. The only place you won’t find the hue? On her complexion, thanks to L’Oreal’s redness-correcting CC cream.
