    We were lucky enough to test-drive L’Oréal Paris' latest, limited-edition nail collection inspired by Fifty Shades. The hot, rich (kinda like Christian, eh?) colors will retail for $5.99 each at select retailers beginning next month. The formula is said to deliver intense color, luxurious shine, and 10-day wear.

    Part of the Fifty Shades of Grey Official Sensual Care Collection, this bath oil ($14.99, Target.com) was created with the help of author EL James herself and features Christian's "signature scent" of bergamot, sandalwood, and musk. No vanilla in sight!

    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."

    Apparently, Down's such a MUFE fan that she shared "looks, techniques, and backstage secrets" in the Cheeky set, which comes bundled up in a velvet keepsake pouch. Sexxxy!

  • 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. A kit fit for a queen ... or, you know, Anastasia Steele.

  • 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.

    Experts over at Birchbox note that the flawless, rosy lips Dakota Johnson flaunts in the Fifty Shades trailer can easily be achieved with Cynthia Rowley "Valentine" Lip Stain ($20, Birchbox.com).

    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."

  • stila Convertible Color

    Those flushed cheeks that Ana famously sported around Christian -- and that are clearly visible on Dakota in the trailer! -- can also be achieved with cult-classic Convertible Color from stila in Poppy ($25, Birchbox.com).

  • 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.

    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.

  • Benefit Gimme Brow

    Irish YouTube star Melanie Murphy recreated Ana's "no makeup" makeup look from the film's trailer and recommends using Benefit's Gimme Brow ($22, Sephora.com) to thicken and groom eyebrows.

  • Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash

    Down told Make Up For Ever that once Ana got a bit more sophisticated and sultry on-screen, she would "use a little more of the Smoky Mascara ($23, Sephora.com) and create a smokey eye. Move away from the taupes and more into a little grayish, charcoal color to bring out the color of her eyes. You can also throw a little of a darker eye pencil on the inside of the eyes."
