Innovative Beauty Products (That Actually Work)
January 18, 2010
If you’re in the market to upgrade your cosmetics bag this month, may I humbly suggest you read the following. These five products will make the dreary winter weeks ahead that much more bearable–and beautiful.
Longer lashes, especially when they are natural, are priceless. For those who haven’t hopped on the Latisse bandwagon yet, there’s Tarte’s new MultiplEYE Lash Enhancing Mascara ($32). A multi-tasking spin-off from the original MultiplEYE Lash Enhancer ($65), this number helps lashes grow with amino acid proteins, while strengthening them and giving you a faux boost in the meantime.
Dry air, a winter trademark whether you are outdoors or in, can wreak havoc on your skin and magnify the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Treat your skin while you sleep and see the results resonate throughout the day with Clinique’s Youth Surge Night Age Decelerating Moisture for Dry Combination Skin ($48.50).
Cult favorite, NARS Orgasm Blush, can only be matched by NARS’ new hit, the Orgasm Illuminator ($35). Forgo bronzer and use a dab of this in your foundation to get a perfect finish that hides drab winter skin.
If the packaging alone doesn’t get your attention with its mini mirror and futuristic styling, listen up: the Rouge G de Guerlain Le Brillant Jewel Lipstick Compact ($53) is made with shimmering ruby and mother-of-pearl powder all while being creamy and moisturizing.
Don’t forget your coif. With humidity down hair can look flat and limp. Maximize your cut (whether you have a bob, long layers, pixie, or blunt cut) and minimize the time spent styling with HerCut, a product meant to work with your hair’s style to make strands behave exactly as they should.
