Everything You Need This Month, Picked for You by our Beauty Director

Want to know what our Executive Beauty Editor, Elise Minton, can’t be without these days? She shares the inside scoop on her best new recommendations and what should be taking up prime real estate in your beauty cabinet.


Pantene Expert Dry Defy Intense Hydration Shampoo

“I can always count on Pantene to make my hair feel like a new head of hair after just one use. This one is no different. After washing and conditioning with it, my hair felt as soft as a cashmere sweater—and the compliments that I got was all I need to know that this stuff works!” ($8.99), pantene.com



Nyx Be Gone Makeup Wipes

“For the most part, I’m a fan of using a cotton pad and makeup remover to get off whatever’s left on my eyes at the end of the day. That was until I got my hands on these wipes. They don’t sting my eyes nor do they leave my lids greasy. And they are awesome for quickly fixing shadow fall out and when I get a little too heavy handed with the eyeliner.” ($5), nyxcosmetics.com


Restorsea Revitalzing Scalp Treatment

“Whenever my scalp gets dry and itchy, I reach for this treatment, which gives instant relief. It never makes my hair feel dry or crunchy and it gives a hint of volume, too.”  ($150), restorsea.com


Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in Gold Ashes

“Hands down, this my favorite product for brightening the inner corner of the eye and adding a hint of blendable shimmer to the lid. It’s so creamy and downright gorgeous.” ($38), Sephora.com


YSL Volupte Tint-in-Oil in Undress Me

“This gloss nourishes, provides a bit of pretty color, isn’t sticky and smells so good (like watermelon). I love the applicator, too, which makes it super easy to cover your entire lips with one fell swoop.” ($32), yslbeauty.us


Meder Beauty Crème Blepharoplasty Night

“I recently experienced a microchanneling (the little sister to microneedling) facial with these products and was gifted some to take home. My favorite by far was the Crème Blepharoplasty Night. The texture is unique—it’s a mix between a thick gel and a serum—and it helped take down puffiness under my eyes.” ($108), www.mederusa.com


Vintage by Jessica Liebskind Superglam Mascara

“The name says it all. This mascara delivers ultra glamorous lashes every single time. And, the more it’s layered on, the thicker and darker my lashes look.” ($21), vintagecosmetics.com
