The 5 Go-To Products our Executive Beauty Editor Currently Loves
By Elise Minton Tabin |
Here are five new beauty products that I can’t live without…and you probably won’t be able to either.
I love a good eye shadow palette, and the Urban Decay NAKED ones are some of my favorites. The latest release, NAKED Smoky ($54), has a dozen shades that can be mixed and matched together to create hundreds of variations on the smoky eye that are perfect for both day and night.
Surprisingly, the MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Nourishing Water Proof Foundation ($33) is a heavy-duty coverage, oil-free foundation that leaves my skin looking so flawless and smooth. My imperfections are camouflaged so well that I forget about them—until I wash my face. It also doesn’t shift in color or turn oily, and it literally repels water from my skin.
In true La Mer fashion, the newest addition, La Mer Genaissance de La Mer—The Serum Essence ($620), is a super-luxe, feels-so-good-on-my-skin serum that works to turn back the hands of time. Loaded with small-batch Crystal Miracle Broth (crystals that form in the La Mer Miracle Broth), it leaves my skin smoother, softer and hydrated.
Some health foods can lack taste and flavor—not these. Made from cacao, loaded with coconut oil and honey and rolled in hemp seeds, GoodBites Raw Cacao Truffle Jar ($10) satisfies my sweet tooth without all the empty calories.
Every now and then I like to switch up my entire fragrance wardrobe and go from the tried-and-true scents to something entirely new. This time around I’ve added Bond No. 9 Harrods Rose to the mix ($270), a sexy floral that blends white rose, musk and tuberose together for the perfect feminine scent.
