        Editor’s Pick
        WINNER 2015

        Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Lacquer 

        It looks like a lip gloss, feels like a lip gloss, but one look in the mirror—hours later—will tell you that this lacquer is a heck of a lot more. A generous splash of vitamin E helps keep color in place without any shriveling.

        Cover FX Blemish Treatment Concealer

        Unless you read the fine print, you’d never know this elegant stick, which comes in 10 shades, is spiked with skin enhancers. Salicylic acid and bisabolol zap acne and inflammation, yet the formula blends and covers as well as any unmedicated version we’ve tried.

        Remington 3-in-1 Styler

        Editor’s Pick
        WINNER 2015

        Remington 3-in-1 Styler

        The cords of your flatiron, curler, and dryer shouldn’t resemble Clark Griswold’s Christmas lights. This multitasker can help you declutter. Two detachable sleeves—one rounded, one studded with spikes—transform this straightener into a curler and a volumizer. But here’s the thing: All three functions actually work, meaning you can be Gisele one day and Ariana Grande the next.

        Editor’s Pick
        WINNER 2015

        Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray

        Like a push-up bra for lackluster strands, this translucent blend of polymers and white lupine protein lifts, plumps, and perks. Even better, unlike most volumizers that have to go on sopping strands, this one is meant for dry ones.

        Editor’s Pick
        WINNER 2015

        Estée Lauder Little Black Primer

        Wear the tinted formula alone for subtle definition or layer it under your go-to mascara for fluttery volume. Swept on top of another formula, it works like a little raincoat, waterproofing your lashes.

        Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield SPF 30 PA+++

        Editor’s Pick
        WINNER 2015

        Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield SPF 30 PA+++

        Some sunscreens claim to be invisible, but, well ... they’re not. Murad is so confident about its claim that the formula actually comes in a transparent vial. But sunscreen is just the start. Peptides encourage collagen production, while black currant and rosemary improve overall texture.

        Ciaté Geltox Starter Kit

        Gel color options generally leave much to be desired. But this topcoat ups the ante, lending any polish the longevity of a gel. Paint as usual, sweep on the clear lacquer, then hold under the included LED for a minute. Chip-free tips last up to three weeks.

        Editor’s Pick
        WINNER 2015

        Rita Hazan Weekly Remedy

        Hair always looks happiest the day it gets colored, mostly because stylists break out the big-gun conditioners to minimize the damage of dyes. This duo—a cuticle-opening blend, allowing for deeper penetration of hydrators, followed by amoisturizing rice protein—replicates that same effect,only at home on a weekly basis.

        Sarah Potempa Beachwaver S1

        Spinning electronic devices near the hair sounds like trouble, no? That’s what you might think until you try this self-rotating barrel. Hair smoothly wraps around the ceramic wand, making defined curls or loose waves. Two speeds, an adjustable temperature gauge, and arrows to control direction eliminate burns and impatience.
