Virtue Purifying Leave-In Conditioner
If your hair hasn't been cooperating since the weather has started getting colder, try using a solid leave-in conditioner. May we suggest Virtue Labs' new purifying one? The lightweight mist detangles, reduces flyaways, and boosts shine all while keeping hair hydrated.
Pat McGrath Labs BlitzTrance Lipstick
Pat McGrath, the legendary makeup artist responsible for the beautiful, but impractical glitter lip, has finally blessed us with a more practical way to wear the sparkly stuff. Her BlitzTrance Lipsticks have a full-coverage, iridescent finish thanks to the tiny pearl-pigments infused into them. The six available shades range from classic red to magenta, and come in a tube that are equally as sparkly as the lipstick itself.
Maybelline Snapscara Washable Mascara
Maybelline is aiming to dethrone its iconic pink-and-green tube of mascara with this new clump-proof formula. This wax-free mascara doesn't smudge when you get sweaty (or cry), but is still a breeze to take off. Removing it with a little bit of warm water is so simple, it's like snapping your fingers — get it?
Huda Beauty The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette
Huda Kattan went all out with her brand's first-ever nude eyeshadow palette. Case in point: it includes 18 shades in three different finishes. Swipe on one of the matte, metallic, or glitter shadows alone, or mix and match them.
Rodial Retinol 10% Booster Drops
Retinol is the wunderkind of skincare ingredients. Reducing fine lines, dark spots, and acne are a few of the many things its good at. The only problem is that retinol can be extremely drying — especially if you have sensitive skin. That's where Rodial's drops come in. Add a couple to your favorite moisturizer to get all of its benefits without the irritation. If you're a already a regular retinol user, apply it on its own once or twice a week.
Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips
Chapped lips and matte lipstick don't always mix, which is why there's no better time of year than the beginning of winter for Charlotte Tilbury to launch her first-ever glossy lipstick. The new formula is has a high-shine finish that's super-nourishing for dry lips. Even better: You don't have to completely ditch your favorite Charlotte Tilbury matte shades until spring. Superstar Lips comes in a few of her cult-favorite matte shades like "Pillow Talk.
L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition All-Over Balm Moisturizer
Don't write this moisturizer off because it has "honey" in its name. The lightweight formula is anything but sticky. Instead, it's extremely hydrating and relieves skin that feels tight and uncomfortable from dryness. Plus, its mix of nourishing and antioxidant oils leave skin glowy.
Kiehl's Love Oil For Lips
Fact: It's impossible to get through winter without a solid lip balm. Luckily, Kiehl's just dropped this oil. Although it is technically an oil, the treatment leaves lips feeling soft and smooth again without feeling greasy. And if any of the high-shine colors aren't your thing, the oil comes in an untinted option, too.
Kristin Ess Soft Wave Pivoting Wand
If you follow celebrity hairstylist on Kristin Ess on Instagram, you're probably familiar with her product line. Now, the stylist behind Lucy Hale and Lauren Conrad's beachy waves has added hot tools to her brand. The range includes beveled flat irons, blow dryers, and a root tamer, but this pivoting curling iron is a standout. Its barrel can be adjusted 90-degrees so that creating waves or bends in the hair is really as easy as that tutorial you just watched says it is. The best part? Every tool in the line is under $100.
Ouai North Bondi Eau de Parfum
The internet loves celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin's haircare line because the products perform, but their addictive scents are also a major selling point. If you love the smell of Ouai's best-selling Wave Spray, you're in luck because it's now a bona fide fragrance called Bondi Beach. The brand listened to its fans' demands, bottled up its products' four scents, and turned them into full-sized fragrances named after Atkin's favorite cities.
