Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush
Just a dab of this totally affordable blush washes cheeks in a soft, just-worked-out glow—but be warned: its revolutionary spongy-to-the touch formula is so addictive that we found ourselves looking any excuse to just keep on applying it.

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense
We can’t imagine many instances where we’d be happy about being called ‘plump’. But when it comes to our skin—well, that’s another story entirely. And there’s nothing quite like this gel-cream for plumping up our dry winter skin without even a hint of greasiness.

SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF Gel
The gel-formula of this anti-oxidant-packed product is just as potent as sticky serums, and a couple quick pumps smooth on to spark cell turnover and collagen stimulation with SkinCeutical’s arsenal of phloretin, vitamin C and ferulic acid.

L’Oreal Voluminous False Lashes Mascara
Honesty’s usually a virtue, but when it comes to our lashes, we have absolutely no issues with hoodwinking everyone we know. Which is precisely why we’re head-over-heels for the sculpting fibers in this new mascara, which scaffold on extra length that’s utterly believable.

Anew Genics Treatment Cream
“When the cell is more active it makes more collagen, more elastin and more hyaluronic acids -- when that happens you are reversing the aging process,” explains Cheryl Karcher, M.D., Board-certified dermatologist and professional consultant for Avon of the theory behind the brand’s cutting-edge face cream. Anew Genics, she says, will stimulate the activity of the illusive Youth Gene and encourage skin to stop acting its age.

Sachajuan Normal Hair Shampoo and Conditioner
Our hair is anything but normal. Dry and over-processed, it almost never earns compliments. So when a friend asked us if we had gotten a blow-out after nothing more than a standard wash and dry with a new shampoo, we knew we’d stumbled on the holy grail of hair care. Formulated with Ocean Silk Technology, Swedish brand Sashajuan’s products add in the perfect amount of volume, moisture and shine.

Laqa & Co. Nail Polish Pens

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye
A few too many glasses of this, a few too few hours of that and we’re pretty much guaranteed to wake up with under-eyes looking as dark and stormy as the witching hour itself. Two drops of Kiehl’s butcher’s-broom-infused elixir, however, puts a hex on puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles--while we sleep it all off.

Jergens Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer
Sure, one of our favorite things about winter is covering up in forgiving woolens and jeggings—but just because the weather's turned cool doesn’t mean we want our skin underneath to take a break from looking its beach-season best. Fortified with elastin and collagen, this super-moisturizing body moisturizer is designed to tone skin and smooth out the look of cellulite.
