Tom Ford's first seasonal beauty collection, a soap-sponge hybrid, and more stellar 2012 beauty standouts.
Spring 2012 marked Tom Ford's first seasonal beauty collection which featured Creamy Eye Shadows, a Lip Lacquer, and four Nail Lacquers — all in molten metallic shades (gold, burgundy, bronze).
Clarisonic is hands down the one beauty item I could not live — even a day — without. This year, the brand launched the Aria, which is designed to be travel friendly, has three speeds, a real-time battery-life indicator, USB-enabled pLink charger, and a drying stand that converts to a charging station when coupled with the pLink charger.
Soap + Sponge, $4.49
It's a soap! It's a sponge! It's genius — and it's under $5.
Dolce & Gabbana
Velvety smooth shadows, cougar-licious lipsticks, a leopard bronzer, and more made Dolce & Gabbana's new Animalier collection one of the most fun beauty buys this year.
Whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, Elizabeth Arden has a regimen for you. Every single product I tried from their dry line more than delivered. The day cream is formulated with SPF 15 — an essential, even in the winter.
Years of research and countless tests ensured that this new lineup of skincare products is lightweight, fast absorbing, and effective for all ethnicities.
Parfum d'Extase, $85
Gorgeous. Here's to hoping this is the first of many Marchesa-branded beauty products.
Whether you opt for the moisturizer, the spot treatment, the pads, or the cleanser, everything in this collection works effectively to help clear skin without drying it out or imparting a cloying odor.
Yes to Carrots
Gentle but effective, these eye pads will work to cool and alleviate puffiness while they remove makeup and other residue.
