A brush that won't damage your strands, long-lasting nail lacquer and more stellar 2013 beauty launches.
Jasmin Rouge is a perennial bestseller for Tom Ford so this year he fittingly launched two lipsticks and two polishes inspired by the scent. Among them is an incredibly long-lasting crimson polish called Shameless.
Nip + Fab
Body Blends, all under $10
Nip + Fab is Rodial's lower priced line and with the launch of Body Blends, they've outdone themselves. Nothing is over $10 and the line includes body washes, body lotions, a bath soak, a muscle-relaxing body gel and a body scrub. While there aren't as many actives as in Rodial products, which explains the big price difference, the products are effective, smell great and have cool packaging. The newest range is divided into three collection: Yoga Blend, Energy Boost and Detox Blend.
Cote d'Azure, $22
Spritz this on dry hair any time of day to neutralize odor with Oribe's signature fresh scent and minimize static. Your hair will look smooth and smell great even when you don't have time to wash it.
Marc Jacobs introduced his much-anticipated beauty collection this year and among the standouts is his lip moisturizer, which softens lips while protecting them from UV rays.
They transformed our faces and bodies with the Clarisonic and now they've introduced the Pedi to bring the pedicure experience home (though select salons will be using the Pedi as part of their pedicure service). Much more effective than manual exfoliation, this is the perfect kit to keep your feet looking fantastic in between pedicure appointments.
3-Step System, $39.95
It's astounding how effective yet inexpensive Proactiv+ is given the amount of money the brand spends on marketing (everyone from Adam Levine to P. Diddy appears in its infomercials), but there's no denying the brand's products efficacy and this year they were reformulated — for the first time since their launch — to be more effective than ever.
Epice Marine, $240
Love it or hate it, like all of Hermes' fragrances, their newest one, Epice Marine, is distinctive and these days given the sea of fragrance launches, that's the most impressive thing you can say about a scent.
Yes to Cucumbers
Suncare, prices vary
Affordable, natural and made almost entirely of organic ingredients, Yes to launched a slew of new products this year including its first-ever SPF range.
Moroccanoil has quickly expanded beyond haircare and now has a number of ancillary products. Its latest is a handcrafted candle made with the brand's signature, fresh scent.
Flex Paddle Brush, $24
Hair is at its weakest when wet, so while it’s tempting to brush right after jumping out of the shower, this is not something that’s commonly recommended – until now. Keratin Complex’s Flex Paddle Brush is made with pliable rubber cushion and super soft, flexible bristles so it works just as well on dry as it does on wet hair.
