EDITOR’S All-Time Faves: Beauty Product Review

Story by Anna M. Park

  • Estée Lauder New Dimension Firm+Fill Eye System – Thanks to my mom, I’ve been using Estée Lauder since I was a teen. Their skin care is always impressive, and their latest contours eyes with a two-step system. The cooling gel cream tones and hydrates, while the shaping cream Þlls in Þne lines. $79, esteelauder.com
  • Drybar Detox Dry Conditioner – The geniuses who brought you blowouts on-the-go provide hair products as innovative as they are effective, from their purple shampoo to their latest — a dry conditioner for instant smoothing and texture. $23, thedrybar.com
  • Paula’s Choice Resist Super- Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 – Sunscreen and oily skin go handin- hand like, well, oil and water. But this mineral sunscreen not only protects with a whopping 13% zinc oxide, it goes on like silk and mattiÞes to boot.  $32, paulaschoice.com
  • Algenist Reveal Anti-Aging Serum Foundation and Concentrated Color Correcting Drops in Green – Biotech skin care brand Algenist harnesses the natural hues of microalgae, from blue to golden, in their new color correcting line, which makes covering my dark spots effortless. $48 and $38, algenist.com
  • Living Proof Instant Texture Mist – For a hair illiterate like me, this is the closest I’ll get to having a stylist on call. Each product in the collection does exactly what it claims, and more. Their texture spray should be called Instant Texture, Waves and Volume; it’s that good.  $27, livingproof.com
  • Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish – I consider this a bronzing BB cream for my legs — it moisturizes, covers imperfections, reßects light and is water-resistant until I wash it off. $45, sephora.com
  • M.A.C Versicolour Stain in Energy Shot – With cool collaborations and daring shades that make a rookie feel like a makeup artist, M.A.C never fails to excite. Some of my fave lip colors are by M.A.C, and their latest is a serious contender: an oilinfused lip glossmeets- stain that lasts.  $24, maccosmetics.com
  • J.One Jelly Pack – When I need to look extra good, I use this genius morning mask. Created by Korean actress Ha Jiwon, this Spanxfor- your-face goes on a bit tacky, but then melts into skin, creating a taut veil that “grips” your makeup all day.  $42, glowrecipe.com
  • La Mer The Perfecting Treatment – Everything La Mer makes is perfection, and their latest is no exception: a satiny skin treatment that creates a softfocus canvas so that makeup looks amazing.  $240, lamer.com
  • Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age – British skin care company Deciem’s high-tech, wellformulated serums saved my skin this past winter, including this one, which features Þve different forms of hyaluronic acid to get deeper into skin’s layers. $38, deciem.com
