AMANDA’S TOP 2013 PICKS

Makeup

CHANEL HOLIDAY COLLECTION
Joues Contraste in Accent
Le Vernis in Rouge Rubis

Accent is the perfect blush for winter–pink with bronze to warm up paler skin tones

CLARINS
Be Long Mascara

“The main reason why I love this mascara so is the incredible brush (which I learned is really what differentiates a mascara from the pack). It has a small plastic brush so you can really get in there, and it grabs on to each lash with a bit of tension, so you get that long, defined lash, never any clumps. “ 

VICHY
Dermablend Setting Powder

I apply it before doing my eye makeup in the morning so that the two minutes of waiting time goes by without noticing it. The result is a more even and matte complexion that lasts for hours.”

LANCOME
Effacernes Concealer

It has the perfect amount of thickness and pigment for coverage but never ever clumps or gets stuck in fine lines. It just. doesn’t. budge. Just smooth it on and never worry about your makeup moving around again.”

DIOR
Airflash Foundation

The be-all and end-all of foundations. It has the ever-so-slightest pearlescent sheen to it that gives you a magic glow and watch as it erases all unevenness and blemishes.”

URBAN DECAY 
Naked Palette

I shouldn’t have been so blasé, this palette is actually amazing. Every single colour I have tried looks great. Every. Single. One. And! They are super long-lasting. The colour stays true all day long, without a primer “


Skincare

KIEHL’S
Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque

I woke up with a more younger-looking, plumped up face. The skin around my eyes looked so much better–the lines had faded, and the skin was smooth. My skin had a more even and luminous tone. “

SK-II 
Masks

If you have the money, these are really a great investment for your face, they will make a noticeable difference in your skin. “

BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE 
P50

“I must admit, at first the smell put me off, but you see the results. My chin acne is pretty much gone now, and my skin is clearer and has a more translucent, glowing quality to it.” 

NUXE
Reve de Miel Lip Balm

“The consistency is quite thick, but not sticky at all, and you barely need any of the honey and grapefruit-scented formula to save your lips from that tight, dry feeling.”

REN
Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

It decongests the pores and works well to help fade post-acne scarring, blackheads, blemishes and sun-damaged skin.”

AURELIA PROBIOTIC SKINCARE
Miracle Cleanser
Cell Repair Oil

“The aromatic cleanser throughly cleanses the skin, but leaves it feeling soft and supple. For an extra hydrating/anti-aging kick, a few drops of the Cell Repair Night Oil boosts your skin’s ability to repair your skin overnight.”

Hair

KERASTASE
Mousse Nutri-Sculpt

“It creates such a smooth, voluminous blow dry, without weighing hair down. Seriously–your hair looks like it came from a shampoo commercial.” 

MATRIX
Heat Resist

Overall, this line holds my blowout longer (3 days!), fights frizz and most importantly to me, doesn’t feel like I have any product in my hair. Winners all around, and at a great price.”



Body

KIEHL’S
Nashi Blossom and Pink Grapefruit Body Lotion
On my wedding day, I was told by 4 different people that I smelled amazing (before dancing started, mind you), all because of this product.”
