Best Face Forward
E.L.F. Cosmetics Modern Metals Blush and Highlighter Palette, $12 at E.L.F. Cosmetics
With three long-lasting matte blushes and three insanely flattering highlighters, you better believe we did a double take when we saw this price. Such a good (and gorgeous!) value.
Mugler Take Me Out Cologne, $70 at Nordstrom
This fresh floral was specifically designed to energize your senses. And while we don’t suggest you cancel your caffeine habit just yet, the sparkling blend of lavender, orange blossom and shiso leaf is certainly the prettiest wake-up call we’ve ever found.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Boosting Serum, $11.99 at Ulta Beauty
If you’ve ever bemoaned your thin lashes, listen up because help is here. This daily solution goes on before mascara and has arginine, acid proteins and provitamin B5 to fortify and condition the lashes you already have to make them healthier, stronger and just plain better.
Amika Reset Exfoliating Jelly Shampoo, $25 at Sephora
Your scalp is pretty much the easiest thing to ignore, but you’ll know when you do (the itching! the dryness! the buildup!). Luckily, taking care of it couldn’t be easier now. This blend of sea salt, charcoal, pink clay and salicylic acid detoxes and deep cleans your scalp and hair all at once.
Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder, $30 at Chanel
Meet the matte lipstick that looks and feels good. Starting out as a thin liquid so you can apply it easily for excellent coverage, it dries quickly, leaving a soft, barely-there feel. A little gives a sheer look, a little more yields a more intense matte effect.
GHD Platinum+ Professional Performance 1″ Styler, $249 at Sephora
If flatirons had class ranks, this one would surely be valedictorian. Because it is smart. Thanks to “predictive technology,” the plates stay at a consistent, optimum temperature, which means you’ll have less damage, faster styling and super sleek results. Sounds like an A+ to us.
Kopari Coconut Shower Oil, $28 at Kopari
If your skin gets drier in cooler weather, well, join the club. And this club is stepping up our shower game with shower oil. We love this sulfate-free formula, which smells sweet and vacation-y and leaves skin hydrated and silky soft.
Skin Care Hero
