Many of us have that drawer/shelf/closet/entire room of acquired beauty products.
Some remain unopened, yet to be discovered. Some we’ve tried and haven’t bothered with since. And others have become as consistent in our daily lives as a text to our bestie.
Well, in case you’re not using the right ones, here are 12 beauty products that could (almost) change a woman’s life.
Stay tuned, gents – we’ll get to you next.
At some point, you’ve refused to cut your hair for months on end because you were “trying to grow it out”…until a trusted girlfriend ordered you to because it had become so disgustingly ratty at the ends. With Viviscal, your hair will grow noticeably thicker and quicker. Actually.
2. Consonant Skincare’s Hydrextreme
Especially with the colder and drier months ahead, all it takes is a tiny drop of Consonant Skincare’s Hyrextreme to add a major dose of rehydration (and combat aging in the process) to your face. That’s why it comes in a teeny-tiny jar, perfect for travelling.
3. Ours by Cheryl Hickey Anything Balm
Cheryl Hickey’s new line of skincare products includes the multi-functional Anything Balm. It’s great for the face before braving the elements of a Canadian winter, to tame flywaways, to soften hands and feet, or to under light makeup for a dewy glow that results in a natural, weekend look.
4. Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads
Almay’s eye makeup remover pads make it so much more enticing to remove makeup after a big night on the town. Seriously. One wipe reveals all evidence of a sexy smoky eye completely. They also refresh your overworked eyes (especially the soothing and de-puffing option). The small, circular pads also come in a case that will fit in your makeup bag when you’re staying at someone else’s place.
5. Micro Nail and Micro Pedi
Who has the time to maintain a perfectly polished and salon fresh mani and pedi all the time? For a quick fix, the Micro Nail electric polisher buffs and shines in seconds sans nail file, producing Saturday night-ready, shiny, natural nails. This is thanks to two patented rollers that rotate at 360 degrees and up to 1,800 times per minute. To tackle those rough bottoms, the Micro Pedi works just as much magic on your feet.
6. Tarte Cosmetics Energy LipSurgence
The new Tarte Cosmetics Energy LipSurgence is our final touch to a natural but feature-enhancing look. The skintuitive™ formula responds to your skin’s natural pH and energy, giving you a personalized tint that’s your own unique shade of pink and works well day or night, either on its own or under a gloss. The best part about it is its staying powder. As in, you can makeout for hours in it and your lips will retain the tint.
7. Better Than Sex Mascara by Two Faced
You won’t need to even consider fake lashes with Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara. Inspired by a woman’s curves, the hourglass-shaped brush was designed with extra stiff bristles to enhance the performance of the carbon black, collagen-fueled mascara. Your better-than-sex eyes will become more mysteriously dramatic with each coat.
8. Smashbox BB Cream Eyes
We rely on the BB Eye Cream especially when early mornings follow late nights. Not only does it make you look alive by covering the look of dark circles (both instantly and over time), it fills any fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the look of puffiness and makes a difference people won’t miss – either in person or in pictures.
9. Tangle Teezer
So it’s not a product, per say, but we need to recognize the wonders of Tangle Teezer in our every day life. The palm-sized detangling brush is an innovative lifesaver that works to remove tangles as it dries hair, or adds shine and revamps style in already dry hair.
10. Aveda Smooth Infusion
Especially on rainy fall days, our go-to is Aveda and their Smooth Infusion line of products. Keeping our hair sleek and straight has become much less swear-inducing with the line, which is proven to not only progressively straighten curls with each use, but also protect your hair against frizz.
11. Peptalash by Indeed Labs
With Peptalash, you can forget about annoying fake lashes or expensive eyelash extensions. In some magic formula that’s designed to make your day once results start to show, three peptides work together to make your lashes longer, thicker, and fuller in two weeks. And it’s as easy as applying a liquid liner twice a day.
The natural look is back in full force. That’s why Nudestix challenges women to #GoNudeButBetter and embrace a natural look and their own unique beauty. The Nudestix line can help enhance your natural look with their simple collection of simple-to-use makeup crayons that cover (and perfect) all the basics.
