Need a quick and easy boost to your blush? Check out Chanel’s Lumieres Magiques in Rose Harmony – perfect for a hot toddy flush or an ice princess sheen – you can use the colors alone to highlight and shade your face to Charlize perfection or just throw it on in a hurry for a blush to blush for.

If you’re yearning for Angelina’s pucker LipFusion’s latest creation XL was made for you. The new ingredient in this batch is hyaluronic acid which, combined with the dehydrated collagen of the original, fills in fine lines and means bigger and better lips. Don’t you just love science?

If you’re a glam lash girl, and if you aren’t you should really try it, Bourjois has an amazing new mascara that just came out called Maxi Frange which is French for “crazy thick, long eyelashes”….or something like that. Two steps, breathe – it’s worth it, entail working with a fiber based primer coat that separates and lengthens the lash and actually has a conditioner to hydrate as well and then working with the actual mascara that is creamy and full of fibers (that won’t fall or affect contacts) and poof! you will give Liza a run for her money.

For a quick and easy splash of color on the eyes pick up Awake’s new Liquid Eye Color Tint which is available in five soft colors (my favorite is the goldy Champagne). They stay all day, crease-free, and can be worn alone or as a base for your powder eyeshadows. You can even pop them on your cheekbones or shoulders for a soft sheen.

“Oil-free concealor” is something I get asked about all the time and its basically been a myth of the most cruel proportions – until now. Lorac’s new Undercover Lover, available in three shades, is full of ingredients that are meant to soothe, like vitamins A and E, green tea, and chamomile, instead of oils that clog. Eyeliss is a special bonus that reduces under eye puffiness and gives a lovely treatment inside the concealor.
