I always am really excited to open my mailbox and find a fresh glossy new magazine, but for about the last decade (yeesh!) I’ve always particularly loved the annual Best Beauty Buys issue of InStyle Mag. It’s full of unbiased reviews, cool truly helpful tips, and for many products they give the best recommendation for the high end version, and a lesser priced similar option. Some of the winners make repeat appearances year after year, and others are fresh on the market. This issue was their 18th annual edition of the issue, and this years goodies that I’m anxious to try out include Tarte Lipsurgence, CND Stickey nail polish base coat, and the Nars Yachiyo Kabuki blush brush.
As for my own current favorite products as of late – I’m loving the L’Oreal Studio Secrets primer, Bare Minerals bronzer, the Japonesque eyelash curler (this is a new amazing discovery, and a major change up from the Shu Uemura that has been my standby for years), and John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume line of products. I’d love to know – what are your current beauty faves?
