The 20 Best Beauty Products

Redbook

This year, it seems the beauty pros were thinking in — and out of — the box. Here, we highlight the best kits that meet all needs, from big to small, as well as innovative products that work smarter, not harder.

Fekkai Salon Hair Color
The biggest name in hair salons brings you gorgeous at-home color plus a true salon-style experience: You mix the color components using the bowl and brush provided — just like the pros do — for thorough blending and even color application. (Cosmetology license not required.) ($30)

 

Revlon Custom Creations Foundation
Your skin color changes throughout the year, from the self-tanned heights of summer to the pastiest depths of winter. This bottle of base has five settings, so you can adjust the color — making it a tad darker or lighter — to suit whichever skin you're in. (Starting at $11.79)

Easy Spa Treatments You Can Do at Home

Amazing Makeovers from Celebrity Pros

Jergens Natural Glow Express
The first and still best-in-class gradual self-tanner now gives you more brown for your buck. You'll achieve full-fledged bronzed-goddess status in only three days, and still no oops-I-missed-a-spot moments. (Starting at $5.65)

Sephora Scent Sampler
Fragrance isn't an easy gift to give — even when you're gifting yourself. Rather than decide on the spot, try all 10 deluxe samples of Sephora's best-selling scents and then use the enclosed gift certificate to treat yourself to the scent you liked best. ($50)

Urban Decay Brow Box
Arm yourself for the perpetual battle of the brows. Two shades of powder create a natural fill-in color, while handy tweezers eliminate strays and soft wax keeps stubborn hairs firmly in place. ($29)

Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller
Pack your bags: What the rolling suitcase did for luggage this rolling dispenser does for under-eye circles — it makes them lighter to tow and easier to stow. The cool metal tip of this de-puffing pen delivers caffeine, glycerin, and Pro Vitamin B5.
(Starting at $13.49)

Waterford Parfum Lismore
It's hard to say which we think is prettier: the romantic floral scent or the crystal bottle it comes in. When you've used up the fragrance, it can hold a different kind of floral — use it as a keepsake bud vase. (Starting at $50.06)

 

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Creme Serum Overnight Repair Formula
Chamomile extract and quick-absorbing moisturizers in this lightweight cream do all the heavy hair repair while you lie back and catch some z's. The next morning, wake to lovelier-than-ever locks (and a clean pillowcase too). (Starting at $8.09)

Hai Elite Iron Glove
Psst! No, that’s not us trying to get your attention. It’s the all-too-familiar sound of curling-iron-on-skin contact. Bandage no more: This heat resistant glove protects against beauty related burns. (Starting at $16.70)

Ken Paves Healthy Hair Boost Up Color Drops
Fading haircolor is a fading memory, thanks to these pigment-packed drops. Add a few to your conditioner or styling product for a blast of color that rinses away the next time you wash.
(Starting at $39.95)

 

Pond's Clean Sweep Age Defying Wet Cleansing Towelettes
Buff away the day's debris and fight aging with these handy wipes. The unique quilted surface removes every stitch of makeup (even waterproof mascara!) for a squeaky-clean glow, while retinol and alpha hydroxy acids smooth fine lines and wrinkles. (Starting at $2.99)

Gillette Venus Embrace
Talk about smooth sailing. This curve-hugging shaver has five moisture-wrapped blades that glide along even the toughest shaving spots. (Ankles and knees, anyone?) The result: baby-soft, nick-free skin. (Starting at $7.25)

Tarte Purse Your Lips Limited Edition T5 Super Fruit Complex Lip Gloss Clutch
"Suckers for great packaging" doesn't even begin to describe us. But the glosses inside are as fab as the vintage-looking clutch: nine shimmering and sheer shades loaded with lip-refining antioxidants. ($39)

 

Matrix Biolage Volumizing Whipped Mousse
It's all about the nozzle. The same tip you'd find on a can of whipped cream delivers a thick puff of product that doesn't dissolve as soon as it hits your hands, which means more plumping ingredients are delivered to your lift-deprived roots. (Starting at $12.49)

Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen
These nail polish pens, with their easy application, quick-drying formulas, and high-gloss finishes, undeniably have the write stuff. (Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves!) (Starting at $7.75)

Bliss-Philips Bikini Perfect Deluxe
It's your toolbox for DIY landscaping. This stubble-busting, at-home grooming kit has every shaver attachment you'll ever need -- even a tiny trimmer for those tight spots. ($49.99)

 

Eucerin Calming Body Wash Daily Shower Oil
The mere thought of a hot shower is enough to make severe dry-skin sufferers itch. But instead of stripping your skin, this daily wash delivers omega-3 oils that help repair skin's protective barrier. (Starting at $7.49)

Dior Capture Totale Foundation
Come on, who doesn't love a two-for-one deal? This antiaging foundation boasts a wrinkle-fighting, skin-brightening serum mixed in with it's sheer, skin perfecting pigments — now you can correct as you cover. (Starting at $68.85)

 

Lancome Oscillation Mascara
Good, good, good, good vibrations: If this mascara could sing, this would be its anthem. This mascara uses cool micropulsing technology that helps the brush get deeper into the lash line, separating and evenly coating lashes with a plumping formula. ($34)

Benefit Powderflage
Using "hey, look over there!" light-diffusing technology, this pink powder brightens up the under-eye area and softens fine lines without piling on the product. It's the alternative that concealer-phobes have been waiting for. ($28.00)

    • Dear Abby: Mother-in-law pops in without warning

      DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law has begun doing the “pop-in.” My husband passive-aggressively hinted that he wished he had known she was coming over. Her response was, “I’m your mother; I don’t need to let you know when I’m coming over.” I regard this as total disrespect. She has done this plenty of times — including popping in when I was having a dinner with my parents and children, which made her mad because she and my father-in-law hadn’t been invited. She did the pop-in again last week. My husband, four children and I were about to sit down to a family dinner when she rang the doorbell. I didn’t have enough food for her and my father-in-law, which made us all uncomfortable. She made a sarcastic

      When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz welcomed a son into the world, so did the characters they played on I Love Lucy. Lucy Ricardo gave birth to "Little Ricky" in season two. But real-life Lucy and Desi didn't want their baby on screen for obvious reasons, so they cast a wide net in search of a set of similar-looking twins. (Having two children alternate for one role helps shows adhere to child-labor laws that limit camera time for the industry's youngest actors.) Desi Arnaz chose15-month-old Joe and Mike Mayer based on a photo he'd seen of them at a Twins Club picnic, where their mother was president, the Idaho-Press Tribune reports. The newspaper caught up with the men, age 64, who both live in

    • Here’s Why the Hip-Exposing Bodysuit Could Replace the Crop Top for It-Girls in 2017

      For It girls these days there’s no such thing as too much skin exposure. Cut-outs, crop tops, naked dresses—the likes of Kim Kardashian West and Bella Hadid have tried them all. But recently, a new erogenous zone has emerged: the hip bone. Last year, Mrs. Yeezy was spotted in a sheer leotard and athletic trouser, while Gigi’s little sister was papped in a deep V-neck bodysuit and Adidas tracksuit. Both times, they wore their pants low enough to flash their ilium at us. And it looks as though designers have been paying attention. Nina Ricci’s creative director Guillaume Henry gave us a one-shoulder knit bodysuit with a belted wide-leg trouser for Pre-Fall, while up-and-comer Heron Preston included
