It’s the middle of winter and your skin just hasn’t been cooperating. Your winter moisturizer is so thick that your makeup won’t stay on, or maybe your moisturizer isn’t enough. Maybe you’re just getting the winter blues and want to try something new! Here are 5 picks to try:
5. CLINIQUE Pore Refining Solutions Correcting Serum
Find it at Sephora
This serum can be used with moisturizer after washing and toning skin, or for oilier skin types, as it works as a light moisturizer itself. This moisturizes and refines pores for all skin types, and makes your skin feel/look like pure SILK. Protects your skin from the harsh wind, lasts all day, and stays under makeup.
4. Maybelline BB Cream
Find it at Maybelline
If you’re indecisive, you can own more than one type (ahem…). These won’t put a hole in your wallet, and they work great for days when you want to look good, but you don’t want to spend a lot of time doing your makeup. Depending on your skin concern, each type has its own advantages.
3. Crabtree and Evelyn Nail Polish
Find it at Beauty.com
A polish for those who want more quality but with a single-digit price tag. The Opal color, pictured above, is a pretty wintry color and is and highly recommended.
2. Black Radiance Body Building Mascara
Find it at Black Radiance
A surprising steal! This mascara compares to Lancôme’s Hypnôse Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara, for almost a tenth of the price. It builds amazing volume with a feathery look. Great pick for a snow bunny look!
1. Colourpop Cosmetics
Find it at Colourpop.com
You read that right: the whole company. Colourpop is a fairly new company that offers extremely high quality products for an extremely low price. Their products range from your usual eyeshadows, to the hardest-to-find shades of lipstick (check out Dr. M!). Their ultra matte lippies are fan favorites, and for a good reason.
