The 28 best new beauty products this season Add to ...

The fashionista nail shades

Tom Ford Nail Lacquer, $35 at Holt Renfrew (www.holtrenfrew.com)

“Runway watchers have been waiting for this collection and for good reason. It consists of 16 colours that each hit on a trend for fall – neutrals, saturated pinks and reds and deep jewel tones, to name a few– while delivering rich, even coverage.” – Marilisa Racco

The super-luxe lip balm

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Mightiest Maraschino and Grandest Grape, $19 each at Clinique counters across Canada (visit www.clinique.com for locations)

“The ultimate in taxicab makeup, these chunky crayons have the same nourishing properties (shea butter and jojoba-seed oil) as the original Chubby but contain enough pigment to create a statement lip.” – Ally Dean

The three-in-one lipstick

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain Rebel Nudes in 104 and 107, $36 each at Holt Renfrew, Hudson’s Bay (www.thebay.com), Sephora (www.sephora.com) and Murale (www.murale.ca).

“Earning a beauty hat trick, this lip colour combines the shine of a gloss, opacity of a lipstick and lasting power of a stain. It wins additional points for a luminous pearl finish and a soft-bristled brush that makes for easy application.” – AD

The most innovative bullet

Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in 301 and 602, $38 each at Holt Renfrew, Hudson’s Bay and Sephora.

“The creamy, gel-like formula of these semi-sheer lipsticks – which also happen to be the first CC lipsticks on the market – contains a Melting Cream complex to nourish lips the way a balm does while leaving behind subtle but fade-proof colour.” – AD

The longest-lasting lacquer

CND Vinylux Colour Coat and Top Coat, $11.90 each at salons across Canada (visit www.cnd.com for retailers)

“This system promises high shine and a week’s worth of wear thanks to its ProLight technology, which makes the colour and top coat toughen with exposure to natural light. A mere eight minutes of drying time gave me seven days of shiny, polished, chip-free digits.” – MR

The most wearable lip gloss

Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl in Truth or Dare, $34 at Sephora

“This juicy lip gloss gives a pop of colour with a high-shine finish that’s smooth, not sticky. Added bonus: It smells like mint-chocolate ice cream.” – AD

The best of the BBs

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream, $54 through www.guerlain.com

“This isn’t your typical BB cream for two reasons: One is silk and the other is linen. The formula contains fibres from both of these luxurious fabrics, giving it a delicate texture that seems to melt into the skin, and contains hyaluronic acid, which offers all-day hydration.” – Bahar Niramwalla

The mystery spritz

Hermès Jour d’Hermès Eau de parfum spray, $165 for 85 ml through www.hermes.com

“Hermès won’t divulge the exact notes that this mix contains, but the intrigue is only part of its cachet. Its uber-feminine bouquet of gardenia, white flowers and green notes (whatever they are) is easy to find yourself enamoured with.” – AD

The colour protector

Shu Uemura Art of Hair Color Lustre, $50 at boutiques and salons across Canada (visit www.shuuemura.ca for retailers)

“My colour-treated hair got a much-needed kick from this silicone-free rinse-out treatment. Linseed oil revives and evens out a dye job, while rose-musk oil prevents oxidation and fading.” – MR

The good-life blend

Boucheron Place Vendôme Eau de Parfum Spray, $115 for 100 ml at Hudson’s Bay

“Named after the famous Paris locale where Frederic Boucheron opened his first jewellery store in 1893, this woody ‘floriental’ fragrance contains notes of pink pepper, jasmine, honey and cedarwood. A spritz on the wrist feels as luxe as a weighty gold cuff.” – AD

The wave maker

Kérastase Spray à Porter, $36 through www.kerastase.ca

“The best product for achieving the season’s urban-inspired waves, this lightweight spray combines xylose (a wood-derived sugar) with a water-based lotion and texturizing magnesium sulfate to nourish hair and create soft, never straw-like curls.” – AD

The high-shine serum

Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine, $39.99 at salons across Canada (visit www.redken.ca for retailers)
