New sheer lip colors make wearing bold hues low risk, high reward. Our picks: Maybelline New York Color Sensational Color Whisper ($8; maybelline.com), a gel formula with a finish akin to tinted glass (shown in Mad for Magenta, top; Pink Possibilities, third from top); and Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick ($34; yslbeautyus.com), a tinted balm with a kick (shown in No. 5, bottom; No. 13, third from bottom).
As much as we may be wishing for summer, July is still far off, and a suddenly sun-kissed face looks, well, weird. Instead, ease into spring radiance with Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Crème Bronzer ($11; target.com), a cream-to-powder formula that gives a subtle wash of color.
Save precious minutes in the morning with a serum-mascara hybrid like Jane Iredale Longest Lash Thickening & Lengthening Mascara ($33; shop.janeiredale.com). Seaweed lipids condition while the wand’s cellulose fibers fatten eye fringe.
Like other good-for-you habits (flossing, cooking at home), applying body lotion gets skipped when time is short. For expedited application and absorption, try Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer in Cocoa Radiant ($8; target.com).
After months of winter, skin becomes as pallid as the season. Perk it up with Clarins Double Serum ($85; clarins.com), the ultimate cure-all. It moisturizes and speeds cell turnover at a rate that rivals that of retinol.
Not so keen on nail bling? L’Oréal Paris Nail Lingerie ($9; lorealparisusa.com) may change your mind. The transparent, glittery appliqués look especially chic over nude polishes like Tom Ford Nail Lacquer in Mink Brulee or Toasted Sugar ($30; neimanmarcus.com).
