Lesley's Top Ten: Beauty Must-Haves from MORE's EIC

One perk of being MORE's editor-in-chief is that I get to test lots of beauty products: the good, the bad and, yes, the ugly. These 10 are my favorite finds- try them and let me know if you agree.

Best Brow Faker: Laura Geller Brow Marker

Laura Geller's Brow Marker turns me into a makeup Seurat pointillistically filling in sparse spots with natural looking "hairs."

Prettiest Pink: Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Lipstick in 514

I love Giorgio Armani makeup for its muted tones and gorgeous finishes. Case in point: Rouge d'Armani Lipstick in 514, an adult pink.

Dark Circle Eraser: Giorgio Armani Master Corrector in No.2

I've tried them all but will take Armani's Master Corrector in No.2 to the grave. The formula's yellow tone cancels out blue shadows.

Giorgio Armani

Ultra Frizz Tamer: Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist takes my processed hair back to (almost) virgin territory.

Salve for Sore Skin: Aquaphor

Killer winters lead to alligator skin. Aquaphor Healing Ointment saves me from the taxidermist.

Long-Lasting Mani: CND Shellac

Shellac manicures stay as hard as a car's finish for two weeks. Unchipped. Amazing!


$35 and up; cnd.com for salons


911 Root Cover-Up: Rita Hazan Root Concealer

I've embarrassed my colorist Rita Hazan by going on TV with dark roots. I suspect she made her spray-on Root Concealer for busy women like me- and you.

Rita Hazan/Sephora

Raccoon-Eye Remedy: Kohgendo Cleansing Spa Water

Kohgendo Cleansing Spay Water isn't cheap. But it removes heavy makeup in one swipe.


$39; Click to purchase


Perfect Fall Floral: Fan di Fendi

I'm the best (and worst) fragrance customer. Love them all but am loyal to none. My current fling: Fan di Fendi.


$76; Click to purchase


Freshest Scent: Kai Fragrance

I find everything (but especially the Body Butter) in the Kai white-floral line divine.
