StyleBistro Awards 2012: Cast Your Vote for the Best New Color Cosmetic Product
We're kicking off StyleBistro Awards 2012 voting this morning with one of our favorite categories—Best New Color Cosmetics Product! Check out the following nominees and vote for your favorite! Winners will be announced August 21st.
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ($6 at drugstores): This new-for-2012 cream-gel eyeshadow has been lab-tested for crease-resistant, no-fade, 24-hour color. We love the super-smooth application, broad color-range (five neutrals for everyday and five wild statement-colors), and intense, saturated color.
e.l.f Cosmetics Essential Lip Stain ($2 at eyeslipsface.com): Our favorite new lip stain this year is e.l.f's—its marker tip makes the product easy to apply, it's infused with Vitamin E to help soften and moisturize your pucker, and it's buildable, which means you can intensify the color by layering it throughout the day. Plus, e.l.f's Essential Lip Stain won't break the bank—at $2 a pop, you can get one in every color!
L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Hydra Collagen Plumping Mascara ($8 at drugstores): Featuring a custom-designed brush to grab and coat every lash—even the tiniest, corner lashes!—L'Oreal's new collagen mascara promises to plump lashes 12-times over, instantly. The allergy- and opthamologist-tested formula harnesses the power of hydra-collagen to beef up your eyelashes—and keep 'em clump and smudge-free all day.
PixiGlow Magic Tink Tint ($16 at Target): If you love cosmetics line Pixi and if you love Disney—well, get down to your local Target immediately and check out PixiGlow, the store's newest collection of Tinkerbell-inspired color cosmetics. We're in love with PixiGlow's Magic Tink Tint—a sparkly ultra-moisturizing baby-pink lip balm that changes color according to your body's pH. It's infused with moisturizing Jojoba oil, nourishing Vitamin E, antioxidizing Vitamin A, and reparative Rose extract.
Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in "Coral" ($22.50 at Fresh): Beauty editors the world over are obsessed with Fresh's cult classic Sugar Lip Treatment—and this year, the company launched tinted versions. Let the hoarding begin! The Sugar Coral Tinted Lip Treatment is filled with good stuff—like sugar, a natural humectant; softening and smoothing grapeseed extract; natural moisturizing oils; and SPF15 protection against the sun.
Clark's Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Tints in "Because I Love You" and "Moore Nude"
($19 at clarksbotanicals.com): We've been longtime fans of Francesco Clark's good-for-you beauty and skincare line, especially his Ultra Rich Lip Tints—and these two newest shades are a must-have for any lippie junkie. "Because I Love You," left, is a sheer warm coral that complements a broad spectrum of skin tones; and "Moore Nude" is a hint-of-color with a soft glossy finished—plus it's named after one of our all-time favorite actresses, Julianne Moore (she's been a longtime supporter of the brand).
Napoleon Perdis' NP Set Glitter Duos ($10 at Target): Thing we love: glitter. Thing that annoys us: when glitter gets everywhere. Enter Napoleon Perdis and his genius NP Set Glitter Duos—they're gel, so they'll stay where you apply them! Just released this year, the Glitter Duos are available in four shades—Sao Paulo (top), a pearly white and a sparkly black; and Rio de Janeiro (bottom), a glamorous gold and a rich bronze.
Topshop blush in "Primetime" ($12 at topshop.com): Having a balmy summer and looking for a blush that won't make you look weirdly matte? Our pick of the season is Topshop's blush in "Primetime"—a lightweight cream-to-powder formula that has a glowy, luminous finish.
MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow ($20 at maccosmetics.com): If you're as addicted to your local MAC counter as we are (seriously, see you on Hoarders: Eyeshadow Edition), you'll know that the company's new MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow is a must-not-miss this year. The silky powder shadow comes in 16 vibrant shades—that apply true-to-color, and are buildable!—and will last you a solid eight hours of wear.
