5 Beauty Products to Believe In
Take it from a seasoned skeptic, these beauty products do what they say
-Lois Joy Johnson
You don’t need me to tell you that there’s a lot of … well … half-truth in advertising, especially when it comes to beauty products. After many years in the industry, when it comes to claims and packaging, it’s hard to fool me. However, all is not smoke and mirrors …
Here are five beauty products to believe in this summer – and take it from a skeptic, they do work:
1. Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat ($29, QVC.com)
A sheer protein-rich, pink strengthener that gives a quick faux “French” look as it brightens the natural rosy hue of the nail bed and cancels out yellow tones. Amazing rehab if you’ve just ditched acrylics too.
2. It Cosmetics Get Wet Waterproof Bronzer ($32, HSN.com)
A triple palette of bronzer and two highlighter shades you can swim, shower or workout in. Play the video on the site for application tips.
3. Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil-Control Lotion SPF20 ($42, nordstrom.com)
No need for powder or a matte makeup, this clear primer eliminates shine and protects skin with a UVA/ UVB sunscreen.
