The Weekly Hot List: New Beauty Products

8 Fabulous new beauty products to know about

-Lois Joy Johnson

As a beauty editor, I keep buying and trying new beauty products with the kind of nervous compulsion usually associated with addiction. I have beauty products in my fridge (displacing my veggies and Diet Coke), stuffed into an armoire and crammed into every cabinet and shelf in my office and bathroom. I just don’t want to miss out on any of the over 100,000 innovations being marketed every year. It feels like researchers, marketers, and advertising teams must be working 24/7 to update, upgrade, or reinvent whatever was on the shelves the week before. It is a race of sorts between brands to keep women interested in shopping.

Here are 8 new switch-ups for you to try:

Huge Lips Skinny Hips1. Huge Lips Skinny Hips by Purple Lab
A plumping lip gloss that also curbs your appetite with hoodia, a cactus-like plant used as an appetite suppressant in South Africa for centuries. I adored two shades: Worship Kate, a dark shimmery pink, and Love Your Thighs, a trendy sheer coral — but all are truly great.  ($20,

2. Perfect Formula Strengthen & Seal Sheer Pink Gel Coat
A protein-rich nail thickener with keratin and calcium in a see-thru fresh pink tint that works alone or as a basecoat. On its own it eliminated the icky yellow tones left by dark toe polish and whitened my fingernail tips too.  ($28.75,

Rodial Glam Balm3. Rodial Glam Balm
Multi-tasker fave of Rachel Bilson, Amber Valetta and Sarah Jessica Parker – vitamin C, shea butter and botanicals soothe sunburn, plump lips and wrinkles, tame flyways, hydrate eye area and more, amazing traveler and weekend do-all. And for all you whiners, yes I know it’s pricey but it’s a splurge that works. ($95,

4. Avon Solutions a.m./p.m. Maximum Moisture Day Cream SPF15 and Night Cream
Amazing bargain 2-in 1 jar that is split down the middle to hold two separate creams. Reese Witherspoon loves this and so do I! ($17.50,

Bye Bye Under Eye5. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye
A  full coverage high pigment concealer in a waterproof moisturizing formula with huge concentration of Vitamin K plus A,C, and E to reduce extreme discoloration and puffiness. You need a teeny amount to do the job. ($24,

6. Olay Professional Pro-X Age Repair Lotion With SPF 30
Daily full-face UVB and UVA moisturizer peptides, niacinamide beef up hydration and  strengthens the protective barrier, while vitamin C and E boost antioxidants.  ($42, and drugstores)

Avon SpectraColor Lipstick7. Avon SpectraColor Lipstick
Click a dial to customize this creamy lipstick from light to dark in a variety of 7 shades. I liked the Berries and the Roses best. ($7.99,

8. Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint
A swivel up stick of see-thru color in six shades that look absolutely real and won’t end up sliding around or changing color in the heat. The shades are so translucent they’re impossible to overdo and look great on bare skin or to brighten your face if you just wear a self-tanner. The Sheer Pink and Sheer Lilac both worked for me. ($22,

Have fun with these fabulous new beauty products!
