10 Best Eyeshadows

It's a familiar scenario: You start your day with perfectly made-up eyes. Your lashes are long and lifted, your cat-eye wings are as symmetrical as they'll ever be and your shadow is blended so skillfully that you wish you could give yourself a high five. But a few hours later, you glance in the bathroom mirror to find a pair of shockingly faded, creased eyelids. What was a makeup masterpiece this morning is now a hot mess. We've all been there.   See shadows

7 Best Lip Balms -- and the 5 Worst

Here's a question for you: How many times a day do you apply lip balm? According to a recent poll we posted on our Facebook page, the average woman uses lip balm anywhere from two to 30 times a day. Yeah, you read that right -- 30 times.   See lip balms

13 Best Face Scrubs

We tend to stick to the same three skin care basics: cleanser, moisturizer and sun protection (if we remember). Sure, a lot of women do the occasional face mask or splurge on a facial, but there is one superimportant step many tend to forgo too often: exfoliating.   See face scrubs

8 Best Curling Irons -- and the 2 Worst

There are a few things you should look for in a curling iron: One, does it get hot enough to adequately curl your hair? Two, is it the right size barrel for the curls you want to create (smaller barrels mean tighter curls, looser barrels mean bigger curls)? Three, is it easy to hold and use? And four, is it a high enough quality iron to last you a long time?   See curling irons

9 Best Face Cleansing Towelettes

There's nothing better than a splash of cold water on your face in the morning, or washing away the day's grime with your favorite skin care products.

In this scenario, your best and easiest skin care option is to use a face wipe.   See products

12 Best Primers for Long-Lasting Eye Makeup

If you don't prime before applying eye makeup, you're committing a serious makeup crime. If you aren't convinced that you need (or have time for) this crucial step, maybe this will do it: Experts say that the No. 1 way to prevent makeup from melting and smudging is to prime. (Think about it this way: Taking an extra 10 seconds in the morning to apply eye primer is quicker than spending five minutes wiping eyeliner off your lower lids in the afternoon.)   See them now

The 6 Best -- and 5 Worst -- Hand Creams

Holding, typing, styling, high-fiving -- your hands go through a lot on a daily basis. But they usually end up at the bottom of the totem pole that is our beauty routine. Even though we spend hundreds of dollars on anti-aging face serums and new-and-improved heat protectants for our hair, it's easy to forget that our hands also show signs of aging -- even more than our faces.   See hand creams

11 Best Hot Styling Tools

Heat styling is a necessary evil in the world of hairstyles. With sleight of hand, curl and volume can be added to stick-straight hair with rollers or curling iron action, and wavy or curly hair can miraculously be straightened with a solid blow-out and flat-iron finessing.   See tools

15 Best Brow Enhancing Beauty Products

In case you haven't heard, full eyebrows are the hottest trend. And for good reason. Well-groomed brows can make you look polished and bring focus to your eyes, while un-groomed brows can make your overall look messy. Overplucked brows are just, well, scary.   See products

16 Best Body Scrubs

We love a rich, moisturizing body scrub. Unfortunately, exfoliating in the shower can take circus-like stability to avoid slipping on the layer of oil that many body scrubs leave all over the tub. That's why an excellent scrub must have great balance, too: the right ratio of skin-sloughing and moisturizing elements and an amazing fragrance that's not too strong, is energizing, and still relaxing enough to feel like you've stepped into a luxury spa. Sound like a tall order? That's why only 16 scrubs made the cut. Click through to see which reader-reviewed products stand up to the challenge.   See reviews
