Winter doesn't mean resigning yourself to pale-faced purgatory. Here are the new beauty products you're going to want — no, need — in your makeup arsenal this month.
Tom Ford | Velvet Orchid
We'd buy anything if Tom told us too, so it's no surprise we're digging his newest fragrance, Velvet Orchid. It's just the heady smell you want to be working in winter: rummy, honey-drenched, and both fresh and warm. The olfactory oracle has done it again.
$155 at Fresh
Prep+Prime Beauty Balm | MAC
Patchy winter skin got you down? Well turn that frown around, because the MAC Prep+Prime Beauty Balm is going to resurface your winter skin, leaving you moist, dewy, and lightly tinted. A primer as well as an SPF 35 UVA and B everyday sunscreen (don't think you can skip the sun protection because it's cold out!), this miracle tube is a creamy cure-all for the winter blues.
$42 at MAC Cosmetics
New Art Stick | Bobbi Brown
What do you get when lipstick and lip liner get together and make babies? The New Art Stick by Bobbi Brown, that's what. You know how your lip liner lasts all day? This smooth, creamy, chunky lippie does the same. It's conditioning, featherweight, and colour rich. The Harlow Red is already a classic.
$44 at Bobbi Brown
Better Than Sex Mascara | Too Faced
Not a phrase to be thrown around lightly, the Better Than Sex volumising mascara from Too Faced uses a collagen formula to pump up what you've already got, resulting in a pleasing fan of perfectly coated eyelashes. As good as sex might be a stretch, but a kickin' mascara none the less.
$31.95 at Mecca Cosmetica
New Bronze Face Kit | Liz Jones
Just because it's winter, doesn't mean we're not mentally prepping for the pool. For the makeup challenged or the lazy among us (so…basically everyone), Sydney's Liz Jones has come up with a corker of a concept. This kidney shaped Face Kit includes everything you need to create a healthy glow, including bronzer, eye shadow, lip gloss, concealer, brushes, mascara, eyeliner, and step-by-step instructions. The only thing missing is your bikini.
$85 at Liz Jones
Cellularose Blush Glace | By Terry
Don't let your dry cakes be cakey and parched with powder blush this winter. Quench them with this majorly moisturising, ooey gooey blush gel. Full of good stuff like Vitamin E and potent rose water, this flush enhancer will melt into your winter cheeks and leave you looking wind-kissed, rather than bitten.
$76 at Mecca Cosmetica
