We put a bunch of celeb faves to the test to find out for our­selves!

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

La Mer Creme De La Mer $242

This iconic face cream has the cult fol­low­ing to end them all, and for good rea­son. It feels in­cred­i­ble, hy­drates for hours and 30ml goes a long way. How­ever, it’s not one-siz­e­fits-all – ladies with oily-com­bi­na­tion skin are likely to find it too heavy.

OPI Malaga Wine $19.95

This T is the per­fect job-in­ter­view, wed­ding-guest w and d date-night shade. It’s smart, so­phis­ti­cated, and flat­ter­ing on ev­ery skin tone.

May­belline Great Lash Mas­cara $12.95

You don’t be­come an iconic mas­cara for noth­ing! Launched in 1971, this is still a week­day work­horse for de­pend­able sting-free def­i­ni­tion – and look at that price! – but if you’re af­ter a fanned-out flut­ter, try a fi­bre-lash for­mula and a longer wand.

Clar­ins Beauty y Flash Balm $65

Yes, yes es and yes! Ap­prox­i­mately 250 squil­lion uil­lion high-tech skin primers have hit t shelves since the dawn of this 50ml ml skin perfector, but in our hum­ble opin­ion, it’s still the very best mois­turiser-primer er-primer hy­brid avail­able, for in­stant t com­plex­ion cor­rec­tion.

Yves Saint Lau­rent Touche Eclat $68

This lu­min­is­ing ng emul­sion has been hyped for years. years It makes a lovely vely high­lighter for th the fore­head, bridge of the th nose and chin, chi and is ideal for a hy­drat­ing touch-up, but bu if you’re a cov­er­age queen out to hide dark cir­cles or red­ness, r add a se­ri­ous con­cealer to your ar­se­nal, too.

Oribe Dry Tex­tur­iz­ing Spray $63

Oribe O hair­care only launched in 2008, 2 but given it was founded by b fash­ion’s hair maestro him­self – Oribe Canales – it’s been an in­stant in hit. If your hair is nat­u­rally fine fi and flat, it will bring your mane m the run­way tex­ture of your dreams. d If your hair’s dam­aged or nat­u­rally n coarse, don’t bother – there’s th a fine line be­tween gritty and a bird’s nest!

El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Eight Hour Cream $28

The 50ml multi-pur­pose skin soother has be­come one of those in­flight beauty essen­tials ev­ery model swears by for chapped skin – be it lips, hands or face. The best part about it is the tube – it never leaks, mak­ing it a very good travel com­pan­ion. As for the for­mula, it feels lux­u­ri­ous, but we’ve tried other skin salves that are more hy­drat­ing.

Nars Blush in Or­gasm $44

This gold shim­mer-flecked blush is the goods. The tone is flat­ter­ing for all, and the pow­der tex­ture is very blend­able. It’s kind of exxy for a blush, but it lasts for­ever and is the ideal hand­bag bag size. siz

Dior Lip Scrub $49

Fact: Ev­ery­body loves a lip scrub. They taste like lol­lies (be­cause sugar gran­ules do the scrub­bing), they leave your lips silky smooth and this one – while pricey – of­fers a nat­u­ral tint, so think of it as a 2-in-1. Prac­ti­cal pack­ag­ing means no sticky fin­gers ei­ther.
