GO GO GAD­GET

The old faithful Brush cleansers (that take for­ever to dry). The new guard Sephora Col­lec­tion Color Switch by Vera Monda Brush Cleaner ($23). Glide a makeup brush over this rough, dry sponge in be­tween shad­ows to re­move pig­ment. It con­tains tiny pores that pull pow­der from your brush, al­low­ing you to tran­si­tion from neon night-out makeup to day­time taupe eas­ily. It’s per­fect for that 24-step eye­shadow tu­to­rial you’ve book­marked on YouTube for Hal­loween this year. The old faithful Perch­ing on your bath­room counter for a good mir­ror view. The new guard The Sim­ple­hu­man 5” Sen­sor Mir­ror in Rose Gold ($150) has a sen­sor that de­tects when you are en­ter­tain­ing your vain side and

au­to­mat­i­cally lights up when you ap­proach, sim­u­lat­ing nat­u­ral light so you know ex­actly what your foun­da­tion will look like out­side. It gives a 10x mag­ni­fied close-up view—ideal for pluck­ing stray brow hairs or get­ting your cat eye just right. It also folds up if you need to tuck it away when your Tin­der date comes over for the first time. The only thing miss­ing? Daily af­fir­ma­tions that you are, in­deed, the fairest of them all. The old faithful Your kinda sus face cloth. The new guard Luna Play by Foreo ($49). Shake up your skin­care with this small sil­i­cone fa­cial-cleans­ing de­vice that vi­brates and pul­sates as you wash your face. The com­bi­na­tion of the vi­bra­tion and the sil­i­cone bris­tles helps clean your skin deeper than you scrolled on your ex’s In­sta­gram feed last night. The side with thicker bris­tles works best on oily skin, while the finer bris­tles are ideal for those with a sen­si­tive com­plex­ion. For de­tails, see Shop­ping Guide. The old faithful Your mom yelling at you to get out of the sun. The new guard My UV Patch by La Roche-Posay. To avoid com­ing home from va­cay with an em­bar­rass­ing (and painful) burn, try this per­sonal UV-mon­i­tor­ing patch. With cut­ting-edge ad­he­sive technology, it sticks to skin and mon­i­tors how much sun ex­po­sure you’re get­ting. Pho­to­sen­si­tive dyes change colour when the patch is ex­posed to UV rays and will have you seek­ing more shade than a Kar­dashian sub-tweet. Scan your patch us­ing the My UV Patch app for in-depth info on your ex­po­sure.
