Concealer

This concealer doesn’t play favourites. It’s form­u­­lated with anti-wrin­kle pep­tides and hy­drat­ing ly­chee-fruit de­riv­a­tives, so it’s as good for un­der-eye cir­cles as it is for your peely stress-re­lated break­out. Ur­ban De­cay Naked Skin Weight­less Com­plete Cov­er­age Concealer ($35)

Nail Pol­ish

De­spite some tough com­pe­ti­tion, this strength­en­ing pol­ish emerged on top yet again. “The colour is great, and the shine and wear were fan­tas­tic,” said Mrs. Col­burn from Ni­a­gara Falls, Ont. “And the wide brush made ap­ply­ing it very smooth and easy.” Sally Hansen Com­plete Sa­lon Man­i­cure ($10)
