They look like giant crayons but they’re actually my latest essential – Clinique Chubby Stick lip balms. The shea butter, mango-seed butter and jojoba-seed oil mean their texture’s smooth and hydrating, and the no-mess retractable tubes make them easy to slick on. They’re available in eight bright shades. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm, $40. From Clinique counters nationwide. A winged eye is a beauty classic. Gel eyeliners tend to be smoother to apply and to dry more quickly than traditional liquid formulas, and Maybelline’s new Eye Studio is a great inexpensive option. Once it’s on it stays on – even if you have greasy lids. Now all you need to do is master your technique. Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner, $20. From pharmacies and department stores nationwide. Bobbi Brown always does beautiful compacts, with her nude palettes and shimmer bricks two of my favourite splurges. Her latest limited-edition offering is part of her personal crusade to get young women to master a freshfaced, healthy-skin look. Try Pretty for a girlish flush or Powerful for a darker pink tone. Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Palettes, $150. From Bobbi Brown counters nationwide.
