Double Beauty
by Laurie Gail


Though all signs indicate that the economy’s looking up, it remains wise to aim for getting more bang for our buck. Here’s a look at products that can seamlessly do “double beauty.”

VaselineVaseline® Petroleum Jelly has a few tricks up its sleeve for eyes, hands and hair. For eyes: tame unruly eyebrows with a thin layer and comb into place, use it as eye makeup remover or use a little on eyelashes for a fresh, no-makeup look. For hands: apply to cuticles to keep them soft, and to keep nail polish from getting on your skin. And for hair: use a dab to slick back stray hairs in a ponytail, and use a bit on ends to minimize the appearance of split ends. (Available at food, drug and mass retail outlets.)

Smashbox Camera ReadyCC creams are the new black. CC creams are similar to BB creams. In addition to the skincare benefits, CC creams offer color correction to address discoloration. The Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dark Spot Correcting lessens the appearance of dark spots, sun spots and post-acne marks. The lightweight formula also controls oil and has SPF 30. (Available at sephora.com.)

NARS The Multiple is one of the more well-known all-in-ones out there. The cream-to-powder multipurpose makeup stick can be used on eyes, cheeks and lips. The twelve shades range from the iconic Orgasm, a peachy pink shimmer, to Undress Me, a ballerina pink with silver shimmer, to Palm Beach, a rich bronze. (Available at sephora.com.)

Bobbi BrownBobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge For Lips And Cheeks has a cream-based formula for a sheer, stained finish. It comes in five colors including Calypso Coral, a bright coral, Rose, a pink rose, and Fresh Melon, a pink peach. For cheeks, apply with fingertips, foundation brush or sponge. For lips, press onto lips with fingers or a lip brush. (Available at bobbibrowncosmetics.com.)

The stila Lip & Cheek Stain is a sheer formula ready to give a flush to your cheeks and lips. The clickable pen comes in eight shades including Cherry Crush, a sheer berry red, Mango Crush, a sheer coral, and Pomegranate Crush, a deep plum. (Available at stilacosmetics.com.)

Josie Maran

And to finish up in the lip and cheek department,
Josie Maran’s new Argan Lip & Cheek Color Stick Set features four travel-sized color sticks that are 100% organic and 100% pure argan oil. Put a flush in your cheeks or lips right out of the tube in four of her favorite shades: Pink, Coral, Beautiful, a light bronze, and Twinkle, a plum. (Available at sephora.com.)
