The Cosmetics you’ll want to use time and time again

[Excerpted from May 2004 Town & Country]

A team of well known makeup artists and stylists as well as the beauty editors of Town & Country and other beauty magazines compiled this “best of†list. The reviewers include Jim Crawford, Mally Roncal, Rebecca Restrepo and Nathaniel Hawkins for Contact; Terri Apanasewicz, Taylor Babaian, Cathy Highland and Joanne Schlip for Cloutier Agency, Kevin Mancuso and Jeannia Robinette for Jed Root; Louis Braun; Karl Giant of Stephen Knoll Salon, NYC: Maury Hopson for Bryan Bantry; Kevin Lee of Manhattan’s Kenneth’s Salon; Brian Magaliones for Aartist Loft; Pablo Manzoni; Matthew Monzon for Sarah Laird; Jacqui Phillips.



BEST FACE MAKEUP


1. Laura Mercier Foundation. A sure bet for a perfectly polished finish. It’s especially good for evening. In oil-free and moisturizing formulas.

2. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Elegantly enhances without masking skin.

3. Chanel Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup SPF 15. Sheer to medium coverage with a dewy satin finish.

4. Diorskin Pure Light Sheer Skin-Lighting Makeup SPF 15. Illuminating and oil-free, for that I’m-not-wearing-makeup look.

5. Prescriptives custom Blend Foundation. Hand-mixed while you wait, to match your skin tone precisely.

6. Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick. Portable and user-friendly, for the girl on the go.

7. Shu Uemura Nobara Cream Foundation. Fade-resistant, with the smooth texture of a liquid and the convenience of a compact.

8. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15. An ingenious product for casual wear- or foundation-phobic.

9. Dermablend Cover Crème. Cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists recommend this heavier preparation to post surgical patients.

10. Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. The standout favorite concealer among makeup artists and beauty editors.

11. Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer. This stick is another overwhelmingly popular pick because of its silky consistency and effective coverage.

12. Laura Mercier Secret Camoflage. Classic, and still the best blend-to-match concealer around.

13. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat. Every purse should hold this totable complexion-brightening pen.

14. Prescriptives Vibrant Vitamin Infuser for Dull, Stressed Skin. The pearlescent finish awakens tired-looking complexions.

15. Chanel Natural Finish Pressed Powder. Matte, transparent and oil-controlling. And everyone loves its big mirror.

16. Shu Uemura Loose Face powder. A satin texture with a sheer or matte finish.

17. T. LeClerc Loose Powder. These pastel tints can even out skin tone or extend summer tans.

18. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. Makes achieving matte skin a breeze.

28. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pencil. Developed by the brow guru to the stars, this is the perfect filler.

30. Prescriptives False Eyelashes Mascara. Gives incredible volume, length and va-voom to lashes and wears all day without smudging.

31. Lancome Definicils Waterproof Mascara. Unbeatable lengthening, separating and defining.

32. Maybelline Full & Soft Mascara. Keeps lashes supple and flexible as it lengthens them.

Looks like we know it all anyway! I'm going to post a hair one and a 'best tools' one soon too. IT's from the same article. I liked reading the article as well. Too bad I didn't write it, but I sure did enjoy it.Heh heh... Stay Tuned!

Impressed with some of their choices - I saw a few low-ends in there, so that makes me feel better. LOL. I actually own a few of those higher-end products, and they do work for me! When it comes to the NARS Multiples though, I fell on the Wet 'n' Wild bandwagon. I have "Flirt," which is touted by many as the exact replica of Copacabana.

Wet 'n' Wild has a super great cream blush that gives a dewy glow. I love it. You only need a little bit and I bet it's just as good as Bobbi Brown et al.
