50 Best Beauty Products of 2013

I don’t know about you, but every May I wait in anticipation for InStyle’s Top Beauty Buys, but the last couple of years I have been totally underwhelmed. The same products over and over, both high and low end, the same boring categories, despite the fact that many women will buy 5 different kinds of eyeshadows, but skip the hair and nail treatments for the salon. So I have made my own, heavy on the products I think women in their 20s and 30s want to buy. My choices are heavily informed by my LOVE of Birchbox and the monthly treats I receive, the expert advice I receive from my favorite stylist (Lindsey at Blown Away, hair designer (Chris at Trim), and makeup artist (Darren at Chanel/YSL – Saks). GO, now, and see them! Also my random finds at Target, Sephora, and my salons. Here they are, in no particular order. Enjoy!
