Beauty Editor Must-Haves for 2013

nail glow2As She does most every year, The Beauty Bug checked in with some of the top editors and experts to see what products they were most looking forward to in 2013. Make sure to put these products on your ‘must-buy’ list:

“I’m loving all the bright pops of color for spring so it’s a tie. Kevin Murphy’s new Color bug in NEON yellow is rad, it’s a rinsable hair chalk that will look so cool and fresh on people with jet black hair like my daughter.  Tarte’s glamazon lip color in Fierce is my current obsession for me – the name says it all. It’s a matte shade that’s not drying and you can put it on without a mirror, something about the formulation and shape of the bullet makes it foolproof, not only that it gives your lips the perfect hot corally orange/red hue that’s the newest bright lip shade  for spring. Every time I wear it people ask me what it is. SERIOUSLY. My other fave find is Christian Dior’s Nail Glow. It appears hot pink in the bottle, you paint it on and it goes on clear, again foolproof , when it dries your nails look pinker, brighter, cleaner, shinier. It’s a magic trick.” - Elaine D’Farley, SELF’s Beauty Director 

“There are tons of great beauty finds to choose from in 2013. I am excited about Clinique’s Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 out in April. Think of Color Correcting cream (CC) as the new BB cream and this one is particularly special. It hydrates skin, neutralizes yellowness, redness and ashiness andprotects with SPF 30. It’s truly a multitasking complexion perfector. And speaking of complexion perfectors, NARS Amande Radiant Creamy Concealer (out in Feb) is my new makeup must-have. The texture is so blendable, the wand is super-easy to use and it makes my complexion look absolutely flawless. I also
love SK-II’s LXP Ultimate Revival Essence. It’s a facial water that’s applied after cleansing and before moisturizing and it helps hydrate and brighten skin. I even use it on my hands!” – Holly Carter, StyleWatch Beauty Director

Essie Sleek Stick Spring 2013 Nail Wrap Collection-22“The iconic nail brand Essie is coming out with their first nail appliqués in 2013, which will surely impress. Also, Shu Uemura is coming out with a hair perfume called Essence Absolue Nourishing Fragrance, which is infused with oil to calm frizz and control flyways, so not only will your hair smell great, but it will look gorgeous too.”- Anna Jimenez, Senior Editor of Video & Interactive for NewBeauty

“I’m looking forward to Chanel’s spring makeup collection, Printemps Precieux de Chanel. I got an early glimpse from the  brand and drooled over the range of soft, feminine pinks. I’m happy to move past severe, unwearable colors. Oh, and the nail polish that’s bound to be wait-listed? Chanel Le Vernis Nail Lacquer in Fracas, a limited-edition hot pink.” -Polly Blitzer, Founder, Beauty Blitz Media

“I’m looking forward to Armani Beauty’s new bi-phase makeup remover. It looks
like a gorgeous sculpture on my vanity and its oil-based formula won’t wrest the glue from my lash extensions. ” – Amber Katz, 

“I’m still totally into great nail polishes–and fun, subtle nail art. So I’m super excited about some of the new launches from Nails Inc including the Bling It On Black Leather & Skulls set. The polish creates a cool, black-leather finish and then you can glue on these tiny little silver skulls. So edgy and fun–I love it!” -Alyssa Kolsky Hertzig,
