by

It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t end the year looking back at our favorite beauty products of 2016. From makeup to hair, it’s fair to say that we hit the beauty lottery with a well-rounded selection of goodies that we’re still in love with. A year like 2016 has provided us with so many wonderful beauty love affairs it can be overwhelming. Where to look? What to look for? What to pick? We’ve carefully selected products that beauty gurus and die-hard beauty lovers alike have loved so that you can bask in the wonderfulness of a good product and money well spent.

Deborah Lippmann The Cure – Nail Cuticle Repair Cream Treatment
This ultra-nourishing formula repairs cuticles and returns softness and moisture to dry cuticles. It’s perfect to use when you want to feel pampered, but you’re also looking to save money.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel
This product is slightly underestimated but still ultra powerful. A leading topical prescription, this daily treatment gel has been wonderful for clearing blemishes almost instantly while helping to prevent new ones from forming.

Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundations 
It’s almost essential to have tried at least one Becca product by now. Becca’s name was really put on the map in the beauty world with the collaboration of Jaclyn Hill’s “Champagne Pop” highlighter. Since then, we’ve grown to love the other incredibly amazing products, such as their foundation. This buildable, ultra-light foundation creates a smooth coverage and leaves a soft-focused glow. The Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation reflects the perfect, radiant version of your skin.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Rose 
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have succeeded in having their brand embody the duality of sophistication and femininity while also incorporating edge and masculinity. This fragrance brings together a confident, refined, and seductive brand that’s all its own. If you loved Nirvana White & Black, you’ll be sure to really love Nirvana Rose.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
Dry shampoo has become the new hair product/hair styling essential. It’s perfect for those days when you want to add a little more texture and weight to freshly washed hair, or to spruce up your favorite effortless waves or defined curls. Let’s be honest: there are not enough hours in the day, and sometimes we just don’t have the time or the desire to style our hair. Because of this, dry shampoo has certainly become a Holy Grail item for us. In what we believe will soon become a cult classic, Klorane’s dry shampoo is formulated with oat milk to soothe and protect, while the corn and rice starches absorb excess oil. Here’s to soft, healthy, and beautiful-looking hair even on day three or four!

T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand 
Spruce up your hair routine without sacrificing healthy-looking hair by using this trio collection. Its tourmaline infusion allows you to create the hair you want without the sacrifice of healthy-looking hair. The three interchangeable wands give you the opportunity to create various looks ranging from defined spiral curls and effortless waves to full-on glamorous waves. What makes this trio so spectacular in comparison to other curling wands is that this product’s technology focuses on creating a curl or wave that’ll last and maintain a consistent heat by preventing under or overheating, which helps make an easy, secure change from one barrel to another.

LAVANILA Sport Luxe Deodorant
This is the women’s deodorant we’ve all been waiting for—you know, the long-lasting, non-residue, and aluminum-free deodorant that allows a woman to be focused and fearless rather than fearful and unsure. Forget the shoes. A girl needs a good deodorant to feel equipped to conquer the day.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration
It’s crucial to find a moisturizer that keeps your skin feeling and looking its best all winter long, but the struggle is always real to find the one that fits your wallet, your expectations, and most importantly, your needs. This cult favorite is perfect for any skin type as it gives immediate relief and long-lasting protection against dry, itchy skin, particularly eczema. Its formula is non-greasy and can be used all over the body. If you’ve never tried this brand before, we highly recommend you give this one a chance. We promise you won’t regret it.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer
Jaclyn Hill has sung the praises of “Sugar Sugar” for years now. This high-shine lip gloss with lasting radiance has a formula that offers a plump look and a non-stickiness that’s every girl’s dream. What we love even more about Marc’s lip glosses is that we get to see another side of him through his shade names as they’re inspired by some of Marc’s favorite music.

The Holiday Nail Collections You Need to Own

Nail polish is my Achilles’ heel. There’s a thrill when you’re on the hunt for the perfect shade and an euphoria when you find it. When your nails are done, you feel pretty, girly, and put together, making even the worst of days seem not so bad! The holidays are the best for nail polish addicts as it allows us to feed our obsession (kidding not kidding), but in all honesty, the holiday seasons create that opportunity to find new colors to add to your collection and decorate your nails in ways you wouldn’t normally. This year, we have the holiday nail collections you need to own and we guarantee you’re going to want to show these off. Your lady friends and family will be tapping your shoulder to find out what you’re wearing (that’s how awesome we think these collections are!), so no need to stress about what ones to choose from because we’ve narrowed down the list for you. All you need to do is have fun and thank us later!

Deborah Lippmann Fall Collections

by

While summer hasn’t officially ended just yet, we at Cliché already have fall manicures on the brain. Although spring pastels and vibrant summer pedis are all well and good, it’s the dark lacquers I know and love. Navy, black, and maroon have been my go-to polishes of choice since my punk rock days in high school, so it was love at first sight when I laid eyes on Deborah Lippman’s newest fall collections, Very Berry and After Midnight.

Deborah Lippmann VERY_BERRY_bottles

 

The Very Berry Collection is the perfect transition from summer to fall. If you’re still feeling the romantic reds of summer, this collection has a wide range of shades to keep that spirit alive (as if the packaging couldn’t do that alone!). Inside, you’ll find the following shades: “Strawberry Fields Forever, a full coverage bright strawberry crème; Cranberry Kiss, a crisp cranberry crème; Raspberry Jam, a full coverage ripened raspberry crème; Mulberry’s Dream, a full coverage rick mulberry crème; Cherries Jubilee, a full coverage black cherry crème; and Boys N Berries, a full coverage deep boysenberry crème.” Each shade is opaque and goes on smooth for a long-lasting, rich manicure.

Now, the After Midnight Collection in their gel lab pro formula is just as rich, but is geared more towards the darkening, mysterious days of fall. Snuggle up with the following shades: “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, a smoke blue crème; After Midnight, a dark indigo crème; Wild Thing, a deep peacock crème; Love Hangover, a plum mauve crème; All Night Long, a black base with bronze shimmer; and Out of the Woods, a dark chocolate crème.”

Each shade of the After Midnight Collection retails for $20 each, and the Very Berry Collection is sold as a whole for $36. Get them at www.deborahlippmann.com.

Deborah Lippmann Whisper Collection

by

Although we’re in the dead of winter, we’re already looking ahead to spring all thanks to the new Deborah Lippmann Whisper collection of nail polishes. First previewed during NYFW S/S 2015 shows for Badgley Mischka, Theory, and Donna Karan, these shades set the mood for spring. Kiss the dark, wintry hues of burgundy reds and browns goodbye with these four perfectly nude shades: A Fine Romance (a shimmery, pearly champagne), Like Dreamers Do (a pale bisque), Misty Morning (a bluish grey), and Chantilly Lace (an shimmery, iridescent pink).
“Nude has always been young, fresh, and sophisticated,” said Deborah Lippmann. We couldn’t agree more. “We are enhancing this classic and pushing the boundaries of our creativity by playing with contour, shape, texture, and finish.”
Finish off your manicure with Deborah Lippmann’s new Quick Dry Drops ($20), which, applied after a top coat, dries nails completely within 60 seconds. We are convinced it’s magic.
Available this February for $18 at www.deborahlippmann.com, these nail polishes would make perfect Valentine’s Day gifts (hint, hint). They will also be sold at stores like Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Nordstorm, and Sephora nationwide.
