THE POLITICS
OF BEAUTY:

PRODUCTS THAT WIN YOU OVER

Decision time. What beauty heroes will rule your world? Check out the candidates. We’re giving you a chance to compare and contrast. Go ahead – take sides. Better yet, pick both. It’s okay in this race.

POWDER VS. LIQUID FOUNDATION

Foundation evens your complexion and can even act as a barrier between the harsh environment and your skin. In other words: It’s an absolute must.

POWDER IS YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• Great for oily, combination or acne prone skin
• Absorbs moisture and mattifies your face
• Doesn’t clog your pores

LIQUID IS YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• Fab at filling fine lines and pores
• Retains moisture in your skin
• Many give you a dewy glow

MATTE VS. CREAM LIPSTICK

Matte is a sink-in-deep, no-shine finish. Cream is luscious and slick. Different looks, different feels … so which do you choose?

MATTE IS YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• Has a deep, velvety finish
• Tends to be long-lasting
• Makes a statement – go bold and then downplay your eyes

CREAM IS YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• Can be hydrating
• Swipes on smooth and easy
• Adds a pop of color, day and night

SKIN PEELS VS. SCRUBS

Let’s talk exfoliation. It’s an essential step for getting rid of dead skin cells and getting a brighter, glowing face. Kind of like bringing the spa home to you.

PEELS ARE YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• It’s a chemical exfoliator – powerful with instant results
• Has a smooth, gel-like consistency
• Precise – targets areas of your skin that need specific attention

SCRUBS ARE YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• Easy to do – even in your shower
• When you rub it in, you boost circulation
• Comes in all kinds of scents, from fruity to floral

LIQUID EYELINER VS. KOHL EYELINER

One’s like a pen; the other’s like a pencil. And they both offer dramatically different looks. How will you draw the line?

LIQUID IS YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• It goes on smoothly
• Tends to be deeply pigmented for a bold look
• Perfect for precise looks, like a cat eye

KOHL IS YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• Great for lower lids and waterlines
• Easier to build color – start soft and go darker
• Ideal for smudging into a smoky eye

CURLING IRON VS. FLAT IRON

You want waves. And there are many ways to get them. Roll out that barrel or use a flat iron (yes, you can use one to curl your hair!).

CURLING IRONS ARE YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• You control the size/looseness of your curl with the barrel size
• Adjustable heat settings keep your hair damage-free
• Some of them do fancy tricks

FLAT IRONS ARE YOUR CANDIDATE BECAUSE:

• It’s a secret weapon for great beach waves
• Less chance of tangling
• No crimped ends
