Time to primp: Beauty purchases of the week

Come-hither lashes, effortless-looking locks and an antiaging product that won’t cause sensitive skin to flare up: beauty purchases to make this week.

Makeup artist in your bag

Dior Beauty really had to outdo themselves to improve upon their beloved Diorshow mascara, a pretty much perfect product. But to put a new spin on things, the beauty brand just released Diorshow 360, which features a spinning brush that does the magic of its predecessor — lengthens, adds volume and curls lashes — automatically. Created to “mimic a makeup artist’s application technique,” the patented double-helix brush grabs and curls both your upper and lower lashes, changing spinning direction with a turn of the cap. We’re still a little freaked out by holding a motorized brush to our eyes, but can’t be mad at the results: lush, full, come-hither lashes.

Tousled to perfection

Bumble and bumble, masters of effortless-looking locks — seen on those girls with artful strands of hair that fall just so — have come up with a new product to help you achieve an oh-my-hair-does-this-natually look. Bb.Texture hair(un)dressing creme, a unisex gel-creme hybrid, created with a “dry moisture” formula, adds lift, volume and definition. Use it on damp hair to enhance waves or apply to roots before blow-drying for volume.

Approved for sensitive skin

Those with sensitive skin know that using a too-strong moisturizer or soap can result in red, blotchy flare-ups. And while this makes us avoid products with antiaging ingredients and delicious-smelling fragrances, we’re happy to report that someone noticed. StriVectin recently debuted a wrinkle- and stretch mark-fighting cream that not only works on sensitive skin, but also strengthens your skin’s natural protective layer, making it less delicate.
