Lancôme’s new Miracle CC Cushion Color Correcting primers marry the skin-perfecting capabilities of a tinted primer with the latest cushion-compact technology. Worn beneath foundation, these face fixers take their cue from the color wheel: Use complementary hues to temper red acne blemishes, obscure purple under-eye circles, or brighten sallow skin. Best of all, the sponge-in-a-compact formula allows for lightweight applications and easy touch-ups on the go.

Tinted Lip Balm
Just as it reinvigorated the lip-soother category 30 years ago with its tingly peppermint lip balm, Burt’s Bees now hopes to do the same for lipstick. Its new all-natural 14-shade range contains beeswax and moringa (a tropical plant) and raspberry-seed oils to soften smiles for up to eight hours. The richly pigmented colors are super-versatile (and covetable), but it’s the adorable honeycomb case, made from 60 percent post-consumer recycled plastic, that’s truly the bee’s knees.
