Kathie Lee & Hoda: Redbook’s Most Valuable Beauty Products
Redbook tested more than 400 beauty products with 24 beauty experts and chose their favorite lip, face, nail, and hair care products for their MVP list. Meredith Rollins, Redbook executive editor sat down with Kathie Lee and Hoda to share her favorite beauty products from the MVP list.
Redbook’s MVP: Flower Shine On Lip Gloss Review
Drew Barrymore’s new beauty line, Flower, won best lip gloss with its Shine On Lip Gloss, $6.98. Meredith said that Shine On leaves the perfect long-lasting shine with beautiful color.
For more lip color, she recommended Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color. For a shade in the middle, she suggested Maybelline Color Whisper by Color Sensational, $7.49. She said that Color Whisper is sheer, but with a beautiful color while still feeling light on your lip.
Today Show: Urban Decay Naked Flushed Bronzer Review
For the face, Meredith had several recommendations. She started with Urban Decay Naked Flushed Bronzer. She said that the bronzer looks good on all skin tones and isn’t too shimmery. The bronzer comes in a 3-in-1 with blush and highlighter. Next, she said that BB creams are all the rage because the cream covers, provides sun protection, brightens, and acts as a sheer foundation.
Today: Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator Review
Redbook‘s choice for best BB cream was Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator by Loreal Paris, $16.99. Last but not least, Meredith discussed CoverGirl Clump Crusher by Lashblast Mascara, $6.99. She said that the mascara lives up to its name and you can apply layer after layer with no clumps.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Sally Hensen Complete Salon Manicure Review
Meredith offered three suggestions for nail color. First, she brought out Sally Hensen Complete Salon Manicure in Jungle Gem. She said the elegant emerald tone looks good on all skin tones. For a more traditional color, she suggested Givenchy Le Vernis in Fuchsia Irresistible, $20. And for the best nude nail color, she recommended OPI Nail Lacquer in Glints of Glinda, $9. She said it’s a nice color that’s perfect for work, but it has a shimmer to it so it’s not boring.
Today Show: Alterna Bamboo Style Hairspray Review
For curly hair, Meredith recommends Redken Curvaceous Full Swirl, $19. It’s a mix of a serum and a cream that will hold curls intact. Alterna Bamboo Style Ultra Hold Hair Spray, $22, won Redbook‘s best hair spray. Meredith said that the spray was used in an all-day Redbook photo shoot with eight different hairstyles and never went flaky. Last but not least, she recommended John Frieda Full Repair Hydrate + Rescue Deep Conditioner, $9.99, for all hair types.
