TAKE OUT YOUR CRAYONS--IT'S PLAYTIME!
"Playing with cosmetics" is a phrase we've heard quite often lately--and Clinique has expressed the idea in a literal and fun way, bringing back childhood memories as we apply cosmetics as grownups. Through a partnership with Crayola, Clinique gives new life to its Chubby Stick with a whimsical, feel-good look. The two iconic brands have joined forces on a 10-shade limited edition collection of Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17 each), in exclusive packaging. Working closely with Crayola, Clinique has color-matched and named these exclusive shades using some of Crayola's most unique names like Mauvelous, Razzmatazz, Mango Tango and Tickle Me Pink.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS LEAPS TO LIPS
Anastasia Beverly Hills may be remembered as forever changing the way we look at eyebrows, but the brand that Instagram-ed its way to huge success has set its goals on highlighting other facial features as well. The brand's 18-well professional Lip Palette ($48) contains a collection of lip shades featuring primaries, neutrals and brights, which can be worn alone or together for an endless array of looks. The long-wearing matte finish can be mixed (literally, on a mixing plate using a dual-ended lip brush with a spatula end) for looks from day to night.
"Our Lip Palette is unique in that it achieves a pigmented matte lipstick formula in a pan. The primary colors provide users with tons of color choices outside the 13 ready-to-wear shades," says Claudia Soare, president of Anastasia Beverly Hills.

The brand's biodegradable Mineral Cleansing Mousse ($59) also contains coconut extract, which not only can help replace the skin's lost lipids but also serves as a natural antibacterial agent.

FREEZE 24-7 SKIN BLIZZARD OFFERS INTENSIVE HYDRATION
If your skin is dry and peeling due to wintry weather, this might be the only blizzard you'll welcome. Freeze 24-7 Skin Blizzard Intensive Hydrating Facial Serum ($95) is described as an "extremely hydrating yet supple grape seed oil infused serum, that will have skin looking plump and dewy in an instant, reducing the look of fine lines, leaving skin looking and feeling youthful." It is said to be effective on all skin types, from dry and aged to dehydrated and sensitive.
The brand says the design of Freeze 24-7's Skin Blizzard pump dispenses the perfect amount of serum while keeping the enclosed product sealed airtight, and that the pump dispenser ensures the formula's efficiency is in no way compromised by exposure.
