Nine Nagging Beauty Problems … Solved!

by Janene Mascarella

Looking great is not without its glitches. Got a problem? We’ve got the fix.

1. The problem: Messy, dried-out mascara

The fix: Make-up Designory’s pigment-rich mascara comes in a squeezable tube that lessens waste and reduces the probability of mascara drying out and spoiling. (A common mascara myth is that by pumping the wand in-and-out the tube, you’ll catch more cream for even application. But the truth is, by doing that, you’re filling the tube with air and ruining the product.) $14, MudShop.com

2. The problem: Stressed-out summer hair

The fix: Verb’s Styling Cream has a lightweight formula that smoothes and refines hair while taming frizz and providing subtle hold. Argan and jojoba oils smooth the hair while building body. Bamboo, green tea and sunflower extracts provide antioxidants, strengthen hair, prevent breakage and protect against heat styling. $12,VerbProducts.com

3. The problem:  Small beauty items get lost in your purse

The Fix: The Raspberry Sorbet Outback Pouchee helps you sort it all out and find it fast. There are specific pockets on the inside of the Pouchee for lipsticks, a comb or brush can fit in one of the outside pockets, and of course any other beauty items,such as face powder, can be placed in the main portion. $26.40, Pouchee.com

4. The problemDangerously hot curling irons and blow dryers

The Fix: Don’t risk it. Cool Care’s Wall Mount Holder has two-inch and three-inch barrels with vent holes to release the heat. This inventive product keeps countertops free from marring and scorching burns, is child-safe, and prevents house fires. $29.99 (wall-mount), $34.99 (countertop), Americanbeauty.ws

5. The problemUnsightly dark circles

The fix: Revitalite Eyelid and Dark Circle Corrector works to lift and tighten droopy eyelids, helping to reduce the appearance of undereye bags and puffiness.
