Blonde Life Brightening Masque
They say: To help with the high maintenance of a blond mane, Joico says it delivers a product specially formulated to keep the horrible Bs (brassiness, brittleness and breakage) at bay.
We say: This masque is a moisturizing machine. Our tester’s hair, thanks to an abundance of beachy blond highlights and its natural curl, is as dry as an Arizona acreage. Top-notch conditioners are the only way she can combat the frizz, and this masque lived up to its smoothing hype. Our tester especially liked that she could rinse lightly, leaving in some of the non-greasy, fresh-smelling (very light vanilla and citrus) masque as a styling product.

Ombre Premiere Eyeshadow Cream
They say: A long-wearing cream eyeshadow that “glides on effortlessly to leave an elegant satin finish.”
We say: Our tester tried the hue Scintillanc, a shimmery champagne colour that gave lids a dreamy, slightly shiny appeal. Think all cream shadows end in a creasy mess? Think again. These eyeshadow pots deliver fully saturated colour that lasts all day without crinkles and creases, even on greasy lids.
$40 | Chanel counters
They say: A collection of skin care products that harness the power of, “premium and rare natural Asian herbs and probiotics” to help improve skin’s hydration, regeneration and overall radiance.
We say: We could all use a bit of a boost in the moisture and radiance department after a long, wet spring. This collection left our tester’s skin feeling soothed and happy post-use.
