Innovation is a wonderful thing, especially in the realm of beauty. Whether it's an update to a classic tool or an entirely reformed item that harnesses new technology, new products are always exciting because they present newer (and usually more comfortable) solutions to age old problems--remember cushion compacts? Some people are happy sticking with what they know, but not us: we'd rather take the future head on as it comes. Here are some of our favourite new beauty tools to test-drive this season.
A double-ended brush admittedly isn’t the true zenith of innovation, but this one makes the cut because it’s just the perfect one-size-fits-all solution with which to apply absolutely any colour corrector or concealer, even bronzer. Of course, it helps that the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Brush ($56) looks like a tiny royal sceptre, but the true worth of this little number is in its versatility–there’s very little that this brush can’t blend away or pat into evenness thanks to its ergonomic design.
