Allure’s Top Picks for 2014

Several of your favorite salon brands were front and center when Allure magazine named its 2014 Best of Beauty Award winners. Take a look at these standout products.

Best Nail Polish — Red: “Essie Dress to Kilt trounces every red we’ve tried. A straight-up cherry, it looks sexy on rounded nails and unexpectedly sporty on short ones.”

Best Nail Polish — Bright: “OPI Live.Love.Carnaval is a perfect coral — quieter than orange but livelier than pink — that looks insanely chic on hands and feet.”]

Best Nail Polish — Pastel: “Essie Lilacism is so milky, pretty, and demure, it elicited an ‘awww’ from one editor as she brushed it on. Bonus: It’s the rare pastel that doesn’t require three coats.”

Best Tweezers: “The Tweezerman Slant Tweezer has been grabbing our stubby strays — and this title — for years.” (Fourteen in a row, if you’re counting.)
