Best of 2011: Beauty Picks

The Dillard’s beauty team is proud to present the greatest cosmetic items of 2011. Ranging from fragrance to skin care, these six products combine expert picks with our most popular items.

butter LONDON 3 Free Nail Lacquer Bluey Anastasia Beauty Express Kit for Brows and Eyes BCBGMAXAZRIA Eau de Parfum Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme Libre Eau de Toilette Spray Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator
  1. butter LONDON 3 Free Nail Lacquer in Bluey: No beauty minded list is complete without nail color. Not only does the 3 Free line leave formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP out – but it also keeps the color amped with heavily pigmented shades. Bluey is a dark blue hue with a metallic twist. When you want a darker polish but are tired of black, deep blue is a fashionable option.
  2. Anastasia Beauty Express Kit for Brows and Eyes: Eyebrow shaping is a key element to getting a polished look. This kit includes brow wax cream, brow powder, an eye-brightening shadow duo, an angled brush and stencils. One of our customer reviews had this to say: “I’m not kidding when I say I use Beauty Express every day…I used this brow powder for the first time on a whim, and I seriously couldn’t believe the difference it made on my entire face!”
  3. BCBGMAXAZRIA Eau de Parfum: This women’s scent a treat to wear, and the beautiful bottle topped with a blooming flower cap is a lovely addition to any dressing table. Looking to gift this fragrance? BCBGMAXAZRIA is also available in a gift set.
  4. Yves Saint Laurent L’Homme Libre Eau de Toilette Spray: This men’s fragrance is described as addictive, and with notes of basil, deep woody vetiver and warm tones of leather we have to agree.
  5. Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment: This product helps repair crow’s feet, under-eye cross-hatching, crepe lids and sagginess — all without irritation. It is never too early to begin using anti-aging treatments, even if you aren’t seeing signs of eye-aging yet.
  6. Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator: In just 2 weeks, 62% of women showed improvement to skintone . 100% of reviewers would recommend this product to a friend. One reviewer said, “I had freckles and age spots but they are almost undetectable without any makeup! Friends have commented that I look younger and want to know what I have done!”

Coat Check: Which Style is Right for You?

Cozy up to a winter coat that keeps you warm and complements your figure. Read on to learn which of the season’s key shapes is best for your body.

  1. A-Line Hem: Like your favorite A-line skirt, this Jessica Simpson coat flares from the waist for a feminine finish. It’s a great choice if you’re looking to minimize hips or balance broad shoulders.
  2. Belted Waist: Create an hourglass shape, even when you’re all bundled up. Ideal for most body types, this Calvin Klein peacoat contours your waistline.
  3. Statement Collar: Not only does this Steve Madden coat frame your face, but it also provides extra protection from chilly winds. Plus, the added volume accents your shoulders and flatters your lower body.

Quick Tips for a Flawless Fit
When trying on a coat, check for arm seams that hit at the edge of your shoulders — the coat is too small if the seams stop short, too big if they hang over. Cross your arms around your body to make sure you can move comfortably. Try the coat on with a chunky sweater to ensure there’s plenty of room for layering.

Check out our entire selection of women’s coats and outerwear to find the style that’s right for you. And to learn more about our favorite outerwear silhouettes, watch “Five Top Outerwear Trends” from Fashion Files experts Annemarie and Alexandra Dillard.
