Here’s how they stacked up…

Thanks to the advancement of technology, beauty products are becoming more innovative and inventive than ever before. Rather than owning a slew of products, there are now nifty gadgets that do it all, and the results you can achieve in a few short minutes are nothing short of extraordinary.

So in the spirit of helping out the sisterhood, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to sift through all the latest and greatest new releases to find you some of the very best and brightest. Here’s what topped our list…

MAC Sculpt & Shape Powder

What it’s supposed to do: A product that takes the hard work out of highlighting and contouring.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned about makeup, it’s contouring is a girl’s best friend, especially if you have a round face with literally no cheek bones. The MAC powder was really easy to apply both with a brush or fingers, thanks to its smooth consistency. And the fact that it isn’t sparkly, but matte makes it perfect for a natural look.”

What it’s supposed to do: Be a simple tool for braiding hair. Just attach the strands, press the button, and away you go.

“I’ve always been a fan of braiding, but I get a wee bit weary of the conventional side plait. Quick Braid is easy to use and gives you a world of unique hairstyles. Aside from the fact it’s AA battery operated (um, there’s only one thing I buy batteries for!), this is an excellent way to get fab hair, fast.”

What it’s supposed to do: Be a one-stop-shop for makeup application in a snap, functioning as a bronzer, eyeliner, blush, eyeshadow, and contour. Applicator and blusher brush included.

“Eye shadow, eyeliner, bronzer, and blush all in one? This product is a winner for time poor people like me. It comes with an easy to use applicator, blusher brush, and instructions. Contour your whole face one sweep of the palette, or highlight your eyes with individual shades, you’ve got endless options.”

Remington Revitalise Facial Cleansing Brush

What it’s supposed to do: Designed to thoroughly cleanse and invigorate the skin, thanks to an oscillating head that gets deep into pores where breakout causing dirt often hides.

“I was hesitant at first, but this product pleasantly surprised me. My skin definitely felt smoother after using it, and the amount of dirt it actually washed away was amazing. I would definitely recommend it!”
