Behold the lotions, potions, and fragrances that, according to 300 experts, have transcended time and claimed their spots in the pantheon of beauty greats. Why? Because they are wonderful—and they work.
Stila Eye Shadow in Kitten ($18, stilacosmetics.com) is a nude-pink shade with reflective pigments that give the powder its chameleonlike ability to blend with and brighten
any complexion. “You can wear it alone or with taupe shadows, or even with sheer blue or green ones,” says Super.
Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in Rosewood ($42, clarinsusa.com) contains four shades, ranging from a shimmery pale pink highlighter to a definition-adding cocoa brown, that mirror the tones that appear naturally in everyone’s eyelids. “You can do a wash of the pink over your lids for daytime, then layer on the darker colors for night,” said an enthusiastic fair-skinned tester.
