2010 Shape of Beauty Awards

Improvements in skin texture come from a mix of antioxidant-rich super foods—including kiwi, pineapple, and pomegranate—in combination with jojoba and silica beads.
No scrub will wash away your cellulite, but this one leaves skin “smoother and tighter.” Red algae reduces water retention, Himalayan salt exfoliates, and peppermint extract makes it feel cool and refreshing in the shower.
• MAC Cremesheen Glass Lip Gloss

• Best color Essie Nail Polish in Angora Cardi ($8)
This deep, dusty rose was the testers’ fave: It felt trendy, but not too ‘out there’ to wear to work.
