Le Mini Macaron Gel Manicure Kit

As someone who hasn’t done her own nails for longer than I care to admit, I found this DIY gel-manicure kit surprisingly simple to use. (You could still see my cuticles when I’d finished painting—usually, they’re covered for days.) The polish is a base coat, colour and top coat all in one. Each kit includes a nail colour that matches the delightful macaron-shaped LED lamp, a nail file, a cuticle stick and enough presoaked pads to remove polish once. Apply two coats, cure for 30 seconds each and forget about your nails for the next week (at least). Le Mini Macaron Gel Manicure Kit ($45 each), at leminimacaron.com.
Bite Beauty Multistick

Bite Beauty Multistick tints lips, cheeks and eyes with a lightweight swath of rich colour. The formula is powder filled (35 percent) and silicone-free, which means the finish lands smack dab in the middle of shiny and matte. Bite Beauty Multistick ($28 each), at sephora.ca.
