    In brutally cold weather, you need to work for good skin. This water-based primer is the ideal post-moisturizer, pre-makeup step. (We experienced no signs of pilling, even on dry patches.) Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Primer ($43), beautyboutique.ca.

    8 Faces Boundless Solid Oil

    The founder of this new Canadian brand tempted fate every time she travelled with face oils so she created a solid version, full of antioxidant-rich amla berry, that won’t break open in your suitcase and stain your silk shirt. ELLE editors apply the smallest dollop on a moisturized face before bed, to protect the skin barrier from the scourge of central heating, and on dry lips and elbows throughout the day. 8 Faces Boundless Solid Oil ($108), 8facesbeauty.com.

    Sometimes you need a lipstick you can apply on a crowded subway platform sans mirror for a momentary reprieve from the daily slog. This not-too-sheer, not-too-pigmented brown-based nude hue is it. Lipstick Queen Lipstick in Nothing But the Truth ($32), murale.ca.

    Nothing makes us wonder what it would be like to own a private jet like the scent of a Tom Ford perfume, and his latest, a warm amber with top notes of bitter-orange peel, is no exception. (Hypothetical) pilot, to the Seychelles, please. Tom Ford Eau de Soleil Blanc Eau de Toilette Spray ($180 for 50 mL), at sephora.ca (Feb. 1).
