The Beauty Fix: 6 New Hair And Makeup Picks We Love
Here at Metro.Style, we usually get first dibs with the latest and greatest of beauty’s offerings every day. Most of them are exciting, some of them are literally life-changing, and sometimes they can get overwhelming.
When we really like something, though, you can trust that our review has come from vetting it against all the beauty products we’ve seen before. It’s a big beauty playground after all and we’ll gladly do the work to test everything and anything under the sun, and the best of the best often graduate to our Beauty Awards—which by the way is about to come this month!
Speaking of overwhelming, for now, let’s stick to the present and just talk about the brand new hair, makeup and skincare products that we’re obsessing over right now. Check it out:

It's possible! At Trinoma
