Don’t get us wrong, we love bargain beauty products as much as you do, but sometimes we crave a little luxury in our lives. And, when hunting for high-end beauty products, what better place comes to mind than Saks Fifth Avenue? Its brick-and-mortar locations are the epitome of opulence, but if you’re not near one of its physical boutiques, you can quickly head to its website for the same luxe shopping experience in the comfort of your home. If that’s not enough to entice you to take a look at Saks’s array of beauty products, it’s worth noting that you can spot a few Allure Best of Beauty Award winners throughout its virtual aisles, too.
Whether you’re in need of a new flat iron from GHD or a conditioning lip balm à la Guerlain, Saks Fifth Avenue has curated options with our seal of approval. The best part is that some of these luxury items, like a lash-enhancing mascara from MAC and Lancôme’s beloved cream concealer, will cost less than $30. If you’re in need of shopping guidance, allow us to do the job for you by grabbing the following Allure Best of Beauty-winning beauty buys, below.
We love the oil-absorbing benefits of most dry shampoos, but we don’t like the white residue they can leave behind. That’s where R+Co’s Vapor Lotion To Powder Dry Shampoo steps in. As its name suggests, this dry shampoo applies like a clear lotion and dries to a translucent, oil-absorbing powder. Yes, it has the usual oil-absorbing ingredients you’d spot in most dry shampoo formulas (tapioca starch, arrowroot powder, and silica), but it’s also spiked with moisturizing glycerin to moisturize your scalp and roots. This formula won an Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award in 2022 for its impressive, innovative take on a classic hair care product.
Thick, curly hair types can freely straighten their hair to pinpoint perfection with GHD’s Max Styler. This multi-Allure Best of Beauty winner has nabbed our highest accolade in 2021 and 2022 for its ultra-wide 1.5-inch ceramic plates. These plates heat up to an optimal 365 degrees Fahrenheit to straighten and leave a silky-soft, glossy finish without burning your delicate hair.
The luxe packaging of Tom Ford’s Eye Color Quad is worthy of a spot in The Louvre, but that’s not the only reason why it won an Allure Best of Beauty Award in 2022. This four-pan eye shadow compact is one of our team’s favorite eye makeup products of the year for its buttery, blendable shades and 12 colorways to choose from. Currently, we’re swiping on the nude-themed Sous Le Sable, seen above, for an effortless day-to-night look.
