Must-have oils for face, lips and hair from Smashbox, Physicians Formula and Shu Uemura Art Of Hair!

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil - 30ml - $49 - a specially formulated primer in a lightweight, luxurious oil, infused with a blend of 15 essential and lipid-rich plant oils that penetrates instantly to moisturize the face for seamless foundation application and a dewy, youthful finish.

It preps skin for makeup in two different ways: by sitting on top of the complexion to smooth its texture, while it absorbs directly into the skin to hydrate and boost moisturization; and reducing the appearance of dry, fine lines and leaves skin with a glowing look.

Now I loves me an oil-pretty much anything but I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of the idea of an oil primer - I had visions of slick skin and my foundation sliding off my face - so wrong - think glowy! The formula is super-light, soaks right in and gives skin a brightness that you just won't get from your regular lotion primer. It also has chamomile and lavender oils in it so it smells very calming - who can't use that first thing in the morning?! The only caution I will make is don't apply foundation immediately after the primer -  give it a few minutes to soak right in - and don't waste whatever oil is left over on your fingers - dry cuticles, knees, elbows and split ends will love it!

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix, Murale, Sephora, sephora.ca and beautyboutique.ca.
Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra-Nourishing Argan Lip Oil Duo - $14.79 - in Liquid Gold/Pink - a revolutionary lip 100% pure argan oil treatment that works to condition, hydrate, revive and replenish lips instantly and long term for a non-sticky luminous shine and a hint of natural colour for a healthy, more youthful looking pout.

Available now at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil - 150ml - $69 - a nourishing and protective essence infused with camellia oil that helps protect the hair fiber against dryness, frizz and UV damage while providing intense nutrition.

Available at participating Shu Uemura Art of Hair salons and online at www.shuuemura.ca.
