Elle International Beauty Awards 2017

On a warm and sunny Monday morning I got a chance to attend the official presentation of Elle Beauty Awards 2017, held in Zvezda Cafe, which is part of the National Gallery in Ljubljana. Elle Beauty Awards is a big international project, where 46 Elle beauty editors from all around the world choose 12 best products in 5 different categories: makeup, skincare, body care, haircare and fragrance. I was extremely elated, when I received an invitation and the first thing that popped into my head was of course What am I going to wear? I've always absolutely loved Elle magazine, so attending an event held by them was a real honour. My outfit of the day was a special take on menswear. I absolutely love the look of an oversized coat, tailored trousers and white shirt in combination with high heels. I also chose a white&red choker and a red bag, to add a pop of colour and finished everything off with slicked back hair. The perfect balance of mens and womenswear.


I really am excited to try out all the products myself. So here are the most outstanding beauty products according to 46 Elle Beauty Editors around the world and their reviews (text borrowed from elle.com)! 


FOUNDATION / SHISEIDO SYNCHRO SKIN LASTING LIQUID FOUNDATION

SHISEIDO Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation "is so clever, it probably has a university degree," says ELLE Canada's Vanessa Craft. Designed to reflect "the optimum amount of light, so skin doesn't look flat," the long-lasting formula releases anti-inflammatory and oil-absorbing ingredients to neutralize redness and reduce shine.

FRAGRANCE / CHANEL NO. 5 L'EAU

It's fresh; it's vivid; it's floral and modern," says ELLE China's Daisy Cai of CHANEL Chanel No. 5 L'Eau, the brand's new interpretation of Coco's iconic spritz. "It's a new No. 5 for the young generation."


HAIRCARE / KÉRASTASE L'INCROYABLE BLOWDRY

"The perfect blow-dry in a bottle," KÉRASTASE L'Incroyable Blowdry "creates flexible styles, from straight to curly" and "allows you to restyle without reapplying," says ELLE Germany Beauty Director Barbara Huber.

HAIRCARE / ORIBE SIGNATURE SHAMPOO

ORIBE Signature Shampoo is "one of the most luxurious shampoos ever made," says ELLE Singapore's Melissa Chew. The rich, silky cleanser leaves hair "wonderfully perfumed, smooth, and bouncy."

HAIRCARE / PHYTO PHYTOKÉRATINE EXTRÊME CREAM

Split ends meet their match with leave-in PHYTO Phytokératine Extrême Cream, "the most effective repair product I've tried for my colored, curled ends," says ELLE UK's Sophie Beresiner.

SKINCARE / ESTÉE LAUDER POWERFOIL MASK

ESTÉE LAUDER Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask "works like a reset button for your skin," says ELLE Belgium's Claire Thys. The sheet mask isn't just Instagram bait: In 10 minutes, the occlusive foil seals in a supercharged dose of the brand's signature serum.

SKINCARE / LANCÔME ÉNERGIE DE VIE LIQUID CARE MOISTURIZER

Ultralight LANCÔME Énergie de Vie Liquid Care moisturizer boasts "the freshness of a lotion, the concentration of a serum, and the hydration of a cream," says ELLE France's Elisabeth Martorell.


SKINCARE / SISLEY SISLEŸA L'INTÉGRAL ANTI-ÂGE

ELLE Spain Beauty Director María Fernández-Miranda calls SISLEY Sisleÿa L'Intégral Anti-Âge "the Ferrari of antiaging creams," thanks to potent botanicals and skin-nourishing vitamins and minerals.

SKINCARE / LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS

When it comes to SPF, the truest test is the sun Down Under. ELLE Australia's Janna Johnson O'Toole hails LA ROCHE-POSAY Anthelios as "the gold standard in sun protection—essential for fending off Australia's strong rays."


LIPSTICK / DIOR ROUGE DIOR MATTE LIPSTICK

DIOR Rouge Dior matte lipstick in 999 is more than a classic Hollywood red—it's packed with hyaluronic acid and collagen-building peptides, making it "like an antiaging cream for your lips," says ELLE Poland's Marta Rudowicz.

MASCARA / M.A.C INSTACURL LASH MASCARA

"No more eyelash curlers!" says ELLE Italy's Sabrina Bottone of M.A.C InstaCurl Lash mascara, which features an adjustable brush to customize coverage—and the desired degree of eye-opening bend—for maximum impact.


BODY CARE / THE BODY SHOP HAWAIIAN KUKUI CREAM

"The smell and texture are so lovely, you could eat it," ELLE Finland's Saara Ritvos says of THE BODY SHOP Hawaiian Kukui Cream. But better to slather it all over: "It moisturizes extremely well, whether you're in cold Finland or hot Honolulu."

  4. Elle has done quite a few wonders to my skin. It gives the ultimate moisture one requires in a skin tone to keep it healthy. Chanel to be one of my favorites. i have something to suggest lifecell all-in-one anti aging treatment. It gives a way to all the skin problems and keep up with the bleamish free look.
