Shape Magazine's upcoming January issue features a segment called "The Beauty Product that Chagned my Life." The feature includes beauty products that changed the life of some of the most well-known and respected industry experts, from models and TV personalities to dermatologist and spa professionals. Here are some products that made the cut!


Victoria’s Secret Sunkissed Bronze Instant Self Tan Lotion ($12; victoriassecret.com) “I grew up on the beach and love a bronzed look. To get that gorgeous glow safely, I smooth on this self-tanner once or twice a week. The lotion smells like coconut, not chemicals, so it reminds me of summer all year long.’’ —Adriana Lima, swimsuit model

Supersmile Professional Whitening System ($36; supersmile.com) “Other whitening products have made my teeth too sensitive. But this one doesn’t—and it keeps my smile gorgeous.” —Kelly Ripa

Goody Spin Pins ($6; at drugstores) “I have thick hair, so twisting it into an updo usually requires lots of bobby pins and elastics to make sure it doesn’t unravel. I wasn’t expecting much when I received a box of these corkscrew-like fasteners in a swag bag, but now I’m a convert. Using only one or two, I can create a cool chignon in 30 seconds or less.” —Annie Tomlin, blogger for bellasugar.

Tarte emphasEyes aqua-gel eyeliner in navy ($18; sephora.com)
“One of my favorite tricks to make me look alert and awake is to line my lower lids in blue pencil. Not only is this liner the perfect shade of indigo, it doesn’t sting my sensitive eyes.’’ —Maria Maio, a celebrity makeup artist in NYC

Lipfusion Micro-Injected CollageN Lip Plump Color Shine ($38; fusionbeauty.com) “Because I have so much on my plate, I’m obsessed with multitasking products like this. It makes my lips look fuller and adds color and sheen.” —Kim Kardashian

Maybelline color sensational lipcolor in red revival ($7; at drugstores)
“Bright red lips were all over the runway this season, and this is my favorite shade. Every time I wear it, women stop me to ask what color I have on! ’’ —Charlotte Willer, a makeup artist in NYC
