Too Legit to Quit: 5 Beauty Products Our Editors Always Go Back to
Sure, hundreds -- maybe thousands -- of beauty products come across our desks each year, but these are the ones we'll never stop using. Ever
This is the silkiest, smoothest sunscreen I've ever put on my face. I actually look forward to putting it on every day, which is the first time in my life I can say that about a sunscreen. And the tint gives me enough coverage that I can skip foundation altogether. Amazing.
2. Stila Smudge Crayon Waterproof Eye Primer + Shadow + Liner in Kitten, $22
This stuff has changed my makeup world. It's an eye makeup primer, which means any shadows or eyeliner I layer on top stay put for hours. And this shade -- Kitten -- is really layer-able. I put on one or two layers on most days and that's it -- the gold undertones bring out the blue in my eyes. And when I want to go for more drama, I layer a few of my favorite shadows on top. Plus, the stick is so convenient -- this gem is always in my makeup bag.
3. Korres Magic Light Face Contouring Trio, $28
This is a new addition to my makeup haul, and I've now been using it every day for the last two months. In one compact, you get a bronzer, a blush, and a highlighting powder. Some days, I just use the blush/highlighter combo to brighten up my skin. Other days, I contour with the bronzer. And no matter what I do, my skin always looks natural -- none of the telltale signs that my cheekbones really aren't as high as they look (cough -- like the Kardashian Klan).
4. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Monte Carlo, $34
This is the best colored gloss I've ever tried, and the pink-red color is perfect for my fair (and pink-ish) skin tone. It's sheer but packs a lot of color, it lasts for a couple hours, and it's super moisturizing and not at all sticky.
5. CND Solar Oil, $7.50
I stash bottles of this nail and cuticle oil everywhere -- in my bathroom, on my desk at work (and at home), in my car, on my nightstand. I always had the worst cuticles and dry-looking nails, and now I can go manicure-free and my nails look neat and polished. Plus, the almond scent is so happy-making.
