The #ProductEmpties We Loved to the Last Drop
From new finds to longtime favorites, these are beauty products that our editors use until the bitter end (of the tube)
So, you can imagine the utter devastation I suffered when I dropped my favorite lip oil -- lid off, head down -- directly into a dust bunny behind my nightstand. Despite being a lifelong germaphobe, I stared at the dirt- and fuzz-flecked applicator and momentarily contemplated the harm of wiping it off and pretending nothing ever happened.
Fortunately, after my fleeting hesitation, I was able to send my treasured lip treatment into that big makeup bag in the sky (the trash) without much regret. That's because even though my beloved Yes to Coconut Cooling Lip Oil feels like a million bucks, it only costs $4.99.
Packed with hydrating ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter, it soothes and moisturizes my lips even at their driest and flakiest. I like applying it before bed for to give my lips some heavy-duty overnight TLC, and I also routinely wear it out -- it's got the subtle sheen of a lip gloss but none of the stickiness. And of course, it doesn't hurt that this stuff costs a fraction of the price of other lip oils, which means I can stock up -- just in case beauty tragedy strikes again. --Mary Squillace
