As a beauty editor, I come in contact with hundreds of products each week in every single category of beauty. (This is not an exaggeration.) From fragrance to lipsticks to body washes to foundation to nipple butter (yep, really), my desk, car, bathroom vanity, and every crevice in between are stuffed to the gills with all things new and exciting in beauty. And yet, so too is my shopping cart.
You see, one would think that after writing and reading about beauty every day, I’d have overstimulation syndrome and want absolutely nothing to do with the stuff after hours. But that actually couldn’t be further from the truth! Yes, I have formed a jaded and ever-skeptical eye when it comes to sleuthing and vetting products, but considering there are so many amazing brands and formulas out there—all of which debut on a rapid-fire basis—I’m constantly adding things to my need-to-try-or-buy list. Many things do come across my desk, but if they don’t, or if there’s something I love (or miss!) so much I know I’ll need a restock, I pull out my wallet with a beauty-thirsty vengeance.
Each week, we’ll be sharing the special products that caught our eye and gained the most swipes from our credit cards. Ahead, the best beauty products to buy right now from all of our favorite retailers such as Sephora, Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter, and more. Keep scrolling and happy shopping!
