Peach & Lily Power Cocktail Lactic Acid Repair Serum

Tarte Maneater Mascara

Peach & Lily's Power Cocktail Lactic Acid Repair Serum is destined to bring skin to greatness with its innovative formula. Lactic acid takes center stage for gentle AHA resurfacing, supported by smart, hard-working ingredients like ginseng, algae, and probiotics, so fine lines and pores look less apparent.

If you need your mascara to last all day and into the night, turn to Tarte's Maneater Mascara. The Allure Best of Beauty-winning formula has an impressive 16-hour wear time and is a true one-swipe wonder, delivering clump-free length and volume (thanks to the soft-flex brush) as well as intensely opaque pigment. But this mascara doesn't just make your lashes look good — it also takes into account their health, with jojoba and carnauba wax to boot.

Kinship Brightwave Energizing + Brightening Eye Cream

R.E.M. Beauty Midnight Shadows Eyeshadow Palette

If you've never used a peachy-hued eye cream before, let Kinship Brightwave Energizing + Brightening Eye Cream be the one that converts you. The hint of tint instantly diminishes dark circles long before you apply concealer, while its vitamin C works on long-term brightening. Botanicals like red algae and chaga mushroom add to the hydrating, depuffing, and antioxidant impact, so your eye area looks all-around more radiant.

The R.E.M. Beauty Midnight Shadows Eye Shadow Palette, comes in three color schemes: Babydoll (the warm, neutral selection shown below), Midnight Snack (dark and cool mattes and shimmers), and Principessa (lighter, warm mattes and shimmers) — all perfect for any look you may be going for.

Nudestix Nudies Bloom All Over Dewy Face Color

Dermablend Loose Setting Powder

The Nudestix Nudies Bloom All Over Dewy Face Color is so versatile you'll be putting it all over your eyes, lips, and cheeks. The formula blends in easily with your fingers and melts into the skin, but it's still really convenient to have a brush in your hand for some extra blending action.

Dermablend's Loose Setting Powder is a translucent powder that feels like nothing is on the face. It's transfer-resistant too so once makeup is locked in, it's not budging until you wash your face

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Erborian BB Crème

Whether you're sweating it out at yoga or crying to your favorite Adele song, you can count on the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner to live up to its name. This steadfast waterproof formula glides on like melted butter and dries down immediately for a long-lasting, opaque, and smudge-proof finish.

This moisture-plus-coverage pick from Korean-French infusion brand Erborian is a creamy and mattifying option for days when you need some oil control. The BB Cream Tinted Moisturizer provides light-to-medium coverage and is infused with ginseng for moisture and licorice, which is known for its brightening abilities. Since the SPF coverage is less than 30, be sure to apply a sunscreen beforehand.

StriVectin Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum

About-Face Matte Fix Lip Pencil

Our skin-care routines have so many steps these days, so we're happy for any product that cuts out a few steps. StriVectin's Multi-Action Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum is one of those products that does just that. Not only does it brighten with the power of vitamin C, but the retinol also goes to work to stop fine lines from forming. 

For a formula that glides on so smoothly, it's genuinely shocking that this Matte Fix Lip Pencil actually stays in place for hours on end. The formula's inclusion of vitamin E and hyaluronic acid ensures the wear feels comfortable — not like dehydrated shrinkwrap — which means it also looks great, even if you don't top it off with a lipstick or gloss. Because it's part of Halsey's playful About-Face line, the 10 shades include some bright, bold options, but we also love this soft, plummy mauve called Little Little.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum

For a no-fuss, natural brow, it doesn't get much better than Anastasia Beverly Hills' Clear Brow Gel. Consider it the more laid-back sister to the brand's Brow Freeze, which is why Allure associate beauty director Sarah Kinonen reaches for this handy tube every morning. This glycerin-spiked formula defines and lifts brows with ease, while soothing chamomile adds a subtly lustrous finish.

The Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum is a floral perfume that holds notes of iris, patchouli, and Arabian jasmine sambac and some sweeter notes of orange blossom, warm vanilla, and spun sugar. Think of it as your escape to a fancy Parisian floral shop.

Beautyblender Bubble Sponge

NuFace Mini Facial Toning Microcurrent Kit Sandy Rose

Ah, the Beautyblender. This one is exactly like the Original but just in this Bubble pink hue. You can't talk to a makeup artist without this award-winning sponge somehow making its way into the conversation. Not only does makeup artist Patrick Ta, in particular, swear by it for flawlessly blending out foundation, but he also dabs it onto lids to clean up eye shadow if he over-blended it.

If you're always on the run, you'll appreciate the NuFace Mini Kit. This gift set includes a miniature version of the Trinity that'll treat skin with an intensive microcurrent treatment in as little as five minutes. The set also includes a tube of the brand's hyaluronic acid-rich Hydrating Aqua Gel and the Fix Serum.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Ultra-Slim Precision Brow Pencil

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Google "best full-coverage foundations" and there's a good chance Estée Lauder's famed Double Wear Foundation is at the top of every list you find. This iteration of the classic boasts more coverage and staying power than the original for maximum complexion perfection.

When Anastasia Beverly Hills first hit the beauty scene, Brow Wiz was the product everyone was talking about. It comes with a spoolie on one end and an ultra-fine retractable tip on the other. This pencil also comes in 12 shades but according to makeup artist Tommy Napoli, who's a fan of it, the hue Medium Ash is in every makeup artist’s kit. "It's a great neutral-toned medium-brown that works on so many skin tones," he says.

It'll be tempting to not douse yourself in this jumbo bottle of Midnight Recovery Concentrate that's more than double its original size, but you don't actually need to. For starters, your skin is already working overtime to repair itself while you sleep, and just a few drops of this lavender-scented elixir, formulated with evening primrose and squalane oils, will assist with rehydrating dry skin and smoothing away fine lines over time.

Smashbox Photo Finish Control Mattifying Primer

Cosrx Master Patch Set

Although it's a foundation primer, Smashbox's Photo Finish Control Mattifying Primer makes a big difference without any foundation on top. Try it alone (or with just concealer) for a matte finish without the heaviness of foundation on top.

The Cosrx Acne Pimple Patches come in a pack of 96 patches (that's a lot of pimples to flatten) in three different sizes. This K-beauty favorite has become one of the most popular acne patch picks, and its acclaim is rightly deserved. The hydrocolloid circles cling to the skin, no matter where you end up wearing them.

First Aid Beauty KP Smoothing Body Lotion with 10% AHA

Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Stick

One of TikTok's biggest trends is its users' fascination with at-home treatments for keratosis pilaris — also known as the little acne-like bumps some of us have on the back of our arms. Though there's no sole product that can make these teeny blemishes magically disappear, First Aid Beauty's KP Bump Eraser Body Lotion is known to minimize their look and feel. 

The Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Stick is so easy to use, people will think you spent hours on your eye look. Swipe the super-pigmented formula across lids and blend — you'll watch in amazement as the bold colors practically melt into the skin.

The Best of Beauty-winning Live Tinted Huestick Multistick comes in five different shades — rusty orange, deep red, peach, plum, and brick red — that are meant to flatter different skin tones and can be used to color-correct or add some pigment to the eyes, face, or lips. 

The Foreo Bear Mini helps maintain your microcurrent routine even when you're away from home. The treatments are totally customizable — it has three intensity settings, so you can adjust when your skin is feeling sensitive.

Lancôme Rénergie H.C.F. Triple Serum

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer

The triple-chamber bottle of Lancôme's Rénergie H.C.F. Triple Serum pumps out a combination of niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants vitamin C and ferulic acid. Keeping them apart until that final moment protects the strength of those powerful (but persnickety) ingredients. Once everyone gets together, this 2022 Best of Beauty winner offers just about every skin benefit known to humankind, including plumping, smoothing, and brightening.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer is a holy grail that shrinks the appearance of pores in an instant — even the ones on my nose that you can probably see from space. Plus, it has a matte finish, which means it’ll help tamp down any excess shine.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss

One swipe of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara will give your lashes a nice lift and more of a natural lash look. However, if you keep swiping and you'll get some really fluffy, voluminous lashes that people will mistake for falsies

Bobbi Brown's Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss caught our attention and impressed us so much that we gave it a 2020 Best of Beauty award. What makes this a winner? Well, it moisturizes using hyaluronic acid and a concoction of oils (olive fruit, apricot, avocado, and jojoba, to name a few), so you don't have to worry about doubling up with lip balm. It has an array of colorful shades, which is great for those who want the pigment of a lip stain with a glossy finish. And you don't have to worry about your flyaways clinging to your lips.

It Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

There's a reason IT Cosmetics' Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream won a Readers' Choice Award three years in a row. Other than a generous heaping of SPF, one of the top ingredients is snail mucin — in addition to collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and vitamins A, B, C, and E, making this full-coverage formula super hydrating and almost just as comforting as a moisturizing skin-care treatment.

The best part about the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil is that the formula is waterproof. Just ask senior commerce writer Angela Trakoshis, “As someone who lives by a brow pencil, I can confidently say that this one not only lasts all day through subway sweat but it also lasts through summer beach days," she says. If that's not impressive, we don't know what is.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump

Tula The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is a favorite for New York City-based makeup artist Tommy. "I've transformed acne-prone complexions into smooth and even ones without the look of heavy makeup with this stuff," he says. It comes in 53 shades, so there's a match for everyone. 

There's a reason IT Cosmetics' Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream won a Readers' Choice Award three years in a row. Other than a generous heaping of SPF, one of the top ingredients is snail mucin — in addition to collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and vitamins A, B, C, and E, making this full-coverage formula super hydrating and almost just as comforting as a moisturizing skin-care treatment. WRONG PRODUCT!!!

If you're in the market for a cleanser that does more than, well, cleanse, give Tula Skincare's The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser a whirl. Not only is it formulated with well-known soothers and hydrates like glycerin and turmeric, but probiotics such as Bifida ferment lysate and lactose smooth uneven skin texture and gently exfoliate the skin — leaving you with a truly clean slate for your subsequent skin-care products.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen

We came for the Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner because we have an unhealthy obsession with botanicals in skin care, but we stayed because it's just that damn good. The 2017 Best of Beauty winner contains rose fruit extract, rosewater, and angelica leaf extract — all known for their nourishing and soothing properties. Plus, it's alcohol-free, so it won't dry your skin out.

The Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ is an invisible, water-resistant sunscreen that becomes stronger when exposed to heat, sweat, or water. It gives a whole new meaning to "fun in the sun."

Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream

L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil

Sunday Riley's Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream keeps skin soft, supple, and at optimal hydration levels. The formula's inclusion of ceramides is a major reason why the moisturizer was so crucial for my regrettable skin situation. For those unfamiliar, ceramides naturally occur in skin to help with moisturization and act as a barrier that prevents dehydration. 

In and of itself, a hot, steamy shower is relaxing. But with the addition of the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil in my body care routine, this daily ritual has become downright indulgent. The luxurious oil-to-milk oil (a rich blend of shea butter and almond, grapeseed, and coconut oils) has raised the bar on showering.

PMD Personal Microderm Classic

Dermalogica Daily Glycolic Cleanser

Three minutes are all it takes for PMD Personal Microderm Pro's vacuum suctioning to increase blood flow and boost collagen production. Because it's a microdermabrasion tool, its spinning aluminum oxide crystal-coated disks scrub away your dead, dull skin cells. It also "helps fade sun spots and get rid of dead skin, which accentuates pores and wrinkles, more efficiently than scrubs or cleansing brushes," Jeannette Graf, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City, previously told Allure. 

Just remember to start off with the gentle white training disk (there are a variety of disks to accommodate skin sensitivity levels), move the device quickly over skin and don't hover, only do one pass per section of your face, and always sweep from the center of your face, outwards.

Made with a cocktail of exfoliating glycolic acid to even out the skin, you may worry that Dermalogica's Daily Glycolic Cleanser would dry out your skin — fear not. The formula also contains moisturizing jojoba oil and calming calendula extract so the skin is nourished and soft while you use it.

Benefit The Porefessional Pore Minimizing Primer

St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist

As we've said a bazillion times, you can't shrink your pores, but you can make them less noticeable — and a silicone-based primer is the fastest way to do that, Benefit's The Porefessional Pore Minimizing Primer. The biggest difference between this primer and every other primer we've tried is that you can wear it under or over makeup — which we love for WFH days. 

St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist smells like a Maui vacation and looks like crystal-clear water — except it's actually a self-tanner. That said, you'd have to spray a lot of the stuff to get a significant tan tint to develop on your face, so consider it more of a post-vacation glow extender than a bonafide bronze. P.S. It won a 2019 Best of Beauty Award!

Bobbi Brown Face Base Eye Cream

Tula 24-7 Moisture Hydrating Day & Night Cream

Apply the Bobbi Brown Face Base Eye Cream under your eyes prior to your concealer as a base for the makeup. The formula contains moisturizing shea butter so under eyes never get dry throughout the day (even with a matte concealer layered on top.)

Tula's 24-7 Moisture Hydrating Cream is a versatile day and night treatment because of its lightweight formula that deeply nourishes without feeling or looking greasy. The peptides inside help firm the skin while the squalane hydrates and nourishes.

Lancôme Lash Idôle Lash-Lifting & Volumizing Mascara

Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lip Kit

StriVectin's Peptide Tightening Neck Serum Roller is loved by both beauty editors and derms because, unlike some neck products, it actually gives legit results (with consistent use, that is). The top-selling serum contains a patented technology called NIA-114, as well as its "Gravitite-CF Lifting Complex," and both help reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin over time.

Leave it to Ms. Kylie Jenner to create a Lip Kit so influential and, more importantly, praise-worthy. The Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lip Kit feels surprisingly comfortable, comes in 28 hues, and is vegan, making it a star in its category.
