23 Tried-and-True Products NewBeauty Editors Are Constantly Repurchasing


One of the prettiest luxuries available to a beauty editor is the ability to try almost any product on (and off) the market firsthand. So when we find ourselves reverting back to a product we’ve already tested, finished, and yes, repurchased, well that’s a sign of a real winner. Here, 23 products we—and our vanities—can’t get enough of.

1 / 23

Clinique Super City Block BB Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($35)

“I’ve tried many cushion compacts (they’re my favorite K-Beauty discovery since sheet masks) and this one takes the cake. I have some melasma on my forehead and some redness around my nose, and this cushion makes my skin tone look even and smooth.” 

–Brittany Burhop, Senior Editor

Crest 3-D White Luxe Whitestrips ($55)

“Yellow teeth can make you appear so much older and less attractive, so every seven to eight months or so I’ll start a teeth-whitening routine with these. They really work and I always see results pretty much immediately.” 

Julie Ricevuto, Digital Beauty Editor

Shu Uemura Straightforward Time-Saving Blow Dry Oil Spray ($39)

“If I know I want to rock sleek strands for the next few days, this is my go-to partner in crime. This spray-on oil smells divine and slashes my blow-dry time in half—if not more—while making my hair feel like spun silk and extending my straight styles for days (seriously, my hair won’t hold a curl until I wash it out—that’s how good this stuff is). I think I’ve turned at least five friends onto this since my first bottle and I’m not stopping there! Your hair needs this.” 

–Danielle Fontana, Editorial Assistant

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23)

“This is one of the only mascaras that makes my lashes look 10 times longer, darker and fuller. I actually start to panic when I near the end of a tube and don’t have a spare on hand. By far, one of the best makeup products ever invented!” 

–Elise Minton, Executive Beauty Editor

5 / 23

NARS Roman Holiday Lipstick ($28)

“I don’t want to live in a world without this lipstick, so I don’t. It’s a sheer, cool-toned pastel pink that feels really moisturizing on my lips. It gives me that little hint of color that I need to keep me from looking totally washed out and feels silky smooth, almost like a lip balm.” 

–Tatiana Bido, Special Projects Editor

6 / 23

Kneipp Eucalyptus Cold Season Mineral Bath Salt ($20)

“I don’t step into winter without a few of these on hand. They create the most comforting, cold-repelling bath at the end of a long day.” 

–Liz Ritter, Executive Managing Editor

7 / 23

Lancôme BiFacil Eye Makeup Remover ($30)

“I should probably just buy this by the case. I don’t even remember when I was introduced to this do-it-all makeup remover (could have been college or maybe even high school), but I go through it like water.” 

–Elise Minton, Executive Beauty Editor

8 / 23

M-61 Hydraboost Serum ($78)

“I’ve been using this serum for years and I love its oil-free, hydrating formula, which really seems to benefit my combination skin. There’s no sticky feel and my moisturizer and makeup layer easily on top.” 

–Brittany Burhop, Senior Editor

9 / 23

RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner ($98)

“I’ve always had short, stubby lashes that break super easily, so I’ve been on a mission the past few years to find a way to rehab my weak eyelashes. I started using RevitaLash every night before bed and my lashes grew so quickly that they almost looked fake (I even had to decrease my weekly usage to keep them from looking crazy!). I’ve gone through at least four tubes of this and can’t imagine going back to never using it.” 

Julie Ricevuto, Digital Beauty Editor

10 / 23

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($45)

“This luxe cream, along with my Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb oil, has become my go-to signature scent I can’t be without. I’ve been through three pots of it so far and my legs have never been smoother (it’s the easiest way to fade dimples without hitting the gym). Plus, my family is from Brazil, so there’s something comforting about using a cream that’s chock-full of indigenous ingredients (like guaraná and cupuaçu butter) that both my mom and grandmother have always raved about.” 

–Danielle Fontana, Editorial Assistant

11 / 23

Phyto Huile Soyeuse Lightweight Hydrating Oil ($40)

“I have very fine, dry hair that I do horrible things to in terms of processed color and heat styling, so I’m obsessed with this product. If I use any other type of hair oil, it’s usually too heavy and even the slightest amount will leave my hair looking greasy. This is the only product that helps keep my ends looking healthy without totally weighing it down. It’s a must-have and it pains me to even throw the empty bottle away.” 

–Tatiana Bido, Special Projects Editor

12 / 23

Revision Skincare Intellishade Original

“This moisturizer delivers just the perfect amount of tinted coverage, which makes it a no-brainer to apply daily SPF. If I don’t have at least two backups on hand at all times, I semi-panic.” 

–Liz Ritter, Executive Managing Editor

13 / 23

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($163)

“SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic was my first real foray into anti-aging skin care and is an oldie (but very much a goodie).  Many women I know who have amazing skin credit this product for their youthful, radiant glow.  It features a powerful antioxidant complex of vitamins C and E combined with 0.5 percent ferulic acid to protect against free radicals that cause environmental aging. The benefits are visible—skin is smoother, firmer and more even. Paired with sunscreen, this can be the only anti-aging product you use and you’ll still get amazing results.” 

Carolyn Hsu, Site Director

Sugarbear Hair Vitamins ($30)

“I only recently discovered these yummy berry gummies a few months ago, but I’m already hooked. I just finished bottle number three and have to order some more. My hair has been growing like a weed ever since I added these into my routine.” 

–Elise Minton, Executive Beauty Editor

15 / 23

tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush ($28)

“This blush has always lived up to its 12-hour claim (and then some) and the powder never makes my skin look dry. I’ve done a whole day of zip-lining in this blush, and at the end, it still looked the same. Plus, the vast shade range gives me so many options when I need to restock.” 

–Brittany Burhop, Senior Editor

16 / 23

philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser ($36)

“I wear a lot of makeup and have super sensitive eyes, so I always make a point to remove all my makeup before bed. This cleanser takes off every stitch of makeup with very minimal rubbing and absolutely no eye irritation (even when taking off waterproof mascara!). I even bought the travel size so that I’ll never have to use anything else.” 

Julie Ricevuto, Digital Beauty Editor

17 / 23

MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix+ ($23)

“I’ve tried tons of finishing sprays and mists, but this cult-classic is hands down the best of the bunch. It sets my makeup while hydrating and refreshing my skin, and I also use it to spray on any product (like eye shadows or highlighters) when I want to intensify the color.” 

–Tatiana Bido, Special Projects Editor

18 / 23

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk-Natural Tint ($20)

“Have you noticed I have a thing (obsession) for cutting hair prep time in half yet? While the shade on the bottle of this holy grail dry shampoo looks pretty light, it fades into my dark brown hair seamlessly and leaves second (and third) day hair looking and smelling like it just got washed. I have quite the assortment of dry shampoos at home, but none stand a chance against this formula. One try and you’ll understand why I hoard these bottles as if they were hundred dollar bills.” 

–Danielle Fontana, Editorial Assistant

19 / 23

Diorshow Mascara ($28.50) and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23)

“I rotate between this go-to duo. One for day; one for night. Both deliver bigger, better-looking lashes with a few quick swipes.” 

–Liz Ritter, Executive Managing Editor

20 / 23

Davines Minu Hair Mask ($34)

“I don’t want to even think about how much I’ve spent on this mask over the years, but it’s totally worth it! I use it as a conditioner (hence why I go through it so fast) but it does such an amazing job of conditioning my color-treated hair.” 

–Elise Minton, Executive Beauty Editor

21 / 23

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo ($22)

“If you haven’t tried this dry shampoo, head to your nearest Sephora and whip that credit card out stat. It consistently soaks up oil and leaves behind its signature amika scent, which leaves my second-day hair looking and smelling its best. Plus, I’ve been using it for about four years and my hair has never “gotten used to it” like it has with some other formulas.” 

–Brittany Burhop, Senior Editor

Charlotte Tilbury Color Chameleon Color Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil in Amber Haze ($27)

“I love the look of eye shadow, but I have yet to master the art of applying it. This shade of this easy-to-use stick is specifically designed to complement brown eyes, which takes the guesswork out of the picture, and is seriously foolproof. I just swipe onto my lids and waterline, blend out with a rounded brush and out the door I go.” 

–Danielle Fontana, Editorial Assistant

23 / 23

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+Illumination Cream with SPF 50+ ($38)

“I’m only on my second tube of this CC cream, but I’m already planning on shelling out for the next one. I’m not a big liquid foundation lover, but switching over from powder to liquid is a small price to pay for a natural, dewy finish that hides the redness and evens out my skin tone.” 

–Tatiana Bido, Special Projects Editor
