The 52 Best Beauty Products

best beauty products
A few of my favorite beauty products. Find the full list of my picks--and exactly why I love each one--here.

As a beauty editor and writer, I obviously try a lot of beauty products. I see all of the new launches, interview top experts and celebrities about their favorites, and, of course, constantly put it it all to the test. So, naturally, over the last 11 years that I've worked in the industry (added to my previous decade or so of being a serious amateur beauty junkie), I've developed lots of favorites that I tend to come back to again and again.

Because of what I do, people ask me all the time to share these favorite beauty products--the stuff I actually like enough to use myself. So I decided to come up with a list. I went through my medicine cabinet, my shower, my makeup bag, and my memories, and this is the result: 52 truly amazing beauty products. These are the products that really work, that I really use, that stand the test of time, and that have truly changed my beauty routine. And maybe, in their own small ways, my life.

This list will live permanently in the "Products" tab of my blog's navigation bar. (You can check it out here.) Visit it whenever you're looking for new products, and you'll be able to instantly see my favorite stuff and learn a little about why I love each one.

Be sure to check back in on the list periodically. It's definitely not complete. I'll be updating and adding to it from time to time, whenever I find something new and awesome that deserves to be in my personal hall of beauty fame. I'll also be adding to it when I realize I've just totally forgotten something! (There's already several of those. Big apologies to Essie Mint Candy Apple nail polish, Secret Clinical Strength Solid antiperspirant, and the amazing Body Shop Coconut Hair Shine --you'll all be added soon!) 

Basically this list will always be changing--ebbing and flowing, as I discover new things and new favorites. (Though I am quite confident that most of the products on this list are so great that they aren't going anywhere anytime soon!)

So, what do you think? Are any of my picks your favorites, too? Is there a category that I completely forgot about? Any all-time favorites of yours that I simply must try? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
