The Best Makeup Products Our Beauty Editors Tried Last Month
We don't know about you, but our makeup collections are getting so out of hand that we're considering renting out a storage unit.
Just kidding—kind of. If it's not obvious, we're mildly obsessed with all things makeup. Whether it's the perfect red lipstick, a fuss-free mascara or a brow product—we want it all. This February, our beauty editors were sent tons of makeup. And after trying it all out, they've selected the best of the best. Keep reading for the makeup products our beauty editors are loving at the moment!
Bodyography Pro Perfect Foundation Stick: $31
We love makeup in a stick form, especially when it's foundation. We were sent the Bodyography Pro Perfect Foundation Stick, and wow. It's the perfect blend of creamy and matte and glides on so smooth, covering up imperfections and large pores. Depending on the amount of coverage you want, you can build it up with your fingers, a brush or even a beauty blender.
Alleyoop 11th Hour Cream Eyeshadow Sticks: $24
When you're on the go or simply don't feel like spending five minutes on your eyeshadow, a cream stick is what you should be using. After trying out this one from Alleyoop, we can honestly say this is much easier than blending powders. All you have to do is use your fingertips to blend it out, and bam, you're left with a stunning eye. If you like more of a defined eye, there's a hidden sharpener, too!
Merle Norman Darling Cheeks Duo: $35
There are all sorts of formulas when it comes to blush and bronzers. Liquid, powder, cream—you name it, we've tried it. If you're into more of a cream base, you need to try out this duo from Merle Norman. It glides onto the skin flawlessly and blends beautifully. We love the rosy essence it gave our cheeks, as well as the defined shadows it gave our jaws and cheekbones!
Nosta Beauty Swatch Me Face Palette Vol. 1: $35
Instead of carrying around a million makeup products with you, why not have most of it in one handy-dandy place? We're obsessing over this vintage-inspired VHS palette from Nosta Beauty. Featuring five stunning shades, you have all sorts of options for creating a fun face. Whether you opt to put it on your cheeks, lids or as a highlight, we promise it will look fab.

Luna Nectar Moon Boost Enhancing Serum for Lashes and Brows: $75
While a lash and brow serum isn't technically makeup, it does make our makeup look better. After using the serum for a month, one of our beauty editors has confirmed it works great. After all, just look at that before-and-after pic below! Made with ethically sourced ingredients, you'll be left with strong, long and stunning lashes (or brows)!

Sigma x Sephora Brush Cleaning Set: $25
When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes? If the answer is anything other than in the last month—OMG, clean them! We know, we know—cleaning makeup brushes is a daunting task, but after trying out this collab from Sigma and Sephora, we've finally found a way that isn't at all stressful. Including a cleanser as well as a silicone mat with seven different textures, this will get your brushes perfectly clean in no time.
Doll10 When the Stars Align 8-Piece Eyeliner Collection: $44.95
We don't wear eyeliner on a regular basis, so when we do rock it, you know we mean business. One of our editors tried out this eight-piece set from Doll10, and she's hooked. With eight different shades to choose from, it's easy to create the perfect look for your vibe of the night. The formula doesn't rub off and stays on for hours on end.
bareMinerals Original Liquid Mineral Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20: $35
When one of our beauty editors was sent this liquid mineral foundation from bareMinerals, she was a bit hesitant to try it out. Most liquid foundations go on too thick and look cakey. However, after pumping this onto a beauty blender, she noticed it was almost as liquidy as a facial oil! After building the formula on her face, she told us how flawless her skin looked. No creases, no visible pores—just pure perfection.
