The Best Products Our Beauty Editors Tried in December

As beauty editors, we get sent products to test out each and every month, and December was full of some seriously incredible makeup and skincare goodies.

We tested out tons of products last month, but only a select few made the cut and are worth it in our eyes. Interested in finding out what we loved? Here are the products our beauty editors tried out in December.

Danessa Myricks Yummy To-Go Kit: $30

We know and love the brand Danessa Myricks for its beautiful complexion products, and when we found out about this Yummy To-Go Kit, we were more than happy to try it out. Included in the kit is the Yummy Skin Glow Serum, which is made with rich fruit extracts and plumps the skin, as well as the Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder, which reduces shine and blurs the skin.

Drunk Elephant Bouncy Brightfacial: $68

Any time Drunk Elephant comes out with a new product, we drop whatever it is that we're doing and test it out, and that's exactly what we did with the Bouncy Brightfacial. Formulated with azelaic acid, salicylic acid, niacinamide, virgin marula oil, chia seed oil and more, this works to not only smooth the skin's texture, but also targets blemishes, dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

If you've been dying to try the glittery Tom Ford lipstick but haven't yet pulled the trigger because of the outrageous price, look no further than the Glitteratzi Lip Duo from Hard Candy. This duo contains a shimmery lipstick and lipgloss, and the champagne hue is honestly next level and looks beautiful on just about anyone.

Gen See Spectator Sport Mascara: $23

Gen See was kind enough to send us all sorts of products from their line, and after testing out their lip and eye products, our favorite from the bunch has to be the mascara. Instead of focusing on just volume or length, this bad boy does it all. We like swiping on two coats and are left with voluminous, lengthy lashes.

Half Magic Chromaddiction Shimmer: $24

If you're a fan of Euphoria and the makeup looks served in each and every episode, you have Donni Davy to thank. She also happens to be the founder of Half Magic Makeup, and after finally getting our hands on the brand's Chromaddiction Shimmer, we can say with 100% certainty that it's worth the hype. This shimmer paint can be used all across the lid or as a liner and will leave you with an ethereal glow you'll get compliments on from pretty much everyone.
