    I Tried 21 Cult-Favourite Beauty Products And Holy Cow, Are They Ever Great

    I'm obsessed with all of them.

    1. A Tower 28 lip jelly, if you're tired of the matte lip trend and prefer the look of a plumper, juicier pout. The formula is oil based, meaning you won't have to deal with the dreaded stickiness of a traditional gloss.

    2. A liquid eyeliner pen from Rare Beauty that'll help you achieve a cat eye that's sharp as a knife (thanks, Selena). It'll stay put all day long, so you won't have to worry about one wing magically vanishing while you're out and about.

    3. A jar of cult-favourite Aztec Secret bentonite clay mask that will suck every last bit of gunk out of your pores in under 20 minutes (and make you look like a swamp monster). You can also use it as a spot treatment, if you don't want to cover your whole face.

    4. A bottle of The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% solution that'll help banish annoying breakouts and balance your skin. If pimples tend to pop up around your period, consider this your knight in shining armour.

    5. This Marc Jacobs perfume that'll make you smell like a bouquet of flowers, but not like a grandma. The blend of daffodil, rhubarb, cedarwood, and cashmeran makes for a super-tasty scent that's warmer than your typical floral perfumes.

    6. This Amika waving wand that'll give you tousled, beachy waves without even getting in the water. It also delivers major volume, meaning even the finest hair won't fall flat.

    7. This Anastasia Beverly Hills palette that has every warm, neutral tone you could ever dream of needing. It has a mix of mattes and sparkles, and comes with a dual-ended brush that conveniently fits into the case.

    8. A pack of gold under-eye patches that are packed with rose oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to soothe and moisturize skin. They have a cooling effect, so they may help wake you up on an early morning (or after a hangover).

    9. A bottle of Verb Ghost Oil that's infused with bamboo extract, moringa seed oil, and argan oil to strengthen your locks and minimize frizz. It's thicker than most hair serums, and delivers some serious hydrating results with just a few pumps.

    10. A dual-ended tube of e.l.f lash and brow gel that'll help you achieve a no-makeup makeup look in seconds. It's not sticky at all, but will lift your brow hairs and lashes to the high heavens and keep them there all day long.

    11. This weightless foundation from Rare Beauty that has the texture of a serum, that'll actually let your skin breathe. It has an oversized doe-foot applicator that'll save you from over applying and wasting precious drops of product.

    12. A tube of Tarte's iconic Lights, Camera, Splashes mascara that'll see you through the harshest of storms, without budging or smudging. It'll also add curl and length to your lashes, which is perfect if you love a lil' bit of drama.

    13. This Tower 28 lip and cheek tint that's creamy, dreamy, and downright gorgeous. It's formulated with aloe vera extract, so it'll actually hydrate your skin, instead of leaving it looking cake-y.

    14. This hydrating moisturizer from The Ordinary that's scent free and won't irritate your sensitive skin. It's packed with dermal lipids, hyaluronic acids, and amino acids that'll quench even the most parched skin, without leaving it feeling greasy.

    15. This budget-friendly nail cream that'll make your talons longer and stronger than ever before. It can also be used to moisturize your hands and dry, calloused feet, if that's something you struggle with.

    16. A bottle of balancing Ole Henriksen toner that'll give you a fresh face without stripping your skin or leaving it feeling tight. I react to most toners, but this one keeps my pores happy and my face zit free.

    17. A tub of Biossance rose lip balm that's packed with hyaluronic acid to give your dry lips a healthy dose of moisture. The formula also includes wakame algae, which will naturally plump up your lips, without that weird tingly sensation.

    18. A travel-sized pack of Cetaphil cleansing cloths formulated for sensitive skin. They won't leave any pore-clogging residue behind, so they're great for using on the go. You can even use them to wipe down your dirty hands, if you're in a pinch and there's not a sink in sight.

    19. This liquid blush from Rare Beauty that's, like, stupid pigmented, so you'll only need the tiniest bit to pack a punch. It's super creamy and blends like a dream, too.

    20. This Becca foundation with a medium-coverage, natural finish that'll even out your skin tone without making you look like a mannequin. It's formulated to moisturize your skin, too, so it's great for dry fall/winter days.

    21. And finally, this NYX brow pencil that'll fill in your sparse brows, making them look fuller and fluffier than ever. It has a spoolie on the opposite end, so you can blend out any harsh lines.
