    HEY! BuzzFeed has a new beauty and style site called As/Is, which is all about celebrating your gorgeous and intelligent is, duh! And to celebrate its launch, we're interviewing some of the fierce ladies behind As/Is and getting the scoop on their favorite, ride-or-die products!

    We asked BuzzFeed Ladylike's Kristin Chirico (HELLO KRISTIN, you amazing human being!) to talk about some of her favorite things โ€” from the perfect red lipstick to her foolproof skincare regimen.


    Now without further ado, let's GO!

    **Humming "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music is optional, but highly encouraged.**

    1. A pack of Ponds Moisture Clean Towelettes to remove makeup (and happy eyeliner accidents) without leaving your skin feeling like omg-I-am-dying-over-here dry.

    Kristin: "I love these. Most cleansing wipes kinda feel like brillo pads, but these wipes have cold cream which just makes them really good. I'm bad at putting on eyeliner, so I'll use these wipes to fix up any mistakes. I'm also really really bad at taking off my makeup, and these are really effective in doing that without making my skin too dry!"

    Get a 28 ct. pack of four from Amazon for $16.11.

    2. A Stila waterproof liquid eyeliner complete with a super thin felt tip that makes a precise cat eye SO much more doable. Spread your WINGs and fly, people! / Via @stilacosmetics

    Kristin: "IT'S THE BEST. I'm not very good at putting on eyeliner, but this seriously helps."

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in 12 colors).

    3. A Snow White-inspired Besame red lipstick with a satin finish. This is guaranteed to give you the perfect dwarf-approved pout. No poison apples necessary.

    Kristin: "The packaging is really pretty, and the lipstick itself is shaped really interestingly โ€” there's a fine edge line your lips and a broader edge to fill it in. Plus, it's a really pretty color that blends well with a variety of lipliners."

    Get it from Besame Cosmetics or Sephora for $24.

    4. Hourglass's veil mineral primer that provides an oil-free ~veil~ to blur enlarged pores and redness. Because you're an artist, and this will turn your skin into a canvas. / Via @hourglasscosmetics

    Kristin: "This has SPF 15 in it, which is great. Also, I have big pores and this really prevents my foundation from sinking into the holes in my face, which is a constant problem."

    Get it from Sephora for $54.

    5. Hourglass's vegan and cruelty-free liquid-to-powder foundation for buildable, long-lasting coverage โ€” it delivers a matte finish and karate chops the crap out of excess oil.

    Kristin: "This foundation actually goes from a liquid to powder! Its vegan, cruelty-free, and I just really love it. I have a hard time matching my foundation because my neck is not the same color as my face, and this is the only foundation I've ever had where it's close enough that people aren't like, your foundation doesn't match. I use the porcelain shade!"

    Get it from Sephora for $56 (available in 22 shades).

    6. A Benefit dual-sided eyebrow pencil for brows that would make even Lily Collins jealous. This super fine applicator is so easy to use...poor Mona Lisa. If only she had this tool.

    Emmy Favilla / BuzzFeed,

    Kristin: "This brow pencil my favorite! It is super good, especially for people like me who have both dark brows and patchy brows. You can color your brows in with a pencil, and then smooth it with the brush at the end โ€” which is really great for when you're bad at drawing on brows, like i am."

    Get it from Sephora for $24 (available in six colors).

    7. A skincare regimen that consists of four Murad products: an eye cream, an eye serum, a retinol face cream, and an anti-acne age defying daily moisturizer, to be specific. / Via @muradskincare,

    Kristin: "I use Murad basically everything. Their anti-acne age defying daily moisturizer is great because it isn't oily, but it still has SPF in it. I also use their anti-aging eye cream and serum, and their retinol face cream at night. I started using their stuff about three or four years ago, and it's really good! I was at Sephora back when I broke out a lot, and I asked them for anti-acne stuff and they gave me Murad. I liked it because it didn't make my skin look greasy, so I started branching out and trying other things from the Murad line."

    Get them from Sephora for $80 (eye cream), $85 (eye serum), $82 (retinol night cream), and $48 (daily moisturizer) or from Murad for $80 (eye cream), $85 (eye serum), $82 (retinol night cream), and $48 (daily moisturizer).

    8. AND LAST BUT MOST CERTAINLY NOT LEAST! A disinfectant bathroom cleaner guaranteed to have your tub looking sparkly and new. **proceeds to buy 51 Lush bath bombs to bathe in my now clean tub**

    Kristin: "This is the only thing that gets my tub clean โ€” I love it! Whenever we bring in a cleaning service, I'll give this product to them and be like, trust me, you'll thank me in about 20 minutes. It really, really helps."

    Get a pack of two from Walmart for $4.97.
