EDITORS' PICKMorgan Stewart
(aka The Beauty Breakdown) We were instantly charmed by Morgan's sweet, down-to-earth personality and just as impressed with her extensive K-beauty expertise and extensive product reviews. She's like the beauty junkie BFF any girl would kill for.
READERS' CHOICELaura Sanchez
She has different makeup looks for all different tastes and explains how to create each look in detail with so much technique. She is one of the few makeup YouTubers who has original talent and above all, a great attitude without losing humility.
EDITORS' PICKWet n Wild
When it comes to bang-for-your-buck beauty, Wet n Wild has always delivered. And this year they've really stepped up their game with makeup that looks and feels a million times more luxe than its measly price tag indicates.
Their products are always gentle, and my skin has never looked better. I only use Neutrogena for my face now.
EDITORS' PICKToo Cool for School
The Korean import's products are as fun to use as they are effective, whether you're tightening your pores with their egg cream mask or tinting your lips with their dinosaur-adorned lip balms. And of course, you'll be hard pressed to find more squee-worthy packaging anywhere else.
READERS' CHOICELime Crime
The Lime Crime lipstick range is to die for. The colors are beautiful, long-lasting and they glide on perfectly.
Farmacy has nailed farm-to-vanity beauty with its range of skin-soothing products that blend natural ingredients with innovative technology. Their hydrating honey mask, cleansing balm and all-in-one salve have already become mainstays in our skin care routines.
I've been a longtime customer of Origins. All of their products are high quality, naturally derived and make you feel so good all over.
Between the brand's luminous blush, skin-perfecting finishing powder and Instagram-filter-like primer, Becca has pretty much perfected the coveted lit-from-within glow.
M.A.C. tries to be all things for all women-- and it does! It's a brand that is not intimidating, non-judgmental and makes using makeup as much fun as possible.
EDITORS' PICKOlay Duo Dual-Sided Body Cleanser
This next-level loofah makes multitasking in the shower a cinch. One side cleanses with heavenly scented suds, while the other side exfoliates skin to soft, smooth perfection.
HONORABLE MENTIONLano Golden Dry Skin Salve
We give Lano, a new-to-the-U.S. Aussie brand, credit for making lanolin cool again. Sure, the skin-repairing ingredient has been around forever, but has it ever looked as chic or felt as luxe? Rub a little bit of this all-purpose balm onto skin anywhere to make dryness, itchiness and irritation a thing of the past.
EDITORS' PICKNerd Acne Treatment System
Fighting acne has never been chic -- until now. From the minimialist packaging to the on-trend (and effective!) probiotic ingredients, everything about this trio of products is flat-out fantastic. And, most importantly, it really does get rid of zits.
HONORABLE MENTIONLa Prairie Line Interception Power Duo
You want your day and night cream to work together like Matt and Ben, and that's why this duo is so special: You get two products in one handy package, and they work synergistically. The day serum blocks wrinkle-causing rays and softens expression lines, while the night formula relaxes vertical lines.
EDITORS' PICKDyson Supersonic
We've never seen a blow-dryer quite like the Dyson -- and its looks are not deceiving. A few of this device's bells and whistles include its ability to measure air temperature 20 times each second to ensure your strands don't get fried and patented technology that produces a steady, high-pressure stream of air, so even thick hair dries before you can utter the word "Supersonic."
HONORABLE MENTIONPantene Pro-V Dream Care Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo
Thirty years in the making, this shampoo boasts technology that strengthens and hydrates strands with every wash for a snarl-free finish.
EDITORS' PICKPat McGrath Lust 004 Kit
This mother of all lip kits is a must-have for any serious makeup-lover. You get two shades of matte lipstick, a liquid shimmer and the finest glitter imaginable. Not only are glitter lips the key to your most-liked selfie, they're also surprisingly comfortable to wear.
HONORABLE MENTIONDr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30
This green cream is pure skin-perfecting magic. It's a moisturizer that also evens out tone, covers blemishes and creates a perfect skin canvas -- you can almost forget foundation.
