Let’s be honest. It isn’t easy keeping up with all the new beauty products that are released every month. Thankfully, the ones you ought to know about come across my desk.
Last month I smoothed on globs of moisturizer, spritzed on dozens of mists, and tried hundreds of lip balms (I know tough job), to bring you a list of the best new beauty products to try.
You should know that I’m pretty hard to impress, so you can trust that these recs are worth the buy.
