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.
Here are the 9 beauty finds that made me go “wow.”
