I Try Hundreds of Products for Work, But I Always Come Back to These Ones

Ask any beauty editor what the perks of the job are and you'd be hard-pressed to find one who wouldn't say that it's the free products. There's no doubt that having the chance to test out new launchescult beauty buys and celebrity favourites on a weekly basis is pretty incredible—and it's definitely one of my favourite things about my job.

But due to the sheer volume of new products landing at Who What Wear HQ each week, I've had to learn to be pretty swift at identifying what makeupskincare and hair products will and won't work for me. I'll try anything once (which has definitely resulted in some unusual makeup looks and unwanted skin reactions), but at this stage in my career, I tend to have a pretty good steer on what I like.

Although I might be all about the bright eye shadow and lip gloss right now (and raving about a new facial or nail colour next week), there are certain products that have stood the test of time for me and that I come back to on a regular basis. Of course, the list is ever-growing, as I discover more new beauty products along the way, but for now, keep scrolling to shop 36 of my all-time favourite beauty products.
