Twenty-twenty has been theme park–level wild, and the highs and lows of our beauty routines feel like a roller coaster. I’ve talked to so many people about their quarantine experience with respect to beauty, and the responses have been all over the spectrum. Most people I know have barely touched their makeup bag (or they’re leaning heavily into eye makeup), many people have had some “crisis” relating to their hair (whether it’s stress-induced strand loss, foot-long roots, or at-home cut nightmares), and there’s also been a lot happening with our skin—the good, the not so good, and everything in between.
After surveying all of my beauty-loving co-workers, it became pretty obvious that while we’ve put certain products on hold since March, we’ve been blowing through others at record-breaking speed. Because we’ve collectively accumulated tons of product empties since quarantine began, we decided to put all of our testing to good use by sharing 30 must-have items we’ve used every last drop of (and whether or not we’ll be repurchasing). Keep scrolling to find out which beauty products we’ve used and loved most.
