Revealed: These Are the Best Beauty Products So Far This Year


Here at Byrdie HQ, we're lucky enough to get sent a lot of beauty products to try out. But when trialling new products, we also share a lot of recommendations with each other and listen to what you guys are recommending over in our secret Facebook group, The British Beauty Line.

And because we're really rather nosy when it comes to discovering new beauty, we decided to reach out to the masses and ask Byrdie's loyal social followers what new beauty products you've been loving so far in 2019. Sure, we're still only in January, but if something's already made your #1 spot this year, we're pretty certain it's worth a try.

We had so many responses (thank you)-from cult buys we can all agree on (Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter, we're looking at you) to brand-new and niche discoveries, the results are in. Keep scrolling to see what made the list of your number one beauty product(s) so far this year…
