It's no secret we try a lot of products, and while we try not to pick favorites, we're naturally drawn to a few specific brands and formulas that make us feel seen. Such is the case with Fenty Beauty, Pat McGrath Labs, and Flesh-three brands that offer very different formulas and serve different purposes in our lives but still make our hearts skip a beat every time we use them. They're groundbreaking in their own right, and all three create textures and offerings that are innovative and beautiful, no matter the launch.В
So we wanted to round up a few of their most recent must-haves and curated a list of every product we're dying over-and you will too. There are highlighters, eye shadow palettes, foundation sticks, and eye gloss. There are universal shades, liquid luminizers, and a lipstick that looks like your lips but sultrier.
Here's everything you want and more right here. Keep scrolling to see all the goods.В
Fenty BeautyFenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Diamond Milk $18Shop
Fenty's Diamond Milk gloss deliversВ glassy, shimmery shine courtesy of its milky pearl shade. It's like a dewy highlight for your lips. Conditioning shea butter hydrates throughout the entire time you wear it while the peach-vanilla scent is warm and sweet, drenching your lips in a sparkly party. Then again, would you expect any less? It was handpicked by Rihanna and she knows how to rock it.Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette $54 $38Shop
Offering up seven all-new, never-before-seen, metallic highlighter shades, Fenty's newest palette frosts your cheekbones, eyelids, and Cupid's bow with lavenders and icy blues,В as well as fiery coppers and tangerines. Each one is a cream-powder hybrid thatВ practically melts into your skin and blends with zero effort. It's gleamy, glimmery, and perfect.В
These metallic eye-and-lip crayon setsВ can be used as liners as well as shadow and lipstick. It's a truly multitasking product, and the shades are gilded and gorgeous. Our favorites are Frost Bunny, with soft metallics and rose gold. The formula glides on super smooth and creamy, imparting a glaze over whatever surface you choose to use it on. The result is a beautiful, glowy, slightly sheer finish that looks really cool and fresh, especially for the holidays. We're obsessed.Fenty Beauty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette $59Shop
These 16В richly pigmented shades are designed for all skin tones and incorporate warm, cool, and neutral hues. There are smoky options, spicy brights, andВ desert nudes in matte, satin, pearl, metallic, and shimmer finishes-making this paletteВ perfect for your every mood. The formula is long-wear, rich, velvety, and easily blendable, plus it stays put and won't create that annoying lid crease you despise so much.
Fenty Beauty's hyper-limited matteВ liquid lipstick is, in the words of the brand, "the love child of high-impact color and low-maintenance long-wear."В It's soft and weightless and absolutelyВ doesn't budge-even after drinking, eating, and spending a night out on the town. The shades are all head-turning, but we're especially partial to this fire-engine true red, as well as a rosy mauve and chocolate brown, pictured below.
FleshFlesh Hide The Evidence Double Concealer $28Shop
Dark circles are my enemy and the issue I deal with most when it comes to my face. Flesh created a dual-sided pen (combining two shades for better, more natural-looking coverage) that tackles both concealing and color-correcting. Both sides are creamy and lightweight, offering up a light-reflecting formula to smooth and even skin tone on the correcting end, while the cover side produces a cooling sensation upon application. There are pomegranate oil and glycerin to hydrate and brushes at each end for easy, precise application.В
Use this silky liquid highlighter to illuminate and enhance your skin, as it imparts a radiant, ethereal glow with just a few drops. Each bottle contains a high concentration of mica pearls so you can go subtle or layer it on for a bolder, more showstopping look.ВFlesh Fleshpot Eye & Cheek Gloss $20Shop
One of our absolute favorites, thisВ transparent, high-shine, iridescent gloss (with a jelly-like texture) is meant for your eyes, cheeks, and lips-and wherever else you see fit. It has flecks of gold, peach, and pink and offers up a wet finish that adds brightness,В dew, and high shine as you apply it.В Kate Jane Hughes makes the eye gloss trend work, so why can't we?Flesh Fleshy Lips Lipstick in Hungry $18Shop
I am in love with this rich, creamy lipstick formula-especially in the shade Hungry, a reddish,В almost-the-same-as-my-natural-lip pink that's only slightly darker. The formula contains rose-hip, lavender,В and white-tea extracts to keep the texture light and hydrating while you wear it. If you're looking for a moodier pick, try Pucker (below), a grape-jam shade perfect for holiday parties and cold, windy days.В
The formula is thick, but once it's blended, it is so incredible. A little goes a long way, so it'll last forever, and there's a great shade range. Apply it along your inner cheeks (to nixВ redness), down the bridge of your nose, in the center of your chin, and in one quick swipe along the middle of your forehead. That's all you need. Then, use a damp Beautyblender to blend it all out. It offers the perfect sheer-to-medium finish when applied that way, looking glowy and not at all caked on, hello no-makeup, makeup.
Pat McGrathPat McGrath Labs BlitzTrance Lipstick in Nude Romantique $38Shop
McGrath's newest perfect-for-the-holidays launch is an iridescent lipstick that releases a full-coverage crystal coating of color with multidimensional, high-shine effects. It's infused with ultra-reflective pearl pigments to illuminate and hydrate your lips while adding some festive cheer to your look. This color,В Nude Romantique, is aВ coral rose with golden pink pearl, a natural-looking shade with sparkle. OurВ other favorite,В Flesh Fatale (below), is aВ bronzed rose for a spicier neutral finish.
Because McGrath's original highlighters flew off the shelves (I fancy mine my most prized makeup possession), she introduced this trio of pearl-infused, gel-powder highlighters for an even more customizable glow. When applied, each offering in the palette imparts a smooth veil of even color, accentuating your bone structure while combining the best features of powder, cream, and fluid textures.Pat McGrath Labs Lip Fetish Lip Balm in Clear $38Shop
In my humble opinion, there's nothing better than a fancy lip balm. And if you're looking for a subtle, glowy sheen andВ a lot of hydration housed in a golden bullet, this is it. It has a dewy, opaline finish and tons of shea butter to keep your lips moisturized, plump, and soft. TheВ pearlescence and shimmerВ are an added bonus.Pat McGrath Labs Mini MatteTrance Lipstick Trio $25Shop
Pat McGrath took her three best-selling lipstick shades (the formula is richly pigmented with a sensually creamy, powerful pigment) and put them together in a discounted set. This is the perfect present for a friend or, you know, yourself. Each shade is enmeshed in a powder film combined with saturated pigment for lightweight, opaque coverage-and it looks flawless every single time.ВPat McGrath Labs Mothership V Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Seduction $125Shop
All of McGrath's eye shadow palettes are iconic in their own right-and this new color combination is no different. Made up of shades ranging from rose gold and metallic bronze to crimson andВ blackened matte violet, the collection ofВ 10 rich, cream-infused powders are all you need for aВ glamorous, galactic, or sophisticated look (it's up to you).В В
