All The Beauty Products We Finished Last Month & Bought Again

product review

beauty empties

We’ll admit, one major perk of working at HB HQ, a literal playground for the beauty-obsessed, is the influx of products and samples we get to test and trial regularly so you don’t have to. And since our beauty desks are rarely ever bare, we figured it’d be fun to compile monthly round-ups of our beauty empties — all the items that we *literally* scraped, squeezed, and loved until the last drop to hopefully inspire your next online shop. Scroll down for our April star picks *adds to cart…again*

Remi Mobolade, Global PR Manager

“This is a current empty that I need to restock ASAP. I’m in love with the combination of the jelly-like texture that seals in moisture and its heavenly nostalgic smell that makes for a super enjoyable night-time skin routine.”

Kevyn Aucoin Glass Glow Face and Body Gloss, $32

“This is what glass skin dreams are made of. I love applying this as the last step in my complexion routine to give the dewiest, almost ‘post-yoga’ glow on the high points of my face. It’s the texture for me.”

Kosas Air Brow Tinted Volumizing Treatment Gel, $22

“This is a newbie to my collection, but I already know that this is something I’ll be repurchasing over and over. In my opinion, this double-duty brow gel truly volumizes and holds my brows in place like no other gel I’ve used before. I’m obsessed.”

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops, $34

“This lightweight serum gel gives gorgeous, glowy skin. I love how it gives surface-level radiance while enhancing the skin and unveils a more lit-from-within glow. It contains niacinamide, watermelon, and hyaluronic acid to brighten, hydrate and tackle hyperpigmentation. It’s also quite versatile and can be incorporated into your routine in various ways. Use it as a serum, makeup primer, or over your no-makeup makeup look for a glossy finish.”

Miriam Quevedo Black Baccara Hair Multiplying Mask, $40

“I use both the hair multiplying mask and shampoo from the Black Baccara range — they smell incredible and make my hair feel so good! This restorative, bond-building formula is great for brittle and weak hair, and literally back-pedals existing damage while stimulating growth. You notice a difference in your hair’s texture immediately after use, and it smells incredible!”

Eucerin Dermopurifyer Oil Purifier Cleansing Gel, $30

“This is an amazing gentle yet clarifying cleanser, and I love that it comes in a pump form for easy dispensing. It’s a soap-free, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic formula that’s brilliant for oily and blemish-prone skin. It’s not harsh or drying on the skin and does a good job in keeping your pores clear.”

Eleanor Mallon, Content Writer & Trend Reporter

Romer Skincare Cleanse, $44

“This cleansing oil is so hydrating and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight, only nourished. It lathers into a rich consistency and removes all of my makeup with ease. I use it as the first step in my double cleansing routine with a muslin cloth or microfibre towel. It’s also clean and sustainable, which is great.”

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Stress Rescue Super Serum, $74

“I really like Dr. Dennis Gross’ products as I feel like his formulas come through and deliver on their promises. This serum has a slightly thicker consistency and leaves my skin looking plump. I like to use it after I exfoliate as I feel that it recovers my skin after any potent AHAs or BHAs and helps relieve redness.”

Huxley Secret of Sahara Mask: Oil and Extract, $19.50 for 3 Pack

“Huxley’s masks are a go-to when my skin requires a moisture and glow boost. The microfiber sheet mask essence is drenched with prickly pear seed oil and cactus extract for next-level hydration that really seeps into the skin. It’s literally like a thirst-quenching drink for a parched complexion.”

Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Full Coverage Waterproof Liquid Concealer, $24

“This is the one product I stock up on religiously. It’s the saturated pigments for me that camouflage all evidence of a late-night with just a single coat. I will say it does tend to dry pretty quickly so, blend it out as soon as you apply. Set it with a flesh-colored loose powder and then seal with a pressed powder too for zero flashback.”

Chanel Baume Essential Multi-Use Transparent Stick, $45

“She’s a little expenny, I know, but this stick takes any beauty look from bland to boujee. There’s no OTT glitter or sparkles in this, so it’s a great buy for makeup minimalists. It creates sheer, silky, and featherlight strobes that are subtle, look natural and add the most delicate dewiness to your facial high-planes. I recommend applying it with your fingertips instead of gliding it on to prevent your makeup from shifting.”
