Confession: I’m something of a hoarder when it comes to beauty products. The eyeshadow palette I used on my wedding day, for instance, is still in my makeup drawer. And I’ll be celebrating my sixth anniversary this year. Cringe, I know.
Like most people, I have trouble purging, and nowhere is that more apparent than in my stash of beauty products under my sink. But unlike that sweater that doesn’t fit anymore or a bag you haven’t used in years, makeup has a shelf life and needs to tossed as it truly does expire…and if you don’t, it can lead to eye infections or skin breakouts and rashes. Which is never a good look. (Go here to find out when to replace everything from lipstick to eyeshadow.)
So, let’s avoid putting grimy old makeup on our pretty faces and instead splurge on new stock this year. Below you’ll find 20 of the best new products we could find, starting at just $5. Whether you are in desperate need of MAC’s new Lib Scrubtious (my chapped lips are begging for this!) or want a thickening brow primer (Benefit’s Browow is the best there is!), we’ve got all of your beauty bases covered.
