    Chances are you have a drawer or cabinet at home that's overflowing with makeup products. But, let's be honest: You probably don't use all (or even most) of 'em. So, instead of wasting any more of your hard-earned cash on trial and error, stick to the 15 tried-and-true beauty buys that Chicago store owners can't keep on their shelves — including their own go-to secret formulas.

    We're told Kryolan customers can't get enough of its High Gloss Brilliant Lip Shine, while Aaron Pietrykowski of Aaron's Apothecary says every Chicago gal needs a sodium-hyaluronate product (translation: a serious moisture booster), like Malin + Goetz' Replenishing Serum, to get through a Windy City winter. Now, it's time to toss some of that useless inventory and make room for these fabulous-yet-functional finds that are shopper tested and Chicago approved. The only question, now: What are you going to do with all that extra space?
