This has been one helluva year for beauty: We baked
our faces; gold took over Fashion Week
; Kylie Jenner dropped a highly anticipated launch
; and we tried scores and scores of new products. It seems no matter the challenge or trend, the industry keeps coming out with new and innovative takes on your run-of-the-mill hair, skin, and makeup finds — and 2015 was no exception.
As the year comes to a close, we wanted to reflect on the best of everything we've seen and tried, across all categories. And we asked our fellow beauty-editor friends to give us their picks, too. So get ready to block out some time to click through (spoiler alert: this is gonna be a long one), and make a list, because these are the kinds of products you'll want to add to your routine ASAP.
