One of the major perks of life as an editor? There's always tons of beauty inspiration flashing across our screens in the form of DIY tutorials — and across our desks via just-delivered boxes of freebies (pinch us, we know we're lucky!). Of course, not everything that we read about or test out makes it into our everyday beauty routines. But, when a winning formula does come along, it becomes a permanent addition to our makeup bag. And suddenly, it's hard to remember a time when we ever lived without it. Such is the case with the following top eight products currently crowding the bathroom counter of San Francisco editor Katie Hintz-Zambrano. From a nail-polish remover that works wonders and also smells good (she promises!) to killer products spun out by new and impressive based-in-the-Bay beauty companies, click through and see KHZ's top beauty picks!
