The Products Beauty Editors Actually Shop For

From interviewing the industry's hottest influencers to getting personal invites to fashion shows and events, it's pretty safe to say that the life of a beauty editor, although often grueling, definitely has its perks. The best part? Getting brand-spanking-new products sent right to your door (or desk, rather).

Thanks to an endless supply of moisturizers, eyeliners, lipsticks, and just about every other kind of product imaginable, most editors don't have to shell out for supplies very often. This means when they do splurge on a product, it's got to be good.

So we thought we'd ask some of our favorite editors what they think is worth cashing out for. I'll be honest — I've already added most of these holy grail items to my shopping list. Click through, and let the beauty-product envy ensue. If there were ever a perfect time to #treatyoself, it'd be now.
