As fashion and beauty editors-in-residence, we spend most of our days trying to track down that next best thing—the newest eyeliner flick, pant flair, contouring blend (still lost on that one, tbh)but there’s something to say about the staples: that perfect bag, jean, boot, bottle of wine…the things that keep you grounded, you know? So when it comes to beauty, we have our go-tos on auto replenishment, as it seems most cosmetic-wearers do. So, in a search to find our next makeup staple, we asked the big-gun beauty retailers what their customers ordered most. From cult classics to green beauty, here’s what the people wanted (and bought).




MAC Lipstick in Nude(s): The product that made MAC famous: the iconic lipstick’s varying nude tones and finishes offer lips of every skin tone that perfect barely-there boost.

Nars Blush in Orgasm: An ultimate cult-classic and Nars’ bestselling blush, the “peachy-pink” sheer shade makes you look, well, fresh from the sheets.

Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara: A little piece of Karl for a fraction of the price. Combining long and short bristles, the volumizing mascara dramatically lengthens, lifts, and plumps lashes.



BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop: High shine without the glitter, BECCA’s Pressed Highlighter mixes pigments with liquids for a creamy, natural glow.

Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder: Made of French cashmere talc, the featherlight, oil-free powder creates the perfect cake-free base layer for long-lasting makeup.

NARS Laguna Bronzer: Cue: Brazilian beach goddess.

Credo: The Clean Beauty Favorites

Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Moisturizing Face Sunscreen: A clean skincare swap for fan favorites like Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer and Estee Lauder’s Day Wear BB, the tinted moisturizer contains youth-promoting antioxidants and broad spectrum SPF 30 protection.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer: RMS Beauty’s top seller, the ultra-sheer, pearly luminizer gives a glowy finish to all skintones. Made with only natural ingredients, it highlights without adding unwanted sparkle.

Lily Lolo Mascara: Vegan, organic, and perfect for sensitive eyes, Lily Lolo Mascara volumizes, lengthens, and defines lashes. Additional bragging rights: it’s a winner of the Green Beauty Bible Award.



Christian Louboutin Beauty Les Yeux Noirs: Worth it for the case alone, Louboutin’s inky-black formula and silicone bristles evenly lift and lengthen lashes for a high-def look.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Stick Glistening Illuminator: Your one-stop swipe for glowy, gorgeous skin. (And it’s really cute, too.)

Lipstick Queen Lip of Luxury Duo in You Kid & Entourage: A Net-a-Porter exclusive, the velvety lipstick duo offers the best of both worlds with a high-shine burgundy and a creamy matte nude.


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick: From blue to black to blush, Kat Von D’s long-lasting, matte-drying, 42-shade lipstick collection keeps you covered all day and all night.

Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette - Rose Gold Edition: The 18-hued palette (with shades called “Bae,” “Trust Fund,” and “#Blessed,” natch) offers a wide assortment of neutral mattes, chrome pressed pearl tones, and metallics for a buildable, versatile look.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation: Originally developed for TV and film, the HD liquid foundation offers next-to-skin seamless coverage—for on and off screen.
