I’m not a big eyeshadow gal, but this one from Kosas may have changed my tune. It is the easiest eye shadow I’ve ever used with the prettiest neutral shimmery finish. You just swipe across the lid and go—foolproof. I recently brought it on a girls trip to Miami and the whole group wanted in, it’s that good (and universally flattering)! —Dori Price, Freelance Beauty Editor
If you can’t get to an exotic Mediterranean beach this summer, this new fragrance from a centuries-old perfume house in Capri, Italy transports you in one spritz, both in scent and whimsical oceanic bottle design. It envelops you in the aroma of warm, sun-drenched salt air tinged with citrus, herbs and musk, thanks to a blend of notes like bergamot, rosemary, aquatic essence, mint, and yes, salt crystals. —April Franzino, Beauty Director
I used to notice SO much dusty residue in and around our cat litter boxes which concerned me considering that our cats tiny lungs were prob also filled with that stuff! So we made the switch to SmartCat All Natural Clumping Litter. The cats seem satisfied with it and I no longer need to worry about clogging their lungs with nasty dust or cleaning up that dusty mess. And the product is definitely eco-friendly—which is another bonus! —Sue Kakstys, Production Coordinator
This headlamp was absolutely perfect for walking to the wash house at Family Camp in Northern Wisconsin, but back at home, I still love using it when I read in bed! Better light than my bedside lamp, and no funny shadow on my book or journal. you can adjust both the fit and the angle of the light, and it has three levels of brightness, plus a red light setting, which is great for getting to your stargazing spot. —Sarah Smith, Editor in Chief
I know, I know, another celebrity beauty brand. But trust me, this one lives up to the hype. I'm extremely particular about what products I put on my lips (I hate having chapped lips). So when Hailey Bieber’s new Rhode line came out, I was excited to try the peptide lip treatment. It gives my lips the high-powered gloss I love with the hydration I need, and I particularly love the watermelon flavor. Perfect for summer. I often wear it on its own for a glassy yet nourished look. It’s worth getting on the waitlist. —Catharine Malzahn, Beauty Assistant
My nails have been fairly brittle thanks to some gel manicures that I didn’t remove properly (guilty!) but this nail repair system has really helped restore some of my nails' luster. Developed by a dermatologist (Dr. Dana), the three-part system works to nourish nails by hydrating and exfoliating. The kit includes glycolic prep for nail exfoliation, priming wand to remove damaged nail cells, and cuticle oil to strengthen nails. I've been using the system once a week for about a month and I genuinly see a difference in my nails. My ridges appear less pronounced, my nails feel stronger, and they’re definitely shinier! —Emily Goldman, Senior Editor
I'm a big fan of Three Wishes’ line of cereals for a few reasons: The taste and the crunch; the low sugar/high protein nutrition content; that it's gluten-free; and did I mention the taste and the crunch?! With just 6 ingredients and 4 flavors (including cocoa!), Three Wishes cereal is a healthy breakfast treat—and also a nice mix-in for yogurt. —Lisa Bain, Executive Director, Health Newsroom
I had a pair of classic Naot sandals for years, before I finally broke them down and they were unwearable. During that time, I stopped purchasing leather products and thought I would never be able to wear my favorite sandal ever again. I recently discovered the brand has a vegan option made from cork, latex, and microfiber for everyday walking that is completely leather-free! The best part is, the vegan version is just as comfy (if not even more comfortable) than the classic option. They go with anything and are the most comfortable shoe I own! —Arielle Weg, Associate Editor
I’m the type of dry-skinned person who loves a glowy (albeit faux), hydrated complexion. Not just a subtle highlight—I want to be visibly beaming from across the room, which is why I follow a good moisturizer with a primer like this one before going in with a (you guessed it) radiant foundation. This gives me an immediate dewy, moisturized look without feeling too sticky. And that shine stays true even when makeup goes on top. It’s the ideal summer primer, if you ask me. —Kayla Blanton, Freelance Writer
As a makeup amateur, I only stick to a few easy things to put on my face each day. I usually avoid liquid foundations because they tend to feel heavy on my face, but this Almost Makeup Powder from Clinique is as light as your normal finishing powder while also giving you the coverage of a liquid foundation. It’s my go-to for a minimal makeup routine! —Madeleine Haase, Assistant Editor
My obsession with haircare products knows no bounds, but Amika always makes it into my top picks. My new favorite is this in-shower reparative treatment that makes my hair soft, shiny, and strong. And, you truly can’t beat the scent (which actually lingers in your hair after rinsing, unlike most shower products). Simply apply to your hair after a conditioner or mask, and rinse. It’s the fastest route to your best hair day yet. —Shannen Zitz, Editorial Assistant
As much as I’d love to be able to say that I was born with long, voluminous lashes, I have to give all the credit to this mascara. After a years-long search for the perfect mascara (believe me, I’ve tried them all), I finally struck gold about a year ago and have been using this one ever since. The wand has a flat side that first coats your lashes and gives volume before going in with the bristled sides to comb through and lengthen, completely eliminating clumps. Plus, this is the only mascara I’ve that doesn’t run in the D.C. humidity, a surprising (and thoroughly annoying) problem I’ve faced since moving there for college. Total game changer! —Jenn Gonick, Editorial Fellow
