42 Things We Would Buy Right This Second From Nordstrom, Amazon, and Sephora

Erin Jahns

Despite the fact that Courtney and I basically eat, sleep, breathe, drink, meditate, and talk our faces blue about all things beauty, we still really love it. And, believe it or not, we still really love to shop for it. Or rather, we love to tell our friends, family, and you all what to shop for on our behalf. (Lord help us if we obtain any more beauty products than we're currently already drowning in.)

Scrolling through the best beauty offerings on Nordstrom, Amazon, and Sephora on a daily, sometime thrice-daily, basis is our ultimate pastime, and from the latest and greatest dry shampoos and eye shadows to the hair and face masks that have resurrected us from the almost dead, there's so much to want and shop at our fave beauty retailers.

So, somewhat routinely, we have to product-vomit all of our latest shopping recs in your direction at a rapid-fire pace. (Sorry, not sorry.) Ahead, we're sharing 42 beauty products we would buy right this second from Nordstrom, Amazon, and Sephora and why you need every last one of them in just a sentence of two. (This is shopping efficiency at it's finest, folks.) Keep scrolling!

This new powder-cream shadow hybrid is the best way to extend the magic of summer into fall and winter. 

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in FU$$Y ($18)

Ole Henriksen's PHAT new facial debut does to your complexion what Phat Farm did to your style street cred in junior high (major boost).

Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Foundation Brush ($55)

MAC Cosmetics MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist ($24)

When I was a broke college student, I'd spritz this on my face before any other skincare, and it allowed me to use less product. Still a fan of this method.

I wear these while vegging on the couch in the evenings, and they are so soothing and make my under-eyes brighter.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser ($17)
