We all have things we hoard. And for some, the makeup aisle of drugstores and departments stores is what makes them feel like a kid in a candy store. But what do you buy when it's your job to test everything that's out in the market? Below, see what it is that beauty editors actually can't get enough of.
1. Cotton pads

On the top of everyone's list are cotton pads, simply because they can be used for anything and everything.
2. Makeup remover facial wipes

Lipstick is the star product in the makeup arsenal of many beauty editors. "I'll always be obsessed with rosy-nude lipsticks! But whenever I spot gorgeous look-at-me colors, I won't think twice about getting those, as well," says Retty Contreras, Assistant Beauty Editor of Cosmo.ph.
4. Eyebrow makeup
Ira Nopuente, Femalenetwork.com's Associate Fashion and Beauty Editor hoards anything kilay-related—pencil, powder, you name it! "I hope everyone gets to experience brow bliss!" adds Style Bible Managing Editor Nikki Santiago-Rivera.
5. Lip balm

Editors have one in every purse and coat pocket they own!
6. Nail polish
If there’s any beauty product that has taught beauty editors to accept defeat, it would have to be the nail polish. But it’s also the same product that has taught them to accept change, to keep going, and stop at nothing—once it chips, remove, amend, or revise then repeat.
