19 "Boring" Beauty Products Byrdie Editors Can't Live Without

We're not going to act like we don't get to test and obsess over new, innovative, and super-glamorous beauty products on a daily basis—we do, and we still pinch ourselves regularly because of it. That being said, as much as we may drool over a glittering face mask, a patent lip color, or a scientifically advanced face serum, it doesn't necessarily mean all the above will make it into our cozy daily routines. In fact, far from it. (FYI: This job also makes you the pickiest consumer.) Yes, we love to experiment, play, and keep those ultra-special products in our arsenal for special occasions and indulgences, but some of our most beloved beauty products are actually the antithesis of glamorous, and some would even call them "boring."

Yet, these budget-friendly staples are the bread and butter of our routines, and without them, we'd feel pretty lost. (True story: I may or may not have cried when I thought I lost my beloved wide-tooth comb after a vacation.) Curious to know which "boring" beauty products get us through the day (and night) unscathed and deserve way more credit than we typically give them? Keep reading for 19 of the most basic beauty products we swear we'll use until death do us part.
