We Tried Hundreds of Drugstore Products in 2018—These Were Our Favorites



The year has been a doozy for countless reasons, the lowest-stakes of which is probably the bevy of beauty products Team Byrdie tried this year. From moisturizers to dry shampoos to highlighters, we tested and reviewed thousands of items. Some broke us out, some were totally forgettable, but a select few blew our minds. Those are the products to which this list is dedicated.

Admittedly, some of our favorite products of the year were pretty damn pricey, like Sisley Black Rose lip and eye twists ($50 each) and Shani Darden Texture Reform ($95). But not everything we tried and loved was so budget-breaking. The following 17 products, which we discovered in 2018 and became genuinely obsessed with, are all available at the drugstore.
