All the Things We Bought Because Byrdie Editors Told Us To
Hey, Byrdie fam! It's Who What Wear market editor Nicole here playing beauty editor for the day. If you didn't already know, our two sites (along with MyDomaine and College Fashionista) are sister brands, which means we all share a parent company, Clique Brands.
Aside from the above, our editors also all share offices in both NYC and L.A. and get to sit close to each other (and I mean very close). In fact, I can hear Byrdie editor Hallie Gould typing her version of this story as we speak, which actually brings me to the reason I'm here. Seeing as we already get all our recs from each other for both beauty and fashion, respectively, we recently had the (admittedly genius) idea to do the first-ever Who What Wear and Byrdie story swap, where our editors share their favourite purchases they made because of one another. Here on Byrdie, our team of fashion editors and I will be dishing out all our favourite products that we got from either simply reading Byrdie or getting in-person advice from their team, and vice versa on Who What Wear. To read about and shop all our picks, simply continue on below!
"As the one person in our entire office who probably knows the least about beauty, I think I rely more on the Byrdie team than any reader really should. That said, my number one favourite recommendation I've gotten from them has been my Charlotte Tilbury bar of gold, which now comes in a palette of three. I love the next-level glow it gives my skin (of course, after forcing them to give me a tutorial on how to use highlighter in the first place). I even never knew you could get complimented on highlighter until I started using it—but apparently that's a thing when you wear good makeup."
"Until I was introduced to By Terry, I don't even think I had a favourite mascara because I thought they were all the same. Clearly, I was wrong because the Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara might be the best thing that ever happened to my makeup routine."
"After I kept seeing mentions of the Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask ($76) by Faith Xue, I finally bought it to use leading up to my wedding. It makes my skin look smooth and fresh and doesn't burn when it's on (like I find some other masks to do)."
"I always thought this was a ridiculous amount of money to spend on concealer, but I couldn't resist the hype. Now that I own it, I realise that it's a bottomless tube that may never run out. (Oh, and it's as good as everyone says it is.)"
"I pretty much stick to neutral-coloured lipsticks, and since that can get boring, I'm always game to try a new one. This Kosås one became an instant favorite of mine—it's the perfect pink colour and it feels like a moisturising lip balm."
"I immediately purchased this serum after Byrdie's beauty director, Deven Hopp, said it 'changed her skin forever,' and now it's the only moisturiser I use on my face."
"Thanks to the queen of highlighting Faith Xue, I swear by this affordable strobing stick."
"I now live and die by Tata Harper's skincare products. I wear the brand's moisturising mask every night, and I swear it's helped smooth out my dry skin."
"Blonde hair is hard work, and I always want my hair to be as cool-toned as possible, which is why I'm a devotee to R+Co's blonde shampoo and conditioner."
"I never took the idea of a signature scent seriously, but Santal, my god. It's a scent that every editor seems to be addicted to and honestly, I'm right there with them."
"I'm obsessed with this serum by Caudalie, which helps lighten my post-acne marks and is also super moisturising. I use it twice a day and may never stop buying it."
"I had been looking for a great eye cream, so naturally I went to Byrdie to find out what I should buy. This cream kept popping up in multiple stories—and also has amazing Sephora reviews—so I knew it was a safe bet."
