When it comes to makeup and skincare brands backed by celebrities, you can’t help but feel a tad skeptical about how legit they are. Snooki and Kardashian tanning lotions aside, what is the real deal with products from celebrities? (Sorry guys, but c’mon.) Are they actually good? Are they overpriced? And let’s be real, are they junk or nah? It turns out celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did their homework, gave a stab at the beauty thing, and are actually rocking the hell out of it.
We spoke to several makeup artists who deal with these products on a daily basis, and are constantly trying new ones celebs have to offer. They know what’s flying off the shelves and what’s collecting dust. Take it from these guys, these products will give you a bang for your buck and make you look and feel amazing.
Kylie Jenner Lip Kit by Kylie JennerThe Kylie Jenner App
“This is a product I haven’t tried yet, but am on the list for. This has to be Kylie’s most genius business venture yet. There is no doubt in my mind that this product will rule the lip color industry. She’s really pioneered the matte lip trend and honed in on the taupes, nudes, and vamps. I’m sure this will be a liquid lip which has always need my fave and I know she’s done her homework on this. I can’t wait for it to launch.” -Andi Metro, @andimetro
