If you're anything like me, you often find yourself pretty torn when it comes to the
best new beauty products on the market. On one hand, I'm really intrigued by all the new makeup trends and skincare products, especially since ingredients are often headed toward the more natural side of things lately, which thrills me like nothing else.
On the other hand, I already know what works for me, and I already have a makeup bag full of products that I can rely on. Translation: If I take a shot on a new product and it
doesn't do anything for me, I've just wasted part of my paycheck on something I'll probably never use again. And there's a little extra sting that comes from breaking the bank on a bad beauty choice.
Thankfully, though, the
Reddit beauty boards totally have your back (and your budget) on this one. This is where some of the most knowledgeable makeup enthusiasts on the Internet go to discuss products and beauty — their favorites, their holy grails, their disappointments, their opinions on the most overrated picks, and occasionally, their favorite new products they can't stop raving about. Best of all, since it's just casual people having a casual discussion, you know that their opinions and insights are honest, reliable, and really useful.
