Here at RZHQ, we love trying new beauty products—and it’s not lost on us that we’re lucky to have access to the latest and greatest from tried-and-true brands as well as the opportunity to discover emerging lines. But what good would it be if we kept our of-the-moment faves to ourselves? Each month, we share our current obsessions in hopes that you’ll love them just as much as we do. Ahead, our top picks for July.
Editor's Beauty Picks: July
Tata Harper Concentrated Brightening Essence
"I use this Tata Harper essence at least twice a day to freshen up my skin. The scent makes me feel like I'm getting quick spa facial each time."
—Rachel Zoe, Editor in Chief
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer
"For summer—especially in California—it's essential to use a face moisturizer with sunscreen. I love this all-natural lotion from Beautycounter because it's slightly tinted, really lightweight and has SPF 20."
—Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor
Pixi by Petra
"I always do my makeup on the go, so having multipurpose products is key. This Pixi MultiBalm stick is compact enough to keep in my bag at all times and really does it all. I love that I can swipe it on my eyes, cheeks and lips, blend with my fingers and go."
—Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor
"I became addicted to eyelash extensions this spring and maintained them for three solid, blissful months. I recently (and begrudgingly) phased them out and have been hell-bent on re-creating the fluttery effect more naturally. This conditioner has amped up the length and fullness of my lashes after a few short weeks—so much so, a girlfriend just asked me the other day if I got extensions again."
—Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor
"My weekday makeup regimen is pretty minimal—concealer, eyeliner, lip balm and now, Glossier Haloscope highlighter. I snagged the Topaz shade for a subtle bronze glow on my sun-deprived skin, and it's the perfect pick-me-up for summer."
—Jaclyn Decell, Social Media Manager
Pro Hair Dryer
"I recently upgraded to the Harry Josh blow-dryer and my hair is seriously thanking me for it. The dry time is cut in half (which is saying a lot—a perfectly smooth blow-out can take me up to an hour), plus my strands are silkier and seemingly less damaged post-heat. It's a splurge but entirely worth it. It's also lightweight and great for travel."
—Laura Lajiness, New York Editor
Mesmerizing Mineral Palette
Pixi by Petra
"This is the best affordable eye-shadow palette out there. The neutral bronze hues have a hint of shimmer in them, making them pretty yet practical for everyday wear. The pigmentation is great and the texture is so soft and smooth."
—Amy Lee, Associate Fashion Editor
Facial Toning Device
"Every time I comment on a friend's glowing skin, it turns out she's been using this toning device. I've finally started using it just this week, and I'm already noticing a more youthful appearance."
—Erin Nicole, Editor
"My summer beauty routine simply involves sunglasses, a lip stain and a memorable fragrance—who has time for much else when the beach is calling? I adore this scent as it features gardenia, jasmine and neroli, all of which remind me of being barefoot on vacation."
—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
