Here, our top picks for May.


Editor's Beauty Picks: May

Matte Revolution in Glastonberry


Charlotte Tilbury

"Charlotte Tilbury's Glastonberry is my newest obsession for a bordeaux lip. Dab on a little with your fingertip for day, or apply more heavily with liner for night."

Rachel Zoe, Editor in Chief

Reveal Color-Correcting Foundation



"I've been struggling with dark spots from old blemishes and this is a great lightweight foundation that has buildable coverage. I just dab it on my problem spots during the day and build up for evening for a flawless canvas. It's never cakey and immediately blends into the skin."

Amy Lee, Associate Fashion Editor

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream


Sol de Janeiro

"A body product that promises to give me the skin of a Brazilian beauty gets my attention. One that smells as summery as this bright little jar will live on my bathroom counter all season."

Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor

Lipstick in Candy Yum-Yum



"I'm officially branching out and vow to start wearing bright lipstick effective immediately. This MAC shade is so incredible—I plan to use it to dress up my uniform of a T-shirt and jeans this month."

Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor

Luna Sleeping Night Oil


Sunday Riley

"Our beauty editor recommended I try this all-natural night oil, and I've already seen a marked improvement in my skin tone and texture."

Erin Nicole, Red Carpet Editor

101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm


Lano Lanolips

"I'm all about streamlining my medicine cabinet, so this multitasking balm is my new favorite product. I've been slathering it on my lips, cuticles, under-eye area and all over my face as a hydrating night treatment."

—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director

All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray


Urban Decay

"This setting spray has seen me through two weekend music festivals in the last month, and now I'm not sure how I ever managed without it. It really lives up to its promise of keeping your makeup intact all day long (desert sun and dust storms notwithstanding)."

—Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor

Don’t Blow It


Bumble and Bumble

"I just started using this styling cream when I don't feel like blow-drying my hair. It lets me keep my natural wavy texture without the usual frizz."

Sam Corbett, Graphic Designer

Hydraboost Eye



"After recently discovering how dehydrated my skin is, I’m trying to up my moisturizing game in every way. This eye cream is ultra-hydrating, packed with vitamins and super lightweight."

Laura Lajiness, New York Editor
