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 new, 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. Here, our top picks for January.
"I've never been able to confidently rock red lipstick, but this gloss has changed that. It's a dramatic shade, but it's shockingly easy to wear. Once you find your red, it's amazing what a must-have it becomes."
—Shannon Nash, Jewelry & Accessories Editor
"After a holiday season filled with way too much eye makeup, I'm religiously applying this natural serum to strengthen my lashes. With any luck I'll look like a doll by Valentine's Day."
—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
"A couple months ago I started to notice fine lines in my forehead, which naturally sent me into a tailspin. I've been using this Kate Somerville retinol treatment for several weeks and the lines have significantly diminished—needless to say, I’m now a devotee."
—Kristi Mikesky, Features Editor
"I love these nail wraps because they give you the look of a glitter mani without the hassle of actually painting on polish. They're easy to stick on and peel right off when I’m over them, unlike glitter lacquers that take forever to remove."
—Samantha Corbett, Graphic Designer
"This revitalizing conditioning balm has been a game-changer for my dry, damaged hair. Recovering from platinum (my regrowth is healthy and strong), I need a conditioner that can stand up to my still-dry ends and really nourish. The concentrated formula is miraculous."
—Laura Lajiness, New York Editor
"Kai Body Glow smells great and the scent is really light (it doesn't give me a headache)."
—Christian David, Art Director
"I'm crazy about the cleanliness of my makeup brushes. I keep a few in rotation and wash them as often as possible. Sigma just launched this genius tower that allows them to hang dry—water drips out of the brush rather than sitting in the base and collecting bacteria. I'm obsessed! (And still dealing with makeup brush OCD.)"
—Stephanie Montes, Senior Beauty Editor
