Things We Finish: Spring 2018

When you work in beauty, a big part of the job is trying out new products, no matter if you already have your favorite face moisturizer or red lipstick.

It’s a rare experience, then, to find yourself coaxing out the last drops from a moisturizer tube, or fumbling with a tiny stub of eyeliner. You gotta really love it. Hence this occasionally recurring feature: Things We Finish, in which we talk about the products that we spoiled beauty junkies squeeze, scrape, or shake ’til there’s nothing left.

Def worth the 78 cents you pay per mask. Great find, Maxine.”
