Whether or not you work in the beauty industry, it's pretty obvious that the market is oversaturated at the moment.

From haircare to skincare, makeup, and everything else in-between, having a variety of products to choose from is an understatement — it goes without saying that it can be difficult to narrow down the best of the best across categories. But that's where beauty editors come in.

After testing dozens (seriously) of products each month, I want to share the eight that have currently made their permanent mark on my vanity, both old and new. Trust me — you're about to be obsessed, too.

Maui Moisture Heal & Hydrate Shea Butter Hair Mask

$10; sallybeauty.com

If there's one thing my hair is always going to do, it's get dry. So a deep conditioner is always a must in my haircare regiment. But let's be honest: not all deep conditioners are made the same. I find a lot just sit on top of my hair and don't necessarily penetrate my strands, but this Maui Moisture joint makes all the difference. Formulated with aloe vera juice as the first ingredient, the blend of coconut oil, shea butter, and pure macadamia oil leave my hair soft as ever once I get out from under my steamer. And at this price point, does it really get any better?

Lancôme Le 8 Hypnôse Mascara

$29; ulta.com

I have a secret, but you can't tell anyone until June 1: Lancôme is launching a new mascara, Le 8 Hypnôse Mascara. The serum-infused formula delivers nourishing ingredients to lashes, leaving them soft and supple, even as it leaves you with mega volume and length. Both Zendaya and Amanda Seyfried are as amped about it as I am, but until it's lauched, go grab the brand's Hypnôse Buildable Volume Mascara in the meantime.
