Here at Editorialist, we test hundreds, if not thousands, of makeup products each year. From indie newbies to luxurious cult favorites, it’s our job to keep you informed of the formulas that are truly deserving of your time, attention, and money. And while we love a beauty buy that packs a good punch, what really gets us excited is a product that can tackle a multitude of issues—like sun protection, skincare benefits, and flawless coverage—in one. Just like a performer who has mastered the art of dancing, singing, and acting (we’re looking at you, Lady Gaga), we lovingly refer to these products as our Triple Threats—the true workhorses of our makeup routines.
From an eyeshadow stick that you can use as a color corrector, blush, and lipstick, to a setting powder that blurs pores, nourishes skin, and provides a radiant glow, our team of editors have sorted through hundreds of products to curate the ultimate list of multitasking makeup essentials guaranteed to streamline your beauty routine. So, without further ado, meet the 10 luxury makeup products that earned the top spot in our inaugural Triple Threat Beauty Awards.
