Reddit is the best beauty-obsessed friend you never knew you had. I'm telling you: These users do not pull punches when it comes to critiquing products (R.I.P. the foundation you thought was amazing), which means that if a lip color, eyeliner, or shampoo can pass their crowd-sourced test—it's inevitably a keeper. Here, get to know 10 game-changing finds that have received sparkling reviews amidst its refreshingly-candid forums.
A daily cat eye devotee, I'm forever on the hunt for super-precise, easy-to-apply liquid liners that do. not. move. A unicorn in its own right, Kat Von D's cult-favorite, fray-free brush tip pen is highly-pigmented and waterproof, yet glides across the upper lash line with ease.
Reddit Real Talk: "This is by far, my holy grail liner. I get the sharpest wings from it and it's decent to fix if you make a mistake. I've tried quite a few similar products and they either lack the lasting power, the opacity, or brush tip to get me exactly what I'm looking for."—lilmackie
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, $19; sephora.com.
Stila has mastered the art of the metallic shadow that'll last all. night. long. The foil finish cream delivers a shimmery, buildable wash that won't get super creasy or leave your face covered in sparkles by the end of the night.
Reddit Real Talk: "I was really impressed by how closely the color matches what's in the pot when it's on the eye. You can use the primer provided to thin out the product if you want a less intense or dramatic look, which is also nice."—Sssamanthaa

This water-resistant lip crayon delivers matte color and won't move, yet locks in moisture with its special orange peel wax. Whether you're looking for the perfect nude or a deep burgundy, this range has got you.
Reddit Real Talk: "The Matte Creme Lip Crayon formula is my favorite formula from Bite. It's not 100% matte, but it has a velvety texture and isn't drying. The wear time is long lasting too!"—chiquita-banana

OGX's sulfate-free, organic coconut milk and coconut oil cleanser yields the most delicious-smelling, moisturizing lather. It also strengthens the hair with whipped egg white proteins, which is why women with curly texture are especially keen on it.
Reddit Real Talk: "The OGX shampoo makes [my hair] shiny, fluffy, and voluminous and allows me to skip washing for several days."
OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo, $7.99; ulta.com.
Housed in a sleek leather and silver metal tube, it hardly gets more luxe than this long-lasting, semi-matte lip color. It's no wonder it boasts a slew of Reddit-beloved colors including Rose Dressing, a bright coral pink that makes your skin look glowy.
Reddit Real Talk: "The formula is just outstanding, and I love that I can make it super fucking bright or sheer it down and it looks incredibly either way."—krikimm
Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick, $36; sephora.com.
A liquid-to-matte creamy lip color, it'll feel like a pillow on your pout while sealing in color for transfer-resistant, all-day wear. Plus, it comes in a slew of flattering berry shades.
Reddit Real Talk: "They go on smoothly (make sure to exfoliate them lips, gurls) it's also kind of cushion-y? I don't know how to explain this thoroughly, but they just feel like I'm applying little cushions on my lips. They are no sticky AT ALL (after they dry, but they dry fairly fast)."—unitedstatesofmeow

Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow in The Dreamer, $59; sephora.com.
There's no denying it—the packaging is nothing short of opulent, and that never it hurts. But this deep conditioning tinted oil is so hydrating and the color melts right into your lips for a more natural-looking finish.
Reddit Real Talk: "It looks like the ideal of the color you get from eating a red popsicle. And the oil is gloriously moisturizing, plus it allows me to wear something gloss-esque without absolutely any of the sticky."—reallycoolpeople

Reddit Real Talk: "It's good for reducing the appearance [of pores] as well as doubling as a really nice feeling primer rather than just being a spot treatment."—flippantry
