1. Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez

Play with colorful lip balms, liquid blushes, and shimmering highlights from Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez.

Actress and singer Selena Gomez launched her makeup line, Rare Beauty, at Sephora in 2020. The raved-about collection includes items for the eyes, lips and face, from foundation and concealer to highlighters and eyebrow pencils.

After testing, we love the brand’s Soft Pinch Liquid Blushes that blend seamlessly into the cheeks for a beautiful flush of color and the With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balms that moisturize the lips while leaving behind enough pigment to resemble lipstick.

2. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

Shop top-rated makeup for the eyes, lips, and face from Fenty Beauty by Rihanna.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty launched in Sephora in 2017 and received ample praise for its wide shade ranges in foundations and concealers. Popular complexion products, like the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation and Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer, each come in an impressive 50 shades ranging from very fair neutral to very rich with neutral undertones.

Other highly-rated products from the brand include the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters and Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color, which come in a beautiful selection of colors for the cheeks and lips, respectively. More into skincare? You can also shop Fenty Skin.

3. JLo Beauty by Jennifer Lopez

Add Jennifer Lopez's anti-aging skincare must-haves into your routine with JLo Beauty.

Fans of Jennifer Lopez not only adore her killer performances but also admire the 51-year-old’s youthful-looking skin. It only makes sense that the star launched JLo Beauty, a skincare brand dedicated to anti-aging products because “beauty has no expiration date.” Available at Sephora, the brand has all the products you need to start a skincare routine, from a cleanser to a moisturizer to a sunscreen.

4. Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner

Give your lips the perfect pout with lip kits from Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner.

The youngest daughter of the Kardashian-Jenner clan started her beauty empire with Kylie Cosmetics in 2015 by introducing her signature Matte Lip Kits. The kits, which included a lip liner and matte liquid lipstick, were designed to recreate the overlined, perfect pout that the reality star was famously sporting at the time. Now, the Ulta-sold brand features complexion products like concealer and powder and pops of color for the eyes and cheeks. The reality star ventured into the skincare world with Kylie Skin in 2019, as well.

5. Flawless by Gabrielle Union

Keep your waves, curls, and coils fresh with Flawless by Gabrielle Union.

Best known for her role as Isis in the “Bring It On” film series, Gabrielle Union ventured into hair care in 2017 with the launch of Flawless by Gabrielle Union. The actress-turned-entrepreneur revamped the line in 2020 and it consists of 13 products, including shampoo, conditioner, hair oil, and heat protectant. Anyone can use the products, but the line is designed for those with wavy, curly, or coily hair textures.

After testing the Amazon-sold brand, our favorites are the Hydrating Co-Wash and the Repairing Deep Conditioning Masque, which left our tester’s natural curls feeling moisturized and looking defined and bouncy.

6. About-Face by Halsey

Add electric colors into your makeup routine with About-Face by Halsey.

If you like your makeup to include bright colors and shimmering skin, look no further than singer Halsey’s About-Face line. Designed to evoke creativity and individuality in your makeup routine, the brand launched in 2021 with highlighters, eyeshadows and lip products.

If you buy one thing from the line, Reviewed’s tester recommends the Matte Fluid Eye Paints, which come in six colors and glide onto the eyelids for a super-pigmented, matte, one-and-done eyeshadow look.

7. Haus Laboratories by Lady Gaga

You can find all of Lady Gaga's Haus Laboratories collection on Amazon.

Everyone knows Lady Gaga for her over-the-top outfits and makeup, which led to a frenzy of excitement when the singer and actress launched her makeup line with Amazon in 2019. When we tested Haus Laboratories at Reviewed, we weren’t dazzled by it—it seemed subdued for Gaga. Since the initial launch, the line has expanded to include more products than its initial liquid eyeshadows, lip liners and glosses. Newer products, like the Liquid Eye-Lie-Ner and the Monster Matte Lip Crayons, have thousands of rave reviews on Amazon, with shoppers hyped about the larger collection that allows for bolder, colorful looks.

8. Be Free by Danielle Fishel

Add volume to your hair with Be Free by Danielle Fishel.

Remember Topanga Lawrence from the television series “Boy Meets World”—or, more on topic, her voluminous locks? The actress behind Cory Matthews’ love interest has her own hair line, Be Free by Danielle Fishel, which she launched in 2019. The collection—which features a shampoo, conditioner, scalp refresh and hair mask—claims to be vegan, color-safe, and free of controversial ingredients, like parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

After testing, our reviewer says purchasing from Topanga, err, Fishel’s line is a “no-brainer” and she loved the volume her hair had post-wash.

Alba launched Honest Beauty under the company in 2015 and its products are sold on Amazon and at Target.

“Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown surprised fans with the 2019 launch of Florence by Mills in Ulta. The actress catered the skincare and makeup line toward fellow teens—it’s even been referred to as a “Gen-Z line”—with minimalistic lavender packaging and “no-makeup makeup” products, like a skin tint and cream blush.
