Every Last Drop: The Twenties Club’s Top 10 Beauty Empties

22.03.21

We really do love beauty stuff, don’t we.

Given the state of the world over the past twelve months, it’s been pretty easy to not write about things as superfluous as skincare and makeup. In fact, most days it feels inappropriate for me to talk about those things, but then there are other days where I worry that my content’s too heavy and dark and serious. And then I feel guilty for feeling guilty because, well, things are heavy and dark and serious right now. 

Basically, I want to strike some sort of balance. Balance between the high and the low, between the big moral issues we should be talking about and the mundane nonsense that keeps us sane during those in-between moments. So, in keeping with the latter, I think you should know that my life is significantly worse when I don’t have a full bottle of Bioderma Sensibio H20 and Shani Darden Retinol Reform in my bathroom.

But who cares what I think. What about the PEOPLE. Hundreds of impassioned messages later, here are the ten most popular beauty empties, according to TTC.
