BOBBI BROWN NAVY & NUDE EYE PALETTE
Andrea Lavinthal, Style Director: Who doesn’t need eight eye shadows for a weekend at the Jersey Shore? This limited-edition compact houses the most perfect mix of neutral hues (including shimmery, sparkly and metallic shades), plus a gorgeous midnight blue one that I use as liner. It’s no wonder the double-decker palette regularly goes “missing” in my beach house.

PETER THOMAS ROTH CC CREAM
Andrea: All-in-one CC creams are the shishito pepper of the beauty world – superhot and everywhere right now. This is my new favorite formula, thanks to the addition of a vitamin C-packed ingredient called camu camu, which really helps even out your complexion and make skin look firmer and brighter. I also love that the tinted lotion has SPF 30, plus loads of free radical-fighting antioxidants.

PACIFICA CLEANSING WIPES
Zoë: How do I use these while on vacation? Let me count the ways: to remove sunscreen after a day at the beach, as a face wash replacement, as a hand sanitizer, to wake myself up after an overnight flight and I even stick one of the yummy-smelling sheets in my luggage when I get home to freshen up my suitcase post-trip. Now do you understand why I buy them in bulk?

LAURA MERCIER EYELASH CURLER
Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: Eyelash curling is an essential part of my “Jet lag? What jet lag?” bright-eyed beauty routine, but standard curlers are unwieldy. Laura Mercier’s mini curler packs a major punch that belies its mini size.

BENEFIT CABANA GLAMA
Alex: On my honeymoon, I only packed this, eyeliner and mascara – and it was all I needed for a laid-back, perfectly bronzed glow. I also love the tiny versions of Benefit’s best-selling products – they’re perfect to pop out of the kits and drop in your quart-size baggie.

L'OCCITANE PILLOW MIST
Brittany Talarico, Associate Editor: No matter how luxe your accommodations are, nothing compares to sleeping in your own bed. Luckily, I came up with the perfect travel solution – this lavender pillow mist. Not only does it smell amazing, but it also helps you relax, which is the whole point of vacation. Plus, at 3.4 fl. oz. the bottle meets TSA guidelines, so you can carry it on the plane with you (and even spritz it on that questionable pillow the flight attendants hand out).

C. WONDER TRAVEL POUCH
Brittany: I’ve been using the same toiletry bag since college, and as hard as it was to part with, I needed an upgrade. Enter this colorful pouch. The nylon fabric is durable and easy to wipe clean, plus the case can go from your carry-on to your beach bag to your suitcase. And with the on-trend color-block pattern and gold-plated plaque, I might even use it as a casual clutch.

NATURAL LIFE POMPOM SHORTS
Andrea: I know they’re not a beauty product, but these tie-dye shorts are so damn cute and comfortable, I just had to share them. I brought this blue-and-white pair on a recent trip to Jamaica and wore them on the beach, at happy hour and even to bed.
