After weighing in on the celebrity shower debate, the "WAP" rapper asked her fans if they'd like to "shower at my place" after sharing a peek at her massive selection of bath products. From the piles of Dove bar soap and rows of body wash to the expansive lotion and scrub selections, we're pretty sure Cardi's at-home drugstore will have everyone answering her question with a resounding "yes."

While her son was sick with strep throat, the actress purged products in her beauty collection to narrow it down to two (very packed!) medicine cabinets. "I feel way lighter," she said on Instagram. Among her favorites that made the cut: iS Clinical Cleansing Complex, iS Clinical Active Serum, Sisley Paris Black Rose Facial Oil, Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Dermalogica Sleep Cocoon and multiple Sisley Paris moisturizers.

The actress overhauled her beauty cabinet and did a serious edit to make sure she only held on to her essentials. Among the products that made the cut? Charlotte Tilbury's glow-boosting face primer, Stila's cream blush, La Mer lip balm, Caudalie's Beauty Elixir, Urban Decay lip liner, Dior mascara, Marc Jacobs Beauty highlighter and Christian Louboutin lipstick. (Her biggest bargain? A Burt's Bees lip balm!)

To no one's surprise, Kylie Jenner keeps plenty of Kylie Cosmetics and KKW Beauty products front and center on her makeup counter (including the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Extended Palette, KKW Beauty Contour Palette and KKW Beauty Baking Powders), but that's not all she loves.

Kylie appears to use a combination of the Beautyblender Bounce Foundation and Too Faced Born This Way Foundation as her base. She also gravitates towards the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette and holds onto her makeup artist Hrush Achemyan's Tarte palette (which was a limited edition launch a few years ago).

The self-proclaimed beauty junkie, who tells Into the Gloss she's obsessed with Sephora, swears by face masks (like MZ Skincare's gold undereye masks) and Chenot skincare, which she discovered while on vacation in Italy.

Williams loves makeup as well, saying she turns to Nars for concealer, Huda Beauty for lip products and Anastasia Beverly Hills to fill in her brows.

Katherine recently discovered Eminence skincare, and hasn't stopped using it thanks to the glowing results she's seen.

Her top picks include the Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser, Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster, Bamboo Firming Fluid, Bright Skin Moisturizer and Bearberry Eye Repair cream.

Kim Kardashian stores her makeup just like the rest of us — in a cluttered drawer. The star shared a snap of her go-to preoducts with the caption "When did I become this person?" Her makeup stash features her iconic KKW Beauty Creme Contour and Highlighter kit and if you look closely there seems to be what looks like a new addition to her line: a KKW Beauty dual-sided powder brush (middle right). Could this mean the next product we'll be dying to get our hands on will be a powder? A few other of her faves include: Kylie Cosmetics Kylighters, Kylie Cosmetics Take Me on Vacation KyShadow, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, and Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer.

The actress just launched her very own makeup line with BH Cosmetics, Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale, so it makes perfect sense she has incorporated some of the collection's core products into her everyday beauty routine. Her current fave? The Beach Goddess Eye & Cheek palette, which she tops with a few coats of M.A.C Cosmetics In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara.

The drama of the Pretty Little Liars star's mega lashes starts before the first swipe, thanks to of a studded eyelash curler and a gilded tube of mascara. But Hale's look wouldn't be complete without a lip look Aria would be proud of: a moody, wine-colored pout.

The cure-all for jet lag? Just ask the supermodel, who knows a thing or two about cross-country flights. "Baby aspirin, one a day because I'm old, arnica because I am coated in bruises, La Mer because I am dry as a bone and peel pads because my skin is made of salt right now. Eye makeup remover and vodka complete the kit," she shared on Instagram.
