We’re after savvy time-saving heroes that double, or triple up on function – meaning streamlined makeup bags, less time rifling around for surplus products and diligent formulations that tick numerous boxes.
Who has the time for an 18-step beauty routine when we could be out there kicking ass and taking names? Though we still value solutions that feel luxurious, perform brilliantly and take care of our skin and hair, what we want (what we really, really want) are products that can provide all of these functions, but in record time.
Take our skin for example, we’re wiser than ever on how we should be looking after it – cleansing and exfoliating remain two of the most important steps in our routine, but what if we could tackle both tasks in one hit? Or combine several hair care steps in a single product?
The answer is the “multi-taskers” – hard-working products that deliver on purpose and performance, whilst simultaneously shaving minutes off the time it takes to get ready in the morning. Interested? Here’s our edit of the best.

I’m a Makeup Minimalist, and This $16 Lip Color Is the Only 1 I’ll Ever Use
To say I’m a makeup minimalist is an understatement. Most people don’t believe me when I tell them I only own two eye shadows. One sparkly and one matte. I ‘m all about finding my favorite products and sticking to them. Although I’ve experimented with glosses and lipsticks over the years, I never found one lip product I loved, because they’re almost always too sticky or too colorful for my taste. However, I was recently introduced to Ohii’s latest addition, this Lip Smudge ($16) – it’s a total game-changer for me.
“My lips looked fresh and hydrated with just a touch of color.”
The brand is a new in-house line from Urban Outfitters that’s filled with tons of cruelty-free makeup and skincare finds. I was drawn to the lip smudge immediately because its hint of sheer color sounds like exactly what I’ve been looking for. The soft velvety texture easily glides onto my lips and adds just the right amount of pink and red shades. I tried all five choices and they all have their own unique look, but with one thing in common: it wasn’t overbearing. My lips looked fresh and hydrated with just a touch of color.
Plus, the lip smudges are all vegan and paraben-free, so I can feel good about using it, too. I already own three and have one in every handbag. So what are you waiting for? Keep reading to shop all the shades and find your perfect match for Summer.
