12 editors pick the one beauty product they’d take on a desert island

If you ever find yourself in a room full of fashion and beauty editors, ask them each which beauty product they’d take on a desert island, and then sit back and watch panic ensue. Our editors recently answered the seriously difficult question, and to make it even harder, no one was allowed to pick sunscreen (because otherwise everyone would have, of course).

From favourite mascaras to must-have lip balms, our editors weighed in on the products that they buy over and over again and could never part with—island or not.
