Every year, Allure releases their "Best of Beauty" picks — a list full of editor-tested beauty products that stand out among the rest.

The products listed span multiple categories including lips, eyes, hair and more, and each item is judged on its level of effectiveness and innovative nature.

Allure Editor-in-Chief Michelle Lee visited TODAY to showcase some of these can't-miss items. Here are some of the 2019 winners to add to your own beauty bucket list.

1. Nailest Instant Glam Press-On Nails

These handmade glue-on nails can give you the manicure of your dreams in seconds. You can either order them in their standard colors — jade green, magenta, lilac, or a rose gold — or message the retailer to ask about custom colors. All sets are made to order.

2. Living Cleansing Balm from Then I Met You

3. Peace Out Acne Dots

Clear up zits cleanly with these easy acne-healing dots. Just stick the dots — full of helpful ingredients like salicylic acid and Vitamin A — onto any blemish, and the treatment will make it less red, less painful, and less irritating in just a few hours.

4.Vaseline Jelly All Over Body Balm

This 149-year-old body balm has the same cult favorite formula with a no-mess application process. The stick will help bring ample moisture to chapped hands, elbows, heels, lips and any other dry areas of your skin.
