We’ve been fans of 2-in-1 products ever since cellphones first started including cameras (a key technological development we blame for our Instagram addiction). Call it our inner lazy girl, but there’s something incredibly appealing about any product that saves us time andreduces clutter. We apply the same mindset toward our beauty routine — why use two or three products when you could use just one to accomplish the same effect? Enter the new generation of beauty product hybrids. These two-in-1 products have magical powers that allow them to brighten and cover, moisturize and tint, condition and lengthen … the list goes on. Below, five of our favorite beauty hybrids you should try immediately. 

hybrid beauty products
Moisturizer + Primer: L’Oréal Revitalift Moisture Blur  Moisturize and prime in one easy step: this hybrid product promises to give the airbrushed effect of a skin primer while hydrating your skin with a dose of anti-aging moisturizers.  

Luminizer + CC Cream:
Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC Cream Fake a good night’s sleep with this miracle skin worker. With a triple threat of ingredients like anti-aging antioxidants, brightening “liquid mirror technology” and SPF 35, this hybrid CC cream has all of your skin concerns covered (literally).  

Lip Balm + Tinted Lip Gloss:
Lancôme Lip Lover Get the moisturizing benefits of a balm with the color payoff and shine of a tinted gloss. When it comes to hydration vs. pigment, who says you have to choose?  

Mascara Primer + Eyelash Conditioner:
Lancôme Cils Booster XL  Your favorite mascara can give you a gorgeous fluttery fringe, but it can also leave your natural lashes feeling brittle and dry. Enter this conditioning mascara base — the micro-fibers will maximize the results of your everyday mascara, while the Vitamin E will hydrate and condition your lashes. 

Eye Primer + Under-Eye Treatment:
Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer Filled with good-for-your-eyes ingredients like caffeine and peptides, this brightening primer will decrease the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles and keep your under eye concealer from slipping off.
