Whether you’re a YouTube star making endless makeup tutorials or one the ones watching from the comfort of your bed (all fingers point to us), something that connects us all is our undying love of makeup and willingness to try any new products that hit the market. Unfortunately, though, buying and trying new makeup goodies can get a little pricey. That’s why we decided to stalk the channels of some of our favorite male beauty vloggers, who are currently killing it in the beauty space, to help us stay informed about what products are actually worth buying, learn how we should be applying them for the best results and what the final look should resemble (even though it always feels like a little bit of a struggle to make our look as perfect as a professional YouTuber). Naturally, we watched way more video tutorials than we originally intended to find out what cult-fave beauty products male beauty vloggers are obsessed with. See all six product suggestions, ahead.

In a current favorites (and most hated) makeup review, Thomas Halbert gushes about how much he loves Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover. “This is the best makeup removing thing in the world. It just melts down all of my makeup and all of the glitter I put on. I can’t say enough good things about it — it’s literally legendary.”

In a video we can all appreciate — “The Top 10 Makeup Products at the Drugstore” — Manny MUA walks us through all the affordable products he’s in love with, including Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer. “This concealer is a nice medium coverage, but you can build it up to be more full coverage. It blends out so nicely and doesn’t crazy-crease on me.”
