If you're reading this, you're probably well aware of the fact that Korean beauty, once considered a trend, is here to stay in the U.S. market. You're probably also aware that K-beauty products tend to be at the forefront of innovation, whether they're skin care- or makeup-oriented. And with so many great products launching every day, it can be difficult to sort out the best ones.
That's why when habitual K-beauty customers, Korean locals and industry experts all agree on their favorites, you can bet we're going to listen.

The results are representative of the biggest, most innovative trends happening in the industry right now: cushion compacts, pimple patches, sunscreen that's actually pleasant to wear and blackhead-busters. Click through the gallery below to see — and shop — every winner.
