One of the major perks of being famous is that you have access to the best of the best. This applies to everything from designer clothes to personal shoppers to, yes, beauty products. So you’d better believe that when a celebrity puts his or her stamp of approval on a skincare treatment or makeup item — without being paid to shill for it, of course — it’s got to be good.

In the interest of taking what I’ve learned from speaking with dozens of different stars for Racked’s Where I Shop series and passing it on to you, I’ve compiled eight celeb-adored beauty essentials below — all of which are marked down (or come with fabulous freebies) courtesy of Black Friday weekend. The list includes two stellar makeup products Riverdale’s leading ladies love to the face mask Samira Wiley can’t live without. Scroll down to shop them all.
