Here at TZR headquarters, we can wax poetic for days on end about the merits of our beloved beauty products. Though if you ask us, a picture is worth a thousand words, and as evidenced by the rapid rise of the #shelfie, we are far from alone. These pretty little vignettes have been flooding Instagram feeds for some time, and we’re anything if not grateful for the eye-candy packed diversion.
Indulge your voyeuristic side by taking a virtual gander through our meticulously styled arsenal, then get in on the action and show us your beauty #shelfie on Instagram or Twitter using #zoereporter and we’ll be sure to share our favorites.
"I'm pretty classic when it comes to nail polish colors. In the winter, I'm all about rich, dark, brooding jewel tones and classic reds. In the summer, I break out the pinks, golds and corals. Tom Ford's Coral Beach is everything; coral can sometimes be a little bit cheesy but this shade is soft and lovely and Givenchy's Irresistible is great when you want that super-summery pop of color that makes your skin look gorgeous and glow-y."

"My skin can get quite oily, so a common theme in the products I use is moisture without greasiness. I love the new oil eliminating collection from Kiehl's, it really works and smells amazing. Another product that no man should go without is a pre-shave oil, I love the one from Art of Shaving...using the smallest amount during your shaving routine can make the biggest difference."

"The Orlando Pita dry conditioner is lightweight and perfectly refreshes my hair. For a long day or night out, I trust Smashbox cosmetics mostly because they stay put, without feeling cakey. I love the eye shadow trios!"
Lindsay Pogemiller, Styling Assistant
Cleanse & Refresh
"I like to mix up my hair and skincare regimen as often as I can. Currently, I'm loving Korre's overnight facial and Tarte's eye makeup removing wipes - they smell great and remove waterproof makeup with ease."
Jennifer Ash, Editorial Assistant
"I'm blessed with a less-than-taut under-eye area, which is why I live and die by the freakishly potent Verso eye serum. And for summer, Byredo’s Inflorescence is the most refreshing fragrance – floral yet not too sweet."

His & Her's
"I experiment more with skincare than I do with makeup. My current favorites include Aurelia Probiotic Skincare and Dr. Hauschka's moisturizing mask because my skin in L.A. is permanently dehydrated. The Aqua De Colonia deodorant is my boyfriend's but it smells awesome so I often steal it. I just realized how gross that is."
Nicky Deam (@nixpix306), Editorial Manager
"I love Nars blush in Orgasm. It's the perfect peachy-pink color and has just the right amount of shimmer to give you that perfect summer glow. I'm also obsessed with Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte lipsticks - I carry at least one in my purse at all times and have collected quite a few of them over the years. I love experimenting with shades and textures by mixing different colors on my lips. Right now I'm really loving #15 Corail Intuitive and my new favorite, #17 Rose in Tension."

Clean & Clear
"At the risk of sounding dramatic, Somme Institute has kind of changed my life...not to mention their packaging looks super chic on your shelf. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and their regimen is the only one that's made a visible difference. I'm also addicted to all things Oribe, especially their Gold Lust nourishing oil for my newly-bleached tresses. And I never knew that lipstick could be worth $50 until I tried Tom Ford—his lip sheers are so hydrating that it feels like you're wearing chapstick."

Keep It Simple
"I try to keep my morning and evening routines as simple as possible: wash, moisturize and protect. I'm obsessed with Kai's products lately along with GlamGlow's clearing treatment. SPF is essential for my facial routine, and I can't get enough of Neutrogena's pure and free liquid and Ceravae's morning face moisturizer with SPF 30."

Light As Hair
"The Spirulina hairspray by the brilliant artist, Byron Williams, is one of my favorite products. It helps hair stay in place without weighing it down or leaving it sticky - and it smells amazing."Mandana Dayani (@mandanadayani), Vice President, Rachel Zoe Inc.
The Perfect Shave
"I am obsessed with Harry’s “Truman” mail order razor, it gives me the best shave ever coupled with Aramis Lab Series shaving cream. I also like Anthony all purpose Facial Moisturizer -- loaded with sugarcane, lemon, orange and sugar maple natural extracts, along with vitamins A,C and E -- for an even toned look."
Ron Troxell, West Coast Advertizing Director
Back To Nature
"I love Aesop's products because they are the perfect balance of botanical and dermatological. The cream cleanser is purifying, but not drying and the toner makes my skin look and feel really fresh and clean. I am also in love with Amore Pacific's products, especially their color control cushion compact. It gives me just enough coverage while leaving my skin tone looking natural and a little dewy."
Lauren Blakeley (@laurenkblakeley), Product Development Manager
Life's A Beach
"Oribe Surfcomber Mousse gives me a quick, beachy textured look on those days I don't want to spend a lot of time on my hair and the Alpha Beta Glow Pads give my face natural sun-kissed color. Plus, they come in single packets making them great for summer travel."
