    29 Expensive-Looking Products That’ll Trick People Into Thinking You’re Rich

    Fake it 'til you make it.

    1. A pack of gold under-eye patches that are packed with rose oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to soothe and moisturize skin. They have a cooling effect, so they may help wake you up on an early morning (or after a hangover).

    2. A roll of water-resistant marble contact paper that'll make anything you apply it to look more expensive than it actually is. You can use it on your countertop, laptop, furniture, and pretty much anything else.

    3. A bottle of truffle-infused hot sauce that's a little bit fancier than Tabasco or Cholula (not knocking those, they're amazing). It's the perfect blend of heat, sweetness, and decadence, making it a triple threat condiment.

    4. A vintage-inspired makeup brush holder that uses pearls to hold your beauty tools in place (much fancier than foam filling, if you ask me). You can also use it to stash your highlighters and pens, if your desk essentials need organizing.

    5. A stylish keychain bangle that you can wear as a bracelet, so that your keys never go missing in the bottom of your bag again. The keyring has an easy-to-detach clasp, so you can remove the bangle while you drive.

    6. A set of diamond-shaped tumblers that balance on an angle, making them stand out from the rest of your boring glassware. Sure, they're made for whiskey, but nobody's stopping you from drinking your OJ out of them, too.

    7. A set of gold double-glide shower hooks that look way chicer than those plastic ones you picked up from the dollar store. They'll hang your shower curtain and liner on different prongs, making them easy to remove or switch out.

    8. A crystal-embossed jewelry tray that's big enough to hold all your baubles and go-to makeup products. It has a mirrored base, so you can use it to do your makeup when your roommate has claimed the bathroom and you're running late.

    9. A pair of metallic wine stoppers with vacuum seals, in case you don't finish every last drop in the bottle. These can keep your wine fresh for up to ten days, so you can take your sweet time polishing it off and won't have to keep buying more.

    10. A set of satin pillow cases that'll make you feel like you're staying at a five-star hotel when you crawl into bed at night. They're also cooler to sleep on than regular cotton cases, making them great for the summer months.

    11. A pack of crystal knobs that you can use to replace the boring ones that came on your dresser and nightstand. They're cut like diamonds, so they'll shine and reflect colours when the light hits them just right — you may even see a double rainbow in your own home!

    12. A set of colourful double-ended nail art tools that have brushes on one end and dotting tools on the other to help you achieve pro-level nail art. Reviewers say they're great for beginners and that they're awesome for experimenting with the different design styles.

    13. And a set of fancy crystal nail files that cause less breakage than ceramic and metal alternatives, and will leave your nails feeling smoother than ever. They come with plastic sheaths, so you won't accidentally poke yourself if you leave them floating around in your bag.

    14. A bottle of itty bitty edible stars that'll make your sweet treats look like they were delivered from a high-end bakery. Now even your weakest attempts at making dessert will end in greatness (at least from a visual standpoint).

    15. A stackable baguette-cut crystal ring that looks like it costs a fortune, but doesn't. It's plated with 18k rose gold and has a protective coating to save it from getting banged up.

    16. A set of pearl hair clips that can be added to tousled locks, messy buns, and everything in between. They'll make you look like you put waaaay more effort in your look than you really did on your laziest days (a true blessing).

    17. A set of oval foundation brushes that'll look great on your vanity and make you feel like a seasoned beauty guru every time you apply your makeup. Reviewers say they're silky soft and that the bristles don't absorb product, so you won't waste your pricey holy grail goodies.

    18. A rose quartz roller that's more than just a decoration for your countertop (though it is pretty stunning). It'll cool and de-puff your face, and help you work product into your pores without irritating your skin.

    19. A cozy faux sheepskin rug that'll instantly make any room in your home more stylish. Reviewers say it's super soft and love that it doesn't shed or have a weird chemical-y smell.

    20. A set of candle accessories that comes wth a snuffer, dripper, and trimmer. Using these will lengthen the lives of your favourite candles and look pretty snazzy displayed in your living room, too.

    21. A set of stick-on vanity lights that'll brighten up your makeup station, so you're never stuck trying to do winged liner in the dark. They'll also make your mirror look like it belongs in an A-lister's dressing room, so you'll feel like a star every time you get glam.

    22. This Tiffany's-inspired bangle that looks cute both stacked and solo. Reviewers say it's durable and doesn't scratch or fade over time, like most costume jewelry does.

    23. A copy of Floral Libations, a book on how to make fancy, flowery beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). Once you've mastered a few, you'll be skilled enough to craft your own bespoke botanical cocktails.

    24. A trio of tiny sunglasses that look like they belong on the face of a Hadid sister. Summer 2020 is all about itty bitty eyewear, so jump on the bandwagon, people.

    25. A wine decanter so nobody will know whether you're serving $9 boxed wine or a $50 bottle. Putting your wine in a decanter also oxygenates your wine, enhancing its purity, aroma, and taste, so it may actually taste better, too.

    26. A marble pastry board that can be used to prep heavenly, carb-filled wonders that Anna Olson would be proud of. Plus, it can totally double as a cheese board for your dinner parties.

    27. A mini crystal chandelier that looks like it belongs in a mansion, but will look right at home in your apartment. The crystals are made of acrylic instead of glass, so they won't shatter if they come loose.

    28. A handheld milk frother to make all your espresso-based beverages taste like they've been crafted by a seasoned barista. Flat milk? Leave that for the peasants.

    29. And finally, this super-pigmented moisturizing lipstick that looks and performs like a luxury product. Reviewers love how creamy it is and say the colour lasts after hours of wear.
