    1. An Aesthetica contouring kit here to take your hand and lead you into the path of chiseled cheekbones.

    The makeup itself is super creamy and buildable, meaning mistakes can be easily fixed or blended out.

    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with my kit. I have not bought a professional contouring kit before and was nervous about buying this one, but the product is easy to put on and it stays on all day. The kit also comes with a how to guide that helped me know where to place the contour and highlight specifically for my face shape. Also super easy to blend in!" —steph

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    2. A pink clay Sand & Sky pore-refining mask to hit the reset button on grease and blemishes (this includes both scarring and all those painful, emerging zits) with an impressive blend of Australian botanicals. ✨ Smoother, brighter skin ✨ is at your fingertips — just apply a face mask two or three times a week.

    This vegan and cruelty-free clay mask also includes an application brush!

    Promising review: "Believe the hype. I do not normally write reviews EVER. I struggle with hormonal cystic acne. I received this product initially as a sample in a beauty bag subscription, within a couple weeks it had my acne cleared and pores noticeably smaller. I looked to purchase and was very hesitant about the price so I ended up not purchasing and tried a different option. Nothing could ever get my complexion back to how it was when using this product so I bit the bullet and made the purchase. I DO NOT regret it. It is my new holy grail product." —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $49.

    3. Alo lounge leggings that are everything a WFH bottom *should* be: high-rise, moisture-wicking, supportive, and I-cant-believe-it's-not-butter soft. Heaven is a place on earth in which your leggings aren't see through (and these are it).

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I can’t say what kind of magic fabric these are made of, but I can say that these are now my absolute favorites! The fabric is like super soft fleece and athletic material leggings had a baby! They feel like a thick, hold-you-in version of those Lularoe butter leggings that people loved a few years back. They make my butt look ammmmaaaaazing, they aren’t see through, they’re slimming, and they DO NOT ROLL DOWN!!!! I’ve truly never encountered a legging like this, but I can assure you this will be my first pair of many." —Nectarbee

    Get them from Nordstrom for $98 (available XXS-L and in two colors).

    4. Lanolips strawberry ointment you can apply before bed and voilà! You'll wake up to a nourished pout that has effectively bid adieu to flakes. That drying matte lipstick formula will basically glide on like butter.

    Promising review: "This stuff is my favorite lip product, bar none. I've been a lip balm/chapstick user for years, and have tried just about every brand. This stuff just WORKS, it leaves my lips moisturized hours later and they don't feel more dry when it wears off." —K

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    6. A Caudalie grape water mist extracted from Bordeaux grapes, so consider this the expensive bottle of ~vino~ for the happy hour that is your nighttime skincare routine. A finishing spritz of this = a post-cleansing toner, a boost of hydration, reduced redness, and soothed rosacea.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have very sensitive skin and have been struggling with breakouts. I’ve needed to go to very gentle products that don’t weigh my skin down or strip it-a really hard thing to actually accomplish. I’m loving this line, and especially this product because it lets me moisturize my face with it over doing it. I live on the coast so there’s a ton of moisture in the air. I don’t need an actually moisturizer most days. Paired with a gentle cleanser and the occasional honey mask, and my skin is finally calming down and looking decent again." —elizabetheva

    Get it from Amazon for $10+.

    7. A pair of Madewell curvy jeans specifically designed for hourglass figures sick and tired of having to wear a belt. Each pair is thoughtfully crafted with a longer rise, slightly more narrow waist, and a hint of extra room at the hip and thighs to highlight your assets — no more gaping waistbands or having to go up a size to get the perfect fit for your legs and booty.

    Madewell, AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "These are the best jeans I’ve ever owned in my 30 years on earth. I have very curvy legs, which is usually a problem because I have a pretty small waist. Well, these jeans feel like they were made for my body. My curves are accentuated in the best way and I've already bought two pairs. I’m obsessed." —Nrmlgurl

    Get them from Madewell for $39.99+ (available in sizes 23-37, petite, regular, and tall lengths, and nine colors/styles).

    To learn more, check out "I Am Convinced That Madewell Curvy Jeans Are The Best Jeans On Planet Earth".

    Nidolo

    Promising review: "Love these! They came exactly as expected. They'll take a little while to break (as real leather does) and this is what I was looking for. Something sturdy to last a long time. I've already worn it to a wide variety of events, from a cocktail party with a silk dress to just out and about in jeans." —Maggie

    Get them from Nisolo for $230 (available in sizes 5-11 and in three colors).

    9. A faux leather bucket bag that you'll be able to cart from work to drinks and everything in between. Is the below a fancy designer brand? No! But the quality and style are so top-notch that they'll simply assume it is.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve had this purse for a couple months now and it has held up really well! I’ve gotten tons of compliments, and I really enjoy all the pockets and storage. You can’t go wrong for the price, and it really hasn’t shown any wear or tear whatsoever." —Whitney V.

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in ten colors and two sizes).

    10. Midi hoops crafted with gold vermeil (sterling silver layered with18-karat gold) that comes with a two-year warranty. Folks, say hello to the *only* accessory you'll want on your earlobes ever again.

    FYI, I have been wearing these earrings for the past year. Showering with them. Sleeping with them. Eating with them. The works! They have not tarnished one bit and look like I just got 'em yesterday.

    Get it from Mejuri for $50 (estimated retail for $147).

    11. A Korres probiotic mask here to tackle redness with a vengeance. Quality ingredients like Greek yogurt, lactic acid, and a microbiome re-balancing technology help nourish your skin's natural protective layer (the kind ruined by stress and greasy food) and improve overall texture.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is by far one of the best face masks I’ve ever used. I struggle with minor rosacea, dry skin, acne, large pores, etc. THIS MASK...it cools my rosacea, soothes dry skin and acne, and blurs my pores. I only use it twice a week, but you can definitely tell a difference immediately after." —suzymay

    Get it from Sephora for $49

    12. A pocket blazer so practical, you'll wonder how you ever existed without it. Throw this on over a pajama tee pre-Zoom call and your colleagues will genuinely believe you tried this morning. Snooze? Never heard of it!

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "You can feel the quality as soon as you put this on! Great fit! I'll be wearing this blazer often!" —Nordstrom reviewer

    Get it from Nordstrom for $69.90 (originally $139, available in sizes XS-4X and in up to five colors).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These shoes are the best shoes I've ever had and I'm a shoe fanatic! When I say I've worn them all day and it feels like I'm walking on clouds, they do! No more walking with my toes crunched up or feeling constricted because the shoe has no flexibility in the toe area (which makes my toes sore). These shoes are flexible and breathable. This right here is honestly a game changer for the comfort of my feet! They don't hurt, plus they look great." —Lauren Clark

    Get them from Amazon for $24.91+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 17 colors).

    14. A denim jumpsuit for anyone who despises having to choose both a top and bottom *and* doesn't like dresses. Presenting the perfect, versatile one-and-done solution that can be fancied up with heels or paired with white sneakers.

    Good American

    Get it from Good American for $155 (available in sizes 0-8 and six colors).

    15. An Oribe texturizing spray considered a holy grail amongst the ~thin hair~ community. It's all very simple: Spray this on dry hair for an immediate root lift — and buildable, nongreasy volume will be delivered with just a few spritzes.

    Elena Garcia / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I've tried way too many texture/salt/powder sprays to achieve the tousled look on my fine pixie cut hair and they just did not work. Other brands either left me with dried out, gummy, sticky hair or did absolutely nothing, zero, nada! So in the throes of total desperation I paid the outrageous price for this can. I really didn't think it was worth all the hype until I used it. Let me just say, it is worth the price. This gives a great tousled look yet leaves your hair feeling like there is nothing there! Not sticky, gummy, or drying but soft, full of texture, movement, body, and IT DOES'T TAKE A LOT TO ACHIEVE THIS [thanks to the Oribe gods for that]." —Donna OBrien

    Get it from Amazon for $23.

    16. High-waisted leggings, aka the new bread and butter of your WFH wardrobe. These splurge-worthy bottoms are constructed with a slip-free waistband that actually stays in place, plus they're moisture-wicking to boot. Perfection? It exists.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "The holy grail of leggings. They are stretchy, completely opaque, have a single leg seam so they are perfect for workout OR with tunics, and have the perfect amount of compression. My oldest pairs of leggings finally gave out after three years of 5 day a week rotation between four pairs. I bought these as a replacement, and they are even better. I'm VERY pear-shaped and the band sits at my proper waist, so they don't fold or creep down throughout the day." —fifithehuntress

    Get it from Nordstrom for $59 (available in sizes 1X-3X).

    17. A beautifully-constructed Daniel Wellington watch with the uncanny ability to turn a wrinkled white tee and ripped denim ensemble into one worthy of a post on the 'gram. This is the kind of splurge-worthy accessory that would be passed down through family members for generations to come.

    This watch is water-resistant, designed with a leather strap, and is guaranteed to get you a minimum of 9,000 compliments (per day).

    Get it from Amazon for $169 (available in two sizes).

    18. The Balm water-resistant mascara with a clump-free, lengthening formula here to upgrade your lash game. One coat gives you the whole "your lashes but better" look, but two coats? Everyone will just assume you're wearing falsies. It's that good.

    instagram.com / Via @thebalm, amazon.com

    Pro tip: Grab the travel-sized bottle. Mascara needs to be replaced about every three months before it expires, which means this mini mascara will give you *just* the right amount of uses.

    Promising review: "This is my holy grail mascara. Every time I think 'is there a better option out there?' and try another brand, I immediately regret it. This mascara lengthens, adds volume, and it does it all with minimal clumping. I’ve been using for this years and the formula has never flaked once. Super easy to remove, even though you’ll probably never want to." –Roshelle

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    19. Tortoise with polished gold prescription glasses that are truly fantastic for daily wear. This timeless design won't clash with any 'fit in your closet: in fact, it'll just make you feel more polished. These rank at a 20/20 for practicality and style.

    Get it from Warby Parker for $195 (prescription included).

    J. Crew

    Get it from J. Crew for $89.99 (originally $148, available in sizes 00-16 and in two colors).

    21. A bareMinerals tinted moisturizer that requires the max amount of effort you're willing to put into your beauty routine, which is exactly zero. Nix shadows and unevenness by way of this light, creamy formula that slathers on like a moisturizer and provides coverage comparable to that of a lightweight foundation.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is my favorite tinted moisturizer/bb cream! It is light coverage, but enough to even out my skin tone and it works well with my dry skin. It is very difficult for me to find foundation that doesn’t dry out my skin, but this one does not. It goes on easy and wears well throughout the day." —Rissachu

    Get it from Sephora for $33 (available in 20 shades).

    22. A John Frieda hot air brush, because an average straightener usually takes ALL the volume out of your roots (cc: pin-straight styles reminiscent of Jersey Shore days). This easy-to-use tool will give you a salon-quality blowout that is shockingly easy to achieve.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    This hot brush is designed to look exactly like a lightweight round brush, except this one is fancy and emits even heat! It's also designed with ionic technology to increase shine and prevent frizz.

    Promising review: "I am no professional hair stylist, nor do I have time to do my hair everyday (I'm a mommy of two) but I must say that this brush makes getting ready so much easier. It's fairly simple to use. I like my hair to have a lot of volume (I have thin hair) and my layers to show (please excuse my dead ends), so that look is easy to achieve with this tool. This adds lot of volume and adds a nice wave to the end of your hair. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a nice, easy blowout!" —C.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    23. A relaxed-fit denim jacket made from the touch, the feel, the fabric of our lives — 100% cotton. If you take a page from the JoBros book and travel to the Year 3000, you'll see that people are still sporting this classic.

    Promising review: "I got the light blue wash, and this jacket is everything I hoped for. It's heavy enough to keep me warm, I can comfortably wear layers underneath it, and it has a vintage feel to it." —Sandra Gibbons

    Get it from Everlane for $88 (traditional retail for $185, available in sizes XXS-XL and in six colors).

    24. A Marc Jacobs shoulder bag best characterized by the following emoji: 😍. This leather accessory is the epitome of a chic wardrobe essential — it makes toting around your phone and wallet feel like the ultimate luxury, plus has a timeless design that won't go out of style.

    Promising review: "The quality of the leather is amazing, as well as the design. It’s the perfect mini bag! So cute whether it’s worn on the shoulder or as cross-body. You can’t go wrong with this one." —Vivalajan

    Get it from Nordstrom for $395.

    25. A Celeb Luxury color depositing shampoo for anyone who would like to turn their ~Pinterest pastel~ dreams into reality (no expensive or time-consuming trips to the salon required). This actively hits the refresh button on color-treated hair that fades after just one wash, sparing you the heartbreak of feeling like you just wasted a ton of money for no reason. You just dyed it light blue! It shouldn't be bleach blond after 1.5 days!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This shampoo works best on bleached or naturally blond hair, and can be used just like a regular shampoo — lather on a generous amount, give your mane a good scrubbing, rinse thoroughly, and that's it! The color will have a more faded effect after the first use, but will be significantly more vibrant after the second wash.

    Psst, this formula is also vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and formaldehyde-free!

    Promising review: "This shampoo is a serious game changer. I have been bleaching and dying my hair pink on and off for years, and it has always faded disappointingly fast. I ended up getting into a routine where I would dye my hair magenta just so it would fade to the pastel pink I wanted — but not anymore! This shampoo allows me to dye my hair a pastel pink and then reapply the color with every shampoo. It comes out bright and beautiful. I used to head to the salon every six to eight weeks, but I can now stretch it out to 12. Bonus: the shampoo lathers, smells great, and is vegan!" —Mary Colleen

    Get it from Amazon for $35 (available in 12 colors).

    26. A button cuff turtleneck sweater perfect for layering under blazers and cardigans (hello fall weather, oh how I've missed you), but it can just as easily be worn on its lonesome.

    27. Veja leather sneakers because it's about time you replace the dirty white kicks you've been sporting since 2011. You've scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, but they are permanently gross now. They've had a long life. Bid them adieu and welcome these sustainable-crafter shoes into your life, instead.

    Moda Operandi

    Get it from Moda Operandi for $150 (available in sizes 36-41).

    28. A Goddess full coverage bra that is so comfortable, about 2,000 purchasers felt compelled to write a 🌟 glowing 🌟 review. This perfect basic's got stretchy straps, paneled sides for ultimate support, *and* is available in a ton of vibrant colors.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Been wearing this bra pretty much daily for the past nine months. Still looks brand new, provides support and does not hurt me to wear. Will not buy from anyone else but Goddess, plus they are decently priced for me wearing a size 38I." —Reanna

    Get it from Amazon for $23.29+ (available in band sizes 34-46, cup sizes DDD-K, and in 14 colors).

    Promising review: "These shoes are so comfortable that it literally feels like I'm walking on air. The support is there! When I'm running, my toes have room to spread out and even when I'm just walking, it feels so cushioned. My knee usually bothers me when I'm running on pavement but after I switched to these shoes, my knee no longer hurts from the run. I've been getting Brooks for a few years now and have loved every pair." —Charli Powers

    Get them from Amazon for $98.25+ (available in sizes 5-12, 27 colors, and narrow, regular, and wide widths).

    32. A Drybar blow-dryer here to cut drying time by up to 20%, which is something worthy of applause. Plus, ionic technology seals in shine and prevents frizz, a nine-foot chord makes this a dream for bathrooms with limited outlets, and the dryer itself is lightweight!

    Sephora

    Promising review: "An absolute dream for someone with thick, hard to dry hair. I have thick long hair and I took a chance on this dryer because all the cheap drugstore brands had me trying to dry my hair for like, 45 minutes. This dream dryer did the job in about seven mins. I can only imagine how it works for those with shorter or fine hair. Best money I ever spent. Lightweight too. Easy to hold. Worth it!" —orlandogal17

    Get it from Sephora for $199.

    33. A Briogeo micro-exfoliating shampoo to replace product build-up and dry flakes with a moisturized, soothed scalp.

    This uses an impressive blend of peppermint, spearmint, and tea tree oil complex as well as charcoal, coconut oil, and panthenol. Plus, it's vegan, cruelty-free, dye-free, and silicone-free so DING DING DING I think we have a winner. Just use this as you would a regular shampoo!

    Promising review: "I can't say enough about this product! I am someone who has a chronically oily scalp and had to wash my hair everyday. I tried so many different products to try and stop the cycle, and this is the first thing that has actually worked. My hair and scalp feel moisturized without looking greasy at all for the two to three days between washes, which is huge for me. I have been able to use is about every two to three weeks to revive my scalp and it smells great, too." —morrillk2

    Get it from Sephora for $42+.

    Promising review: "I have extremely combination, sensitive skin that has reactions to just about everything — I have adult acne, dry patches from eczema, and an extremely oily forehead. So finding products that work for all these issues without adding others is hard. After trying this out, I think I found my holy grail!! My skin has NEVER looked this clear and fresh in my entire life (I’m 30). I’ve used this it as a mask and spot treatment several times and it has yet to disappoint. I’m in love!" —AmandaBrookeLem

    Get it from Sephora for $26

    Promising review: "Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, I find that good rain boots are a necessity. When fashion and quality are a must, look no further than a pair (or two) of Hunters. Normally I would've bought black, but it seems like everyone is doing those right now and I wanted a bit of a pop to my rainy day wardrobe. The gloss red is gorgeous and cleans easily. I get compliments on these on a regular basis when the weather necessitates wearing them." —Laina Saas

    Get them from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in sizes 5-13 and in 29 colors).

    Promising review: "This is the first bra that I don’t dread putting on in the morning and don’t take off the minute I get home from work! It is incredibly comfortable and supportive. I really like the minimizer aspect of this bra! I’ve already ordered another one." —Susan F.

    Get it from ThirdLove for $68 (available in band sizes 30-44, cup sizes A-I and half sizes, and three colors).

    42. A beautyblender sponge to condense your many brushes into just one product. This squishy BB can be used for everything from concealer to setting powder when damp, all while providing a natural finish that is (*IMPORTANT*) not blotchy. It truly blends everything to perfection so that you don't have spots of cake-y, oompa loompa orange scatted across your cheekbones.

    The limited-edition sponge featured above actually changes color when it comes in contact with water.

    Promising review: "This product is incredible. I had been avoiding spending this much money on a sponge for a long time and finally caved to see what all the hype was about. It was 100% worth it and I cannot go back. It is very lightweight, does not absorb too much product, and is the perfect shape. I would absolutely recommend trying this product if you are on the fence about it." —jluch

    Get it from Sephora for $20.

    43. Hoka One One sneakers lauded by reviewers for their supreme comfort, support, and stability. These lace-ups are a solid choice when it comes to everything from running laps to running errands — seriously, the world is your oyster with these shoes.

    Promising review: "I recently developed Plantar fasciitis and needed a new running shoe fast, Hoka was recommended to my by a PT friend and boy am I glad she did. I can work out more comfortably and if you have to wear running shoes all day to walk around in these are the ones!" —TSI

For a skincare routine that feels eerily similar to a facial, you'll want to try out this splurge-worthy blend ASAP.

    Promising review: "I got introduced to this balm at a facial and liked it so much that I ordered it to have at home. I use it as my morning cleanse and first cleanse at night. I wipe it off with a warm washcloth and then do the rest of my skin care. I have really dry skin especially in a Minnesota winter, and this is moisturizing, plumping, and doesn't clog my pores. Highly recommend!" —Verified Purchaser

    Get it from Dermstore for $19.
