You'll never want to throw anything out.

Posted on

1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit — a collection of six flashy highlighters to make you the center of attention.

Promising review: "This glow kit is like nothing I own! It's so unique and versatile! I just bought it but I'm already so in love. I have fair skin and every shade works for me and looks so beautiful whether it's on my face or my eyes! I love how you can have a subtle glow or really build it up and make it intense! This glow kit is definitely worth it, 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND!" —makeuplover1333

Price: $40

2. Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara for smooth, black mascara in a rainbow tube.

Promising review: "The packaging itself made me want to buy it, but it really is a great mascara! The bristles are short and don't get all clumpy and full of product like a lot of mascaras do. It lengthens, curls, and is very black." —samkeaysxo

Price: $24


4. Too Faced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush for a look that's peachy keen.

This fruity-smelling blush goes from creamy to powdery when you apply it to your face or lips.

Promising review: "I am SO in love with this product. I have nothing like it and have been looking for something that gives a natural look without being a powder. I love how it goes on and looks natural, but can also be built up if you prefer more color. It stays all day and I love the smell and texture." —wintersnowflake

Price: $30 (available in six colors)

5. Drunk Elephant Lippe Balm that all designers will love for its Pantone-esque container.

Promising review: "I love this lip balm, and everything I've tried from Drunk Elephant. It's a chubby little stick with a wide surface that makes application very easy. It's pleasantly oily and nourishing, and doesn't feel thick or sticky. I've noticed my lips are more plump with less lines the more I use it, and it has a slightly sweet taste, but not at all overwhelming." —hollylively

Price: $18

6. Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette for a makeup altar with 24 heavenly hues.

Mimicking the stained glass panes in a church, this palette comes with 12 saint colors and 12 sinner colors, so you can pick how ~good~ you want to look each day.

Promising review: "This palette is unbelievable! I’m so glad I decided to splurge on this! I have used the gold and white glitter shade as a highlight on my cheekbones and have gotten so many compliments asking what highlighter I’m using! I’ve never really been a bold color eyeshadow person but this makes me experiment and has given me great results!" —BrandiKlahr

Price: $62


7. Sol de Janeiro Samba 2-Step Foot Fetish Cream — a beachy kit dedicated to making your feet as silky soft as the sand you'll be burying them into next summer.

Surf's up! It even comes with a little surfboard that smoothes and exfoliates.

Promising review: "I'm on my feet as long as nine hours straight and my heels take a beating. I'm tired for overpaying for pedicures and my feet only feeling good and callous-free for a couple of days. I bought this slightly reluctantly but it's a great product. You use the file on dry feet then the cream after. It's helped and I've saved money on pedicures." —babypooh

Price: $27

8. Fenty Beauty Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick for a shiny, futuristic aesthetic that looks like it was created in space.

Who knew metallic colors could be so creamy and smooth?

Promising review: "Lovely! It's sparkly without the sticky or gritty feeling. It looks great on, and the packaging makes me want to pull it out of my purse. This doesn’t disappoint." —mosstm

Price: $19 (available in four colors)

9. Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Lip Balm — a dino-covered tin filled with hydrating, jelly-like balm with just a hint of color.

Promising review: "I'm so completely in love with this balm. It's super moisturizing and leaves a subtle tint of color on my lips that lasts all day. It feels amazing and smells great too." —CoriLou

Price: $15 (available in three colors)

10. Milk Makeup Holographic Stick for a look that was handed down to you from an alien princess.

Promising review: "I feel like a supernova girl wearing this. It's literally amazing: The holographic effect is REAL and I am LIVING for the lavender color. It is a tad awkward to blend in with/over other makeup, but I just used a small brush to get the product off instead of just rolling it straight onto my face and that seemed to do the trick." —evde

Price: $28 (available in two colors)


11. Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick — a dewy liquid lip color in a beautifully ombre bottle you'll want to take everywhere.

Promising review: "I AM OBSESSED. The texture is amazing — it's so smooth and plumps without being uncomfortable. I want every color." —adamssar16

Price: $21 (available in 12 colors)

12. Tarte Buried Treasure Eyeshadow Palette that will make you feel like the most successful (and beautiful) pirate ever thanks to its ornate design.

Promising review: "I'm loving this palette! The beautiful wavy design is such an improvement over the usual boring blocks or circles. The texture of the shadows blend wonderfully for a classy look without wearing layer, after layer, after layer. Beautiful!" —seahorse02

Price: $36

13. Tarte Tight and Bright Clay Multi-Mask — a total gem of a product encased in an agate-inspired jar.

Twitter: @tartecosmetics

Get two vegan masks in one gorgeous container that tighten pores, hydrates, and brightens.

Promising review: "This mask duo is perfect for all skin types, even sensitive and dry! I'm currently on Accutane and so my skin is SUPER sensitive and dry. I put the purple mask in my t-zone and the gold mask on my cheeks, but you can also put them all over your face. In my opinion, this idea is PURE GENIUS!" —sydneygkinard

Price: $40

14. Pat McGrath Luxetrance Lipstick housed in a golden lips-adorned tube in a uniquely designed box.

Each color has a different patterned box.

Promising review: "These are seriously amazing. Creamy yet matte, not drying, long lasting, zero bleeding with any of the red and deeper shades. They have complex, deep colors." —Sunnysmom

Price: $38 (available in 21 colors)


15. Guerlain Météorites Illuminating Powder Pearls in an ornate tin that feel like the classy Dippin' Dots of the beauty world.

Promising review: "Absolutely amazing and worth every penny! I use these everyday to set my makeup, give me a little glimmer, and make my face smell amazing! They also make your skin look years younger and healthier!" —AlexP26

Price: $62 (available in three finishes)

17. Dr. Jart+ Tarot of Masks — a beautifully illustrated box inspired by Tarot cards so you can target all sorts of skincare troubles.

A problem-free face is the cards with this kit. The set of seven masks includes: water replenishment, micro jet brightening solution, pore minimalist, pore master patch, micro set master patch, ceramidin, and hydration lover rubber mask.

Promising review: "I love the practice and artistry of tarot cards. I love face masks. The combination for a holiday set is extremely cute. I use a face mask everyday as more of a mental 'time for myself' stress release. However, buying nice face masks can get expensive. This set is really cool and seems to be a better deal than picking out individual ones." —SarahShiner

Price: $36

18. Drunk Elephant Volume 2: Come C About Me for a nice starter pack for daytime skincare.

Promising review: "This was a great deal! You get a full size C-Firma and for $8 more, you get a half-size Hydra, Beste Cleanser, and a travel size Umbra. If you want to try out a few Drunk Elephant products, this is the set to try." —Kneee

Price: $88


19. Glamglow Big Wheel of Sexy — an elaborate kit that breaks into a legit ferris wheel.

The fairground favorite comes with little jars of Youthmud, Supermud, Thirstymud, GravityMud, Glowstarter, Volcasmic, Dreamduo, and Plumprageous.

Promising review: "This is an awesome deal if you love Glamglow products. And if there's anything you don't want, you can easily gift it to a loved one. I highly recommend!" —breemargaret

Price: $349

20. Colourpop's Amber Crystal Collection Bundle encased in an iridescent box you won't want to throw away.
