Posted on

3. Impulse Cosmetics Mattifying Lip Powder

When you get bored of your satin and shimmery lipsticks, you can kick them up a notch with this powder that will make all of your matte dreams come true. Get it for $2.99 on Etsy.

4. Maybelline Electro Baby Lips

Bright green and orange lip color looks totally terrifying in the tube but goes on so sheer and flattering; some kind of color witchcraft has to be in play here, because these colors work with your natural coloring to make your lips look like the best version of themselves. Plus, they smell rad. Get it here for $2.99.

5. Glama-zoid! Custom Eyeshadow from Salty Cosmetics

Sometimes it's hard to find the perfect eyeshadow shade for your skin tone. Here's where Glama-zoid! comes in. The iridescent powder reflects different hues according to skin tone — so if you're lighter, you'll have a pinker color, while darker skin will bring out purples. Get it here for $4.50.

6. Chanel Gommage Microperle Éclat Exfoliating Gel

Rub this precious gel all over your body and watch all of your dead skin collect into many clumps. Sounds gross, but hey, you'll have a new layer of baby-soft, radiant skin afterward. Get it here for $45.


7. Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy

Since beauty is now based on the ABCs, why not jump on the CC cream lipstick wagon? Armani's newest lipstick gives pure and brilliant color, while benefiting delicate lips — even more of a reason to wear a red lip. It will cost you $34 here.

8. Stila One Step Correct

Prime, moisturize, and brighten your face at the same damn time. The One Step Correct uses three formulas to create one serum that will transform the way you look at beauty and skin care. Check it out here for $36.


11. Perlier Limone Crackling Ice Body Water

This lotion crackles and fizzes on your skin when you rub it in. It is the POP ROCKS OF MOISTURIZERS and feels incredibly refreshing. Available for $24.50 from HSN.


17. Manic Panic's Virgin Snow White Toner/Mixer

After bleaching hair, apply this "lavender" dye to transform your color from dull yellow to a striking shade of peroxide blonde. And since it's semi-permanent and all natural, it won't further damage your hair. Get it for $9.99 from Sally's Beauty Supply.


25. Hourglass Liquid Lipstick

This miracle goes on incredibly smooth (although try applying with your finger or in light layers to minimize glopping) and lasts for basically the rest of your life; I'm wearing it now, and so far today I've drank coffee, eaten oatmeal, and gnawed on a Rice Krispie Treat with no evident fading. Get it here for $28.


28. Flower Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara

"It's all about the brush — this product's high-tech wand is a game-changer. With a trio of settings (lengthening, volumizing and curling) that cater to every lash need, it's like getting three different mascaras for the price of one." Get it here for $7.98.
