Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer looks, as its name implies, good on EVERYONE. Rihanna knows what she's doing.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is my go-to lip gloss now — it looks beautiful with pretty much any makeup look or with a bare face. It has a lovely frosted finish and it doesn't leave my lips feeling sticky or dried out like a lot of other lip glosses. I've bought Diamond Milk a few times and I'll keep coming back to it." —yasminelzanaty

    Price: $19 (available in six shades)

    2. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment goes on cooling and smooth, is easy to blend in, and will make you look in the mirror five minutes later wondering where any redness went! I use it daily as a moisturizer under my foundation and some reviewers even use it as a CC cream. It's *that* good. And it has SPF 30!

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Like I said up there ^, I use this every single day and to demonstrate just how well it works, I put it on half of my face in the pic on the left. Seriously, the color-cancelling prowess is impressive. Also it took me nearly a year to go through the full-size jar. So if the price has you feeling iffy, you can try out a travel version. Seriously, I'm forever indebted to this stuff.

    Promising review: "I have rosacea on both my cheeks and a bit on chin and also have a couple of acne spots on my chin as well and I’ve tried so many foundations to cover up my cheeks and no matter how full coverage my cheeks will still show through. So I decided to try this and I love it!!!! I use this after primer and moisturizer and then use a foundation (because I fake tan and my face is paler than my body) and my skin looks amazing!!! I’m so impressed! I love makeup but I could never really use a lot of face products because I was embarrassed. Definitely recommend if you have rosacea and want to wear full coverage foundation or even as a BB cream." —elyse1518

    Price: $18+ (available in two sizes)

    3. And Dr. Jart Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Calming Gel Cream is also worth calling out thanks to its equally cooling effect on your skin.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I was so excited to try this. I have rosacea and have had this for over 10 years. Any moisturizer I use burns or leaves me with dry, scaly patches no matter what I do. I have been using this gel cream for almost a month and I am impressed. It goes on light as it is a gel more than cream, and moisturizes extremely well. I have noticed my redness has kept to a minimum, even in this summer weather and with a bit of a sunburn. I use this mornings before makeup and love it." —LenaGreecian23

    Price: $48

    4. Urban Decay Naked3 Palette packs in an array of super pretty blendable eye shadows you can mix and match to create all kinds of glowy looks. (Should out to Buzz for all the compliments it's earned me.)

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This was my first expensive palette that I bought a couple years ago when I first got into makeup, and I can safely say that it's still my favorite. Amazing pigmentation, lasted (with the UD Primer Potion) after I went swimming and rubbed my eyes, stays on all day. This palette has never failed me, and it looks beautiful with every skin tone. If I could only take one palette with me the rest of my life it would be this one. it's worth the money." —rh072196

    Price: $54

    5. Fresh Sugar Lip Balm Sunscreen SPF 15 has 15 (!!!) shades and smooth, buildable color for days when you need some color but are short on time (so most days?). This is an OG for good reason.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have been wearing the Berry color for years. It’s a perfectly blue-toned hue that makes your teeth look super white. This product is so easy to swipe on without a mirror and has actually replaced true lipstick to become my everyday staple, for work and on the weekends. I also dab a bit on my cheeks for some glossy dewiness on top of powder blush. Pro-tip: when you think the tube has run out, dig out the remaining product with something small and put it in an empty travel-sized container. I easily get a few more weeks' worth of lip gloss doing this!" —Batemanbeauty

    Price: $24 (available in 15 shades)

    6. Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil is a holy grail product for many thanks to its rich combo of antioxidants and omega 6 and 9 to target fine lines, dryness, dullness, and other skin issues that can make you look slightly less like the magnificent creature you are.

    Sephora

    Clean at Sephora (meaning it's made without a list of over 50 ingredients, like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and more). Vegan and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "This product is super healing and hydrating. It calms my skin after strong treatments like the Babyfacial and leaves my skin looking really healthy. I am EXTREMELY acne-prone and I this doesn't break me out or leave me with congested pores. I actually think it's pretty healing for my acne inflammation. When I've picked at my skin (it happens to the best of us!!) this is all I want to rub all over my scar/scab. The only downside to me is that when I try to mix it with foundation, it leaves me a little more shiny than i'd like. I'm still new to face oils but am on the hunt for another one for use with makeup." —kellytaylorv

    Price: $72

    7. Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer does a ton of smooth talking to your pores that always seem to catch lil' pools of foundation. *Plus* it feels super lightweight, unlike a lot of primers.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "Ughhhhhhh why did it take this long for me to try this primer, I love it!!!! Goes on smooth smells great but wow!!!! My makeup stays on all day !!!!" —virimer

    Price: $32 (also available in a mini size, value size, and hydrating and pearl formulas)

    8. Urban Decay All Nighter Pollution Protection Makeup Setting Spray keeps your perfectly done-up face looking and feeling that way, while providing a protective barrier against pollution FTW.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "Yesss yessss. I love this spray. Can I please get an amen!!! Hunty I need to buy a mini for my purse !! Makeup is stuck not sliding off this face." —Melaninsupreme

    Price: $34 (also available in original and ultra matte formulas)

    9. Glow Recipe Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer sounds juicy (and you'd be right about that) with a lightweight gel formula that helps boost your ~glow~ (yes) with ingredients like watermelon extract and hyaluronic acid.

    Sephora

    Clean at Sephora (meaning it's made without a list of over 50 ingredients, like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and more). Vegan and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "I have combination/oily skin and this moisturizer really works for me. I’ve struggled with acne in my 20s, and this moisturizer keeps my skin hydrated without irritating or adding to my skin’s issues. Definitely will continue to buy this." —jcar27

    Price: $39 (also available in a mini version for $21)

    10. Sephora Collection Daily Brush Cleaner helps you do the thing you KNOW you should do, clean your brushes (you're dragging across makeup palettes and then all over your face) on the reg.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is perfect for a quick cleanup between deep cleaning. I spray directly on the brush (I’m lazy) then wipe it on a paper towel. This is an essential cleaner that works perfect with wet or dry products. Not too perfumey and keeps my brushes (and me) happy. One bottle goes a long way. Definitely worth it." —0305lovelyone

    Price: $9

    11. Lancôme CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base, aka a mascara primer, helps separate lashes and boosts volume. "Are those lashes fake?" isn't a terrible thing to hear, now is it?!

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I redeemed a sample size of this eyelashes primer and it is now part of my makeup routine. I was always looking for the best mascara that would improve the length of my lashes and this is so far the best product I've found! It gives your lashes great definition and separation. I will definitely purchase full-size as soon as I run out of the sample I have." —margo90

    Price: $26.50 (also available in a mini size for $13)

    12. IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50+, a full-coverage, color-correcting cream with SPF 50 and multiple formula types to get your sunscreen situation handled.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "Actually wasn’t expecting to buy foundation when I walked in the store. They were doing a promotion and I got suckered into buying after a free application. Figured might as well use it and ended up loving it!! Didn’t realize what I was missing. Amazing coverage! A little goes a longggg way. I got this tube around five months ago and it still hasn’t run out and I use it every day. It also did amazing wonders for my dry skin. No issues with extra oil." —shelbyshell17

    Price: $39.50 (available in 12 shades; also in oil-free matte and illuminating formulas)

    13. Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer is a great formula itself (that I use every single day) but the really great part about it (IMO) is that the container design catches stray powder your brush loosens up to use for later for far less waste. Plus the included brush is PERFECT.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is my go-to bronzer! I love the shade and how subtle it looks on my skin. Definitely has buildable coverage as you're able to just buffer out foundation or really contour!" —KT51

    Price: $30 (available in four shades)

    14. Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel easily pumps up the volume and look on your brows because your gorgeous eyes deserve the framing. (This is another personal fave of mine!)

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have naturally thick brows and I just hate drawing them in so this product is perfect for me. Fills in area where I need it and holds everything in place and doesn’t leave that crunchy feeling that eyebrow gel does. Plus, helps me maintain a somewhat clean looking brow if I’ve been too lazy to get them done. Been using it for years, it’s a go to in my everyday look." —nal8

    Price: $24 (available in 10 shades)

    15. KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Eyeliner has a super fine tip to help you get your flick on and keep it put.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "'Tattoo' is definitely the best description for this product. It is definitely waterproof and stays on extremely well. I have never found an eyeliner this easy to use that stays on all day & night. Highly recommend this product!" —JoleneTheresa

    Price: $21 (available in black or brown; also in a waterproof formula)

    16. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream Moisturizer is full of hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and bionymph peptide to support your skin's collagen for an overall plumping look.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have very dry skin, I was always on the lookout for a good hydrating moisturizer. This is by far one of the best moisturizers I've ever tried. WORTH EVERY PENNY!! I put this on every day whether I wear makeup or not. If you have dry skin this product is worth a try." —feyra

    Price: $29+ (available in four sizes)

    17. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder — perhaps you've heard of it? — blends effortlessly to set your makeup for up to 12 hours. 'Nuff said.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "Love love love. Been using this for years. Have tried other setting powders and keep coming back. Has a yellow tint but it seems to help reduce my redness. Gives a nice matte finish for most the day. Will start to have some oil shine through after 8 hours of wear yet makeup still holds for 12-18 hours, even through a workout." —hetzy

    Price: $39 (available in two shades and in a mini size; also available in a "glow" formula)

    18. beautyblender looks unassuming enough (it's just a sponge!) BUT has a cult following for good reason. Its shape and material means you get streak-free application, even if you're not a pro in the makeup department.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I can’t believe what a huge difference this made in applying my liquid foundation. I’ve used different sponge-type blenders in the past without much success, and had been using IT brushes which work pretty well...but this was SO easy and fast! Definitely worth it!" —lipstickmommy

    Price: $20

    19. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Body Builder lets you adjust how much volume you'd like to add to your 'do because the closer to Dolly Parton's height you can get, the better.

    Sephora

    Made without parabens, phthalates, and silicone. Cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "Love this spray! Perfect for the amount of everyday body I like, but love option to amp it up for special occasions. I can brush through my hair the next day very easily with this, too. Not too sticky or stiff at all. As with all Living Proof products, highly recommend." —SarahR832

    Price: $29 (also available in a mini version for $15)

    20. Kerastase Nutritive Blow-Dry Primer for Dry Hair (an exclusive to Sephora) helps nourish and smooth out your strands while preventing breakage from styling.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This has helped my hair so much. I color it and use heat styling daily so it’s difficult for me to keep it from being damaged. This keeps my hair healthy and shiny. It’s my favorite heat protectant." —ErinKent

    Price: $37 (also available in a mini size for $18)

    21. MILK Makeup Holographic Stick in a mini version makes it super easy to look all glowy and radiant on the go, which is what I want for all of us, OK?!

    Sephora

    Clean at Sephora (meaning it's made without a list of over 50 ingredients, like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and more). Vegan, talc-, gluten-, and cruelty-free.

    Promising review (for Supernova): "Applies and blends well and it’s the most gorgeous unicorn sparkle. I love it! I also have the powder highlighter in the same shade!" —Zombiekitty

    Price: $15 (available in three shades)

    22. Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm gently erases the day without tugging or drying out your skin.

    Sephora

    Clean at Sephora (meaning it's made without a list of over 50 ingredients, like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and more). Vegan, gluten-, and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "Best makeup removing balm out there. Not the cheapest, but it's probably the only one that doesn't sting my eyes amongst the five other brands I've tried. The plus is also that it's CLEAN beauty! A cheaper dupe for the loved Then I Met You cleanser, and a (more expensive but better!) dupe for the Zero Cleansing Balm by Banila." —axp0120

    Price: $34 (also available in a mini size for $22 or a value size for $58)

    23. Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Avocado Leave-In Defining Crème keeps your curls in movement and provides soft-to-the-touch definition without the crunch.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have dry, curly hair that frizzes easily in Florida. I got a sample of this in Ipsy and fell in love with it. It defines my curls and does not weigh down my hair! It's a great product!" —NanaCathie

    Price: $20 (also available in a similar gel version)

    24. bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil is the stuff of legend (and comes in many forms), but the OG does major work for medium-to-thick hair thanks to its UV and heat protection, and shine effects.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have very thick coil-y hair, and I was pleasant surprised at how soft and smooth it made my normally insane hair! I had this from a free sample, and I normally use DevaCurl products for my everyday. It also doesn't make my hair feel dirty the next day, which I like! Keep up the good work B&B." —RClar

    Price: $40 (also available in a mini version for $22; check out the primer, shampoo, conditioner, and dry oil finishing spray)

    25. NARS Blush (in Orgasm X, go-to Orgasm, or one of many other colors) goes on smooth and seems to last both on your face and in the compact for ages. There's good reason it's adored!

    Sephora

    Promising review: "There's a reason this is a classic. It's a great universal color (I have pale skin with red undertones), lasts all day, and looks so natural. It's been my go-to blush for years and every time I try a new blush, I always say this just isn't as good as NARS Orgasm. It gives a subtle glow as well without having to use highlighter. I highly recommend and will keep on using. I just wish NARS had a cruelty-free and or vegan option (fingers crossed!)." —Turbee16

    Price: $30 (available in a variety of shades)

    26. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads are a daily treatment packed with lactic and glycolic acids to target uneven texture, spots, and clogged pores. So really, they're your new multitasking BFF.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have very pale, sensitive skin prone to acne and rosacea. This is the only chemical exfoliant I use because it doesn’t irritate my skin. It gets rid of dead skin, makes my skin super smooth, and reduces the size and frequency of acne. It’s also super easy to use as it is already in wipes. The wipes feel really soft on my skin, and they have so much moisture and product on them that you can cut them in half and only use half a pad making them last a lot longer! LOVE THIS PRODUCT IT IS A STAPLE IN MY ROUTINE! Have rebought many times and will keep doing so!" —TheLisaT

    Price: $17+ (available in 28 or 60 pads)

    27. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream contains guaraná (an Amazonian plant with caffeine), coconut oil, and other super nourishing and moisturizing ingredients you'll wanna rub all over your body, not just your bum. Oh, and did I mention the divine smell?

    Sephora

    I LOVE this stuff and always have to stop myself from bathing in it. Made without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.

    Promising review: "I love this product! Smells amazing, leaves your skin feeling extra hydrated, and adds a beautiful shimmer. It seriously smells like a tropical vacation in a jar. Don't really know if it does anything to firm up my skin, but the moisturizing benefits and the smell are enough to make me repurchase again and again." —krismori

    Price: $45 (also available in a mini version for $20)
