    1. An e.l.f. concealer that lasts an absurdly long time so you won't have to worry about its potent power waning at the end of a long day.

    e.l.f. 16-hour camo concealer in three shades

    2. A bottle of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, so you can easily swipe away even the toughest of formulas.

    Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water removes makeup, even waterproof mascara

    3. A Soap & Glory body polish because, unlike a lot of scrubs that feel way too harsh, this one actually feels like it's soothing your skin while it exfoliates. After just one use, my keratosis pilaris was basically gone. Plus, it smells absolutely divine.

    Soap & Glory Flake Away shea butter, sugar, and apricot seed spa body polish

    4. A Revlon eyeliner, so your wings look sharp every time you put them on. It's waterproof, long-lasting, and comes in a twistable applicator so you never need to fuss with a sharpener again.

    5. A brightening eye gel because you're sick of people telling you how tired you look. You only need to use a drop per application, so this little tube will last for quite a long time.

    Versed Vacation Eyes brightening eye gel with vitamin C and ginseing root extract

    6. A Garnier Fructis in-shower styler that'll cut drying time in half.

    Garnier Fructis Sleek Shot in-shower styler cuts sleeking time in half when you mix with shampoo

    7. A bar of Dr. Bronner's soap because you get way more bang for your buck than you do when you use the stuff that comes in a bottle. This one smells so good, you'll want to hide it in your drawers, so that your clothing smells as beautifully as your skin.

    8. A 10-in-1 hair primer, so you don't have to worry about heat damage when you're flat-ironing your hair for the third time this week. It also detangles, adds shine, and reduces frizz so that styling is a breeze.

    Eva NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 primer with argan oil & sunflower seed oil for all hair types

    9. A six-pack of Biore charcoal pore strips because the only good thing about blackheads is how satisfying it is when you pull them out of your face.

    10. Maybelline Great Lash mascara which has been a drugstore classic for longer than I've been wearing makeup.

    11. A pair of false eyelashes so that when you bat your eyes, you'll get maximum impact. When you take them off at the end of the day, just peel away the adhesive and wipe them off with your makeup remover.

    Ardell Professional fauxmink wispies and demi wispies

    12. A Conair hair dryer that will blow you away (I had to, sorry). I tested this a while back and was so shocked to find that it just about outperformed my own professional (read: expensive) hairdryer.

    13. A 50-pack of blotting sheets, so you can dab away sweat without ruining your makeup.

    14. A 58-palette travel kit that has everything you need to create a whole look, from the bronzer and blush to the eyeshadow and lip creams. You can basically replace most (if not all) of your makeup collection for $40!

    15. A Head & Shoulders dandruff shampoo because you're tired of looking like you've spent the day in snowy weather. It's paraben-free and uses nourishing ingredients such as almond oil, lemon extract, and peppermint.

    16. A water-based bronzer, so you don't end up looking like you just smeared Cheetos dust under your cheekbones. Because of its glue-stick-like shape, it's easy to control exactly where you want this bronzer to go. The water base blends easily to create a natural glow.

    17. A Sally Hansen nail polish because watching paint dry is the most boring, frustrating thing!!! I don't know about you, but I always end up needing to pee right after I finish my nails which... never works out well. This polish dries in about 60 seconds which is all I need to know before I click "add to cart."

    18. A 24-pack of Mighty Patches to help you resist the temptation to pop your zits. They use a natural, medical-grade gel to absorb the gunk out of zits and are even thinner than the original Mighty Patch so you can use them all day without drawing any unwanted attention.

    19. A face sunscreen because you've gotta protect your skin from harsh rays, even if you're just popping out for a quick walk.

    26. An e.l.f. putty primer because the key to a masterpiece is a smooth, even canvas. This primer not only smooths over pores and grips your makeup for a long-lasting lewk but it also hydrates!

    27. A Colgate whitening toothpaste, so your smile gleams through your bright red lipstick.
