    1. Essence's Lash Princess mascara for instant length so effective, it will make your eyelashes look like they could take flight (while still looking natural enough that they won't be mistaken for falsies).

    2. A super-soft Makeup Eraser that will make you feel like a human whiteboard. It legit just takes the makeup right off your face — even your most waterproof mascaras — with nothing but water and a gentle scrub.

    3. A jar of Aztec healing clay masks for acne that essentially suck the gunk out of your pores (and pre-existing acne) like a vacuum. It doesn't just help with the acne you already have — it helps to prevent acne in the future, making it less of a quick easy fix and more of an actual solution.

    4. Glossier's Cloud Paint blush that you can basically fingerprint right onto your face — it's thick enough for a noticeable glow, but subtle enough to be extremely forgiving in your application, no matter your level of blush expertise.

    5. A dual hair dryer and brush to dry your hair as you style it and give your do an incredible amount of volume and shine.

    6. A set of clear acne-absorbing cover patches that use hydrocolloid, tea tree, and calendula oil to target all those trouble areas that cropped up during your stressful week, suctioning the gunk right out of them while you lay in bed casually ignoring half your texts.

    7. A hair-finishing cream for taking care of those little wisps and flyaways that don't quite make it into your ponytail — a far better solution than shoving a baseball cap over your head and calling it a day.

    8. A Batiste dry shampoo spray that will help absorb excess oil and give your roots so much oomph that you'll shenanigan everyone into thinking your Day 3 hair is actually Day 1, and all you have to do is spray it on your head and work it in with your fingers. It's basically a magic trick.

    9. A makeup brush shampoo specifically designed to get all the gunk of your leftover foundation out in mere minutes, no matter how long you've gone without cleaning them. (No judgment, y'all. The time-space-makeup continuum is a wild one.)

    10. A 16-pack of Korean face masks made with vitamin E and collagen to give your cheeks the kind of post-mask glo up that is just b e g g i n g to be Instagram-storied, and literally all you have to do is put it on your human face.

    11. A set of itty bitty eyebrow razors you can use to take care of those lil' unibrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers, and also work well on whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way.

    12. Glossier's Boy Brow, a combo eyebrow gel and pomade that you can swipe a few times through each brow for instant subtle, natural definition. The brush picks up just enough of the product in the tube each time that it's impossible to mess up.

    13. An smudgeproof eyeliner stamp so you can finally get the perfect cat-eye on the first go without having to ~wing it~ (read: wasting eight cotton balls, half a bottle of eye makeup remover, and all of the minutes you were setting aside to make your morning coffee).

    14. A bottle of Elizavecca Hair Treatment, a repairing mask infused with collagen ingredients and protein extracts that amp up hair damaged by your beauty tool arsenal or the sun — all you gotta do is apply it on wet hair after a shampoo, wait five minutes, and rinse it out. Presto! Hair that would make Timothée Chalamet's curls weep.

    15. A gentle-use teeth whitening pen with bristles full of whitening gel that will give you results so immediate, you'll notice a difference from the very first time you use it (and naturally, blast Chip Skylark's "My Shiny Teeth And Me" in celebration).

    16. A Lay-n-Go cosmetic bag that fans out to become a mat so you can basically cancel the concept of packing and unpacking your beauty arsenal whenever you're on the move.

    17. CoverGirl's TruBlend matte concealer, which blends so seamlessly to your skin tone that it basically does half the work for you. A lot of reviewers noted that they didn't even *need* additional foundation or powders for coverage, so these lil' tubes are working overtime.

    18. A tin of Cirepil blue wax beads that use a gentle hard wax to easily remove both the coarsest and finest of hairs in a matter of minutes, leaving you with skin so smooth that you're going to have to sit on your hands stop yourself from stroking your underarms and legs in public.

    19. An eyelash separator so you can get that full, thick-lashed look from your favorite mascaras and rescue yourself from the dreaded clump — all without running the risk of losing one of your (limited edition! rare! lovely!) eyelashes, or getting a safety pin too close to your eyeball for comfort.

    20. Glossier's Skywash sheer matte lid tint with a diffused texture that blends so seamlessly into your eyelids that you don't have to deal with three other blending shades and a teensy how-to guide on the back of an eyeshadow palette to give it depth.

    21. A thick clear lip gloss that glides on without getting so sticky that half your hair ends up in your mouth the second you get hit by a gust of wind, and will give your lips the perfectly dewy shine of your Instagram dreams.

    22. e.l.f cosmetics' waterproof winged eyeliner pen with a fine point tip designed for hassle-free thin or thick-winged looks, so even a newbie can play with styles until they get one that is *chef's kiss* perfection.

    23. A jar of Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder, a light, airy way to set your makeup that comes with its own tool to make it even easier to apply. This will give your face that extra glow that will make everyone think you actually slept eight hours, hydrated, and acknowledged your to-do list, when really you're just riding the wave of this perfectly subtle shine.

    24. A bottle of nail and cuticle repair oil that you simply brush on your nail beds once a day to condition and strengthen all those brittle spots and hangnails, so you can let your nails ~breathe~ after that gel manicure removal went, uh, a little south.

    25. An anti-aging eye cream that uses vitamin C, vitamin E, rosehip seed oil, and hibiscus flower extract to brighten and firm that sensitive skin around your eyes and neck, and give you a little extra hydration you need on those days when that second cup of coffee isn't *quite* eliminating that second glass of wine you had the night before.

    26. e.l.f. cosmetics' velvet matte lipstick in deep, silky colors that you can apply right onto a bare lip without all the extra prep work or base layers you have to work into with a lot of mattes.

    27. A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that's so effective on all hair types that it's amassed over 4,000 five-star reviews on Amazon — people swear by it for detangling fast, and for doing it without pulling and damaging hair, so you don't have to compromise your hair's natural texture to evict all the little knots and tangles from it.
