    Prepare your perfectly lined eyes and get your cards at the ready, because these are i-m-p-r-e-s-s-i-v-e.

    1. Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator — it powerfully exfoliates and perks up your complexion wth dermatologist-approved microderm crystals to fade lasting acne scars or unevenness. With aloe vera, coconut, and vitamins B and E, it'll deeply soothe skin for all-over happy radiance.

    2. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day dry shampoo doesn't just cover up unwashed hair — it actually cleans it. Powders soak up any oil, sweat, and odor. Plus the formula is specially designed to shake off so you don't have that pesky white residue.

    3. Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara lifts, curls, and separates for a look that'll make people think you're wearing falsies, thanks to a wand that's covered in mini hooks to give every lash some special treatment.

    4. Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Exfoliator buffs away dead skin cells to reveal refreshed and healthy skin — a common remedy to acne scars and discoloration.

    5. Cargo Land Down Under Eye Shadow Palette offers a wide variety of 12 highly pigmented shades, plus a double-tipped brush and black eyeliner pencil to *top it all off*.

    6. Pixi by Petra Shea Butter Lip Balm nourishes your pucker with ingredients like shea butter and Vitamin E for soothed and protected lips. The balms come in four pretty hues, so you always look naturally refreshed.

    7. Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo moisturizes and strengthens your hair with antioxidant- and fatty acid-rich obliphica oil (but remains weightless). Depend on this to repair dead ends and enhance shine so you can walk away feeling like you have healthier, bouncier locks.

    8. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner touts a pen-style applicator that's foolproof for even the biggest rookie (a.k.a. most of us). It's up to you how you want your cat eye to look (and this gets bonus points for its fade-proof technology).

    9. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask works like a peel you'd normally shell big bucks out for at a spa — but without the irritation or scary bill. It contains beta hydroxy acids to gently resurface and purify skin for a look-at-me glow.

    10. Milk Makeup Highlighter (ever heard of it?) creates an irresistible dewy sheen that even Kim K. would approve of. And with ingredients like mango butter, peach nectar, and avocado oils that moisturize all day long (hello makeup AND skincare), what else could you want?

    11. Juara Candlenut Body Creme dramatically moisturizes even the most parched skin. Its formula (first used by Indonesian healers) is packed with fatty acids for natural hydration without being greasy.

    12. Beauty Protector Protect and Oil gives you the best of both worlds: an amazing scent and ~head-turning~ shine, courtesy of its strengthening argon oil. If you straighten, curl, or blow dry your hair every morning, add this to your routine for protection and extra luster.

    13. Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser clears skin with the effectiveness of a dermatologist — probably because it was designed by one. This face wash takes care of zits, blackheads, and enlarged pores, and finally controls excess oil. Ahhh, *squeaky clean*.

    14. Oribe Après Beach Wave and Sine Spray earned its place as a celebrity and stylist favorite by easily whipping up (and holding) a professional 'do. This two-in-one combo adds texture and sheen without any crunch.

    15. Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain changes the game with a formula specialized for YOU. It adjusts to your body's chemistry for a customized hue. In case that's not enough, it's filled with olive and avocado oils, rose flower wax, and beeswax for the most supple skin and lips ever.

    16. Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+ acts as both primer and foundation. Streamline your beauty routine by using just this to smooth lines, soften pores, and blur uneven skin. The shades are self-adjusting so they feel custom made.

    17. Chella Eyebrow Pencil defines your brows without overdoing it (we all know what THAT looks like). Just glide it on for a natural, hair-like effect.

    18. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream kicks flaky skin to the curb with glycoproteins to shield you from environmental damage — perfect now that winter is around the corner. Desert plant extracts nourish while squalane restores your skin's natural moisture balance.

    19. The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream brings your favorite features forward with a look-at-me glow. It's brimming with antioxidants and vitamins to put your health first, and looks perfectly luminous both under foundation or mixed with lotion.

    20. Number 4 Fluoro5 Elixir Restore and Repair Oil transforms damaged, dry hair into luscious, vivacious locks. Just pump and add to damp hair, or even touch up already dried hair to restore its natural sheen.

    21. Jouer Cosmetics Matte Moisture Tint provides picture-perfect coverage and diminishes shine. And you won't just look good — you'll also feel great, thanks to vitamins A, C, and E to safeguard your complexion and the always-needed SPF 15 UV protection.

    22. Laura Geller New York GlamLASH Volumizing Mascara puts that va va voom into your eyelashes. It's clump-free and long-lasting so your wink is full-watt around the clock.

    23. Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin drastically improves redness, dryness, and even eczema. Its made up of ceramides (a lipid molecule that dry skin lacks) to boost your skin's natural ability to retain moisture and repair it with ingredients like folic acid.

    24. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow multitasks so you don't have to: it hydrates and calms your complexion with aloe and chamomile, and it evens your tone with self-adjusting pigments. Throw in antioxidants to protect your skin, and you're out the door.

    25. Bbrowbar Brow Definer shapes your arches with (water- and smudge-proof) ease. It provides a matte finish, and lets you decide where to fill in with its slim, retractable tip. And it doesn't stop there — vitamins C and E add a healthy bonus.

    26. Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream wakes up even the most tired-looking bags — and it's 99% natural! Made with hyaluronic acid and botanicals like chamomile, cucumber, witch hazel, and aloe vera, it not only brightens but also soothes and relieves puffiness.

    27. IPKN Radiant Cream Primer SPF 15 readies your pretty face for foundation by forming a smooth canvas with refined pores and an enhanced skin tone. Its combination of fruit extracts and shimmering pearl power leaves your skin glowing before you're even on to the next step.
