    8 Things BuzzFeed's Freddie Ransome Is Obsessed With Right Now

    From eyeliner that makes cat eyes easy AF to undies that make you feel *commando*, you'll see why these need to be in your life too!!!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    HEY! BuzzFeed has a new beauty and style site called As/Is, which is all about celebrating your gorgeous and intelligent is, duh! And to celebrate its launch, we're interviewing some of the fierce ladies behind As/Is and getting the scoop on their favorite, ride-or-die products!

    We asked Freddie Ransome, BuzzFeed LadyLike's producer/extrodinaire/wearer of many hats (or bras) what the heck she can't live without. And you know what? NOW YOU CAN'T EITHER. Because they're fantastic. This is a serious website, ok, we only deliver FACTS.

    So let's pour a glass (or two) and have Freddie spill the deets on what's worth our moolah.


    1. A pair of vintage-inspired Sorrelli earrings that'll dazzle people so much, they'll never guess how much they actually cost.

    Freddie: "They’re big obnoxious studs and I love how simple they are while still making a statement."

    Get them from Sorrelli for $40.

    2. A jar of Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel moisturizer, because it's time we *flake* on pesky, dry skin once and for all. We'll chalk it up as a ~rough patch~ in our lives.

    Freddie: "I have SUPER dry skin and this hydrates instantaneously without leaving my skin oily. It feels super plump and bouncy after application. I apply it before bed!"

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    3. A pair of Under Armour stretch thongs so you can feel like you're not even wearing any underwear while avoiding being a total ~bum~.

    Freddie: "IT FEELS LIKE COMMANDO, BUT IT’S NOT. These are great for working out and everyday life. They’re seamless and you can wear them with the thinnest of leggings without seeing a panty line!"

    Get them from Zappos for $12 (available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors).

    4. A pair of Laura Lombardi gold hoop earrings (they look heavy but they're hollow!) for a *gilded age* of nonstop compliments.

    Freddie: "These complete any look. They’re thick, old school, but hollow, so they don’t weigh down your earlobes!"

    Get them from Laura Lombardi Jewelry for $105.

    5. A bottle of ultra-pigmented Sephora Collection liquid eyeliner (hellooo, 12-hour long-lasting wear) that'll create cat eyes so sharp, you'll have to enter rooms with a warning.,

    Freddie: "It goes on SO smooth and SO pigmented. I feel like a millennial Monet when I paint on my cat eye with this liner. And it’s only $12."

    Get it from Sephora for $12 (available in five shades).

    6. A pack of Carmex medicated lip balm so chapped pouts never intervene in your selfies again — it's hydrated smiles from here on out.

    Freddie: "Carmex > Blistex. Don’t @ me."

    Get them from Target: a three-pack of sticks or tubes for $2.69.

    7. A bottle of Lancôme eye makeup remover, because getting your beauty rest isn't so great if you wake up with raccoon eyes.

    It's super gentle for even sensitive skin thanks to the fact that it conditions skin for a *refreshing feeling* as it removes your makeup!

    Freddie: "All I need is a makeup remover that doesn’t make my eyes burn when I’m scrubbing off my eye makeup, and this does just that. So soothing!"

    Get it from Sephora for $30.

    8. A bottle of Devacurl pre-cleanse detangler for getting your mane to its full potential of bounce and shine while still keeping your *au natural* appeal.

    This pup is designed to be used before cleansing during your shower routine. Its pracaxi oil provides slip while saffron flower adds shine. Plus its natural sugar-based technology guarantees breakage resistance. AND, it's vegan, wheat- and silicone-free!

    Freddie: "Lather a small amount on a section of hair before cleansing it and the tangles fall right out! It’s magical and makes wash day less of a pain in the ass."

    Get it from Sephora for $28.

    You, after getting all of these things and waiting for your new life to begin:
