    1. An Urban Decay travel-ready eyeshadow palette with a whopping *21* shades, because your face is a work of art and deserves to be treated as such.

    All of these widely-varied shades are made with Urban Decay’s classic formula that gives each hue a velvety texture that's both rich in color and super blendable! AND they're cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "You really can do so many looks with this palette. In my personal opinion, I could take this one palette with me and have all I need for my eyeshadow. The colors are great and the formula is what you expect from Urban Decay: so amazing! I really love the packaging. It's a somewhat large palette, but it is very thin and I think it will travel well. The packaging quality is outstanding. I don't know how anyone can be anything but impressed with this palette!" β€”TheMACIsBack

    Promising review: "This is a great little all-in-one kit for your household or car. It has all the essential tools you could need for home in a nice little compact case that's easy to store and keep anywhere.

    Promising review: "I have owned this for a month or so and love it. It is sturdy, feels nice in the hand, and I love the fire engine red grip around the middle. They make really good coffee or brew-able cocoa. The most impressive part of this coffee maker is its insulating ability. I often make a drink and then forget it's on the counter as I get super busy.

    Promising review: "This is great quality and I love to look at the smiley face. It is just the right size and strength I need while using it for my baking and even stirring items. I have broken so many in the past and it is still unbendable/breakable. It's made of heavy-duty material, which makes it a long-lasting product." β€”Annette1915

    Am I so confident in this moisturizer that I included a makeup-free picture in my review? ....Yes.

    Promising review: "i was looking for a new nighttime moisturizer so I thought I would give this one a try. I'm now finishing my first jar and already have the second one waiting in my bathroom. I do use this at night, although I have used it during the day under makeup and it works just fine. I think it's thick enough that you can put a little on and still feel moisturized, or lather it on and it's still not greasy. One of the reasons I bought this was because of the ingredients. I love that it has minimal but powerhouse ingredients. It doesn't break me out or make my oily skin even more oily. I will continue to keep using this as long as it's made!" β€”speciouspoppy

    Get it from Sephora for $45.

    21. A silicone baking mold for bite-size brownies, because you already don't plan on sharing with anyone. If they're mini it's totally fine to eat the whole pan, right? Right.

    Promising review: "I've been using this for a number of months now and just love it. I make chocolate squares using coconut oil, cocoa powder and swerve. This mold has been great. It works well, releases the chocolate easily, and clean up is easy too. I definitely recommend!" β€”Sheri Gardens

    Promising review: "I've always had incredible difficulty climaxing. I assumed there was something wrong with me and that I might just be orgasm-less forever. I was skeptical of the SONA at first (having had terrible luck with other vibrators), but I can honestly say that buying it was the best thing I could have done for myself! It feels so different from other toys and has allowed me to feel more pleasure than I ever thought I could experience. Thank you SONA for my first orgasm!" β€”Elise

    Promising review: "It feels a lot lighter than a mud mask. I really enjoy how light it feels on my face, but how soft my face feels after the mask is complete. I have enjoyed using this each time." β€”RSie

    Promising review: "I love the tea forte single steep pouches.They're perfectly balanced, not too strong or acidic, or too fruity. I have only added milk or sweetener to the chai tea to make it authentic, but most have the right level of sweet and smooth to make them perfect right from the first sip. The packaging is nice and the descriptions are accurate and enticing. Tea time is a great part of my day now!" β€”KA Winter

    Get a 15-pack from Amazon for $14.25.

    Promising review: "I didn't realize until I slept on this pad for the first time how much the quality of my mattress had been affecting my sleep. I've been using it for about a year now and have noticed a major difference in the quality of my sleep and my ability to sleep through the night. I would absolutely recommend." β€”Julia
