    40 Makeup Products You Might Just Have A Blast Using

    ColourPop's Barbie-inspired lipstick, a Morphe palette with over 35 fall colors, pink pearlescent highlighter from Kylie Cosmetics, and so many more playful products.

    1. Glossier Ultralip will add shine and color to help you create the perfect pout every time. It comes in an array of shades, so good luck trying to decide which to try out first.

    It's super buildable and is vegan and cruelty-free. BuzzFeed writer Ali Faccenda (shown above) tested this lippie and enjoyed it! She said:

    "This is an amazing lip product for summer. It's hydrating and not sticky (which is, in my opinion, the worst thing about glosses). I love applying a light coat and then blending it in with my finger so it isn't too shiny but it looks great without blending too. I find that in the summertime, regular lipsticks and liquid lippies can be way too drying so this balm is the perfect hybrid between lipstick and gloss. It has a gorgeous sheen that looks natural and healthy. You can even apply it on the high points of your cheeks for some glow and a pop of color (no need for blush!)."

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in nine shades).

    2. Morphe's Fall into Fabulous Artistry Palette is a must-have for anyone who wishes it was always autumn and worshiiiiips a fall foliage color scheme.

    Promising review: "All the colors are so beautiful. Just came in the mail and I did swatches and I'm obsessed!!!!!!!" —Beemae

    Get it from Ulta for $26.

    3. Princess Tiana-inspired liquid lipsticks you might want to buy two of right from the start because your sister is *definitely* going to try and steal it from you. Don't mess with Disney adults who also love beauty products.

    Promising review: "This shade is such a beautiful, rich, and versatile shade of red that I bought a backup. I don't want to be without this new staple shade in my collection. It transitions perfectly from day to night, and has a pillowy yet moisturizing feel to the lips. I'm not normally a liquid lipstick fan because they chap my lips so badly, but this formula does not do that. I highly recommend this shade and formula if you're looking for great color payoff without the chapped lips from liquid lipstick." —Ashley S.

    Get it from Colourpop for $9.

    4. Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil you'll love if you haven't stopped listening to "Umbrella" since 2007 and also love shimmer.

    Promising review: "YESSS! If you want to be a bright glistening glitter goddess, get this right now! This gives your skin a wet look and highlights you beautifully." —BritttXo

    Get it from Sephora for $39 (available in three shades).

    5. Revlon Oil Absorbing Volcanic Roller you can swipe across your face to pick up any excess oil you might typically find lingering around (shiny forehead — I'm lookin' at YOU!). It'll do a way better job than those sheets you've had sitting in your makeup bag for far too long.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical but this immediately soaks up your oils and leaves that blurred look. It’s also really small so it makes it travel/purse friendly. It kind of pulls off foundation, but works like the oil blotting sheets but BETTER!" —Cynthia

    Get it from Target for $12.99.

    6. Glossier Boy Brow, because who wouldn't want flawless eyebrows every day? It has a mascara-like applicator and creamy formula you can count on to lift and hold your your brow hairs in place.

    BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria Glavan is passionate about this product. Here's what she had to say:

    "This magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does what exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better."

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in five shades).

    7. Milk Makeup Kush lip balm will become THE product you can't leave your home without — it'll calm and hydrate your lips thanks to its cannabis seed oil, shea butter, and moringa butter.

    BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd is a big fan of this lip balm:

    "I love this lip balm because it's ~super~ moisturizing. The 'Green Dragon' shade goes on completely clear so it also makes a great base to wear under lipstick. It's ultra comfy to wear, nonsticky, and doesn't flake. Plus, the lid is magnetic and the overall packaging is really nice quality."

    Get it from Sephora for $16 (available in five shades).

    8. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette Stoned Rose, perfect for anyone who is relatively new to doing makeup and will appreciate having clear instructions as to what belongs where. You can thank me later.

    Promising review: "I adore this palette. It’s the perfect everyday, can-do-my-makeup-without-thinking-and-still-feel-beautiful palette. I feel like the pan size is still easy to get a brush into, and the complexion products are also great for the eyes. Every time I wear it, I get complimented on my eyes (green)! I feel put-together, and it is great for travel or when you’re in a rush. I can’t believe that out of all the makeup I own, this little gem that honestly looks quite boring, has become an instant favorite." —ajbrown512

    Get it from Sephora for $75.

    9. Nars blush, which comes in *so* many different shades, you'll probably return for more once you see how nicely it adds some color to your cheeks.

    Promising review: "My favorite go-to blush! It has a shimmer to it that really makes your skin glow. It also has a natural look to it too and I really like that. If you don’t have this, you should!" —KBMcMahon

    Get it from Sephora for $30 (available in 20 shades).

    10. Stila's Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow, a must-have for anyone who would appreciate a little glitz 'n' glam any day of the week. This eye shadow is shimmery, fabulous, and simple to apply.

    Promising review: "For the girls who love sparkly glam looks but hate the mess it usually causes, this is for you ;) I hate trying to wear glitter shadow and it ends up everywhere lol. This product is the perfect alternative, I can get a lovely glitter eye look and it stays put. Works well on its own or layered over other shadows." —hillarynreallife

    Get it from Amazon for $24 (available in 10 shades) or Sephora for $24 (available in 7 shades).

    11. Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint you can count on to leave you with an A+ lip without that yucky, crusted, dried-out feeling that often comes with a matte formula.

    BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd loves this lipstick:

    "One of my biggest problems with liquid lipstick if that a lot of them will flake and peel. This Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint does not! It dries super fast and then you can barely feel it on your lips at all. It can be a tad dry so I just like to make sure my lips are moisturized before I apply it. It stays on all day long and I'm obsessed with the neutral shades 'Exposed' and 'Festival.' They both have a pinkish tint and make great everyday lip colors." 

    Get it from Tarte for $18 (originally $20; available in 12 shades).

    12. ColourPop Lizzie McGuire-inspired makeup palette that'll, quite literally, pay tribute to what your high school beauty dreams were made of — only to bring 'em right into your current makeup routine. Whether you always wanted to be Lizzie, Miranda, or (dare I say???) Kate...you'll be able to create a fun look with these colors.

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS!! It DEFINITELY sums up what middle school/high school Lizzie would have worn. I had a Lizzie M. bed covers set and it was literally all these colors and the curtains were the green and pink. So cute. Great pigmentation. 10/10. CP killed this." —Shelbie

    Get it from ColourPop for $16.50 (originally $22).

    13. A set of five Kulfi Beauty highly-pigmented eyeliners featuring an ultra-creamy formula (I see you aloe vera extract and vitamin E) that'll stay in place for the entire eye. Anyone feel like applying a cat-eye right about meow?

    Kulfi Beauty, named after a type of South Asian ice cream, is a South Asian-owned business that makes products that celebrate and empower the diverse needs of their communities.

    Promising review: "These are just what I have searched a decade for. I've never had an eyeliner go on so smooth or effortlessly before. The color stays vibrant all day, not sinking into my skin or transferring elsewhere. I am in love with this product." —Andrea J

    Get them from Kulfi Beauty for $85.

    14. Essence Lash Princess mascara might just leave people wondering if you recently got eyelash extensions (which it feels like everyone and anyone has been raving about). Joke's on them!

    My fellow editor Emma Lord is a BIG fan of this mascara. She said:

    "Hello, that is my face above, because I bought into the hype of over 35,000 positive reviews and now I will never look back!! Putting it on is like giving my eyelashes butterfly wings. It doesn't get clumpy, it stays put ALL the live long day (I spent all of this ridiculously hot pandemic summer wearing it, so I can speak to that), and you can apply it on very lightly if you don't want it to look so dramatic, or continue applying for longer lashes each time."

    Promising review: "I have to be honest, for a 'cheap' three-pack mascara, I did NOT have high expectations. These, however, exceeded my expectations and went MUCH MUCH farther. I had been buying a certain $25/tube brand (rhymes with truepique) and I like these just as much!! I’m saving a TON of money and like my lashes just as much." —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. A Barbie Dreamhouse lipstick kit I probably would've sold my soul for as a kid — it's pretty in pink and the packaging is simply *chef's kiss* perfection. Alexa? Play "Barbie Girl" by Aqua.

    Promising review: "Beautiful color. This is dreamy on your lips. Lasts better than expected." —Meladie L.

    Get it from ColourPop for $16.

    Promising review: "Very simple and easy to use. Pencil glides on making it easy to line lips accurately. Color is very pigmented and pencils are a great addition to lip colors. I own almost every shade." —CallHerKB
