    6. Lipstick by Barbie and PÜR that is so beautiful you won't believe it exists for simple commoners like you and I. Luckily for us — it does!

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I recently tested out this lipstick spur of the moment before a night out. While the box it came in was cute (I mean, this is Barbie we're talking about) I was STUNNED when I took at the tube and saw it was literally what glitter dreams are made of. You should've seen my continued surprise when I discovered the lipstick itself was coated in shimmering glitter as well. Aside from being the most aesthetically pleasing beauty product I've ever seen, it also stayed on really well for my entire night despite not having a lip liner at my disposal and eating a slice of pizza.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I have the kind of nails that gel manicures peel off of, so these are really nice because I can apply them and keep them on for a few days and then take them off when I feel like it. They don’t last super long, but for me, that’s a good thing." —sewall

    Promising review: "I couldn't find anything for my 10-year Vegas anniversary that was show-stopping, head-turning, accident-causing gorgeous. Well let me tell you, this did it. The sequins didn't aggravate my underarm. The fit was amazing. I was the sexiest thing on the strip. Was hit on by guys and girls while with my hubby. Don't hesitate, buy the dress!" —Daisy Hodge

    Promising review: "The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new." —FintanCat

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    20. A cozy long-sleeve tee with your monogram on it, because don't all important families plan to put their initials on display?

    If Big Bird designed a pair of socks, these would be them. They're so fuzzy and fantastic, and I definitely need to add them to my wish list.

    Promising review: "Turns out I really hate wearing slippers; I go barefoot in the house all summer, but winter is too chilly for that, especially since I prefer to keep the heater on low, and wear a layer or two if necessary. So, icy feet... (Never wear shoes in the house.) These socks are perfect — I can wear them in the house all day and have warm toes. They’re comfy and they fit well. I have no idea how they’ll hold up, but so far, I love them!" —Katt13

    24. A hydrating argan oil hair mask for refreshing your dry or damaged hair and making it as luscious as a Disney Princess'.


    Have you noticed your ends splitting or breaking off throughout the day? I'm going through that right now but simply don't have time to schedule a haircut. What's a girl to do? OH, right — use this hair mask! Its sole purpose is to repair, store, and strengthen weak, damaged, and over-processed hair, which in turn will help prevent more bad hair days.

    Promising review: "My hair is very thin and curly. The ends are damaged from heat and color, causing my hair to look even more unruly. I do oil treatments once a week and only wash my hair two to three times a week but NOTHING has made my hair feel like this product does. There is an immediate difference as soon as this product touches my hair. It leaves my hair feeling so silky, even after I rinse it out and dry my hair." —Maegan W.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    25. A strappy bralette and high-waisted underwear set that'll make you feel super luxurious, as only velvet and lace can.


    Promising review: "I purchased the eyelash lace velvet set in the color blue. It is a beautiful deep teal color and shockingly good quality for the price. I love the different style approach to a sexy little set and I can’t wait to wear it and either show it off or just enjoy it all by myself!" —WorkHardPlayHard

    Dr Teal's epsom salt is an important part of my pre-bedtime ritual. I'm a bath aficionado and have tried many (many) products in my tub — nothing compares to this classic. It smells heavenly of lavender, relieves any aches and pains in my body, and helps me to relax overall.

    Promising review: "Dr Teal's is my favorite brand of epsom salts out there. This is a large bag and will last you a long time. The lavender scent is relaxing and not overpowering, it really helps me relax and sleep better at night." —Nicole

    28. A lightweight, fast-absorbing cuticle oil made with grape seed, sesame, kukui, sunflower, and cupuaçu oils that'll change your at-home mani forever.

    A fresh mani can change your entire mood if you ask me. However, long waits and high prices at a salon can often sour the experience. Enter the at-home manicure! Don't just slather on polish carelessly — set the scene with candles and calming music then get started by using this fancy (but inexpensive) cuticle oil.

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this oil almost every night for several months now and it works great. My cuticles used to be so dry and cracked from constant hand-washing (I’m an elementary school teacher, so I’m always scrubbing my hands!), but I’ve seen a huge improvement since I started using this oil." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —NG

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    30. Gold under-eye collagen masks you can use to treat your under-eye bags after a night you've *accidentally* stayed up past 3 a.m. researching Princess Diana conspiracy theories.


    Promising review: "These eye masks are absolutely amazing! I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes, as well as slight bags from being a mother of four. Eye creams do absolutely nothing for me, and I gave these a try just on a whim, not really expecting much. But they really work! The results aren't permanent, but I put these on for about an hour in the evening while I relax and watch TV, and my under eyes are much lighter and less puffy. I absolutely love these eye masks, and I will never be without them again." —Kate Johnson

    Get a pack of 12 pairs from Amazon for $22.

    31. A set of ceramic marbled coasters that'll show anyone who enters your home how classy you are — you won't find any water rings on these tables, baby!

    32. Clip-in synthetic hair extensions to create the luscious Kate Middleton–like locks you've always dreamt of with minimal effort.

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am very picky about hair extensions. I've spent hundreds of dollars on numerous sets, and have never been completely satisfied. UNTIL NOW! These are BY FAR my favorite — and for such an amazing price! If you're worried that this deal is too good to be true (because I was) then stop worrying! And buy these extensions. Also, I have very short hair and they still look great! They're very full and luscious. And you can straighten them! I'm very happy!" —Makenzie Long

    Get a set of five clips from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four lengths and 22 colors).

    33. A Leneige lip sleeping mask that'll have you ready to pucker up from the moment you wake up. Sleeping Beauty has nothin' on you.,

    Promising review: "Favorite. Lip product. EVER! I have a horrible, horrible, horrible habit of picking at my dry, flaky lips. When I say horrible, I mean horrible — if there is one bit of flaky skin, I pick at it. I would say that 95% of the time my lips have had bloody blotches and completely raw from being picked at nonstop (thanks a lot, anxiety). That being said, I really wish I would have taken 'before' photos to show how amazing this stuff really is because seriously, it's that great. Seriously, my lips have never looked better. I will be recommending this to anyone and everyone who needs a lip product and making sure I always have this on hand. The little spatula it comes with is also really handy (and cute)." —brendaleigh

    Get it from Amazon for $13.33+ (available in four scents).

    34. A luxurious satin robe to make you feel elegant whether you have *special company* or are lounging around watching episodes of The Crown., Amazon

    Promising review: "I wear this robe all of the time in my house, it's really great if you are sensitive to slight changes in temperature because you get neither too hot nor too cold under the light satin fabric. It's also great for covering yourself up when there are people at home, but you don't have time to put a bra on. The pattern is also really interesting and makes me feel fancy." —Breezy The Mage

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 10 styles).

    35. And a Queen Elizabeth II Funko Pop, in case you're truly convinced you were separated at birth from Will and Harry and you want to pay tribute to Gan-Gan.


    Yes, that's what Prince George calls the Queen. Just being in the presence of HRH in toy form should be enough to make you feel like part of the royal family.
