Shout out to Rihanna for continuing to do that.

Promising review: "I wore this amazing lip paint for 13 hours with no touch-ups, and I could’ve kept going. I had three meals (including Thanksgiving), and loads of drinks and IT STAYED ON. One dip gets you enough product for several applications. I can’t quite describe how it goes on but I’ll try: it’s like painting a canvas, except the canvas is your lips. You only need one layer or swipe and you have full opacity. The applicator has a flat side that can be flipped to an edge to get a sharper line and more precise application." —MsKMJ

Price: $24

2. Sephora Collection Sleeping Masks are each infused with a different ingredient to relax your skin and smooth and brighten your complexion.

The green tea mask mattifies and protects against blemishes, the pomegranate mask energizes your skin, the rose mask brightens and moisturizes, the lotus mask soothes and moisturizes, the pearl mask perfects and brightens, the algae mask purifies and detoxes, the avocado mask nourishes and repairs, and the orchid mask smoothes and protects aging skin. Promising review: "I was reluctant at first to use a sleeping mask. I thought it would make a mess on my pillowcase but it went on smoothly and dries quickly. My skin was hydrated, glowing, and felt smooth." —mesmeraPrice: $4 each (available in eight varieties).

This stopped the creasing and my eyeshadow lasted much longer with little to no creasing." —SurizadayPrice: $13 (also available in Original, Eden, and Sin).

Promising review: "I had been looking for an exfoliating system and found this product. After reading positive reviews, I decided to try it out. Overall, the product is very easy to use.

There was a warming sensation, not overpowering at all. After I rinsed and dried my face, my skin was incredibly smooth and silky! This is a definite must-have product!" —xcreamxodaxPrice: $72

15. Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask can brighten skin and smooth out its texture with green tea extracts and amino acids.

Promising review: "I'm a total sucker for sheet masks, so I was super excited to see GlamGlow come out with one. At first, I didn't feel much even though it was bubbling. After the minute mark, I started feeling it working, it was mega refreshing. I was also really impressed that once you remove the mask and start working in the product it gets super thick, like shaving cream level thick. This mask would feel AMAZING if you've worn a full face of makeup all day." —IdoruTrashPrice: $9

16. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is ridiculously long-lasting, highly pigmented, and won't fade or crack when you apply since it has a brush tip!

Promising review: "My eyelids are pretty oily, and even with primer, I have a hard time finding products that stay where I want them to. Even after everything else has slid off my eyelids, this still looks as good as it did when I applied it! I'm on my fifth liner pen and still love it to pieces. It's richly pigmented, the line draws smoothly with no tugging, and it doesn't feather. Despite its staying power, it comes off pretty easily with a decent makeup remover. I hope Kat Von D never discontinues this because it's the best!" —drnicPrice: $20 (also available in brown).

21. DpHue Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse gently cleanses your scalp without stripping it of its natural oils, which means it's perfect for naturals who need a little touch up before wash day.

Promising review: "I have very fine but curly hair and have been no-pooing for several months. I was so excited to try this wash because conditioner alone was too heavy and I didn't feel like my hair and scalp were getting the cleansing I needed. This product worked so well for me. My hair felt so soft and clean without feeling dry. The ACV rids my scalp of dirt/oil/product while the added aloe and other moisturizers leave it feeling soft and bouncy. I now only use this wash and do not feel any need for shampoo or conditioner." —finencurlyPrice: $35
