    22 Beauty Products You're Gonna Want In Your Life In 2021

    Your new beauty obsession is just a click away...

    1. An Ilia mascara that not only makes your lashes look suuuuper long, but it also conditions your lashes to feel incredibly soft.

    2. A reusable exfoliating Japanese towel to upgrade your shower experience and truly take care of your skin! These really scrub that dead skin off your bod, help with skin conditions like eczema and keratosis pilaris, and unveil clean, super soft skin. Reviewers love how it's easy to reach your back with this, too!

    3. A dewy luminous base cream for when it's too much to put on foundation everyday. This gives your skin a quick pick-me-up that evens your complexion, moisturizes, and offers a glow so even when you're not wearing makeup, you still look bright and fresh!

    4. An epilator to remove both thick and fine hair at the root so you can go for several weeks without reaching for a razor. It has massage rollers and two speed settings for customizable comfort!

    8. The MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix soft matte foundation stick is perfect for your regular makeup application and for touch-ups throughout the day. Reviewers love how natural a look it provides, and that it'll last through the whole day, even on oily skin.

    11. A killer Fenty highlighter that creates a silky and iridescent cream-to-powder glow on the cheeks (and eyes, collarbones, and anywhere else you want to gleam and glimmer). The shades range from subtle daytime shimmer to experimental ice blue and eye-blinding shine so take your pick!

    12. And a Fenty body luminizer to give you that sun-soaked island glow all year long — even if you've never even been to an island! Your body gets a lovely glistening sheen; basically, this is highlighter but for your bod!

    13. A Kaja heart-shaped lip gloss stick because it'll give you the supplest lips with nourishing argan and plum seed oils and a rich formula that basically melts on your lips for shine and colour. The fun heart-shaped applicator fits right in your Cupid's bow too — pucker up!

    14. A Cosrx Snail Mucin Power Essence because it works with 96% snail mucin for intense repair and hydration that's still gentle. It's packed with replenishing nutrients that help prevent and repair damage, hyperpigmentation, dryness, and acne until your skin's elasticity and glow is at its best. Sometimes I have nightmares they'll stop selling this 😳.

    16. A dry shampoo from Kérastase that'll breathe new life into your days-old 'do, absorbing oil and creating volume, because some days you just don't feel like doing a full wash, y'know?
