sephora.com

Promising review: "This is the best summer 2018 palette. It has the perfect ratio of mattes and shimmers. All the shimmers are beautiful duochrome goodness. They go on great with a brush or fingers. I don't even need to wet the brush to get a great shimmer. The mattes blend amazingly well and aren't chalky. The color story is great for summer and the price is reasonable. 20 shadows for $45 means they're only $2.25 per pan." —katiekat81

18. Regal, nature-inspired barrettes for anyone looking to branch out and try a chic new hairstyle.

Promising review: "These are so cute I can’t stand it. The two smaller pins really hold my hair in place, while the larger branch is a gorgeous decoration. For an elaborate updo, it’d probably be a good idea to supplement with regular bobby pins just for peace of mind. I got them in gold, but these barrettes are so fun that I’m considering getting them in every finish available. They're very pretty and not at all cheap-looking, despite the very affordable price. They'd be great for a wedding or prom." —P. S. CraneGet a set of three from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two colors).

Check out more cool ideas for using string lights.

Promising review: "I really do love these micro LED lights for tricking out my wheelchair. The battery packs are so tiny that I've been able to use Command velcro strips to attach them to a wider part of the inside wheel of the wheelchair. They don't get in the way and I love how they look. I've gotten a ton of compliments. As someone who's still on the youngish side and in a wheelchair, it's nice to hear people pointing out the lights on my chair instead of just pointing (hey, it happens). These were particularly nice around the holidays at an event with lights all around the city, because I looked like I was part of it. I actually intend to keep them on all year for safety purposes. I've already had these on for longer than 30 hours (not consecutively) and the lights haven't even dimmed. They hold their shape nicely. I had a very specific purpose and for that purpose, these lights ROCK." —dani

Promising review: "I love this mask! The packaging is great and the product works really well. The mask feels really nice and cooling, almost a little tingly, on my skin. Other face masks I've tried haven't been able to help my skin's redness. But when I removed this mask, the redness was instantly calmed, which was super impressive and really surprising. I would definitely recommend this mask to people with redness, inflammation of the skin, and those with large pores!" —Dianne
