    REN Skincare

    Promising review: "This little product is a game-changer. It is the silkiest balm, of any kind, that I've ever used. It absorbs completely. In the morning, my skin is so silky soft. I've only been using it for about a week, so I'm interested to see what the long term results will be. Love the product and the company!!" —Hilary M

    Get it from REN Skincare for $48.

    2. Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask is made just for — surprise — your lips, because I know they could use some backup as they face the wrath of this harsh winter and its unforgiving, frigid winds.

    All you have to do is apply a bit of this before you hit the sheets, and the moisturizing ingredients will do the rest of the work as you sleep.

    Promising review: "I love this lip mask! I have always struggled to find a lip product that would keep my severely dry lips at bay and this is the product! I have been using this for the past few weeks and I have never had such plush smooth lips. I wear it at night and sometimes during the day depending on what I am doing. If you struggle with dry lips, I highly recommend you give this a try." —Holly2176

    Get it from Sephora for $22 (available in five scents).

    3. Living Proof's 5-in-1 Styling Treatment delivers conditioning, strength, volume, and polish to your locks right after you hop out of the shower, ultimately cutting out a bunch of other products that can be time consuming. Simply apply on damp hair, style, and go!

    BuzzFeeder Elizabeth Lilly says it's totally transformed her thick mane that reacts the second humidity hits.

    "I've received lots of compliments on my hair since switching to this product, from random people asking if I paid for a blowout (NOPE!) to a friend's roommate exclaiming, 'Your hair is editorial straight!' (Thanks!) So yeah, it’s legit. It’s also extremely lightweight because it’s made without parabens or phthalates, which I’m told weigh down your hair! And it’s safe to use on straight, wavy, or curly hair. I pull it through my hair from roots to ends and then blow-dry my hair (with this blow-dryer) and a brush (like this one). Without this 5-in-1 miracle stuff, it’d take a lot more product (and effort) to make my hair look like this post-blowout. In short, if Living Proof stops making this stuff, I’m buying a damn case of it." —Elizabeth Lilly

    4. Clove + Hallow's The Everything Oil is all about the name. The four ingredients in the formula (say hello to squalane, organic rosehip, black cumin seed, and argan oils) work together to do just a little of everything: Regulate skin's oil production, moisturize, and deliver a dose of antioxidants.

    Promising review: "Where do I begin?! I’m a 41-year-old woman who is recently dealing with adult acne. I have tried so many different products, paying ridiculous amounts of money and I was at the point where I’d try anything and I’m glad I gave this oil a shot. It truly is the only product that helps my acne. Not only helps with my acne but controls my oily skin. Weird, you would think putting oil on your face would make it note oily. Nope this everything oil is amazing!! My skin had never felt/looked so good. This will be my go to product from now on!" —Shannon R.

    Get it from Clove + Hallow for $28.

Consistency, texture and pigmentation is amazing. I would highly recommend trying and I’m already bragging about this brand to my friends." —Aiste P

    6. Fenty's wildly popular Match Stix Trio comes with two matte sticks for concealing and contouring, and a shimmer option for highlighting so you get everything you need for a flawless look in one package.

    different shades of the sticks

    IS THERE ANYTHING RIH CAN'T DO?! *The answer is an obvious no. Obviously.*

    Promising review: "I have attempted to use many, many high-end brands in the past with no luck. I would need to buy two shades for a decent tone. So as a result, I don't wear foundation. Not the case with Fenty Beauty... ONE bottle, no mixing. The match stix are really beautiful. The veil is awesome. Clearly, a great deal of love, thoughtfulness and expertise went into these creations. Cheers, Ms. Fenty on your magnificent enterprise." —Dr. J

    Get a set of three from Sephora for $37 (originally $54; available in four color sets).

    7. John Frieda's Hot Air Brush will make it look like you just walked straight into a salon and dropped some serious money on a blowout. Here's to having (inexpensive) gorgeous soft waves and volume for days.,

    Promising review: "THIS PRODUCT IS TRULY EVERYTHING!!! It is lightweight making it very easy to hold, the heat temperature on high is perfect — it's perfect to style hair without causing heat damage), the bristles are soft so hair slides through and there's no breakage at all. The feature that I LOVE is that it has a cool setting to let curls cool down before releasing them (no need to use hot rollers). CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS HAIR TOOL. How I use it: I use the high setting on the roots all the way down to the ends, I rolled up the ends and leave it there for about 20 seconds (high setting) and then I put the cool setting on for about 10 seconds, then I start unrolling the brush and gently remove it to reveal bouncy & natural-looking curls. SIMPLY AMAZING!!!" —FashionChic

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in two sizes).

    8. Chanel's Mademoiselle Perfume has notes of orange, jasmine, rose, and vanilla that will leave you feeling elegant and super sexy. Honestly, the bottle is so gorgeous even your vanity will feel sexy.

    bottle of perfume

    Promising review: "Literally, every time I step into an Uber or a Lyft, one of the first questions the driver asks is what scent I'm wearing so they can buy the same for their girlfriend. This scent is just so classic and the longest-wearing scent I've ever had! Even when I can't smell it on myself anymore, late into the night I'll still get compliments — it's crazy. The 3.4 oz bottle has lasted me SO LONG!! I want to say over a year and a half and still smells just as good as new and I use it everyday!! So the longevity is amazing." —jelitaeve

    Get it from Sephora (available in three sizes) or Nordstrom for $82+ (available in three sizes).

    9. Huda Beauty's New Nude Eyeshadow Palette features 18 super pigmented mattes and sparkly shimmers to give you a variety of looks and colors. Seriously...this may be the prettiest set of shades my eyes have ever seen.

    palette opened up and styled on a satin sheet

    Promising review: "This palette is absolutely gorgeous! The colours blend beautifully. The shimmers are beautiful. Huda did a good job with the colour range and all of the colours are right up my alley! The shimmers and the matte colours are just perfect and they all blend well. This is definitely a holy grail palette for me. If you had to pick one palette, I would pick this one. This has easily become one of my favourite palettes of all time. It is going to be hard to top this one." —KiranT

    Get it from Sephora for $65.

    10. Glossier's Stretch Concealer is made with elastic waxes to move *with* your skin instead of caking on top of it.

    different shades of the concealer styled on pink background

    Promising review: "This concealer makes me look like I got eight hours of sleep when I'm working on four. Where all other concealers have caked in the fine lines now appearing under my eyes — thanks, 30s — this stuff just glides over them and conceals them too. Total magic." —herhere

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in 12 shades).

    11. Drunk Elephant's D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Serum creates a stunning bronze tint while also protecting your skin from nasty pollutants. All you have to do is mix with sunscreen, moisturizer, or serum, and your face will have a fresh, beautiful glow.

    bottle of the serum next to a small puddle of it, showing the bronzy, shiny coloring

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that the skin on my face is as white as they come because I use Retin-A, which also makes me super sensitive. I picked this up on a whim at Sephora a few days ago because let's face it, it's summer and I'm sick of my face not matching my body. I mixed this with three drops of my vitamin C serum when applied. I am pleasantly surprised with this color. The rest of my body is medium tan with yellow undertones. This serum is fabulous at matching with the rest of my body. Perfect amount of yellow and red to really give my face that sun-kissed summer glow without looking muddy. I am so thrilled with this product!" —khgreer

    Get it from Sephora for $36, and a highly-rated vitamin C serum from Amazon for $19.99.

    12. Biossance's Squalane and Vitamin C Rose Oil delivers a super douse of hydration that your skin will love. This serum is designed to brighten, firm *and* hydrate — and this might just become a new favorite in your skincare routine.

    bottles of the oil styled on table

    Promising review: "I was dealing with so many breakouts, scars, and blotchy skin from pregnancy and was miserable. Then I got a sample of this stuff. I didn’t change anything else in my skin care routine besides putting this on with sunscreen in the morning. My skin is literally glowing! My acne cleared up, the scars are disappearing, and my skin is so smooth! I was so amazed that I bought a full sized bottle. I’m hooked!" —Jill

    Get it on sale from Biossance for $72.

    13. Oribe's Texturizing Spray gives you volume on volume on volume, and helps with oily roots making it great for the mornings when there's just no time for a shower — which is me, like every day.

    can of the hairspray styled with a brush

    Promising review: "Hands down the BEST product I have ever purchased. IN. MY. LIFE! I have super thin, fine hair and have always searched for something to make my hair look semi-normal...this is it! I recently cut my hair in a medium bob with beachy waves (that style that only looks good if you have thick, beautiful hair). After curling, I spray a generous amount all through my hair and brush it out. My hair looks like it has tripled in volume and it lasts all day long. It's not super touchable soft, but definitely better than hair spray." —JayKHN

    Get it from Amazon for $23+ (available in two sizes).

    14. Supergoop!'s Broad Spectrum 40 SPF Sunscreen is a weightless formula that protects your skin (specifically from UVA, UVB, infrared, and blue light) *while* keeping your makeup on. It's basically a dream in a bottle.

    bottle of the sunscreen

    Reapplication is key, people! If you're out and about in the sun, you should reapply some type of sunscreen every two hours. While this product goes under your skin, Supergoop! has sprays that are great to use after you've applied your makeup, but more to come on that (in like one second, it's literally the next product)!

    Promising review: "This is it. This is the perfect sunscreen. Supergoop has done it. I'm calling it now that Unseen Sunscreen has just broken the final barrier of sunblock for all of us. A sunblock with strong SPF, that does NOT 1) make you pale/chalky, 2) make you super greasy/shiny, and 3) sit stickily on your skin and visibly in photos. Not only does it not do the above, which I NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE, it also comes with antioxidants and good stuff for the skin. It applies feeling EXACTLY like a primer, almost immediately feels invisible from the skin, gives a vague velvety blurring effect, and accepts makeup well. Thank you, Supergoop. I'm in my late 20s, and it has never been more important to remember daily sunblock. With this, I know I will." —MsFourEyes

    Get it from Sephora for $34.

    15. Act + Acre's Cold Processed Hair Cleanse removes residue from the scalp to balance moisture. Its plant-derived formula helps prevent skin irritation so all you'll be walking away with is one happy noggin.

    Act + Acre

    Act + Acre is a woman-owned biz based out of New York, NY committed to creating sustainable beauty products. Their ingredients are internationally-sourced and locally made, the external packaging is 100% recyclable, and the bottles are "produced with the most recyclable form of plastic".

    Promising review: "Finally, hair care that tends to my dry scalp while also adding life back into my sad hair! Somehow the shampoo manages to be clarifying and nourishing at the same time. Life is coming back to my hair — my natural wave is more pronounced, my hair is voluminous and soft. I am truly blown away. The conditioner is very balanced and doesn’t seem to leave a heavy residue like so many conditioners do. If you currently use products with sulfates and silicones, your hair might go through a transition period, but it’s so worth it :)." —Dolce S.

    Get it from Act + Acre for $28.

    16. Glamlite's Ice Cream Dream Palette comes in the most darling ice cream truck packaging (yes, yes, and yes) and offers up so many funky colors, you'll have tons of looks to experiment with.

    Glamlite Cosmetics

    Glamlite Cosmetics is a Latinx woman-owned company from Los Angeles dreaming up the most playful, high-quality makeup goodies. Here you can find an array of makeup sweets and bundles.

    Promising review: "This palette is literally the most gorgeous palette i have ever seen. The shimmers are so buttery soft and the pigmentation is off the hook. Definitely recommend." —Jennifer Collins

    Get it from Glamlite Cosmetics for $45.

    17. Fresh's Soy Face Cleanser gently washes and (AND!) removes makeup without completely drying out your face. It's great for daily use, all skin types, and will keep you feeling hydrated instead of like a peeling snake.

    bottle of the soy face cleanser

    I got a mini sample of this as my Sephora birthday gift one year and I've never had anything make my skin feel so smooth. I am not even kidding you, the cleanser itself feels like liquid silk so by the time you're done washing, your face feels softer than ever. I totally get why the biggest bottle of this sells for $42 a pop.

    Promising review: "This is the best cleanser I have ever tried. I always try new products and almost never buy the same product twice but I've bought the soy cleanser five times! It gets off all of your eye makeup without scrubbing and is perfect for sensitive skin. If you are prone to clogged pores or dullness, you may need to alternate this cleanser with an exfoliating one." —Costumista

    Get it from Sephora (available in three sizes) or Nordstrom (available in two sizes) for $15+.

    18. Laura Mercier's Caviar Sticks are creamy eyeshadows that glide on the eyelids to create a long-lasting shimmery or matte look. They're magic in a tube, is basically what I am saying.,

    Promising review: "Laura Mercier knocked it out of the park with this one. Application is so easy and flawless, but leaves you with a beautiful finish and put together look. I like to apply this directly from the stick along my upper lash line and work my way up a bit onto the lid, but not completely covering it with product. Then I get a blending brush and blend the product all over my lid, and then drag the brush back and forth over the crease. The result is a soft, iridescent wash of colour. Absolutely gorgeous, and you can't go wrong with any of the shades." —goodnightluck

    Get it from Sephora for $29 (available in 25 shades).

    19. Smashbox's best-selling Photo Finish Primer blurs pores, locks in makeup, and evens out skin so your foundation goes on flawlessly (and stays there). Its lightweight, oil-free formula is packed with antioxidants so it will ALSO protect from pollutants — and what more could you ask for?!

    bottle of primer squirting out the primer onto table

    Promising review: "I've worn this for yeeeeeeeears. I can't live without it. I tried another primer, once, recommended by some actress's makeup artist, and I didn't like it nearly as much. This makes your skin feel like velvet, and if you're like me with a natural redness to your skin, this totally cancels that out. This is a staple in my makeup collection." —jetset101

    Get it from Sephora for $15+ (available in three sizes).

    20. Olaplex Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner are a super hydrating duo that can repair dry and damaged hair by re-linking broken bonds.

    bottles of both shampoo and conditioner next to each other on sand

    Promising review: "I've been using this whole system for about four or five months and I'm thrilled with the results. I have coarse, curly hair that I typically blow out, and this line has made it so much softer and more manageable. Unlike deep conditioning products that just coat the hair, I feel like these have made my hair healthier from the inside out. It's more expensive than your average shampoo, but a little goes a long way so I don't go through it as quickly as others." —broadwaylife

    Get the shampoo and conditioner from Sephora for $14+/each (available in two sizes).

    21. IT Cosmetics Confidence Gel Lotion takes moisturizers to an entirely new level with a cactus flower extract and glycerin (known to retain moisture) formula. It's oil-free and can provide hydration up to 72 hours!

    bottle of the gel lotion on what looks like a water reflection background

    Promising review: "This is the first product I have used from IT Cosmetics and I'm hooked. It glides on your face so smoothly and lasts all day! It feels soft and silky on your skin and is fabulous under your daily makeup or foundation. I felt younger looking and my skin felt super-hydrated. I highly recommend this for any skin type." —Marley0727

    Get it from Sephora for $36.

    22. Lancôme's Définicils Mascara lengthens and defines lashes with a few flicks of the wrist for a fuller look that still appears super natural.,

    Promising review: "I have used Definicils Mascara for over 10 years now, and it just cannot be beat. I have tried other types of mascara now and then just to compare, and I always come back to Definicils. It separates and lengthens your lashes with absolutely NO clumping or smearing. I can even sleep in it, and with just a touch up the next morning, I am good to go for another day! Amazing! Lashes look so long that I have been asked on several different occasions if I am wearing false lashes. Don't waste your money on other mascaras — get the very best: Lancome Definicils!" —vafringe

    Get it from Sephora or Nordstrom for $27.50 (available in three colors).

    23. Dr. Jart+'s Ceramidin Cream is heaven for sensitive combination skin, and that claim truly holds up considering my coworker raves about this moisturizer! It keeps your face hydrated, shine-free, and with a glorious matte finish from sunrise to sunset.

    tubes of the cream styled on a blanket and pillow

    "I can tell you that I have seen a significant difference in my skin since I started using this cream two months ago. When I bought it, I was in the midst of a cold, and I had the very fetching nostril dryness that accompanies excessive nose-blowing. After two days of twice-daily application, all trace of dryness had vanished. This stuff also claims to 'alleviate signs of sensitivity,' which, as a skin sensie, I can corroborate. I haven't seen a trace of the garden of little red patches that used to bloom all over my face when I lotioned up." —Jessie Gaynor

    24. simplehuman's Sensor Mirror detects your face and lights up automatically while simulating natural sunlight. It also features 5x magnification and truly, what can this mirror NOT DO?

    mirror lit up and styled on a vanity

    BTW, I own this and use it every day. It's worth every! single! penny!

    Promising review: "I was very happy to find out simplehuman offers this mirror. I prefer it over the other (wireless) sensor mirrors after reading countless reviews about the charger malfunctioning. The 5x magnification is perfect, I can see stray brow hairs without my contacts and there is enough space between the mirror and my face in focus and full-view for makeup application. Brightness isn’t adjustable but is perfect, not too bright that it will hurt your eyes and bright enough for blending foundation and concealers so they look seamless. And at $150, I think it’s reasonable given the quality." —C

    Get it from simplehuman for $150 (available in other models/styles).

    25. A powerful steamer – it basically brings the fancy spa straight to your home. Now you can lure those pesky blackheads out without having to pay for an expensive facial.,

    It lasts for 12 minutes at a time and even features a UV light to sterilize the steam! It also comes with a blackhead extraction kit, but just be careful and watch some tutorials before you go to town on your skin.

    Promising review: "This is almost a life changer. I always steam my face in the shower so I can pop my pimples (I know, it sounds so gross but seriously). However, this steamer is AMAZING. I highly recommend it if you are suffering from acne and want to give yourself your own DIY facial. Overall, fabulous purchase." —Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+.

    26. First Aid Beauty's Coconut Water Cream takes the wonders of actual coconut water to create a hydrating moisturizer that's rich in electrolytes and oil-free — so it's basically heaven for your skin.

    cream styled inside a coconut

    Promising review: "Really loving this moisturizer! It soaks into my skin so quickly in comparison to other moisturizers. It doesn't leave a film of lotion on your skin or residue, but I still feel very hydrated. Easy to begin makeup routine shortly after application and doesn't interfere with other products. It's more like a water gel than a lotion. Not a super strong moisturizer, would be better for summer, not dry winter air. smells heavenly!" —civilwarcamp

    Get it from Sephora for $34.

    27. Moroccanoil's Dry Shampoo proves that miracles still happen every day — or days after your last shower ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. It's formulated with ultra-fine starch for absorbing excess oil so your hair feels refreshed and cleansed.

    Instagram: @moroccanoil

    Promising review: "When I say I've tried every high-end and drug store dry shampoo on the market — I mean that I. Have. Tried. Every. Dry. Shampoo. On. The. Market. I'm not a fan of the price of this one, but I always find myself going back to it because it's seriously the best I've used. It's one of the few dry shampoos that don't leave a white residue in my hair or leave my hair feeling stiff and tacky. If you have the money, it's worth the splurge." —xojenn

    Get it from Sephora for $10.50+ (available in two sizes and two tones: dark and light).

    28. Too Faced's Natural Face Palette features two bronzers, two blushes, and two highlighters — all gorgeous buildable shades. Because it comes with so many ~options~, you can easily change up your look with a few swipes of a brush.

    palette opened up and styled on table

    Promising review: "Absolute perfection!! I use this palette and almost every color in here every single day. I’ll mix both the bronzers and then the blushes, and top it all off with the highlighter. The bottom left highlight is this beautiful peach champagne color that is very similar to Becca’s Champagne Pop. Overall, I am just thrilled about this palette and will be taking this with me for travel as it has everything I need! Love love love it. I believe it’s universally flattering on every skin tone. Try it out. You won’t regret it!" —franneh

    Get it from Sephora for $44.

    29. Ornami's "Let That Mango" Body Butter provides a dose of hydration your skin is probably begging for since the cold weather set in. And with a name like this, you'll also get a dose of advice. ;)

    jar that says "let that mango"

    Ornami is a Black woman-owned business that offers 100% natural and toxin-free products.

    Promising review: "At first I thought it was going to be greasy, but after rubbing it in it is so smooth and moisturizing, and doesn't leave a greasy sheen at all. I have very sensitive skin, and this has been not at all irritating while still having a really nice fruity smell. Love it!" —Magdalene P.

    Get it from Ornami for $26.

    30. Estée Lauder's Double Wear Foundation comes in 42 (!!!) shades, provides 24-hour coverage, goes on matte, and will most likely become your forever go-to.

    model swatching different tones of foundation on arm

    Promising review: "I needed something long wearing for the winter, so I bought this. I have never tried a full-coverage foundation that actually lasts as long as it claims, but this did! I sweated like a pig with this on and it didn't budge. I have very dry skin, and because this is a matte finish I was afraid it would cling to my dry patches, but it didn't. In fact, it was pretty moisturizing. I can build it up and it doesn't get cake-y at all. The color matches me perfectly, too. I am SUPER picky about my foundations, but I don't have one bad thing to say about this. In fact, this is the only foundation I have ever tried that I can say that about. A little goes a long way, so it will last forever. Well worth the money!" —MLWhite

    Get it from Sephora or Nordstrom for $43 (available in 42 shades).

    31. Glossier's Haloscope Highlighter creates a stunning dewy effect on the skin thanks to its outer halo of crystal extracts (um, YES please) and vitamin-rich solid core.

    Promising review: "Haloscope is fantastic. I use it on my nose, cupid's bow, eyelids, brow bone and cheekbones. It offers the perfect amount of dewy highlight that's not glittery. It's also super easy to apply and blends very well." —AO

    Get it from Glossier for $22 (available in three shades).

    32. Function of Beauty's customizable shampoo and conditioner is formulated ~just~ for you. Seriously, you create a profile based on your hair needs and they send you a beautiful set to match.,

    OK, the packaging and product itself is — no duh — stunning, so I was slightly worried that my thoughts on this would be swayed simply from how freakin' gorgeous it looks. Thank god I was wrong! I was immediately impressed *just* from the smell, which I got to pick out when I was building my profile. I have a dry scalp (booooo) but I have yet to endure a flaky breakout since I started using this. Plus, I can go days, DAYS PEOPLE, without needing to wash my hair. I don't get how, or why, or how but this shampoo and conditioner has done wonders for my hair. And a lovely bonus: it's toxin-, paraben-, sulfate-, and cruelty-free.

    Get a shampoo and conditioner set from Function of Beauty for $39.99+ (available in two sizes).

    33. Briogeo's Scalp Revival soothes scalp itchiness and banishes flakiness because it's made with cooling peppermint, tea tree, and spearmint oils. It's like a cold, hydrating drink of water but for your head.

    bottle of the conditioner styled on ice block

    Promising review: "This is magic in a bottle. As someone who suffers from an itchy and dry scalp, I'm constantly looking for anything refreshing and minty. However, I noticed that those products usually dry my hair out so there's never a win-win. With this conditioner, I definitely found the win / win I was looking for. My scalp is refreshed and my hair is moisturized. LOVE LOVE LOVE." —chasingdenisse

    Get it from Sephora for $36.

    34. Giorgio Armani Beauty's Lip Maestro collection features tons of gorgeous lip stains that leave behind a velvet matte finish so you can feel just as vibrant as these stunning shades.,

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to purchase one due to the steep price, but I had such bad luck just about every other brand out there. They were too drying and uncomfortable. This one by GA is superb, it is so smooth yet opaque and matte and absolutely non drying." —yadira23

    Get it from Sephora (available in 30 shades) or Nordstrom (22 shades) for $38.

    35. And finally, Glow Recipe's Watermelon Sleeping Mask has a cult following and for a good reason — it's an easy-to-use oil-free formula you apply right before bed that seeps into your skin over night. By the time you wake up, you have baby-smooth skin.

    Promising review: "I did not want to like this. I really didn't. It's pricey, I already have more skincare than I need, yada yada. Needless to say, I failed my mission and I love it. I ordered the mini version to try it out, and now I'm impatiently waiting on a VIB sale to purchase the bigger jar. It smells like heaven. Delicious heaven that you kind of want to eat but I'm guessing you probably shouldn't. If you don't like the smell of watermelon, this obviously isn't going to be your cup of tea. As for application, it glides onto the skin like a dream. Stays on overnight (somehow? witchcraft, maybe?). I wash it off in the morning and my skin is supple and hydrated and ready for all the other products I'm going to pile on it. I'm eyeing the moisturizer now..." —MerMarie
