    1. A curling wand guaranteed to give you blowout-status waves at a fraction of the price...and in your own home. This is what beauty on a budget looks like, and I LOVE IT.

    2. A Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser you can use on dry skin as a makeup remover, or on wet skin as a hydrating face wash. Either way, sorry to your other skincare products that'll never see the light of day after you bring this baby home.

    3. A silicone face mask "brush" to make application incredibly ~smooth~ (just like your radiant skin) and mess-free. It's actually just one soft, flexible piece of silicone — meaning you'll waste significantly less of your mask.

    4. And! A detoxifying clay mask that foams up for possibly the most hilariously satisfying spa session. It'll help reduce the appearance of blackheads *and* give ya a good laugh. What more could you want from a mask?!

    5. A cult-favorite mascara to add volume and length to your lashes with a few flicks of the wrist, making those minimal makeup days even easier.

    6. A super creamy concealer that comes in 30 shades so you can find the perfect one to complement your skin. It provides medium-to-full coverage and will keep you looking wide awake all day long.

    7. An Amazonian clay foundation (with SPF 15!) for balancing complexion and creating a flawless matte finish that won't cake or crease.

    8. A deep conditioning mask that'll revive dry hair with its argan oil, collagen, B vitamin, and rosehip oil formula. It's like a hydrating drink of water but for your head. *Ahhh.*

    9. A no-yellow shampoo to tone down unwanted yellow hues in blonde hair so your mane keeps the vibrant, natural color from your last salon visit — you know, which means less pricey touchups!

    Three reviewer photos showing the progression after one wash and then two. The after photos get progressively lighter and less yellowish.

    10. A pack of pimple patches for when you feel a zit (or ZITS) comin' on. Just apply over the bump and the patch will draw out sebum and reduce irritation like some type of skin sorcery. I mean, just look at these results. LOOK AT THEM!

    11. A pair of tweezers with suuuuuper pointy tips that can do it all: Remove blackheads, ingrown hairs, splinters, teeny hairs, ticks, and whatever else your skin could possibly throw at you.

    12. An all-natural de-frizzing set that comes with a smoothie cream, shampoo, and conditioner for thick and curly hair that'll reduce breakage and hydrate so your curls can live their best dang life, just like they should!

    13. A pretty in pink eyeshadow palette comparable to Huda Beauty's Rose Gold palette. It has 18 buttery shades, great staying power, and I can keep going on about how stunning this thing is!

    14. An anti-pollution and bronzing serum that 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.

    15. A Maybelline concealer featuring a sponge-tip applicator to cover up dark spots with total ease. Really, the sponge does most of the work for you — you just have to dab, dab, dab, and you're done.

    16. A popular translucent primer for instantly reducing the appearance of pores and ensuring your makeup lasts all day. It also protects your skin against pollution with help from antioxidants, vitamins A and E, and peptides.

    17. And! A miracle-working eyeshadow primer that'll make dang sure your perfectly blended smokey eye stays in its place from sunrise to sunset. Now you can finally say farewell to smudging, flaking, and creasing.

    Reviewer's before and after picture when using Elizabeth Mott's Thank Me Later primer. The after pic is taken 10 hours later, and the eyeshadow is in tact with no smudging or creasing.

    18. A tinted moisturizer with SPF 30 designed to provide you hydrating coverage for up to 12 hours *and* a dewy complexion. Yes to sun protection, WE LOVE.

    19. A Fenty Beauty Stunna lip paint that lasts up to 12 hours so you can *kiss* constant touchups GOODBYE. Not to mention the color range on this collection is stunning, and Ri Ri knew what she was doing when she named these lip paints.

    20. A self-tanning mousse to stock up *now* as the winter months approach and 12 hours of sunshine a day start to disappear. It's made with coffee seed extract, coconut, and pomegranate extract so it comes packed with antioxidants and goodness for your skin.

    21. A nail polish holder that simply slips on your finger and firmly holds the bottle so you can easily paint your nails. Just think, you could treat yourself to a mani/pedi in the car, or on a bus, or in the comfort of your own bed!

    22. An at-home eyebrow tint kit so you can achieve gorgeous, fuller-looking brows without having to leave the house. That's a win-win in my book!

    Reviewer's before and after photo after using the dye. The after results are noticeably darker eyebrows that look fuller.

    23. Machine-washable and reusable cloths that'll gently remove dirt and makeup from your skin with a splash of some water. Just toss in the washer after a few uses and start savin' your hard-earned dollars — no more expensive wipes here!

    24. A cult-favorite translucent setting powder because you shouldn't spend precious time making a fabulous look just for it to fade by mid day. This powder locks everything in and leaves behind a matte finish.

    25. An eyeshadow palette that'll create the perfect blend of gorgeous warm-toned colors. All of the shades (mattes and shimmers alike!) are infused with Amazonian clay to help prevent that dreaded chalkiness.

    26. A chrome highlighter for giving your cheeks a stunning sheen with just a swipe of a brush. It comes in four shades so you can find one that really accentuates your ~sparkle~.

    27. A dry shampoo POWDER (!!) so you can ditch the shower on late mornings and walk out the door with hair that *looks* like it just got a fresh wash. Hey, nobody has to know it's going on day three...or five.

    28. A jumbo eye pencil that doubles as both an eyeliner and eyeshadow, giving you the ability to create a variety looks. Plus, the soft tip and buttery formula makes blending an absolute dream!

    29. A "Goof Proof" brow pencil — your ~foolproof~ way to fill in your brows with minimal effort, even if you're not a professional makeup artist (sooo...most of us!). One side defines and fills while the other effortlessly blends — and that's it! Just like that, you're done.

    30. A manicure top coat because it is possible to get professional results at home, and this'll help you do it! It's quick-drying, creates a mani-approved shine, and seals in your polish so it L-A-S-T-S.

    31. A detangling brush that'll stop the painful snags and gently comb out knots so you can stop cringing every time you run a brush through your mane. No more of that awful hair-ripping sound. 🙏

    32. A suuuuuuuper duper small spatula made to get into the nooks and crannies of your best beauty products and remove every last drop. Oh, you ran out of your foundation? Now you're ~covered~.

    33. A double-sided eyeliner stamp that — are you ready for this — creates the perfect wing in mere minutes. Oof, these are not even close to being even, is a sentence you will never hear yourself say again.

    34. And a hydrating moisturizer that seriously feels like you dumped your head into a bucket of soft, silky water — if that's even a thing. It's truly heaven-sent for overly dry, flaky skin.
