Promising review: "This eyeshadow is lovely! The color intensity is easily adjusted by how much you dab on. It goes on smoothly and easily and really does last absolutely all day with no powdery eyeshadow falling under your eyes/on your face throughout the day. It’s subtle yet enhancing. I love it!" —Reenie

The green handle-less mug shaped like The Child
Amazon

Promising review: "OK Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) is cute enough to be a Lovely Tiki mug, but this one just make it beyond my expectations, detail hand painting, different color inside the mug, a real treat for tiki culture or Star Wars fans looking for a nice cocktail in Mos Eisley cantina, big enough for a Iced Rusty Nail or any glass-size poison" —G. Salvador

Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

8. A ~limited release~ cyprus-scented candle to keep you calm during that most exasperating of times — when Mercury is in retrograde. Which is, uh, ::checks calendar:: right now.

Promising review: "Excellent sound quality and easily to pair with many devices. I have four other pairs of earbuds and these are the best I have found. I use earbuds every night to listen to movies on TV so as not to disturb the wife while she sleeps. These are fantastic for that. I also use them during the day to listen to music while walking or biking. The best earbuds at an incredible value. Everyone who needs earbuds should have at least a pair of these in there possession. Awesome quality in the best earbuds I have found online!" —Michael1

Promising review: "I've been wanting to get some cordless wireless headphones for a long time that were affordable. Decided to go with these and they were honestly worth the money. The bass is great and the sound is clear. Everyone should pick one up; they are amazing!" —Linda

Promising review: "I love this portable charger! I didn’t think it would be a good idea, because normally your portable chargers die within the first charge it does. I have charged my phone over four times and haven’t had to charge it! That is including just leaving it in my bag for weeks until I need it again. It will not disappoint! I love it!" —MacMak

The plaid scarf in black with red and white accents
Amazon

Promising review: "Looks just like the pictures. Beautiful color and super soft, like cashmere on your skin, which I love. It's medium-heavyweight so not too heavy and annoying and not too light where you would still be cold. Love this scarf and I have one in the neutral colors as well. Glad I purchased them and I can't believe I got them for under $10, great purchase." —Rhonda H.

Get it from Amazon for $12.98 (available in 26 colors).

Get it from Amazon for $11.69.

14. A pair of cushiony inserts that'll transform any pair of shoes into Uggs.

The insoles
Amazon

Promising review: "Move from slippers to loafers to boots — cannot be without. Just bought a second pair and will probably get a third pair. I use them in my Ara loafers and sneakers, my well-worn Ugg slippers and boots, anytime I want to feel dreamy, soft comfort. They can be trimmed if needed, you know; and you can remove the existing insole to use as a pattern." —Frozenaddict

Get them from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in women's sizes 5–12). They're also available in men's sizes 7–15 for $19.95+.

The mask tightens as it dries on your face, giving you the titular "zombie" effect. Just wait 15 minutes and rinse to reveal your glowiest glow yet, thanks to the albumin (aka egg white) and aloe formula.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I've used Hanacure for a while but they are so expensive. I just can't bring myself to buy them anymore. I ran across these and was so excited to try them! It does have a funky smell (reminds me of perm solution) but they worked excellent. My skin was very soft afterwards, and my pores looked way smaller. I see absolutely no difference in the effects of this mask and Hanacure. The only difference is the huge price tag Hanacure carries. Definitely worth the money!" —K. Bell

Promising review: "Everyone needs to buy Zombie Masks! I will be buying this again and again! I have very oily and acne prone skin. I have tried EVERYTHING and nothing helps my skin. This instantly softened my skin, gave me an amazing glow, lightened my acne scars, and I haven’t had a pimple since using it." —Erin Marple

Get a box of eight masks from Amazon for $29.33.

16. A Good Advice Cupcake sticker you can pop right on your laptop, planner, journal, or wherever else you feel like, so you can think "mood" whenever you look at it in the middle of yet another chaotic workday.

17. A bar of quadruple-milled, shea butter–infused French ~savon~ to soften, rather than dry out, your skin — feel free to send your boring soap down the drain.

Amazon

Promising review: "I generally make my own soaps and body butters due to having extremely sensitive skin but I have completely fallen in love with this line. The lather is luxuriously ample yet gentle. The scent fills the bathroom but does not linger heavily on the body. It leaves my skin clean and soft — not dry as most bar soaps do. I highly recommend the Rose and Mirabelle scents. These bars are quadruple-milled so they do last a while." —NoIWontPutMyName

Get bars from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in 46 scents).

19. A lightweight and breathable sleep mask that won't weigh heavily on your nap plans. You might even forget you have this bb on, because reviewers note it's as soft as a T-shirt.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "This eye mask is fantastic! I love that it's cotton, so it's very comfortable and breathable. The back strap adjusts to fit your head so it stays put when you roll around at night, and there's a soft wire in the nose piece so that the mask can adjust to the shape of your nose to provide maximum blackout coverage. You can't beat the price for this eye mask — great quality and super comfy." —Paula

Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (also available in black).

20. A "Total Package" eight-brush set housed in a cute lavender pouch with everything you need to recreate all the stunning and colorful looks you've seen on TikTok — in the height of style.

Get it from BH Cosmetics for $14.50.

22. A sheet mask — FOR YOUR BUTT, because why should your face have all the fun? This bb'll moisturize and tone (hello aloe and chamomile), with one sheet for each cheek. 🍑

instagram.com, Amazon

They're available in four varieties:

* Slap It (pictured; retexturing & detoxifying with caffeine)

* Squeeze It (brightening & rejuvenating with citrus)

* Shake It (firming & illuminating with marine algae)

* Bite It (hydrating & toning with plant-based collagen)

Promising review (for "Bite it"): "I LOVED this mask. I was incredibly skeptical and figured it'd be more of a novelty mask. I was also sure that the mask would not be big enough to cover my curvy thicc butt. It's safe to say my expectations were low. Regardless I was blown away with the outcome. I'm so happy I purchased. I do have cellulite as well overly dry skin, as it's summertime I spend a lot of time in bikinis with my bottom showing and I just felt like a hydration recharge and a little life added back into my skin. I took a shower and when I got out I put the mask on and left it on longer than the recommended amount of time. I felt the end result visibly made my skin look hydrated as well as smooth. Not only that but I felt the next morning I could still visibly see the results so I was extra happy in my bikini that day. I know everyone's skin and shape is different so results will always vary but I can definitely say this booty mask is no gimmick, and extra kudos to this company for making a booty mask that covers big booties! Also side note: The packaging is adorable." —CC

Get them from Amazon for $11 each.

24. A Generation G lipstick that's vegan, sheer and matte, with dialed-down pigment to add some color to your lips, but in a way that gives off a casual look. Bonus! The powdered-type formula means it won't go anywhere, even under a face mask.

Glossier

Promising review: "This formula feels dry when it goes on, and typically that is not my jam. I like the creamy feel when lipstick goes on! BUT HEAR ME OUT. The dry vibe has actually become my favorite thing about it. I can put it on, go somewhere, put a mask on, and I don't end up with lipstick all over my mask/face. My skin hates everything, so when I wear other lipstick under a mask and it gets on my face I break out. This doesn't do that — it stays on my lips without drying my lips out like a long-wear would. Love."Jill

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

25. A set of cat gel roller pens that are a) stupid cute, b) work incredibly well, and c) waaay better than boring ol' pens.

The teal infuser in a cup of tea
Amazon

Promising review: "Got this as a present for my fiancé — so dang adorable! Fits a decent amount of loose leaf tea in it well, seals great to keep any little pieces from coming out, sits in any of our coffee cups easily, and looks so cute while brewing. The neck sticking out makes it very easy to take out of the cup after brewing, and it's dishwasher safe! An awesome present, he loves it! Came on time and in great shape, would buy from again." —Sabrina

Get it from Amazon for $16.75 (available in three colors).

30. A large sideways initial necklace you can pair with literally any outfit for a dainty but statement-making accent. I don't know how those two things go so well together, but they do.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "This necklace is more pretty in person. I love the large size of the letter pendant, chain length, and how it's attached to the chain to give it a offset angle once you put it on. It looks really trendy and personalized once you match it with a cute outfit." —Erin Delancy

Get it from Amazon for $8.63 (available in all 26 letters).

31. A pair of gold-plated safety pin earrings that are just plain cool. There's really no other way to put it!

instagram.com

Promising review: "I am thrilled with Torani's Pumpkin Pie SAUCE. I'm addicted to this particular flavor, and when I ran out of it for a few weeks I had to order a large one. I'll make sure never to run out again, because every morning I have a special treat when I drink my coffee. This actually tastes identical to the Dunkin' Donuts flavor that they only use during the autumn/Halloween time, but you have to remember to order the SAUCE, not the syrup. Big difference, I found." —Lizzy Tish

Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in eight sizes and 11 flavors).

33. Aaaand! a handheld milk foamer to give you café-quality lattes right in your kitchen. Saving money, drinking fancy — what is better than that??

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is the best thing since sliced bread! No need to spend a small fortune drinking lattes from overpriced venues. A bit of warmed milk, half and half, cream, or dairy substitute, and I am my own successful barista. It takes only a few minutes to create your highly valued, frothy latte. It takes the same or sometimes less amount of time to clean it. I am in love with this frother. No need to pay for multiple expensive attachments that you don’t need. Warm your dairy/nondairy source, add your spices, and froth away — light, heavy, just right. You make it your way, and for a lot less." —SMP

Get it from Amazon for $9.32+ (available in six colors).

34. A cleaning putty that will use its oh-so sticky powers to get in every nook and cranny of your ride to remove dust, dirt, and every McDonald's french fry crumb.

The candle
Target

Promising review: "I love all of these candles. They burn evenly and have amazing 'throw.' I don’t know who has rated them so poorly but don’t trust those reviews!!!! I’ve been buying these candles for a year directly from them and they are all so great. (Seriously, 20+ candles…) This is now the only candle I gift." —run17

Amazon

Brought to you in part by my current Vampire Diaries rewatch.

Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my friend who is a fantastic cook — she uses fresh ingredients almost exclusively — but pressing fresh garlic is a task usually delegated. No longer — Gracula is there for her. She uses him nearly every time she needs garlic (which is basically daily) and months later still makes a point of saying how much she enjoys the gift. I'm pretty sure she likes it better than other gifts I've gotten her which were more expensive/thought out, and I'm fairly certain it's what took me from 'good friend' to 'best friend,' but it be that way sometimes. Anyway, definitely recommended for people who cook with garlic and have a sense of humor." —L

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

40. A car vent dip clip so you can dip 👏 those 👏 fries 👏 without fumbling with the barbecue sauce and spilling it all over your car. May your commutes home be tolerable and filled with endless chicken nuggets.

Promising review: "Very useful! I love that the cup is removable so if you have one of those giant Chick-Fil-A ketchup cups, it can sit within the holder without the added cup, but a smaller sauce like from Wendy’s can sit inside the additional cup so it won’t fall through." —catherine

Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four sizes, and four colors).
