1. A liquid eyeliner that will outlast any Sailor Scout's battle against the forces of evil.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $21.98.

Promising review: "I'll be super honest here: I essentially bought this for the novelty factor of being able to pretend my morning makeup routine was actually my magical transformation into Sailor Moon. But it turns out the makeup is also actually really good! It's very easy to use and great at making super-fine lines, which are two of my biggest troubles with liquid eyeliner. It also dries fast and lasts for a really long time. If I wear it with eye primer, it's indestructible: I've forgotten I was wearing it and gone to wash my face without any makeup remover, and it barely budged." —Elliana Barber

2. Ultra-matte liquid lipsticks to make your pout look extra magical in shades like Nagini, Spellbound, and Enchanted.

These waterproof colors won't smudge or fade — almost as if you cast an Impervius charm on them.

Get them from LA Splash for $14 each.

Several of the shades even have secondary names (for trademark reasons) like "Hermione," "Ginny," and "Ravenclaw."

3. A set of Tony Moly face masks that'll make you sing, "Gotta ~buy~ 'em all!"

Get a set of five from Amazon for $8.98.Promising review: "So cute and fun! I really love Tony Moly face masks, and I like the way that these face masks' effects and scents match the Pokémon (Squirtle is hydrating and lotus scent, Bulbasaur is green tea, Pikachu is honey, etc.). These are really nice to do at the end of a long day or on a day when you've really been putting your skin through the wringer. I have pretty reactive skin that is oily and prone to acne (I have an RX for it), and I think these face masks really help to keep it moisturized without making me break out. I'm also really pleased I bought this product from JOLSE: It's free shipping, although not Prime (which means I had to wait, as the product came from Korea), and they included little samples of other Tony Moly products. It was a nice touch and made me really happy." —Amazon Customer
