I only had to reapply seven hours later. This lipstick is the real deal, Holyfield." —Rubysinclair

    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

The quality is great, I haven't run into any issues and I've been using it daily (over a month now) along my jaw to help relieve tension, it's a lifesaver." —Kit's Picks

    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

    Bottle of Torani's Pumpkin Spice sauce next to slices of pumpkin pie

    Get it from Amazon for $13.94 (available in five sizes and seven flavors).

    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

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


    Get it from Amazon for $7.21 (available in black and silver).

    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

    36. A chili powder palette featuring 12 chili powders from around the world that'll ~spice your their life and the people of the world.~
