    1. An adorable Belif Winter Waterdrop Kit, a travel-friendly set of super hydrating products that'll leave the driest and tightest feeling skin feeling soft to the touch.

    The set includes:

    Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist

    Hungarian Water Essence

    The True Cream Aqua Bomb

    Moisturizing Eye Bomb

    Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask

    Promising review: "I’ve been interested in Belif products for a long time now, and I’m so happy I invested in this kit! My skin looks and feels better than ever. I normally don’t try new things since my skin is so sensitive to breakouts/allergic reactions, but these didn’t cause me any problems. Surprised by the cleanser — it feels nice and doesn’t strip the skin. And the Aqua Bomb, combined with the serum, is gold — the serum adds an extra hydrating boost while drying down weightlessly. Although I’m not seeing immediate changes with the eye cream, it’s a nice way to hydrate around and under the eyes. This kit is an excellent way to try their products, and I will be buying full sizes of some." —jazzyj25

    Get it from Sephora for $22 (valued at $48). And check out all other Belif products here!

    7. Unique two-toned lipsticks for a sexy but subtle satin-finish gradient lewk in just two swipes — be prepared to be called a ~trendsetter~.

    8. A set of hydrating essentials packed with six mini products that keep your skin plump and energized — the ultimate luxury skincare trials, shall we say.

    9. A tiger grass color correcting treatment (with SPF 30!) and cream that are holy grail products for people who deal with constant redness, acne flares, and uneven skin tone.

    10. A ~killer~ felt tip liquid eyeliner for possibly the most precise wing of one's life — it dries down to a matte finish almost straight away and its waterproof formula stays put all freaking day.

    11. A silky primer your pores legitimately have nightmares about — it glides over pores and instantly makes them vanish (because, quite frankly, they never stood a chance).

    12. A customizable lip palette that truly stuns from all angles — hello, beautiful metallic packaging and 10 pigmented, creamy, and layerable shades.

    You're looking fabulous as always, yes you are.
