    1. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless After Sun Gel Lotion wraps sunburnt skin in a coconut-and-papaya-scented cocoon, so it gets the proper protection and care that it should've gotten pre-burn. Peeling? Don't know her.

    2. Coco & Eve Like a Virgin Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque is used to being met with gasps of astonishment — it magically reverses signs of heat and styling damage, so you're only left with extremely shiny, touchable, knot-and-fray-free strands. Drink up, hair!

    3. Flesh Beauty Swipe Flesh Lip Color looks like a thumbprint reader that unlocks the secret to flawless makeup — so, pretty darn cool — and it smoothly deposits *bold* pigment that actually feels comfortable (bye, drying mattes!), plus you can easily control the intensity of the shade with your fingers or brush.

    4. Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder follows the footsteps of Hourglass's cult-status Veil Mineral Primer and seals in all of your makeup handiwork for the whole day, not that you'd be able to detect it — the only effect you see is a luminous, silky glow made possible by diamond powder.

    5. BareMinerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow + Primer in "Woke" imparts a touch of vibrant orange *in addition* to ensuring your eye makeup stays put and gorgeous all day long — we love a multitasker, yes we do!

    6. Peach & Lily Matcha Pudding Antioxidant Cream helps bear some of the burden of everyday stress and pollution, so you can live your life knowing your skin is protected by a crazy hydrating and protective layer that feels weightless, but is packed with supercharged antioxidants like matcha.

    7. Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter in "Ray of Light" (pictured in the center of the lineup below) lends you that ~lit from within~ glow everyone covets without going totally disco-ball-overkill, so you can be a ✨rose gold vision✨ every single day.
