    1. Frank Body Shimmer Scrub will make you feel like a damn unicorn as you exfoliate your way to skin (and a life) bettered by coffee-scented glitter.

    Frank Body,

    I'm not saying this is the key to happiness, but I'm not denying it either.

    Get it from Frank Body for $19.95 or Urban Outfitters for $20.

    2. Also up the alley of magical creatures, Saucebox Mertail Vanity Brushes put your human flippers to good use too.

    @sauceboxcosmetics / Via, @sauceboxcosmetics / Via

    These babies will be just as much a part of your...morning routine as your...Starbucks cup. Two lame mermaid references in one, I win.

    Promising review: "This mertail brush is so pretty, a great size, and easy to hold and use. The bristles are soft and fluffy, yet firm enough to pick up a good amount of product." —Pembe V.

    Get them from Saucebox for $10.99 each — the blue brush here and the gold brush here.

    3. Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is the highly-anticipated collaboration with the social media maven, cooking extraordinaire, and cool mom everyone's 😍 about.

    @beccacosmetics / Via, @beccacosmetics / Via, UNGANO + AGRIODIMAS STUDIO / Via

    It includes three new shades — Sunlit Bronzer in Malibu Soleil, Pressed Highlighter in Beach Nectar, and Luminous Blush in Hibiscus Bloom — as well as Pressed Highlighter in Rose Gold, a favorite of Chrissy's.

    In an interview with WWD, Chrissy said "when you’re feeling like you have no energy and not a single color pigment in you, that’s what these colors do for you.”

    Get it from Sephora or Becca Cosmetics for $46.

    4. 100% of net proceeds from sales of Philosophy Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion will be donated to the Hope & Grace Fund in honor of National Mental Health Month (May).

    @lovephilosophy / Via

    This is an awesome partnership between Hope & Grace Initiative and Project 1 in 4 to support community-based mental health efforts and erase ongoing stigma surrounding mental health and finding help.

    Promising review (for the permanent version): "I have been using this for several years. Every single time I go out I get people asking me what lotion/perfume I'm wearing. I have recommended Amazing Grace to literally hundreds of people. I really should be a PR person for Philosophy. I know of at least 42 people who have bought this because I told them about it. I am very sensitive to scents, but this is so light and fresh/clean-smelling and it moisturizes so well. I love it." —Beci

    Get it from Philosophy for $37.

    5. Nars x Charlotte Gainsbourg gives you that coveted British-French girl glow that can only be perfected by being in the spotlight your whole life., @narsissist / Via, @narsissist / Via

    Promising review (for Multiple Tint in Alice): "Please put these new Multiples into your permanent collection. Alice is a lovely, clear pure red, not too bright or deep. It looks bright in the twist-up tube and even tested bright on my hand, but it's very wearable and natural in real life. It's just enough color without being garish. Love it, and I will be buying the berry shade (Jeanette) next." —East Village Siren

    Shop the entire collection at Nars or Sephora — the Hydrating Glow Tint from Nars for $36 (four shades) and eyeshadow duo from Sephora for $36 (two varieties).

    6. Sephora Give Me Some Nude Lip clocks in at one full-size and five sample-sized lippies for an array of fresh-faced MLBB looks.

    Basically a dream for indecisive folks who want every lipstick ever (it's not just me, right?).

    Promising review: "TBH, I wasn't expecting to like this. I'm so picky. I just wanted the Anastasia and Urban Decay. Felt like that was worth the $28 and would give the rest away...but no! Omg, love them all. Nars feels so silky. Tarte is so sexy. All colors are different shades of nude so you will use them all. Could also be a great gift! I'm a mid-deep brown girl w/ red undertones and these colors look amazing on me." —Lauvely

    Get it from Sephora for $28.

    7. Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection embodies the iconic artist's explosive use of colors and mediums to express his opinions on social injustice.

    @urbandecaycosmetics / Via, Stylecologist / Via

    Promising review: "Urban Decay STEPPED UP their game with this collection! I didn't think it was possible, but oh my goodness! I bought both eyeshadow palettes, all three liners, and a lipstick and they are AMAZING! The formulation in the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils literally mimics Marc Jacob's Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner! These are crazy smooth and pigmented! And the palettes...just wow! Usually companies cheapen their formulation with a collab, but UD makes their shadows even better! The palettes mimic artwork ready to be hung on the wall — so cool and innovative. Everything about this collection is fab!" —Tanya Feifel

    Get the collection from Sephora for $17-39.

    8. BH x Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition has 21 eyeshadows and highlighters that cover an array of everyday-chic pink/gold/bronze shades.

    @pranavabeauty / Via,

    Promising review: "I loved Carli's first palette (so much that I bought two!) for its neutral tones and the mixture of eyeshadows and highlight. I was very surprised at the incredible quality, pigmentation, and longevity! It feels and wears like a high-end product. For her new Deluxe Edition palette it's the same case — beautiful shades that are creamy and pigmented. I'm LOVING the pink and rose gold shades. I will honestly continue to purchase anything BH puts out as a part of Carli's collection." —Heather

    Get it from BH Cosmetics for $19.50.

    9. The Lorac Pirates of the Caribbean collaboration is a legit treasure trove of eye, cheek, and lip products.

    @loraccosmetics / Via

    Promising review (for the eyeshadow palette): "This palette is amazing — super silky shadows and beautiful colors. Good variety to go mild or wild with! Love it and the cheek/ highlight palette slides into the side of this shadow box — so handy and fun!!" —Sarcasmashay

    Shop the collection at Ulta and Kohl's for $26-52.

    10. Pat McGrath Dark Star 006 fulfills your dreams (that you might not have realized you even had) of becoming an intergalactic makeup star.

    @sephora / Via, @patmcgrathreal / Via

    Each kit comes with either UltraSuede Brown or Ultraviolet Blue Pigment, Astral White, Mercury, Dark Matter Pigment (fyi, that's all one item), Cyber Eye Gloss, Black SmudgeLiner Eye Khol, and a blender brush.

    Promising review: "I've been obsessed with Pat McGrath since I first saw Naomi Campbell's red glitter lip. I always thought her products looked so cool and then she came out with the dark star kit and it literally screamed my name. Pigmentation is great. Overall packaging with the sequins is so fun/unique. And if you divide the price, you're only paying $18 per product. Most high-end products sold separately cost more than that. So 11/10 for me, would definitely recommend. —Nayyyyy

    Get it from Sephora for $130.

    11. Did you think we were done talking about unicorns? Never. Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Collection has ethereal packaging, pigment, fluffy brushes, and more. Just buy it now.,,

    Promising review (for the brush set): ""I'll be honest — I only bought these because of the cute packaging and the unicorn theme, but I was blown away at how soft and high quality these brushes really are. I want to order a second set so I can use one big pink brush for highlighting and bronzing and another for setting loose powder under the eyes." —Ameliamndz

    Shop the entire collection at Tarte or Sephora for $20-40, including the brush set, eye and cheek palette, mascara, rainbow highlighter, and rose gold eyeliner.

    12. Beauty Bakerie x Gabby Douglas Lip Whips Set includes your classic blue-based red, two spring-y pinks, a gorgeous deep plum, and a show-stopping metallic copper.

    *absorbs all of Gabby Douglas' gold medal work ethic*

    Get it from Beauty Bakerie for $80.

    13. Peter Thomas Roth Facial On The Go Kit will not take "traveling for work" or "too busy" as a valid excuse for ignoring the well-being of your skin.

    The set is recommended for normal skin types and includes: the Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel ($38+), Cucumber De-tox Bouncy Hydrating Gel ($48), Firmx Peeling Gel ($48), and Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator ($52).

    Get it from Sephora for $22.

    14. Travel-sized Prada Candy Lipstick Perfumes indulge your sweet tooth wherever you go.

    @sephora / Via,

    *cues Aaron Carter's "I Want Candy"*

    Get Kiss, Florale, and Candy from Sephora for $38 each.

    15. Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder comes with four translucent color-correcting powders in crisp pie chart format for a light-as-air dusting to set your face.

    Get it from Sephora for $58.

    Givenchy also has a limited-edition berry Le Rouge lipstick, which you can buy on Sephora for $38.

    16. More makeup math! Kind of. The Sephora Mixology Palette takes the guesswork out of pairing colors and presents you with six complementary trios for endless looks.

    Promising review: "This palette is awesome! It's great if you're like me and aren't the best at picking out which colors to put together. The shadows are really pigmented and apply very easily, and the brush is literally the best out of all the brushes I own — it can blend like no other! The large mirror is a plus because now when I travel I don't have to pack a mirror! I've only had it for a week but there's so many possibilities with this palette." —Rachel D.

    Get it from Sephora for $34.

    17. Dyson Special Edition Supersonic Hair Dryer Set has a super small but mighty motor that'll slice your drying time down to a few minutes — and it comes with a chic pink travel tote.

    @dysonhair / Via,

    Promising review: "This dryer is life-changing; I went from 20 minutes down to four minutes for drying my hair. With a newborn on the way, those 16 minutes are going to make a huge difference in my day-to-day life. And it's not as burdensome to hold as other hair dryers either because it's so light. As with any heat-styling product, just use a good heat protecting/conditioning spray. Save up for this if you have to — it's worth it." —Wisc123

    Get it from Sephora for $399.

    18. Pür Bronze Your Selfie Liquid Bronzer understands your ongoing struggle to capture the perfect Instagram selfie and will help create a radiant glow that will attract likes by the second.

    Promising review: "This took my legs from pale to spring BBQ ready. I was no longer pasty and instead had a gorgeous bronzed glow. Super easy to apply! I used the Skin Perfecting Foundation Brush and it blended like a dream. 10 out of 10 recommend." —bdhobbs

    Get it from Pür Cosmetics for $26.

    19. The products in the Milk Desk To Dawn Set will both touch up your day makeup and bolden them for nighttime prowling.

    The set includes: blotting sheets, micellar water wipes, eye pigment, red lip color, mascara, dry shampoo, gel brow, and an eyelash curler.

    Get it from Sephora for $68.

    20. Too Faced x Skinnydip London collaborated on a darling glittery makeup bag that you might even love more than the products inside.

    How can Clover (Too Faced's representative pup) NOT steal your heart?

    Get it from Too Faced for $20.
