    1. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask contains a super hydrating hyaluronic acid and watermelon formula to brighten uneven skin tones and control excess oil from building up on your face.

    It's good for all skin types, but sensitive skin might not like the fragrance.

    Promising review: "I use this mask at night, so I apply a thin layer and sleep in the mask. It smells like watermelon candy, but not in an overwhelming or overly sugary way. It is silky smooth when applied and sinks in nicely. You do have to keep your face off your pillow for a bit while it really sinks in. In the morning I give my skin a quick rinse and it is noticeably brighter and looks smoother and refreshed. It also has gentle exfoliation which means that as you use it, it helps to keep your skin looking beautiful." —kmair

    Price: $22+ (sale price: $18.70+; available in two sizes)

    2. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner goes on so smoothly and with such precision, it might as well have been tattooed on.

    This is my go-to eyeliner! It's easy to use, stays on all day, and makes sharp, crisp wings.

    Promising review: "This liner is perfect if you want a flawless line or a sharp wing. The design of the brush is so flexible and feather-like." —emily234

    Price: $20 (sale price: $18; available in two colors)

    3. Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer offers a luminescent shine in only one shade that looks good on absolutely everyone.

    Consider this the Casper mattress of lip glosses! One shade (nude rose) looks good on everyone so you don't have to overthink it.

    Promising review: "I love it! Keeps my lips moisturized and that shine is second to none, can’t wait to see what else Rihanna comes out with!!" —PharaC

    Price: $18 (sale price: $15.30+)

    4. Or Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint also only comes in one universal shade and is equally loved.,

    Promising review: "AMAZING! I almost never use red lipstick because I feel that it doesn't match well with my skin tone and feel awkward. But this RED IS AMAZING! I love it! The packaging is really nice, and the applicator is REALLY GOOD, SO EASY TO APPLY!!! It does transfer but the color stays on your lips all night long!!! (but maybe don't use a scarf)." —RoxyPeru

    Price: $24 (sale price: $20.40+)

    5. Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara delivers on its promise of making your lashes look ginormous.

    Promising review: "This mascara does just what it says! I'm a mascara junkie and lately my problem with mascaras has been lack of holding curl. I was very happy that this one gave my lashes volume, length, rich pigment, AND held curl! After some hours, it has a tendency to transfer onto the skin just below my brows, which is why I didn't give it five stars, but I can live with that. Word of advice: Put two coats on, run a lash comb through, then apply a third coat all as quickly as possible without letting it dry. Works wonders!" —Vinn

    Price: $23 (sale price: $19.55+)

    6. Dr. Jart Shake and Shot Rubber Masks make your face as smooth as the baby face on the packaging.

    This may look like a super weird baby milkshake, but don't drink it! Instead use it to mix two ingredients together to make a rubber peeling mask. There are four types to choose from that deal with different needs: hydration, soothing, brightening, firming.

    Promising review: "Just finished trying the Hydro mask and I can confidently say it’s one of the best face masks I’ve ever used. I loved it so much that I’m definitely returning to Sephora this weekend to buy a few more. First, the packaging is just so cool that I couldn’t help but be intrigued by this product. Kudos, Dr. Jart+. Secondly, the whole process was so unique and fun! It’s goopy, and kind of reminds me of that slime you made in science class as a kid. I was amazed at how easily it peeled off all in one piece. Super neat and clean with no mess or hassle which is A+ for me! My face feels buttery soft and when I looked in the mirror, my jaw dropped because my super dry, dull winter skin instantly looked hydrated and healthy. I’m not exaggerating...usually I’m not blown away by face masks but my skin seriously looked 10 times better, so supple and smooth!" —jordoelizabeth

    Price: $12 (sale price: $10.20+; available in four types)

    7. Foreo Luna Mini 2 is a nonabrasive facial cleansing brush equipped with eight intensity settings that stays charged for up to 300 uses.

    Check out a full review (#7).

    Promising review: "It does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's easy to use, easy to clean, comfortable, waterproof, and holds a charge for a long time. I have sensitive skin and I find that the silicone is much gentler on my face than brush scrubbers. Plus, you don't need to buy any replacement heads like you do with the brush kind. I like the mini version because it still does what I need it to, but it's more compact. Basically, it's just a nice, simple, and well-designed tool." —LuckIndeed

    Price: $139 (sale price: $118.15+; available in six colors)

    8. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask locks in moisture overnight, so you can wake up with the luxuriously soft lips of your dreams.

    The thick balm smells like berries so you'll definitely have ~sweet~ dreams.

    See BuzzFeed's review for this lip mask (#2).

    Price: $20 (sale price: $17+)

    9. Tarte Twinkle Lighting palette gives you just the right amount of definition on your cheeks without being too overwhelming.

    Promising Review: "Very creamy and beautiful. It won't leave a huge streak of highlighter on your face. It's a very nice, natural, diffused glow that can easily be built up." —hollyybeee

    Price: $42 (sale price: $35.70+)

    10. Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette has all the base colors you need to mix and create a totally unique lip color that's all you., Anastasia Beverly Hills

    Read BuzzFeed's full review.

    Promising review: "I am in love! I hesitated before dragging the spatula through the first time because it's so pretty. The creams are very pigmented so a little goes a long way. It gives a nice creamy matte finish that feels nice on the lips. Also, I love playing around with the colors. Its a bit of splurge, but the value is actually good if you think about it because you don't need to buy another lipstick any time soon." —Allykm

    Price: $48 (sale price: $40.80+)

    11. Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette is a must-have if you love neutral eyeshadow shades.

    The palette comes with 14 shades in neutral to berry tones.

    Promising review: "The colors are super pigmented with little fallout, but I think it's better for brown eyes. The dark browns and reds just don't work as well with my light blue eyes. Still, I'm pleased with my purchase and would recommend it, given that I do still use the lighter colors." —FleekyChicChick

    Price: $42 (sale price: $35.70)

    12. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner — a duo with powerful formulas to gently cleanse, nourish, and hydrate your hair *without* weighing it down, keeping your hair cleaner and healthier looking for longer (meaning you won't have to wash it as often!).

    Promising review: "This duo saved my hair!! About a year ago, I noticed my hair was getting oily quickly....seriously, half a day after I washed my hair. No dry shampoo would work. I have fine hair, and used to be able to go three-four days in between washes so this was devastating to me. I was having to wash it every day, and it was ruining my color. After talking to a Sephora consultant, she mentioned that her manager had the exact same issue but was having huge success with this line! So I tried out the travel pack first, and noticed a huge change in just one-two weeks. Now, nine months later, I can go five-six days in between washes (with the help of the dry shampoo too, also amazing!). You don't need a lot; regular sized products last me about six months! I even love the design of the bottle; I love how the top is flat, so that it's easy to turn over and get all the last little bit out. :) 5/5 hands-down for me!! —MegDR

    Price: shampoo and conditioner for $26 each (sale price: $22.10)

    13. Peace Out Pore Treatment Strips absorb excess oil and dead skin with hydrocolloid acid to prevent tons of blackheads on your nose and cheeks. Plus you'll get to look at the evidence once you peel em' off.

    Promising review: "I’m always concerned when it comes to acne treatments because my skin is super sensitive, but after one night I was IMPRESSED. The nose strip destroyed a blackhead I had been trying to get rid of for months and cleared up the rest of my nose. Thank you Peace Out Skin Care for making my face smooth." —jsiqueiros

    Price: $19 (sale price: $16.15)

    14. Kat Von D Studded Kiss white matte lipstick smoothes and blends shades so you can make custom colors.

    Price: $19 (sale price: $16.15+)

    15. Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion will keep eye makeup poppin' and in place.

    Promising review: "I hated eyeshadow before getting this product. I have intensely oily lids so I really avoided using eyeshadow. But after doing a lot of research on YouTube, I realized a lot of people loved this product and they said it was amazing. I bought it during Christmas and I've never gone back. I go to hot, sweaty parties and whenever I look in the mirror, my eye masterpiece is still in place. I also think that it helps my shadows blend together better. The applicator is really nice, it applies the product nicely. I have deep-dark skin and it doesn't make my eyes look ashy. Overall, I think this product is a necessity to any makeup lover's kit." —mu5ings

    Price: $24 (sale price: $21.60+)

    16. Dior Lip Glow will be your new fave MLBBs — hello, sheer balms that leave your lips looking bright, luscious, and hydrated!

    Promising review: "I purchased it in pink and received exactly what I expected: a rather expensive but luxurious lip gloss. This is perfect for light makeup days or even for a pretty pout when you're not wearing makeup at all. Also, the packaging is very pleasing to the eye." —GradBeauty

    Price: $34 (sale price: $28.90+; available in 11 shades in three finishes: Matte, Satin, and Shimmer)

    17. Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial spits out a mask that over 500 Sephora customers have said left them with clearer, more radiant skin and an improved texture and tone.

    Promising review: "This is everything. My skin transformed after the first use. I️'m becoming a devoted user to the Drunk Elephant line because each product I’ve tried does exactly what it says it will do. Thank you for making amazing products!" —mayan2012

    Price: $80 (sale price: $68+)

    18. Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb is actually your skin's thirst-quenching truth — the ultra-lightweight gel-cream instantly cools and hydrates with a powerful but soothing blend of apothecary herbs.

    Promising review: "I have gone through many, many moisturizers on my way to this one, and this was the only one where I noticed a difference in my skin after ONE day. My skin was brighter and smoother and my pores were smaller. It absorbs into my skin very quickly and deeply hydrates without feeling like I have a layer of product on my face. I would also like to mention that I used to have oily skin but now I can say that I have closer to normal skin after consistently using this product." —phil0s0phie

    Price: $22+ (sale price: $19.80+; available in two sizes)

    19. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is a burning hot eyeshadow palette featuring warm, natural colors.

    Promising review: "This palette is simply gorgeous. Even the reddest shadows still manage to look good (though I must admit, I blend them with browns to avoid looking too red). It's warm and fun and the packaging is the best it's ever been on a Naked palette. Highly recommend!" —becmar

    Price: $54 (sale price: $45.90+)

    20. Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush can smooth hair without even trying, delivering shiny and frizz-free styles without drying out your strands.

    Check out BuzzFeed's review.

    Promising review: "I have slightly wavy (mostly straight) hair that’s on the fine side and I love this thing! I wash my hair before bed and then run this through in the morning and I’m all good! It makes my hair super shiny too." —null

    Price: $120 (sale price: $102+)

    21. Commodity 3x3 Exploration Kit is a much smarter purchase for people whose scent preferences change as often as their mood, given their full-sized candles and fragrances retail for $55 and $105.

    Promising review (for the Book fragrance): "This smells exactly like my late grandparents' home and garden in the Pacific Northwest. Dusty herbs, wood, and soft spice. I almost started crying from the nostalgia. It's a really unique gentle woodsy scent." —notabumblebee

    Price: $38 (sale price: $32.30+)

    22. Invisibobble Hair Ring holds up thick, thin, and curly hair without denting or tangling your strands because of its spiral shape.

    Promising review: "Wonderful little things! I have thick shoulder length hair and my hair doesn't slip out or fall down, and it doesn't leave any kinks. The best thing is no more headaches from having to tie my hair tie so tight to prevent it from falling!" —BeautybeginR

    Price: $8 (sale price: $6.80+; available in six colors)

    23. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara gives you intensely black coverage and sky-high volume for your lashes.

    Promising Review: "I love the dramatic effect of long, thick, volumized, and defined lashes. This makes my nonexistent short lashes pop up to my eyebrows with just a couple of coats. Usually, I use a mascara primer but with this product, I don't even need one to make it seem as if I have false lashes on." —DamnitsDina

    Price: $12+ (sale price: $10.80+; available in two sizes)

    24. Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 fixes almost every hair woe you're struggling with (burnt hair, color damage, etc.) so you can get those luscious locks back in business — all without taking out a loan for a salon visit.

    Crazily enough, this isn't even a conditioner — just a very intense repair kit that's usually exclusive to salons (typically you use this after over-bleaching and coloring, but it's also great for any kind of damage!). It relinks broken bonds in hair to provide structural repair.

    Promising review: "I have highlighted hair, and before Olaplex I had problems with breakage. Since using Olaplex, my hair is stronger and much healthier. I did take a short break, as I was trying to save money, and I totally saw the difference in my hair. I have now gone back to faithfully using it once a week, and my hair is back to being strong despite the coloring and use of heat on my hair. It is worth every penny!" —mapb

    Price: $28 (sale price: $23.80+)

    25. Sephora Collection Foot Mask is soaked in various active ingredients that'll refresh and soften rough areas on your soles.

    Promising review: "I've always had rough parts on my feet and had a few blisters on the back of my heels after breaking in new shoes a few days ago. This foot mask did work! My feet are so smooth right now and I can't stop touching them." —Kimberlyyy44

    Price: $5 (sale price: $4.25+; available in lavender or almond)

    26. IGK Multi-Tasking Dry Shampoo adds major volume and soaks up excess oil and sweat thanks to its key ingredients: turmeric and charcoal powder.

    Promising review: "I love this dry shampoo! It’s always a chore for me to look for one that works perfectly — something that does not leave a white cast at all, absorbs oil and sweat, adds a slight pleasant smell, and gives a just blow dried hair look. This is the one! It smells pleasant. I have oily, shoulder-length black hair and this is so good! I don’t use much since it has stronger absorbency than regular high-end dry shampoos." —GlassHips

    Price: $27 (sale price: $22.95+)
