Stila Heaven's Hue highlighters

Not quite a powder, not quite a cream, these bouncy hybrid highlighters come in eight shades and impart a seriously celestial sheen wherever you sweep it on (fingers work best with these, but you can also use a brush).

If undereye circles, fine lines, or dullness is an ongoing nuisance for you, this eye serum will go to town on that small, delicate plot of land above your cheeks with arnica, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and peptides — ostensibly, the four horsemen of the apocalypse for your undereye issues.

Taliah Waajid Bamboo, Biotin & Basil Curl Activator & Defining Cream

Styling your curls and protecting them can often be at odds, but with this nourishing cream, you really can have your cake and eat it too, figuratively-speaking.

Fenty Beauty Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner

Whatever Rihanna releases is gold and this liquid eyeliner is no exception. Imagine being Rihanna and testing out eyeliner via the events in all her music videos? There is no doubt it would hold up to a night out spent at the dancehall, going for a midnight ocean swim, and whatever high-stakes shenanigans you get up to just trying to get your money back. Or if you're just a beauty editor going through your workday — it stays put all day for that too.

J.One Red Jelly Pack

People who hate primers really love these J.One "packs." The newest one (following the brand's popular white and black one), this Red Jelly Pack, features red algae as an active ingredient to hydrate like a serum as it floods your skin with moisture while simultaneously leaving behind the bounciest and most makeup-gripping canvas.

Bobbi Brown Highlight & Glow Shimmer Brick Palette

Bobbi Brown's single Shimmer Bricks are covetable enough (and slightly on the steep side) so this palette containing three bricks with limited-edition shades is not only just good economics, it's also incredibly versatile — and pretty. Can't forget pretty.

Milk Makeup Kush Brow Gel

This tinted brow gel dials up the saturation, thickness, and contrast of your brows in an impressive single stroke of its wand. Plus, the CBD oil-enhanced formula makes brows feels soft, not stiff. For more accolades on this new brow product, just ask our digital beauty editor.

Supergoop Sun-Defying Sunscreen Oil Broad Spectrum SPF 50

No one likes the feeling of sunscreen — that's not a totally inaccurate generalization to make. People do like the feeling of body oil though, and this one from Supergoop happens to protect your skin with SPF 50 while making it also feel super soft with meadowfoam seed oil. This makes daily sunscreen wear (which you should be doing anyway) on your exposed extremities easy and enjoyable.

D.S. & Durga I Don't Know What Fragrance Enhancer

This eau de parfum and fragrance enhancer is meant to bring out and highlight certain aromas on your fragrance-spritzed self (or one's natural skin smell), however its a remarkably fresh yet complex scent all its own. With the bright bite of bergamot essence on top of iso e super, vetiver acetate, civettone, firsantol, and ambrox super, the combination smells like sparkling pine trees lining sun-bleached wood washed up on a beach.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Restore + Revive Bi-Phase

This dual-layered protecting hair mist is an amazing morning refresher for slept-on curls. Just shake, spritz, and twirl as needed while grapeseed and meadowfoam oils condition your hair to make sure frizz is its most well-behaved (aka scarce).

Flesh Beauty Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Brazen

A red is a red, is a red, is a red — but this one is a Brazen red. This liquid lipstick has a deeply saturated pigment to it that, matched with its matte finish, gives you an attention-grabbing bold red lip look that is not to be messed with. And if we're being honest here, you really can't have too many of those.

Acwell Bubble-free pH Balancing Cleanser

For those graduating from Cetaphil (or anyone, really) and wary of too-harsh face cleansers, this gentle option is a dream. With a low pH (very important), the foam-free gel formula also has stuff like licorice root, centella, witch hazel, and aloe — four cornerstones for hydration, balance, brightening, and calming.

R+Co Spiritualized Dry Shampoo Mist

There's a lot to love and hate about dry shampoo, simultaneously. This new one from trendy hair coiffeurs R+Co is actually a cleansing mist. Its micellar-based formula gently breaks up buildup on your scalp and hair so you can stretch that style another day (love that) without the dreaded powdery, gritty feel that your fingers get stuck in when running your hands through your hair (hate that).

Mushrooms are having a moment right now, and Four Sigmatic happens to make these conveniently-packaged elixirs that contain the health benefits of fungi, in the way of balanced metabolism, increased focus and energy, and zenning you out.

This all-time-favorite K-beauty makeup removing powerhouse of a cleanser just updated its formula and gave its packaging a little makeover. Instead of mineral oil, the cleansing balm now uses natural esters to help emulsify and wash away makeup, oil, and whatever is left on your face after the day (which it's very good at doing).

ColourPop No Filter Foundation

ColourPop's first liquid foundation proved to be an impressive debut. The lightweight formula packs a lot of pigment in the smallest drop, so you only need one pump for your entire face (if that).

Ex Nihilo Collection Signature Fragrance

Ex Nihilo makes some of the most unique and obsession-worthy scents around, but the niche French perfume brand prides itself a bit on its exclusivity — not all of its fragrances are available everywhere in the world. However, a treat for the fragrance enthusiast would be the brand's personalization program, which is available at Saks Fifth Avenue New York and allows you to choose a combination of notes offered from the brand to create a demi-bespoke fragrance when you just can't choose which one you want.
