RAVE REVIEW: "I wanted a pencil that I could use for my entire eye for every day, and this is perfect! It has just the right amount of shine and color to look like I did something but not too much. The pencil is soft and easy to apply as well. I need another for my travel bag now!"

WHO IT'S FOR: This dry shampoo is suited for all hair types, from pin straight to tight coils.

Drunk Elephant C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum


WHAT IT DOES: Meet the key to filter-free selfies. Packed with brightness-boosting vitamin C, ferulic acid, and powerful fruit enzymes, this serum leaves you with radiant, clear, I-woke-up-like-this skin.

RAVE REVIEW: "I've been using this serum for a week now, and I can't believe the results. My face is literally glowing! My pores seem tighter, and my overall complexion looks almost perfect, which I've never experienced with any other product (and I have used a lot of pricey products)."

WHAT IT DOES: Using color-corrective technologies and organic tanning actives, this cult-favorite product mixes with your moisturizer to create a natural, sunkissed glow with no streaks, smells, or orange tones. Add a few drops of this to your skincare routine for an authentic, just-back-from-the-beach look.

HELPFUL TIP: Choose peach for a light tan and a brightness boost, green for a medium tan and reduced redness, and violet for a dark tan and reduced sallow tones.

RAVE REVIEW: “Best ever! Awesome to use over daily moisturizer. It keeps my skin from getting too greasy, and my makeup goes on great after applying this.”

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask


WHAT IT DOES: Say bye-bye to dry, flaky lips. This hydrating formula contains nourishing ingredients like vitamin C and antioxidants to ensure a soft, supple pout by morning.

WHY WE LOVE IT: "The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is hands-down my holy grail. Not only does it smell phenomenal (I have the vanilla), but it also leaves your lips insanely soft and supple by morning no matter how chapped they were the night before. I apply it religiously—sometimes even during the day—and the jar still lasts for months and months."—Kate Ferris, Associate Editor
