Urban Decay Vice Lipstick
$17; some shades on sale for $11 at Sephora
Best 17 bucks I ever spent. I still have a tube of the limited edition 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' lipstick that I am carefully, carefully hoarding. Luckily, this one has 100 shades available--seriously--so when the time comes I'll definitely be re-stocking with Vice. The names range from Anarchy, Big Bang, and Jawbreaker. Definitely recommend for when you need to feel like a James Bond villain.
Burt's Bees BB Cream
Burt's Bees is a classic that never goes out of style. It's all-natural, won't make you break out like some other concealers will, and just looks great too. Thanks, bees. You really did us a favor here.
LUSH Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Tint
It smells and tastes like actual candy. Vegan, animal-cruelty free, and not too pricey. The only "problem" is that when I apply any LUSH lip product I want to lick it off. I can live with that, though...
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish
I am hopelessly awful at painting my nails. Gel polish is a lifesaver for me with my clumsy hands, and there's no UV light or anything fancy required. Just apply the polish, sit back, and profit.
FRESH Soy Face Cleanser
$15.00 and up
Whenever I have an awful, no-good, bad morning, I use this stuff and it makes my face feel so much better. Not even an 8 AM class can hurt me when this face wash feels so clean, and has a subtly sweet scent as well!
ELF Little Brow Book Kit
On sale for $4; orig. $10
Set includes: 4 reusable eyebrow stencils, 2 powder eyeshadow shades, 1 eyebrow defining wax, 1 eyebrow brush, 1 dual-ended brow and pencil brush and 1 tweezer.
It's 4 dollars. ELF is a gift every day of the year.
Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Orange Ginger Body Lotion
Pretty sure the scent of this lotion could bring me back from the dead. Great for when you're so tired that motivation is out of the question.
Maison Lavender Body Butter
If I had it my way, I would make everything lavender-scented. It's calming, natural, and the scent stays for longer than some harsher perfumes.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
The cherry one smells divine, and there are even tinted sprays for people who are too indecisive to commit to hair dye, like me.
Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask
If you're like me and your skin hates you sometimes, this might be a really good choice. Mud masks can be pricey and messy, but these cute little single-use ones are harmless. Yes to Tomatoes is also a great natural brand, and never irritates my skin.
