New Goodies Our Beauty Editors Are Already Excited to Gift
When you’re shopping for a new lipstick or foundation, it’s a smart idea to go straight to those who know best. We’re talking about beauty editors. No one has swiped, spritzed or smeared more products than those who write about them on a daily basis. Behold, brand-new goodies that the PureWow team can’t stop talking about.
Fenty Beauty Highlighter
Although this brand’s foundation is the talk of the town, gifting the perfect shade is a tricky gamble. Instead, go for the equally buzzy (and highly-reviewed) highlighter.
Personalized Shampoo and Conditioner
For that friend who struggles to find hair products that will both reduce frizz, define curls and protect against heat.
Function of Beauty ($36)
Needing to shower without getting your hair wet is something we all can relate to. Stealing the flimsy, plastic shower caps every time you stay in a hotel is too. Stop the madness and gift your pals (and yourself?) this adorably stylish version.
Dermalogica Precleanse Balm
Get ready to make regular facials a thing of the past (gasp). The special pre-treatment uses a gentle mitt to deeply scrub pores and remove any dirt or makeup. Then the face wash takes it home for immaculately clean skin.
Gold Infused Lip Balm
A hydrating lip balm made with 23-karat-gold flakes? Consider your BFF seriously impressed.
Body Hero Duo
The newest offering from the Instagram-famous brand is the perfect way to wow both of your sisters without breaking the bank. *Cue the bathroom shelfies.
Tanning Sleep Oil
Not only does this facial serum use sweet-smelling essential oils to lure you to sleep, it also features self-tanning powers that will have you glowing come 8 a.m.
L’Oreal Paris x Balmain Paris
Just because it’s probably be the only thing we can afford from Balmain doesn’t mean we take it lightly. These 12 shades of rich matte color are the best of both beauty and high fashion.
This new color release—diamond-inspired silver—gives you even more of a reason to scoop one up.
Great Barrier Chap Guard
Although marketed as a balm for dry lips, chapped hands or winter-blasted skin, our favorite use for this powerful formula is as the ultimate cuticle repair.
Great Barrier ($12)
Dr. Jart+ Bright Lover Rubber Mask
The creepiest thing you’ve ever seen? Possibly. But this two-piece rubber mask will brighten your skin like no other. And at under $15 a pop, you can get two and have a good laugh with Mom while you wear them.
Dr. Jart+ ($12)
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Dry Body Oil
Your favorite body cream, now in a super convenient body oil.
Vernon Francois Mist Nourishing Water
Does the job of dry shampoo without any of the powdery residue. Simply spritz this cleansing water into hair for a day-old-locks reboot.
Vernon Francois ($18)
Lipstick Queen Mini Transformative Trio
Enter the perfect white elephant gift. Each of the three lipsticks might look intimidatingly bold, but they all color-adjust to your natural lip hue and leave a soft color with a moisturizing finish.
Lipstick Queen ($25)
Drunk Elephant Hot Date
Perfect for your niece or sister who’s newly into skin care. This four-piece starter set is everything she could ever need for glowing, acne-free skin in an adorable unicorn package.
Drunk Elephant ($98)
Ouai Memory Mist
As the name explains, this holding spray memorizes the shape and texture of your hair and keeps it that way until your next shampoo. Um, genius.
