EOS Lip Balm Three-Pack, $10

There are so many things to like about this lip-soothing kit: three delicious flavors (Sweet Mint, Honeysuckle Honeydew and Pomegranate Raspberry), a paraben-free formula, a dewy but not sticky finish and an egg-shaped package that conjures fond memories of playing with Silly Putty.

Fekkai Styling Hair Spray Sheer Hold, $21

This extra-light mist gives just the right amount of hold—enough to tame flyaways and keep roots lifted, while still allowing your hair to move when you do. And it smells expensive (so you do, too).

JK Jemma Kidd Showstopper Water Resistant Bronzer, $23

This universally flattering color booster won’t streak or turn orange by midday, thanks to its water-resistant properties. And the semimatte finish is especially good for combination- to oily-skin types.

pb Pink Eye Mask, $7

Wearing one of these while you sleep shuts out REM-interrupting light. It’s also helpful if you sleep next to an iPad addict whose device’s glow keeps you from settling down at night.

Boots Protect and Perfect Intense Beauty Serum, $23

At a fraction of the cost, this new retinol-spiked serum is said to garner results that rival those of Retin-A.

Philips Wake-Up Light, $90

This light flips on 30 minutes before your alarms goes off, emitting first a soft, dim glow, then gradually getting brighter. The result: a more civilized way to emerge from your beauty sleep.

Pixi Eye Bright Liner No. 1, $16

Use this flesh-colored liner to trace the inner rim of your lower lash line, and you will look instantly brighter and more awake (even if you don’t feel it).

Sonia Kashuk Lash Comb, $5

Groom unruly brows—and smooth out mascara clumps—with this dual-sided comb-brush set. It’s also retractable, so the brush won’t pick up stray powder at the bottom of your makeup bag.

Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo, $5

Lift roots on locks that fall flat—or stretch out time between sudsing—with this lemon-scented aerosol powder. Spritz on at the scalp, wait 10 seconds, then finger-fluff.
