11. Julep Rock Star Hand Crème
Shea butter, glycerin, coconut oil and vitamin E are the stars in this hand cream, which was "crowd-sourced" by the brand's CEO. She turned to social media to find out which hand cream brands were customers' all-time favourites—and then formulated a Julep one based on the top ingredients.
12. Rebecca Minkoff Ciao Jody Pouch
This pearl-studded black leather pouch tucks into a handbag to store daily makeup essentials—or doubles as a clutch for nights out. It's also on sale right now!
13. Tasha Studded Suede Headband
A soft suede skinny headband gets dressed up with rounded silver studs, and the result is total cuteness. It comes in four shades, including this vibrant turquoise.
Where to buy: Nordstrom
14. Rad Nails Appealing Angle Cuticle Art Set
First, there was nail art. Now, there's cuticle art! Use water to affix these triangle designs below the nail beds, just like temporary tattoos.
Where to buy: Modcloth
15. Beautyblender Pro
The cult-favourite Beautyblender makeup sponge first came out in hot pink, and now it's arrived in black—the perfect shade for darker-toned products that would be difficult to rinse clean from a lighter-coloured applicator.
