The Charlotte Tilbury Mini Beauty Highlighter Wand Duo Set comes with two of the TikTok-viral Highlighter Wands in the shades Pinkgasm, a rose gold, and Spotlight, a bronze hue. Each has a cushion applicator that allows the super-pigmented colors to dispense onto the skin evenly and flawlessly.
Anastasia Beverly Hills created the Fuller Looking & Feathered Brow Kit for one simple reason: to deliver the gift of great eyebrows. In the bundle lives a Superfine Micro-Stroking Detail Brow Pen to fill in any sparse areas and a Strong Hold Clear Brow Gel to lock it all in.
If you haven’t tried the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, you’re missing out. This highly pigmented formula gives the perfect natural flush to the skin. In this set, you’ll find a full-size of the shade Encourage, a soft pink, and two travel-sized blushes in Truth, a mauve maroon, and Happy, a cool pink.
Tarte’s In Bloom Clay Eye Shadow Palette comes packed with 12 matte and shimmery neutral shades that are perfect for doing both casual, everyday looks and bolder, smoky makeup.
