just because I’ve used it before — but not anymore. These clever beauty products are 10 times better than what you usually use, so you can all upgrade your routines without searching for hours for new products.
Swap out your usual cream eye shadow that feels
way too sticky for the crease-proof eyeshadow stick on this list. There’s also a talc-free dry shampoo on this list with a trendy printed bottle that looks adorable on your bathroom countertop. There’s even a set of waterproof and trendy hair ties that won’t get grimy in your makeup bag.
