Viral vanity bag picks for your always-online BFF.
For the friend who’s bonafide #BeautyTok obsessed comes our curated list of internet-approved products. Whether you’re looking for the perfect budget-friendly Secret Santa pick (a next-level hydrating gloss at $14 should do) or really want to spoil her (how about a beloved 12-shade eyeshadow palette?), there’s a little something beautiful for every budget. Ahead, 10 TikTok-viral beauty gifts to wrap up this holiday season.
NYX Fat Oil Lip Drip
Stocking stuffer alert! NYX’s Fat Oil Lip Drip has earned its online stamp of approval for three key reasons: a mega-hydrating ingredient list (including raspberry oil), a comfortable, non-sticky texture and that undeniable high-shine finish.
Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops
Makeup bag, meet sunshine in a bottle. You can’t watch a GRWM without witnessing Drunk Elephant’s antioxidant-rich, peptide-infused serum doing its glow-getting prep work. What you don’t see is how it supports the skin’s natural elasticity and barrier function in the long run.
Glow Recipe Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Acid Serum
Smoothing skin texture, refining pores, clearing up breakouts — is there anything this strawberry-infused serum can’t do? Glow Recipe’s viral pink bottle — which makes for a pretty pop in her vanity — uses a combo of BHA and AHA to reveal soft skin in one made-for-daily-use formula.
Haus Labs by Lady Gaga Triclone Skin Tech Concealer
The best concealer discourse is a bonafide debate on TikTok, but Haus Labs’ latest launch — the Triclone Skin Tech Concealer — is quickly winning out. An impressive 31 shades and a clean, vegan formula are just the start: imperceptible, blurred-out coverage and its long-term, de-puffing action is what keeps devotees coming back.
Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush
If it seems like Selena Gomez can only make products that become instant best-sellers, that’s because it’s true. But none have made more of an impact than Rare Beauty’s Soft Pinch, a 13-shade lineup of weightless, flush-imparting liquid blush. Take your pick from dewy or matte finishes, and when fans say it lasts forever, they really mean it.
Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Hydrating Makeup Primer
If she’s going to spend hours on her makeup, she might as well make it stick. That’s the idea behind Milk’s hyaluronic acid-packed primer which offers up to 12 hours of stay-put grip. You really get the best of both worlds: its comfy gel formula prevents caking while aloe water and niacinamide boost your skin’s hydration levels.
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40
Get her hooked on SPF with the holy grail of sunscreen, Supergoop!’s actually-invisible, glides-on-so-good formula. Beyond the broad spectrum protection, it’s oil-free formula also accounts for blue light (bless!) and won’t disrupt her meticulously done makeup.
Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter
The Charlotte Tilbury brand talks a lot about makeup magic, but this filter-like skin boost totally steals the show. Wear it alone, under foundation, mixed in with your regular cream, or otherwise and the end result is always the same: a pore-less, completely flawless finish. Consider us influenced.
Saie Glow Sculpt Multi-Use Cream Highlighting Blush
Clean beauty brand Saie does multi-purpose products really well. Case in point: this five star-earning glowy blush and sculpting highlighter in one. Expect a creamy, tinted highlighter that’s never glittery that also happens to hydrate the skin. Bonus: the pretty compact is refillable so you can pop in a new shade pan when you’re through.
Patrick Ta Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette
The beauty options are endless with Patrick Ta’s Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette, which features both cream and powder formulas. Twelve neutral shades — from chocolate-y brown Woman to an iridescent apricot hue called Opulence — let them craft a glowing look that’s all their own.
