Rise and shine, Ipsters—a new year is upon us, and that means another chance to reinvent, refresh, and reset your beauty routine to feel like the best you possible. So toss the dry mascaras, dump the expired skincare (*ahem* not that you have any, right?), and clear out the foundations that have always been the wrong shade. It’s time to make space for fresh faves, just like the ones below you could build your Glam Bag Plus with in January.
For a first look at more spoilers like these, check back here each month to be in the know. Curious what you might have missed last month? Check out December’s Build Your Bag Spoilers.
What if we told you that you could minimize frizz and damage before you start applying your hair serums and oils? Well, you can—and the secret is this soft, waffle-knit microfiber towel that dries your hair 50% faster and more gently than that big ol’ towel you have hanging on your bathroom rack. Simply wrap your hair with it after a wash day, then leave it on for at least five minutes for optimal drying.
There’s nothing like a little shimmer to make your beauty world brighter. This ultra-hydrating, non-sticky gloss gives off a warm pink glow with a golden shimmer that adds just the right amount of pop to any look you’re wearing, and the formula’s vegan lanolin and jojoba oils all but guarantee it’ll feel as smooth as butter on your lips.
If you’re anything like us, black eyeliner is like the skinny jean of your makeup drawer. It’s a classic, it’s safe, and it’s something you always go back to—even though you know there are plenty of other options out there. So if you need a little help getting out of your makeup comfort zone, try this coffee-colored eyeliner from EYEKO. It’s just dark enough for subtle definition, but just light enough that it won’t look harsh around your eyes. Plus, the felt tip makes it easier to apply than other liquid eyeliners.
One of our 2022 beauty resolutions is to wear more eyeshadow (after the past two years of minimal makeup, it’s about time!), and this four-piece set is just what we were looking for. It has everything you need to apply your eyeshadow like a pro, including a blending brush, an all-over brush, a smudger brush, and a cut-crease brush. Plus the soft bristles can be used on powders, liquids, and cream alike—so no makeup look is off-limits.
Speaking of wearing a little more makeup this year, this setting spray is the perfect way to keep your hard work in place. Just a few spritzes of this mattifying solution, and your makeup won’t budge for the rest of the day. Tip: Spray this on an eyeshadow brush before dipping into a shade to give the pigment extra intensity.
Believe the hype—TATCHA really is that good. That’s why we can’t wait to snatch up this gentle cleanser during Add-Ons. Inspired by the Japanese concept of kiyome (purification), this formula uses natural luffa fruit and wild rose to lift dirt, minimize excess oil, and unclog and tighten pores. Say hello to a year of hydrated skin.
Rise and shine and wake up to seriously hydrated lips. This lip mask from HONEY JARRET works while you sleep to get rid of flaky skin and give you smooth lips for morning—and we can’t think of any better way to start the day. Plus, it contains a raspberry fruit extract that helps strengthen your skin’s barrier and absorbs quickly, so you don’t need to fuss with any sticky formulas.
You already know we’re obsessed with Rihanna (who isn’t?). But we don’t just don’t love this highlighter because it comes from her brand FENTY BEAUTY. We love it because it delivers killer radiance with every swipe. The cream-powder hybrid instantly melts into your skin and is loaded with super-fine shimmer for one of the creamiest textures we’ve tried yet.
Hyaluronic acid serums hold a special place in any skincare aficionado’s heart. They draw moisture into your skin, alleviating dryness and nourishing your complexion to help balance the overall health of your skin. This booster from 111SKIN, though, is a step above the rest. Its low-molecular-weight formula is able to penetrate deeply into the layers of your skin, while other moisturizing ingredients target the surface layers to lock in hydration—making it a must-have for your skincare lineup.
