And just like that, another year is in the books.

But where to start? With a little R&R, if you ask us! Ahead, find a few of our favorite Add-Ons this month for nourishing your skin, playing with color, and getting that glow—both inside and out. 

Spot some need-to-haves on this list? Then set your alarm for January 1st, when you can personalize your Glam Bag with up to 10 Add-Ons that make your monthly shipment even more amazing. But hurry, because you only have until the 3rd to shop—and these picks (from OLEHENRIKSEN, PAT McGRATH LABS, and more!) will go fast. Scroll down, sneak a peek, and meet us right back here next month for a first look at February’s spoilers.

1. TARTE™ Shape Tape™ Radiant Concealer

If you’re still sporting dark circles from the holiday hustle, snag this featherlight, medium-coverage concealer to help neutralize darkness and treat your skin to 24 hours of hydration. The famed TARTE™ Shape Tape™ formula (now in a radiant finish) practically guarantees your makeup will look top-notch—but if you really want to up your concealer skills, check out our top concealer hacks.

2. OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright™ Face Primer

One of our resolutions this year is to look awake and alive at all times, and a brightening primer like this one is the perfect place to start. This vitamin C-enriched formula delivers instant radiance while extending the wear of your complexion products. Wear it under your makeup or mixed in with your foundation to create a dewy, healthy-looking glow that will fool everyone into thinking you snoozed for a full eight hours.

3. LAURA MERCIER Caviar Stick in Bed of Roses

This metallic pink-rose eyeshadow stick would be the perfect finishing touch to a glazed eyeshadow look. The longwear formula contains light-reflecting pearls and transparent micas for a dewy 3D glow that self-adjusts. Layer it up for more pigment, or apply a small amount for a natural-looking dewiness.

4. PAT McGRATH LABS Dark Star Volumizing Mascara in Xtreme Black

Did you accept your mission to score Icon Box by Pat McGrath in November? If you weren’t able to land a coveted spot, don’t despair—because we’re bringing another must-have from Mother herself to Add-Ons. This gravity-defying mascara is our go-to for instant volume, multidimensional length, and weightless lift. We love the gel-hybrid formula and the contoured brush that helps sculpt your lashes.

5. E.L.F. COSMETICS Glossy Lip Stain in Pinkies Up

More saturated than a lip balm and less pigmented than a lipstick, this deep berry lip stain is the perfect in-between product for when you want to achieve a more natural makeup look. And just because it’s comfy to wear and leaves behind a juicy sheen doesn’t mean it will feather or fade. The formula is designed to be long-lasting and transfer-resistant.

6. PINROSE Wild Child Fragrance Rollerball 

We’re big fans of PINROSE at IPSY (we’re never not in our fragrance era!), and this floral scent has us all captivated. With notes of bergamot, jasmine, and vanilla, this creamy but sparkling fragrance is one that will have everyone asking you what perfume you’re wearing. 

7. AMIKA Top Gloss Shine Spray

You know hairsprays and you know sea salt sprays, but what do you know about shine sprays? The name says it all: Shine sprays, added as a finishing touch to your look, bring a sheen to your hairstyle. In addition to giving your hair the ultimate glossy finish, this pick from AMIKA (one of our fave hair-care brands), also fights frizz and helps keep your color vibrant—a total must-have in your hair-care arsenal.

8. AMIKA Un.Done Volume and Matte Texture Spray

This finishing spray might be the secret weapon to achieving Jen Atkin’s signature beachy waves. It creates instant volume and texture for that effortless look we all covet. Shake the bottle, spritz it onto your styled hair, then tousle your strands—and voila! You woke up like this (well, not really, but we won’t tell).

9. KOPARI BEAUTY Niacinamide and Caffeine Eye Bright Cream

Perk up tired under eyes with a hit of caffeine from this KOPARI BEAUTY eye cream. Clinically proven to fade dark circles, this cream helps tightens and smooths the appearance of wrinkles while also soothing and hydrating your skin. That’s thanks in part to niacinamide, an ingredient known to fade the appearance of dark circles and help skin retain moisture.

10. KATE SOMERVILLE® ExfoliKate® Glow Moisturizer

True story: The ExfoliKate® line never misses. This essential moisturizer contains powerhouse ingredients (like glycolic and lactic acids) to remove dead surface skin cells while also going deep into skin for dewy, refreshed, radiant results. In a clinical study, after just one week 97% of users reported skin feeling smoother, and 90% reported an improvement in skin tone evenness. The numbers speak for themselves!

11. OLEHENRIKSEN Cold Plunge Pore Remedy Moisturizer

If large pores are preventing you from achieving a flawless finish, try introducing this lightweight moisturizer to your skincare routine. It’s designed specifically for oily and combo skin types, and helps to instantly hydrate and diminish the look of pores with BHA (salicylic acid) and LHA. Plus, it smoothes uneven skin texture and targets the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

12. RODIAL Retinol 10% Booster Drops

We love whenever a beauty innovation hits the market, and these booster drops fit the bill. The formula combines traditional retinol with plant-derived bakuchiol (aka the natural alternative to retinol) to help to reveal you a more refined complexion. This way, you get to tap into the texture-improving benefits of retinol and the soothing and texture-refining powers of bakuchiol without reaching for an extra product.

13. JLO BEAUTY Firm & Flaunt Targeted Booty Balm 

This product might be called a “booty balm,” but you can actually use it anywhere you want skin that looks firmer and smoother, like your waist, hips, thighs, and arms. This clinically tested formula from JLO BEAUTY contains powerful active ingredients like guarana seed extract and pink pepperslim to deliver results you can see and feel (plus an instant hydration boost!)

14. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Magic Touch Concealer

Correct, brighten, blur, and conceal all with one magical product. This lightweight formula from Ipster-fave brand ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS melts into skin while creating a soft-focus effect with medium to full coverage. And did we mention it doesn’t crease? Now that’s magic.

15. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

There’s a reason this palette continues to top our list of best eyeshadow palettes time and time again—it’s just that good. So if you haven’t gotten your hands on this cult classic yet, now’s your chance! Snag this 14-pan palette of berry and neutral tones while supplies last, and prepare to exude modern elegance with your eyeshadow looks in 2024.
