The Dior Lip Glow Oil has been all the rave lately! This nourishing lip oil comes in eight beautiful shades, and comes with 6mL of product. Not to mention, we also love the large, doe foot applicator that makes it super easy to apply on the lips.

For a more affordable option, the NYX Fat Oil Lip Drip Moisturizing Shiny and Vegan Tinted Lip Gloss (4.6mL) is a fantastic alternative! This nourishing lip oil is very comparable to Dior’s as it also comes in eight beautiful shades, and also has a large doe-foot applicator. Although this carries slightly less product than Dior’s, its value is still unbeatable as it is nearly four times cheaper.

Lately, we’ve been seeing the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand all over TikTok. Specifically, the shade ‘Pinkgasm’ has been super trendy. This highlighter/blush hybrid comes with 12mL of product, and gives the skin a beautiful glow while also adding a flush of colour.

Lastly, we have the ‘Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils.’ This mascara not only adds volume to the lashes, but it also lengthens them, giving them a ‘false-lash’ effect.
