Fekkai Salon Hair Color
The biggest name in hair salons brings you gorgeous at-home color plus a true salon-style experience: You mix the color components using the bowl and brush provided — just like the pros do — for thorough blending and even color application. (Cosmetology license not required.) ($30)

 

Revlon Custom Creations Foundation
Your skin color changes throughout the year, from the self-tanned heights of summer to the pastiest depths of winter. This bottle of base has five settings, so you can adjust the color — making it a tad darker or lighter — to suit whichever skin you're in. (Starting at $11.79)

Urban Decay Brow Box
Arm yourself for the perpetual battle of the brows. Two shades of powder create a natural fill-in color, while handy tweezers eliminate strays and soft wax keeps stubborn hairs firmly in place. ($29)

Pack your bags: What the rolling suitcase did for luggage this rolling dispenser does for under-eye circles — it makes them lighter to tow and easier to stow. The cool metal tip of this de-puffing pen delivers caffeine, glycerin, and Pro Vitamin B5.
(Starting at $13.49)

Waterford Parfum Lismore
It's hard to say which we think is prettier: the romantic floral scent or the crystal bottle it comes in. When you've used up the fragrance, it can hold a different kind of floral — use it as a keepsake bud vase. (Starting at $50.06)

Gillette Venus Embrace
Talk about smooth sailing. This curve-hugging shaver has five moisture-wrapped blades that glide along even the toughest shaving spots. (Ankles and knees, anyone?) The result: baby-soft, nick-free skin. (Starting at $7.25)

Tarte Purse Your Lips Limited Edition T5 Super Fruit Complex Lip Gloss Clutch
"Suckers for great packaging" doesn't even begin to describe us. But the glosses inside are as fab as the vintage-looking clutch: nine shimmering and sheer shades loaded with lip-refining antioxidants. ($39)

 

Matrix Biolage Volumizing Whipped Mousse
It's all about the nozzle. The same tip you'd find on a can of whipped cream delivers a thick puff of product that doesn't dissolve as soon as it hits your hands, which means more plumping ingredients are delivered to your lift-deprived roots. (Starting at $12.49)

Come on, who doesn't love a two-for-one deal? This antiaging foundation boasts a wrinkle-fighting, skin-brightening serum mixed in with it's sheer, skin perfecting pigments — now you can correct as you cover. (Starting at $68.85)

 

Lancome Oscillation Mascara

Benefit Powderflage
Using "hey, look over there!" light-diffusing technology, this pink powder brightens up the under-eye area and softens fine lines without piling on the product. It's the alternative that concealer-phobes have been waiting for. ($28.00)

    • This one tweet explains that truly bizarre Oscars Best Picture mixup perfectly

      In what is certainly the weirdest moment in Oscars history, the incorrect Best Picture winner was announced on stage to finish off the 89th Academy Awards. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway first announced La La Land as the big winner of the night. The cast and crew walked onstage and began to make their speeches, only to be stopped halfway through — the correct winner was actually Moonlight. Comedian Jackie Jennings quickly pointed out a perfect explanation for the bizarre mistake. WAIT BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY THE REAL END OF LA LA LAND AND ITS GREAT #Oscars — Jackie Jennings (@ohhijackie) February 27, 2017 La La Land' s depressing dream sequence finale was oddly similar to the ending of the Oscars. The Oscars ended exactly like La La Land did. La La Land is the Oscars. The Oscars are La La Land . SEE ALSO: Your guide to the 2017 Oscars, in highly accurate charts As the dust settles on the weirdest Academy Awards thing of all time, more dazed viewers have begun to realize the connection.

    • Yes, California's drought is all but over, and the dramatically revived Cachuma Lake proves it

      Heading into February, things were looking grim here in the rugged hills north of Santa Barbara. While much of California was emerging from five years of drought, this giant reservoir had dwindled to a weedy channel at just 7% of capacity and was perilously close to being written off as a regional water supply. And then the rains came in unrelenting horizontal sheets. It was one of the largest storms in memory over the Santa Ynez Valley on Feb. 17, swamping historical records and causing the lake to rise a whopping 31 feet in depth in just a few days. It “slammed us with intense sideways rain,” recalled Beverly Keller, manager of the Cachuma Lake General Store. “Falling on the roof of my mobile

    • Guy quits his crappy job in the best way possible

      Sometimes, you need to go out with a bang. Or a flush. Giving two weeks is a pretty standard practice when employees move on from their current job. It allows the company a short amount of time to search for a replacement, and gives the employee an opportunity to leave on good standing. You never know when you may need that reference — or worse, when you may need your old job back. While most people quickly Google "two-week notice letter" and follow a pretty standard form, this guy decided on a different method. SEE ALSO: Lucky woman wins lottery days after quitting her job According to his wife, Redditor Girlofgodsbadday, this dude decided to quit his job by writing his two-week notice on a few sheets of toilet paper.  "I have chosen this type of paper for my 2 week resignation as a symbol of how I feel this company has treated me, and ironically, how it is disposed of is where I feel the company is going," the letter reads. Just in case the message wasn't clear, he drew a toilet next to where he signed his name. While he didn't use the term "ironically" properly, we're going to give him a pass because handing that over to any boss takes some serious guts.

    • Danica Patrick Rips New NASCAR Rules Following Daytona 500 Crash

      Danica Patrick was right in the thick of Sunday’s Daytona 500 when she was forced to exit following a 17-car crash that began when Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 car was struck by Trevor Bayne’s No. 6 car. After she was cleared by medical personnel, Patrick spoke with For The Win’s Michelle R. Martinelli and put the blame for the crash on NASCAR’s new rule changes, specifically the rule that created staged racing. “The stages are definitely going to add to it,” Patrick said per Martinelli, “because not only is it creating a reason to push at certain points in the race that aren’t anything but the last 20, but you’re also seeing it shuffling the grid up.” But, that wasn’t the only new rule that Patrick

    • Ryan Gosling's barely stifled giggle over Best Picture fiasco sweeps social media

      As much as he probably should have been disappointed that La La Land didn't scoop Best Picture following a colossal envelope error, Ryan Gosling was all of us at last night's Academy Awards. A picture of the Oscar-nominated actor taken as he learnt that it was in fact Moonlight that had taken the night's top prize has quickly swept social media, Gosling's barely restrained laughter capturing that universal feeling of getting the inappropriate giggles. It's the Oscar equivalent of irrationally cracking up at a funeral.
