This year, it seems the beauty pros were thinking in — and out of — the box. Here, we highlight the best kits that meet all needs, from big to small, as well as innovative products that work smarter, not harder.

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)

Fragrance isn't an easy gift to give — even when you're gifting yourself. Rather than decide on the spot, try all 10 deluxe samples of Sephora's best-selling scents and then use the enclosed gift certificate to treat yourself to the scent you liked best. ($50)

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)

(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)

Lancome Oscillation Mascara
Good, good, good, good vibrations: If this mascara could sing, this would be its anthem. This mascara uses cool micropulsing technology that helps the brush get deeper into the lash line, separating and evenly coating lashes with a plumping formula. ($34)

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)

    • Red Bull heir enjoys jet-set life 4 years after hit-and-run

      The Ferrari driver who allegedly slammed into a motorcycle cop, dragged him along the road and then sped away from the mangled body took just hours to find, as investigators followed a trail of brake fluid into the gated estate of one of Thailand's richest families. When Vorayuth, 31, has been called in to face authorities, he hasn't shown up, claiming through his attorney that he's sick or out of the country on business. Within weeks of the accident, The Associated Press has found, Vorayuth was back to enjoying his family's jet-set life, largely associated with the Red Bull brand, an energy drink company co-founded by his grandfather.

    • Reheating Rice Can Give You Food Poisoning If You Don't Do This

      Although reheating takeout when you're too busy to cook is one of life's great pleasures, leftover rice can actually be scarily bad for you, the NHS say. Because if you didn't already know, you can get a pretty grim case of food poisoning from eating reheated rice; it's not the reheating that causes the problem, but instead the way the rice has been stored after being cooked the first time. So uncooked rice often contains spores (cells capable of reproducing quickly) of Bacillus cereus — a bacteria strand that can cause food poisoning — that can survive when rice is cooked. And if the rice is left standing at room temperature after it's been boiled, the spores can grow into bacteria, which will

    • Homeowner’s son kills three would-be burglars with AR-15

      Three would-be robbers were shot and killed Monday when an Oklahoma homeowner’s son opened fire on them with an AR-15, authorities said. Wagoner County sheriff’s deputies were called to the home in Broken Arrow, southeast of Tulsa at around 12:30 p.m. local time. When they arrived, they found the three dead suspects and two uninjured residents. Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Nick Mahoney said the suspects enetered the home through a glass back door with the intent to burglarize it. It was not immediately clear why they picked that home. Mahoney said the suspects encountered the homeowner’s 19-year-old son, who opened fire after an exchange of words. Two of the suspects died in the home’s kitchen

    • NASA just captured a photo of Jupiter that you won’t believe is real

      NASA has managed to capture some pretty stunning photos of all the cool stuff they've spotted over the years, and rarely does it fail to amaze. There's images of planet surfaces, the rings of Saturn, and even black holes flying through space totally unchecked . Rarely, however, does a photo look so unreal that at first glance you'd be likely to mistake it for a work of Earthling art. A new photo captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft falls into that category, and oh what a sight it is. The image, originally taken by Juno's "JunoCam" camera, was taken in early February and shows Jupiter's ever-swirling mass of storm clouds from an altitude of roughly 9,000 miles. The storms which continually rock the planet take on a milky appearance when captured up close, and a citizen scientist named Roman Tkachenko took the liberty of enhancing the photo's colors to bring out even more of the defining lines and edges. The Juno craft, packed with all kinds of fancy monitoring equipment, made its fifth flyby of the planet on Monday, which is also the fourth "science orbit," which is the name they give the flybys when all the instruments on board are up and running. The craft's next flyby won't happen until late May 2017, so it's a rare and exciting event when one of these close passes goes by without a hitch. The craft's data is currently being sent to Earth where researchers will continue to mine it for precious information about our solar system's most intimidating planet.

    • Police find crying girls — and their overdosed parents — in park

      The two little girls were crying outside of a parked blue pickup truck when Columbus police found them Saturday evening at Big Walnut Park on the East Side.

The father, Anthony R. Boster, 34, of the 7000 block of Janis Drive, appeared Monday in Franklin County Municipal Court on two counts of endangering children and one felony count of receiving stolen property.

    • 'Dreamer's' post on paying taxes goes viral

      PHOENIX — On Sunday morning, Arizona State University junior Belen Sisa posted a simple Facebook update that she paid her taxes. Sisa, 23, is a "dreamer" — her parents visited the U.S. from Argentina when she was 6 and overstayed their visas — but she is shielded from deportation by President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. DACA allows young undocumented immigrants without serious criminal records who were brought to the U.S. as children to register their personal information with the government, and in exchange receive federal work permits and a two-year reprieve from the threat of deportation, which allows them to get a Social Security number and a driver's license.
