1. NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation
hellogiggles - $ 40 Available at NARS
Folks, if you're looking for a full foundation that will keep your skin looking damp and not move at all, this is the one for you. I tried it for the first time when it came out and was so impressed with how it stood up to sweat and water (yes, I ran water on my face to test it). I'm usually some kind of BB Cream girl as I want my skin to look like skin, but I can get the same effect using this foundation - only now can I cover my dark circles and spots all day long as well. Use the code HOLIDAY to get a 20% discount on your purchase.
2. Briogeo Be gentle, be kind Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfood Mask
hellogiggles - $ 28.80 Available at Briogeo
I have long, dry, color treated hair so I always need moisturizing hair treatments to keep my hair healthy. This hair mask uses avocado oil, kiwi extract and spinach for a blend of ingredients that nourish, nourish and strengthen the hair. After just one use, my hair feels much softer and healthier than before, and it looks shinier too. In all honesty, I stan all Briogeo hair products so go to briogeo.com and use code HOLIDAY to get 20% off.
3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Mascara with great volume
hellogiggles - $ 18.90 Available at Marc Jacobs Beauty
I've tried hundreds of mascaras - I'm not exaggerating. It takes me a long time to be faithful to a makeup product, but I've been using this mascara since it first appeared a few years ago. Every time I use it, people compliment my eyelashes, and some even ask me if I wear eyelash extensions. It gives my lashes sky-high length, loads of fullness, and they won't shrink or peel off over time. Even better, if I want to reapply my mascara I can do so without the formula looking flaky. I could get poetic all day, but I'll let you try it yourself instead. Trust me you will love it.
4. T3 Lucea ID 1 inch straightening iron for intelligent straightening and styling
hellogiggles - $ 210 Available from Nordstrom
Welcome to the future of hot tools. The new Lucea ID line from T3 takes personalization to a completely new level thanks to its high-precision technology. It takes into account your hair length, texture, curl type and even whether or not you are going to dye your hair before it sets the perfect heat setting for you. No more overheating or under-styling! This tool will help you get the perfect look every time without ever harming the precious health of your hair.
5. Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Peeling
hellogiggles - $ 23.60 Available at Paula's Choice
My confidence skyrocketed after I started using this exfoliating fluid. It uses 2% salicylic acid, which decongests the pores of dead skin cells on the surface and then enters the pores to remove any harvesting bacteria. This helps treat existing acne and prevents future blemishes while correcting the texture of the skin. Just note that it's an acid. As with any other active ingredient, you should use it once or twice a week before building it up for daily use. Believe me you will love it.
6. Ole Henriksen Banana Creme with a light eye
hellogiggles - $ 27.30 Available from Ole Henriksen
If you are looking for an eye brightening cream that instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, this is the eye cream for you. This cream works as a color corrector that brightens dark circles, tightens the skin, and lights up the eye area for an I-woke-up-like-this look. If you're a fan of the brand (and who isn't?), You also know that the entire website offers a 30% discount. Get popular items like the Glow 2OH Dark Spot Toner, Banana Bright Face Primer, and Cold Plunge Pore Mask for a fraction of the price.
7. KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Liner
hellogiggles - $ 14.70 Available at KVD Vegan Beauty
This liquid eyeliner went viral after a woman posted a selfie after a car accident (don't worry, she's fine) with her mascara running over her face but her eyeliner intact. The formula is highly pigmented, glides smoothly and stays in place all day. The price is currently under $ 15, which is a massive bargain for such a high quality product. Everything at kvdveganbeauty.com is 30% cheaper, no code is required. So stop by for all of your bold and long-lasting makeup.
8. Kiehl's Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask
hellogiggles - $ 22.50 Available from Sephora
The cold winter air and strong winds can really dry out my skin, which is why it is very important to have a highly effective and gentle moisturizing face mask. This contains nourishing avocado, moisturizing glycerin and soothing primrose oil to keep your skin supple and soft. The jar is big enough to last a year last year that you will get a bang for your buck taking advantage of this deal.
9. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
hellogiggles - $ 18.90 Available at Tarte
Tartes Shape Tape Concealer is one of the most popular concealers on the market and is never put up for sale. It's loved by beauty influencers, makeup artists, and celebrities for its ability to cover up even the darkest under eye circles and pimples without looking cakey or wrinkled. In all honesty, I'm really surprised that it's included in Tarte's sale, but now that it does, I can't stress enough how much you should be looking at. Use code CYBER to get 30% off selected products.
10th Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Lightening Serum
hellogiggles - $ 42 Available at Sephora
Vitamin C serums are crucial for lightening dull skin, which is a very relevant skin problem as we don't get a lot of natural sunlight. This highly rated serum is over 50% cheaper right now, and I can assure you it won't last long. So grab it while you can and apply it daily for a glowing complexion. You're welcome.
11. MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo lipstick

Red lipstick can make anyone feel confident, sexy, and powerful, and this cult classic is your best bet. It's a universal red, which means it will flatter all skin types. The formula looks matte but feels moisturizing on the lips. In my opinion, it's one of the best red lipsticks ever.
