These unassuming little jars are filled with stunning, in-your-face colors that are just dying to be noticed. I love that MAC creates limited edition Paint Pots for various collections (although then it makes me sad when I get all the way to the bottom of the tub and there’s no finding the color again). I love that the color is richly pigmented and stays on all night without creasing, even if I’m dancing up a storm in a hot club. And I love that the colors work as both a primer and shadow, so you can wear them alone or layer other shadows on top of them with—you guessed it—still no creasing, smudging or fading!
Paint Pots are just one of those miraculous products that I can’t live without, and I honestly can’t believe it’s taken me this long to sing their praises for you!

Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel
First of all, it’s blue, which we just think is fun and different. But what we really love? It’s extremely cooling (and not just the second you apply, but for a long while afterward), and it has the consistency of a cream. It’s just a bonus that it perks up our tired eyes in no time.

Philosophy Eyes Wide Open
This unassuming little while tube packs a major punch. It smooths and depuffs skin instantly, not to mention it has a delightful cooling quality.

Bliss Baggage Handler Eye Gel
We love every Bliss product just for the names alone! And this one definitely does what it says—it makes all that under-eye baggage just disappear, thanks to cucumber extract and algae extract! Especially great for long flights.

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel
The name alone makes you know it’s going to make your under-eye area look and feel its best, wouldn’t you agree? Plus, it smells like refreshing cucumbers and has an innovative pump design.

The Art of Shaving Eye Gel
The chamomile scent is utterly relaxing, which makes this perfect right before bed (why not get the under-eye bags under control while you’re getting your beauty rest, right?).

Peter Thomas Roth Power K Eye Rescue
Definitely the most science project-like of the bunch! This eye gel is formulated with Co-Q-10 in the appearance of caviar-like beads, which smooth into the skin upon impact and protect the eye area from aging.

Tentation is just the most gorgeous shade of rich, deep fuchsia. But what really sets it apart is the gorgeous whitish silver shimmer. It’s one of those colors that you just can’t stop staring at once you paint your nails! We picked it for a pedicure for an upcoming trip to Los Angeles—and we especially love it for a pedicure, but it’s equally as beautiful as a manicure.
And, really, what’s better than a bottle of Chanel nail polish? (Answer: nothing.)
Chanel Tentation retails for $27 at chanel.com.
