Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
We could talk up this mascara until we were blue in the face and it still wouldn’t be enough. It curls, it lengthens, it thickens, it comes in both waterproof and non-waterproof formulas and a bunch of colors, it generally makes eyes look amazing. Plus it’s in every makeup artist’s kit, so you just really can’t go wrong.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
Moisturizer. Sunscreen. Foundation/concealer. The prettiest hint of tint. Is there anything this little pinkish taupe tube doesn’t cover? (The answer would be no.)

Clear nail polish stops runs in your tights.
Okay, maybe everyone knows this one by now. But we think it deserves reiterating, simply because THIS. TRICK. WORKS. No matter how big or small the run, a dollop of clear nail polish (like Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Clear, $3.99 at drugstore.com) will nip it in the bud. Guaranteed.
Baby powder gets rid of shoe odors.
So you absolutely love the pair of shoes you’ve been walking around in for two weeks, but there’s some bad news. They stink. And it’s not just noticeable to you. That’s where Johnson’s Baby Powder ($4 at diapers.com) comes in handy. A little sprinkle of it in your insoles and no one will be able to smell anything, least of all you.
Baby shampoo gets stains out of clothes. So does dishwashing liquid.
Another baby product that does double duty? Johnson’s Baby Shampoo ($4.49 at diapers.com)! Just a little dab on the affected area and then a rigorous hand washing will get those stains right out. But if you don’t have any baby shampoo on hand, don’t fret—because dishwashing liquid works just as well! Think about it—it gets grease out of your dishes, why not your clothes?
