Happy Treat Yo Self Day! Coined by Tom and Donna of NBC’s Parks and Recreation , October 13th is the only day of the year when it’s acceptable to splurge on “clothes, fragrances, massages, mimosas, and fine leather goods” ALL. DAY. LONG. This year, we’re adding self-indulgent beauty to that list. These five dessert-inspired products are sure to make this extravagant national holiday even sweeter!
This sugar-based lip scrub lets you treat yourself in more ways than one. The formula features fine sugar granules that exfoliate your pout, while a moisturizing blend of jojoba oil and vitamin E conditions and primes your lips for lipstick. Jeffree makes sure your taste buds also get some love by infusing Velour Lip Scrub with edible flavors like Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Rainbow Sherbert. Basically, a super-delicious pamper sesh!
Leave it to Sugarpill Cosmetics to deliver incredibly indulgent eyeshadows with sweet sounding shade names like Heart Shaped Cookie, Candy Crush and Buttercupcake. Available in both matte and shimmer finishes, expect insanely pigmented color and rich pay off for decadent eye looks with major staying power.
Each of these metallic highlighters look, apply and sound like a dream! Shades range from bright gold to icy pink with names like Marshmallow, Gumdrop, Butterscotch and Starburst. Dessert-inspired but never cake-y, the Sugar Glow kit delivers 4 finely milled colors for effortlessly smooth application and a blinding glow.
We’re pretty sure Too Faced has mastered the art of decadent makeup. After all, they have a line of candy bar eye shadow palettes with shades that actually smell like chocolatey goodness. Their newest edition to the family? The Peaches & Dream Makeup Set! Experience a feast for the senses with peach-scented eyeshadow, creamy highlighter, blush, bronzer and a brightly colored lip oil for a sweet treat your whole face can enjoy!
Why settle for a slice when Benefit lets you have the whole cake! This adorable three-tiered tin holds mini versions of Benefit’s best selling Gimme Brow + Brow-Volumizing Gel, The POREfessional Face Primer, and Roller Lash Mascara. With each product individually wrapped, we think Confection Cuties is the perfect way to get a sugar rush on Treat Yo Self Day!
