PEOPLE Style Editors Designed 3 Makeup Pouches -- and They're Awesome!

Nov/20/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We’re so excited to share these zip pouches with you! Editors here at PEOPLE came up with three fun sayings, which are printed on the designs. And we also dreamt up the look of the mini carryalls: canvas with a rose-gold dipped-paint effect and a matching rose-gold zipper. They’re perfect for toting around makeup, but they’re cute enough to use as a casual clutch. Oh, and by the way, the pouches are just 35 bucks, but each one comes stuffed with over $100 worth of beauty products. Can you say, perfect holiday gift? (Can you also say, uhh, I’m keeping this for myself?)

Olivia Wilde: 'Gift Giving Is One of My Love Languages'

Nov/13/2014 at 03:06 PM ET

We wish Olivia Wilde was part of our office holiday grab bag, because the star knows how to give a meaningful gift. Wilde’s charity Conscious Commerce (founded with her friend Barbara Burchfield to highlight stylish, ethically-made products) has partnered with another company we love: Birchbox! And it’s one box you’re definitely going to want to find under the tree this year.

Finally! High-Quality Makeup Brushes That Aren't Crazy-Expensive

Nov/10/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

When it comes to makeup brushes, we find that you either have to spend a lot of money (like, a lot) or you have to settle for pretty mediocre ones that lose their bristles every time you use them, are rough on your face and feel stiff. We were just about ready to bite the bullet and throw down serious cash when we discovered this set, which features five brushes of varying sizes. It’s $35 if you’ve shopped our videos before — under 30 bucks if you’re a first-time shopper (using the code STYLE15 at checkout).

The set comes with five brushes designed for applying bronzer, blush, shadow, lip color and gel liner, plus contouring and highlighting.

It’s all about the bristles: They’re supersoft and are gentle enough for sensitive skin. Also, you don’t have to worry about them falling out. And as you’ve noticed if you watch the video, the brushes come in a cute little zip pouch. It’s ideal for carrying the brushes when you’re traveling, but the pouch is also perfect if you want to tote makeup in your bag.

Shop the brushes by going here or clicking on the product in the video above. If you’re new to Joyus, enter STYLE15 at checkout the bring the price of the set down from $35 to $29.75. And shop more stuff editors love here.

The Jewelry Trend We're Loving on Stars

Nov/06/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

Serpent-inspired jewelry is all over the red carpet. (Naomi Watts, Jessica Alba and Sophia Bush are huge fans of the trend.) So when we saw this snake ring, we were immediately intrigued. And then when we saw the price, we immediately took out our credit cards.

The chic piece of jewelry is by the same label as the XO ring we introduced you to (a piece also inspired by Hollywood trendsetters). And it has the same luxe feel for a fraction of the price.

You can choose from three finishes — gold, silver and gunmetal — and each style really sparkles thanks to the chic pave detailing. The best part? It’s under $50 for first time Joyus shoppers. Just enter STYLE15 at checkout. Now all you have to do is click here and add it to your cart. Oh, and then make sure to show it off on Instagram.

Alexis Bittar Designs the Prettiest Makeup Brushes Ever for Sephora

Oct/16/2014 at 03:09 PM ET

Celeb-loved jewelry designer Alexis Bittar is crossing over to the beauty world with a much-anticipated, limited-edition collection of makeup accessories that will make you feel so fancy. Just like Bittar’s signature jewels, the brushes are made of lucite, 24-karat-plated gold and Swarovski crystal embellishments. The collection includes three pieces: a full brush set with a stand to display them in, a touch-up brush and travel wrap and an impossibly glamorous compact. Let’s take a look.

Since we’re total smoky eye addicts, we’re loving the Beauty Brush Set and Stand ($175). It has every tool you could need to create perfectly sultry, smoked-out lids: a shadow brush, smudger and angled liner brush. It also comes with two complexion essentials: a powder brush and an angled brush for blush and contouring. “Luxury is in the detail, not in the price point. that’s my belief,” Bittar tells PEOPLE. “For example, designing a stand for the brush set made sense. Aesthetically it’s a throwback to 1950s women’s boudoirs and how they would display perfumes.”

The Most Genius Water Bottle Ever -- Now in Gorgeous New Finishes

Sep/22/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

When we first shared these bottles (which keep drinks cold for a full 24 hours and hot for 12 hours) with you, they sold out almost instantly. And now that the water bottles are offered in three gorgeous finishes, we have a feeling they’re going to fly off the proverbial shelves yet again. What we’re saying is: If you want one of these, you better move fast. And if you want one of these with a discount (15% off the price!), you better scroll down to get our exclusive coupon code.

It seems odd to say what we’re about to say considering we’re talking about a water bottle, but here goes: We can’t walk down the street carrying one of these without getting complimented and asked, “Where did you get that?” Well, here’s our answer: You can shop it right here. (And if you’re a first-time Joyus customer, get an extra 15% off by entering STYLE15 at checkout.)

And if you’ve watched the above video, you’ve realized that these water bottles don’t just look good; they’re also designed in a pretty genius way that keeps beverages cold for a whole day and hot for half a day. That means you can leave mug of coffee or tea sitting out in the morning and when you get home from work, it’ll still be warm. We also love the bottle because it doesn’t create condensation (perfect for when you want to throw it in your bag and not get everything else in there all wet).

There are two sizes and three finishes to choose from — this editor has three (one for water, one for wine; it’s great for outdoor picnics or BYOB restaurants since you don’t have to worry about breakage or white vino getting tepid, plus one wooden one that she uses as a vase).

Which style do you plan to get?
