3 Dots of This Makeup and You'll Look Instantly More Awake

Nov/24/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We’d heard really, really good things about this cheek gel (which is between a cheek stain and a traditional blush), but it wasn’t until editors here at PEOPLE tested out the product that we finally understood what all the hype is about. Somehow, each of the three shades works on every skin tone (the brand explains that the formula uses “Color Smart Technology;” we say it’s just beauty magic). And the product doesn’t just give your cheeks a glowy, flushed look; dabbing on three dots of the gel then blending also manages to perk up your whole face, making you look like the kind of person who sleeps over eight hours every night and wakes up every morning super refreshed. Now do you understand why women are so crazy about the stuff?

In the same way that swiping on a coat of mascara instantly gives you a more awake and more put-together look, this Perfekt cheek gel counteracts any lingering signs of sleepiness or dragging-ass-ness (yes, that’s the technical term). Here’s how you put it to use: Smile so that the apples of your cheeks are easily identifiable. Then dab on a row of dots starting at the center of your cheeks and extending to just below your temples, on the outside of each eye. Use a finger to tap the gel until it blends.

The color lasts all day without budging since it’s not a powder, but it’s also impossible to mess up and you don’t run the risk of clown face since it’s not a stain.

We love combining the colors and using a lighter shade just below a darker one to create a highlighting effect. And like we say in the video, in a pinch, you can use these as a lip stain as well.

Shop the three colors here or by clicking on the product below the video. If you’ve never bought anything on Joyus.com, enter STYLE15 to get an extra 15% off your order.

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?)

The Most Comfortable Ballet Flats You'll Ever Wear -- in Exclusive Colors

Nov/17/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

Style editors here at PEOPLE and staffers at Joyus (our partner in the shoppable videos you see on our site each week) are pretty crazy about Yosi Samra ballet flats. Our infatuation with the brand is two-part: They’re really, really comfortable and supportive — almost unheard of in a ballet flat — and they’re also very chic, which is probably why a ton of celebs wear them. Well, we took our love of Yosi Samra to the next level: We teamed up with them to design our very own flats in exclusive color ways. There’s a black with a silver toe and heel, and a nude with a rose-gold toe and heel — and you can’t get these anywhere but right here.

The video above is the only place you can shop the flats and right here on PEOPLE.com is the only place you can shop the flats with an exclusive discount (if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper). Just enter STYLE15 at checkout to bring the price down to $68.

And hey, we know that’s not exactly supercheap for a pair of flats, but there’s a reason budget-conscious women are fans of Yosi Samras: They’re comfy enough to wear all day, every day — no blisters, no chafing, no sore balls of the foot or heels. Totally worth the splurge in our book.

Click on the product in the video or go here to order the shoes.

We Tried a Ton of Jumpsuits and This Is Officially the Most Flattering One

Nov/13/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We’ve been hunting for the perfect black jumpsuit for a long time. Like, a really long time. The length of time might have something to do with the fact that our standards are really high. The jumpsuit has to be perfect: crazy-flattering (on a variety of body types, not just tall thin ones), sexy, wearable with a bra we already own (no shopping for some wacky, uncomfortable bra or stick-on situation), comfortable and dance-friendly, not more than $100 and machine washable. Yes, machine washable. We told you: We’re demanding. Well, it took a while, but we finally found one. Behold, the perfect jumpsuit:

So, let’s recap: It’s flattering. We had a bunch of staffers try this on and they all loved how they looked in the design. The material is stretchy, but by no means skin-tight — it skims your curves in just the right way.

It’s sexy. Check out that neckline.

And yet: It doesn’t require some insane bra.

It’s comfortable (see: earlier note on stretchy material) and dance-friendly (take it from this editor, who broke out some of her best moves in the jumpsuit).

It costs 100 bucks — less if you use our exclusive discount code, STYLE15, which gets you 15% off, bringing the price down to $85.

And yes, it’s true: This jumpsuit is machine washable. Can we get a hallelujah?

Shop it by clicking on the product in the video or by going here.

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.
