But before you bust out your favorite pair of slide sandals, consider picking up a new nail polish.

Sure, you could opt for a basic ballerina pink , but why not invest in a new statement color? Rose gold remains a favorite , but this season it’s gone galactic, with many brands injecting the millennial-approved hue with flecks of shimmer. We’d also happily hail a taxicab-yellow colored manicure, as we’ve seen the traffic-stopping shade grace the nails of many an Instagram It girl. If you gravitate to more natural hues, you’ll swoon over an earthy bronze or muted mushroom.

Keep reading to see the shades you won’t want to take off all Spring.

Get Hyped, Y'All: Storybook Cosmetics Is Finally Coming to Ulta!

Storybook Cosmetics, aka the source of our favorite fandom-themed beauty products, is officially coming to , and we’re practically bursting at the seams with excitement. The indie brand, which was founded by three identical triplets, has been a direct-to-consumer label since its inception. That means this is a pretty big f*cking deal for the women-owned company (and it’s also a big f*cking deal for our paychecks, which will now be spent entirely on ).

In case you’re not familiar with Storybook Cosmetics, it’s the source of those crazy-cool makeup products you’ve likely seen while scrolling away on Instagram, like the Harry Potter lipsticks that stole our hearts, that totally fetch Mean Girls palette , and the enchanted rose-inspired makeup brushes that practically broke the internet last year. Oh, and did we mention that all of its products are cruelty-free? Yep, Storybook Cosmetics is truly giving the people what they want.

MAC Will Launch an Iridescent Glitter Pigment That's Fit For a Unicorn

London Fashion Week is in full force, and it’s delivering some noteworthy beauty moments – not to mention the DL on about-to-launch products. Backstage at the London College of Fashion show, a new iridescent glitter pigment from MAC Cosmetics was spotted at makeup artist Claire Mulleady’s table, and its existence is sending us into a unicorn-induced frenzy.

For the look, makeup artists combined the pearlescent glitter with gloss and liberally painted it on top of models’ eyelids with an eye shadow brush. Let’s just say these are the kinds of moments KiraKira+ developers thought about when creating their app. So sparkly, so pretty.

Iridescent White will be added to the brand’s existing lineup of glitter pigments in the coming months, and we’re guessing it’ll be about $22 like the other sparkling options .

Recall Alert! This Popular Hair Dryer Could Be a Burn Hazard

If you prefer your bathroom fire-free and your hands unburned, then you might want to invest in a new hair dryer. That’s because the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has just recalled a popular heat tool sold at Target, Amazon, Groupon, and other retailers. If you own an ISO Beauty Ionic Pro 2000 dryer, it’s time to turn it in.

According to the recall notice , this news impacts owners of 73,000 dryers sold between March 2013 and January 2018. The brand has received 35 reports of “dryers sparking or smoking” and “two reports of flames coming from the dryers.” Three people reported burns to their hands or fingers as a result of using the Ionic Pro.

If you’re unsure if you have this specific model, here are some details on what it looks like. “ISO” or “Proliss” is printed on the bottom rear of the tools. The model number is HD-1820. The Ionic Pro was sold in black, white, white pearl, peacock, white zebra, pink leopard, blue, and giraffe prints.

Should you own one, you’re urged to stop using it and contact ISO Beauty . The brand will teach you how to remove the faulty cord and will send you a new, safe replacement.

This unsettling news comes just after Amazon pulled an OraCorp hair dryer from its virtual shelves after a customer shared a video of it shooting flames. If this makes you want to air-dry your hair tonight, here are some great styling products .

This Millennial Pink Caboodles Case Is Giving Us More Nostalgia Than We Can Handle

Attention, ’90s-lovers. The ultimate piece of precious nostalgia is here just in time . Way more than your run-of-the-mill makeup case, the Caboodles Vintage Pretty Makeup Case ($10) is rife with retro flavor. If you were lucky enough to have grown up in the ’90s, then you likely had one that housed everything from slap bracelets to lipstick you shared with your BFF and wore only when your mom wasn’t looking.

You can capture the innocence of the decade by picking up your very own throwback makeup case. Store everything in it from palettes to jewelry, and proudly watch as friends shout, “OMG, I totally had one of those.” They likely did, but you, friend, you get to own one now.

I Finally Found a Dry Shampoo That Won't Make My Brunette Hair Chalky – and It's Only $9

I am a devout user of dry shampoo , but many formulas leave my brunette hair looking like an 18th century powdered wig. The chalkiness makes my dark locks appear dull and faded. Luckily, I finally found a solution that doesn’t give me Marie Antoinette vibes. Batiste Dry Shampoo ($9) in Beautiful Brunette is one of the bestselling hair products on Amazon. It has almost 3,000 reviews and 67 percent of customers give it five stars.

The secret to the formula is that it’s made with a brown tint. The color works for any hue of brunette hair, cool or warm. On top of finally resolving the powdery problem I was facing, it also immediately banishes excess oil and gives my strands tons of volume. The clean, floral fragrance smells amazing; it’s the perfect pick-me-up in between washes.

All you have to do is hold the bottle about a foot away from your hair, spray it on your roots, and lightly massage it in. Once you’re finished, make sure to wash your hands so you don’t get any brown residue on your clothes. After that, you can style your locks however you please.

“I have tried other brands of dry shampoo and will never go back,” one customer said. “This is by far the best. It goes on so easily. I barely have to brush it out at all. The brown tint matches my hair color perfectly. It works like magic to eliminate oil in my super fine, thin hair and I do not have to wash everyday, which is my goal. Highly recommended.”

This stuff changed my life – I’m begging you to give it a shot. I suggest buying the three-pack because you’re going to be utterly addicted.

I Discovered This Life-Changing Makeup Brush Cleaner (on Amazon!), and It's So Addicting

I used to clean my brushes by hand and leave them out to dry overnight; the whole process from beginning to end was a tedious task I dreaded. I recently found this genius Wloomm Electric Makeup Brush Cleaner ($30) on Amazon, and now I can’t imagine living without it.

When I received it, I was shocked by how great the quality of the product was. It comes with a spinner, clear cup, eight different brush holders, a stand for everything, and even a velvet slip cover for the wand. The rubber holders vary in size and work on all my tools.

I couldn’t wait to use it – I quickly filled the glass bowl with an inch of water and started cleansing. You simply stick a brush in the water, press a button to make the brush spin, and watch all your makeup seep out as the water changes color. I can’t describe how weirdly satisfying this is. You’ll also be grossed out when you realize all the grime that can come out of your tools. After spinning, you lift your brush out of the water and let it dry. Within minutes, it will be cleaner than ever!

Not only is it fun to use, but it was by far the fastest and most efficient process I’ve ever experienced. I can’t imagine cleaning them the old-fashioned way ever again. Get this and it will change your beauty game forever!

Urban Decay Is Launching Dual-Ended Rainbow Mascaras That Look Damn Fine

Is multicolored mascara considered business casual? That’s something you might want to Google (@Linkedin, help a girl out!), because Urban Decay will launch a gaggle of vibrant, crayon-hued mascara that you’re going to want to wear every damn day. The brand just announced that it will drop five shades of the brand new Double Team Colored Mascara come March, and suddenly that month can’t come soon enough.

Urban Decay founder Wende Zomnir gave up the scoop in an Instagram post detailing the lash-enhancer’s multiple features . As she wrote, “One side [of the mascara] has a cream shade, and the other a coordinating shimmer shade. Dimensional!” Wende also wrote that she loves swiping it over her brows for a rainbow effect .

The electric hues are giving us major flashbacks to the 1980s. Gonzo is a midnight blue, Deep End is a mermaid’s tail sea green, and Junkshow is a pop of bright fuchsia. Of course, since purple is basically the team mascot for Urban Decay, that particular shade is represented in the plum-colored Vice. There is also a dual option, Dime/Goldmine, which holds a silver on one end and gold on the other. Read on to see each one in action!

Amazon Sells a Rose Gold Makeup Brush Set For Just $12 – and Shoppers Are Obsessed

As Kylie Jenner reminded us back in December , makeup brush sets don’t come cheap. But if you want to beat your face and still make rent, we’re happy to report that Amazon shoppers have found the tools for you. According their reviews, there is one set that won’t cost you your life savings – in fact, it rings in for less than most large pizzas do.

People are currently losing their sh*t over this 14-piece BS-Mall Rose Gold Makeup Brush Set ($12). Despite the low cost, the tools currently have a five-star average review from happy customers.

The first thing you’ll notice when you peruse the comments section is how so many people swear the bristle quality does not match how inexpensive it is. As one fan wrote, “I’ve worked at the Estée Lauder counter and used several high-end brand brushes. I would definitely say these are comparable to high-end brushes.”

Although another reviewer noted that the brushes have somewhat of a plastic smell upon unboxing, they noted that “After a quick wash the smell was 100% gone.” What wasn’t gone after the rinse? Any brush hairs. “I gave them a pretty aggressive wash and the brush and handle feel very sturdy and well made,” the reviewer summarized. “Definitely give these a try if you hate spending a ton of money but want good quality brushes.”

Need any more convincing? Head on over to Amazon , where there are currently over 1,000 reviews of this set. Or just go ahead and click add to cart – considering this will only set you back 80 cents per brush.

NYX Is Giving Away Free Mascara – but There's a Catch

Be honest – when was the last time you switched out your mascara? If you’re a good noodle, it’s advised that you throw your old tubes away after three months . We know, we know, it’s hard saying goodbye. But luckily, NYX will make things a little easier for you. For one day only, you can trade in your old tube for a brand spankin’ new Worth the Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara ($8).

On Saturday, Feb. 3, pop into your local NYX store bearing the lash-plumper you currently use. You’ll be able to switch that out for a Worth the Hype mascara, thus saving your wallet for the next three months.

But be sure to go early – only the first 100 customers who walk through the doors on Feb. 3 will be eligible for this offer. It’s first come, first served, so you’ll have to sacrifice hitting your snooze button for a free mascara. (For the record: most NYX stores open at 10 a.m., but be sure to check with your local one just in case.)

Here’s some incentive to wake up early. As you can see in the image ahead, Worth the Hype can amp up lashes to a natural but flush finish. There’s no clumping here, just opaque black coverage that makes the model’s eyes look gorgeously huge.

In short: get thee to an NYX!
