2. Snap Razor, $9.99 Gillette Venus. This razor is perfectly compact for the girl on-the-go. With warm weather approaching, it's time to stop hiding our beautiful legs and with 5 curve-hugging blades, the Snap will leave a smooth finish. Throw it in your gym bag for touch ups after a workout or in your makeup bag for quick fixes before a night out.

3. Essential Lip Stain in "Pink Petal", $2.00 e.l.f Cosmetics. If you're looking for a no-fuss way to bring some color to your face, try e.l.f's Lip Stains.

The Total Moisture variety is infused with pure oat extract to help revive dull skin.
