Chanel eye mask



Remember the days when you had to physically go to a drugstore or department store to buy beauty products? (Am I showing my age?) Luckily, it's no longer 1999, and adding to our beauty product collection gets easier and easier, thanks to e-tailers like Net-a-Porter, Nordstrom, and Violet Grey. These three sites have some of the internet's most epic selections of beauty products, from mainstream brands to more under-the-radar ones.

I know that it's a strong statement to refer to something as "life-changing," but if you've ever found a beauty product that not only affects your appearance but also affected your confidence level, then you know that "life-changing" isn't always an overstatement. Yes, 42 items might seem like a lot, but these beauty products are seriously chock-full of powerful ingredients that always receive tons of strong buzz, so why not put them all in one place? Keep scrolling to shop them all and find out why they're amazing (in case you haven't already heard a million times).
