30 Items That Already Stole My Heart (and My Credit Card) This Month

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

Let's be real: There's always something on the internet that I want to buy. But lately, my focus has (slightly) strayed from the typical jackets and sweaters that I've been accumulating for the past three months. Beauty and wellness purchases are dominating my browsers and bank statements with no signs of slowing down. Can you blame me? I want to kick off the new year with the best possible skincare, makeup, and home essentials, and I want that for you, too. So below, I gathered 30 products that I'll be purchasing for the first time or repurchasing in the month of January.

Makeup and Skincare

We're only a few days into the new year, and Makeup by Mario's first-ever foundation is taking the internet by storm. I don't think I've ever opened a new tab and added a product to my cart so quickly.

I received a sample of this and could not believe the glow. The full size is officially on its way to me. 

This gel-based moisturizer gives your skin a dewy glow and keeps it hydrated in all kinds of conditions. It combats blue light, air travel, pollution, mask wearing, and so much more.

The oil-to-gloss formula sold me. I'll be digging for this at the bottom of my purse in the next five to seven business days.

My fellow editor Natalie Gray Herder is a Flowerbomb fan and describes this scent as warm, sweet, floral, and expensive. I don't need any more convincing.

I'm determined to treat my under-eyes better in 2023. These eye masks are hydrating and give that well-rested look after just 10 minutes.

It's $15 and changed my makeup routine for the better.

I haven't seen a single Get Ready With Me video that doesn't include a powder puff. The shape allows for maximum precision when baking your under-eye area.

Incredible shade range, full-coverage, 24-hour wear and an oil-free formula. To confirm, it checks every box.

I saw Caitie Bellamy (my boss and beauty extraordinaire) reapplying this lip serum, and off to Sephora I went. It glides on so smoothly and creates the perfect shine.

My blush application is heavier than most, so I love a stick formula that I can reapply throughout the day. 

I've watched far too many before-and-after videos showing tremendous hair growth thanks to this oil. I'm taking it from my Explore page to my vanity.

The Almost Lipstick in Black Honey stole my heart in 2022. This gloss is up next.

It's the innovation for me. This clear blush changes based on your skin tone and the pH of your skin. 

Apply after toner for extra hydration. Bonus points: It can be used on the lips to soften and plump.

I would like to transition from sponges to brushes in the new year for more precise application. This brush is TikTok approved.

I experimented a lot with hair products last year. This is one that I'm bound to repurchase this month.

True story: I had a pimple on my cheek, and I sprayed this all over my face before I went to bed. When I woke up the next day, my pimple had vanished. 

I've never tried a product from this brand that I didn't love. The blush duos are next on my list.


Anyone else feel 10 times more relaxed when there's a (chic) diffuser in the room?

If mental health and wellness are your top priorities for 2023, Talkspace is an affordable and flexible resource that provides online therapy sessions with licensed therapists. Designed to fit into every lifestyle, Talkspace's therapy help is available to you every day, any time of day.

The best part of working out is showing up in a cute set. Sorry—I don't make the rules.

My NYC strolls are getting a major upgrade.

What's a cozy winter night without a cute candle on your nightstand?

I'm taking beauty sleep to new heights in 2023. Dermatologists, plastic surgeons, hairdressers and beauty experts highly recommend this.

Meet the one product I couldn't stop talking about last year. I repurchase these every month for better sleep and skin.
