Urban Decay Makeup Palette

Urban Decay just recently released its "On the Run" mini eyeshadow line, and it's already inspired the same devoted following as their Naked palettes. The collection features three different travel-size palettes — Bailout, Detour, and Shortcut — that each come with six neutral shades, a "transformer" hue, and a bold color. We love "Vice" in the Bailout option, but if blue is more your vibe, then "Plunge" in the Detour palette won't disappoint.

Morphe Brush Set

Beauty blogger Jaclyn Hill collaborated with Morphe to bring you this eight-piece eye makeup brush set. Like the Sigma Beauty set above, this kit also features the brush names on the handles to take the guesswork out of your morning routine (helpful if you're applying your makeup while you're half asleep — we've been there). The brushes were made to be used with Morphe eyeshadow palettes, but you can use them with any eye makeup to blend, highlight, and refine your look.
