There are many things we’re hoping stay in 2018 forever: the Tide Pod Challenge, Kanye West’s twitter rants, and restaurants tricking people with a name-change publicity stunt. Nice try, IHOb. But, you know what can stick around? Chrissy Teigen ‘s clapbacks, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and shiny new beauty products — because, honestly, who could ever get tired of all that?
Just over a week into 2019, and Sephora has already dropped a ton of new stuff — on top of better Beauty Insider perks and some seriously impressive birthday gifts. As exciting as it is, seeing all those new products on the shelves can be a little overwhelming — especially if your brain is still in resting mode from the holidays. That’s why we’re breaking down what’s new and what’s actually worth adding to your collection, ahead. Trust us, you’ll take these products over a pancake house burger any day.

Adjusting to life after the holidays (and all the festivities) can be tough, and Rihanna understands that better than anyone. Which is why, we like to think, she chose this time of year to launch her groundbreaking new concealer line in 50 shades. According to the superstar, it’s “the cure for bags, dark circles, hangovers, and bad decisions.” We’ll take two.
