This year’s list is dedicated to small, Black-owned businesses like Pear Nova and The Wrap Life. Plus, it’s all available on Amazon.
Every year, Oprah Winfrey famously picks her favorite things. This year, probably more than ever, we could use a heavy sprinkling of all the joy it brings. This time around, it’s even more special because the vast majority of her picks are from small, Black-owned businesses. The list includes some more well-known brands like Mented Cosmetics and more under-the-radar ones like 2•4•1 Cosmetics.
Conveniently, all of her favorite things are also on Amazon, so you can order them and get Prime two-day shipping — ideal for any last-minute procrastinating shoppers. And what better excuse is there to start your holiday shopping early than “Oprah told me to”? Of course, while the friends and family you’re shopping for will love it, you’ll probably see some things you want for yourself, so you might as well slip two of everything into your cart, just to be safe. Items are likely to start selling out, so get going and start shopping.
While the items on Oprah’s favorites list includes goodies for cooking, lounging, and caring for your pets, we’re focusing on her beauty picks. After all, self-care is more important than ever these days. Read on to see how to pamper yourself like Oprah.
PYP Perfecting Your Presence by Derrick Rutledge Limited Edition Mink Eyelash Collection
If you’re missing your professional lash extension fix, the PYP Perfecting Your Presence Limited Edition Mink Eyelash Collection by Oprah’s long-time makeup artist, Derrick Rutledge, will be a worthy replacement. The set comes with two different lash styles, 3D and a more voluminous 5D option, an applicator, and lash glue.
The Wrap Life Ribbed Stretch Bandie
The rich, earthy colors aren’t the only swoon-worthy thing about The Wrap Life’s Ribbed Stretch Bandie headbands. The ties can be knotted into a bow, tucked under, or turn the whole thing around to back and wear it as a wide bandeau. The colors were selected from the Pantone Skintone Guide and made to complement a range of complexions
FootNanny Starter Kit Bundle
Now that sandal season has officially wrapped for many of us, it’s the perfect time to get your feet in order with some serious moisturizing. The FootNanny Starter Kit Bundle combines all the essentials needed to heal dry, cracked feet. Included is the FootNanny Green Rescue Buffer to slough away dead skin, a hydrating eucalyptus cream, and a pair of white cotton socks to ensure that all of your smoothing and softening efforts last through winter. The set lasts for up to 30 uses.
Mented Holiday Faves Trio
If you haven’t had a chance to try Mented Cosmetics, the brand that launched with a goal of helping deeper skin tones find the perfect nude lip color, now’s the perfect time to give it a go. The Holiday Faves Trio is an ideal introduction to the brand’s lineup of universally flattering lipsticks. This set includes three colors: brown, pink, and pinkish-brown — all in a semi-matte, hydrating formula.
CurlMix Wash + Go System
If you haven’t yet sorted out your ideal curly hair cocktail, the CurlMix Wash + Go System is a great starting point. The four-step systems are curated to address five different hair and scalp concerns: moisture, softening, strengthening, hair growth, and there’s a variety for sensitive skin. Each system has a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in moisturizer, and a styling gel. So it’s basically a full wash-day regimen for every curl type and texture.
54 Thrones African Beauty Body Butter Gift Set
The gold packaging and bold lettering on 54 Thrones’s African Beauty Body Butter Gift Set make for a great present or stocking stuffer that can be gifted all together or broken up between multiple stockings. What’s even better is what’s inside. Two types of shea butter, one from Ghana and the other from Uganda, are blended with moisturizing coconut baobab and mango that makes this head-to-toe hydrator a dry skin savior. Each of the five tubes in the set is infused with a different scent like Moroccan rose and Egyptian lavender.
2•4•1 Cosmetics Limited Edition Holiday Lip Gloss Collection
No matter what their beauty preferences are, you usually can’t go wrong giving a quality set of lip glosses. 2•4•1 Cosmetics Limited Edition Holiday Lip Gloss Collection was created exclusively for Oprah’s Favorite Things this year and comes with six limited-edition shades that include a clear gloss, shimmery copper, shimmery dusty rose, creamy pink, a sheer plum, and a high-shine red that has hints of orange.
The Wrap Life Turbanette
For those who prefer a more traditional style headband, in the same rich colors as the previously mentioned options, then The Wrap Life Turbanette should suit your fancy. The stretchy and soft material will keep ears warm in the winter and hair from sticking to your skin during warm summers.
Pear Nova Holiday Essentials Nail Set
Everything that you need for a full manicure can be found in Pear Nova’s Holiday Essentials Nail Set. The six-piece collection includes four seasonally interchangeable nail polish shades that are of a mix of nudes, neutrals, and a deep red. There’s also a topcoat, and green tea cuticle oil in the kit.
