They come in four different color combinations – not that middle schoolers use any discretion as to what shade is best for them, but it’s the thought that counts. Available at Sephora for only $10/stick

Something out of the ordinary: a no-water-necessary facial cleanser. Babor Hy-Oil Cleanser ($32) is applied to the skin without any added moisture leaving your face super soft and squeaky clean. You then have to apply the second step, Babor Phytoactive, a customizable skin enhancer meant to make you look your best. But we actually lied about the no water part; you rinse off the last step.

But, we’re really awesome at losing things, so we’ll bust those out on special occasions and wear these ASOS Oversized Red Cat Eye Sunglasses ($22) the rest of the time.

Besides the black and brushed appearance the P’9522 offers Wi-Fi, GPS, a 2.8″ AM OLED display, fingerprint sensor and a five megapixel still/video camera with flash and digital zoom.
