Beauty Products That Crashed The Web, Sold Out, Have Wait Lists! These Are The “Rockstars” Of Beauty

by on Monday, November 19th, 2018 with



Have you ever tried to purchase a hot new beauty product everyone’s buzzing about only to learn there’s a waitlist BUT it’s NOT even out yet! Or you think “I’ll mobilize and head to the store,” you get there and it’s sold out! Or you try to get on the brand’s web site, but too many beauty junkies had the same idea as you, and you all wound up crashing the site.  Needless to say, I’m fascinated by this beauty conundrum and phenomenon. So I researched these most sought after stars of the beauty industry, talked to insiders at each company and thought you might love these 6 tips on how to and when to stalk these products this holiday season.



DEMAND: Commonly SOLD OUT on the brand’s web site.  I checked Instagram a couple days ago and a recent Coconut Deo post said it’s “back in stock!” So we’re in business, IF we move with alacrity. However, this is why I suggest purchasing a couple at a time.

PRICE: $14


YOUR ARMPIT WILL SMELL LIKE: Faintly like a tropical, fruity vacation – it’s really pleasant!

BEST BEAUTY TAG LINE EVER: Sweat is natural, aluminum on your bod is not. Unjunk your funk and break up with antiperspirant! (uhhh GENIUS!)

AWARD WINNING: This a current, reigning “Allure BEST Of Beauty Winner 2018!” (This is like winning a Golden Globe Or Academy Award to an actor)

WHY: A stand out in the natural deodorant category for the simple reason: It Works! The vast majority don’t, I’ve tried them and an hour later your underarms don’t smell great. This natural, coconut-oil based, aluminum and silicon free armpit arsenal packs an odor protecting punch and countless Reviewers state that it’s effective in blocking odor and applies smooth AND clear (I second this). Translation = it doesn’t leave marks on your clothes and is never sticky but outlasts your longest day. So it thoroughly delivers on the brand’s claims.


DEMAND:  The brand revealed to Allure that the Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream, a giant version of its best-selling original body hydrator, sold out almost immediately after it was available for purchase earlier this fall. In fact, after its initial September 19 launch, the 500-millimeter jar — which is priced at $75 (valued at $100) — WAS GONE IN JUST 2 HOURS! Sol de Janeiro says there was even an 800-PLUS WAITLIST for the cream’s restock. Get it now, before it sells out again!

PRICE: $75, $100 value (It’s 16.9 Ounces!)


SCENT:  Well the scent alone convinced me to try it. Yes, it smells this good when you open the tub up. Addictively scented with Cheirosa ’62 notes of Pistachio and Salted Caramel.

WHY THE BUM RUSH? Pun intended!

If you’ve been living under a rock and are not in this beauty loop, YES!!! this yellow tub of Brazilian goodness is crafted specifically for you rear end/booty and any other targeted spot on your body you want to tone, firm and smooth. However what’s different this holiday and coinciding with their mantra: bigger IS better… you get more than double the Bum Bum Cream in this limited edition holiday offering. It’s Infused with all-powerful, caffeine-rich Guaraná extract and Bum Bum’s skin loving cocktail of: Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí and Coconut Oil. They also blend in a hint of light reflecting mica to further filter and diffuse light over your body so you look your most sleek and confident from Thanksgiving straight into the new year. Now go shake what your mama gave you and with a new found pride and confidence.


DEMAND: This All-In-One portable razor sold SOLD OUT at Ulta not once BUT twice after launching and just last week Sphynx became the first indie brand to launch in the Target razor aisle.

PRICE: $15

SHOP: or In Store in the razor aisle.


Step 1, Turn the dial to reveal the water spray bottle. Mist this over skin to get skin ready to be shaved. Yes, this is refillable when it runs out.

Step 2: Emulsify Dry Skin W/the coconut + shea butter stick (it’s melt proof! so it’s safe in your car on a hot summer day!). Think: this replaces your good old shaving cream.


Step 3: Dial Up One Of Two, Single Blade Razors when ready to get your shave on!

It’s the WORLD’S FIRST All-In-One portable razor. Sometimes you run out of the house and realize you missed a spot shaving (Or have forgotten to shave all together). Even if it’s just a few hairs on your ankle or you need to touch up your bikini line, this convenient shaving savior is the solution to shaving ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. Because lets be honest who hasn’t been there? Why do you need to suffer the embarrassment of being at an important meeting, wearing a sleeveless top and suddenly you realize you forgot to shave under your arms and you just raised them as you were talking! Sphynx can spare you the “oh my God” moment. Sphynx is cute, compact and so much fun! This portable razor is TSA approved and your new must-have travel buddy. The disc has everything built right into it from a spray bottle to coconut/shea butter stick to two razors – one’s a backup. You literally dial up (turn the huge dial) each one as you’re ready for that step. No need for shave cream. When done you rinse the razor off or wipe it down and replace the cap on top and off you go. Comes in 3 fun colors – I respect the genius who thought this up and I want to file it under “why didn’t I think of this myself?”


DEMAND: This highlighter was previously a best-selling limited-edition product included in both the Goth-O-Graphic and Zodiac collections – which is still available just for the next year. They sold out almost immediately once they launched and stores were unable to keep them on the shelves, so Wet n’ Wild went ahead and made it a permanent product in four very wearable shades.

PRICE: $6.99

BRAND IS: Los Angeles based

SHOP: Available for $6.99 at CVS and on NOW, and at major food, drug and mass retailers beginning January 2019.



THE GLOWING DETAILS: Time for that gorgeous glow-up! Due to popular demand, wet n wild® is bringing back the Mega Glo Loose Highlighting Powder with not only new, but also fan-favorite shades that Wild Ones will go crazy over. Infused with iridescent pigments, this shimmer powder illuminates the high points of the face for an intense, radiant glow. Use it on its own or mix it with your favorite base product for an all-over-glow! This is an affordable must to have on hand this holiday season when you want to add a little shimmer to your makeup fast. It’s an easy way to take your makeup from AM to PM without a lot of effort!

MY FAVORITE: “I’m So Lit” (which is actually the best-selling “Moon Tears” shade from the Goth-O-Graphic collection. It has a mesmerizing golden tone to it)

DEMAND: According to the Japanese company, this Primer has SOLD OUT 4 TIMES since it’s launch this past Feb 2018! Whoa! At one point Allure noted it was sold out all over the world expect… Australia!

PRICE: $52



This multi-tasking skin-protecting, makeup-perfecting primer for face, eyes and lips has generated a ton of buzz because the silky formula and the velvety feel gives you a completely smooth base for foundation. But the cool things is you can also apply it to bare skin, take advantage of it’s skin evening capabilities and and skip the makeup. It’s a modern spin on a wax Geisha’s used before they applied their traditional Geisha makeup. Take a look at the laundry list of Silk Canvas Primer’s attributes (wow, it covers a ton of ground for us in this compact):

  • Blurs: Silk extracts feel nourishing on skin and instantly diminish the look of pores, fines lines and imperfections for the perfect canvas before makeup.
  • Primes: Silk powder makes makeup glide on more evenly and last longer, minimizing excess shine with a soft focus finish.
  • Protects: Protective barrier derived from botanicals acts as a barrier between makeup and skin, helping to prevent clogged pores that can lead to breakouts. Anti-pollution natural active ingredients fight immediate attack from environmental stressors and help support the skin’s barrier function to act against future attack, visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and dullness.
  • Enhances: Pink and gold pearl helps even skin tone for a healthy look.
  • Anti-aging: Hadasei-3™, a trinity of Japanese superfoods, green tea, rice and algae, visibly restores youthful radiance.


This photo made me laugh when I saw it! So there you have it… 6 of the tops internet breaking, sold out, wait listed beauty brands that’ll become your holy grail to seek out when you have a little spare time over the Thanksgiving weekend! Thanks for reading!
