Selena Gomez has never been shy about being public with her mental health. There was the 2022 documentary titled Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me that shed light on the star’s diagnosis of bipolar disorder and she frequently talks about her battle with lupus that has affected both her mind and body.
October 10th then holds a special place for her—it is World Mental Health Day and is the exact time when she has partnered with Sephora to launch the Make a Rare Impact campaign. On that day, the beauty giant will be making a big move by donating 100% of Rare Beauty product sales to the Rare Impact fund, an organisation created by Gomez in 2020 “with the goal of increasing access to mental health services and education for young people, which is something I wish I had when I was younger”.
The organisation has since reached more than 740,000 youths, 10,000 teachers and administrators, and 367 educational systems and your purchase tomorrow could positively affect one more person in need.
Here, we list five of Rare Beauty’s best products for you to add to your cart. Trust us, you’re doing good and feeling good after. As for how good you’ll look, we guarantee you’ll love what these products can do like a love song, baby.
239 reviews on Sephora and a near-perfect score of 4.7 stars out of five don’t do enough justice to this eyeshadow palette, a mix of matte and shimmers that smoothly glide onto the lids like butter. The mattes are just the right texture of dry and the shimmers are never glittery which means every application is perfect even sans primer.

Rare Beauty’s liquid blush is mentioned in nearly every The Last Thing beauty interview with comments ranging from how it imbues an “ever-coveted, melts-right-in finish” to its ability to “always makes my face look fresh and luminous“. I’d like to add one more reason—how it multitasks as a blusher, eyeshadow, and lipstick.

The highlight of the year, or shall we say highlighter, is this powder that gives a glass-like glow while enhancing the skin’s natural warmth and light all with just one quick application. You can purchase a brush from the brand for strategic application but to be honest, your fingers will suffice.

I would like to consider this eyeliner as the Pilot Dr. Grip of all eyeliners—ergonomic to use, quick drying, and ensures a precise straight line whenever you use it. Its formula also lasts and lasts in our heat and humidity but miraculously, is removable with just one swipe of a micellar water soaked cotton pad.

Just one dot of the foundation’s doe-foot applicator is enough to cover half your face with a serum-like fluid that covers imperfections without dryness or caking. Not impressed? Said coverage lasts up to 16 hours and doesn’t transfer onto surfaces like your phone, tissue paper, or the shoulder of someone you’re hugging.
