According to the description, this little gem was created to
make applying lip gloss a breeze, but I think we all know the real reason for its existence. This
built-in LED light-up lipgloss was designed to aid beauty babes everywhere in
our fight against 2012. No power? No problem. Not only will we be able to
efficiently apply our gloss, but we will also be able to use it as a makeshift
flashlight in case the fam forgot to stock up on batteries. Score!

Who knows what kind of crazy stuff is going to happen, so in
the spirit of being prepared… and just in case running water becomes a thing of
the past—stock up on dry shampoo. There’s nothing worse than greasy hair, and
regardless of the perils that await us, we simply cannot afford to let the end
of the world win the battle against perfect tresses. Keep the shine alive with
dry shampoo and hey, did ya know dry shampoo could double as deodorant?
