For this week’s “Don’t DillyDally,” we’ve surfaced a range of things we’re sure will sell out, including heart-shaped pimple patches from Starface, a hot-pot set from Fly by Jing, and a new concealer from Ami Colé.
Fly by Jing Hot Pot Starter Set
If you’ve been dreaming of bringing hot pot to your kitchen table, well now’s your chance. Fly by Jing, which makes a very good chili crisp, has released a hot-pot starter kit, which is apparently available in very limited quantities. The set includes an electric hot pot, two silver chopsticks, two slotted spoons that conveniently interlock with the pot edge, and two packs of hot-pot base — a blend of ginger, star anise, clove, and Sichuan pepper.
Ami Colé Skin-Enhancing Concealer
Ami Colé is expanding its face-product offerings with the Skin-Enhancing Concealer, which riffs on the brand’s popular tinted moisturizer. Available in 12 shades, it offers medium to full coverage and contains good-for-skin ingredients like baobab, hibiscus, and pumpkin seed, which give it a seamless moisturizing feel.
Milk Bar Fudgy Frosting Squares
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Milk Bar has released its take on chocolates. These fudgy frosting squares are made of (as the name suggests) frosting, and they come in three flavors: birthday, double-dark chocolate, and milk-chocolate cereal milk, which also has cornflake bits mixed in. Each box comes with four of each flavor.
In keeping with the Valentine’s Day spirit, Starface has released heart-shaped pimple patches inspired by the ubiquitous conversation hearts. Each one features a little message like “Miss Me” and “I’m Cute.” The packaging can be used as a Valentine’s Card, so you can keep it for yourself or gift it to a friend.
‘Peanuts’ x Vera Bradley
Vera Bradley has collaborated with “Peanuts” on a Snoopy-themed collection inspired by vintage Valentine’s Day cards. Some things from the five-piece collection are already sold out, but this recycled-cotton makeup bag, which features Snoopy kissing a less-than-thrilled Lucy, is still up for grabs.
Everlane Colored Denim
Everlane is branching out into colored denim, giving its Way High straight-leg jeans a Pantone-colored makeover. The waist-cinching jeans are now available in five eye-catching colors — Rich Earth (a clay brown), Aqua Grey (a pale mint), Deep Lapis (a dark purple-y blue), Soy Bean (pale yellow), and Day Break (light purple).
Jeff Leatham x KKW Fragrance
KKW Fragrance teamed up with florist Jeff Leatham for another collection. This time, they’ve crafted three scents — Iconic Gardenia, Caramel Orchid, and Rare Fig — all of which come in sculptural ceramic bud vases that can be repurposed to hold a single stem. You can purchase each one separately or snag the bundle, which includes all three scents.
Snow Days Buffalo Chicken Bites
Snow Days — which makes writer Tembe Denton-Hurst’s favorite WFH snack — has added a new flavor to its lineup. The grain-free pizza bites now come in buffalo chicken and have the same zingy, spicy bite of buffalo-wing pizza without the gluten. You can buy this in packs of two (that’s 40 bites) or pick up the game-day sampler, which includes the OG cheese-and-sausage flavor.
Madewell x Backdrop
Backdrop is no stranger to collaborations (we previously covered its partnership with Dunkin’) but this is the first time the company has collaborated with a clothing brand. It teamed up with Madewell on a new color called Studio Hours — a pinkish-beige that would look nice in just about any room. In addition to paint, there’s also a capsule clothing collection, which is color-matched to the paint. Offerings include these sneakers, a bucket hat, a chore coat, and these overalls, which have a slouchy-loungy fit but still look put together.
Third Eye Blind x Smith & Cult
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Third Eye Blind’s self-titled debut, the band has released a nail-polish collection with Smith & Cult — renaming some of the brand’s most popular shades. That includes this dark metallic blue shade called Jumper, which does good too: When you purchase this shade, a portion of the proceeds goes toward True Colors United, a nonprofit that helps homeless LGBTQ+ youth.
Casper is a mattress brand that also makes sleepwear. The collection, called Snoozewear, includes a pair of slippers, a sleep mask that covers nearly half your face, and this puffy, duvet-like robe that looks like one of those pricey cocoons jacket you might find at a fancy boutique.
Abacaxi x Diaspora Co.
In additional cozy-clothing news, spice brand Diaspora Co. has teamed up with Abacaxi on a tie-dye sweat set. The set is made from lightweight French terry cotton, and each garment is dyed once constructed, meaning there will be slight differences from one piece to another. The set is currently available for preorder and ranges from an XS to a 3XL (or US 22 to 24).
Parachute Bluff Collection
Parachute has expanded its furniture offerings with the Bluff Collection, which is an assortment of end-of-bed-benches and curved nightstands. Inspired by natural shapes, each piece has a simple silhouette. This one, for example, is inspired by the bluffs of Big Sur and comes in both walnut and oak.
