213Deli x Gloss Angeles 2023 Best in Beauty - The Sundae Collection

by Nicole Collins

We are die-hard beauty junkies here at 213Deli. We totally nerd out about products, brands, trends, the science behind it all and (frankly) all things beauty. One of our favorite sources of beauty news is the Gloss Angeles Podcast. So we are over-the-top excited to announce that 213Deli and Gloss Angeles have partnered to bring you the 2023 Best in Beauty.


Kirbie Johnson and Sara Tan, co-hosts of my favorite beauty podcast Gloss Angeles, are
beauty junkies like me. When they suggested putting together the 2023 Best in Beauty
Collections, I couldn’t wait to see what was in store!

These two give amazing beauty advice because they know their stuff. Kirbie spent 8 years at
POPSUGAR testing beauty products and building their beauty video vertical. She has tested
thousands of beauty products and produced over 500 beauty segments and interviewed dozen
of beauty brand founders. Kirbie’s a freelance beauty editor who has written for everyone that
matters including Allure, Elle, Glamour, The Hollywood Reporter, The Cut, Byrdie and more.

Sara Tan became the Beauty Director at Refinery29 after spending seven years as the Senior
Fashion and Beauty editor at Bustle. She’s a beauty junkie and writer who has contributed to all
of the women’s and lifestyle publications that matter including Allure, InStyle, People, Parents,
Coveteur, BRIDES, and Women’s Health and more.


What’s more? Everyone who purchases The Sundae Collection is entered to win EVERY PRODUCT IN EVERY 213Deli x Gloss Angeles COLLECTION! That’s 15 products worth over $425! Three winners will be announced December 8th at 5pm PST.


“When selecting these brands, we thought they complemented each other in unique ways — as editors, we love the strong brands Half Magic, Lawless and Vacation have individually created; we’re always impressed with what they bring to the table. And it turns out these viral products make an excellent beauty sundae. Consider your face & body the ice cream. Add Half Magic’s Mouth Cloud in Magic Brownie for a light-as-air, decadent base to the lips. Spray some of Vacation’s creamy Classic Whip SPF 30 Sunscreen Mousse on for protection, then top things off with Lawless’s Forget the Filler Lip Plumper Line-Filling Gloss in Cherry Vanilla for nostalgic tint and scent.

Not only are these brands we sing the praises of — IYKYK if you’re a long-standing Glamgeleno — but we’ve both covered the launches of each, which makes their success all these years later even more special.” Kirbie & Sara

If any of these are new to you, you’re in for a treat. Half Magic’s Mouth Cloud in Magic Brownie (a rosy brown shade) is an addictive, velvety-soft lip cream that gives all day matte coverage but never looks or feels dry.

Vacation’s Classic Whip SPF 30 is a lighter-than-air (Oxybenzone & Octinoxate free) sunscreen made with eco-friendly propellants and an authentic whip cream “tilt valve” that produces the perfect star-shaped foam just like your fav whip does! It’s derm tested and safe for sensitive skin and smells divine.

Lawless Forget the Filler Gloss in Cherry Vanilla (a sheer red with a nostalgic cherry vanilla flavor) should be a staple in your arsenal. It’s a clinically proven high-shine plumper that plumps without stinging or irritating the lips. The magic is in the maxi-lip, shea butter and rosehip oil.

We hope you love The Sundae as much as we do. Be sure to follow us all on IG to see what’s next – @213Deli @GlossAngelesPod @KirbieJohnson @SaraTan
