There are tons of bootiful Halloween beauty products that allow us to transform into unicorns, princesses, two-faced evil dolls and any otherworldly creature our black hearts desire. The only problem? After October 31, you find yourself with a barely-used makeup palette... and nowhere spooky to use it. In the interest of our wallets and versatility, we've searched for Halloween beauty products that will work as well in other months as they do in October. Use the eye shadows, hair accessories, nail polishes and more to slay on Halloween — then continue to slay (without looking spine-chilling) the rest of the year.

This is in fact a Halloween eyeshadow palette, but it doesn't have the vampy colors we normally expect. The palette is designed for lighter looks, so use it to transform into a mermaid or unicorn. To modify for post-Halloween, use the satin and shimmer shades to create pretty pastel makeup looks for everyday. The shadows can also double as ethereal colorful highlighters.
China Glaze To Catch a Color Collection in Arrest in Peace, $3.75
The China Glaze "To Catch a Color" collection has traditional black and orange polishes, plus other moody shades. However, the glitter and shimmer finishes prevent the colors from becoming frightening — provided you're not using the nail polishes for bloody nail art, that is. For example, the spectacularly named "Arrest in Peace" (pictured) is a red-black glitter topper that would add moody magic to any base color. It could even work in a holiday manicure. For real.
Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers MegaLast Liquid Catsuit High-Shine Lipstick in Faires' Funeral, $5.49
With shade names like "Pumpkin Guts," "Faires' Funeral" (pictured) and "Vampires' Juice Box" it's easy to write this off as a Halloween-only product. But, the lacquer-like colors are definitely not costume-y. The shades go from soft and light to dark romance, but they never take things too dark. And they're formulated with a range of nourishing oils, vitamin E, murumuru seed butter and shea butter to keep lips conditioned.
This hand soap will continue to put a spell on you after October. And no, it doesn't smell like pumpkin: It's a fruity-floral blend of daisies, cassis and apple.
