With all the hard work that goes into crafting the perfect Halloween costume, it’s easy to forget the real reason we started dressing up in the first place: Candy. Remember racing from house to house, dragging a pillowcase stuffed with sweets? For one night, it was as if we had found the golden ticket and were finally allowed inside Mr. Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
Fast forward a few years. Even though that grade school Disney Princess costume is now a thing of the past, no one is ever too old for candy. It still holds a special place in our hearts, somewhere next to amazing nail art and marathons of bad reality shows. And while we can’t raid the neighborhood anymore, that doesn’t mean we have to give up sweets forever. This month, we’ve rounded up the best beauty products inspired by our favorite Halloween candy, so you can enjoy the holiday in all its sweetness.

So, whether you’re a major chocoholic or a candy corn die-hard, you’ll definitely find a beauty product that looks, smells, and even tastes like your favorite Halloween treat. (Beauty companies do have a sweet tooth!) But unlike the contents of our trick-or-treat bags, these sugary goodies last longer than one night and deliver a sugar rush without the cavities, calories, and eventual crash.
We’ll still be grabbing handfuls of Starburst and all the bite-sized Snickers we can hold come the 31st, but in the meantime, we’ll be curbing our cravings with these candy-inspired cosmetics.
