    1. A jar of cult-favourite bentonite clay mask that will suck every last bit of gunk out of your pores in under 20 minutes (and make you look like a swamp monster). You can also use it as a spot treatment, if you don't want to cover your whole face.

    2. A matte liquid eyeliner that won't budge, even if you have oily lids. One BuzzFeed writer says that it's super easy to control, so you don't have to be an artist to get that perfect flick.

    3. This legendary blood red peeling solution from The Ordinary that you've probably seen on TikTok, Instagram, and every other social media platform. It'll clean out your congested pores, deeply exfoliate your skin, and make your skin super smooth (AKA everything you want and need).

    4. A tube of revolutionary peel-off eyebrow tattoo gel that'll make filling in your brows a breeze. It’ll tint your brows for up to three days, so you won’t have to repeat the process every morning.

    5. A stick of Maybelline concealer that'll trick people into thinking you got a full night of sleep, even when you're battling insomina (it me). Reviewers say it has killer coverage and can be used on blemishes, too.

    6. A pack of revolutionary acne patches with over 1,000 positive reviews that'll magically make your zits disappear overnight. Reviewers swear by them and say they also help stop them from picking at their active pimples.

    7. A bottle of Essie long-wear nail polish and top coat that'll give you a salon-level mani that lasts for weeks. One BuzzFeed writer loves it because it's easier on your nails than getting legit gel or shellac, and is a lot cheaper, too.

    8. A firming skin regeneration and repair cream made with snail mucus — yes, actual SNAIL MUCUS. It will leave you with bouncy, fresh skin and help fight fine lines, blemishes, acne, and scarring.

    9. A magical heated brush that dries, volumizes, and styles locks all in one go. Now you won't need to mess around with, like, a thousand hair tools when you're trying to get ready (my worst nightmare, TBH).

    10. This bright red NYX blush that looks scary, but is actually really pretty once you apply it. I have a lot of makeup, and reach for it more than most of my expensive blushes. A little goes a long way, it blends in like a dream, and it's hella cheap.

    11. A bottle of multivitamin serum that's packed with vitamin C and antioxidants to brighten, tighten, and work miracles on your skin. A ton of reviewers also thank it for helping lighten up dark spots and under eye circles.

    12. A tube of L'Oreal mascara that'll make your lashes feathery soft and more voluminous than ever. One BuzzFeed writer says it works better than many luxury mascaras and says it won't flake on you over the course of the day.

    13. This translucent banana powder that'll save you from getting that dreaded flashback in photos. It'll give you an airbrushed finished and is great for baking and setting.

    14. A handy eyeliner stamp that'll give you that perfect flick without trying too hard. This set comes with two dual-ended, waterproof pens that have a brush at one end and a stamp at the other (one for your left eye and one for your right).

    15. A bottle of spot treatment that's a total dupe with over 5,000 positive reviews. Reviewers say it works wonders on cystic acne and tough spots.

    16. A Foreo Luna Mini 2 that'll scrub your entire face clean with T-Sonic pulses. It's gentle enough for sensitive skin and will get rid of makeup residue, dead skin cells, and just about anything else.

    17. A bottle of plant-based detangler that smells like creamsicles and will banish fly-aways and keep your hair feeling smooth and silky.

    18. A tube of Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick that'll give you a ultra-pigmented, opaque colour that'll last all day without touchups. One BuzzFeed writer says it's totally foodproof, so you won't have that weird patchy look after devouring a slice of 'za.

    19. A pack of gold under eye patches that are infused with rose oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to soothe and moisturize skin. Plus, they'll add a little bit of luxury to your boring old routine.

    20. A pack of eyebrow razors that'll shape your brows, shave away fine hairs, and smooth your skin (a triple whammy)! Reviewers say they're also awesome for removing peach fuzz and won't irritate sensitive skin.

    21. A bottle of rose-infused witch hazel toner that'll help cleanse your skin without totally drying it out. Reviewers say it's helped with acne and blackheads, and that it's great for sensitive skin, so this may be your new holy grail skincare product.

    22. A jar of Neutrogena Hydro Boost Face Moisturizer that's formulated for extra-dry skin and will give your face the moisture it's desperately wanted and needed all winter. One BuzzFeed writer loves how light it is and says that it makes her foundation go on smoother than ever.

    23. A tube of Haus Laboratories Lip Gloss that'll give you the shiniest, plumpest pout you ever did see. Reviewers are obsessed with how pigmented the colours are and say it it isn't as sticky as most glosses.

    24. A pastel colour-correcting palette that'll conceal even your worst bruises and discolouration. One BuzzFeed writer says it did wonders for a black eye that she got from a stumble after too many cocktails at a boozy brunch (save your judgment, we've all been there).

    25. A jar of bestselling coconut-scented nail strengthening cream that'll prevent splits, chips, and cracks, and help you grow out your nails. Reviewers say it helps keep their nails feeling smooth and hydrated, making it worth every penny.

    26. A Garnier pomegranate face mask that'll prevent moisture loss throughout the day and give you some seriously baby soft skin. Welcome to hydration station, friend.

    27. A bottle of hydrating Mario Badescu facial mist to give your morning routine a luxurious lil' upgrade. It'll save your skin from winter dryness and infuse it with nourishing herbs and oils.

    28. A bottle of plant-based, paraben-free EcoTools makeup brush shampoo that'll get all that built-up gunk off your beauty tools. One BuzzFeed writer says a little dab goes a long way (so the bottle will last you a while) and works absolute wonders when paired with a silicone brush-cleaning pad.

    29. A tube of full coverage e.l.f. camo concealer that'll last for a whopping 16 hours. Reviewers love how full coverage it is and say it works well for dry undereyes.

    30. A tube of Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara that'll give you clump-free, feather lashes without any fuss. One BuzzFeed writer says its comparable to designer mascaras and loves how the flexible wand moves with her lashes to avoid extra build-up.

    31. And finally, a bottle of long-lasting NYX setting spray that'll keep you looking dewy not shiny. Reviewers say it keeps makeup in place through humidity and doesn't feel sticky or heavy.
