    Promising review: "This is such a nice product. Good weight to it, easy to keep clean. I use it daily for my facial massages, lymphatic drainage, and to push product in. It is a great dupe for insanely overpriced alternatives. Buy this, you won’t regret it." —ungoddess

    Price: $14.99

    Price: $4 (available in six colors)

    6. A Winky Lux brow pencil meant for pretty much all eyebrow shades. Give your brows an upgrade with a simple swipe and blend action.


    Promising review: "I’m almost hopeless when it comes to consistently getting my eyebrows right every time. Then I used it and it was like the gray cloud of mediocre eyebrows lifted from over my head. This eyebrow pencil is absolutely wonderful!!! And it’s a straightforward, bare bones pencil. It’s really easy to use and the pigment is true. I like that it doesn’t go on extremely heavy like a lot of brow pencils can, so I can build it. It’s great for those spare areas and the spool is tight and dense so it moves things around uniformly and thoroughly. I highly recommend if you’re frustrated with other brow products or just looking for something new." —With Love Kika

    Price: $16

    7. A tinted lip balm to hydrate your lips *and* give them a pop of color. Filled with avocado oil and acai, this vegan lip balm is about to be your lips' new best friend.

    Promising review: "I have been searching for a lip color that I can wear every day that I can just apply quickly and will make my lips look better but natural. Well, this is it. It's not gloppy or sticky, but it is moisturizing. I love the natural ingredients, when the lipstick wears off, you're mostly eating it right so you really don't want all the bad chemicals. The color is the best part. It looks like my lip color is just happier and more awake. Highly recommend!" —Ericka

    Price: $11.39 (available in six colors)

    8. A Maybelline concealer blender for those days when you sleep terribly and wake up with massive under-eye bags. Give this product a simple tap under your eyes and smoothly blend it with the soft applicator for a bright-eyed, refreshed look.

I dab just a little on the reddest parts of my face and blend it out and then cover it with foundation. It does a fabulous job of concealing the redness.

    Promising review: "These are great colors, but the thing that keeps me coming back to P.F. products is how well they blend. Other bronzers/blushes at this price point can be streaky, but not theirs. And I also use this highlighter sometimes for eyelids. I love it." —a_rey

    Price: $11.19

    16. A lash primer and mascara duo because a 2-in-1 is always a good idea. The primer helps promote the lift of this mascara and keeps it looking perfect all day long.
