    3. A Hard Candy powder highlighter, because every day is a good day to glow.


    Price: $6.00

    4. A blue lipstick (also available in a ton of other bold, creamy shades!) that'll make even more of a statement when topped with some glitter gloss.

    Promising review: "I wanted a darker red that I could wear on stage and on the street, and this exceeded my expectations. It doesn't take much to apply it and it doesn't just rub off easily. It feels really creamy when applying it. I'd definitely buy it again." β€”LittleSinger713

    Price: $4.95+ (available in 20 colors)

    5. A NYX highlighter palette to give you a shimmer while pairing well with all your other bold hues.


    Promising Review: "Bought this about a month ago and it's really lovely. It takes some working with and having a dense brush to apply it and pick up pigment but when it does, it's amazing. I love the white highlighter most, it has a gold flip to it that gives a natural warm glow." β€”Haxan

    Price: $9.67

    6. A FLOWER Beauty powdered blush in a bright pink for making a statement on its own, or complementing whatever you choose to pair it with.

    Promising Review: "I love the way the blush is packaged and pressed, so that the powder is in the shape of a flower, very memorable. The color is build-able, and blends very well. I have put a little on, and can still go back over if I want a more dramatic look, without it looking like I caked it on. The blush lasts all day and keeps its pigment very well. I would very much recommend and purchase this product again and in different shades. " β€”theunconventionalbroad

    Price: $8.98 (Available in four colors)

    7. A NYX lip color that'll basically turn you into a mixologist with its blend-ability. / Via Instagram: @

    Promising Review: "I bought this online a couple months ago and I have fallen in love with it. It's so true to color and so smooth and non-drying!! The matte finish stays for hours and I never cease to get lots of compliments, no matter what shade I wear! I am a Liquid Suede addict!!" β€”Lalalarori

    Price: $0.98+ (available in 20 colors)

    8. A set of crayons safe to use on your skin so you can doodle your way into wearing a rainbow.


    Price: $8.99

    9. A NYX glitter primer so you can shine bright without worrying about your makeup flaking or disappearing.


    Promising Review: "I hadn't worked with glitter much and was nervous because it has the tendency to stick to everything and have too much fall out. This glitter primer does the job. Period. Smooth, satiny application and picks up every piece of glitter. I had an unfortunate incident where I fell asleep with a glittery eye look and when I woke up, my other eyeshadows had worn off, but the glitter was still in place exactly where I had applied it. This primer also works great as a base to enhance the color of the NYX pigments. Haven't tried it with lips yet, but for glittery eye looks, I am sold." β€”Gwenna13

    Price: $4.59

    10. A color-changing lipstick that'll make you feel like you're wearing a mood ring. It adapts to your body's chemistry to create the perfect shade.


    Promising Review: "I love this lipstick. It goes on smoothly. The color is usually a nice coral on me and occasionally a mauve tone. I guess it depends on my mood, thus the name, Moodmatcher. Besides the color being great for me, it usually lasts all day without reapplying. I have been using it for close to 20 years. So glad it is available through Walmart." β€”Ginger

    Price: $4.00+ (available in 10 colors)

    11. A Maybelline palette with both neutrals and bold hues so you can create the perfect look no matter the occasion.

    Promising Review: "Amazing color payoff to create fun vibrant looks!" β€”mrabpcm

    Price: $9.98

    12. A vivid eyeliner for turning your makeup routine into a party with its vibrant color.


    Promising Review: "This is my new go-to eyeliner! Usually, I'd put myself far in the conservative zone of makeup looks, so I was a little afraid to try adding some color to my eyeliner. Would it be too bold? Absolutely not! If you want to try amping up your look a little while not going outrageous, this is a PERFECT eyeliner. I got so many compliments on this. It really made my eyes pop. I know that if I wanted to go for a bolder night owl look, I could definitely use this as a bold product too when applied less conservatively. No smudging, smooth application, perfect vibrancy. Would buy again." β€”Lchep4

    Price: $9.87 (available in six colors)

    13. An award-winning Revlon eye tool that has everything you need to do your liner, lids, and lashes so your eyes *pop* in the best way possible.


    Promising Review: "This eye duo is amazing! I got the turquoise (Green Glimmer) on clearance. The shadow is MUCH more vivid on eye than in tube, like liquid metal, with plush applicator. The sparkle is bright and beautiful, with a wonderful pointed brush. Wow!!! Great and versatile shadow/sparkle duo at a great price." β€”diamondgoddessmary

    Price: $7.19 (available in 12 colors)

    14. A FLOWER Beauty crayon that'll do double-duty in your makeup kit to give your lips and cheeks a wash of color.

    Price: $7.42+ (available in five colors)

    15. A color-correcting kit to prep your skin, leaving it smooth and ready for the next extra colorful steps in your beauty routine.


    Promising Review: "Absolutely love this palette. You have the multiple colors to help with any problem you have. I've never found anything that covered my dark circles better than this. (I mix the two skin toned colors!) so simple to use, long lasting coverage. Definitely a must have!" β€”Yvilla363

    Price: $5.99

    16. A waterproof Maybelline eyeliner pencil that'll be your new go-to pencil when it comes to creating your next cateye.


    Promising review: "I have used this mascara for years. I like it because it doesn't flake off onto your cheek, lasts all day. It's good for people that have allergies and watery eyes." β€”Char

    Price: $6.98 (available in eight colors)

    17. An NYX liquid highlighter for topping off your colorful look with a glossy glimmer.


    Promising Review: "I originally brought the color 'Moonbeam' when NYX first launched the Away We Glow highlighters. It quickly became my favorite. It's the perfect pink/gold tone for me. It is my all time favorite, I am constantly pitching this highlighter to my friends, lol. I recently brought 'State of Flux' and it's a beautiful pink/silver. I'm in love. The consistency is creamy, which makes it easy to work with. I use my damp beauty blender or a brush to apply." β€”JenieceD

    Price: $1.05+ (available in eight colors)

    18. A Rimmel London eyeshadow palette guaranteed to make your eyes look magical.

    Promising Review: "I now own three of these palettes (Electric Violet, Rainbow, and Wow) and I absolutely love them! The colors are really rich and are honestly pigmented better than some of the Urban Decay and Too Faced shadows I've used before. I plan on getting a least two or three more." β€”SuziElizabeth

    Price: $7.97 (available in 11 color palettes)

    19. A glitter gloss that'll look great on its own or as a topper for your favorite lipstick because it's always a good time to shine! / Via

    Promising Review: "Love this plumper! Is not sticky at all. I use it over a lipstick and it makes a nice shine!!!" β€”dyane

    Price: $6.00 (available in seven colors)

    20. A Burt's Bees clean beauty lip balm that's got juuuuuuust enough shimmer and color to make a statement.


    Promising Review: "This lip shimmer adds such an amazing color to my lips but feels lightweight. It's the perfect balance between a chapstick and lipstick. The color lasts a long time, even after drinking my morning coffee. It has the classic flavor you would expect from Burt's Bees but with that perfect shimmer. This color is gorgeous and very neutral. Great for any skin tone! This is a dryer shimmer and not like a gloss, more so like a chapstick." β€”kiwinator

    Price: $4.74 (available in eight colors)

    21. A Maybelline shimmery eyeliner that comes in a classic black hue, as well as a few surprises. Go gold or go home!

    Price: $4.97 (available in three colors)

    22. A NYX lip oil for turning your lips into a velvety-matte wonderland without drying them out. Plus it comes in nine shades you'll definitely want to scoop up!

    Promising Review: "I love the formula of this liquid lipstick!!! It's easy to apply and dries down to the most comfortable velvety matte finish. My favorite shade is beyond basic. It's a light brown, which I can almost never pull off but this one is more of a Tawny beige... I don't know but I love it! I also picked up Lokey, Bang Bang, and I Woke Up This Way, and they are all gorgeous on my medium tan skin tone." β€”Jxk204

    Price: $1.14+ (available in nine shades)

    23. A Maybelline primer with more than 5,000 reviews to help your colorful makeup look last longer.

    Promising Review: "Whenever I use Maybelline Facestudio Master Prime Primer my pores instantly disappear in seconds. It makes everything else so easy to apply and blend and lasts all day." β€”michellekayllee

    Price: $7.98

    24. A Real Techniques brush cleaner that'll keep your brushes fresh because the last thing you want to do is accidentally get yesterday's hues in today's color palette.


    Promising Review: "I brought this two weeks ago and love it. Now I don't dread cleaning my brushes. The size and shape make it easier to give my brushes a good deep clean (no matter the size) and it doubles as a drying rack for wet brushes." β€”MrsSassy

    Price: $14.94

    25. A pack of EcoTools brush cleaning wipes because sometimes you've got to clean up your brushes when you're on-the-go or during mid-application of an exciting look.


    Promising Review: "These were a surprise new addition to my collection, when doing big looks where I want to use the same brush for different shadows, these save my life. They leave my brushes clean in between uses and washes which is the most important part for me. Thank you EcoTools!" β€”Sammie

    Price: $4.56

    26. An affordable brightening serum made with watermelon and other natural ingredients that'll give you a radiant glow, which is the PERFECT base for a colorful makeup look.


    Promising Review: "The smell is amazzzzzing!!! Seriously it's almost the best part of the serum. It was easy to put on and it made me face feel very soft after it dried. The smell doesn't fade away fast either so I smelt like watermelon for the majority of the night and I wasn't complaining. Loved it! It didn't irritate my skin. Great serum!" β€”BrandiH10

    Price: $8.94

    27. And a NYX dewy setting spray that'll ensure your makeup doesn't budge. Just spritz when you're done applying and you're good to go!


    Promising Review: "I am a professional makeup artist and I use the NYX setting spray (both matte and dewy depending on the look) at all my appointments and weddings. I have recommended it to many of my clients and they love it too! The price is perfect and it lasts for quite a while. The performance is outstanding!" β€”Angela B

    Price: $8.47
