    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette so you finally have all the shades you need to complete a smokey eye.

    Promising Review: "LOVE this palette. It has a variety of shades, so it's perfect for traveling. It has highlight, base, transition, and crease shades. I could use just this palette in place of all of my other shadows. Could, but won't." β€”KelliSK2

    Price: $18 (Available in a variety of palettes. Cruelty-free and PETA certified, but owned by L'Oreal.)

    2. A bottle of Pixi By Petra Glow Tonic for the clear, soft skin you've always wanted.

    Promising Review: "I use this product as toner, after my cleanser and before my moisturizer. I have super acne-prone skin and this has never broken me out and it helps keeps breakouts at bay. I have only noticed good things in my skin since I started using this a couple months ago." β€”DMichelle

    Price: $15 (Cruelty-free.)

    3. An Alba Good & Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel to get the kind of skin treatment your dermatologist would give you for a fraction of the price.

    Promising Review: "This mask is fantastic! I bought it accidentally thinking it was a peel-off mask, but this is so much better. Just a few minutes a couple nights a week and my skin is smoother. It decreased my acne, acne scarring, general discoloration, and redness. Best yet, pores are less congested and my makeup goes on much smoother. I would caution any people with sensitive skin the product is pretty powerful and does cause some initial redness and/or tingling. Honestly, I would have expected something this effective to have a much higher price point. This stuff is gold!" β€”SunnyinSeattle

    Price: $5 (Cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified.)

    4. A Baby Foot Foot Peel that'll transform your feet into the softest soles on the planet.

    Promising Review: "I will never let another nail tech scrape my feet again, only Baby Foot Peel from now on. It took a few day to get the real peeling going, but once it started it was like a brand new pair of feet under all of that skin. I read a lot of reviews that said soak your feet to get the peeling started, and they're right. I soaked them in the tub up while showering and it helped." β€”Eesh_Wats1219

    Price: $25 (Cruelty-free.)

    5. Some Batiste Blush Floral & Flirty Dry Shampoo to help your blow out last even longer.|adaptpdph1|related_prods_vv|adaptpdph1|16986874|1

    Promising Review: "This was given to me as a gift for my honeymoon and let me tell you β€” this is the best dry shampoo ever! It's much better than the powder kind. As a brunette, the powder shows if you put too much and it gets messy. This spray is so much easier and the blush smells amazing!" β€”Christina

    Price: $6

    6. An e.l.f. Powder Brush that totally competes with professional-grade makeup tools, but at a fraction of the price.

    Promising Review: "I asked a makeup artist for suggestions on powder brushes and he filled me in on this super soft brush. I have easily spent $30-50 dollars on makeup brushes in the past β€” and this one is $3! It is so affordable, you can buy one for home and one for your makeup bag!" β€”Krystin

    Price: $3 (Cruelty-free and PETA certified.)

    7. A Milani Baked Blush for a perfect dewy glow you'll wear all day.

    Promising Review: "Don't let the price fool you, this is a must have! Very pigmented, and absolutely beautiful! I think this would look good on just about everyone!" β€”Taylor

    Price: $8 (Cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified.)

    8. A Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Paper Mask to get those wild Saturday nights started off right.

    Promising Review: "I have very troublesome acne that flares up when it wants. I use this mask after my shower, for about 20 minutes. When I wake up the next day you can see the difference in my skin and my breakouts." β€”Annaconda

    Price: $3 (Cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified.)

    9. Some S.W. Basics Cream that'll help moisturize even the most sensitive of skin.

    Promising Review: "This is hands down the best moisturizer I've ever used. I'm on my second mini jar now and about to commit to the big one. It's very thick, so definitely not for those with lighter moisturizing needs, but I have very dry skin and this is the only thing I've found that is dense enough to keep my skin hydrated without clogging my pores. There's no fragrance, and no coloring so it's great for people with sensitive skin, too." β€”ellemy

    Price: $10 (Cruelty-free, PETA and Leaping Bunny certified.)

    10. A L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Cobalt Blue because blue mascara is amazing! Trust me!|adaptpdph1|related_prods_vv|adaptpdph1|51541064|8

    Promising Review: "I bought this one time just to try out and OMG I love it, it makes my eyelashes look AMAZING!! I can never use anything else and love the affordable price as well!!!" β€”jessyyyyyyyyy

    Price: $6

    Promising Review: "A stylist at a salon recommended this product to me. I LOVE IT!! I got the smallest size for each, and the products last two to three months, so it's worth the price. My hair grew three inches, the texture of my hair is very silky and soft now!" β€”Nicesmoothskin

    Price: $18 (Cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny certified.)

    12. Some Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol Free Toner in Rose Petal for help soothing your skin using only natural ingredients.

    Promising Review: "This is the most wonderful toner I have ever used! To start, it smells like actual roses because it contains rose water. It's also very soothing on the skin, and immediately calms redness and makes my skin feel moisturized. I apply this toner after I cleanse, but before I treat, and moisturize. There aren't any harsh or unnatural ingredients, very straightforward and easy to know what you are applying to the skin. Overall a great product! P. S. I am a GUY and love this product, it can be for anyone." β€”Mark Y

    Price: $10 (Cruelty-free and 100% vegan.)

    13. A jar of L'Oreal Paris Detox and Brighten Pure-Clay Mask that'll brighten your dull skin.

    Promising Review: "I used the mask immediately after purchasing because I noticed my skin was very oily in the middle of the day. Right after using, my face was smooth and tight. I have no complaints. It did the job of taking care of my oily skin!" β€”JDgirl

    Price: $10

    14. A Real Techniques Setting Brush to help keep your under-eye concealer in place.

    Promising Review: "I bought this brush for the purpose of using a finishing powder over my under-eye concealer β€” important given my tired, dark eyes. But it's also perfect for powdering up your T-zone and any area that may tend to get a little shiny during the day. Brush quality is great, haven't had any of the hairs fall out and it is soft against my sensitive skin. Highly recommend." β€”Mon

    Price: $4 (Cruelty-free and 100% vegan.)

    Promising Review: "So I'm super big into makeup, always on the hunt for the next big thing. I'm always buying new products to see if they're really as great as they all say they are. As for this product, trust me when I say, it's AMAZING. You can achieve the most beautiful and flawless wing with this liner. And this is coming from a girl who's pretty new to winged liner. I'd recommend this product to beginners all the way to advanced. You can see this liner featured in many makeup tutorials for further verification of the precision and flawlessness. So happy with it!!!" β€”Lexidags

    Price: $7 (Cruelty-free and PETA certified, but owned by L'Oreal.)

    16. An Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioning Treatment you'll totally become addicted to using.

    Promising Review: "I have very curly, kinky hair. I've tried many conditioners over the years but continue to come back to this product. Nothing makes my hair as manageable. None of the hyped-up, 'super new and improved,' expensive, designer salon stuff, that is supposed to miraculously make your hair soft, shiny, manageable, strong with no more frizz and whatever else they 'promise', can come close." β€”Lester

    Price: $3

    17. A Yes to Coconut Naturally Smooth Lip Balm to throw in your bag and always have on hand.

    Promising Review: "This is my best, must-have, go-to, absolute favorite lip balm! I will not go anywhere without at least two of these miracle workers in my luggage!

    Price: $10 (Cruelty-free.)

    19. A NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette perfect for mastering that my-jaw-is-so-defined glow.

    Promising Review: "I bought this a month or so ago. I waited to give review until after I tried it more than enough times. I will def buy this again. Great price and awesome product, It has a great velvet smooth formula, not irritating. Provides great coverage and is very blendable." β€”kimrokayy

    Price: $25 (Cruelty-free and PETA certified, but owned by L'Oreal.)

    20. A TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Leave-In Spray because if your hair can't handle the heat, it should get out of the kitchen and into some of this.

    Promising Review: "Just like many other girls, I like straightening my hair. This really reduces the damage! It makes my hair feel really soft and silky. I can't do my hair without it! I love it and think it's great!" β€”Jennifer Hoover

    Price: $4

    21. A Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Bronzer/Highlighter Duo that's more beautiful on than in the case, if you can believe that.|adaptpdph1|related_prods_vv|adaptpdph1|16751142|6

    Promising Review: "I bought this product after seeing a YouTuber use it. It really is beautiful and gives a lovely subtle glow -- whether used separately or if you run your brush across both colors." β€”makeuplover

    Price: $11 (Cruelty-free.)

    22. Some Pixi By Petra Correction Concentrate for those dark under-eye circles you want nothing more than to hide.

    Promising Review: "I have awful under-eye circles, and I have tried soooo many different concealers. This one works perfectly. It goes on smoothly, without using too much. It blends well and works for most skin colors. It's definitely worth the price." β€”hobosmiles

    Price: $8.89 (Cruelty-free.)

    23. An e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set spray to help your makeup last all day.

    Promising Review: "Though I have been using e.l.f products awhile, I wasn't so sure about using this because I have sensitive skin. I took a chance and used it sparingly and then started using it on my entire face. I am so pleased with it!! I wear liquid foundation and concealer, and use setting powder under my eyes, as well as powder contour, highlight, and blush. I spray this onto a beauty blender and tap it lightly all over my skin. It hydrates and sets the power so well that it blends seamlessly into my skin. If I need a hydrating touch up later in the day, I follow the same method and it honestly looks like I just applied my makeup -- it looks fresh and vibrant. I couldn't be happier, I absolutely LOVE it." β€”yinzer

    Price: $3 (Cruelty-free and PETA certified.)

    24. Some Le Petit Marseillais Extra Gentle Shower Cream you'll wonder how you ever lived without.

    25. Some Eylure London Lengthening False Lashes because maybe you're born with them, or maybe you just want people to believe that.

    Price: $5 (Cruelty-free.)

    26. A COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara for lashes people will see from miles away.

    Promising Review: "I would consider myself a makeup expert, and I have tried many mascaras, including high-end ones. This is by far the best I've ever used. I cried three times and worked out, all in one day. By the end of the day it still looked just as good as when I applied it 12 hours earlier." β€”clare

    Price: $6 (Available in a variety of colors.)

    27. A Wet N Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick you can easily buy instead of the more expensive stuff.

    Promising Review: "I have the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and I love how it stays on and dries without much smudging and is mostly 'kiss proof.' This Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit is a copy of it, and I have to say that I love it! They all look great on! I'm sticking with them β€” they're new my favs, especially for the price! Definitely worth the try!" β€”youissmart

    Price: $4 (Available in a variety of colors. Cruelty-free and PETA certified.)
