1. Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint, $14.99

"I recently came across a peel-off lip stain which was kind of interesting. It’s made by a Korean brand called Berrisom Lip Tint. You put a layer of color on, let it dry for 5 minutes and peel off the top layer. Oddly satisfying and it lasted!" —emilyh46b4a2462


4. Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara, $12.99

"Most definitely the Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara. I've been using it for years and [it] hasn't failed me yet. It has little fibers in it, so it really helps with lengthening. It's incredibly waterproof and holds a curl better than any mascara I've ever used!" —Pearl Suwan, Facebook

5. Tony Moly Cats Wink Clear Pact, $7.49

"Tony Moly's Cats Wink Clear Pact. I'm wearing it on my FB profile picture and OMG, BEST POWDER EVER! Soft and matte skin, no shine, no sweaty melted face on hot days, awesome scent. I love it. And Monomola's WOW lip tints! They last a seriously long time, no reapplication or anything; they don't fade away even if you drink water, eat, kiss..." —Dení Ojeda Hernandez, Facebook


8. Bioré UV Perfect Face Milk, $14.49

"Bioré UV Perfect Milk Sunscreen is absolutely amazing and the best sunscreen I've ever used. After returning from a semester in Japan, I still buy it on Amazon every summer. It has no weird smell and it's not oily or sticky at all (and of course protects from the sun very well!). I've never seen any sunscreen sold in the U.S. that's anything like it." —Torey Bocast, Facebook


11. Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam, $9.83

"Innisfree's Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam is my favorite. It works well for my skin and doesn't cause irritation like other products I've tried in the past. It's gentle enough to be used daily. It doesn't dry out my skin after use either, which is a plus, and the scent is nice also!" —Ji Chung, Facebook


15. Lakmé Insta-Liner, $4.99

"Lakmé Insta-Liner. My first liquid eyeliner when I was 12, and I still refuse to use any other brand. It costs like $1.50 or something, and it lasts me for almost a year and I wear winged eyeliner every single day. Oh, and it refuses to budge even when in contact with water. Seriously, it is the best. If you don't live in India, I recommend you try getting it online or something." —Harshita Narsimhan, Facebook

16. Baby Foot Exfoliating Foot Peel, $17.63

"Baby Foot is life changing and odd. If you have callus-ridden feet, or just scratchy feet, this will rock your socks—probably literally. You soak your feet in these bags for a while and then rinse off. Within days to a week (it took my feet a week) your skin starts peeling off. If you go to Amazon and look at the product review photos you will see what I mean. It feels strangely good, but it's weird how much skin comes off." —Ciara Rodrigues, Facebook


19. Nature Republic Bee Venom Treatment, $13.90

"When my friend and I went to Seoul a year back we got a ton of these bee venom acne gels, and that has been the only thing to clear my skin, like ever. That, and the snail slime. It's gross, I know. But they gave it to us for free in a makeup store and I swear they were the best face creams ever." —Kira Rebecca, Facebook


24. Etude House I Need You Mask, $15.39 (for pack of 15)

"I'm absolutely obsessed with Etude House's I Need You Face Masks, and recently I acquired the peach scented hand cream and the soothing eye cream from TonyMoly. Also, the eyeliners are so much better than the ones you get at Sephora; many of them are made of actual bristles rather than sponge." —Katelyn Leong, Facebook
