    Instagram: @milkmakeup

    Promising review: "Lots to love about the MILK matcha toner β€” the lovely color, the way it makes your skin feel after you use it, and being able to get healthy things like witch hazel and green tea into your skin without the mess!" β€”bastgirl

    Get it from Sephora for $26.

    2. An eyeliner stamp that'll give you a perfect cat eye every time with a little practice; which is a much better alternative than ~winging it.~


    Promising review: "This is the only eyeliner I've been able to do a half-decent cat-eye with. It still takes a little practice, but I'm hopelessly makeup-challenged and even I eventually got this to work. And then it lasted all night! All the stars." β€”JMTS

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. A magical clean-up pencil to make you regret your teen punk eyeliner phase even more, because this would've saved a lot of time erasing smudges! At least now you can have it on hand to clean up *current* makeup mistakes.


    It's also cruelty-free and vegan!

    Promising review: "I have had a lifelong problem of under-eye smudges. I even gave up wearing eyeliner for a bit. Then I found this stick. It works! Easiest clean up in the afternoon, and fresh eyes in a few seconds." β€”jananabanana

    Get it from Sephora for $24.

    4. A washable mascara for anyone who is done with clumps clinging to their eyelashes.


    Promising review: "The wand is like a combo wand of every type out there. It has you covered from every angle; and man, I love this stuff! My eyes don't go a day without it." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    5. And a mascara shield so you never ruin perfectly concealed under-eye circles with black specks again.


    Promising review: "It’s perfect! Perfect size and shape. The raised edge sets it apart from cheaper versions. Seriously, this one's the one you want!" β€”Faloony

    Get it from Amazon for $5.46+ (four colors).

    6. A revitalizing eye gel reviewers swear by to rid yourself of those pesky dark circles. As someone who has tried under-eye masks only to stab myself in the eye every time, cream is better IMO.


    Plus it's cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "This gel actually works! I use it under my eye, on my eye lids, and also where crows feet would be. The picture is day one, day five, and day nine. I've only been using this for a little over a week, and can see a dramatic difference already." β€”Kathy

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    7. A cruelty-free. daily-peel pad made to give your skin that fresh, clean peel feeling without the danger of ripping off part of your eyebrow with a charcoal peel mask!

    Promising review: "Every time I stop using these I notice my skin change and have to run to buy more. This is one of the best products I have ever used. They are amazing β€” truly skin improving. They leave my skin clear, refined, and glowing. Bravo to Dr. Dennis Gross for creating an uber effective and cruelty-free peel" β€”dcnyc

    Get it from Sephora for $17+ (choose from 5, 30, or 60 treatments).

    8. A nail polish holder you'll count on for a manicure minus the dribbles of nail polish all over the coffee table πŸ™ƒ.,

    Promising review: "I am all about finding products to make my life easier. This fits my fingers just fine, and I tried two different sizes of nail polish, and neither fell out. The best way to keep the nail polish in is to lift up a few of the 'octopus' arms around your nail polish." β€”punkofneptune

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (17 colors).

    9. And a genius cuticle guard to truly ensure you get a salon-level look every time!

    Promising review: "Works beautifully and allows me to paint my nails much faster without worrying about going outside the lines. I use it with gel nail polish and a UV lamp with no problems. It's great because I can get each coat on faster before curing and then just peel off any polish on the cuticles or tip." β€”K. Pike

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    10. A lip sleeping mask that just may make up for all the days you forget to put on lip balm and head out into the dry AF heat, or worse β€” the cold. Bye chapped and cracked lips!

    Promising review: "One of the best products I have ever bought. I put it on at night and I wake up with perfectly plump and nourished lips. After using repeatedly my lips look plumper and I never have dry lips, even in California heat. I have recommended it to all of my friends and they love it." β€”Megan Haddad

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    11. A reusable makeup-removing cloth so you can enjoy the satisfaction of successfully removing a full face of makeup at the end of the day, because getting makeup off should not be just as hard as putting it on.


    Promising review: "HOLD UP. I have wasted so much money on those makeup remover wipes from Walmart for YEARS. For like TEN YEARS. And now I find this, and I'll never buy those wipes again! I'm not kidding. This thing makes your face SO MUCH CLEANER than those remover wipes. I just wet it with warm water and take off an entire face of makeup. When I used this the first time, my mom said, 'Wow your face looks way cleaner than normal!' Plus, if you're like me and can't do laundry super often, this is a good item because you can just apply some hand soap and the makeup comes out pretty easily if you clean it right after use. I wash this once a week and rinse it out every time I use it. Please do yourself a favor β€” buy this :)." β€”Caroline W.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (two colors).

    12. A cruelty-free mud sheet mask for anyone who loves a good mud mask, but also maybe has clogged the drain with clay masks too many times!

    Promising review: "Skin feels renewed. Beautiful concept, great mud mask. I used scissors to snip here and there to fit my face perfectly. loved it!" β€”Jeanne

    Get it from Ulta for $8.

    13. An easy-to-use hair wand that'll give you curls that'll last for days, plus it comes with heat-protectant gloves so it's basically klutz-proof., Amazon

    Promising review: "I've had this for five years and it is still amazing. I use it so much, people don't know my hair is naturally straight, and I get compliments all the time. I have both sizes but like the smaller one; because the smaller one allows the style to last an extra day (so three days instead of two days, that's how magic this is). Honestly, I can not believe how well this works and how long it has lasted for how cheap it is. I bought this on a whim (cause it's only $20!) and it is one my greatest purchases of all time." β€”madison

    Get it from Amazon for $19.69+ (two sizes).

    14. A lip-lock liner pencil who shall prevent lipstick from fraying, straying, traversing onto your chin, or doing anything else lipstick should not be doing.


    It's also cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I bought a beautiful creamy red lipstick that I just loved but it feathered like you wouldn't believe. I ended up not being able to wear it because I couldn't keep it on my mouth. Then I discovered this stuff. It's amazing. I can trace my lips with this pencil in the morning, wear my buttery lipstick for five or six hours, then repeat the process after lunch and not have any feathering or traveling. It's a game changer if you're into bold lip color." β€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    15. And a paraben- and cruelty-free waterproof lip and eye primer to ensure your eyeshadow and lip color last for hours on end.


    Promising review: "I love it, I am new to makeup so I was going on a whim on what to buy. This stuff is perfect! I have always had issues with my makeup staying on all day, with this primer it does just that. It is so easy to apply and it spreads out soo perfectly. It doesn't bunch up or get clumpy, it isn't sticky, and it has no smell. Doesn't irritate my eyes at all, and as you can see I even use it on my lips under matte lipgloss and it keeps my lips from feeling dry. It is a must buy, and for the price; you are getting some amazing stuff." β€”Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39.

    16. A deodorant removing sponge so you can remove annoying white spots on those hectic mornings when you pull your sweater on a bit too quickly 😬.

    Promising review: "This was a lifesaver at my sister's wedding, and all the bridesmaids loved it. The navy bridesmaids gowns made this product essential. I would HIGHLY recommend for any wedding day kit, or just regular household use. It actually works as described, apparently by magical properties." β€”ccarp001

    Get it from Amazon for $6.29.

    17. A scalp massager and shampoo brush for anyone who wants more hair growth (and a soothing scalp massage!) without all the messy leave-in products.


    Promising review: "I have been using this product since June 2016. I liked it so much I added it to my regular hair routine. I use this massager both while I shampoo my hair, and on dry hair for a simple scalp massage about once a day. The massager takes 1AA batteries. It's convenient to hold, it's waterproof β€” so safe to use in the shower, it increases blood circulation to hair follicles, promotes relaxation, and helps remove dead skin from your scalp. It is safe to use this product with oils on your scalp. Lastly, the massager does not make a loud noise when vibrating." β€”A.L.B.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (four colors).

    18. A makeup sponge case to protect your precious blenders from the mayhem that is your purse/travel bag.


    Promising review: "I always feel like my beauty sponge gets dirty in my makeup bag. With this case it is protected but ventilated. When I wash it and need to pack quickly, I can easily place it in this case and it dries without being contaminated from other brushes or products. I was pleasantly surprised by how much cleaner and protected my beauty sponge is with this case!" β€”Amanda G Sellers

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    19. A two-toned lip bar so you can achieve a put-together look with ease, and say "Me, a klutz? Never!" all day long., Amazon

    This babe is also cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I love it so much and get lots of compliment when I wear this lipstick. The color is beautiful, and it doesn't make my lips feel dry. LOVE it!" β€”AE

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (five shades).

    20. A v absorbent hair towel that'll effortlessly bring out the waves of hair, and of compliments!


    Promising review: "My long hair was a good 50% drier after five minutes in this towel vs. a hair towel I purchased two years ago. Felt weird to the touch at first. Checked the fiber content, It was because the fiber content was a polymer fabric, not cotton. The material allows it to soak up water away from the hair without the towel feeling wet. I bought three different kinds on Amazon so I could compare. This was the best of the bunch." β€”SM

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    21. A makeup storage box made to clean up the mess in the bathroom/vanity β€” and it's super easy to put together, thank god.

    Promising review: "I got this to clean up the mess by my bathroom sink. It works great! It's very easy to put together. I'm not very inclined to put things together, but this was easy even for me. I love how you can move the shelves to make spaces taller or shorter." β€”Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $22.57.

    22. A 100-piece eyeshadow shield perfect for anyone who wants to experiment with glitter without getting it everywhere, or anyone who needs daily protection from eyeshadow fall out.


    Promising review: "I am a makeup rebel and attack my palettes, liners, and mascaras with a vengeance. Not only do these totally protect from shadow fallout, but they serve as a perfect template for lower lid application, as well as serious smokey eye looks." β€”Carolyn Rome

    Get them from Amazon for $14.90.

    23. A Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick as versatile as it is easy to use. It is a highlighter, lip color, eyeshadow, and eyeliner all in one, and it's magnetized to avoid clumsy mishaps. Go wild!

    Sephora, Christina Lan / BuzzFeed

    It's cruelty-free too 😊.

    Promising review: "Trippin is a very versatile shade. I used it on my bare face without any foundation. After applying it on my cheeks and eyelids, I look fresh and ready to go. This is exactly what I need for a very minimal makeup routine in the morning. I use my fingers to spread/blend the product." β€”iTempura

    Get it from Glossier for $22 (three shades).

    25. And a splurge-worthy avocado sleep mask so you can glow like the angel klutz you are, just from sleeping with this dream on your face! It's a lot less messier than it sounds, I promise.


    It's also 100% vegan and cruelty-free, big want.

    Promising review: "From the packaging to the bottle, the texture, smell, and its effects, everything about this mask is amazing! It really does melt into the skin, the texture is thick and creamy. It is a perfect winter mask. PHA in the mask exfoliates gently but effectively. It is perfect for every-night use. It makes my skin feel very nourished, smooth, and soft, and my pores look smaller. I wake up with the softest skin. I will always have this in my shelf." β€”Delishbrowngirl

    Get it from Sephora for $45.
