    1. A brightening facial scrub from Acure that'll use sea kelp and French green clay to soften and cleanse your skin.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOOOOOVE this scrub! I saw it in a BuzzFeed article about affordable facial products that really work, and had to buy! It’s eco-friendly, and gentle enough to use a couple times a week. My skin glows!!!" —MelbaToasty

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three versions).

    2. A set of 16 Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks so you don't ever have to fret about whether you have a quality mask on hand after a particularly stressful day when you're looking to unwind.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These masks are amazing!!! Having 'ice pick' scars left over from acne I was told that I'd have to pay for expensive laser therapy because the body can't produce enough collagen to heal deep scars. I've been using these masks for two months and I've seen SIGNIFICANT reduction in my scars. They are almost completely gone!" —Shaun

    Get them from Amazon for $11.59.

    3. La Roche-Posay gel cleanser to assist in conquering your arch nemesis: acne. It's made of a salicylic acid that'll target blackheads and whiteheads directly. See ya', pesky pimples.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was lucky enough to have clear skin in high school so I never understood how awful acne really is. When I was about 21–22 years old, I switched to a birth control implant, and that thing wreaked havoc on my entire life. I suddenly had horrible cystic acne. Not only did it make me self conscious and uncomfortable, but it was actually so painful — laying on my pillow hurt my face! To top it all off, my skin was also dry, and irritated. I tried every skincare line on the market for about two to three years, with no, or very little, results. Finally, I found La Roche-Posay's skincare products. Within four days, the inflammation decreased, the redness was fading, and my skin felt less dry. By two weeks, my skin was practically clear! I have been using this product for about four to five years now, and I haven't had a single outbreak, EXCEPT for the time I wanted to try a different product to save money. Huge mistake, one I will not make again." —LadyHawke

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. A Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush that'll remove any unnecessary stress from your morning routine.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    So many of my friends have bought this brush and it was all my mom requested for Mother's Day last year. It's becoming a must-have for anyone who loves a blowout but doesn't have the patience to go get one or lacks the skills to get it done nicely themselves — seriously it has over 75,000 5-star reviews on Amazon! I, OBVIOUSLY, had to get one for myself and have been using it on days I want to quickly dry my hair. It really is fantastic.

    Promising review: "For background: I do not have hairstyling experience, neither have I blown dried my hair, and my hair looks like I went to the hair salon. Like many people I read the comments before buying, however after trying it, the comments honestly don’t give this product enough justice. I have curly hair and I’ve seen professional mess up when blow drying my hair, but with this product I was shocked! I wish I took a before picture but I added one with my curly hair for comparison." —Elizabet

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in five styles).

    5. Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free moisturizer you can count on to smell fantastic and leave your face feeling refreshed after the first application.

    Sephora

    I've been using this product for the last year and it has become one of my favorites. It's a brightening and lightweight moisturizer that really works! I like to use it in the morning for a fresh start to my day. The pretty pink hue and glass bottle also just looks gorgeous on my counter — no complaints!

    Promising review: "Amazing! I haven’t been able to use a moisturizer for a couple of years without a breakout until I tried this. I had very dry, sensitive skin a few years ago, and then all of a sudden I had oily, acne-prone skin. I started using this because my skin was suffering without moisturizer and I was hopeful. It has not caused one breakout! It has helped heal the breakouts I had when I started using the product. This sits well under makeup, and causes no excess oil throughout the day." —Sephora Customer

    Get it from Sephora for $39.

    6. A bottle of Mavala Stop with a bitter (but harmless!) taste to help you not only kick your cuticle-biting habit, but leave you with gorgeous long nails. You'll have Cardi B–like claws in no time!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's a miracle! I am 45 years old and have tried every product over the years — my mom used to put everything imaginable on my fingernails to keep them out of my mouth, my grandma tried to pay me to grow my fingernails out, but still, here I was at 45 with horrible nails. This has been a miracle. I can't describe the taste but will just say that it makes me not want my hands anywhere near my face. Yes, it is difficult to eat finger food with this on — I went to Florida recently and had to have my husband peel my shrimp for me. :-) But, it is a small price to pay to break this habit." —Laurie S.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    7. A supercharged Vitamin C serum to help protect your skin against UV rays while also repairing existing damage. You won't think twice about adding this into your daily beauty routine.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have never felt more compelled to write a product review before. This stuff is INCREDIBLE. I have tried almost everything to improve my skin. I continue to get acne in my mid-30s and literally everything else I've tried has not worked, including prescription topical cream and oral medication. This has saved my skin! I have had very few breakouts, and if anything pops up, this takes care of it quickly! My skin feels moisturized and looks smoother and healthier overall. This is truly one of the best purchases I've ever made. I'm thankful I stumbled upon this serum!" —J.C. Denton

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    8. A winged eyeliner stamp if you obsess over makeup tutorials but haven't been able to nail liquid eyeliner just yet.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat-eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out...but to my surprise I put the left cat-eye on first and it was perfect. I thought this was a fluke and did the right eye...again, it came out clean and perfect! I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT-EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean crisp line. I can now do a cat-eye EVERY day and look/feel like a badass. Everyone can think I spend hours doing my makeup in the morning." —LadyMeow

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.97

    9. Glossier's Boy Brow, because who wouldn't want flawless eyebrows every day?

    Glossier

    My coworker AnaMaria Glavan is passionate about this product. Here's what she had to say:

    "Believe the hype: this magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does what exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better."

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in five shades).

    10. Acne-absorbing cover patches that'll blend in with any skin tone and are gentle enough for any skin type, so you can go about your day without worrying that it looks like you're growing a second head on your face.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Avarelle's pimple patches are formulated with tea tree oil and calendula, which is said to heal and shrink zits overnight. A single pack comes with 40 patches in a variety of sizes to fit any pimple you've got.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    11. A highlighting stick to add just a *touch* of sunshine to your face, no one will ever know you couldn't remember the last time you actual left your house when you were applying it that morning. Makeup magic!

    the shimmery highlighter stick
    Beauty Pie

    Promising review: "Very impressed with the pigment of this stick. A little goes a long way. Blends beautifully and adds shimmer to all the areas I need it most. Formula is the perfect consistency to roll onto cheeks and blend out." —Slim

    Get it from Beauty Pie for $26 (available in two colors).

    12. An ice roller, which is said to help decrease under-eye puffiness, minimize fine lines, and shrink the look of pores — as well as to relieve headaches and sore muscles. Your skin will thank you.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This my favorite thing to start my pampering with, but I also use it in the morning before I apply any makeup. All you have to do is pop the separate roller piece into your freezer and you'll be ready to de-puff in no time.

    Promising review: "I use this ice roller in my esthetician treatment room after extractions, peels and/or waxing. My clients love it! It drastically reduces inflammation and swelling...thereby leaving the skin in a much healthier state than if I didn't use it. I actually prefer this to my magic globes because of the ease of rolling over the skin. Globes tend to skip/jump if the skin is not properly lubricated with a lot of product. I can apply a calming colloidal oatmeal masque (in powder form) or other setting masque and simply roll right over it. If it is too chilly for your client...simply put a damp esti wipe on the skin as a barrier. Very easy to clean and disinfect between clients." —Chris DeFelice

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in nine colors).

    13. A black sugar strawberry wash-off face mask — perfect for relaxing with an at-home spa night after a busy week.

    the jar of strawberry scrub
    Amazon

    My colleague AnaMaria Glavan speaks highly of this mask. She said:

    "The black sugar 'seeds' exfoliate the crap (literally) out of your skin and get all the gunk out of your pores, but doesn't dry it out to the point where your forehead is crying 'moisturize me' in a hoarse whisper. Plus, the scent of strawberries actually makes my mouth water. It's berry amazing. Ultimately, my skin feels smoother, doesn't feel tight, and looks brighter because of the Vitamin C ingredients. My blackhead-ridden nose is, in particular, forever in debt to this amazing mask."

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    14. A luxurious rose bubble bath from Kylie Skin that'll be the cherry on top of your next spa night.

    Kylie Skin

    The bubble bath is made up with natural oils and flower extracts to help moisturize your skin and relax your mind. I've been debating buying this for over a month now and just might cave after I finish writing this sentence.

    Get it from Kylie Skin for $26.

    15. A reliable eyeliner you'll exclaim is simply *eye-mazing* after trying it out once – trust me, I've put it to the test!

    RealHer Beauty

    I first used this eyeliner for my sister-in-law's wedding (I was the MOH) so it was essential to use a product I knew would stay in place. This one was fantastic — I put it on first thing in the morning and never had to reapply!

    Get it from RealHer Beauty or Amazon for $16.

    16. Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer to brighten your under-eyes and help you disguise the fact your Sunday Scaries kept you up way past your bedtime.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I am a makeup snob. I have stupidly high standards for cosmetic performance, and drugstore brands have let me down every single time I've given them a shot. So when I graduated from Covergirl to Sephora after college, I never looked back. My kit is full of Dior and YSL foundation, Armani concealer, Benefit brighteners, etc. But this thing is truly great. The sponge applicator is better than you think. Firstly, it's antimicrobial, so you don't have to worry about the hygiene aspect. Secondly, its ability to blend the product is outstanding. The concealer itself doubles as a highlighter, it looks good without primer, and it lasts so much longer than you'd expect." —Sarita

    Get it from Amazon for $4.74+ (available in 18 shades).

    17. A set of face mask brushes for anyone who already seems to have every beauty gadget on the market.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these! I no longer dread putting on my face products. I was using my fingers to apply the product to my face, but it was so messy and got in my nails, too. When I came across these silicone brushes I knew I had to have them. They are amazing and the low price is a steal. These brushes really changed my routine. I use my facial products more often because I'm no longer worried about the annoying mess. The silicone brush is very flexible and spreads the product on my face nicely. Cleaning the brush is a simple task, just rinse and pat dry. Highly recommended!" —Wells Family

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    18. A hydrating argan oil hair mask to refresh your dry or damaged hair and give yourself an excuse to spend your Friday night at home.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My hair is very thin and curly. The ends are damaged from heat and color, causing my hair to look even more unruly. I do oil treatments once a week and only wash my hair two to three times a week but NOTHING has made my hair feel like this product does. There is an immediate difference as soon as this product touches my hair. It leaves my hair feeling so silky, even after I rinse it out and dry my hair." —Maegan W.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    19. A Princess Tiana–inspired liquid lipstick you might want to buy two of right from the start because your sister is *definitely* going to try and steal it from you. Don't mess with Disney adults who also love beauty products.

    Colourpop

    Promising review: "This shade is such a beautiful, rich, and versatile shade of red that I bought a backup. I don't want to be without this new staple shade in my collection. It transitions perfectly from day to night, and has a pillowy yet moisturizing feel to the lips. I'm not normally a liquid lipstick fan because they chap my lips so badly, but this formula does not do that. I highly recommend this shade and formula if you're looking for great color payoff without the chapped lips from liquid lipstick." —Ashley S.

    Get it from Colourpop for $9.

    20. A Pineapple & Papaya Exfoliating Mask that'll feel like treating your skin to a tropical vacation — you both deserve it.

    Beauty Strike

    The mask is meant to work for all skin types and is vegan. In addition to making skincare products, Beauty Strike is a Black- and woman-owned business run by third-generation beauty enthusiast and esthetician, Emani Mone Jeter. Her studio offers monthly yoga and wellness classes, occasional book clubs, and skincare classes. The brand also has a recycling program that'll give you a 15% discount off your next order if you return one qualifying empty container and 25% off for two or more.

    Get it from Beauty Strike for $24.

    21. A loose powder foundation from bareMinerals with SPF 15 built into it so you can ensure your skin is protected all year long.

    dashingdiva_usa / Via instagram.com

    This was one of the very first products I ever added into my daily makeup routine — I've been using it for over a decade and likely will forever. It's very lightweight, doesn't feel cake-y at all, and is always my finishing touch to any makeup looks I put together.

    Promising review: "I've been using the original foundation for years and it has NEVER disappointed. As soon as I put it on my complexion is near perfect, but still looks so natural. I get compliments on my skin when I wear it, because it really doesn't look like average, caked makeup — it looks like your skin. It's worth every penny and lasts quite a while. Give it a try! :)" —Rebecca2020

    Get it from bareMinerals for $32 (available in 30 shades).

    22. Tarte's Shape Tape Contour Concealer you've likely been eyeing for months now and will be so excited to finally learn what the hype is about. Let me tell you — it'll live up to it.

    Tarte

    Promising review: "Best concealer till time!! Just love the consistency. Can be worn without powder to give a more dewy look! Love the travel size. Medium to high coverage! Would definitely recommend!" —Mehwish K.

    Get it from Tarte for $10 (available in 30 shades).

    23. Gold under-eye collagen masks you can break out whenever you "accidentally" stay up all night bingeing something new on Netflix and need some de-puffing.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These eye masks are absolutely amazing! I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes, as well as slight bags from being a mother of four. Eye creams do absolutely nothing for me, and I gave these a try just on a whim, not really expecting much. But they really work! The results aren't permanent, but I put these on for about an hour in the evening while I relax and watch TV, and my under eyes are much lighter and less puffy. I absolutely love these eye masks, and I will never be without them again." —Kate Johnson

    Get a pack of 12 pairs from Amazon for $16.

    24. A lipstick from Yves Saint Laurent that'll look as fabulous on your bathroom counter as it will on your pout.

    yslbeauty / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "My love affair for this lipstick started two years ago when I bought the wrong shade and it turned out to be a blessing. The texture is moisturizing but there’s a decent amount of staying power which I appreciate. I absolutely love the shade range so much I feel like you’ll be able to find a color you enjoy from the line. They also build very nicely. If you are looking for a high end lipstick that you won’t be disappointed in check these out!" —thebrittster

    Get it from Sephora for $38 (available in 22 shades).

    25. Clump-free mascara with a lightweight and long lasting formula that'll have people asking if you recently got eyelash extensions. Joke's on them!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and am highly devoted to my trusted brands. When a friend suggested this mascara I was curious, as she loved it. For the price point and how good it looked on her eyes, I thought why not. Holy moly. I'm in love. It makes my lashes longer — looks like I'm natural but better — and has a thinner formula so it looks like I have a billion gorgeous lashes, and looks the same all day long. I cannot recommend this enough. It doesn't rub during the day and give me that black-eye look. It's wonderful. Must buy." —Katherine Ochsman

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in two colors).

    26. A shimmery Pat McGrath lipgloss you can pair with any color to add some serious sparkle and shine — you're gonna look fabulous, darling.

    Sephora

    Pat McGrath Labs is a Black- and woman-owned brand. Not only does she make incredibly beautiful products, but she recently became the first makeup artist to received a damehood. Queen Elizabeth certainly does have good taste ;).

    Promising review: "This is the absolutely the best lipgloss I've ever used. It lasts for about 6-7 hours before I need to reapply. It keeps my lips moisturized, and I like the sparkle. I'll definitely be trying other shades." —FawnRN

    Get it from Sephora for $30 (available in four shades).

    27. A hair scalp massager that'll quickly become your favorite shower accessory. You can use it to exfoliate and deep clean your scalp while applying your shampoo — it's a game changer.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    I have one of these babies and it really is wonderful. Not only does it make me feel like I'm really getting in there while I'm washing my hair, but it also recreates that feeling you get when your hairdresser massages your head while washing it. Ugh, so good.

    Promising review: "Love this product! About five days before I received it I dyed my hair at home. As some of you may know who do the same, it’s difficult to get the hair dye out of your scalp. I scrubbed my hair for days with my fingers and it seemed like everything was gone because the water ran clear. When I received the product I was excited so I am immediately jumped in the shower to use it. To my surprise a ton of hair dye that was stuck on my head came off. Not only that, but my scalp feels breathable and clean. Definitely not greasy 24 hours later like regular shampooing would do for me. I would recommend this product." —Lisa Agro

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59+ (available in three colors).

    28. A science-themed eyeshadow palette called "Sodium Fine" (hehehe) you'll find yourself *experimenting* with so often you'll probably have to order another.

    @makeupscientistcosmetics / Via instagram.com, @makeupscientistcosmetics / Via instagram.com

    This playful, punny palette is cruelty-free and vegan! Added bonus? It's from a small Black-owned business based in North Carolina.

    Promising review: "This palette is amazing!!!!! It’s so pigmented. The colors pop extremely well. I can’t wait to see what other palettes this brand has to come." —Jasmine

    Get it from Makeup Scientist Cosmetics for $45.

    29. Ouai wave spray from Jen Atkin you can quickly spritz all over your hair post-shower for an easy-to-achieve, frizz-free beachy look.

    Sephora

    I have naturally wavy (but frizzy) hair and after trying many products this is where I've happily landed. Ouai is the first brand I recommend to my fellow wavy-haired ladies. It's light, doesn't leave your locks feeling crunchy, doesn't have an overpowering smell, and keeps hair looking fresh. My only complaint is it doesn't come in a massive-sized bottle!

    Get it from Sephora for $26.

    30. A set of Turbie Twist hair towels to fight frizz as soon as you step out of the shower.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The one thing my sisters fight over when we're all staying at my parents' house are the Turbie Twists. Believe it or not, these microfiber towels make a huge difference when it comes to drying your hair and eliminating frizz. They're also amazing if you want to multitask while your hair dries. I will definitely be ordering this four-pack for my siblings so they STOP STEALING MINE.

    Promising review: "These are amazing! They look super cute, dry your hair, and keep it from getting damaged. I like that it keeps my hair out of my face long enough for me to finish my routines before addressing my hair." —Vicki

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $33.38.

    31. An NYX matte finish setting spray that'll make sure the hour you spent perfectly applying primer, concealer, and highlighter doesn't go to waste.

    amazon.com

    This spray has a matte formula, meaning it won't turn your makeup into a greasy or oily mess.

    Promising review: "This spray is everything! Like, oh my gosh. I notice the difference if I forget to spray this on. I've walked through the humid city of New Orleans in the middle of July and my makeup stayed on from the time I got to work and was mostly still there by the time I got home, which was nine hours later. I can't rave enough about this, and I'm very picky when it comes to makeup." —missyj95

    Get it from Amazon for $8.47.

    32. Peach and Lily's Glass Skin Refining Serum that'll bring new meaning to "beauty rest" once you add it to your skincare routine.

    Ulta

    I've been using this serum for the few months (in addition to the other products in the Glass Skin Discovery Kit). It's not super oily, feels really lightweight, and smells fantastic. It's infused with peach extract to help fill your skin with vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids to keep it looking fresher than ever.

    Promising review: "I use the glass serum twice a day EVERY DAY. It brings a radiance and glow I've never found in other products; it hydrates well without becoming oily later in the day." –Nancy

    Get it from Ulta for $39.

    33. Olive and June's "Slumber Party" set, complete with cozy socks and a heel balm to help hydrate your dry, cracked skin — you'll want to buy a few sets as gifts for your friends, trust me.

    Olive & June

    I recently tested this out and I can't wait to see the long term results! I, like many of us, have cracked and dry heels in the winter (even though I basically live in Uggs). I've been weary to try one of those intense products that causes all of your skin to peel off like a snake (ew) so I was super excited to hear about Olive and June's latest product. I'm always hesitant to get any lotion or product inside my socks, so I love that it comes with a designated pair of socks to use with the balm!

    Get it from Olive & June for $26.

    34. A bottle of Tend Skin Solution you can use to reduce inflammation caused by shaving or ingrown hairs. Buh bye, razor burn.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I got waxed down there for five years straight and the lady that did it used this stuff afterwards. It work so well I went out and bought some. Ever since then I haven't had one ingrown hair (in six years). I recommend it highly and I'll never use anything else. It really is a miracle solution. Now I just keep it in the shower with me and dab a little on after every shave. Highly recommended for any type of skin." —Tennessee Fresh

    Get it from Amazon for $22.96 or Subscribe & Save for $21.81.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I've wanted to try it for the longest time after seeing what it did to a friend's acne. I've only been using it for a week, but I'm already blown away by the results. I use it at night and when I wake up in the morning my normally oily and red skin is smooth and even, and any pimples from the night before are just gone. I can't recommend this product enough this is a must-have!" —Katie

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish I discovered this product earlier. Took me six months of suffering from severe dandruff and white spots on my face. I was a week away from a visit to the dermatologist. After trying a lot of products and creams that didn't work, I decided to give it a try. And with just one wash, my life was changed. This is my only shampoo now. Been using it for almost a year now and no more white spots on my face (itchy, flaky, and terrible) or the worst, thick itchy dandruff." —Beverly Ramirez

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been searching for years for a good makeup primer that will help combat my oily skin and large pores. I read a bunch of reviews for this primer and decided to give it a try. BEST decision ever. This primer goes on so smoothly and fills in my pores perfectly. I let it sit for a few minutes before putting on my makeup which I think helps (could just be me). I would highly recommend this primer for anyone with oily skin...it's a lifesaver and a steal for the price!!" —Sarah Rose

    Promising review: "I have very dry and sensitive skin, for this reason I like to keep my skincare routine very basic. I’ve used this serum for the past few months and I can say I am very pleased.

    43. Glossier's Cloud Paint, which will add a touch of color to your cheeks with a quick swipe of lotionlike formula. Powdered blush? IDK her.

    Jessica Seib / BuzzFeed, Glossier

    My colleague Jessica Seib loves Cloud Paint (as does many other Buzzfeed employees, myself included). She said:

    "I'll be the first to admit that Cloud Paint in 'Beam' is a heavenly STAPLE. If you can't tell from the photos, it's both lightweight and moisturizing. The shade is super subtle, but equally as flattering on both a bare and full face of makeup. My daily *lewk* is forever changed — you won't regret buying!"

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight shades).

    44. A makeup brush-cleaning shampoo, because — shocker — you need to clean those!

    After reading about how necessary it is to actually clean your makeup brushes (I know, I KNOW, I should’ve been doing this for years) I was super grossed out and motivated to order the right supplies to do the job. I’ve heard good things about Ecotools makeup brush cleansing shampoo so I figured I’d start there. The Amazon listing also suggested buying a silicone makeup brush cleaning pad to go with it so I figured... why not? Well, now I’m patting myself on the back because ordering these two items was a GAME-CHANGER!

    I could not believe how much residue came off my brushes in just one cleaning. You only need to use a little dab of the shampoo, so one bottle will definitely last a long time. The silicone pad made it super easy to thoroughly lather the brushes without leaving my bathroom sink in shambles. I also loved how each section was labeled with which brush should be cleaned in each area. My brushes look brand new! Don’t hesitate like I did — buy both the shampoo and the mat ASAP.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    45. And a Winky Lux flower balm you'll find simply magical as it goes on clear then blossoms into the perfect shade of pink as it combines with your natural pH-level.

    Winky Lux

    My sister and I have this fun lil' lip balm and we love it! The flower inside is as pretty as the shade of pink it creates. I like minimal makeup so this product has been a slam dunk for me.

    Promising review: "The flower balm is my absolute favorite product from Winky Lux! It creates the perfect tinted lip and keeps them moisturized!" —Katie B.

    Get it from Winky Lux for $16 (available in five flower colors).
