1. 78% off an appealing peel-off charcoal face mask.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I finally gave in to trying a charcoal mask, and this one did not disappoint. It is easy to put on and acts quickly. I suggest layering it on a bit thicker than you think you need, as it will make it easier to peel off. The biggest difference in the skin is noticeable the next day. It really cleans pores and smooths skin."—Isabel D. Almaraz

Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (originally $49.99).

2. 20% off a Bioderma pore refiner cream that'll make you one step closer to ~porefection~.

Promising Review: "I usually purchase this product through Beautylish but the price was much too good to pass up here! Works great at priming my skin, helps with preventing shine throughout the day, and also has no scent! This product also helps at making foundation go on much smoother!! Love it, and a little goes a long way." —AnaGet it from Amazon for $15.90 (originally $19.90).

3. 63% off a black beauty sponge no one will be able to tell you haven't washed.

Promising Review: "Love this product! I'm a makeup artist and I have tried many beauty sponges, but this right here is the exact dupe of the beautyblender for half the price. I'm glad one of my clients introduced me to this sponge. From now on, this will be the only one I will buy!" —Blanca A DeLeonGet it from Amazon for $6.97 (originally $19.00).

4. 34% off an adorable headband that'll be just ~purrrfect~ for keeping your hair out of your face during your beauty routine.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This super adorable headband fits great and is really soft! It came in exactly when it was expected, was placed in a nice little bag, and even came with cute little samples of other products. It's made from a great, sturdy material, and it definitely keeps back all of my hair so I can wash my face, do my makeup, or anything else of the sort. This is definitely going to make me a bit more excited to wash my face (especially in the mornings when I first wake up). And it's definitely worth buying-especially for such a great price!"—Leslie Ann

Get it from Amazon for $5.95 (originally $8.99).

5. 52% off a set of 32 makeup brushes AND a lovely leather pouch to hold them.

amazon.com

Finally, you can have a brush for every occasion.

Get them from Amazon for $18.99 (originally $39.86).

6. Or 17% off a slightly more compact set of ombre makeup brushes with a travel pouch.

Promising Review: "I'm used to MAC brushes, and I only bought this set for travel, but I have to say I was totally impressed with the quality of these brushes. Super soft, and the perfect size to fit in a carry on bag or luggage case. They are comparable to and even better than some of my MAC brushes. The case is also really elegant and it's made of a padded faux leather. I really was skeptical about the price, but as soon as I used them I fell in love with the quality. Totally recommend these, for beginners and professionals."—EmiGet them from Amazon for $14.86 (originally $17.99).

7. 47% off a Maybelline eyeshadow palette with twelve glamorous shades.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Usually, I'm skeptical when it comes to purchasing drugstore makeup products. I have had a change of heart after purchasing this palette. I am in love with this palette. Not only is it affordable but it is also a quality product. The colors in this palette have great pigment for a drugstore eyeshadow palette. You can use this product to create a day to night smoky eye or whatever eye look you want. I also love how this palette gives you step by step instructions on how to create different looks. It's very easy to use and is great for beginners! You can pretty much create an eye look like a pro."—Sharde Nicole

Get it from Amazon for $6.39 (originally $11.99).

8. 36% off an argan oil moisturizer that'll make your skin as smooth as silk.

Promising Review: "I've tried many expensive moisturizers, oils, and serums, and none compare to this product. I was initially worried that because it's an oil, my face might break out (as it does with olive or coconut oil — yes, I've tried everything!), but it's actually done the opposite. My skin's never been so clear or soft. I have combination skin, and thought it might leave the oilier spots too oily, but it's effectively saturated the dry and oilier spots evenly--making my whole face soft and blemish free."—AmyGet it from Amazon for $6.44 (originally $9.99).

amazon.com

This kit also includes contouring and highlighting instructions for beginners!

Promising Review: "I'm a beginner when it comes to using makeup and this palette has helped me a lot, especially with the application instructions that are included. You can also go to Aesthetica's web page where they have more tutorials. I've never liked the way my skin feels with some makeup products, but I decided to give it a try and I have no regrets! It looks good and professional, and the package is so nice! I love it !"—Heidy Soler

10. 15% off a lightweight, long-lasting face powder that will actually make your makeup look flawless.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I have used Coty Airspun powder for as long as I can remember. It was the first loose powder I tried as a teen 30 years ago and I still swear by it today. I have a fair complexion and my skin is oily. I've always loved the fact that this powder came in a shade that matched my complexion. It's been awesome for oil control and doesn't give me an over-powdered look like some face powders do. The fine lines in my lower lids do not get that cakey look, nor does this powder settle in my pores. I've used this powder to set liquid, cream, and mineral foundations with great results."—Brenda L

Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (originally $6.99; available in six shades; discount applicable to four).

11. 25% off a NYX blush palette guaranteed to give you the rosiest cheeks in the garden.

Promising Review: "I love this blush palette. The colors are great. Everything you could want and for a great price. The quality is fantastic. It wears well, applies easily, blends easily, and stays on my cheeks all day. It's still quite noticeable, even after 12+hrs (I wear it on top of my foundation and use NYX setting spray). If you want a few choices of different blushes daily and don't want to spend a fortune, I highly recommend trying this."—Jill SGet it from Amazon for $15.09 (originally $20).

12. 11% off a NYX precision liquid eyeliner pen for a clean, sharp look.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I don't usually write reviews, but I had to rave about this eyeliner because it's amazing. My go-to eyeliner used to be the Kat Von D tattoo liner, but this is my new favorite. I think the quality is even better overall, plus it's at least $10 cheaper. It basically fits all of the requirements I would want in my perfect eyeliner. It's affordable, extremely black, opaque, easy to use, waterproof, stays on for a long time, and the tip is quite thin so you can get wings as sharp as a sword. My cat eyes have been turning out so clean and beautiful."— Cat ❤️

13. Up to 34% off a Physician's Formula super shimmery highlighter you can probably see from space.

amazon.com

Promising Review: I really like the feel and finish of this highlighter. It is so buttery, smooth, and creamy. It isn't a powder at all; it's actually a very smooth cream that dries down to a powder finish. I've found it to be long-lasting and really pretty. I love this highlighter and because I have a light medium, warm under-toned skin color, the champagne color really pops against my skin tone."—Kenetrice J.

Get it from Amazon for $7.25+ (originally $10.95; available in four colors).

14. 25% off a Wet 'n' Wild highlighting palette that'll give you a serious ~glow~ up.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is so pretty! I don't normally use highlighters but I wanted to try some, and this was definitely cheap enough to at least give a try. I actually got asked if I had someone do my makeup professionally when I wore this. It is very easy to apply and the color is wonderful. I barely had to put my brush into the palette and it was full of color. The colors are absolutely beautiful. Wonderful product for the money."—LDM

15. 40% off 2.8% glycolic acid exfoliating pads so that you don't fall asleep without taking care of your skin.

Promising Review: "I’ve been using this pad in the mornings and the evenings for a few months. I have skin problems, and I’m also 40. These wipes help brighten my skin and keep it moisturized. I would recommend these to anyone who wants to keep their skin looking refreshed."—MercuryMorning

16. 14% off some clutch Mario Badescu eye makeup remover that'll remove your eyeliner in a snap.

Promising Review: "I've been using the Mario Badescu Eye Make-up Remover Oil for a couple of years. Now it doesn't remove 100% of my eye makeup in one swipe, but I challenge you to find one that does because that'd be actual sorcery. I have used many different eye makeup remover oils in the past and they all tend to burn my eyes, or simply don't remove enough makeup to make it worth buying. This one is gentle and removes as much of my waterproof mascara as I could expect from any makeup remover. For the price, this stuff is especially amazing because one bottle of this will usually last me one year. A little goes a long way" — BrittanyGet it on Amazon for $6.00 (originally $7).Looking for more? Check out the best makeup removers at every price point at BuzzFeed Reviews.

Promising Review: "Incredible!!! I swear this has changed my life. It makes my makeup last all day....literally 12+ hours. It has even kept my makeup on and smudge-proof through a two-hour nap!! I'm so incredibly impressed. I have very oily skin and the 'dewy' finish has not made me look or feel greasy. I seriously love this stuff sooo much!!!"—JaNaeSyx
