    16. A couple of beauty spatulas designed to get every last drop of your expensive foundation, lip gloss, or lotion. Don't let a poorly-designed bottle get you down!

    Amazon / Via

    BuzzFeed writer Kaysey Davis says, "The regular spatula is great for medium to large sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. It's long enough to get to the bottom of the containers and the end of the handle is on an angle so you have more control. The mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I used it all the time when the pump on one of my serum bottles stopped working. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare."
