    It can easily be removed and re-stuck if you don't get it perfect on the first try (I feel you)!

    Promising review: "So Pinteresting! I used this adhesive film to turn two cheap Ikea tables into less cheap-looking Ikea tables because I'm not made of money but I would like others to believe I am. Super simple to use and a ton of it for the price; I was really pleased overall. The pattern actually looks like marble, not a weird pixel-y repetitive pattern, so that's great as well." β€”Spencer House

    Get a 17-inch x 78-inch roll from Amazon for $10.47.

    4. A Golden Girls clean/dirty dishwasher magnet that'll have all your housemates saying ~thank you for being a friend~ for sparing them the eternal struggle of whether or not it's okay for them to put their gross cereal bowl in the machine.

    A hand holding the magnet, which reads "dirty" with a picture of Blanche if flipped one way and "Clean" with a picture of Rose the other

    Get it from TheRedSwanGiftShop on Etsy for $7.25 (available in two styles).

    5. e.l.f. cream eyeliner, a cruelty-free, vegan, water-resistant liner that should, thankfully, hold up against tears. You might shed a few when you realize how much money you've been wasting on fancy eyeliner brands over the years (or maybe they'll just be tears of joy when you see this stuff's price tag).,

    Promising review: "I've used other cream eyeliners β€” Mac, Bobbi Brown, etc. β€” and this one is by far the better product. Where others were dry or smudged-looking, this creamy eyeliner goes on smoothly with a solid, deep pigment. Use one layer for a smoky kohl look, or get the sharpness and depth of a liquid liner with two coats. It even works on the water line without smearing or running. The angled brush makes the perfect cat eye shape if applied flat at the outer corners of the eye. The only thing I would change is to invest in an angled eyeliner brush with a longer handle β€” the one that comes with the liner is a bit short. We'll see if it can outlast the sweat and humidity of summer, but so far I only have to apply it once a day. I even made the mistake of rubbing my eye and expected a disaster, but this stuff didn't budge!" β€”Eden Spatz-bender

    Get it from Amazon for $5.30.

    6. A whimsical double-layer bear face glass ~ear~ to make your morning juice, your afternoon tea, and everything in between a little sweeter.

    Promising review: "I expected this to be plastic, but it's actually glass which I am thrilled about! This is adorable. Not even ashamed to say I bought this for myself, but it would make a perfect gift! :)" β€”Katherine Beccera

    Get it from Amazon for $8.68+ (available in two colors).

    7. An absolutely adorbs Hello Kitty razor set that's more than just a pretty face. In addition to the precious printed handle, it's got an ergonomic grip, built-in conditioning bar so you won't need shaving cream, and a four-blade head. Give it to me right meow!


    It comes with four replaceable heads.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite razor of all time, and when I spotted this limited-edition one I just had to buy it. The quality is great as usual! The printing on the razor is great and just overall super cute. I think this razor is great for people just starting out shaving, because it's cute and their razor heads are so moisturizing! While I have been shaving for a while, I love this razor since I have sensitive skin. Just overall 10/10!" β€”Ayden Irish

    Get it from Amazon for $19.91+ (available in two styles).

    It's dishwasher safe and non-stick.

    Promising review: "Hubby was not real thrilled when I decided to buy this item after watching someone in a video make a stuffed burger using one. He said his burgers were 'just fine.' Well, let me tell you, after the first use, he came inside while grilling and said 'OK, so you were right. The burgers turned out perfectly sized, and because they are all shaped evenly, they cook better and don't fall through the grates.' I loved the fact that I could stick some cheese or olives in the middle of it and have a stuffed burger. Just buy it. I think you'll love your new burger patty maker!" β€”Rebecca R.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.56.

    Shots shots shots shots shots shots EVERYBODDDYYYY!

    Promising review: "It's like hair MAGIC... seriously. I didn't expect them to actually live up to all the hype built up around the product, but I couldn't be more glad to be wrong in this instance! I color treat my hair and even though I've cut back a lot on heat styling, I still use heat to style when I'm going out somewhere. I'm 40 now and I have been coloring and using heat since my early teens, so at one point my thin, fine hair was like straw. I've got it back to an extremely healthy-looking state. These rescue shots make that upkeep much simpler and they are so reasonably priced. Though these are supposed to be one-use capsules, since my hair is thin and fine I get two uses out of each one. The first time I used one was a week after coloring my hair. I had done my regular dye job, then used a highlight kit to put in highlights for summer...well that highlight kit was a disaster, so I had to color it A THIRD time in a two-week period to get it back to its regular color, and it stressed my hair more than a bit. One treatment with this, and you literally couldn't tell what I'd just put my poor hair through. I had already tuned the ends and this made my hair so soft, silky and healthy-looking. I couldn't believe it. And it stayed that way for all over a week, when I did the next treatment. I HIGHLY recommend this hair treatment and I will continue to use it as long as they sell it!" β€”Kindle Customer

    14. A shockingly affordable, soft mini skirt that's basically fashion cordu-royalty β€” it rules no matter if you rock it with a graphic tee and sneakers or a sleek top and booties.

    Amazon, Heather Braga/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Heather Braga has and loves this cutie! Here's what she has to say about it: "This skirt was there for me in my time of need! I had a broken foot, so when last-minute plans came up and I was in need of a cute outfit (that didn’t require trying to pull pants on over my cast) I took a chance on this lil’ number. And I’m so glad I did! It’s stretchy, soft, and made my butt look fabulous. Def ordering in another color.”

    Promising review: "This cheddar cheese powder is amazing! I have added it to popcorn and used it to make a mac 'n' cheese substitute similar to the blue box variety, which came out perfect. It tastes very similar without all the chemicals and additives. I will repurchase. My child with sensory issues will only eat Kraft and she approved. Mom win!" β€”Aurora Cosmos

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89.

    17. A moo-tiful velvet cow-print scrunchie, because cow print is one of the most fun trends for fall, IMHO. Also, cows are probably jealous that ponies get all the glory when it comes to ponytails.

    Promising review: "I would give these 10 stars if I could, but I'm sure Freya would give it a -3. I think she looks like an angelic banana, but she is not amused. I don't believe this causes her physical discomfort, but her self-esteem has plummeted. Long story short, makes your cat look stupid, as planned. LOL." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get three pairs from Aeropostale for $4.38 (originally $10.65).

    20. A squee-worthy Jiji pin that will unfortunately most likely be delivered with your regular mail, not by a young witch in training and her delivery service. But it's still pretty much perfect.

    The pin, which features a chubby Jiji the cat from "Kiki's Delivery Service" in his cage with the text "If I fits I sits"

Adds a touch of color and a bit of shine, but not overly done. Simple and perfect. It's got just the right texture, and it def stays on and wears beautifully through even my morning coffee!" β€”Megshado19

    Get it from Intimina for $7.61 (originally $8.95).

    25. A sweet silicone cleansing brush, which is super cute but also super useful. Just load this little dude with your cleanser for a sudsational deep clean.


    Promising review: "This is a great cleansing and exfoliating tool. I bought this because my Clarisonic broke. I used this two or three times a week and found it to be a cute and effective tool. I rarely wear makeup, but when I do, it's often heavy. This tool (in combination with my cleanser) got it off every time. My makeup is also dark, but it never stained. It's really good at clearing up the blackheads on my nose. After reading some of the reviews when I initially purchased it, I became curious and decided to test how sanitary/safe it is. After five months, I removed the sponge and turned the silicone inside out. Besides two tiny pieces of dead skin, it was fine. There wasn't an odor or mold. However, similar to a Clarisonic brush head, for sanitary purposes, this should be replaced every three months or so. I look forward to getting this product again." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.50.

    It's cruelty-free and vegan and available in an unscented option or one with notes of lemongrass, amber, tonka bean, and cedar leaf.

    Promising review: "Intoxicating. The smell of this candle/oil is unreal. It creates such a sultry massage without being greasy or sticky. I 100% will buy again and give as gifts." β€”Holly B.

    Get it from Maude for $15 (available in two scents and in a full size version for $25).
