    Promising review: "I actually like everything about these brushes! They are really pretty, the case is convenient and cute, and the bristles are very soft and delicately dyed the colors in the handle. They don't shed on my face and they are so nice. This is my favorite makeup brush purchase and in the past I have paid twice as much for brushes that didn't impress me like these do." —Em

    2. A double-ended wing stamp/liner pen so they can create the perfect cat eye without having to redo their entire eye look about five times before finally getting even wings.

    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 two-pack from Amazon for $13.97 (available in three sizes).

    Promising review: "Vegan and organic ingredients! They come individually wrapped in a very cute box (I bought it for myself, but it would make a great gift box). My favorite scents so far are definitely rose and lavender. I don't have a jacuzzi tub or anything fancy, but one bath bomb makes my entire bathroom smell wonderful and my body felt very relaxed after I step out of the tub. I pair this with my essential oils diffuser and it's basically a spa day for me. My skin felt really smooth after the bath. For the price I think it's definitely worth it!" —Shiberu

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $13.99.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a pro makeup artist and this palette is better quality than many of higher-end brands. Especially UD, as their palettes are chalky/powdery and have a ton of fallout. I absolutely love CS, their palettes and brushes." —Deanna Leviso

    instagram.com, instagram.com, Anamaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this product. Works wonders and really does what it advertises: holds hair very well without damaging it. Heard that if it’s stretched too much you can put it under the sun and it shrinks back! Yay. Also it’s much more hygienic than a regular hair tie. I also use them on my daughter. She loves them because they are easy to remove!" —Amazon Customer

    Sephora

    These products are free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this set, I wanted to try each of these individual products but then Fenty came out with this set and I had to buy it. The lipgloss is amazing, it doesn’t feel too sticky and the color is beautiful, I can also feel that it moisturizes my lips and leaves them feeling nourished. The highlighter it absolutely stunning and blinding, I’ve gotten so many compliments on it and a little goes a long way. The color of the highlighter is so beautiful, it’s very golden with a peach hue and shows up very nicely on my fair skin tone and I think this would look good on any other skin tone as well." —mayalynch

    Get it from Sephora for $23.

    Frxxxtion Stick 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser

    Promising review: "I honestly bought this thinking it would be just a small little something to try once for fun. NOOO. I don't wash my face without the little pink scrubber. Ever. As in I was out of town and left it and went to the store to get another one. It's the perfect texture to clean well without feeling like your face is falling off. The stick is my new favorite way to do a mini mask — just glide it on over my face, let it sit for a few minutes, and scrub in the shower. I feel like a new person." —Gillian A

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Out of the four masks, the shea chamomile was the best. It hydrated, moisturized, smoothed, and gave my skin a nice glow. I only used about a teaspoon for my whole face (and stored the rest in airtight Tupperware). Left it on for about 15-20 mins, rinsed, let my face dry, applied moisturizer and voila...I was beautiful again!" —Kim

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    12. A pack of four Burt's Bees moisturizing lip balms in fruity flavors that they'll want to carry in their purse or backpack to avoid harsh, chapped lips all winter.

    Amazon

    This set includes four moisturizing lip balms in Wild Cherry, Pink Grapefruit, Coconut & Pear, and Strawberry.

    Promising review: "I live for Burt's Bees. These moisturizing balms are my holy grail for anywhere from the office to nights out. The color is buildable, so you can go sheer or bold. Honestly, the tones blend so well with your natural lips — it's no thick lipstick! I put it on at the beginning of the day and reapply ever so often — but if I forget the color fades out naturally (no scary lip-liner look!). Honestly ladies, I swear by this product!" —AmazonFangirl

    Get it from Amazon for $19.89.

    13. A Tony Moly Tako Pore Blackhead Scrub Stick containing a blend of marine plant extracts, black mud, and charcoal in the cutest little container ever, to help them unclog those pores.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Here’s the thing: a scrub is never going to solve your blackhead issues long term. But there is truly no other product like this. It’s an amazing quick fix to get your pores unclogged and less noticeable, and once you’ve done that, slap on some retinol/salicylic acid with a moisturizer to prevent those pores from getting nasty again. Adorable packaging, unique product, and it's effective!" —Molly K. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50.

    Promising review: "This is the best liquid blush I have ever used! It doesn't settle into lines or pores and looks so natural! I also love that I can mix two or more colors together to make a custom color for me!" —Emily

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six colors).

    15. A nail polish holder to gift to someone who is always on top of giving themself a fresh coat of paint. This way they can paint their nails in peace, without accidentally knocking the bottle over on the floor or trying to hold it between their legs.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? Definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish, so that it would be in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me, or felt comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining your paint job. Just one tip: move the holder to your pointer finger when doing your thumb." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 21 colors/patterns).

    Nordstrom

    Get it from Nordstrom for $16.

    17. A Coty Airspun Translucent Powder with a lightweight finish that'll keep their stunning looks from smudging or budging throughout the day.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This powder is amazing and I cannot speak highly enough about it. I have very oily skin so setting powder is a must for me and this is an extremely amazing powder for baking or overall setting. I personally pair this product with the Covergirl loose setting powder and my makeup looks flawless and lasts all day. I have used this powder over very heavy foundations like Dermablend and have even worn it on top of powder foundation for a little extra coverage and it never looks cakey or dry. The smell of this is amazing and the fallout from container to face is very minimal. Because my skin is oily, I have always struggled when I switch products to keep my skin clear from breakouts, but when I first tried this, I had no breakouts at all. I would easily compare this to the Dermablend loose setting powder on everything except the price, which makes this a steal!!" —Rebecca Roberts

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (available in six shades, including translucent).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've only had this for about three days and I just can't stop playing with all the colors. OMG, are the mattes pigmented!! Never have I seen such great mattes in a cheap palette — they're even hard to find in pricier palettes. So beautiful and versatile. It's a collection of my FAVORITE shades and I couldn't be happier!" —Merkury Volkanic

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    19. A double-sided compact mirror they can carry around at all times just in case they ever need a quick touch up or face check.

    Amazon

    One side is magnified 5x or 10x, and the other side is a regular mirror.

    Promising review: "Everything I hoped it would be, and more. Small, lightweight, sleek design, solid construction, and both the regular and the magnifying mirrors deliver clear images. I purchased a similar mirror with high ratings at the same time (I couldn't decide which to get, so I got both), and this one is the clear winner. In fact, I ordered three more so I could keep one in the car, bathroom, purse, etc." —Mick

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available with two magnifications).

    20. An Essence lengthening mascara to give them a nice dramatic lash, because sometimes that's all it takes to feel fabulous!

    amazon.com

    This mascara is my all-time favorite! It really makes my eyes pop and it's SO affordable! Plus, it's gluten-free and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an eight-hour work day right to the gym and sweat like crazy... and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    21. A ColourPop x Disney lipgloss perfect for the beauty guru who is also obsessed with all things Disney. This gloss will give them a subtle shimmer and add a little extra glitz to their everyday look.

    Get it from ColourPop for $8.

    22. A NYX setting spray to lock their cut crease in place, while keeping their skin hydrated at the same time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I didn't expect much from this mist, but I was desperate and the reviews seemed hopeful so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed with this product. My face had become aggravated by the switch from summer to fall because of the loss of moisture in the air and influx of drying winds and also drying indoor heat caused by forced air in the home. All this caused my cheeks to get itchy and dry and irritated. In my desperate effort find some relief I upped my moisture game... The mist is not greasy or heavy it actually feels like water but it provides a nice light shield of moisture, gives a light dewy finish, and slows down the dehydration of the skin. I recommend it and I'd buy again." —Potatochips101

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    23. A Lip Smacker unicorn magic lip balm that'll make the most adorable stocking stuffer for kids or anyone who grew up collecting all the different Lip Smacker flavors. (We can all agree that Dr. Pepper was the best right?)

    Get it from Sephora for $18 (originally $28; available in three shades).

    25. A hair finishing stick to take care of their annoying flyaways and baby hairs within seconds. Plus, it's made of natural plant ingredients.

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: I’m honestly really stinking happy with my little sponges. They double in size as soon as you get them damp but they don’t soak up like any of my foundation so nothing goes to waste. It applies my makeup smoothly and works just as well as a Beauty Blender but for a fraction of the price. Totally worth it." —Corgi Lover

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $8.99.

    29. A paraben- and cruelty-free waterproof eyeshadow primer that'll help their eye makeup apply better and last longer.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So let me start by saying I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From high end to low. Mac, Lorac, Urban Decay... they don't hold a candle to Thank Me Later. I have very oily skin. Using this primer, shadow lasts a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands, if I'm lucky. I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag, and I had to buy the full-size product straight away! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I love this stuff!" —Melissa Mae

    31. A pair of silicone face mask brushes for your friend who is a self-care queen and lives for a good face mask. These will help spread the mask evenly and minimize the mess.

    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, 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 pack of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    32. And an Undone Beauty three-in-one lip and cheek palette formulated with coconut extract for a sheer, dewy glow to help liven up their face when it is feeling a bit dull.
