    1. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner slays the game by keeping cat eyes on *point* and flawless all day, every day. It goes on smooth and (most importantly) stays without flaking, smudging, or any other nonsense.,

    Promising review: "Stila is the absolute best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. It doesn't fade or crack and stays on through sleeping and tears. It's very smudge-proof and it does not flake AT ALL. It dries quickly and stays. It's also easy to clean off at the end of the day. No hard scrubbing to get it off — makeup wipes will take it off easily. It's amazing for creating perfect wings or drawing artfully for Halloween. It's perfect for everyday subtle looks and for getting more creative and wild. I can use this eyeliner for months at a time without having to repurchase." —Chick

    2. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water gently cleanses *and* removes makeup! It minimizes pores, controls oils, and leaves you feeling SO fresh and SO clean. The Fountain of Youth is made of micellar water, I'm convinced.

    This micellar water works for all skin types and is paraben-, fragrance-, sulfate-, and silicone-free.

    Promising review: "Holy grail of makeup remover! This stuff is ahh-mazing! Your dry skin will be no more. I have dry skin that it exacerbated by the dry, hot Texas summers and the cold, windy winters. Constant use of makeup wipes make my face dry and I don't like the feel of my skin after using them. Lately, I have been in love with liquid lipsticks. The use of the micellar water cuts my makeup removal time in half. My skin feels soft and my lips are kissable! You won't regret this purchase!" —Gr84lmom

    Get it from Amazon for $5.69.

    3. Sdara Skincare's Microneedle Derma Roller encourages collagen production by using itty bitty micro-needles. This can help reduce acne scarring, pore size, and discoloration. RIP big pores, you won't be missed even a little bit!,

    This derma roller has a *teeny tiny* .25mm needle length that won't hurt your skin at all, but allows serums and such to sink deeeeep in for maximum effect!

    Promising review: "BUY THIS NOW. I have genetically bad skin. I have huge pores, discoloration, acne, and acne scars. I am a 21-year-old and I go to Mayo Clinic Dermatology. They said my only hope was having laser treatment to fill my scars and pores. My friends showed me a video of a derma roller and I spent months doing research. I finally decided to take the plunge and order this product. I have used this about eight or nine times and my skin is looking considerably better. I still have acne, obviously, but this is helping to heal my old scars and shrink my monstrous pores. I love it. I haven't combined the roller with any special treatments for better absorption. My skin looks tighter, healthier, and better than it has in many, many years." —Jennifer Beranek

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    4. Nars Blush helps you turn heads all day long with its incredible colors and super staying power. The shades "Orgasm" and "Outlaw" have earned their place in the makeup bags of adoring fans everywhere — and NOT just for their killer names.


    Promising review: "Blush is my favorite beauty product, but I got so frustrated with having to reapply it all day that I decided to splurge on a Nars blush last winter, in hopes it would be long-wearing. Well, it is, and I've found my holy grail blush. This is the ONLY blush (powder, liquid, gel, stain, cream) that lasts all day for me; I can apply it at 6am before work and still have it on when I wash my makeup off at 10pm. There is no other product I've found that performs like that. It's also a good value for the price (which I originally thought was a bit steep), because you have to use so little of the product. I have used the 'Desire' and 'Albatross' blushes every day since I purchased them about a year ago, and they still look almost brand new. Nars blushes are a MUST-have for anyone who wears makeup — there is just nothing better out there!" —yourwateryhands

    Get it from Sephora for $30 (available in 18 shades).

    5. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask vacuums out pores and is lauded by basically everyone. It leaves skin smoother, pores smaller, and breakouts begging for mercy. YES, it even works on cystic acne!,

    Don't forget the apple cider vinegar you'll need for mixing!

    Promising review: "This product is AMAZING. It's an official holy grail product of mine. I ideally use it once a week, and it feels as if angels themselves have taken the time to delicately renew my skin with the magical touch of their wings. Ok, but really. I wear foundation daily, have combination and sensitive skin, and require hypoallergenic products. I truly feel this product is a part of how I maintain week after week breakout-free. I mix with equal parts water and vinegar and use the sensitive-skin time recommendation to avoid over-drying or any tenderness afterward, moisturize, and I'm good to go! I also find it works WONDERS as a spot treatment for the pimples that do happen to appear every-so-often. I love this stuff, use it often, and it still lasts FOREVER. Literally the best mask I've ever used." —S.L.P.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in two sizes).

    6. Urban Decay Primer Potion prepares your lids so you can lovingly apply your shadow in the morning knowing full well it'll be locked in place all the livelong day. Your hard work shall not be in vain!


    Promising review: "I love how they call it 'potion' because it really works like magic! This primer is a must-have for anyone who loves makeup. It intensifies your eyeshadow color and never, ever does it let your eyeshadow crease. I've even worn it for more then 24 hours and my eye makeup will still be flawless. Application is easy — I like to start applying shadow when it's still a little wet to get a bolder, rich, intense color. I will forever use this eyeshadow primer." —tdotcat

    Get it from Sephora for $24.

    7. Lucas Papaw Ointment keeps lips, hands, feet, or really anything hydrated! This cure-all has countless uses, but reviewers love it as a quick fix for chapped lips and for making lipstick and gloss apply smoothly and evenly.,

    Promising review: "A must-have for all seasons! I suffer from extremely chapped lips in the winter months and have been looking for a lip balm that was not petroleum-based. This is perfect for wearing under lipsticks and lip glosses — it does not thin out the color and leaves your lips moisturized. This fits perfectly for my needs. It was recommended to me by my cousins in Australia, and now I'm recommending it to you!" —m.grace

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    8. LA Girl's Beauty Brick Nude Eyeshadow Palette serves incredible eye looks without making you spend your entire life savings. Create a day look or even a night look for once now that you can actually afford to go out!


    Promising review: "This shadow is way more pigmented than I had expected. It's very easy to pick up color and it slides on effortlessly! I've tried the Naked palette ($54) and this compares almost the same! I'd say if you are on a budget and need a good shadow with multiple colors, LA Girl Nudes is your holy grail! It will be my go-to from here on out!" —Rachelle Mattei

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in four colorways).

    9. Mac Viva Glam Lipstick laughs in the face of science and is formulated to be somehow creamy *yet* long-wearing. It's the only product that I've kept as part of my makeup routine since I first got it seven years ago. Yes, that is my longest relationship and no, I have no regrets.


    My aunt gets me a tube of Viva Glam I for Christmas every year, and I hope she never stops! It's the perfect shade of red and goes with basically everything. Viva Glam I is the reason for the season.

    Promising review: "Viva Glam I is the most amazing red lipstick! It is the perfect color, especially when lined with a MAC Mahogany lip liner. It is the best of ALL of the Viva Glam line. It stays in place, looks good for a long time and is a classic. I never leave home without it. I recommend this to EVERYONE! I Love you VIVA GLAM I." —Styleclub

    Get it from Nordstrom for $18.50 (available in five shades).

    10. Mighty Patch continues to gain major popularity for both their effectiveness at lessening breakouts *and* how easy they are to use. Just pop on the patch and WHAM! They go to work on sucking all that gunk out of your pimples.


    Promising review: "If you have issues with acne (especially those nasty whiteheads) but can't afford all the fancy step-by-step treatments out there, you at least need to buy these. This truly worked at minimizing my pimples, sucking up the wound, and keeping big pimples from getting worse. It really does draw up the pus to the patch! I leave one on overnight and just slowly peel off and then wipe away any remaining pus. I even let my mom who was visiting try it on her pimple and she loved them, so I had to order more!" —Megan Meehan

    Get a pack of 36 from Amazon for $11.88.

    11. Hard As Hoof Nail Strengthening Cream fortifies your nails so their growth can reach — neigh, exceed — your expectations. The coconut-scented cream uses calcium, vitamins, and hydrogenated jojoba oil to prevent chipping, splitting, peeling, and cracking. Tl;dr: this'll result in strong, fast-growing nails.,

    Promising review: "Amazing! My nails have transformed and have NEVER been this healthy-looking and strong. This is a must-have product. You will see results in about a month of daily application." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    12. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation broke the internet when it dropped — it's that good. Pro Filt'r users love this foundation for its full yet breathable coverage, pore-blurring effect, shine-reducing power, and range of 50 shades. Also it gets you one degree closer to Rihanna, which is honestly priceless., Ignacia Fulcher / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I was definitely hesitant to buy this foundation at first because of all of the hype and because I had never bought a 'luxury' foundation before. But this exceeded all of my expectations! This is a nice medium coverage foundation, which means if you don’t want to look too heavy, you can just apply one layer and be good. But if you need to, you can build it up in areas you need more coverage and it doesn’t look cakey. At first, I was afraid this would be too matte and cling onto my dry patches. It doesn’t do that at all. It’s a nice soft matte and honestly feels like I’m wearing nothing. Plus, the shade range is perfect. I’ve never had a foundation that matches my skin as well as this one. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this as it is my new go-to foundation. It's for sure worth it. Thanks, Rihanna!" —NicComputer

    Get it from Sephora for $32 (available in 50 shades).

    13. And! Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter reviewers agree this work work work work works for any skintone. While "Trophy Wife" is a crowd-fave, all of these long-wear cream-to-powder shades and duos are beloved by many.


    This highlighter is paraben-, sulfate-, and phthalate-free, as well as — like all Fenty products — cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "One word: GLOWIN'. Our girl Riri really thought about us when she created this highlighter. I've heard a lot about 'Trophy Wife', but this champagne color is to die for! The product applies smoothly on the face and it's highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. 'Mean Money' has a subtle touch perfect for everyday wear with simple contour while Hu$tla Baby has this glowy bright champagne color for nightwear. I do have dry skin and yet this doesn't look flaky on me." —deniseplease

    Get it from Sephora for $34 (available in six shades).

    14. The Makeup Eraser removes all of your makeup with just *drumroll please* water! Even so-called waterproof makeup is no match for this towel. As long as I live in a world where the Makeup Eraser exists, I am too blessed to be stressed.


    Promising review: "As someone who has suffered from skin sensitivity for most of my adult life, I have continued to struggle finding something that removes my makeup with ease while also protecting my skin. This eraser not only removes all of my makeup without irritation, it also removes waterproof mascara without any issue! Cleaning is a breeze, as I simply throw it in the wash or hand wash with baby shampoo." —Brittany Saxon

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    15. Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner invigorates and cleanses while also reducing redness, dullness, and breakouts. Its signature rose scent makes it the perfect romantic gift from you to your face. sweet.

    AnaMaria Glavan / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have been using this twice a day for about a month now. After I cleanse my face, I use a cotton round and apply it all over my face and neck. I noticed reduction in redness and spots within two weeks! Just last night my boyfriend asked 'Did you already take your makeup off?' I had just cleansed my face and applied my Thayer's. When I told him so, he said 'You look like you’re still wearing your makeup!' As someone who has always had some issues with acne and uneven skin tone, the reduction in redness is a godsend! Definitely worth the cost to try it if you’re even slightly intrigued by this product’s abilities." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $6.64 (available in three scents).

    16. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara lives up to the fangirls' hype, making lashes voluminous as can be without fallout. Its ~curvaceous~ brush and collagen-boosted formula make lashes unbelievably full without a million coats. Is it really better than sex? I guess that depends on who you're having sex with, but rest assured, it's VERY good!


    Promising review: "I have basically no eyelashes to begin with, but this mascara actually made it look like I have them! It goes on in sufficient amounts and really volumizes. I do not have to put on a billion coats to get the look I want. It's quick and easy and really is what the name states." —NataliaMatusz

    Get it from Sephora for $12+ (available in two sizes).

    17. Glossier Could Paint ~cirrus~ly brings out your cheeks with a gel-cream formula that's just so. dang. pretty. Applied with the fingers, it's sheer yet buildable and ultra-seamless, so you can make it look like you have a lovely natural flush *or* layer your way to a blush-forward look.


    I use Cloud Paint in the shade Puff literally every day. Even if I don't do a full face, it makes me feel more put together and truly like a ~pretty lil' cloud~.

    Promising review: "I'm SO OBSESSED with these blushes! I use the colors 'Dusk' and 'Beam'. I love using 'Dusk' on an everyday basis. It compliments my warm, light to medium skintone really well and makes my cheeks look so fresh and glowy. I like using 'Beam' when I want a more bright cheek look. I like to apply the blush using my fingers. It gives my cheeks the perfect amount of color. GET THIS BLUSH! You won't regret it." —bittersweetmich

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

    18. TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum treats your skin to much-needed nutrition and is love at first drop. Also formulated with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, this plant-based serum helps to lessen dark circles, sun spots, redness, and breakouts.

    Promising review: "The results are unbelievable. I was a bit skeptical because all the reviews were from caucasian women. I was slightly worried that my skin would not respond as well but I was quite mistaken. With or without makeup, my skin is bright, smooth and my spots are disappearing. One other result I am sure a number of people have not noticed is that your palms get softer, too. I guess the residue on the palms makes them soft and supple." —Mayowa O.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    19. Fanola No Yellow Shampoo prevents all the platinum qts of the world from getting brassy. Fanola users not only love their icy look, but are stoked to rarely have to return to the salon for expensive toning sessions. If I had known about this shampoo when I was platinum, I wouldn't have had to make those my $1-box-of–mac 'n' cheese years.

    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

    Promising review: "This is a great product! I've been being using this the past two weeks to reduce acne and it really works! You can see the change from one day to another: it reduces the color and the bumpiness of your acne. At night I apply it directly to each one of the breakouts. It not only helps with the acne you have, but also helps preventing any more breakouts." —Cliente de Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.59.

    21. Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow turns glitter eyeshadow application from a luxurious chore to a luxurious delight. The easy wand applicator lets you swipe on your ~lewk~ and the pigmented color ensures it won't take 1,500 hours of cosmetology school to pull it off.


    Promising review: ""I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS STUFF. Great glitter payout with little to no fallout if you do it correctly, and you don't have to worry about the mess of glitter glue and messy loose glitter. I have accidentally slept in this overnight, twice, and was able to rock the glitter eyeshadow to work the next day with no touchups, and I didn't even use an eyeshadow primer either time, although I did use a setting spray. Give this a go if you are looking for sparkly eyeshadow." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24 (available in 13 shades).

    22. Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer punches above its weight as a full coverage, matte finish wunderkind that has taken the beauty community by storm. People love Shape Tape for its flawless-not-fake look and ability to, well, *conceal* under-eye circles perfectly.

    Promising review: "I have severe dark circles under my eyes and this is the only concealer that I will ever use. Once I tried it I was hooked. It's the only full coverage concealer that stays on all day and doesn't look cakey once applied. It doesn't even matter if I use too much, because it blends so nicely." —Cara C

    Get it from Tarte for $27 (available in 30 shades).

    Promising review: "I have purchased three jars of this and can't go a day without putting it on morning and night. I'm in my late 30's and people constantly tell me I look 10–20 years younger. I used to having drooping eyelids and , plus fine lines and textured skin. I started using this product three months ago. It's not an overnight fix, but with time and consistent use, I noticed a big difference. I have actually stopped having to wear heavy makeup everyday. Most days I just put this on with some mascara and lip color, and go. Life-changing." —Holly

    Get it from Amazon for $4.49+ (available in 11 formulas and scents).

    Batiste also won best lowest-priced dry shampoo from BuzzFeed Reviews!

    The set comes with a double-ended pen for each eye — one side with the wing stamp, and the other with a traditional liquid eyeliner tip.

    Promising review: "Actual holy grail! This eyeliner has changed my life. I know that sounds suuuper dramatic (and it is), but it’s true! I have been doing cat eyeliner for the past six years and I’m somehow STILL horrible at it. I also recently had a baby, so my daily 10–20 minutes of attempting a passable cat-eye was chucked out the window and replaced with a sad, under-five-minute routine. I ordered this on a whim thinking it might help and after the first application, I knew I had found my answer! This stuff is SO easy to apply and actually looks really good. Now I get to feel a little more like myself even if all I’m doing that day is changing diapers." —Katelyn

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in three sizes).

    26. Olaplex No. 3 rescues folks with majorly dry and damaged hair on the daily. Hairstylists have been using this at-home hair repair treatment FOREVER to turn frizzy messes back into a gorgeous manes.

    Elena Garcia / BuzzFeed / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My hair has been very dry and damaged from too much straightening and curling, and my ends were starting to look terrible. To be honest, I have thin hair, do not get haircuts often, and I blow-dry, straighten, or curl my hair almost every single day — my hair goes through a lot on a daily basis. I heard about this product from a relative who is a hairstylist and she said she uses it often and it is amazing. My hair was silky and soft with less visible damage and that was only after one use. I am very positive it will only get better the more I use it and the longer I keep in on my hair if it worked this well after only one 15-minute treatment." —Gina

    Sephora, Anastasia Beverly Hills

    Promising review: "I had never used anything but pencils before this product. I was initially really scared to use this product because I thought it would be 'too much' or I wouldn't know how to have good control, but I absolutely love it. Ive used it everyday for about three months now and I still have a ton of product left. It's great for a student on a budget, because unlike pencils, it lasts forever and it's great for anyone looking for a perfect brow. With a little bit of practice this results of this product are amazing. 10/10 would repurchase once I run out because I don't think I could go back to any other product." —raquelsd

    This palette is both cruelty-free and vegan!

    Promising review: "WOW. I am blown away by this palette. I didn't have much hope in it at first. It is really cheap and I was unfamiliar with the brand. I am an African American with yellow undertones. Eyeshadow can be rally hard to show up if not pigmented unless we go through hell to prime or find some cheat. NOT THE CASE WITH THIS SHADOW! It is beautifully pigmented and easily layered for more bold color. The palette is full of colors you can wear every day, night, season, and occasion. Some are matte and some are shimmery. Great selection. I recommended this to friends and family. Very pleased!" —M.Harrow

    Get it from Amazon for $17.69+ (available in four colorways).

    29. Benefit The Porefessional Face Primer smooths uneven complexions over so your foundation can go on flawlessly every damn time. See ya later, pores. We're over.

    Promising review: "I have the most gigantic pores on my nose and this is the only pore minimizer I have EVER tried that actually WORKED. I love this product. It's totally worth the money since you only have to use a tiny amount. I love the powdery finish. I swear it absorbs oil, because I wasn't even shiny after several hours when I am usually shiny in an instant. LOVE." —kenzicara

    Get it from Sephora for $13+ (available in three sizes).

    30. PleasingCare Natural Premium Oil Blotting Tissues allow you to simply swipe pesky oils away throughout the day. I remember wiping my face with these as a teenager and comparing my oil-soaked sheets with those of my friends. Tbh, not much has changed!,

    Promising review: "I have been searching for something as effective as this for a long time now. I have extremely oily skin. I live in the Caribbean and whether I wear foundation or not, very early in the day my face is covered in oil, mostly over my T-zone. I tried this and it is excellent. It picks up the oil quickly, leaving my face naturally matte for hours. I am well pleased with the light weight of the sheets. The pack fits perfectly in my purse or jeans pockets. I have no dislikes. I will stock up on it. Anyone with oily skin will find this as a must have." —Melisa

    31. Amika's Polished Perfection Straightening Brush saves you from wasting valuable time struggling with a traditional straightener infomercial-fail style. Now you can straighten with a swipe and keep movin'.


    Promising review: "This tool is a holy grail for me. It's such an extreme time saver. I have fine hair that has tighter curls in the back and is wavy on the sides and front due to my mixed heritage. Previously I would wash my hair every other day, air dry, and flat iron. Living in Honolulu and using a flat iron during the summer my hair would be greasy by next day. I can use this brush, without a mirror and get great results. I feel like this straightening brush gives the look of a round brush blowout. Hair is straightened with a lot of body and lift. I use the brush both on top and under sectioned hair depending on placement. With this design having flat sides you can get pretty close to your roots with the proper technique. I can't recommend this enough. For reference my hair on the front and sides are closer to 3A and my back panel is between 3B/3C." —elle100percent

    Get it from Amazon for $120 or Sephora for $96 (originally $120).

    32. Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream pulls double duty as both a color corrector and sunscreen! The moisturizing formula is also SPF 35, so your complexion isn't just great for today — it's flawless for the long-haul.


    Promising review: "This is worth every penny. It is a cover-all, but not a pore-clogger! First concealer I've ever used on my whole face with out any breakouts. It covers so well, is kind to rosacea, and covers blotches and concerns without being too thick. I am fair skinned, but the light/medium is perfect. If you mix it with a dab of primer or shimmer cream, it's an extra sun-kissed look. This does not cake up or get stuck in creases of your face — it really is the best foundation I've ever used. And I repeat, does not break out your skin! Repeat buyer for sure." —Amy M.

    Get it from Amazon for $34 (available in five shades).
