Amazon has become my one-stop for online shopping this year more than ever, and it has become an unexpected source of some of my favorite beauty finds recently. In fact, many of my most used beauty products are from Amazon!
These affordable Amazon beauty must haves are staples in my routine, from skin care to hair tools. Keep scrolling for more details on why I love these finds!
Practk is the affordable sister brand to Sigma Beauty, and uses the same ultra soft synthetic fibers as Sigma brushes. They are super high quality with water-resistant resin handles and apply and blend making easily. It’s a small brush line, but they really cover all the basics of a typical makeup routine and have helpful brush shapes for any look. They also have their Power Blender sponge, which works really well for liquid and creams, and the Palmat which is a brush cleaning tool. I have more of an in-depth review of this line in my review in this post.
2. UNT Ready for Takeoff Peel Off Base Coat ($14.96)
Whether you’re doing your own gel or dip manicures at home, or like to switch up your normal polish shade a lot, this peel-off base coat will make your routine so much easier. Instead of soaking your nails or scrubbing them with acetone, you’ll be able to peel off your polish without damaging the nail. You can also use this as a cuticle protector to keep your polish within the lines, and peel it off for clean edges.
3. Tweezerman iLashComb ($11)
One of my best kept makeup secrets, this small comb helps separate clumped up lashes and remove excess mascara. If you’ve gone one coat too far, or your mascara formula is acting clumpier than normal, this can save your whole look by separating and fanning out lashes. Just be careful— the metal comb is sharp, and you do NOT want to poke your eye with this! This has been a life saver when my mascara isn’t performing well but I want to salvage my makeup.
These are the perfumes I’ve been reaching for the most since summer, even more so than my designer fragrances. They are vegan, Leaping Bunny cruelty-free, made with pure essential oils that are phthalate-free and non-toxic. The scents are beautiful and long lasting without being overpowering, and smell like real scents— not artificial. My favorites are Soar, which is a blend of citrus and musk, and Manifest, a warm and slightly spicy vanilla. They also make the ONLY rose fragrance I enjoy called Known, which smells like a real rose garden. Read my review of some of their other scents in this post.
5. Hanhoo Dermafix Blemish Toner ($12)
After tweaking my skin care routine to accommodate new serums I’m using, I had to swap out my toner for something that wouldn’t clash. This K-Beauty toner fit the bill, and has been working really well for my acne-prone combination skin. It’s made with witch hazel and calamine lotion which help calm redness, clarify, and rehydrate the skin. It feels gentle yet effective and my skin feels super balanced after using it nightly for about a month.
6. Arishine Magnetic Eyeliner & Eyelashes Kit ($20.35)
After trying countless magnetic eyelashes since the trend started, these have been my favorite by far. The kit gives you a ton of bang for your buck, with 5 sets of magnetic lashes, two tubes of magnetic liquid eyeliner, and a lash applicator. The liner is my favorite part, since it’s easy to swipe on and is waterproof but not super hard to remove like others I’ve tried. The lashes are synthetic, full and fluffy, and I love the variety they include in the set from natural to bold and glamorous. I have a full review of this specific set in this video.
7. Revlon One Step Dryer & Volumizer ($41.99)
This is the only blow dryer I use regularly— I literally stopped using the traditional kind after trying it. When I use a hair dryer, I’m typically trying to achieve a sleek and smooth look which I then have to also use a flat iron to achieve. However, this tool is a 2-in-1 both drying and styling my hair in less time and with less heat. It’s a brush and dryer combo that is perfect for my thick hair, as it dries thoroughly and straightens it while adding volume at the root and shape to the ends. To go from wet to styled in 20 minutes is a feat with my hair, which makes this a holy grail tool for me! I show how to use it in this video.
