    1. A nude eyeshadow palette for giving yourself a simple, but sophisticated-looking makeover.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Usually, I'm skeptical when it comes to purchasing drugstore makeup products, but I've had a change of heart after buying this palette. I'm in love with it. Not only is it affordable, but it's also a quality product. The colors have great pigment for a drugstore eyeshadow palette. You can use them to create a day-to-night smokey eye or whatever eye look you want. I love how it gives you step-by-step instructions on how to create different looks on the back. You can pretty much create an eye look like a pro." —Sharde Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $8.39.

    2. A multi-pocket crossbody bag to make carrying around all of your important belongings super cute, easy, and organized.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This little bag has made a huge difference for me. Now I can carry those things I absolutely must keep on my person, without being weighed down with a bulky or heavy handbag. There are just enough pockets and compartments for all of my necessary items, and it fits nicely across the body, keeping everything safe from from those that would try to snatch it away if they could." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98 (available in 25 colors).

    3. A two-pack of charcoal shoe deodorizers that'll get your stinky footwear smelling fresh in a pinch.

    Amazon, Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    These can be reused for up to two years! Read our write-up of these miracle shoe deodorizers.

    Promising review: "My boyfriend has those toe shoes that you don't wear socks with, and after a couple years of use and several attempts to sanitize them with spray or wash them, we banished them into bags in the corner of a storage unit. They're expensive shoes, so we were very hesitant to throw them out. I saw these online and thought maybe we could rescue the shoes. Let me tell you about these shoes. If you touch them, your hand is instantly tainted with a smell that could get you exiled from society. We held our breath, opened the bags containing the shoes, stuck these in there, and ran out of the room. A couple of days later we got them out, and they didn't smell! We spent $10 and resurrected $100+ shoes." —Cindy

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95.

    4. A 16-pack of collagen essence sheet masks for giving even the most sensitive skin the at-home spa treatment it deserves.

    Amazon, Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    I love these so much, I wrote about them! Read my review of these amazing sheet masks.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these face sheets. They're an incredible steal. You can't beat this price and the pack will last you a long time. I love all of the masks for different reasons. It's great that it comes in a variety pack so you can revitalize your skin in different ways depending on the ingredients. Normally, I'd wash my face after a face mask, but with these sheets you should simply dab off the excess. That way, your skin will soak up the collagen and whatever added vitamins/ingredients are in that particular mask. They leave your skin looking radiant throughout the day!" —LW

    Get them from Amazon for $10.49.

    5. A dress sure to become an instant favorite in your wardrobe — you can wear it casually, dress it up for a night out with friends, to the office — it knows no limits.

    Boohoo

    Get it from Boohoo for $10 (sizes 2–12), or $12 (sizes 12–20).

    6. A food storage container that'll help preserve the life of your produce and leftovers — because I'm gonna go out on a whim here and assume you didn't spend all that money on groceries just to throw them away in the garbage soon after.

    Amazon, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    The medium container (pictured above) holds about 6.3 cups of food. These containers feature FreshVent technology to regulate oxygen and carbon dioxide flow, as well as a CrispTray to help keep moisture away. These are dishwasher-safe! Read our write-up of these wonderful food storage containers.

    Promising review: "I wish I'd have gotten these sooner. I'm a vegetarian, so I eat a lot of produce anyway, and recently my husband has started eating healthier, so we eat even more. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator in these containers almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. These keep blackberries for a really long time. Lettuce (even washed and cut up) has lasted close to three weeks. The real miracle is how long they keep zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days, but these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, sliced bell peppers, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (originally $12.99).

    7. A super cool pair of sunnies for channeling your inner rockstar — we won't tell anyone they're not designer-brand glasses if you don't.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these sunglasses. I’ve received multiple compliments from people I’m close to and also people I don’t know, which shows how great they are. Why would I spend $100 on a name brand pair of sunglasses when you can get an inexpensive pair on Amazon that look just as amazing? I love the gold lenses on the pair I got and I’d honestly consider getting another pair as well because of how much I love them." —Tyler A.

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

    8. A cosmetic bag that doubles as a makeup mat so you can easily store your beauty products and then have ample space to lay them all out when it's time to use them.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite Amazon purchases ever! While it's supposed to be a travel bag, I use it to store my makeup at home instead of leaving it all out on the counter. It holds so much more than you'd think, and the material that can be wiped clean with ease. I've seen a similar makeup bag for more than twice the price." —T. Alvarado

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    9. A mascara that'll fool people into thinking your personal stylist comes to your house each morning to get your lashes on point.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "For the price, I am very pleased. The curved brush makes application easy. You can apply multiple coats to add more drama to your look. I've experienced no clumping with this and usually do a couple coats, which really makes my eyelashes look long and glorious! It stays on all day, though I may re-touch if I have an event later in the day just as a precautionary measure. Given the price, I am very pleased with the quality of this mascara! I would definitely recommend." —CH

    Get it from Amazon for $6.85 (available in five colors).

    10. A cookie sheet set featuring three cookie sheets of various sized and four emoji cookie cutters, because we're all about giving you as much as we can for as little coin possible.

    Walmart

    These carbon steel pans are made of non-stick coating and are BPA- and PFOA-free, and ensure easy baking and browning. Plus, everything in this set is dishwasher-safe!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty line, exclusively at Walmart for $9.97 (originally $13.99).

    11. A sideways large initial necklace to pair with just about any outfit so you can add a pop of fun personalization to your look.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This necklace is more pretty in person. I love the large size of the letter pendant, chain length, and how it's attached to the chain to give it a offset angle once you put it on. It looks really trendy and personalized once you match it with a cute outfit." —Erin Delancy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39.

    12. A two-pack of Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser to get your cookware, surfaces, appliances, and more shining brighter than the top of the Chrysler building.

    amazon.com

    For those who are fans of the Bar Keepers Friend Classic Cleanser and Polish, this delivers the same results, but in a pre-mixed formula to make for a quicker clean. It works well against rust stains, tarnish, mineral deposits, soap scum, and indoor and outdoor grime, and is especially good on the following surfaces: stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, corian. Recommended to use in the kitchen (sinks, cookware, stove cooktops and exteriors, oven door windows, non-stone countertops, and plates to buff out knife marks), bathroom (sinks, bathtubs, showers, faucets, toilets, tile, and grout), and outdoors (rust stains, grills, vehicles, siding, and sporting equipment). Read our write-up of this miracle cleaner.

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off. But if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again. It also worked on a few mineral stains in my bathtub that I thought were permanent after soft scrub failed to remove them. Again, a little of this stuff, the scrubby side of a blue sponge, a little bit of effort and they were gone!" —Dan Borden

    Get them from Amazon for $9.07.

    13. A peacock picture frame that'll not only do a wonderful job displaying a beautiful photo, but will serve as a stunning decor item in your living space.

    Target

    Get it from Target for $14.99.

    14. A makeup blending sponge comparable to the beloved Beautyblender — we promise this gets the job done just as well and at a fraction of the price.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    And be sure to check out our story on more amazing product dupes.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these the same day I ordered an original Beautyblender, just to forever put to rest whether or not spending $20 on a sponge is ever worth it — and now I can definitively say that it isn't. I'll never be wasting my money on the profoundly overpriced original again. I actually prefer this sponge to the Beautyblender; it's firmer when dry, but softens to a cloud when dampened. The texture is finer and seems less likely to tear, degrade, or leave little particles of itself on my face or in my makeup. I'm very pleased with this purchase. This will definitely be my new go-to brand." —JLWNYC

    Get it from Amazon for $4.95.

    15. A 10-piece ring set to bling out your fingers in a v pretty way — you can stack them or wear one on each finger.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    16. A pair of biker shorts featuring a zig-zag trim on the sides that'll become your fave thing to wear in the warm weather. They're trendy, comfy, and oh ya, less than $15.

    Forever 21

    Get them from Forever 21 for $12.90 (sizes XS–L), or $14.90 (sizes 0XL–3XL).

    17. A throw pillow cover that IMHO, looks like it stepped right out of an HGTV makeover. If pillow covers could step out of TV screens that is.

    West Elm

    Get it from West Elm for $14.99 (originally $39).

    18. A one-piece ruffled swimsuit — you're about to look like you just came from the runway of a swimsuit fashion show.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "As a plus-size woman, it's scary to buy a bathing suit online! I wanted to escape my mom-suits as I have a bachelorette party in Key West so I went for this suit. I absolutely feel sexy in it, my husband loved it, and it fits very well. I am extremely pleased and wish it came in more patterns! It is very flattering — even for someone who is a bit bigger on the bottom and has a tummy!" —J TACK

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in six styles, and sizes S–2XL).

    19. A scalloped peplum top to give off the vibe you shop at high-end boutiques instead of standing in your pajamas by the door all day waiting for your Amazon package.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Guys, I'm in love with this shirt. I'm 5’6", 155 lbs, and I purchased a medium. It gives me the perfect amount of support in the chest when I tighten up the straps. The criss cross back also helps with support. It's such a lovely top and I got compliments all night. I felt sexy and classy at the same time. It's a quality product that keeps me stylish without much effort." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 16 colors, and sizes XS–XL).

    20. A liquid foundation available in a wide variety of shades that's oil-free and boasts giving your skin a natural, matte finish.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This is magic in a bottle. It's the first foundation I've tried that's matched my skin so closely. It gives medium-to-light coverage, which I love for summertime. I have acne scars that make me feel self-conscious, but this product covers them. In the photos above, I only used foundation, no concealer, around my cheeks and forehead. The best part is that it's matte! I have very oily skin, so this product is my holy grail. It goes on and blends flawlessly." —Simpleebekah

    Get it from Amazon for $5.94 (available in 40 shades).

    21. A pair of earrings you'll never want to take off, and I don't blame you. They're so trendy.

    Free People

    Get them from Free People for $14.95 (originally $30, available in two colors).

    22. A dog floor mat for the best welcome home greeting ever — so even if you don't have a dog, you'll still feel the puppy love when you walk through the door.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 18 styles, and two sizes).

    23. A pair of headphones available in a variety of cool colors that — despite their low price tag — are anything but low quality. Don't believe me? Then take it from the 47.3K+ positive reviews.

    Amazon

    Check out our write-up of these awesome headphones.

    Promising review: "I've been using these to listen to music at work for four years. They get tossed into my bag every weekday, yet there are no tears, no loose wires, and the earpads are intact. They still sound crisp and clear. The fit is perfect for my ears. I've worn these for hours at a time without any aching or tension. They're incredibly reliable and good quality." —Lady S.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.36 (available in 15 colors).

    24. A bath bomb with a crystal surprise inside, because we like our bath bombs like we like our jewelry boxes — with shiny gems in the middle.

    Etsy
