Sephora Collection Detox It Out Cotton Swabs ($3)

Regular Q-tips are totally versatile, but these dark-colored, different-sized ends ones do so many things, you’ll wonder how you ever removed your makeup without them.

Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch ($3)


These super popular, paraben-free eye patches are often out of stock. Pro tip: Buy as many as you can whenever they are available; the magical ingredient of bamboo extract makes every under-eye problem a thing of the past.


3/11

Origins Drink Up 10-Minute Mask to Quench Skin’s Thirst ($4)

Origins has a ton of fast-acting masks and if you aren’t sure which one is right for your skin type, you can try a smaller version for $4. Sure, it’s only one application, but when you compare it (and the results) to a facial, it’s definitely worth it.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Wash ($4)

This mild cleanser smells fresh, washes clean and you only need the tiniest drop to create a lathering foam. 


5/11

Clinique Lip and Eye Pencil Sharpener ($4)


Anyone who uses a sharpener for their makeup pencils knows they are definitely not created equal. This one from Clinique works and doesn’t whittle everything down to nothing. Plus, it fits a ton of different stick sizes.

Another must from the in-house brand, these gets-off-everything, pre-moistened wipes are perfect for travel.

This tiny tube is an easy—and always effective—fix for really chapped, dry lips. 


9/11

Sephora Collection Instant Nail Polish Remover Wipes ($5)

Third time is a charm for the Sephora Collection on this list but seriously, stop everything if you haven’t tried these nail polish removers. They are fast, easy and remove even the darkest polish shades in one swipe.


10/11

Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Sponge Refill ($5)

Even if you don’t have to refill a makeup compact, snag one of these makes-makeup-go-on-better discs. They have the magical ability to seamlessly blend in everything and you can wash them a ton of times (they also dry fast) before you need to replace them again.


11/11

Formula X Transformers Top Coat – Nail Polish Effect in Chaotic ($4)

Even if you aren’t so keen on wild nail trends, this monochrome black-and-white transforming topcoat will add a bit of pizzazz to your normal mani when you layer it.
