Welcome to Amazon Anonymous, a support group for those who have Prime and aren’t afraid to use it. We do so in the name of quality content of course. We want to be able to bing you tried and true suggestions we know you’ll love. Self-less, yes. But we digress, the reason we’ve gathered you here today is to share our most-hoarded, most-affordable, least-questionable beauty products, and tools, along with some serious pro tip hacks — all that can be found on Amazon. We can already hear the delivery truck rolling up!
This tube has been sworn by over and over on internet beauty forums, and we agree! When we aren’t using our YSL Shock Volume Mascara, this drug store buy gives comparably lust-worthy lashes. It separates, and elongates without clumping or flaking. Maybelline also formulated a Quick Dissolve System that allows the product to wash off softly without compromising the health of those little batters. Pro tip: don’t pump the wand in and out of the tube for longer lasting quality mascara!
We’ll be the first to admit we aren’t huge lipstick wearers — we tend to lean more in the direction of a subtle tint. However, when we stumbled upon Revlon’s ColorStay Unending Red we were hooked. Our love for this product will probably last as long as it’s hours on your lips — which is basically forever. Though it can be tough to get off, it’s a long-wear lipstick that truly does what it promises, and won’t crack mid-day. Pro tip: It dries with a matte finish, but has an opposing end with a creamy clear stick to give that luster you may desire.
We learn most our beauty tricks from makeup artist’s on set — and lip liner is no different. It’s not just for your mom’s makeup bag, liner has made a comeback and for good reason! We love Revlon liners because they go on easy, and stay all day without a smudge. Pro tip: Use it to accompany your lipstick, or fill in the outer-edge of your lips and use your finger to pull it into the rest of your lip to create a plumper looking pucker, and a natural tint like effect.
Skin & Body
You’ve surely heard us mention this product before — it’s a staple of our bathroom cabinet. Not only can you use it to detox your pores, but it has benefits in supplement form as well. Basically, you need to be on the Bentonite train. This clay specifically is mixed into a mask formula which then removes dirt from your pores, and brings blood to skins surface to heal scars and fine lines! It’s a miracle worker. We put it everywhere from our face, and décolletage, to hands, feet (for pulling out toxins), and even hair! Simply combine the powder with apple cider vinegar and mix until it becomes fluffy. Pro Tip: do not use a metal bowl, it won’t mix properly!
There’s literally no time that we leave the house without a tube (or three) of these in our various carrying devices. From locking in moisture to our face before bed, to an easy cheekbone highlighter we owe a lot of our lives to this product. Pro tip: dab a tiny bit on the ends of your naked eyelashes, and brush up your eyebrows with it for a wet, glowing appearance.
When you don’t have time to find your nearest Korean beauty emporium, Amazon has the goods. We found these TonyMoly sheet masks two years back, and have been religiously using them since. A variety pack is a great way to dive in and find out which is your favorite! Pro tip: Wear one into a steamy shower or bath, and leave it on for fifteen minutes while you do your business and it works it’s magic. The steam will open your pores to receive all the nutrients of the mask!
Another suggestion we originally came across in the depths of a beauty forum, this rich cream is great for all skin types. It’s nourishing, goes on light, and is unscented so it won’t intercept your chosen scent. CeraVe is dermatologist developed promising to be a pot of prestige! Pro tip: This cream also contains hyaluronic acid so it’s just what you need for soothing irritated skin, and combating signs of age not just on your face but your whole body!
Don’t worry, we will do a separate French Girl beauty buy soon, but in the meantime: get. on. this. Bioderma uses an H2O Micellar Water in many of it’s product to breath moisture into each step of your routine. This specific product removes tough makeup in a non-intrusive way. Just pour a few dashes on to a gentle cloth, and wipe away! Pro tip: you don’t even have to wash it off after, just leave it to soak into your skin for optimum nutrients.
Being Ayurvedic hobbyists, this product was suggested to us by a wise Ayurvedic doctor. “Give yourself a daily, 15 minute oil massage” she said, “We ain’t got time for that” we said. But then we gave it a try, and since we’ve been hooked. This mixture is the best for getting your circulation going, hydrating skin, and is all natural! Banyan Botanicals is brimming with herbs and oils that settle a strained mind and soak into skin to benefit energy levels through aromatherapy. Pro tip: like a daily spa treatment, massage into skin right before your shower using circular upward motions covering the entire body (even ears and hair!), then rinse it off and get on with your day!
We’ve often forked out serious bucks for at home hair treatments, until one day we stumbled upon this L’oreal Total Repair and it’s been saving our tresses, and bank accounts since! It works like a luxury product hydrating dry ends, and leaving you with luxuriously soft locks. Pro tip: Use interchangeably with your regular conditioner, we usually use it twice a week for quick results!
Trust when we say we tried every dry shampoo on the market and this was by far the best! No chalkiness, no residue, no weird grandma scent. Living Proof provides the best light-weight fix on days when you just can’t… Pro tip: We use this for fine hair to give it a little more grit when styling, it helps with a good all-day hold.
Remember when gel nails became a craze and then you realized they were literally wearing down your nails, and suffocating them from the inside out? Same. Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is the best thing we’ve found since, giving a comparable finish without eating away at what’s underneath and it still lasts longer than regular polish! Basically it’s a good looking mani when you don’t have the budget to indulge! Pro tip: Use your favorite regular polish shades underneath and swipe this on top for a longer lasting manicure!
That whole dipping cotton pads into a bottle situation is a little messy for our tastes! When we found this ZOYA (a cleaner ingredient based nail line) flip top remover it was game over. You just place the cotton ball on top and press in to eject just the right amount of product. Pro tip: dab a tiny bit on to a cotton pad and lightly place over just painted nails to dry them faster!
If you aren’t using a derma roller, you aren’t living! And if you aren’t, you should be buying this one. After trying out a few this one is the best budget friendly buy for a quality roller! If you’re not sure what the benefits of rolling tiny needles over your skin is, we have more info for you here. This anti-aging trick is apart of our daily routine — with a .25mm needle like this one you can roll about three times a week! Pro tip: want fuller lips without fillers? use this derma roller over your lips to get an extra, natural plump!
We hadn’t used an eyelash curler since middle school, until we remembered just how beneficial they can be for getting that extra dramatic look. That’s when we hoped on Amazon and found this baby. Yep, you need it. The silicone pressure pads make sure there’s no lash breakage over time. Pro tip: Use even when you aren’t wearing mascara for a super natural, yet eye-catching look.
You’ve heard of the Mason Pearson hair brush yes? The one that every hair stylist, and celebrity swears by? The one that comes out to a casual $230. When we heard of this investment piece we immediately took to the web to find out if there was a comparable offering for (waaaay) less the price — that’s how we found Sonia Kashuk and boy are we converts. It competes with Pearson on design and bristle, and only costs a casual $200 less. Pro tip: for an extra sleek look spray hair with frizz control, and brush through while the product is still wet. Hair will behave all day!
When we featured this face massager on our IG story, you guys went nuts! If you missed it, here’s a tool that will change your beauty game. For only $10, and on Prime (that’s what we’re talking about), this vibrating gold piece will drain toxins from your face, and de-puff tired eyes! It’s like a mini face lift in minutes. Pro tip: apply a face oil to skin, and then use the massager on top to really get the product into skin’s surface!
We love to play around with making natural masks in our kitchen (honey, yogurt anyone?), that’s why this face mask mixing bowl is a must-have. That above Bentonite Clay mask mixes gracefully in such a bowl. The brush makes for easy application. Pro tip: Pack this for when you travel, so your mask game never has to take a backseat.
