UNDER $20: 17 Amazon Beauty Must-Haves

There are make up and beauty gurus out there who’s make up collections cost probably as much as a car. When we think about how a really good foundation is typically over $40, it’s easy to rack up a big bill. It doesn’t all have to be that way though. 

Amazon is literally my favourite place to try, play, and find my next beauty must-have. You can find such a range of beauty products – from luxury to the cheapest on the market, so you find something that works not just for your body and face, but also for your wallet haha

Another thing about Amazon beauty products is that it’s typically where you’ll find the most recent viral beauty trends or the best deals on your favourite brands. I love looking at all the cool beauty trends, finding them on Amazon, and trying them myself. 

That being said, I figured I would round up some of my fav beauty finds on Amazon, as well as some cool beauty products I really want to try… 



These are my go-tos – the products that I buy basically on clockwork. I’ve tried them, they work, and they’re the ones I will never give up. And you can sometimes find them in retail stores, but the best prices I’ve found for them is on Amazon emoji



Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish ($10)

One of the fastest drying, longest lasting nail polishes in my collection (I have about 50 nail polishes, so trust me, I’ve tried a bunch). Without going to the salon, this little guy keeps my mani looking fresh for at least 10 days.









Ruimio Eyebrow Razor With Stencil Kit ($9)

Baby hairs, lazy to do your brows properly, or a little peach fuzz you’re looking to get rid of in a jiffy? These are your special secret go-tos. I first tried them when I discovered them in Asia. They’re life savers to keep in purse when you notice a stray hair somewhere it’s not supposed to be.







Lasgoos 5pair False Eyelashes ($9)

Because wearing lashes all the time can get expensive. And when I was working in the nightlife industry (back in the day), I wore a set every night. Sometimes I wouldn’t be a good beauty kid, and would just throw them away instead of cleaning them. These are cheap enough to use and dispose. 









A-Store Silking 15 Piece Makeup Brush Set ($11)

I love my fancy designer brushes, but honestly, I can’t afford to be buying five $50 lip brushes just to put my lipstick on. I’m just not that girl. These brushes may not be the best quality, but they get the shop done… and on one heck of a bargain.  







My fellow blogger and Youtuber friends are always serving up massive inspiration when it comes to trying new products. Either I’ve seen these things on their videos, or I’ve spotted them on their vanity table. Either way, they’ve been ordered and set in my personal rotation! 



Clairol Shimmer Lights Original Shampoo ($16)

My girl Vic, @thelustlistt, swears by these purple shampoo. I’ve used a bunch but she’s definitely kept her hair more grey/blonde than I ever could. And apparently it’s all thanks to this guy. I just placed an order and I’m ready to get my icy blonde locks shimmering.








Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask ($16)

I’ve seen so many tutorials on Youtube and Instagram around this mask. To be honest, I’m not sure what to think of it. It kind of looks like it should be a kid’s toy. There are crazy amazing reviews on it though so I figured I would give it a try. I’m a big fan of clay masks, so wish us luck!







Real Techniques Brush Cleaner ($15)

Cleaning my brushes is literally the last thing I want to do. I’m a lazy, quick-let’s-get-to-it type of girl. But I know it’s important and can actually lead to some nasty breakouts if you don’t do it – so this nifty tool I’ve seen a couple people try could be a real lifesaver for me. 








Washable Silicone Makeup Sponge ($4)

I’ve heard this is the new best make up sponge/beauty blender. It looks pretty cool… but I don’t know if my make up will just slide right off. Either way, for a few bucks, it’s worth a try to see if it works for you and your fav products!









Susenstone Silver Nail Powder ($3.50)

I haven’t tried this yet but I’m SO excited to get it. How cool is this?! I’ve always wondered how people get their nails to be chrome like this. If I can master it, well then these couple bucks will continue to flow… because I think I just need to have these metallic nails with me forever.








These guys are just on my wishlist. I use most of these things by other brands already but figured I would try some others out. You just never know when you’ll fine “the one” till you just do. 



I’d love to hear about your favourite Amazon beauty deals! We all have them and I always scour far and wide within Amazon to find the next beauty must have I’m going to fall in love with. And hey, for less than $20, what’s there to lose right? I’m all about a good product that’s not going to break the bank!
