By Laura Harper

Have you ever noticed that stores and online sites are filled with cheap beauty products that sound so perfect that you simply can’t resist? Me too — which is why my bathroom cupboards, drawers, and even my closet are filled to the brim with said products. If only I got a sh*t ton of use out of everything I’ve purchased. Lately, I have been — because I’ve been shopping Amazon. I find myself reaching for the lotions, creams, and tools I’ve picked up there almost on the daily.

When I shop on Amazon for my beauty boosters, I love that I can look at ratings and read reviews before I decide to buy. It’s all right there at my fingertips, saving time and trouble before I even grab my credit card. Speaking of which, these products are so cheap (but not unworthy), they barely make a dent in your bank account. For example, there’s a 14-piece set of makeup brushes on Amazon right now for just $10 dollars. You’ll get a sh*t ton of use out of them without having to scrimp and save. Use them on this inexpensive eyeshadow pallet that has colors for both day and night. All-in-all, you’ve got your look covered for less than $25.

Read on as I share my top beauty products on Amazon that you’ll get a sh*t ton of use out of.
