Remember makeup? Those powders and creams and sprays we’d use to enhance our natural features and sometimes confuse strangers? No? If I close my eyes I can almost recall what I looked like with lipstick on. True, I haven’t considered makeup since about February 2020, but I can still remember how fun it used to be. Now that the world has re-opened and people are starting to unleash the lower halves of their face to the public again, it might be time to re-up your stash of makeup products. The excitement I feel about being able to go out of my house with lip gloss is truly upsetting. Of course, by now most of my products have hit the expiration date (This is a real thing! Look it up!) so it’s time to buy a few more staples for my collection. And just like paper towels, vacuum bags, and all those other household essentials, Amazon is the place to go for makeup must-haves. If you don’t think Amazon is the go-to place for beauty, think again. Amazon has the best collection of not just makeup, but of skincare, nail care, haircare, body products, and even specialized care like wrinkle creams or the cure to strawberry legs. Plus, with Amazon Prime Day around the corner on July 12th and 13th, these products are getting even more affordable. Below, find the best of the best, from highly-rated mascaras, to tried-and-true eyebrow pencils.

About this item
- [ROMANCE YOUR LIPS – SOFT AND LIGHTWEIGHT COLORS] Our Ink the Airy Velvet Lip Tint is a must-have item. It’s reminiscent of soft pillows and blooming flowers. Its adhesive formula with highly pigmented colors leaves a beautiful and even stain on your lips.
- [TWO DIFFERENT LOOKS, ONE TINT] Soften the look of your lips by applying a gradient layer of color or go bold by applying a thicker layer across your lips.
- [MOISTURIZING FORMULA] The formula that blends in the perfect balance of vitamin E, cotton seed oil, green tea oil and mango oil is what locks in the moisture. A single layer of color will get you through the day without drying out.
- [SILKY SMOOTH FINISH] Silk powders and silicone oils in the tint give you that smooth glide. Our tint consists of elastomer that fills in the fine curves of your lips so you can get that emollient finish.
- [PRECISION APPLICATOR TIP] Our applicator is designed to taper off at the end, which makes it easy to shape and line your lips for a clean and perfectly applied lip. All it takes is one swipe. Our tip also makes it easier to get the gradient-lip-look.
