Affordable, high-quality beauty products do exist, but the reality is: those are the exceptions, not the rule. So the next time you’re looking to indulge in a little beauty-focused retail therapy, use this article as your guide. It features 43 of the best and cheapest beauty products that work just as well as their much-pricier cousins — and since each one is so affordable, you can buy a treat for your hair, skin, and nails and still have money leftover in your budget for a facial.

In the case of skin care, the key to making sure you’re choosing products that aren’t total duds is to consider your skin type and goals, so before buying anything new, think about what it is exactly that you’re hoping to achieve. Try to familiarize yourself with ingredients that your skin loves (or, just as important, doesn’t love), and then examine the formula as a whole. The same goes for hair products, in that you’ll want to choose products that were designed for your hair type, not just because they worked for somebody else. With makeup, there’s a lot more freedom to play around — so if you’re shopping for a new lipstick or eyeshadow palette, don’t feel pressured to do as much research.

Whatever it is you’re looking for — or maybe you’re not looking for anything at all, but just feel the urge to shop — you can’t go wrong with any of the beauty products featured ahead. They all come highly recommended by The Zoe Report editors and consumers alike, and every single one rings up at less than $20 on Amazon.
