Hi everyone –

Remember when Amazon was just an online bookstore? I know – seriously dating myself. They started out in July of 1995 promoting themselves as “Earth’s Biggest Bookstore”……

Fast forward a couple decades – and Amazon dominates the market space in almost every category of online purchasing. It’s a place where new and even established brands can get themselves in front of a client base they may not otherwise have access to.


try a few of these!

Because of Amazon – I’ve now tried a ton of drugstore beauty products & found lots of great little gems that I wouldn’t have otherwise known of. It’s so easy to throw a few in your cart & try ’em out.

So in that spirit – I sourced a handful of Amazon Customer Top Rated, Drugstore Beauty Picks for you to try!

These are, according to thousands of Amazon Customers – the best of the best. We’ve got glosses, bronzers, body scrubs, self-tanners and more.

Enjoy the scroll!



Butter Gloss

This is the brand that Kelsey – my favorite Make Up Artist, uses on me for virtually every shoot (usually Angel Food Cake or Tiramisu). Over 45k Amazon customers fricking RAVE about this gloss and for good reason….

It glides on like budd-ahh, comes in a TON of gorgeous colors, and imparts sheer to medium coverage. Super versatile – wear on its own OR create your own color by layering it over your favorite lip pencil or lip color.

CRUELTY-FREE: All NYX makeup is certified & acknowledged by PETA as a cruelty-free brand. Pop a few into your cart & send ’em to sisters or friends.

I sent my sister: Eclair & Creme Brûlée.

Over 45k Amazon customers RAVE about NYX Butter Gloss – for good reason.

Tons of colors, sheer to medium coverage, silky smooth gorgeousness!

Butter Brozer

Customers love the tropical “coco-nutty” scent ALMOST as much as the subtle shimmer & sun-kissed natural glow of this bronzer with buildable color.

It’s got soft-focus pigments that help to make your skin look smoother, brighter & glowy!  If you’ve got sensitive skin – this was made for YOU with high-quality hypoallergenic and natural ingredients.  

CRUELTY-FREE: All Physicians Formula foundations, eye makeup, lipsticks, and other cosmetics are always cruelty-free and never test on animals

Soft-focus pigments, buildable color and a tropical coconut-ty scent make this an Amazon customer top-rated bronzer.

Lash Princess Mascara

Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara, to be specific. My new, most FAVORITE mascara!! It builds, thickens and lengthens lashes in NO time, for a fraction of the price of luxury brands.

I’d like to say, “For $4.99, this mascara is amazing” – but that’s not true. For ANY price, this mascara is amazing.

I have both Chanel & Lancome (Definicils) in my make-up drawer – and this one blows them away. Hands down.

Call me Lefty

The LEFT eye is Lash Princess. RIGHT eye is Lancome Definicils. The Lash Princess gave me longer, thicker and more dramatic lashes in a fraction of the time that it took me to get anywhere near the same look with Definicils.

While the Definicils eye still looks nice – it took me much longer to build the lashes to what you see – and it still doesn’t compare to the Lash Princess eye.

BONUS: It’s approximately 7x less than Lancome + free shipping for Prime. And Cruelty-Free. So….. yeah.

Sunless Face-Tan Serum

When I ran the sales division for a software company that worked with athletes, I remember being shown product samples for “this really cool new company that makes 70% organic, chemical-free mineral sunscreen. It’s called COOLA.”

Hmmm. I remember squeezing one of the turquoise colored sample tubes into my hand, and just loving the way the product felt & smelled. I’ve been a fan ever since.

I’m a huge fan of their Sunless Tan Serum because it gives your face a gorgeously glowing little bump of sun-kissed color without looking like the old lady from Something About Mary.
