A good makeup brush goes a long way. This one is top-rated and beloved for its soft and firm bristles made for liquid or powder makeup. "I hardly write reviews but I could not help but come here and let everyone know!” one review boasted. “I want to also thank the company who creates this brand. It is a great feeling to KNOW that after using your brush I don’t have tiny random ‘hairs’ in my foundation. I don’t even have to look closely anymore like I do with my other brushes.

Scoring an impressive 4.8-star rating, this stainless steel set includes 12 measuring cups and spoons. They’re kitchen essentials, to say the least.

Available in four different sizes, this stainless steel dish drying rack conveniently sits over the sink, taking up zero counter space.

A five-star reviewer wrote, "We used to stack our dishes on a towel, which always ended up sliding around on the counter and took up counter space, or putting them in the second sink to dry, where they didn’t dry because there was no air circulation. This rolls out over the second sink to allow dishes to drip into the sink, doesn’t move because it is slip-proof, and doesn’t take up counter space because we put it across the sink. On top of that, it folds away for easy travel. One of the best investments we’ve made."

The most unique thing about this pepper grinder is that you can adjust the grind size from fine to coarse. It also comes pre-filled, which is a major bonus. One reviewer wrote, "This is easily the best pepper mill that I’ve ever owned, and I’ve owned a couple that cost [three to four] times the price of this one.
