If there's one thing everyone can agree on, it's that there's no reason to spend more money than necessary on things—especially when no one will know! There are a few items that fall into this category, from certain home goods and food products to cleaning supplies and clothes. One big category is makeup: If a product is affordable and performs just as well as name-brand stuff, who's going to figure out the difference? To know what works and what doesn't, we scoured the internet. Here, see TikTok user and makeup expert Jenn Clayton's (@JennClaytonBeauty) picks for the 10 Dollar Tree beauty products that hold up to the best.

Ioni Los Angeles Wispy Lashes


In one TikTok video, Clayton shows viewers an entire display of Ioni faux eyelashes, including these Los Angeles lashes. "These are so much fun—they're half lashes," she says. "They have such great quality lashes for $1.25, and these would be $12 to $15 at Ulta or Sephora."

Other types of Ioni lashes, named after spots in California, were available, depending on your preferences. Clayton also picked up the WeHo lashes. "Aren't these stunning? How beautiful are these spiky, dark, delicious lashes?" she gushes.

On Reddit, one reviewer gave Ioni's lashes high marks: "These lashes are pretty long/dramatic but still go on nicely! They do not feel heavy at all. The inner corners are not lifting so far. The lashes seem like they will be easy to clean and reuse."

The brand is cruelty-free and vegan and has been at Dollar Tree for years.

Ioni Lash Glue


Another budget-friendly pick that Clayton found was Ioni's lash glue. "It comes in both clear and dark—I prefer the dark," she explains.

On Amazon, where the same glue sells for $10, one reviewer wrote: "Love love love this glue," and mentioned it's the only one that will keep her lashes on even after crying.

It has hyaluronic acid in the formula to hydrate while it blurs.

The B-Pure brand also offers a pressed powder product. "They didn't have a lot of shades, but they did have a few," Clayton says.

The product contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and vitamin C to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation over time. You could use it as a foundation, a setting powder, or keep it in your purse to address shine throughout the day.
