Makeup will forever be a luxury, so you want to make sure you're not wasting any of your precious products. Unfortunately, thanks to some questionably designed containers that often hold foundations, lotions, and primers, it can be nearly impossible to get out every last drop. But we recently came across a tool that will prevent you from wasting any more makeup.
The Every Drop Beauty Spatula actually does get out every single drop. The nine-inch tool, which is similar to a lip gloss wand, is made with a thin plastic rod and a small rubber spatula at the end. All you have to do is insert the spatula into a vessel, scrape around the bottom and the edges, and scoop out the makeup. As a bonus, the tip also doubles as an applicator, so you can brush the product directly from the spatula to your face. The tool is washable and reusable, and though it's unclear how many times the spatula can be used, one reviewer says she's had hers for months. To clean the spatula, simply wash it with warm water, soap, and a washcloth. According to the product description, the spatula can be used in any size or shape bottle and is small enough to be stored in most cosmetic bags—even travel-sized bags. Amazon is currently selling one for $7, or two for $11.

Not only is the spatula inexpensive, but it also is quite popular with a nearly four out of five-star rating from more than 700 reviewers. One person calls it "so convenient and useful. This is the perfect problem solver for those empty bottles left with product caked on the inner walls." Another buyer notes the spatula saves them so much money because they're no longer wasting makeup. "My only complaint is that I didn’t buy this sooner," they write. "I cringe thinking about all of the expensive cosmetic containers I threw away that still had some product in them that I couldn’t reach."
Thanks to its small size and low price point, the spatula would be a useful stocking stuffer for your favorite makeup lover, or as a little gift for yourself.
