When it comes to makeup, some of us (and by some, I mean most of us) want to look our best while spending the least. It can be hard to navigate the drugstore makeup world, when there are usually no testers, messy displays and a lack of store employees to recommend products. So where do you start? The list below contains products that I think are some of the absolute best drug store makeup products that will make you look beautiful while lacking the inevitable cringe you get when looking at your total after spending an hour in Sephora.
Let me know if you guys also enjoy these products or what your favorite drugstore makeup products are!
With a price tag under $9, this cushion foundation rivals any high end option you have. It’s lightweight, easy to apply (with a sponge or brush, depending on preference) and wears beautifully all day. I love the natural look of the foundation and how fresh it makes my skin look. (Also fun fact, I wore this on my graduation day, so…let that speak to it’s greatness)
- Wet n Wild MegaCushion Foundation SPF 15
These are probably one of my favorite lip products out there. They glide on effortlessly and give you a natural stain while still pulling together your entire makeup look. I love wearing this to work, at night, and for my more natural makeup days. With 10 different shades, there’s one for every occasion.
- Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint
Hands down best liquid eyeliner. Period. Give this a try for yourself and you will never find yourself spending $20+ on an eyeliner from Sephora, or having smudged eyeliner 30 minutes after applying it.
- Makeup Revolution Renaissance Flick Eyeliner Pen
Okay so blush is actually my least favorite makeup product. As someone who is always naturally flushed, I cringe at the thought of applying a bright blush that’s going to make me look like a clown. This blush is one of the most natural, easiest to apply blushes that I’ve ever tried. I love the soft satin finish that isn’t too shimmery, but just enough to give a subtle glow to the cheeks, some may say, even better than a natural flush.
- Milani Rose Powder Blush
As one of the most raved about drugstore bronzers, it’s no wonder this bronzer is amazing. Easy to apply, natural look, soft sheen, great color pay off, affordable price tag, I could go on forever. I consider myself a bronzer junkie (a sad fact when you’re pale 95% of the year) and this one stands out against my most luxury bronzers. I find myself reaching for this on an every day basis, and I even bought a backup. If you’re new to bronzer or can’t go a day without it, this product is great for everyone with its essentially fool proof formula. OH and it also smells amazing, so that’s fun too.
