I really tried to narrow this down to TOP 5, but I couldn’t! These 6 are my all-time favorite AFFORDABLE makeup products. There is really no need to spend a ton of money on makeup when there are such great options at the drugstore.
Here they are!
This L’Oréal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation is one of my top foundations of all time. It provides a solid medium coverage (but is buildable) and gives such a NATURAL look. The finish is dewy and skin like. I also really like the packaging, you don’t have to worry about the plastic squeeze tube breaking or anything in your makeup bag. I wear the shade 201 Classic Ivory.
Next up is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. This concealer has been around forever, and it never fails me. I wear the shade Fair. This concealer is a liquid with a doe foot applicator. It comes in a ton of shades and covers my dark circles without being drying. It hydrates my under eyes and doesn’t crease. Love it!
A fairly new product that made the list is the Covergirl Clean Fresh Pressed Powder. I have the shade Fair. First off, the pink packaging is so cute, it reminds me of Too Faced. The powder inside is so soft and smooth, and my pores disappear when I apply this. It keeps my face shine free and actually could be used as a powder foundation because of the coverage it gives. I would take this over any of my high end powders!
A product I have talked about nonstop is the L’Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara. This is my favorite drugstore mascara of all time. It is very comparable to the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (even the packaging is similar). I actually prefer this over that mascara though.
It lengthens the lashes like you wouldn’t believe! It is super black and holds the curl all day. The only con is that it dries out pretty quickly, within about 2 months. I think it is still worth it, though!
For years I was obsessed with the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils, until I discovered these Maybelline Tattoo Studio Gel Pencil Liners. This is in the dark brown color, Bold Brown. This blows my UD Demolition liner out of the water in lasting power and in color. It’s also about half the price!
Lastly, the NYX Butter Glosses. These glosses are a cult fave, and everyone loves them! They are smooth and non-sticky, and come in a TON of colors. This color is Vanilla Cream Pie, a gorgeous sheer bright pink. I LOVE the shade. They also smell like vanilla.
Here’s a swatch.
So, that’s it for my drugstore favorites! It was hard to pick only 6, but these products never fail me, and I love how they are available everywhere.
