Makeup can be so much fun, no matter your age, but it can also be quite expensive. Fear not, darlings, a quick jaunt to your local drugstore can be an affordably chic way to update your vanity. This week, I have picked out some of the best beauty products you will likely find at your local drugstore. These are great products that don't break the bank.
CoverGirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Nudes; $12.99 online here.
The CoverGirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Nudes is the perfect eye shadow palette for when you want a soft and natural daytime look, but also want something more dramatic for night time. The palette contains 8 silky shades that are great for all occasions and stay on all day. Its the perfect palette for everyday wear.
Loreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation; $16.99 online here.
L’Oreal Paris’ True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation is perfect for quick, on-the-go touch ups. The foundation is stored in a micro-aerated cushion that gives you the right amount of product every time. Plus the container is great for throwing in your bag - you don’t have to worry about the product leaking out of the tube or the bottle breaking. The foundation itself provides great coverage without being heavy or cakey.
No. 7 Dramatic Lift Mascara; $9.99 online here.
Inspired by hair care products, the No. 7 Dramatic Lift Mascara contains keratin and flexible polymers to keep lashes soft and accentuate them from root to tip. The curved brush is also great for lifting and separating lashes.
NYX Full Throttle Lipstick; $6.99 online here.
I hate when I constantly have to reapply my lipstick, or when it leaves my lips feeling dry. I used to end up spending a ton on high end lip colors, But then I found the NYX Full Throttle Lipstick. This product does a great job at staying on throughout the day without fading and leaves my lips feeling moisturized and refreshed.
Maybelline Facestudio Master Contour; $9.99 online here.
Contouring is as easy as 3 steps with the Maybelline Facestudio Master Contour kit. Define and highlight with the contour shade (that doubles as a bronzer). Then apply rosy blush and the illuminator to complement your skin tone.
Revlon ColorStay Liquid Pens; $9.99 online here.
I love the felt tip on the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Pens. They allow me to create the perfect winged eye every time. Plus the formula won’t fade or smear throughout the day, so I don’t have to worry about reapplying. They come in 3 styles (Triple Edge, Ball Point, and Classic Point) so you can go from subtle to dramatic.
