If I haven't mentioned before (which I think I have) but just in case I haven't, I am a lover of drugstore makeup. And by drugstore I mean, not just affordable makeup but makeup I can easily purchase from my local Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, Target, etc. I have found some amazing products that I absolutely LOVE and have or plan to repurchase when necessary. Now don't get me wrong, I definitely like all of my drugstore products but the products on this list are the ones that have become my faves and I suggest you try.
If you're interested in purchasing and trying any of these products, you can click on the picture of the product.
Maybelline Fit me Matte and Poreless Foundation
I have been using this foundation for years. It's definitely my drugstore staple foundation. It provides great coverage and also leaves your face with a matte finish.
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal High Definition Concealer
This concealer is a favorite not only of myself but of tons of people. It really is the best, most affordable concealer out there. I typically use a lighter color of this concealer for concealing/highlighting under my eyes and use a darker color for contouring. It comes in a wide variety of colors and it can typically be found in your local neighborhood beauty supply store.
Milani Tantastic Face and Body Baked Bronzer
I use this as a highlight on the high part of my cheekbones and I must say for an affordable drugstore highlighter, it definitely does the job! I love this highlighter and I've gotten several compliments on it in person.
Wet n Wild Lash-O-matic
I randomly stumbled upon this product one day. I was intrigued and thought I should try it. I'm not good with applying false lashes and I haven't taken the time to practice. So, I thought this would be a good alternative. And I'm happy to say, that I really LOVE this product! It comes with a tube of mascara and a tube of fibers that look like cotton. You apply the mascara, then the fibers, then the mascara once again. The result is longer, more voluminous lashes and you can definitely tell the difference! You can even build up how dramatic the lashes turn out by adding more mascara and fibers. Now, if you like ultra dramatic false lashes, you probably won't substitute this product for those lashes, but if you like a more natural false lash, this product will give you the appearance of a natural set of false lashes.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Covet
For the record, I'm a fan of just about all of the Milani lipsticks. This brand of lipsticks have been a staple in my lipstick collection for years now. Last year, I tried one of the liquid lipsticks and fell even more in love with this brand. I tried it in the color, Covet, which is a nice brown color and perfect for fall. It goes on liquid but dries matte and it lasts for hours. There are a ton of colors to choose from in this liquid matte formulation.
Black Radiance Perfect Tone Dual Lip Definer
This lip definer can be used as either a lip liner or a lip crayon. There are two ends to the lip definer. On one end is a thinner lip liner and on the other end is a thicker lip crayon. It has a very smooth, creamy finish. I have this lip definer in the color Chocolate and it pairs really well under the Milani liquid lipstick in the color Covet that I mentioned above. It also looks great when used alone. I even use the liner side to line my lips when I'm going to wear a lighter colored lipstick. The only downfall to this product is that there aren't many colors to choose from.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
I have never purchased a Beauty Blender but I'm pretty sure this one is a pretty good dupe for it. It blends well and doesn't absorb so much of the product that you end up wasting it. I have found that to be the case with other drugstore sponges but not this one. It's also very affordable and you can even get a pack of two sponges for a great price.
