Best Makeup from the Drugstore

Who doesn’t love to save some money every now and then? I try my best to only spend money on makeup that is good quality, whether the price tag is high or low. Believe it or not, there are some items in my every day routine that you can find for a very low cost. Continue reading to learn about my favorites…


Essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder

This powder is the ultimate dupe for KKW Beauty’s brighten under-eye powder. I use this powder under my eyes as one of the last steps in my routine. It brightens the under eye area just enough to make a difference, but not enough to leave white rungs under your eyes. This is my favorite banana powder on the market and it is only $4.99 at Ulta.

L’ORÉAL Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

This is by far my favorite drugstore mascara. When it comes to mascara I am very particular about the brush head. The brush head with this mascara is so thick and applies so much mascara in just one swipe. This mascara does not clump and does not fall out throughout the day. I use this mascara all the time.

MAYBELLINE Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

This is a great concealer. Some people argue that they do not like the sponge on the top because of sanitation reasons, but this does not bother me considering I do not share my makeup and it is always going on my cleaned under eye area. The formula of this concealer is great and it really does a great job of covering dark circles and bags. This was one of the first concealers I ever used and I still use it to this day.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION Conceal & Define Full Coverage Conceal & Contour

This new concealer is life changing. I have been using it nonstop since I purchased it at Ulta last month. This is a great dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer which I also own. Personally, I prefer the Makeup Revolution concealer over the Shape Tape. This concealer is more heavy duty than the MAYBELLINE Instant Age Rewind.

MAYBELLINE FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter

This is one of my ride or die highlighters, drug store or not. It is extremely pigmented and gives your face a beautiful glow. This highlighter’s formula is amazing quality, even better than some high end highlighters. My favorite shade is the gold, but I also really like the rose gold shade.

WET N WILD MegaGlo Highlighting Powder

I slept on this highlighter for so long, but I am so glad I finally gave in and purchased this highlighter. It is very pigmented and blends flawlessly on the skin. They have a better variety of shades than the Maybelline highlighter, although I prefer the Maybelline to the Wet N Wild. Both of these are amazing highlighters.
