Makeup can get quite expensive, especially if you’re a beauty junkie that’s obsessed with hitting Sephora or Ulta every week! Although you have your favorite brands, there are lots of drugstores alternatives that offer the same or better results. Not only do makeup pros swear by them, but they also cost a lot less than your favorite luxury brands and will get the job done just the same or better. So if you’re on a tight budget, here are a few drugstore makeup favorites you need to get your hands on:
Sure you might love Urban Decay’s Nude palettes, but their $50 price tag isn’t so lovely, which is why CoverGirl’s TruNaked Eyeshadow Palette in Nudes makes a great alternative. The palette features a wide assortment of bronze, brown and tan hues that will complement any eye color and allow you to splurge on other makeup favorites!
- Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue
- L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara
- Rimmel London Volume Flash Eye Shadow Stick
If you love nude lips, Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue is the perfect natural shade that will go on your lips and stay on like a stain. You’ll love the super silky formula that’s easy to apply. The shade will match your natural lip color and provide you with the perfect pout!
Mascara is a beauty staple, which is why many pros prefer to opt for drugstore options because they use it every day. And one of the best drugstore mascaras is L’Oreal ‘s Voluminous Butterfly Mascara, which has a spectacular brush that will lift your lashes at their base and then fan them out – all while giving them some serious volume.
If you’re a smoky eye queen, then you need a few Rimmel London Volume Flash Eye Shadow Sticks in your makeup bag since they’re vibrant, long-wearing and easy to use. You just apply it to the top and bottom of your lash line and then smudge with your fingers or a brush.
