Best Drug Store Makeup

Makeup can get really expensive, when it doesn't have to be. I think it's important to find what you want to splurge on and what you want to save on. All of these items below are under $15 and I would pick them over any expensive option any day!

NYX Concealer, Powder, and Butter Gloss
This is my favorite drug store makeup brand. All of their stuff is really good quality and inexpensive. The concealer is the best I've used- it doesn't look cakey but it lasts all day. It also doesn't seem to clog my pores. The butter gloss is my favorite lip gloss of all time (besides those awesome old VS lip glosses, who remembers those?!). It stays on, smells good, and has just the right amount of color. My favorite color is Tiramisu. Also, I've never liked a pressed powder until this one. I have dry skin and powder doesn't always work on my skin. This one is just the right amount and formula to blend in well and provide good coverage.

L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise
I am an avid mascara user. I have tried sooooo many mascaras over the years and this one tops the charts. It is like the "Better Than Sex" mascara but BETTER. It goes on well and my lashes look full and long. It holds a curl and it doesn't dry and flake like the Better Than Sex one. If there is any make up you need in your life- this is it.

Wet N' Wild Brow Pencil
I've had some bad eyebrow years because I couldn't find a product that was easy to use. This pencil was a game changer because it is so easy to use and goes on pretty natural. I don't like very dark brows but my blonde eye brows need a little help. This looks really natural and it has a brush on the other end to soften things up. You can also go heavy on this if you want. The best part is, it's $3 whole dollars!!

Elf Brushes
The price of make up brushes always blows my mind. To be honest, some of my Elf brushes have outlasted my Sephora brushes. Also, keep in mind that the longevity of a brush depends on how you care for them. I just always feel like if you can save on any makeup item, it's brushes.

Almay Goddess Gloss
I stumbled on this in Walgreens because it was on sale and I love it! It is the best holographic gloss without being overwhelming. It also lasts and smells good (but not overwhelming).

Beauty doesn't have to be expensive!! Enjoy.
