Drugstore beauty products get a bad rap. But the truth is some of my favorite beauty products can be found for 10 dollars or less in the cosmetics aisle.

Hi guys,

Drugstore beauty products get a bad rap. I know there’s nothing like treating yourself to a new palette from Sephora, but some of my favorite beauty products are straight from the cosmetics aisle at the drugstore, y’all. From eye shadows, to lip colors, to mascara, some of my go-to products cost about 10 bucks or less. A steal, right? Here are a few of my faves:

TruNaked Palettes by Covergirl

I am seriously loving the TruNaked Palettes by Covergirl! They have several different ones, but my FAVES are the Goldens and the Nudes. They are perfect for day or night! These are seriously in my main rotation.

TruNaked Nudes

I love that I can achieve a really natural look with these. I would say that these are more of a daytime look, as they are really neutral, but they are great for achieving a clean and simple look. Definitely a palette that can work on a variety of skin tones.

TruNaked Goldens

This is seriously a go-to for me. I have green eyes, and golden tones really bring out my eye color. I love that this palette also has bronzes and hints of green. They are fabulous. I have found that these stay on all day, and the neutral colors are perfect for blending and it’s also a great mix of colors for day and night! Definitely a favorite of mine.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

I have always been a fan of Neutrogena. I love their facial cleansers, and I have always used their products since I first started wearing make-up. I have sensitive skin, and I have always had great luck with their products. I always wore Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Enhancers Tinted Moisturizer and one day when I was intending on buying that I came across this new product, and I have really enjoyed it! It has great moisturizing qualities, and has great coverage without looking heavy. I love that it gives an almost dewy look to the skin, and the doe foot applicator is great for applying the right amount to the right areas.

Revlon Highlighting Palette Rose Glow

This is still one of my blush/bronzer highlighter combos. I love how shimmery it is, and I always feel like I have a really nice glowing look whenever I wear it. I typically apply this in the shape of a 3 starting at my forehead, cheek bones, and down to my chin. I do this on both sides, and it creates a really nice bronzed and glowing look. I have used both of these colors and love them. The Rose Glow is a bit lighter for a rosy finish, but I enjoy the Peach Glow during the summer, when my face is a bit more tanned. Definitely a must for your make-up bag!

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara

This mascara is a great lengthening mascara! I am a big fan of it in waterproof. I love that this mascara make my lashes look long and luscious without clumping. This is a great finishing touch to your look to make your eyes look bright and bold! Definitely one of my fave mascaras!

Covergirl Outlast Lipcolor in Eternal Flame

This is seriously my go-to lip color when I need a long wear lipstick. Literally it stays on all day. Like if I don’t wash my make-up off before bed and I’m wearing this, I will literally still be wearing it in the morning. It’s that good. My only drawback is that it tends to dry my lips a bit, but I love the moisturizing top coat. It’s great to reapply throughout the day to maintain the glossy look. Definitely always in my makeup back for a statement red lip that will stick around all day.

These products always have a place in my make-up stash. Sometimes the price doesn’t determine the quality of the product and you don’t have to spend a fortune to look amazing. It’s all about finding those products that deliver a lot for less. There are tons of really amazing great drugstore beauty products, and it’s so much fun to experiment and find that are good enough to fill your make-up bag.

  • Taylor Mead

    I’m not one to spend a crazy amount of money on makeup, so it’s sometimes tough to find quality stuff in the drugstores, but have found that the products I use definitely work for me. I will totally give these a try, too! Thanks so much for the awesome suggestions!

      Yes, same! I can invest in a good eyeshadow or something like that, but majority of my makeup is from drugstores and I’m totally happy with the products I use! I’m right there with you, girl! Glad you enjoyed the post! 🙂

  • Amanda Rodriguez

    I only buy drugstore makeup… so I’m glad there is some decent stuff out there!

    • Jade Chesser

      Yes! It’s definitely out there! I don’t think you have to spend a lot to look amazing 😉

  • kristin mccarthy

    God I am such a drugstore junkie. Ill probably go tonight and buy half of these- which is ironic since I stay home with four kids and never have to really get jazzed up.

      You know what’s so funny, I remember watching an interview with Judy Grier (I think that’s how you spell it). She always plays a supporting role in movies, but she was talking about how when she’s stressed she does “drugstore therapy” where she will go to Walgreens or CVS and buy makeup. It’s so true! Haha So you can just say that it’s your therapy 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the post!

    Oh, I’ve been looking for a good lengthening mascara. And I am also a big fan of Neutrogena cosmetics. It’s all my cleansers and foundation!

    • Jade Chesser

      Yes I love this mascara! And I’m obsessed with Neutrogena products. I use all their facial cleansers too!
