Drugstore makeup has really come a long way from back in the day when it had a bad rep. A lot of drugstore brands have evolved over time and their quality is pretty darn great for the price! I am a drugstore makeup JUNKIE and I barely wear anything high end on myself anymore. It’s convenient, budget-friendly, and gets the job done! So, if you’re looking to save some coins and bypass the trial and error phase of shopping for drugstore makeup, you’re gonna want to keep reading! Here’s my current favorite drugstore makeup products of 2021!
Maybelline Super Stay Foundation
This has been my go-to foundation for the past year or so! I’ve been trying new drugstore foundations but I ALWAYS go back to this one. It has a broad shade range, it’s full coverage but lightweight, and has a skin-like finish! 10/10 in my book!
Elf Camo Concealer
For this full-coverage concealer to only be $6, I was shocked at how good it was! They have 2 different formulas, one with a matte finish for oily skin and one with a satin finish for dry skin. It has moisturizing components that help keep your under eyes hydrated and the applicator makes it so easy to apply.
Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter
I feel like this is the most underrated drugstore highlighter! It is SO bomb! You could go for a subtle glow by applying it lightly or even build it up for a more intense blinding glow! Comes in 4 different shades too, but I personally love “Molten Gold” on my skin tone!
NYX Epic Ink Liner
Liquid liner can be intimidating if you don’t have much experience with it. That’s why using a felt tip pen like this one changes the game and makes applying liner so much less stressful! This NYX Liner has a super pointy tip for the perfect flick to your winged liner look. It’s dark and applies so smoothly to skin making for a quick and stable application!
NYX Lip Liner
NYX lip products are my absolute FAVORITE! This lip liner is so pigmented and applies smoothly! They have SO many colors from nudes, reds, browns, etc.! It can be easy to go through lip liners pretty quickly so having one thats super affordable is KEY to saving ya monies.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
This is another one of my faves. It feels so good on your lips and you can hardly tell you have anything on throughout the day! It’s super creamy but dries down to a comfortable matte. Again, they have SO many different colors to choose from! A few of my faves are London, Cairo, and Abu Dhabi.
Maybelline Lifter Gloss with Hyaluronic Acid
This lip gloss is AMAZEEE! Like seriously, SO good! And this is coming from someone who used to prefer a matte lip. It’s such a good dupe for the Fenty Beauty lip gloss. It’s not sticky, gives a good shine, and is so SO worth the hype it’s been getting. If you don’t try any other product in this post, you should at LEAST grab this one! 😉
