As a mom I can’t always splurge on the high-end beauty brands as much as i would like to. For some certain cosmetics I do end up buying the high-end products simply because I haven’t found a cheaper replacement option ,yet.! ( once I do I’ll share with you all)
I’ve discovered some drug store brands that do and feel the same as the designer brands for a much more budget cautious price tag! You can look super stunning while saving at the same time and honestly who doesn’t love that!!
Here are my 7 Drug store makeup finds that are a must!
1- Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation ( Target $9.99)
No lie it’s like a serum, moisturizer and foundation all in one! It leaves your skin tone looking even, hydrated and UV protected (SPF 20) with a killer flawless finish.
2- Physicians Formula #InstaReady Full Coverage Concealer (Walmart $9.83)
Best drug store concealer hands downs, but a bit hard to find so you might have to order it online. This formula is light ( thank you makeup Gods, no cakey finish!!) but full of pigment.Trust me, all you need is a tiny drop to cover your whole under-eye area..Plus it comes with the cute baby sponge!!
3- Covergirl Total Tease Mascara ( Target $8.99)
Now you all know I LOVE mascara!! This one is a thickening mascara that has a tiny brush on the tip of the brush wand which is amazing to separate your lashes and use on your lower lid lashes for that dramatic look that I adore.
4- Maybeline New York Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon ( Amazon $5.24)
I hate putting on lip colors and having my lips feel like sand paper, so this formula is the bomb on your smooches! It has all the moisture your lips need with packed on pigmented Color!
5- Maybeline New York Eye Studio Master Precis Liquid Liner ( Ulta Beauty $8.99)
This liner has a fine point making it extremely easy to use and achieve the “perfect cat eye” with a matte finish.
6- Pixi by Petra GelTint & SilkGloss ( Target $12.00)
This lip duo is extremely clever, on one side it’s a gloss, and on the other it’s a water-light stain. You can wear them together or separate.
7- Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish (Target $18.99)
Don’t get scared by the price because this nail polish is worth every penny! 7 days into my mani and NO chips!!! And trust me I’m always cleaning and washing dished no other drug store nail polish has ever lasted so long on my nails.
