Hey guys! I’m sorry I haven’t been active these past few months, but I’m back… and ready as ever!

The BEST Drugstore Makeup in All Categories!

- Nivea Men’s Sensitive Post-Shave Balm
The un-expected primer that took over the world. YouTuber, NikkieTutorials made a video of her using a men’s post-shave product as a primer… and how miraculous it is. One of the first ingredients is Glycerin, which acts like a glue to your makeup. I just recently got this, and never knew how much I was missing out. For only about $7 this Primer comes with more product than any I know of for that price. You can find it at any drugstore that carries Nivea… Such as Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc. Or here! – NIVEA Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm (Pack of 3)
2. L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation
Holy Cow. Guys… This foundation is one of the BEST I have found. Including low and high end. The coverage, is incredible. Of course, lots and lots of beauty bloggers discovered this long ago, but it is AMAZING. Dare I say… It’s just as good if not better than Mac Studio Fix Fluid? Try it for yourself, for around $10. Get it here- L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation
3. Elf HD Lifting Concealer and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Both gorgeous concealers, for un-beatable prices. My favorite between the 2 would have to be the fit-me one… But the ELF is another great one. Get them here-
4. Rimmel London Natural Bronzer
This bronzer, is one of my all time favs. Even though it is a more “Natural” Bronzer, you can always build it up for a more dramatic look. As you can see…. It’s been used so much, I’ve already hit the pan! Maybe it’s time to get another one. Get it here- Rimmel Natural Bronzer
5. ELF Blush Palette
Elf Blush Palette… A.K.A The only blush I’ve been able to find at the drugstore, that contains all I would ever want in a blush. My favorite part of this piece, is the fact that you get not one… not two… but 4 varieties of blush colors. To fit any skin complection. Get it here- E.l.f. Blush Palette
6. NYX Strobe of Genius Highlighter Palette
Quite possibly, my FAVORITE product on this list… NYX Strobe of Genius Palette. It is a little more on the pricey side for drugstore, but with the varieties and amount of product you get… it’s so worth it. Buy it here!- NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette
7. NYX Eyebrow Gel & Essence Make-Me-Brow
These products go great together. I like using the NYX Gel, as a replacement for my Anastasia Beverley Hills Dip-Brow, when I feel like changing it up a bit. Sometimes… I feel like it lasts WAY longer than my dip-brow. For the Essence Make-Me-Brows I find them to be identical to my Benefit gimme brow! These drastic price difference comparing them… Will save you a ton! Find them here-
8. Milani Everyday Eyes Palette
When I originally saw this gorgeous palette, I knew I had to have it. I personally, haven’t really seen anyone in the beauty community talk or rave about this palette, and it is so underrated. The pigmentation, is insane. These shadows are so cream and blendable it should be a crime. Not only the eyeshadows, but the packaging is eye-catching. To top it all off, it comes with a pretty decent brush. Do yourself a favor, and buy one of these lovelies. Get it here- Milani Everyday Eyes Powder Eyeshadow, Earthy Elements
9. Essence Lash Princess Mascara
Don’t have much or many eyelashes, or maybe their not very long? Essence has got you covered. I like pairing this with my roller lash, but on it’s own it’s equally gorgeous. Doesn’t the packaging just scream “Buy me!”? Get it here- Essence Lash Princess Mascara
10. Wet n Wild Liquid Liners
These liners, won’t be smudging anytime soon. My favorite is by far the H2O proof ones, but the mega liner ones have a lovely color range. Get them here!
11. NYX Liquid Lipsticks
I’m a huge fan of the brand NYX, their lip products always bring me back wanting more. You can go check out my full review on the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks here. But when it comes to the lingerie ones, I’m just as equally impressed and pleased. This specific shade, I like to create a kind of an ombre effect with this one. I love both of these gorgeous lipsticks! Get them here-
12. Drugstore Brushes (that are the bomb.com)
I’ve gathered some of my all time FAVORITE drugstore brushes that I almost always use on a daily basis. Here it goes!
- Real Techniques Brushes
When I say these brushes are crazy soft and make blending an ease, I mean it. Possibly one of the most overrated brush/sponge brands on the internet… but I decided to include it anyways. Here they are- Real Techniques Core Collection Set
- Wet n Wild & Sonia Kashuk Brushes
These two brands, release great quality brushes. Wet n Wild always being insanely affordable, and Sonia Kashuk a little more pricey, but still a bargain. Get them here-
- ULTA Brushes
Ulta has a great range of brushes. Though it may not really be “drugstore” its still a great price. One of my favorites is the Lash and Brow Comb. Get it here.
- Artis Brush Dupes
Again, these are not really “drugstore” BUT, just wait. I bought a set of 10 knock-off Artis brushes for around $15. It also came with a mesh makeup bag and one of those brush egg cleaners. I didn’t really expect them to be great because of the price, but boy was I wrong. The bristles are tightly packed together, to make it feel like a dense dream on your face. I can’t stress how much I love these brushes enough. Get them here (along with the bag and egg-cleaner)- Toothbrush Artis Brushes
Alright guys! That’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this list, as I had a lot of fun with it!
