Raise of hands who literally cringes when checking out at Sephora because you know the total is absurd? Second raise of hands who keeps going anyway because they have a problem? I could not tell you the point in my life I decided it was totally necessary to spend $54 on an eyeshadow pallet (looking at you Naked2) But yet here I am spending way too much money on products that I could get at the drugstore. You may be asking yourself “why don’t you do that then? Well that’s because I have a flair for the fabulous and like to spend money like I’m Beyonce. So for my other boujee ladies who want quality products without the high end price I give you the list of my favorite products that can be found at the drugstore but won’t feel cheap!
This bronzer is my ultimate go to when I want to feel sun kissed. For half the price of most big name makeup brands you can get the exact same look.
Lip Plumper: e.l.f. Lip Plumper
I was pleasantly surprised with this one after using Too Faced lip plumper for so long I didn’t expect too much from a $3 E.L.F product but I really noticed a difference within minutes of using the product and have since switched over from Too Faced to exclusively using this E.L.F one.
Highlight: wet n wild Highlighting Powder
This is that drugstore product that I shamelessly brag about all the time. It’s super pigmented and I honestly prefer it to my more expensive highlighters for every day looks. I have found that a lot of the Wet and Wild highlighters look really good and blend easily into the rest of my look. After using a few drugstore highlighters that weren’t so good I had nearly sworn them off until this one came around.
Powder: L’Oréal Paris True Match Powder
Okay we are going to take a minute here because I want to talk about this product. I hate when my foundation looks oily. I can not stand having my face product move around because my powder is not doing it’s job. Thus my love of this powder was born! I have been using L’Oreal true match for a couple of years now and have actually gone to more expensive brands only to return to this one. I feel like this is that one drugstore product that keeps me coming back.
These are just a few of my go to products when I find myself wandering through CVS but there isn’t anything wrong with finding products that work just the same for half the price. So if you’re on a budget (or just don’t want to put yourself into debt for makeup) check out some of my favorites and tell me what you think!
