12 Best Drugstore Makeup Products!

It’s hard to feed your makeup addiction on a budget, but I’ve managed to find twelve stellar products that you can find in drugstores for less! Feed your inner makeup addict!

As a teenager I shopped almost exclusively at Wal-Mart, Zellers (R.I.P.) and the local drugstore for my makeup, and those years of roaming the cosmetics aisle gave me ample opportunity to hone my bargain shopping skills, which are now quite considerable (if I do say so myself).

Now as an adult, I have moved past those placed to stores like Sephora and… well Sephora to buy my makeup, but to be honest it’s nice to have good products available for less money.

Check out my twelve favourite drugstore cosmetics products, all available at Target.

Pixi Flawless & Poreless Primer

This is a face primer sent from heaven, I swear. I’d take it over Smashbox any day!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer 

This bottle comes with a sponge tip for flawless application.

CoverGirl Simply Ageless Foundation

I realize there’s more than one “ageless” product in my list, which is ironic as I am a 20-something, but I find that “ageless” or anti-aging makeup is more moisturizing and therefore amazing for my dry skin!
This foundation makes your skin look absolutely flawless!

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation

This foundation is lighter than CoverGirl’s, but makes your skin look glow-y and gorgeous!

NYX Studio Finishing Powder – Translucent

Translucent powder is the way to go! Cover up your foundation or set your lipstick with this velvety smooth finishing powder.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder

This is a bronzer, blush and highlighter all in one! Plus it’s from Physicians Formula so you know it will be gentle on your skin.

Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brow Pencil

The brow product is perfect and comes with a built in spooly to brush your brows. The only downside is it’s very tough to sharpen.

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Pearls Marbleized Eyeshadow Duo

The colours of this product are pigmented and pearly – so beautiful!

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen

I used this liquid eyeliner all through high school. It’s so good! Comparable to Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara Curved Brush

I love the curved brush on this mascara because it helps to get all the eyelashes!

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm

Nothing like a moisturizing lip balm with a nice pop of colour! And there’s so many shades of Baby Lips.

Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolour

This stuff really lives up to its name- stays on all day!
