Top 10 Affordable Drugstore Products

Everyone loves to find a cheap cosmetic gem at the drugstore! Here are my top 10.

#10 Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush 5.7g/0.20 oz. for $6.00 @ Walmart.

Box blushes are pretty popular, but can be extremely pricey (some retail for $28!). Hard Candy's boxed blushes are great, very pigmented, and include a small brush (great for travel, but not necessarily every day).

#9 Jesse's Girl Loose Eyeshadows 2.5g for 4.99 @ Rite Aid

I love these. I have for years and years. I'm a huge fan of loose eyeshadows. I find them to be very dynamic. Jesse's Girl carries an interesting range of shades, and has something for everyone. These do, the majority of the time, need to be applied to a sticky base for best results. I love Sunlit Cactus and Penny Arcade.

#8 Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer .23 fl oz./7ml for aprx $5.00 @ Walmart or Rite Aid

This is a decent affordable concealer. I don't have a ton of concealing to do, but it's the most shade appropriate concealer I can find in the drugstore to date. And since it is affordable, I don't mind!

#7 Sinful Colors Nail Enamel .5 fl. oz./15 ml for $1.99 @ Rite Aid

Sinful Colors has an amazing line of nail polishes for the money! I absolutely love these. Two bucks? Seriously, how can you go wrong?? They have a great shade range and the also offer striping polishes for the same price. They do limited edition collections every season, so it keeps things interesting! One of my favorite shades is Seaweed.

#6 Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow 4g/.14oz for $6.00 @ Walmart (prices WILL vary)

I am... how would you say...? ADDICTED to these things. I own almost all of the shades. These do not crease, budge, smear or fade. I LOVE these. I have used these on my lips and eyes. Cream shadows are very versatile, especially for the money. There are a couple duds in the collection, the purple shade comes to mind immediately. However, my favorites are Bad to the Bronze and Bold Gold. Gorgeous.

#5 L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow 3.5g/.12oz for aprx $7.00 @ Walmart (Prices WILL vary)

These are soooo soft, smooth and blendable. These are akin to the Georgio Armani Eyes To Kill shadows that retail for $32 a piece! The shade range is lovely, and the texture of the product is spongy like a pressed pigment. Caution is advised, be gentle with these and they will be good to you!

#4 Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette 8.5g/.3oz for 4.99 @ Rite Aid and Walmart

Just go buy this. This palette is amazing. The color pay off is out of this world for a drugstore product. And lately Wet n Wild has been very shocking in the quality of their products! I own a lot of this brand, and am very impressed with what they have been releasing.

#3 L'Oreal Lacquer Liner 2.3g/.081oz for aprx $10.00 @ Rite Aid and Walmart

I adore gel liner. When this was released I knew I had to have it. It's ridiculously smooth, and black. It includes a cute brush with the packaging, which is actually usable. I use this on my waterline with an old pencil that I don't care for and I get all day staying power.

#2 Revlon Lip Butters product weight unavailable for aprx $7.50 @ Rite Aid and Walmart

These are some of the best lip products you can find in the drugstore. They're soft, smooth, moisturizing and come in something like 20 shades. So there is definitely something for everyone! These do need to be reapplied frequently (depending on how sheer/pigmented the shade is) but are totally worth it in my book.

#1 L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara .26fl oz for aprx $6.00 @ Walmart

This is my all time favorite mascara. I use nothing else, because when I do, I'm disappointed. This mascara is BLACK and it makes my lashes bangin'. Almost every day I get asked if my lashes are fake. No ma'am it's L'Oreal Carbon Black ;)

I hope you enjoyed my first top 10 installment. And if you have any requests, just let me know! Thanks for reading guys :)
