Drug Store Beauty Brands That Are Super Lux
March 31, 2016
Forget everything you think you know about the drugstore. There are quality products at the drugstore — you just have to know where to look. We are going to spill the intel on the wares we adore that also don't break the bank. Just follow our lead, and you'll be shopping beauty bargains and looking like you spent a fortune.
LipglossLooking for a stick-to-your-lips-no-matter-what lipstick that actually doesn't feel sticky? This is the one for you. This lipgloss is easily comparable to much more expensive brands.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème, $5.49, available at DrugStore.com.
Gel CleanserIf you haven't jumped on the double-cleansing bandwagon yet, start here. E.L.F.'s silky formula goes really smooth and quickly removes your makeup without taxing the skin. Follow up with a foaming cleanser for squeaky-clean skin, minus the harsh scrubbing.
E.L.F. Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser, $10, available at E.L.F.
LotionEradicate dryness and save time in one step. Eucerin's body lotion hydrates while you're showering, so there's no need to towel off and glop on lotion. Plus, we love the soft, non-greasy finish.
Eucerin In-Shower Moisturizer, $10.99, available at Target.
FoundationAlthough this foundation offers sheer-to-medium coverage, we think it's more nuanced than that. A few dabs with the sponge are enough to blur imperfections and leave a beautiful, luminous glow.
L'Oréal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation, $13.99, available at Ulta.
Tinted Lip BalmThis moisturizing lip balm has a subtle tint, so you can take care of your pout while still getting a nice wash of color.
CoverGirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Lip Balm, $8.99, available at Ulta.
