Drugstore makeup so good I’d pay high end prices for it? You heard that right! Not only are these drugstore makeup products the best, they’re $10 and under!
These drugstore makeup products are holy grail status for me and I hope to share a few items that you’ll end up loving, too!
Makeup $10 and Under I’d Pay High End Prices For
The video is worth watching because you can see me applying every single product!
Here’s everything I mentioned in the video!
The Best Makeup $10 and Under
e.l.f. Power Grip Primer
I love gripping primers, and I feel like they’re worth grabbing if you want your makeup to last longer. This one by e.l.f. is a great dupe to the Milk Hydrogrip primer!
Wet ‘n Wild Tinted Hydrator
This tinted hydrator never ceases to amaze me. I can’t believe it’s only $5! The shade range is truly abysmal, but if you can find something that works for your skin tone – try it! It gives light to medium coverage, blurs the skin, and wears really well all day!
L.A. Girl Color Corrector
I use a peach color corrector to help cancel out the bluish dark tones underneath my eyes. This one is incredible and only $5! They also have different colors depending on your needs.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
I’ve been using this concealer for over 10 years and I still love it! Lightweight, gives medium coverage, wears well.
NYX Bare With Me Concealer Serum
This is newer to me within the last year but has quickly shot up as one of my top favorite drugstore concealers. So hydrating under the eye, wears amazing, and can get almost to full coverage. Love it!
Wet ‘ n Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick
Cream bronzers are hard to come by in the drugstore, but this one in the shade “Call Me Maple” thoroughly impressed me! It’s for a neutral-warm undertone, is very easy to blend out, and wears well on the skin.
SheGlam Color Bloom Blush
These $5 liquid blushes are everything!! I think I’ve been screaming about them all year, and I’ll continue to. My favorite shade is Love Cake.
e.l.f. Luminous Putty Blush
e.l.f. released their putty blushes a little while ago, but recently released the luminous formula. I have to say, I like them even better!! They really feel luxurious and high end. I love the shade Bermuda.
e.l.f. Halo Glow Setting Powder
This setting powder is so special! You could tell me it’s Hourglass or something and I’d believe you. It’s got a slight sheen to it but NOT glittery. Makes the skin look healthy and lovely, and never flat matte!
Maybelline Loose Finishing Powder
If you’re looking for a good Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder dupe, look no further! This is nearly identical!
Milani Silky Matte Bronzing Powder
Such soft, beautiful powder bronzer. I definitely don’t give this product enough love. The shade Sun Kissed is a lovely neutral/cool tone that doesn’t look muddy or too orange. It’s great for fair skin!
Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara
Benefit Gimme Brow who? This is the same thing. Great tinted brow gel with some fibers!
Wet ‘n Wild Color Icon 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes
I am very picky when it comes to eyeshadow formulas, and I don’t love much at the drugstore. However, I have loved the Wet ’n Wild eyeshadow formula for over 10 years – I also feel like it just keeps getting better! There is a slight amount of kick up when you dip in, but they’re so smooth, easy to blend, and easy to work with! I don’t experience much fallout with them at all!
Essence The Blush
These powder blushes are incredibly soft and silky – they feel like a dream! They are easy to work with on the skin, as well. Easy to build up color, super flattering, and they have a slight sheen to them to leave the skin looking healthy.
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter
If you want a highlighter that isn’t too glittery or metallic, this is the one you want! It leaves the skin looking super healthy and lit-from-within without looking like you want to beam to outer space.
Maybelline Master Precise Skinny Eyeliner Gel Pencil
This tiny retractable eyeliner is an absolute staple in my collection. I don’t like to wear heavy eyeliner, and I mostly tightline when it comes to liner. This is perfect! Lasts really well, and is so easy to work with.
Essence Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara
Who knew I could love a $5 mascara so much? The green one is very popular on social media, but you HAVE to try the purple one!!!
Christina DW Lashes
These are super similar to the Ardell Demi Wispies lashes, but even cheaper! I love to cut them in half and wear them on the outer corners. Gives a natural, yet fluttery effect.
NYX Mechanical Lip Pencil in Sand Beige
This lip liner in the shade Sand Beige is probably my favorite lip liner of all time. It’s a nice deep neutral shade that’s meant for contouring the lip. Alone it doesn’t look that great, but it’s a necessity when wearing lighter neutrals – gives that perfect contour! Trust me when I say this is a must for wearing nudes!
L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Fairest Nude
This lipstick in the shade Fairest Nude is probably my favorite beige nude ever! It’s light in tone and completely neutral. No warm tones, and not too cool (never looks gray). Has a slight sheen to it, is comfortable, and pairs perfectly with a contouring lip liner. It’s a little too light for me to wear by itself but it’s absolutely perfect with a liner.
Wet ‘n Wild Cloud Pout
This lipstick formula is totally unique! It feels light a light, whipped mousse texture. Leaves the lips looking super blurred out (great for fine lines). So many amazing shades!
Milani Color Fetish Matte Lipstick
This lipstick in the shade Secret is a wonderful Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk dupe! The formula and packaging are absolutely amazing.
Milani Fruit Fetish Lip Oil
This Milani lip oil is a great Clarins Lip Oil dupe! I absolutely love it. Not too thin in texture, and not sticky at all. Makes the lips feel amazing.
Wet ‘n Wild Megaslicks Lip Gloss
Everyone loses their mind over the Maybelline lifter glosses (they are great, don’t get me wrong), but I’m constantly losing my mind how this is a $2-ish product. I don’t get how they made this so amazing for so cheap. It really feels high end!
Milani Make It Last Setting Spray
I am so die hard for Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, and this is the only other drugstore setting spray I’ve found to come close! Not 100% but I do love the formula, the mister, and the way it keeps my makeup in place!
Have you tried any of these amazing drugstore makeup products? Thank me later!
