In general, makeup products are quite expensive and a lot of times, there is a huge misconception that high-end products are just as good quality compared to drugstore products, which is completely false. Some drugstore and high-end brands produce their products in the same lab, thus their formulas are quite literally the same.
If you do extensive research, not only will you find dupes of the high-end products you use for a fraction of the price, but you will also find the same exact formula in a drugstore product. In today’s post, you can find 5 drugstore products that are literally the best and are worth every penny you are spending! Plus, who doesn’t love good quality makeup products at an affordable price? As always, if you are interested – keep on reading!
Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara
This mascara was only released a couple of months ago but so far, it only has amazing reviews! In general, Maybelline mascaras are well-loved and people rave about them, so it’s no surprise that this one has had a lot of positive feedback as well. This mascara elongates your lashes, makes them thicker & longer without any smudge, which is fab.
NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette – Warm Neutral
If you are looking for a really good eyeshadow palette in the drugstore, then you absolutely have to check this NYX one out! It’s a little pricier compared to the other palettes that are available in the drugstore, but it’s definitely worth the funds! The eyeshadows are very pigmented and they blend very well, letting you create various different looks using just this palette. You can use it on an everyday basis, as well as for special occasions – it’s so versatile! They also have a huge range of shades in this collection, so make sure to check them out too.
Makeup Revolution Renaissance Flick
Not only is the packaging of this eyeliner so pretty but the formula is amazing as well! You can easily create a winged liner using this eyeliner pen and it doesn’t fade either (result!). It goes over your eyeshadows and even over glitter, making it the perfect on-the-go liner. It’s really hard to find a pigmented black eyeliner that isn’t ashy, but this one is extremely pigmented! Note that the finish isn’t matte but satin, which you can fix by applying a black matte eyeshadow on top.
Barry M Lip Liner – Russe
Barry M lip liners are quite underrated, maybe it’s because they are more known for their nail varnish. Considering how good the formula is, a very creamy texture which glides on easily, this needs to be mentioned. It feels very comfortable on the lips and blends really easily, with a very affordable price point as well! If you are looking for the perfect pinkish nude shade, then you absolutely need to check out ‘Russe’.
NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream
Last but not least we have the infamous NYX soft matte lip creams, which are pretty much everyone’s drugstore favourite! So many people rave about this product and it’s for a very good reason. The lip creams are extremely comfortable on the lips, to the point you don’t even feel there is something on them. The formula is very different from a liquid lipstick, as it’s very moisturising and doesn’t dry your lips. They have a huge range of shades as well, so make sure to check them out!
