Cheap Beauty

Beauty products don't have to be expensive to be good. There are several drug store beauty products that I love just as much as brands I find at Bloomies and Sephora. Here's my rundown of favorite drug store beauty products.

This is actually my favorite mascara. It lengthens and separates like no other mascara I've tried, and trust me, I've tried most of them all. This mascara has a special formula that's supposed to lengthen lashes by 4mm. I can't confirm the 4mm, but I can definitely confirm my lashes look longer after using it.

We all get a bit of color during the summer, so we need to adjust our foundation shade accordingly. I have my favorite foundations and they are a bit expensive, but I don't like to shell out that much money for several shades to compliment my skin year round. Instead I opt for this BB Cream during the summer. It evens out my skin tone, hydrates, and brightens.

I get frustrated with most concealers because they can be cakey and too thick. This one is gel based, so it glides on smoothly and is light, even if you layer it a bit.  


My dermatologist recommended this one to me during the dead of winter when my skin was going crazy. She's a huge fan of this cleanser because its formula helps protect the skin's natural moisture barrier while still effectively cleansing and removing makeup.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover & Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - Night Calming

I've loved this eye makeup remover for years. You don't need much, so the bottle will last you quite some time. It's not greasy like a few others I've tried so it doesn't bother my contact lenses. Soak a cotton ball and wipe over your eyelid and lashes, then soak a q-tip to clean up any harder to reach areas.

The makeup remover wipes are a lazy (or drunk...hey, it happens) girl's dream! We all know how important it is to remove the day's makeup and dirt from our faces before bed...but sometimes we just don't want to go through the whole routine. That's where these guys come in super-handy. They're pre-moistened...so grab one, sweep it across your face, throw on some moisturizer, and call it a night.
