The Best Drugstore Makeup of 2018
Best Drugstore Foundation
Maybelline SuperStay Full Coverage Foundation – Out of all the drugstore foundations I’ve tried, this one has the best coverage and truly lasts ALL DAY. I also love that it has an amazing shade range to choose from for that perfect match. I find myself reaching for it all the time even over some of my high end foundations.
Best Drugstore Concealer
Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer – If you love Tarte Shape Tape then you’re going to absolutely LOVE this full-coverage concealer from Makeup Revolution. It’s a total dupe, a fraction of the price, and even comes with more product! (Stay tuned for a full review of the entire Makeup Revolution conceal + define collection coming to the blog soon.)
Runner-up:wet n wild Photo Focus Concealer – At only $4 it really is a miracle that this concealer is SO good. This concealer is perfect for days where you want a light-weight concealer that brightens and covers up those pesky dark circles. And who can argue with this price?
Best Drugstore Primer
Maybelline FaceStudio Master Prime Blur + Smooth Primer – This primer is amazing at smoothing out those pores and helping your foundation stay in place. Works great for all skin types too!
Best Drugstore Bronzer
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer– I’ve only talked about this bronzer a billion times this year already, but in case you’ve been waiting to take the plunge into paradise, do it now! Haha seriously though this bronzer has ah-mazing pigmentation and smells like coconut heaven. I love using it to contour the cheeks and forehead.
Best Drugstore Blush
Milani Baked Blush – There really is no better blush out there than Milani Baked Blushes. They come in the most gorgeous colors ever and add the prettiest natural-looking shimmer to the cheeks. My personal faves are luminoso and berry amore, though you can’t go wrong with any of them! For more faves, check out my 10 drugstore blushes under $10.
Best Drugstore Highlighter
wet n wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder– I did a whole post on the 10 Best Drugstore Highlighters and though I have several favorites, this one still comes out on top. With just one quick swipe of this highlighting powder you can look like a glistening goddess, and wait for it…it’s less than $5!
Best Drugstore Setting Spray
NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray– Setting sprays have quickly became my best friend since moving to South Georgia, and I LOVE this dewy finish one from NYX. It locks in my makeup and adds a nice dewy finish, making my skin look nice and hydrated. I would especially recommend it for dry or combo skin!
Best Drugstore Mascara
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara – If you want a mascara that lengthens, adds volume, and curls all-in-one, then you need this mascara in your life. Also, the wand on this mascara is everything! It gets even those hard to reach baby lashes on the ends and inner corner.
Runner-up: Catrice Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara – On the flip side, if you want your lashes to look like you’re wearing falsies, give this amazing mascara a try. The wand also does a really great job of separating all the lashes so they don’t look clumpy – simply long + gorgeous.
Best Drugstore False Lashes
Ardell Faux Mink Demi Wispies – Speaking of falsies, these lashes are the perfect mix of flirty and dramatic and are SO beautiful! The invisible band also makes them seamlessly blend in with your natural lashes. I always get so many compliments when wearing these and they’re definitely my favorite.
Best Drugstore Liquid Lipstick
Physicians Formula Healthy Lip Liquid Lipsticks – These liquid lipsticks quickly became one of my absolute favorites last year, and people are always shocked when I tell them they’re from the drugstore! Unlike so many liquid lipsticks these are not drying on the lips at all with a soft velvet matte-finish, have beautiful coverage, and are long-lasting. You can get them in 13 gorgeous shades and find my full review with swatches in this post.
Best Drugstore Lipstick
Best Drugstore Cream Eyeliner
Pixi Eye Define Waterline – If you’re in need of an amazing waterline eyeliner, then I HIGHLY recommend you try this one from Pixi. It glides on so easy and stays put all day long. It also comes in a great nude color for brightening the eyes when you’re tired. Check out my full review + swatches in this post.
Best Drugstore Liquid Eyeliner
Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner – This amazing eyeliner from Maybelline is the best tool for creating a perfect winged liner. The thin to thick tip makes it so easy to apply and it doesn’t streak at all.
Best Drugstore Brow Pencil
Nyx Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil– This affordable brow pencil is a total dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and comes with a great shade range to match your brows perfectly.
Best Drugstore Makeup Remover Wipes
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – I’ve tried a lot of makeup remover wipes but somehow I always come back to these. They do an awesome job of removing all your makeup with just one wipe.
That wraps it up for today’s post! I hope you enjoyed my post on The Best Drugstore Makeup of 2018 and found some new makeup products to try out soon.
