Although we love our NARS lipsticks and Bobbi Brown eye shadows, there’s something magical about drugstore makeup. Not only do they provide amazing pigmentation and lasting power, but they do so at a fraction of the price! Since every beauty addict loves a good bargain, we’ve listed out our top picks.
1. Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow
With their intense payoff and smooth texture, Maybelline’s shadows are worth every penny. Our favourite shade? ‘Bad to the Bronze’!
2. Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel
When you spend the day clacking away on a keyboard, chip-proof nail lacquers are a necessity. Revlon’s formula stays on for days, without losing its shine or colour.
3. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
In our books, matte lipsticks are the chicest things to own. NYX’s fan-favourite ‘Copenhagen’ delivers an edgy, vampy pout, without drying our lips out.
4. Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer
Oily T-zones are a beauty editor’s worst nightmare. A tube of this baby keeps the shine in check and minimizes the appearance of pores. Win-win!
5. e.l.f. Small Stipple Brush
A girl is nothing without her tools. e.l.f.’s soft brush blends products in seamlessly to provide natural coverage. We love using it to apply our cream blushes and liquid foundations.
