Favorite drugstore beauty products

You don't always have to spend a lot of money to find good beauty products that work for you. Some of my favorite everyday beauty products are from the drugstore. I think they are worthy of sharing, so here we go!

I spent a lot of time looking for an eyeliner that would give me a nice smooth line, last all day and wasn't tedious to use. Finally, I came across this one. It goes on so smooth and it's easy to get a nice line without too much work or retouching. You wind the pencil up from the tube, so there is no messy sharpening, which is an added bonus. It's definitely the smoothest and darkest line I've gotten with a pencil. I use the Ebony Black color. It costs about $4.

I've tried so many mascaras, even higher end ones like Dior Show, but I always come back to Lash Stiletto. It lengthens and separates my lashes to perfection and it's never clumpy. The long, skinny and curved wand helps coat the very ends of my lashes which are otherwise invisible. For me, this is the perfect mascara! I wear the Very Black color. It costs about $8.

I've been using this creme since I've been pregnant. For some reason, my skin became very dry and my regular moisturizer was no longer cutting it. I use this creme during the day alone or under my makeup and at night before I go to bed. It's not too thick and absorbs nicely without any oily residue. I've had no breakouts with this at all and it hydrates my skin wonderfully. It costs about $12.

I just started using this product about a week ago and I already love it! I read Veronika's review on it a few weeks ago, so the next time I was at the drugstore, I decided to pick one up. I don't know if it's pregnancy related, but lately I have been feeling like the circles under my eyes are extra dark. This concealer definitely does the trick in hiding them. The formula covers really well but isn't too thick. It's very creamy and goes on nice and smooth with the sponge applicator tip. It doesn't look dry or cakey either, which is a problem I've run into with a few other concealers. I use the Fair shade and it blends with my skin perfectly. It costs about $9.

Since I've been pregnant, my hair has been so dry that I've had to cut back on washing it everyday. I wash it about every 2-3 days now, but sometimes it needs a little pick me up in between washings. This is the first and only dry shampoo I've tried, but I really like it. It's easy to spray on and smells great (even to my pregnant self)...very citrus-y and fresh...kind of like grapefruit. It absorbs any oil in my hair and even adds a little bit of volume so I can easily re-style it. You can't go wrong trying this product, it's only about $3!

I've been using this mousse for a couple of years now. It gives my hair a good amount of volume and a nice base for styling. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it and this product doesn't weigh it down at all. I actually spray it on my hand first and then distribute it to my roots. I find I get a little more control with where the mousse goes by doing it this way. It costs about $14.

I hope these reviews were helpful! Do you have any favorite drugstore beauty products? Please share in the comments!

*I have not been paid or received any perks for these reviews, they are just my honest opinions based on my experiences with the products.


  1. I read Veronika's review on that stuff, too....and last time I was in Target I could not remember what it was! I searched through her blog on my phone and couldn't find it. Thanks for this post, I'm gonna write it down this time, haha.
