Unfortunately, most of us don’t have unlimited budgets to spend on cosmetics, haircare and skincare. Luckily, there are tons of great beauty products to be found just a few aisles over from your laundry detergent and dental floss. Hair stylists, makeup artists and dermatologists consistently pick drugstore finds like Maybelline Great Lash and Cetaphil as their favorites — and we have more than a few of our own that we can’t live without. Tell us: What is your favorite drugstore beauty product?

LOVE LOVE LOVE Aquaphor! It’s great for chapped lips, dry cuticles, stubborn flyaways, unruly brows, and so much more! I never leave home without it. You can even mix it with an eyeliner to make an instant cream-like shadow.

I’m a truly fan of Almay’s production – skincare to beauty suff, because it has reasonable price and it’s hypoallergenic and fragrance free. I have been using their facial foam(antiagening) and their milky eyeshadow most. The last one is very good base and color for all eye makeup. And also non-waterproof eye-mascara. But for liquid make-up fundation i have been chosing some more expensive trademarks.

Almay One Coat Mascara! 2 coats and lashes look super long and thick!

Goody rubberbands are the best, especially the ones that dont have the metal piece because then they don’t tug at your hair.

Maybelline Full N’ Soft mascara is my favorite drugstore product and, dare I say, beats out many higher end mascaras, such as Chanel Inimitable and Kiss Me Mascara. This masara is great for the daytime, because it gives you a lush, dense feathery look that is defined, lengthened and multiplied.

Without question, my favorite drugstore beauty deal is LipSmackers Lip Gloss in Marshmallow (#617). I’ve been wearing it for almost 10 years and it provides just the right hint of shimmer without being sticky – plus it’s YUMMY! Sure, I have lots of expensive Chanel glosses, but the Marshmallow Lipsmackers is my reliable standby. It’s getting harder to find the marshmallow flavor at drugstores, so whenever I come across it, I buy out their whole stock. Luckily at $2 each, this isn’t hard on the wallet!

Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask its awesome! I love how my face feels after it! :) Smells/feels refreshing, refines skin, improves large pores, black heads, bumps and pimples, and is cheap! ;)

I love Neutrogena cleansers; they’re so refreshing. Also, L’oreal Juicy gloss is awesome, and lasts forever.

Burt’s bees lip balm and Physician’s Formula lash in a tube. Two simple products that will make you feel dolled up. If you buy the sheer colors Burt’s Bees, you can double it as a blush for an instant glow!


My favorite drug store beauty product is Clean & Clear Morning Burst exfoliating daily scrub. I used to use Exfolience Clarte by Lancome, and tried this at a friend of mine’s house and got hooked! It is a better product and way better than 23 dollars a tube!
