Top 5 Drugstore Makeup Brands & GIVEAWAY!

Good Morning Loves! It’s already hump day and you guys thought this week was going to be bad (haha!).  Seriously I was riding on that struggle bus yesterday and am so happy that we are halfway done.  To continue the beauty week train I thought I would talk about 5 drugstore makeup brands that I love!

We all know that I was once a huge makeup junkie so I’ve tried a lot of different brands and have found what really works for me and doesn’t.  There are also some that are beyond amazing and or better than high end products.  I’m all about saving money so if I can find something at $5 dollars and can do such a great job that I don’t have to pay $20 dollars anymore I’ll take it and run!  Let’s get started on my top 5! Also there is a giveaway at the end of this to make sure to stay tuned till the end.

L’Oreal Paris

We have all used or tried L’oreal products at some point in our lives but do you realize how many of their products are great. My absolute favorite hands down drugstore foundation is by L’oreal and it’s the L’Oreal True Match Foundation Super Blendable Makeup.  It’s a light to medium coverage but gives you the most flawless look. The best part about it is that they have such a huge range of shades that almost anyone can find their perfect color.  Or if you are like me you mix two different shades. 🙂

NYX Cosmetics

I don’t think I’ve ever bought something from NYX that I didn’t like. Let’s talk about my number one product from them which is their Micro Eyebrow Pencil.  I was a ride or die Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil fan until this bad boy launched.  Don’t get me wrong the Anastasia one is still amazing but this one is half the price and can do the same thing.  Not only that but they have my exact color so there really is no need to spend that much.  If you haven’t tried it run! You will love it. Also can we talk about all their amazing lip products!? I have one of each in my collection (no lie).

Wet n Wild Beauty

What can I say, this was one of the first makeup brands I ever bought. They are so affordable and they do have a few products that are really good! I’m talking eyeshadow palettes or trios, matte lipsticks, and of course who can forget about their blushes.  I’ve been able to do so many looks with their products and for $10 or less you can buy so much! The only problem I ever have is finding them.  I usually can only find them at Walgreens so when I do make a trip out I make sure and stock up!

e.l.f. Cosmetics

That’s right guys I’m talking about that $1-5 makeup brand. Okay so there are a few things that are over that price point but you get the picture.  I remember when my first e.l.f. product was their eyebrow kit.  I had no idea how to use it but once I did I realize how amazing the product was.  They are such an affordable brand and yes some of their items are hit or misses but when they are hits watch out high end brands because I’m saving some $$$.

Maybelline New York

How many of us didn’t buy that cute pink plastic tube of mascara with the green cap when we were in high school!? That’s right I’m talking about the Great Lash mascara. I don’t think I’ve ever found a mascara by Maybelline that I didn’t like.  My favorite drugstore mascara brand definitely goes out to them and who can forget about all those amazing lipsticks!

That wraps up my top 5 drugstore makeup brands.  I’ve listed some of my favorite goodies underneath each for you to shop or get info on if you are wanting to make some changes to your makeup regime or if you are just bored with it and want to try new products I promise you won’t break the budget.  Now for the fun news I’ve got a great giveaway from one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands!


That’s right I’m talking about NYX! The giveaway features this amazing lipstick trio and makeup set.  This is not sponsored by NYX at all but I just wanted to show you guys some love by giving you something amazing! I’ve been growing so much and have been getting so much amazing love and feedback from you guys so now it’s my turn! I’ll announce the winner one week from today! Good luck!

    L’Oreal and NYX will probably always be my favorite drugstore brands! A lot of their products perform better than their expensive/designer counter parts!

    I love Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation! It’s my go to foundation when I really don’t feel like worrying about how it looks! The ELF eyebrow kit & cream eyeliner have been my go-tos since they came out! I didn’t have high hopes for them, but I loved the cream eyeliner it’s light but stays on!
