Best Drug Store Beauty Finds

Tuesday, October 12, 2010


As the economy continues to leave us in a state of flux, you don’t have to worry about spending too much money on beauty. Drug stores are filled with high quality beauty products that won’t break the bank and will have you looking beautiful on a budget. See what we found…


Mascara: It’s pink and green and is used by the pros as well as everyday beauties like us! Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($6, drugstores) is a classic that wins awards and a following that spans a very long time. Reason? It works! It separates, lengthens and defines each lash.

Powders: Minerals are all the rage and here’s why: they provide maximum coverage with minimal product. We absolutely love CoverGirl TRUblend Minerals ($8, drugstores). These loose powders apply easily with a powder brush and provide the flawless coverage of their more expensive counterparts.

Lipstick: L’Oreal’s ColourRiche Lipcolour ($9, drugstores) is velvety and goes on smooth to make lips look glam and gorgeous. It also hydrates to give you a supple smile.


Cleanser: We love Avalon Organics Vitamin C Refreshing Cleansing Gel ($10.99, drugstores). This cleanser takes it all off: makeup, oil, dirt. It smells heavenly and the big bottle lasts a long time. Your skin will feel refreshed and squeaky clean.

Moisturizer: An oldie but goodie is Olay Complete All Day Moisture Lotion ($9, drugstores). This fluid is light but provides maximum moisture and protects the skin from the sun with SPF 15.

Treatment: Get your skin glowing with Boots No. 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum ($22.99, Target). This magical potion firms, tightens and improves texture with ease. Look younger at a fraction of the cost of other brand name serums.


Shampoo: John Frieda’s series of shampoos for brunettes, blonds and red heads is ideal for anyone looking to rev up their look. At only $6-$12, you can make your color pop and still have some money to go out and flaunt your look.

Conditioner: Get massive, gorgeous hair with Bed Head’s Superstar Conditioner ($17, drugstores). This sulfate-free conditioner makes hair soft, manageable and oh-so-sexy!

Styling: Stylist to the stars Sally Hershberger has a line of products that we mere mortals can totally afford. Try the Sally Hershberger Style Primer for Normal to Thin Hair ($12.50, Target). Spray at the roots to make your hair come alive and volumize.
