Holy-Grail Drug Store Beauty Products

Published

Vox Magazine

Some may say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but just think of how amazing it feels to open up a fresh tube of mascara or crack open a new bottle of shampoo. There’s just something so rejuvenating about going to CVS, Target, or Ulta and buying a haul of fresh hair and beauty products. Talk about bossing your life up!

But really, not everyone has $30 to spend on an eyeliner, let alone $70 to layout for conditioner (we won’t say names, but we’re not kidding). That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite inexpensive beauty products that are budget-friendly and sure to impress.

Let’s get started!

Essence Lash Princess Mascara

Ulta Beauty

If you are anything like us, you cannot be seen outside of the house without at least one coat of mascara over our eyelashes. Truly, it works wonders. While it is nice to splurge on a mascara from time to time, it can become a pricey vice if you’re a cult user. Luckily, we found this $5 mascara (you read that right ladies, FIVE. DOLLARS.) that can be found at any Ulta or drug store. It’s Essence Beauty’s “Lash Princess” mascara and it is the best way to lengthen and give yourself that “falsie” effect. The best part of all? It’s cruelty free and not tested on animals.

Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer

Target

Hate to admit this, but the only time you will catch us being pale is when we’re dead. We’ve got to look glowing and bronze at all times, and this product from Physician’s Formula is truly a god sent. The Butter Bronzer not only smells so amazing (like coconuts) but gives the perfect, beachy bronze to your face. It’s the perfect option for contouring, or simply bringing your face back to life after a night out. Thank us later!

L’Oreal Paris Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette

Crystal Candy Makeup

L’Oreal simply couldn’t have picked a better name for this absolutely stunning eyeshadow palette. Though it isn’t everyday that we go full glam and opt for a full eyeshadow look everyday, this palette has beautiful options that are even good for a day working from home. The pink tones are girly and complement any eye color well. It even is cherry scented. It looks and smells good enough to eat! 5 stars from us.

Maui Moisture Shampoo

Amazon

If you’re hip like us, you’d know that many shampoo brands are under fire for including DMDM Hydantoin in their shampoo. We’re no scientists here at Misdomesticated, but what we do know about this chemical is that it releases formaldehyde and causes hair loss. 3 words – no thank you! Lately we’ve been loving the Maui Moisture line of shampoo because its DMDM Hydantoin free, smells delicious, and leaves our hair silky smooth. The first ingredient used is aloe vera, and it’s also silicon/sulfate free. Count us in!

Native Body Wash

Target

On the topic of clean beauty, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Native’s line of body wash. Cleanliness is key nowadays, and nobody likes a person with B.O. We love this body wash because it not only smells so fresh and so clean, but it’s sulfate, paraben, and phthalate free! It’s also subtly scented using natural ingredients. Don’t run, walk!

What’s your favorite drug store beauty product?!

Have you been interest in getting lash extensions but are scared of the long term commitment that comes with them? Look no further! This award-winning mascara will give you similar results.

Additionally, it uses orchid stem cell complex which are plant cells from Japanese orchid plants that help the lashes grow on their own. Essentially, the more you use this mascara, the longer your natural lashes will you get! Also, this product is both dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested and approved. To take off this mascara, simply use a warm cloth and let the firm-holding tube formula do its job!

Charolette Tilbury is the new makeup line that everyone is talking about. The quality of this makeup is just amazing and will help you achieve your dreams of a voluminous lash look. This mascara has a brush with two sides, the first being a vertical flat side to load and lift the lashes and the second being a diamond shape with bristles side to comb and lift the lashes. If that wasn’t amazing enough, the dark liner black color creates an illusion of even larger lashes. Charolette Tilbury’s formula has polymer and keratin technology from the Larch tree which results in a light but stretchy combination that extends to every lash, root to tip.

As glossier states, their goal is for people to compliment you on your lashes and not your mascara. The thin bristles brush creates both volume and length to your lash, so you can get the best of both worlds!
