Happy 2017! I hope 2016 ended on a good note for y’all. Today we have another drugstore post because on other social media sites I have been getting more requests to focus on drugstore products. Personally, I am a huge fan of affordable makeup, like helloooo who isn’t. So these are some of my top 10 products that are all under $10! I think some of these products are absolute game changers and must haves in any collection! Hopefully you find some new products to try out for the New Year! Let me know what your top products are under $10, I would love to know!
Hands down the best primer from the drugstore! I think this is also a dupe for the Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional. They feel the same on the skin and personally I think they also give the same smoothing effect to the skin. The Coverall blurs out my pores and gives a beautiful soft canvas to apply any foundation on top of. Absolutely love this hidden gem of a product!
If you watch my tutorials, you already know my obsession with this powder. Although it is messy, this is one of the best powders I have ever tried. It is great for setting foundation and baking!
We have another dupe y’all. This is literally the exact same product as the Benefit Gimmie Brow but literally $20 cheaper, yes $20!! I love to use this to set my brows as well as give them just a little more definition on a day-to-day basis. Essence is carried at your local Ulta and is such an amazing, affordable brand! They also have some bomb other products like the Essence All About the Nudes Palette and the Essence Pure Nude Highlight… SO GOOD.
This is my go-to blush palette but it features my favorite blushes that are under $10! The two rectangle blushes are by Wet n Wild and these are my absolute favorite from the drugstore! They are both more of an apricot warm toned blush because if you can’t tell, that is my favorite lol. The second one in the top row is Apricot in The Middle Blush and the first one in the bottom row is Rose Champagne Blush. Both are absolutely stunning and give such a gorgeous finish to your cheeks. If you haven’t tried these out, honey… please.
Then the browney circle blush in the middle is the BH Cosmetics Floral Blush Bahama Bronze. This is another one of my favorite blushes ever because it is so warm and sunny that when I apply it to the apples of my cheeks, my cheeks look bronzed, flushed and glowy. The Floral Blushes come in 4 different shades but this one is my favorite!
Last but not least we have Makeup Geek Blushes. I have all the individuals pans which retail for $7. With shipping, you would be paying more than $10 but I thought I would include them anyways! I have Infatuation(3rd, top row) | Romance (4th, top row)| Bliss (2nd, bottom row) | Summer Fling (4th, bottom row). These are super pigmented and if you are looking into purchasing quality blushes, with long-lasting power and great pigmentation, I would highly recommend these! They also have them for sale in a compact if you would prefer that!
as you can probably tell, blushes are my thing lol
NYX Butter Glosses are a MUST HAVE. I am addicted to these, so much so that I own every color! These are just a few of the beautiful colors that I own. They are so pigmented for a $5 gloss, they smell like vanilla cupcakes and they last a good amount of time on the lips! I would recommend these to anyone, any age, any skin color because they are just honestly that good, you can’t go wrong!
Milani Lipsticks are one of the best lipsticks from the drugstore. These also smell like vanilla cupcakes, are very pigmented and so creamy. Personally, I prefer lipsticks over liquid lipsticks because although liquid lipsticks do look cool and trendy on the lips, they just aren’t functional when going out, like no one wants those butthole lips goin on. So with that being said, these are my go-to drugstore lipstick! They have a multitude of different finishes so you can have either a matte or a creme depending on your preference! I feel like not enough people give these credit/enough hype but they actually are amazing.
These are the best dramatic lashes from the drugstore. They are so fluffy and full that they literally can transform any look. The only thing that could be a negative is that the band is pretty thick so if you are a beginner at lashes, you might want to wait to try these because normally thicker bands are harder to apply, but besides that, these are glamorous and flawless!

I have a love hate relationship with Colourpop lippies if I must be honest. I say that because I LOVE Colourpop, like I LOVE them. I love their products, I love their color selection, the applicator, packaging, everything about them I really am obsessed with. I BREATH, SNEEZE, LOVE, DIE for their Ultra Satin lippies, omg. Best ones hand down, however their Ultra Mattes are the ones that I love but also hate. The colors of the ultra mattes are flawless, but the actual formula of the product is very drying, crackly and after a while, homegirl has the butthole lips. You can only apply one layer and for someone who is very messy when applying lipstick, this is an issue for me. Although I do own some, and still wear them, it really is my least favorite product from Colourpop because of the formula. On the other hand, the Ultra Satins are AMAZING. These are not drying what so ever, look absolutely flawless on the lips, you can go in with multiple applications and the color selection is everything. The ultra satins are one of Colourpop’s best products that they sell and you basically need them! For $6, you are getting the best of the best, seriously.
I had to include at least one foundation in this post. I already talked about this in my Top 5 Drugstore Foundations post so you can check that out for more in-depth info. but this foundation is my all time favorite from the drugstore. It is so beautiful on the skin, is buildable and easy to blend, and gives your skin such a healthy matte finish. I love this foundation and recommend it to those who have more combo/oily skin!
Phew, that was a lot but I hope you learned something new and found some new products that you want to try out for yourself! Thank you so much for reading and hopefully I will see y’all in the next one!
