Beauty Bar-gains: 4 Drugstore Products You Need to Try

Once upon a time, I refused to wear drugstore makeup products. Call me snooty, but I was madly in the love with the way high end products made my face look. Then the real world knocked me off my high horse and back into reality. As I started browsing the drugstore makeup game again, I realized that not only was I crazy for overlooking their products because of the price, but the quality of drugstore makeup has stepped up immensely in the last few years. Read on for some of the best in drugstore beauty!

1.  Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette
I will be the first to admit that I need another eyeshadow palette like I need a hole in the head, but y’all this palette is seriously one that you need in your collection. At about $10 for 12 beautifully pigmented shades, you can’t go wrong. 

2. Sonia Kashuk Medium Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush 
Maybe it is because I’m a little bit of a tight wad now, but I refuse to splurge on brushes. I’m sure one day down the road, I’ll be swooning over Sigma brushes. However, until then I rely on Sonia Kashuk & e.l.f. for my brush needs. This is the perfect blending brush. 

Speaking affordable brushes, another one of my favorites is this $3 stippling brush. I apply my bronzer with this bad boy, and I just recently fell in the love with the way it makes my contour look. Plus, this brush never sheds.

4. Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner 
*drops to knees and thanks the sweet makeup gods for this creation* There are seriously not enough words in the world for me to praise this eyeliner. For those gals that fear the wing liner, this felt tip pen is your best friend. And at about $7, this eyeliner is a total steal. 

Now that I have shared my drugstore game-changers, I want to hear all about yours! Share your favorites in the comments below!
