luxurious drugstore beauty product must haves

Drugstore Beauty Pick #1: Maybelline Matte + Poreless Foundation

My favorite luxurious drugstore beauty products

I am OBSESSED with my Maybelline matte + poreless foundation! I prefer this foundation over most of my high end foundations. It definitely gives that “poreless” finish. I do have large pores and find that many foundations I use tend to maximize them. Well this foundation does the opposite! I also struggle to find a foundation that is full coverage without looking “cakey”… thankfully this foundation leaves my skin looking flawless. Maybelline drugstore products never fail to impress me (usually). I have yet to find a drugstore foundation that I love more… although I will say Revlon Colorstay is pretty comparable. One thing that I wish was different about this foundation is the packaging. I prefer my foundations to have a pump so that it doesn’t get as messy and less product is wasted.

Drugstore Beauty Pick #2: Maybelline Dark Circle Concealer

Yet again, another Maybelline pick! I absolutely love this concealer. I suffer from baggy under eyes and dark circles. This drugstore beauty concealer by Maybelline helps to do the trick. I just apply it under my eye as a concealer before applying my foundation and it helps to really brighten it up! I swear by this concealer. Nothing else seems to do the trick. 

Drugstore Beauty Pick #3: Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer

I believe in primers. I love to use a good primer before applying my makeup because it helps to even out my skin texture. There’s just something about a good primer that helps my makeup not only last longer, but look better too! Pixi is one of my favorite luxurious drugstore beauty brands. Their Flawless Beauty primer does wonders!!! It’s one of my favorites.

Drugstore Beauty Pick #4: Pixi Glow Tonic

Like I said, Pixi drugstore beauty products is where it’s at! One product that I use daily as my toner is the Pixi Glow Tonic. I am obsessed with this toner! It has helped to even out my skin texture as well as help to clear up some of my problem areas. If you haven’t added a toner to your skin care routine yet, you should definitely try this one!

Drugstore Beauty Pick #5: Physician’s Formula Bronze Boost Contour

Favorite luxurious drugstore beauty products

I will be honest, I am VERY pale. I try my hardest to get my glow on in the summer, but I always fail. One of my favorite luxurious drugstore beauty brands is Physician’s formula. I LOVE their bronzers. I think what I love most is that it’s perfect for my pale skin. Many bronzers tend to make me look “muddy” but this contour trio is perfect. It comes with 3 shades of bronze so you have a variety to choose from depending on how tan your skin is.

Drugstore Beauty Pick #6: Loreal Voluminous Millions Lashes

I always find it kind of silly to splurge on mascara. Don’t get me wrong I do have a favorite high end mascara, BUT I would much rather spend less on a drugstore beauty product that works just as well. Loreal Voluminous Millions Lashes is my favorite drugstore mascara. It really lengthens and gives my lashes volume! Almost like “falsies”

Drugstore Beauty Pick #7: NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks

I am obsessed with NYX products. They are super affordable and great quality! I have been loving their Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks. My favorite shade currently is in Embellishment. I find these lipsticks make my lips look plump and full. They aren’t drying or sticky like many liquid lipsticks can be. Also, the color payoff is insane! Definitely recommend. 

Drugstore Beauty Pick #8: Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

When it comes to my skin care routine it is a MUST to have a good moisturizing lotion. Cetaphil has the BEST moisturizer. I have been using this moisturizer since I was in middle school. What I love most about it is that it doesn’t irritate or break out my skin. I have super sensitive skin so this works perfect as a daily moisturizer. I apply it day and night to help keep my skin hydrated and soft! Nothing can compare.

Drugstore Beauty Pick #9: Loreal Lumi Glotion

My favorite drugstore beauty products

The Loreal Lumi Glotion became a favorite of mine in the winter. The reason why I love this drugstore beauty product is because it is the PERFECT highlighter. It helped give me a summer glow throughout the winter, and now in the summer it has the same effect! A little goes a long way. This product feels luxurious on my skin.

Drugstore Beauty Pick #10: Garnier Micellar Water Cleansing Water

Another drugstore beauty product that is part of my everyday skin care routine! I love the Garnier Micellar Water. What I love most is that it makes taking off my makeup at the end of the night so easy. The micellar water really breaks down the product on my face and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean!

    I use this micellar water and LOVE it! I’m going to have to try that poreless foundation. I have large pores as well and my current foundation does not help the situation 🙁

  • Shirlee

    What color do you use in the foundation? I noticed 2 bottles, do you mix two colors? Also, how exactly do you use the Loreal Glotion? Thanks for sharing these! Excited to give them a try!!
