10 Best Drugstore Makeup Products Under $10

Everyone knows that feeling: you walk into the makeup aisle of the drugstore, see rows of products with low prices, but then you don’t know what to try. How can you possibly decide what makeup to buy if you don’t want to spend a lot of money? Here are 10 of the best makeup products to buy, all for under $10:

1. Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, $7.12

This is most people’s holy grail concealer. It autocorrects all dark circles without looking super pale. The applicator is spongey and anti-microbacterial, so it’s super hygienic and great to use on your face. 

2. L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara, $5.55

A cult favorite for a reason! This lifts and plumps your lashes, making them stand out and look luscious. The curved brush helps to style your lashes, giving you the perfect cat-eye.

3. Milani Stellar Lights Lip Gloss, $7.95

Holographic is so in right now! This hydrating lip gloss is so vibrant that it adds a cool pop to any look. It plumps your lips and gives you a gorgeous shine.

4. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, $7.07

This lightweight BB cream is perfect for anyone that wants coverage without feeling it. It’s slightly sheer, but is just thick enough to even out your skin tone and give it a nice glow.

5. NYX Butter Gloss, $2.98

Another cult favorite lip gloss for a fraction of the price it should probably be sold at. It glides on and has such great pigmentation, and the best part is the yummy vanilla smell.

6. Milani Baked Blush, $6.97

Milani is known for its awesomely priced drugstore products, and this blush is no exception. It’s a gorgeous pink shimmer that makes you glow from within.

7. Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer, $8.73

Another gorgeous face product, this bronzer makes you look like you’ve spent a year in the sun and has a shimmery glow. It smells like heaven and butter all in one!

8. Maybelline Color Tattoo, $5.40

This is an incredible product for the lazy girl who doesn’t like applying eye shadow. It’s a great alternative to powder eye shadow and is so simple and creamy that it’s a must-have for any makeup bag!

9. L’Oreal True Match concealer, $5.98

Another concealer with great coverage, but this one has a medium-thickness level. It’s cheap and gets the job done.

10. Aquaphor, $6.99

Although it’s not technically a makeup product, this is a tried and true favorite that you can put on all your ailments, from dry skin to pimples. It comes in a variety of sizes, is so effective, and doesn’t break the bank.

Hopefully next time you go to your local drugstore, you’ll have an easier time deciding which low-budget items are really worth the money!
