My Five Favorite Drugstore Makeup Finds

We all love a good drugstore find. There is something so comforting about walking down the makeup aisles at Target and looking through each section and cultivating a collection of tried and true favorites. Here are some of my favorite products:

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

This concealer is my holy grail and probably will be for the rest of my life. I prefer a dewier, lighter makeup since my skin is so dry and concealer sometimes can be chalky and drying. This, however, glides on like butter and melts into the skin so well that you can’t even tell you’re wearing concealer but it provides the coverage needed. Highly, highly recommended. 

Nyx Micro Brow Pencil

This is the perfect dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencil for half the price. The pencil is so precise so you can accurately shape all the tiny gaps in your brows. There is no smudging and after using the spoolie side, it looks completely like your natural brows. 

Nyx Worth the Hype Mascara

If you want absurdly long and voluminous lashes, then this is the mascara for you. This, to my surprise, is not well known but I truly love this mascara. It makes my lashes long and full and more importantly, there is zero clumping. I cannot stand clumpy mascara and this one has never failed me. It is absolutely worth the hype. 

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm

A classic. I thought their normal lip balms were pretty average but their tinted ones are amazing. It gives a light wash of color while being actually hydrating; you’d think that finding a hydrating lip balm would be simple, but it is easier said than done. This balm comes in several shades and I always have it on me. 

Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist

This mist is a godsend for dry skin. It truly hydrates and plumps the skin since it contains hyaluronic acid to give the perfect dewy look. I use it before in my skincare, and sometimes after my makeup is done to lock it all in and it has never failed me. Pixi has a wide range of sprays and I am looking forward to trying more but I know this will always be my favorite. 

Have fun makeup shopping collegiettes!
