Best Drugstore Makeup

What’s Hot At The Drugstore

It’s no secret that the drugstore has many amazing beauty products. They’re always pretty affordable as well, which is a given since they’re from the drugstore. Anyways, I’ve loved drugstore makeup for a long time now and I’m always trying to find the best of the best. And I think I just did!


I bought a few drugstore bits on my recent trips to the U.S. and I’ve been trying them out for a few weeks. I’ve had amazing results with some of the products so I wanted to share them with you. I also included a few products that aren’t necessarily the newest but they’re the best the drugstore has to offer. 

L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara

Best Drugstore Makeup

Ahh, the mascara that’s better than the Better Than Sex. And it’s cheaper too! In general, drugstore mascaras are great but this is one of the best. It makes your lashes look long and voluminous without clumping them up. Bonus: it doesn’t flake everywhere!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

Best Drugstore Makeup

This isn’t the newest bronzer from the drugstore but they recently came out with more colors. I’ve been using this product for over a year now and it is simply amazing. It smells divine, it’s buttery and it looks beautiful on the face. It’s unlike any other bronzer I own cause it is buildable but it doesn’t go patchy. If you haven’t tried this bronzer, do yourself a favor and go get it asap.

Essence Satin Touch Blush

Best Drugstore Makeup

Essence is on of the most affordable brands at the drugstore and while they have some duds, they also have some amazing products. Like the Satin Touch Blushes. My favorite thing about this product is the ultra soft formula. These babies are very pigmented but they’re easy to work with. The only downside to them is that there are only two shades but they’re both beautiful.

Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara

Best Drugstore Makeup

Yes, it’s another mascara! This is one of the newest products Maybelline has released and I’m in love with it! I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it has become one of my favorite mascaras. First of all, it smells like coconut which is an instant win. Second of all it makes my lashes look very long and defined and it is not clumpy whatsoever. I will say that it’s a more natural mascara so if you’re not into that then maybe try the L’Oreal one.

L’Oreal Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara

Best Drugstore Makeup

This is one of the newest products from L’Oreal’s brow stylist range -which I absolutely love. This product has a very tiny wand that works great to set your brows cause it doesn’t make a huge mess everywhere. It makes your brows look very bushy and it sets them very well.

The drugstore has definitely come out with some great products in the last few months and these were the best that I’ve tried so far. Have you tried any of these? Are there any drugstore products I absolutely need to try? Let me know 🙂

Thank you all so much for reading!

See you next week,

Isa ❤

    I’ve heard so many good things about the Physician’s formula bronzer, and have yet to invest in one yet. I’m definitely going to have get that next time. You know the lash paradise is a pretty good formula, but I still don’t think it’s better than the better than sex. It doesn’t make my lashes as voluminous or long as the better than sex, but I’m glad you got on with it really well! great post xx

      You definitely need to try the butter bronzer! Really? I like the lash paradise more cause it doesn’t flake as bad as the better than sex does on me. But I guess that’s more of a personal issue 😂 Thanks for reading girl ❤️
