5 Favorite Drug Store Cosmetics

drug store cosmetics

Good morning beauty-lovers! It’s been a super chilly few days and I’ve barely gone outside thus haven’t really worn any make up here lately. My face probably thanks me for the 48 hours of breathing time it got. Everyone should have a day once a week where they just don’t wear makeup. I imagine it really helps out your pores!

Since I’m still looking for a job right now, I’ve had to cut costs on my beauty expenses and accept that I’m not too posh for drugstore cosmetics. Are they all natural and made from coconut extract? No, but I’m ok with that for now! The other day I needed new face powder and found some I really liked at Wal-Mart believe it or not. Being that we’re on the subject of drugstore cosmetics, I rounded up a few of my favorites to share with you.

  1. Milani Face Powder
  2. Clearasil Daily Clear Hydra-Blast Pads
  3. Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette  (more about this palette here)
  4. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser
  5. Nyx Powder Blush (on sale for $2.50!)

I use each of these products on a daily basis and really like them. Probably my favorite is the Clearasil Daily Clear Pads because they’re abrasive enough to scrub out your pores but it doesn’t hurt. At the end of the day after I’ve taken all of my make up off, it’s crazy to see how much is left on my face when I’m using the pads. Actually, no, not crazy just gross! Taking care of your skin is really what ensures that your make up looks flawless.

Leave me a comment with your favorite drug store beauty products!

  1. As someone also looking for a job and thus on a tighter budget for all things, make up included, I love all the products you’ve mentioned. Recently I had to say “see you later” to some of my favorite, more expensive products and hello to the drug store alternatives. I loved your post!


  2. Recently I have gotten into some of the Burt’s Bees stuff that I really like. I have been using their anti-aging skin cleanser/serum/daily moisturizer. The Burt’s Bees line is definitely more than just lip balm these days! Great post! -Monica
