Best Drugstore Makeup

I'll be first to admit, I'm a MAC snob. I only use their brand of brushes, lipgloss, eyebrow pencil, etc. However, some of my staple makeup products are drugstore brand and I wanted to share.

I've tried ALL sorts of foundations both high and low end. I have very oily skin and my foundation would always look shiny after only an hour of wear. Then I found Revlon Colorstay Foundation (for oily skin). I've worn it for up to 12hrs with no shine. I've been using this for a year or more and I'm still very happy with it. The key is to apply it with MAC's stippling brush or a beauty blender.

I always, always come back to L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara. I get the curved brush addition in black.

I just found this product (recommended by the Makeup Geek) and I love it! I was looking for a powder alongside of my foundation to combat my oily skin. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder works great, but be sure to always apply powder with a brush and not a pad! 

What are your favorite drugstore makeup products? 


  1. I used the Maybelline Dream Matte powder…. until I found the Dream Wonder powder! Same great coverage, but the powder is so silky smooth and it just melts into my face and looks so natural. Love it.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation! I'll try that one next ;)
