I’ll be the first to admit that I often fall into the trap of thinking that a product costs more, it must be better than its cheaper counterparts. I often end up buying my beauty products from Sephora, Ulta, Bluemercury or Dermstore, but over the years I have stuck true to a few of my favorite must-buy drugstore beauty products. I am never without these 10 products in my beauty closet.

  1. Pixi by Petra Nourishing Cleansing Balm – This is my go-to cleansing balm that I use twice a day before my face wash. It does an amazing job of removing all sorts of dirt and makeup, allowing me to properly clean my face afterwards.
  2. Pixi by Petra Mattelustre Lipstick – These are great affordable lipsticks with a decent color range and great color payoff. They don’t last all day or through an intense meal, but they do a great job for day-to-day wear.
  3. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser – This is the only under-eye concealer I use. It covers dark circles, brightens and doesn’t crease. I choose it over designer brands all the time.
  4. Milani Baked Blush – This blush range is gorgeous and has such amazing shades. I used to use Luminoso, but recently have been reaching for Rose d’Oro.
  5. L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24hour Eye Shadow – These single-shade shadows are long lasting with great color payoff. Just a heads up – if you’re not a shimmer gal, these aren’t for you.
  6. Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge I’m a big sponge girl; I almost never apply my foundation with a brush. I’ve had the beauty blender before, but this Real Techniques is even better for a fraction of the cost
  7. Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat  – The name says it all. This top coat is seriously fast drying and does a great job of protecting your manicure.
  8. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lotion – This butter/lotion situation is AH-MA-ZING for dry, flakey skin. I like to cover myself in this at night and then wake up as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
  9. SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hand & Body Scrub – This is the only body scrub I use and can’t get enough. I always have backups on hand in case I run out before I can purchase another tub. It is seriously exfoliating and moisturizing … plus it smells delicious.
  10. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion – Like SheaMoisture, this is the only body lotion (outside of coca butter) I keep at home. It is the perfect every day lotion and I have a bottle in every room so I am never away from this precious life blood.
