Best Drugstore Makeup of 2018

by - 11/16/2018





I have honestly been thinking about this blog post for like six months now- not even kidding! I have been a crazy lady when it comes to drugstore makeup and I'm pretty sure I've tried just about everything there is- this year especially. No, not all of these things are new this year, some have been around for a while but it's just a roundup of all of my favorites as of now. I am wearing these products in the photos as well :)

This post is NOT sponsored, although I wish it were. It is truly just the things I really do love (although there are affiliate links). All opinions are my own.




1. MILANI BAKED BLUSH

I have it in the shade Dolce Pink. I don't like crazy, super obvious blush so this one is perfect for me. Goes on light but is super buildable if you want a more pigmented look.

2. LOREAL COLOUR RICHE POP BALM

I have a few different ones but my favorite is the shade Tender Mauve. Great for days where you don't want to look like you're wearing a ton of makeup. Is also a lip balm so moisturizes your lips at the same time.

3. WET N' WILD LIQUID CATSUIT LIPSTICK

Wears just as well as any other matte liquid lipstick I have tried but is like 1/4 of the price.

4. MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS

Smells amazing and literally makes your lips feel baby-soft.

5. PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER

I know I have already talked about this like 100x on my blog/social media so I'll just let you know that I absolutely love it and leave it at that :)

6. MILANI CONCEAL + PERFECT FOUNDATION

This stuff has amazzzzing coverage and goes on so smooth! I have had more people ask "what foundation are you wearing" when I have worn this than any other foundation (including the expensive ones). I wear the shade 02 Natural

7. MAYBELLINE FIT ME SET + SMOOTH POWDER

I use this to set my under eye after applying concealer (when I'm going for a more full-coverage look) so I usually like to look for one of the lightest shades I can find. It smooths my skin so well and is better priced than most of the pressed powders I've tried. The entire Fit Me line is honestly just amazing all the way around.

8. WET N' WILD DEWY FACE PRIMER

This is BY FAR the best-priced primer out there and I love that it isn't matte like all the other ones! It gives my makeup such a smooth, dewy finish and I keep buying it over and over again.

9. WET N' WILD PHOTOFOCUS CONCEALER

Wet N' Wild is seriously killing it this year. Love how smoothly this concealer goes on. Stays put throughout the day and is UNDER FIVE BUCKS. I use the shade Light Ivory

10. COVERGIRL TRU NAKED EYESHADOW

Truly obsessed with this one. I wasn't sure what a 'buttery eyeshadow' was until I tried this one. They have a bunch of different pallets but my favorite is the 'Roses' one.

11.WET N' WILD RETRACTABLE BROW PENCIL

Before I bought this one I had the Anastasia Brow Definer (which I really liked) but this one is literally the same exact thing and is waaaaay cheaper. So I returned that one and stuck with this one. Lately it has been the only thing I use on my brows.


12. MILANI HIGHLIGHTER

Milani is one of my favorite newer drugstore brands and I think they make such great stuff. Love this powder highlighter in the shade 'afterglow'.

13. NYX MATTE LIQUID EYELINER

I am VERY picky about liquid eyeliners. I have tried so many lately and this is the only one I like! Goes on smoothly and stays nice and black all day long.

14. PIXI FACIAL TONERS

I have tried probably around 7 different toners over the past year and these ones take the cake. I am loving the Rose one especially because it smells AMAZING. I use them after I wash off my makeup at night and before I put on moisturizer :)

WHEW! Okay so there you have it! Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you thought of them! Also let me know if there is a drugstore item not on this list that you are in love with and I will be sure to check it out.

Thanks so much for reading!
