I love finding the best drugstore makeup brands on the market, because while I love makeup, I don’t love spending a fortune on it. Thanks to drugstore brands, that doesn’t have to be the case. Sonia Kashuk brand has some great products, as does Dollar General's Believe Brand which is newer but gaining tons of traction and Nyx which you can find at Walmart, Target, and most drug stores. You’d be surprised at just how great drugstore makeup brands are, and since there's a ton, I've decided to save you time and make a list of my faves, so here you go!
1. SONIA KASHUK
If you haven’t been sucked into Sonia Kashuk’s gorgeous packaging in the aisles of Target, I think it’s safe to say you’ve never been to Target. Sure, the packaging sucks you in, but the makeup is somehow even better. It’s high-end quality for drugstore prices, making it one of my favorite drugstore brands on the market.
It seems like every product I’ve tried from Maybelline is better than the last. It’s probably one of the best drugstore makeup brands you’ll find. I’ve tried a little bit of everything when it comes to Maybelline, and I’m never disappointed. Their BB creams are some of the cheapest yet some of the best, as is nearly everything else I’ve tried. If you’re looking for a drugstore makeup brand that won’t break the bank, Maybelline is the best.
While Pixi is much more expensive than the average drugstore makeup brand, the quality of the makeup is so great that you won’t care. Sure, it’s a few bucks more expensive than what you’d usually buy from the drugstore, but you’ll love the makeup so much that you won’t care!
4. Physicians Formula
If you constantly have issues with makeup and allergic reactions, you don’t need to invest in prescriptions and other fixes. Instead, try Physicians Formula. Their makeup is always amazing, plus it will really help any issues you’re having with your makeup. My personal favorite is the Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Blush, not just because it’s a gorgeous color, but also because it really does claim to boost your happiness!
NYX might not be your first choice when you’re searching through the makeup aisles of your drugstore, but maybe it should be. They make just about every makeup you could ever need, and you will love everything you try from them. I personally love their eyeshadows, because they’re super pigmented and stay all day.
When I was going through an obsession with red lipstick, I immediately turned to Rimmel’s lipsticks. They have some of the best lipsticks on the market, especially their collection with Kate Moss. Whether you’re looking for red lipstick or just a neutral, the formula will impress you so much that you’ll never want to try another lipstick!
Neutrogena is one of those unavoidable makeup brands that you’ve probably tried at some point or another. Personally, when I think back on my favorite makeup I’ve tried over the years, my mind usually goes back to a Neutrogena product. It seems like the makeup I’ve stuck with the longest over the years is Neutrogena. Everything they make for the face is especially great, so if you have acne or other skin problems, Neutrogena is definitely one you should try out!
