Drugstore Beauty Staples to Buy Now!

Drugstore Beauty Staples to Buy Now via. www.birdieshoots.com

One beauty myth that needs debunking is that quality products cost big bucks. This is completely not true. In fact some of the best beauty staples can cost less than a cup of coffee! I’ve tested thousands of products and have compiled a list of the top ten products to add to your skin and makeup regimen.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

 If you haven’t heard of micellar water, you’ve been missing out. This 3-in-1 product removes stubborn makeup, cleanses and leaves you with soft, nourished skin. Cleansing waters are typically very expensive abroad, but something many beauty gurus overseas swear by. Lucky for us, Garnier released a new line of micellar water here in the United States.

Neutrogena Makeup Removing Wipes

These makeup removing wipes are the perfect size for tossing into a purse or gym bag. The formulated wipes remove all makeup and will leave your feeling soft and moisturized. 

L’Oreal Infallible

The Infallible line is one of the best drugstore foundations in terms of coverage and shade range. The formula is super blendable and leaves skin with a smooth, matte finish. I was first introduced to the Infallible line here, where I shared more about how I apply. 

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser

This concealer is one of the best selling formulas on the market. The container has a ton of product which makes this buy great for the money. The applicator on the top is a circular sponge, and it’s suggested that you apply with this under the eye. I’ve been using this in my beauty routine for years, and find that if you remove this sponge the product isn’t as messy, and you can apply using your fingers or a small sponge.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

This sponge could very well be the best dupe on the market for theBeauty Blender. Available in both double and single packs, this sponge is one of the best sellers and constantly appears on top beauty lists. Formulated for multiple uses, the angles on the sponge allow you to apply everything from concealer to foundation to highlighter.


I'm sure it comes at no surprise that this product is on my list. This is by far one of my all-time favorite lip products. This liquid lipstick will set you back a whopping $6 dollars, and it's worth every penny. The product itself sets pretty quick, but stays through eating and drinking without budging. When it comes time to take it off, the color wont stain lips!
