Affordable Makeup that Beats High-End

Flower Beauty Light Illusion Foundation

We wouldn’t be exaggerating if we were to say that the Flower Beauty Light Illusion Foundation is one of the best, most luxurious feeling foundations at the drugstore. When it comes to luxury makeup most of our money is going towards the bougie packaging. Now you may or may not be okay with that, but Drew Barrymore’s Flower Beauty manages to give you this superior quality product in the most beautiful, expensive looking packaging at a very affordable price. It gives a dewy finish but also has a solid medium coverage and goes on smooth and flawless. We kid you not, this legit feels like our Chanel. Be sure to check this out.

ColourPop Ultra Blotted Lip

Have you been trying to ace that perfect, your lips but better, barely there stained lip look that makes you appear fresh and naturally beautiful? Inspired by celebrities worldwide, we surely have. But the problem in real life with stains or blotting a regular lipstick is the lack of staying power. ColourPop provides the solution by presenting its ultra blotted lip formula. This feels like a liquid lipstick except its lighter so goes on more comfortable, and once it dries it gives the lips the prefect blotted look. The best part is, it stays all day.

Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara

When it comes to mascaras, there’s no denying that Maybelline hits it out of the park. While we adore almost all the mascara tubes they churn out, the iconic yellow and purple Colossal Volum’ Express holds a special place in our heart. It is the blackest black, gives insane volume, length and drama, and knows how to hold a curl. It easily competes with our high end favorites. We love how widely available it is and given that mascaras need to be tossed out much more frequently than other makeup products, we love the price point too. Give this a try if you haven’t!
