Top Five Drugstore Makeup Brands

Published February 22, 2016 by smartin9

Welcome back lovelies! I admit that my favorite thing in the world is to play with makeup. Especially high end makeup. There’s just something about high end makeup that makes one feel special, pampered and confident. I love trying the new trends that come out every season. This means trying out a lot of new products and inevitably spending some pretty decent coin on them. I’ve ( finally) learned that for trying out some of more out there bold trends drugstore makeup is the best. I mean I don’t want to go out and spend $60 on a  bright pink blusher and end up looking like  I’ve some weird skin disorder. So without further ado, here are my top five best drugstore makeup brands.

1. Revlon

I have used Revlon Colorstay foundation for years. There isn’t another foundation, high end or drugstore, that works for my skin. The other lipsticks, lip glosses, blushes etc. are very comparable to many high end products. If you want the absolute best drugstore makeup I definitely recommend this brand above others.



2. L’Oreal

L’Oreal is one of most trusted and respected brand of cosmetics. From makeup to haircare  they have the market cornered on quality products. Their products cater to a wide range of skin tones and textures. I know that when I buy a product from them I’m going to get a quality product on par with any  major high end brand.This brand is one of the higher priced drugstore brand but it is well worth the money.

3. Maybelline

Maybelline is a tried and true brand. Like all brands they’ve had their ups and downs. While I’ve personally not been a fan of their foundations , I have relied on them for other products. For example, my go to mascara has been their Great Lash  waterproof mascara. A moderately priced brand , Maybelline is one that offers more affordability with good quality.

4. Physician’s Formula


Physician’s  Formula Nude Wear Touch of Glow Foundation ( $14.95

Physician’s Formula  is a bit more expensive than other drugstore brands. In my humble opinion , for the most part it’s worth a few extra coins. It is one of the few makeup brands out there that is specifically geared toward sensitive skin. The packaging is a bit higher quality than other brands as well. But, it doesn’t offer a wide array of shades, making it a hit or miss when choosing your foundation and concealer. If ,however, you are among the lucky few who fit into the shade range; it’s worth it.

5. E.L F ( Eyes, Lips, Face )

Last but certainly not least we have e.l.f . This is by far my all time favorite cosmetic brand ever. With a price range that starts at  $1 you can’t bet the price. It is the most affordable cosmetic line out there. Don’t let the price fool you.  The quality of this makeup beats out a lot of the higher end brands. If you read  the ingredients on the back of the package, you’ll find that it contains many of the same ingredients as the more expensive brands. I highly recommend that you do.

Well there you have it. My top five favorite drugstore brands. I plan to goo into further detail of some of these brands. Let me know which would be your favorite. See you soon !
