Can You Really Get Good Makeup at the Drugstore?

Can you really get good good makeup at the drugstore? The short answer is yes. Looking beautiful really doesn’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of good eye, face, and lip products you can conveniently purchase at your local pharmacy that are highly pigmented, long-lasting, and great quality. There are various brands, such as L’Oréal Paris and Maybelline, which belong to the same parent company that produces Urban Decay, Lancôme Beauty and YSL Beauty, just to name a few. As such, a lot of these products benefit from the cutting-edge research used when developing their pricier counterparts.

That being said, you can definitely find some lackluster makeup in the same aisle. Some are made with low-quality ingredients that won’t deliver good results, and might even make you break out. In order to help you sift through all of it, we’ve created this handy guide. Get ready to look great for a lot less.

When it comes to eyebrow pencils, mascara, and eyeliner, which most women purchase on a consistent basis, why not turn to drugstore brands to save money? After all, a lot the products are designed to achieve results with the same precision as more expensive brands. For example, this L’Oréal Definer Brow Liner,  is a dupe for Anastasia’s Brow Wiz, at a fraction of the price. Both will help ensure your brows look gorgeous.

The story is similar for mascara and eyeliner. Here are two of our favorites, which are of great value and quality: Maybelline Falsies Mascara and Covergirl Line Exact Liner. You can easily spend twice as much on something else, but why would you?
