My philosophy on beauty is similar to that of fashion in that I believe you don’t have to spend a lot to achieve a flawless everyday look. Today, I’m rounding up 10 drugstore beauty products I swear by. I’ve been using many of these brands and products for years now – and constantly rotate between all of them. Although it is important to spend more on certain items, such as a good moisturizer or a serum, it’s not always necessary to splurge on makeup. Plus, drugstore beauty brands have really stepped up their game in recent years, delivering formulations, textures, and colors that rival premium options. I’m happy to share that over the years, I’ve found many drugstore dupes that come close to – or are just as good as products that are double their price. Keep scrolling to see what they are.
