As much as we love to invest in great skincare and some lux makeup, sometimes you just can’t
beat the drugstore! These new skin, hair, and makeup products are coming through to take you seamlessly from summer into fall, with hydrating formulas, earthy hues, and detoxifying ingredients. Whoever said looking good has to cost big bucks clearly didn’t know where to go for the good finds.
1. Almay Shadow Squad, $7
Most of us have a go-to eyeshadow color, but Almay’s new quads make it super easy to create different looks with one shade, four ways: matte, metallic, satin, glitter. And with pigments ranging from neutrals to bold brights, stocking your makeup bag (on the cheap!) won’t be an issue.
2. L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Burgundy, $6
L’Oréal’s bestselling Voluminous Mascara is now available in burgundy — just in time for fall! The mascara with a cult following that resists clumping, softens lashes, and builds volume just got a deep red tinged update, and the best part is it contains Panthenol and Ceramide-R to condition your lashes, without any flaking.
3. Yes To Tomatoes Anti Pollution Detoxifying Charcoal Bubbling Paper Mask, $4
Source: Yes To Tomatoes
We could all use a skin-clearing facial treatment after a summer of sun, and Yes To’s pore cleansing (and reducing) charcoal and oxygen mask gets the job done fast. Simply apply the sheet mask to your face and watch as it bubbles up, banishing impurities at the same time.
4. CYO Sweep Into Shape Blush Highlighter, $5.50
Versatile beauty products are our favorite and this all-in-one lip, blush, and highlighting stick comes in three universally flattering shades. Define, enhance, and add a pop of color — without the hassle of carrying three separate products around.
5. SheaMoisture Matcha Green Tea & Probiotics Soothing Relief Eye Cream, $11
Zap puffiness in the morning with this soothing eye cream that utilizes milk thistle to soften the delicate skin around your eye area and matcha green tea (which is rich in antioxidants) to protect from environmental factors, like damaging free radicals from pollution. The probiotics will also help improve your skin’s natural balance, leaving it more radiant.
6. DevaCurl Super Stretch Coconut Curl Elongator, $30
When you want frizz-free, perfectly coiled locks that aren’t greased up or weighing you down, reach for DevaCurl’s new curl elongator, which is free of sulfates, parabens, and silicones. The coconut oil also adds major shine.
7. Rimmel London Wonder Wing Eyeliner Stamp, $5
Achieving the ultimate cat eye will be a breeze when you’re armed with Rimmel London’s new inky black eyeliner. Its felt tip reaches even the most hard-to-get corners, and the wing-shaped “stamp” makes symmetrical flicks on both sides actually possible.
8. Rebels Refinery Geometric Pineapple Lip Balm, $6
If this isn’t the cutest lip balm we’ve ever seen, we don’t know what is. Plus it’s made with the highest quality coconut and sweet almond oils (plus Vitamin E) to keep your lips moisturized and hydrated all day long.
