The BEST drugstore makeup roundup!

Everybody I know LOVES a good splurge, but what is almost better than a good splurge is a save that looks like a really, really good splurge! You guys know I'm a big fan of a good dupe. I've got one for my favorite Givenchy satchel, one for the Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong sandal that I've worn to a million events, one for the always popular Stuart Weitzman OTK boots, and on and on and on!!! Recently I discovered an insanely amazing dupe for the Anastasia Brow Definer I love AT THE DRUGSTORE!!

One of my most FAQ is about drugstore makeup. Everybody wants to know what the best drugstore makeup is! Being at home with a brand new baby seemed like the perfect opportunity to try ALL the things and report back to you guys! The very, very best part? You can order ALL these products on Amazon so you don't even have to put on a bra or leave the house!!

This L'Oreal Infallible Pro Primer is the best drugstore primer I found. It has the most gorgeous glowy finish and helps smooth out lines before you apply foundation. It's also super hydrating, but lightweight. If you want to add even MORE glow I recommend adding this L'Oreal  Visible Lift Serum Tint. I applied it under my foundation in Gold and loved how pretty and refreshed it made my skin look.

Burt's Bees BB Cream is the best drugstore BB cream I have ever tried! It glides on so smooth and feels so light, plus I love how natural the coverage is. At under $15 it's also super affordable! The only downside is that it is not smudge-proof so sometimes I have to touchup after a few hours of wear.

This NYX Concealer has almost 700 perfect reviews and is my pick for the best drugstore concealer. It's a great concealer and under $5! You can't tell that I'm currently living that #newbornlife!

Over 450 perfect reviews don't lie-this Maybelline Facestudio Highlighter is the best drugstore highlighter. It has the prettiest sheen and makes all your best features just pop! The perfect affordable secret weapon for brilliant, luminous skin.

This Milani Baked Blush is the perfect pink! It gives you a beautiful healthy, peachy glow for less than $8.

I love how easy this Revlon ColorStay Eye Shadow is to apply. Seriously. In a pinch you could totally just apply it with your fingertips! It stays SO well and doesn't crease AT ALL!

L'Oreal Infallible Lacquer Eyeliner is the best drugstore eyeliner I tested. It totally lasts all day and goes on super duper smooth.

These NYX Butter Glosses are under $3!!! There are 16 colors to choose from and I kind of want them all. They're pigmented enough to wear alone or over a lipstick to add softness and shine.

Maybelline Superstay 24 is a total Lipsense dupe and it's amazing! The color stayed for HOURS, but didn't dry out my lips at all!

All these L'Oreal brow products were amazing drugstore dupes for high-end Anastasia products that I'm obsessed with for a fraction of the cost! The Brow Stylist Definer was the bomb. I usually lean towards taupes for my brows, but got this in brunette and felt like it was exactly the right shade for my face. It's a perfect dupe for the Anastasia Brow Definer.

The Brow Raiser is another awesome dupe and it's under $7! If you love the look of a perfectly arched brow, you NEED this! Brow gel is absolutely not a necessity, but if you love it I recommend this L'Oreal Brow Mascara.

L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray is legendary. It feels super light and disappears at the stroke of a brush, but hold curls or beachy waves all. day. long.

You guys already know that Olay is hands down my favorite drugstore skincare so no drugstore roundup would be complete without mentioning the Total Effects Moisturizer I'm using and the Deep Hydrating Eye Gel. I love how much these two products have simplified my skincare routine since Millie arrived!

Carol L. Harlow:

Do you have a good mascara recommendation?


Hi Carol! Corrine just added her favorite drugstore mascara at the very ended of the post! 🙂 -Kourtney


What about your favorite drug store foundation for each skin type?


Corrine’s favorite drugstore foundation is Burt’s Bees, but she hasn’t tried them all to know for sure! 🙂 -Kourtney


I love Maybellines ‘Falsies’ mascara (purple ish tube). Works better than anything I’ve tried (I’m usually a Clinique girl)


Where can I see the video of Corrine putting on her makeup? I thought I saw it on Instastories, but now I can’t find it. I need help with putting on the highlighter. 🙂


Hi Erin! If you go to Corrine’s instagram and click on her “Beauty” highlight, you’ll see the saved Instagram story there! 🙂 -Kourtney
