Drugstore Beauty Favorites

Hey my babes!

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know how much I love my beauty products!

And I also love a good DUPE as much as the next girl! Who doesn’t like to save money?!

Let’s pause for a second… I’ll never forget when one of my best friends stopped me mid convo and asked me what the word DUPE means!!! So, in the event you might wonder what it means too, let me give you a quick definition!

Dupe – A cheaper version of another product, which is so good and believable, that you can hardly tell the difference!

So, with that being said, let’s get started with my favorite BUDGET FRIENDLY beauty dupes from CVS! I love buying my drugstore beauty products from CVS because they have a FREE Beauty Club, where you get $3 coupons for every $30 you spend on beauty products!

I went with the Maybelline FIT ME foundation – Matte and Poreless. CLICK HERE TO SHOP IT! ($8.59)

It matches your skin tone, and has micro-powders that minimize pores and absorb oil for a naturally matte and poreless finish! I loved the feel and coverage of the foundation, and couldn’t believe how cheap it was. Reminded me of high end foundations, but at literally 1/4 of the price.

Longwearing Contouring Stick

I went with Maybelline SUPER STAY Multi Use Foundation Stick, in the color “Mocha”. CLICK HERE TO SHOP IT! ($12.49)

Something a lot of people don’t know – all you need to do to contour, is buy a foundation in a shade several lighter than the one you use for your entire face! Make sure it has a grey, cool undertone – you want your contouring to look like a natural shadow.

I apply in the hollows of my cheekbones, around my forehead hairline, and a little bit under the jawline!


I grabbed Maybelline Fit Me! in the shade “Peach”. I loved how it gave a coral colored pop that made my cheeks glow. CLICK HERE TO SHOP IT! ($5.79)

My daughter is obsessed with Youtube Beauty tutorials, and she swears this is the best affordable blush dupe ever! Tiny bit of shimmer, but in a good way.


Best discovery -NYX Matte Liquid Liner! I liked that it was like a felt tipped pen applicator. One of my favorite beauty Youtubers (Tati) said this was a super good, easy to apply liquid eyeliner, and she was right! I couldn’t believe how cheap it was too. CLICK HERE TO SHOP IT! ($7.19)

I apply it right along my lashline, to help my lashes appear thicker and fuller!


CoverGirl Lash Blast VOLUME, in the shade “Black”. CLICK HERE TO SHOP IT! ($8.99)

When it comes to lashes, I want length, but I also want THICKNESS! This totally delivered on both, and didn’t give me raccoon eyes either.

Always apply a second coat, before the first one is fully dry!!!!

Brow Pencil

I wanted a fill in plus gel combo, so I was stoked to find this Revlon Colorstay Brow Fantasy, in shade “Light Brown”. CLICK HERE TO SHOP IT! ($9.49)

I love that it has a chubby pencil on one end to fill in hairstrokes, and then a gel that sets everything at the other end. It matched my brows perfectly!

Longwearing Lip Color

Last, but certainly not least! Maybelline SUPER STAY Matte Ink, in the shade “Loyalist”. CLICK HERE TO SHOP! ($9.49)

If you know me, you know I love a good nude, pinky lip. I tried some swatches of this color on my hand, and a day later, post gym, shower, and dishes, the color was still there. This is the prettiest nude pink, add a bit of gloss to finish off the look!!

That’s it! I couldn’t believe how good the prices were, and I am in love with the final look! Let me know what you think, and what your favorite drugstore products are in the comments below!

    That’s awesome about the mascara! I used that one in high school, and if YOU recommend it, I know it is a good one! Also, I am intrigued by the lip color. You may have convinced me to give it a try!
