12 Beauty Bloggers’ Favorite Drugstore Makeup Under $10
We all want to look like a million bucks… without spending it. Luckily, our favorite beauty bloggers know just the makeup products to keep us looking fine on a dime.
Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation, Maybelline
The ladies behind Pixiwoo think Maybelline’s Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation is one of the best affordable foundations out there, and we couldn’t agree more. This foundation gives your skin room to breathe and leaves you with a delicate, airbrushed look. It also covers fine lines instead of cakes into them, so it might just be the next best thing to the fountain of youth.

Perfection Skin Tone Adapting Concealer, Rimmel London
Sarah, the woman behind Stylish, Sassy & Classy recommends Rimmel London’s easily applicable concealer. It goes on streak-free and has great coverage, so it’s perfect for any spots or under-eye darkness you might be trying to cover up.

Prismatic Eyeshadows, NYX
Jordan Lipscombe loves NYX’s Prismatic Eyeshadows for their wide variety of colors and high pigmentation. She says they work even better than some high-end picks, and her favorite shades are Voodoo, Rose Dust, Sunset Days, and Dollface.
To Buy: Walmart, $6.49-10
H.I.P. Eyeshadow Duos, L’Oreal
Erin Bailey of Scandalous Beauty loves these super pigmented pods of eyeshadow. They are blendable, crease-resistant and long lasting, so it might just become your go-to for a night on the town. Bailey prefers the Brazen compact, which she says gets double the use out of by using the matte pink as blush and the dark brown as an eyebrow filler!
To Buy: L’Oreal, $8.25
High Definition Liquid Liner, NYC
NYC’s High Definition Liquid Liner is one of Sonja Joubert’s favorite drugstore beauty products. It’s easy to apply and customize, so whether you’re looking for dramatic wings or a subtle swipe above your lashes, this product will work great for you.
To Buy: Target, $3.95
Just Blushing Blush, LA Girl
Nicole Renee Cutler loves to use this ‘just glowing’ blush on its own or as a blush topper. She says it makes her skin look like it’s glowing, thanks to the gorgeous color paired with a subtle gold shimmer.
To buy: LA Girl, $7
Butter Bronzer, Physicians Formula
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer leaves the skin moisturized and glowy, so it’s no wonder beauty blogger Brittany Marie adores it. Its texture is somewhere between a cream and powder blush, which keeps your makeup from looking powdery or overly cakey.
To Buy: Walmart, $9.63
Infallible Lip Paints Metallics, L’Oreal
Danielle Gray, the original Style & Beauty Doctor, is crazy for these metallic lip paints in all colors. She says they are super pigmented and fairly long lasting for a product that isn’t marketed as such. This product doesn’t dry matte, so the glossy and metallic finish will last as long as the lip paint is on your lips.
To Buy: Target, $7.99
Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam, NYX
Bella Fiori compares NYX’s illuminator in Sunbeam to Nars’ Copacabana. The biggest difference between the two is actually about $30. This illuminator will leave your wallet thick and your skin radiant… what more could you want?

Lash Sensation Mascara, Maybelline
The reigning beauty queen of the internet, Zoella, has been recommending Maybelline’s Lash Sensation mascara for years, and based on her beauty tutorials, she knows what she’s talking about. She recommends it in “intense black” which will leave you with riveting lashes and the “full fan effect,” she says.
To Buy: Target, $6.79
Make It Last Setting Spray, Milani
Lock in your look with Milani’s setting spray, recommended by Kathleen Lights. Lights says the product sprays on lightly, with a delicate mist that’s finer than that of many other setting sprays. It also tends to take away the powdery look layers of makeup can sometimes cause, which is all the motivation we need to buy it.
To Buy: Milani, $10
Color Balm Crayon, Baby Lips
If you’re running late or not feeling a full face of makeup, Gabriel Zamora recommends Baby Lips’ Color Balm Crayon. It’s super moisturizing and highly pigmented, so one, gentle swipe will go a long way.
