I'm sure I'm not the only girl around here who can't afford department store brands all the time, so I thought I'd start a thread about the best drugstore makeup products! Please list your favorite drugstore brand products for each catagory, assuming there is a drugstore brand you like for that catagory! Also feel free to add catagories! Thanks! Posted Image

im not big on liquid foundation, but ive heard great things about loreal true match. the color selection is really large. im a hard to match color, and they dont have one for me. for pressed powders, i like jane. loreal air wear concealer is a good one. they make another one in a tube (dont know the name) thats pretty good. for eye shadow, the only ones i bother with are jane eye zings and milani e/s. theyre both really pigmented, very cheap, and come in great colors. another one of my fave brands is wet and wild. their loose glitter is great, and the blush sticks are awesome. the bronze blush stick looks and applies exactly like nars multiple in south beach. for mascara, loreal voluminous is the best, imo. no clumping or flaking. i love loreal colour juice l/g. they come in cute colors, have a great smell, and are cheap. they have LE colors all the time. cover girl makes good eye liners, but the rest of their products, especially e/s, are crap imo. maybelline wet shine diamonds l/g and l/s are good. theyre highly pigmented.

Foundation: Maybelline Dream Mousse Matte, Cover Girl Continuous wear, I used to really like the Revlon Colorstay foundations, but it was too much coverage for me. Almay Sport tinted moisturizers are great. I have Max Factor Facefinity and like that a lot, but it tends to break me out just a little. Powder: Haven't found a drugstore powder that I like. I've tried MANY! Concealor: L'Oreal used to have a good one that came in a stick, but they discontinued it. Eye Shadow: L'Oreal, Prestige, Rimmel, NYC. Mascara : I hear Max Factor 2000 calorie mascara is great, I just bought it, I will have to see tomorrow. I really do like Almay One Coat thickening mascara. Lipstick/Lipgloss: NYC, Wet N' Wild, Revlon, Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds, Cover Girl Outlast. Lipgloss, I like those Cover Girl ones in the long tubes. Bronzer: Prestige XXX Bronzer

L'Oreal color juices are fun too. Blush: Milani

Is that like a chemist brand I hate anything by Rimmel and Max Factor. Revlon is sort of ok and Maybelline is a NO NO. Leichner is a skins worst nightmare. Loreal is acceptable. But its a different standard in Europe to the USA. We get a lot more choice in Europe and can pick and choose. Like, i wouldnt normally buy from drug stores here but im really into Evian skincare at the moment as a cheap alternative to Decleor and Gatineau. Im broke so it will do instead of my usual brands. As for make up, i would never deviate from American brands . Estee Lauder has it for me at the moment. Europeans are more into anti animal testing especially in the Scands , Germany and Benilux areas.

I don't really use many drugstore products but here are the ones i like Mascara: Rimmel Extra Super Lash Lipstick: Maybelline Water Shine Diamonds in Irridescent Pink. (i only like this because of the colour, its very drying though so i have to wear a gloss with it)

Thanks for the replies, girls! I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup for very long (which is why I joined this board -- to learn more) so at the moment I prefer to experiment with drug store brands, since I'd hate to buy something expensive that I didn't like! (I've already thrown out one $20 Clinique foundation that didn't match my skin tone quite right!)

So far, some products I've found that I like are L'Oreal Mattique Foundation, L'Oreal Hydra Perfect loose powder (but it may be discontinued because it's not on their website), L'Oreal Endless Liquid Lipcolor in Forever Blushing, Maybelline Great Wear eyeliner... However I'm always on the lookout for something a little better! Posted Image
