Monday Favorites: Drugstore Beauty Buys

My philosophy has always been beauty products don’t have to cost you a fortune. Don’t get me wrong, there are some department store/brand name beauty products that I can’t live without, but there are also many great products that you can pick up on your next stop to the drugstore that are easy on the wallet!


1. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong Deep Conditioner

I have been a fan of the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner since high school. From what I remember there was only one kind when I first started using it. Now, I’ve noticed they offer a couple different versions based on what your hair needs are.

This blonde always needs some strength, but I’d really love to try the shine one as well! Especially because colder weather always means my hair starts to look a little dull.

2. L’oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation


I have a love hate relationship with pricey foundations. I have never found one that I’m absolutely crazy about, and even if I do find one that is nice, I can’t justify spending $40-$50 on one when I go through foundation so quickly. I picked this one up on a whim, mostly because I am obsessed with the Miracle Blur Skin Smoother which I also talked about here. These two products together are a winning combo! I bought the shade 204 Creamy Natural and it’s a perfect match.

3. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

Again, this product is a blast from my high school past, which is when I last used these bouncy blushes. I forgot how good they are! They are very sheer, and have a little shimmer and they look so natural because the formula is a cross between creamy/powdery. I’ve also been obsessing over the Beauty Blender Blusher, which I use with these. I picked up the shades Rose Petal and Orchid Hush. Don’t let the purple shade of Orchid Hush scare you, because it’s so pretty on. Bonus, these are buy one get one half off at Ulta!

4. Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer 


I’ve been seeing this product all over the place. I’ve kept thinking to myself I really need to try this! I don’t frequently buy a lot of bronzer. I use it almost daily, but it’s not something I go out of my way to get. I am obsessed with this! The shade, the texture, how well it blends, the smell! Yes, the smell. It smells like coconuts and suntan lotion and the beach, I swear. Butter Bronzer is worth every penny.

5. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

This is one of those products I will always be obsessed with. I first tried it over a year ago, and it’s become one of my beauty staples. I’ve tried other concealers in between, and this one works the best. I have both the Neutralizer and Brightener shade, and I’m telling you, they work wonders on my circles! Plus for $8.99, these concealers are a steal!

Happy Monday babes! Any tips on what drugstore beauty buys you’re loving?
