There are a lot of great beauty products at the drugstore. Today's post is all about some that I feel are under rated. Let me know if you'd like to see a high end version of this or an over-rated products for drugstore or high end.


  • Milani Liquif'eye eye liner pencil: This is a great, affordable eyeliner. As far as drugstore pencil liners go, this is my absolute favorite and I feel like no one talks about it. It's definitely under rated. It's super pigmented, soft, blendable but doesn't budge when it sets. 
  • Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara: Need a great brow gel? Grab this mascara for $4. It sets your brows and they don't budge. I always have one of these on my desk.
  • e.l.f. Matte Lip Color: I purchased this expecting nothing, but it's actually really nice. It's smooth, pigmented and not drying, It lasts 5-6 hours. It doesn't set, so it will transfer and needs touched up, but it's small and easy to apply, so touching up on the go isn't a problem. Also, it's only $3!
  • L'oreal True Match Lumi Foundation: Everyone raves about the L'oreal True Match foundation, and it's warranted because it's really awesome. But, the Lumi version is amazing for people with dull or dry skin. The coverage is good, it's super blendable, has a huge range of shades and it has a pump. It's really good stuff, promise!
  • Nyx Baked Blush: These are seriously awesome. I've done an entire post on these because of how much I love them, but they're so blendable and they aren't glittery, but have a beautiful, dewy sheen that looks so pretty. They're definitely under rated and affordable.
  • L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow: These are the most pigmented, metallic, beautiful eyeshadows available at the drugstore. I have a few of these and love them all. You can get these at Ulta, and they're almost always buy one get one 50% off. They're so shiny and pretty. 
  • Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream: This is another product that has an entire blog post dedicated to it. They're liquid lipsticks. They're pigmented, smooth, opaque and dry totally matte. Once they set they generally don't transfer, but they aren't as long lasting as some others available on the market. However, if you aren't eating and drinking, they'll stick around 6-7 hours without needing touch ups and they're only $5 each. Oh, and they're typically on sale for buy one get on 50% off at Ulta as well.
  • Maybelline Lipsticks: Maybelline lipsticks are my favorite from the drugstore, and I don't hear a ton of people raving about them. They're generally pigmented, smooth and apply evenly. I've never purchased one that I didn't like and they're definitely affordable. The color range is pretty extensive, and they tend to be moisturizing. I'm definitely a fan.
So that's it for my under rated drugstore beauty products! I hope you liked this post!

What are some of the products from the drugstore you'd recommend?
Should I do an over rated drugstore products post or a high end version of either one?

Thanks for reading!
