5 Drugstore Makeup Brands We Love

iman cosmetics

We love to try makeup products from indie brands to specialty shops, but there’s something to love about drug store brands. For starters, they are easy to access when you are in a makeup rut, even if it’s in the middle of the night. We’ve all had those moments when we forget to pack a lipstick in our purse before heading out on the town. Or how about when you are traveling and realize that you forgot to pack your makeup bag? These all call for a trip to the drugstore STAT!

Our favorite thing about drugstore brands is that they allow us to ball on a budget. No need to spend all of your spending stash on one makeup item at the counter when you can get a couple of great products for the same price. Plus, drugstores usually have specials and coupons, which make you money go even further.

All this makeup talk has us ready to cruise down the makeup aisle! How about you? Are you ready to restock your makeup bag for spring?

We’ve rounded up of favorite makeup brands, scroll through to peep them!
