We love fancy products as much as the next beauty junkie, but what we love even more is a good quality product that won't break the bank. With so many new, innovative skin care, hair care, and makeup formulas hitting the shelves at our local drugstore (or drugstore.com) every day, it's not hard to hunt down great products on a budget. We love these 10 new drugstore beauty buys for their functionality and their price—all under $20!
Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Cream SPF 30 ($14.95, drugstore.com) Our top pick for drugstore all-in-ones, this lightweight moisturizing BB lives up to its "super" claims. It primes and smoothes skin while firming, concealing, and brightening the complexion for a perfected look that lasts all day. Better still, it's hypoallergenic, paraben-free, gluten-free, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic—not bad for $14.95.
Rimmel London Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint ($2.99, rimmellondon.com) Less of a liquid and more of a super-pigmented mousse, just a tiny bit of this lightweight blush will leave you looking flushed all day long. The creamy, easy-to-blend formula dries down to a powdery, natural finish that won't budge.
Garnier Skin Renew 5 Second Blur Instant Smoother ($16.99, drugstore.com) If you have wrinkles, fine lines, and large pores that seem to be resistant to your skin care routine, an optical smoothing product might just be your ticket to flawless-looking skin. This mousse instantly fills in and blurs imperfections for a perfected complexion under your makeup or worn alone.
Almay Intense i-Color Eye Shadow Softies ($4.99, drugstore.com) What separates drugstore shadows from more expensive offerings is generally pigmentation: Cheaper products often lack the color punch of their pricier counterparts. Not so with this super-soft whipped powder formula, which glides on and is easily layered for a bold, vivid, crease-free look.
L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Color Vibrancy Root to Tip Fixer Restoring Treatment Leave-In Spray ($6.99, drugstore.com) For weakened hair compromised by coloring and heat styling, this spray-on treatment smoothes the cuticles of damaged strands for conditioning and color protection from root to tip for softer, shinier, healthier-looking hair.
CoverGirl TruBlend FixStick Concealer ($8.99, drugstore.com) A stick concealer like this one, which features a tapered tip, is the ultimate for ease in targeting blemishes. Soft and creamy, the formula disappears into skin almost instantly when blended, and the shades coordinate with the brand's TruBlend foundation to leave out the guesswork.
Clean & Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleaning Face Wash ($5.99, drugstore.com) Our faces requires a deeper clean at night than in the morning because of the environmental stressors and general pore-clogging, skin-dulling grime we accumulate over the course of the day. The calming aromas in this purifying cleanser help to soothe your mind while sea minerals and sea kelp extract wash away dirt, oil and impurities for a sound night's sleep.
Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stain ($6.49, drugstore.com) This moisturizing click-pen lip stain goes on like a high-shine gloss and dries down to a rich, comfortable stain that wears all day long without reapplication. It comes in eight pigmented shades, from a creamy pinkish nude to a deep plum, so you're bound to find one that suits you.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment ($5.99, drugstore.com) A longtime drugstore favorite, this classic conditioning treatment gets a problem-specific twist with a formula dedicated to those in need of stronger, more nourished hair. Just three minutes in the shower will leave long hair feeling restored and resilient against damage, with a light lotus scent that lingers all day.
Olay Fresh Effects Dew Over Hydrating Gel Moisturizer ($14.99, drugstore.com) This lightweight gel moisturizer is infused with a powder, which makes it ideal for skin prone to excess oil production throughout the day. Though formulated to mattify, this moisturizer doesn't sacrifice hydration for non-shiny skin—it's packed full of nourishing ingredients like glycerin and vitamin E.
