We get it. Buying expensive makeup gives us a rush. It feels good to treat yourself and know that you’re buying a quality product that will make you feel fancy while you’re wearing it. You can own Chanel or Dior for under $100. That’s hard to pass up, are we right?
But the problem is, many of the products at your local Sephora or the beauty counter at a department store are quite similar to the products you can find at the drugstore. Of course they don’t come with the same expensive and luxurious feeling, but hey, if you can get your whole entire face looking flawless for under $20, why would you not?
We think that there are some serious drugstore gems out there, you just have to find them! With the help of some amazing YouTube tutorials that we’re gathered, you can find new drugstore products to love and can get the same flawless beauty look for less than half the price.
