We're finally in the season of warm colors, dark lips, and pumpkin spice (for those who love it). When shopping for your go-to items to stock up on, nothing is as near, dear, and convenient as your local drugstore. Drugstore brands get buried underneath the mega titan beauty stores, but they have many treasured gems to add to your regime that won't break the bank. Check out our top 10 skincare and beauty products you can find at your local drugstore for under $16.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Face Sponge ($8.54 for 2)This little piece of heaven is one of the top branded beauty sponges on the market. The latex-free, precision tip and rounded sides are ideal for contouring around your face and covering blemishes/imperfections. You can use it damp for a glow or dry for a full coverage finish. Hark, did we hear angels calling? This must-have mascara breaks the mold of your fat, thick brushes and provides a long, skinny applicator for precise application to each lash. It is amazing for separation between individual lashes and clumps are a thing of the past.
Revlon Kiss Balm ($3.55)We all know that nothing is needed more than moisture on our lips during the fall season. Having a perfect pout doesn't always come easy, but with the Revlon Kiss Balm you get balance between tint, balm, and lipstick. With delicious scents like berry, coconut, and strawberry, your lips will thank you!
Pixi Skintreats Glow Tonic ($15.00)Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow! This is perfection in a bottle. If you are itching to get your summer glow back minus the sun, this the tonic for you. It not only serves as a facial toner, but deep cleans your pores and dead skin cells for that ultimate glow! Just because it's time to cover up doesn't mean you have to forget to moisturize your skin. This handy dandy miracle creme is perfect for restoring your cracked and dry skin. There's no better gift to your underarms than a deodorant who know how to do it right. Dove provides 48-hours protection that helps repair your dry or damaged skin and won't end up on clothes. You can never go wrong when investing in a good deodorant, so make sure it's one that has more benefits than just smelling good. A lotion that is made for literally getting out of the shower? Say it ain't so! I was in disbelief myself when I first purchased it, but the days of spending extra time to towel dry then moisturize are behind me. The oil infused moisture promotes luminous skin and will leave you with a post-shower glow you never had. I love these clay masks so much, I already own two of the four that come in the line. These aren't your ordinary masks, the triple threat combination each have help give your skin multiple doses of healthy. The smooth finish leaves your face bright and feeling like new without leaving blotches, over drying and being light enough to help your skin breathe.
Maybelline The City Mini Palette ($7.94)Mini is all the rage this fall. This striking palette is not only compact for on-the-go styling, but six different shades that can take your look from day to night. Whether you're going for soft and feminine or bold and daring, you can't beat the gorgeous pigmented colors for the price. Now, we know there is no such thing as a universal "nude" nail polish. Essie decided to expand their spectrum of nude polishes to nine different colors, just in time for fall. The color range is perfect to go with any fall styles you may want to rock throughout the season, universal colors are always great for long-term use.
The great thing about so many of these items is their universality and options that can fit your favorite scent, skin type, and beauty color. Here's to fall!
