While I love a $100 jar of Creme de la Mer as much as the next gal, I also enjoy a steal when it comes to my beauty buys. There's just something about wondering through the isles of your favorite drugstore (I love Bushard's in
Here is a list of some of my favorite beauty steals and how I use them. I hope you'll think of me the next time your stocking up at your nearest CVS.
CoverGirl Great Lash Mascara, $4.99
I am not alone when I say that this is probably my favorite drugstore beauty buy. This tried and true formula in the neon pink and green tube makes your lashes long and luscious. I apply mine right after I curl my lashes for an instant eye "pick-me-up".
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, $4.25
This mineral based powder is just as good (if not better) than most expensive counter parts I've tired. The application is smooth and also provides excellent coverage at an excellent price. I like to apply mine with a large powder brush right after my concealer for a matte look that lasts all day.
Clairol Perfect 10 Hair Color, $11.99
Perfect 10 Hair ColorAfter years of having my hair colored professionally, I was recommended this hair color by a hair stylist friend of mine. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. However, after trying this at-home color for myself, I was hooked! It really does work in just 10 minutes and delivers a lasting salon-like color.
Alba Aloe and Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer, $17.99
If I had an award to give to the best oil-free moisturizer from drugstore, this would most definitely win. I love the fact that it's organic and feels silky smooth on the skin. The green tea infuses your skin with antioxidants while the aloe soothes. I apply a small amount right after cleansing and right before I apply makeup.
