Drugstore makeup starter kit

I remember when I first started buying makeup from the drugstore, I did not know where to start! There were so many things, I wanted every single item (don't we all?!). So I put together almost like a shopping list of things I would HIGHLY recommend for my fellow makeup lovers who are just starting out with their makeup collection. I owe all of these products and have repurchased all of these things mentioned. 

1. Walking on egg shells by Wet n Wild is an amazing palette and it is only $2.99! I could not believe how amazing the pigmentation is for this product. It is not chalky, very blend-able and lasts all day. This palette gives you such a nice settle smokey eye. I would also recommend the Silent treatment palette, also a very nice product and has a bit more shimmer than the Walking on egg shells palette. I have seen Wet n Wild products at Walgreens, CVS, and Jewel. 

2. Revlon ColorStay foundation is my all time favorite drugstore foundation. What I love about this product is that it comes for combination/oily skin as well as normal/dry skin and they have SO much color options. It has very good coverage, covers all of my blemishes and hyper pigmentation that I have and it lasts pretty much all day for me. I buy mine at Target for only $9.99! 

3. Loreal true match super blendable powder yes it is a powder but I actually use this as my bronzer! The color that I use is nut brown, the reason why I use powder is because it is supper blend-able. Especially if you are just starting out with bronzer you want something that is easy to use and if you do mess up you can easily just blend blend blend! 

4. Maybelline Falsies mascara I don't even know how many times I have re-purchased this mascara, many, many times! It is just pure magic in a tube, it gives you so much volume and length. It also comes in water proof and different color options.

5. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain is a wonderful lip product, the pigmentation is out of this world! The thing I really love about this product is how long it lasts on your lips, which is incredibly long they stain your lips so it's like the color never goes away! They have a minty smell to them which I like and they come in many different shades.

6. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder is my all time favorite powder. I get it in the transparent shade so that it matches my skin tone all year round. I have combination/oily skin and I love how this product gives me a matte finish. 

7. Loreal 16 Hour Infallible Eyeliner this is my favorite eyeliner. I wear contact lenses and I have tried so many different eyeliners from the drugstore and many of them would leave this cloudy blotch on my contact and I couldn't see right. After I tried this eyeliner I was in love, it did not leave that cloudy blotch on my contact lenses. This eyeliner does not smear or smudge, it wears well in the water line as well as if you use it to tight line.

8. e.l.f. Essential Eyelid Primer first of all lets start of with that this product is a $1.00!! This eyelid primer just blew me away, the quality is amazing and my eye shadow lasts all day without any creasing. I would even buy this over the Urban Decay potion primer and save so much money. I have extremely oily eyelids and I had no problems with this primer at all.

9. Covergirl BB Cream I really like this BB cream, I also like that it comes in different shades. It prevents my foundation from settling into all my fine lines. You can wear it on its own, but it is very light coverage kind of like your own skin but a bit better! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this drugstore makeup starter kit, I love every single one of these products that I have mentioned and I know you will too! 


  1. this is such a smart post! I remember going to the drug store for my first makeup purchases and had no clue what to get and what might/might not look good on me. Going neutral was definitely the way to start for me so I'm glad to see that's how you started this list as well! Love Revlon's balm stains! They are so easy to use and have great pigment!

    1. I am glad you enjoyed my post, I had a fun time putting it together! You can never go wrong with drugstore products, you really can find some amazing makeup for a steal!

  2. I love this list! Wet n Wild is unbeatable for the price, with surprisingly good quality. I also love NYX color palettes as well. I also need to restock on Falsies mascara, which is the holy grail of mascaras for me. I'm using Benefit's "They're real!" right now, which doesn't compare, despite being so much more expensive.


    1. I actually have always wanted to try Benefit's "They're real" but have never brought myself to do it, I just love the falsies mascara. Lets hope they never discontinue it!!

  3. These are great selections. I am a big believer in drug store products.

    1. I agree, some drug store products are even better than the high end makeup. Don't get me wrong, I do love the high end products but you can never go wrong with makeup from the drug store!
