With the requirements for masks changing and the possibility of wearing cheeks for the summer becoming more tangible every day, we can’t help but worry about makeup again. One thing that doesn’t inspire us when we rediscover different types of makeup is how quickly the cost of new products can add up. Luckily, that doesn’t mean you can’t fill your makeup bag with good, fresh finds. All you have to do is head to the pharmacy (online or in real life). With the best pharmacy makeup products, you can enjoy the latest makeup trends without breaking your budget. Below we list some of our top drugstore products, including our best drugstore mascara and drugstore foundation to buy in 2021.

For dramatic lashes, from simple to stunning, grab this TikTok sensation. With a whipped formula that gives your lashes length, volume and a light feel, this mascara will have you experimenting with different eye makeup looks.
L’Oréal Paris Volumious Lash Paradise Rinse-Off Mascara
This time-honored mascara continues to top the must-have list with its silky smooth formula that won’t flake, flake or smudge. The soft brush with wavy bristles applies the perfect amount of mascara for long, voluminous lashes.
L’Oréal Volumetric Original Wash-off Bold Eye Mascara
This classic drugstore product is known for its ability to create volume for a full, bold, clump-free look. And since it’s all about playing with color in 2021, including colored mascara, try it in deep purple for a look that’s both trendy and scroll-stopping. There is no better time to change your bangs.
L’Oréal Paris Le Liner Signature Easy Glide Mechanical Eyeliner Waterproof
While you’re experimenting with colored mascara, why not pair it with colored eyeliner? Try a stylish graphic liner in blue knit or purple wool to spice up your makeup this summer. The smooth, non-flaky formula glides on easily and stays in place while color lasts.
Eyeshadow L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Monos
Not only can you find these eyeshadows at the drugstore, these eye shadows are a game changer in your daily makeup routine. Available in both shimmery and matte shades, the pigment-rich gel-powder colors are as easy to apply as they are striking.
OUR BEST PHARMACY EYEBROW MAKEUP FOR 2021
Since no look is complete without polished brows, here are two brow makeup products to add to your makeup bag.
L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Long Lasting Brow Top Coat, Waterproof Universal Clear
If you haven’t heard, brow gels are super hot these days and this sheer, waterproof formula is the next level of gel feeling. This is the perfect top coat that will extend the life of your brow pencil and give you a trendy natural look. It will keep your brows closed and in place for up to 30 hours – score!
L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Mechanical Eyebrow Pencil
Not sure if brow gel is right for you? No problem! This ultra-thin brow pencil makes it easy to fill in brows with a hairy effect. The waterproof formula won’t fade, and the spool allows you to comb and blend strokes for perfectly defined looks.
OUR BEST FACIAL PHARMACY FOR 2021
Want to refresh your complexion? Add these drugstore face makeup products to your collection.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Matte Powder
A natural foundation is just what you need as your face finally emerges from the protective mask. Our best drugstore foundation not only offers a natural look, it’s also lightweight, breathable to the touch, so you won’t even know you’ve applied it! The formula provides full buildable coverage that lasts all day and is resistant to heat, sweat, water and transfer. Consider this your new remedy for maintaining a healthy complexion.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer
We couldn’t recommend foundation without concealer. On days when you need a little more coverage or just need to brighten up your under eye area, this concealer will be your best friend. The full coverage, waterproof formula has a flawless matte finish – just remember, not much can be achieved!
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray And Set Make-Up
Set your makeup in place with one of our best drugstore fixative sprays. The lightweight formula is suitable for all skin types and helps maintain your look without settling into fine lines. The best part? It’s oil-free and non-comedogenic, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted shine or clogged pores.
L’Oreal Paris True Match™ Lumi Shake & Glow Dew Mist
We argue that multi-functional beauty products are a must, especially if you’re trying to save a few bucks, and this face spray is no exception. Mist can be used to prep, set and refresh makeup (really, what more could you ask for?). Formulated with soothing coconut water and brightening vitamin C, it provides healthy hydration to your skin.
