Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
A few coats of Maybelline’s iconic mascara will make your lashes look so long and luscious everyone will think they’re extensions.
Cerave Unscented Foaming Cleanser
Gentle enough for sensitive skin types, this universal cleanser wipes away makeup, dirt, and oil without stripping and drying out skin.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor
Thanks to a doe foot applicator, this liquid lipstick glides on like your favorite gloss, but without sacrificing the color payoff. The velvety texture stays put all day long without getting cakey, so we suggest stocking up on one (or two).
L'Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup
Available in 33 shades, this foundation makes finding the perfect shade in the drugstore aisles possible. Aside from coming in your ideal match, the formula melts right into skin for a natural finish.
Pantene Pro-V Dream Care Classic Clean Shampoo
Whatever your hair type, lathering up with this antioxidant-rich Pantene shampoo will give it a welcome refresh. It removes buildup, hydrates, and strengthens so strands are shiny and smooth again.
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes & Wipes
We don’t know what we love more: that these wipes remove all of our makeup in a single sweep, or their affordable price is the perfect excuse for grabbing a pack to keep in your bathroom, desk, bag, nightstand, and everywhere in-between.
Covergirl Katy Matte Lipstick
A true shine-free lip color without any dryness? We'll take every shade.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
Bare leg season is coming and this spray-on bronzer will give skin that’s been hiding all winter long a sun-kissed look. The temporary quick-dry color is non-transferable so you won’t stain your white clothes and sheets orange, and it also masks scars and discoloration.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water
There's a long list of reasons why our editors love this stuff, but the biggest selling point of Garnier's Miceller Water is that it clears skin of makeup, dirt, and oil in one wipe with no rinsing required.
Essie Nail Color In Ballet Slippers
This polish shade earned its InStyle Best Beauty Buys Hall of Fame status for being universally flattering and seasonless.
NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss
With butter in its name, you know that this gloss will go on smooth without getting sticky as it wears. Wear it alone or layer it over your favorite lip color for extra dimension.
Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub
By treating skin with Biore's exfoliating scrub, you can say goodbye to clogged pores and future breakouts.
