Our Favorite Drugstore Alternatives for High-End Makeup

Don't get us wrong—we love luxe beauty products just as much as the next beauty junkie, but sometimes spending a hefty chunk of change on foundation, lipstick, and mascara isn't exactly the most financially responsible decision (especially when the rent check is due). As a result, we've learned to cut corners (in terms of cost—definitely not quality). Strolling through the aisles of the drugstore and testing out numerous products, we've stumbled upon some items that serve as great replacements for our beloved luxe brands. That is until payday comes around again. Check out some of our favorite drugstore products that behave like department-store beauty buys!
