Time is precious, and I do a lot to save mine. I order food delivery most nights, send my laundry out to the corner fluff and fold, and hail a cab whenever there’s a train delay. The unfortunate tradeoff is, saving time almost always means wasting money. So when I heard about the new Walmart+ membership, which makes shopping convenient and affordable, I had to join. First up on my list: stock my makeup bag—just in time for summer.
Why I Love Walmart+
With Walmart+, you get free shipping with no order minimum*, but my favorite benefit is unlimited free delivery on makeup, groceries & more from my local Walmart store. I just search for beauty products I love on the app, add them to my cart, and select the delivery window that works with my schedule when I check out. You can even get your items as soon as same-day—you know, for those trying times when you realize you’re out of glitter eyeliner the morning of a party but can’t escape Zoom meetings to run to the store.
*Excludes freight & Marketplace items.
To become a Walmart+ member, download the Walmart app and choose your membership plan: $12.95/month or $98/year. After you sign up, you can start shopping the virtual beauty aisle and get your benefits right away. Here are the five products I got from my membership that’s quickly become my new go-to.
Shop My Walmart+ Picks
Neutrogena’s Skin Enhancer is a lightweight formula with a sheer tint that pairs SPF 20 with a version of retinol that’s breathable enough to be used in the daytime.
Volumizing mascaras tend to clump lashes together, but this one has a light-as-air whipped formula and a brush that distributes it evenly from roots to ends. Plus it’s smudgeproof in humidity and doesn’t flake off by the end of the day.
Eyeshadow inspired by mint chocolate chip ice cream seems a bit random—until you see how cool the unexpected combination of soft green and metallic chocolate and taupe looks on lids. The twist-up stick (with a built-in sharpener) makes it easy to swipe on shadow wherever you are, and at only $5 each, I don’t have to justify buying every shade.
With a matte finish that doesn’t leave skin looking dry, thanks to the nourishing blend of four butters in the formula, this bronzer is the perfect cream-powder hybrid. It even has a tropical monoi scent, to remind us all of the island vacation we deserve.
This balm can be used any place that needs a little moisture and a luminous finish. I tap it across my cheekbones and brow bones for a sheer highlight and apply a thick layer to my lips as an overnight mask.
