It’s no secret that here at HB HQ we’re die-hard Beyoncé fans – her songs are literally playing on our office speakers 24/7. Her flawless legs even inspired one of our latest products, N.Y.M.P.H., Not Your Mama’s Pantyhose! So, as you can imagine, we looooove hearing about Beyonce’s go-to makeup products, especially when they’re drugstore…

Yup, you read that right, Queen Bee relies on drugstore makeup even when she’s on-stage at Coachella, aka Beychella. In an interview with Refinery 29, her long-standing makeup artist Sir John revealed that to create her iconic 90s vibe, he used not one but two drugstore products. The first was the L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara, $10, which has been one of Beyoncé’s faves for years (see our full review here), and the second was L’Oréal’s Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick, $10.

The liquid lipstick has a matte finish and is available in six chocolatey shades that range from warm browns to deep berry hues, all of which have a 90s throwback feel. As you’d expect, to keep up with Beyoncé’s two-hour performance, the liquid lipstick is super long-wearing; “It’s basically like keeping your makeup on through two hours of cardio,” Sir John said.

The formula is lightweight but also super pigmented, so it’s really comfortable to wear and doesn’t leave your lips feeling dry like other matte lipsticks can. We love the heart-shaped applicator, which makes shaping the lips and adding dimension without using a lip pencil super easy. If you’re struggling to choose a shade, L’Oreal has a virtual shade matching experience so you can upload a selfie and experiment with the different colors.

Shop it here, $10.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen Homecoming (the Netflix documentary on her performance), cancel whatever plans you have tonight and watch it… STAT. It’s two hours of uninterrupted, Sasha Fierce PERFECTION.
