We live for beauty products (obviously) and although we love dropping everything but the rent check on luxury lines every now and then, we love a drugstore beauty find that doesn’t deplete our wallets. Plus, with so many affordable new lip glosses, nail polishes, highlighters, and eyeshadow palettes on the market right now, you better believe we’re ready to roll up our selves and get to work trying them out. Now if we could only find more drawers to keep everything…
1. Sleek MakeUP Highlighting Palette, $15
Achieving #glowgoals couldn’t be easier with Sleek MakeUP’s new highlighting palettes that will make you a glowing godess in minutes. Available in two shade ranges: Solstice (iridescent metallics) and Cleopatra’s Kiss (golden metallics), they’re versatile enough for face or body, compact so you can stash them in any bag for on-the-go touchups, and the best part—multi-purpose. Alternate between shimmery powders and cream formulas until you’re dewy and glistening all over. Shop them here.
2. Tresemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Sprays, $5
Style without stiffness is what Tresemmé’s newly released weightless mists promises.

6. Maybelline Burgundy Bar Eye Shadow Palette, $10
Let’s face it: Reds and purples can be hard to pull off, but burgundy? Now there’s a color that comes with an army of light-to-dark tonal friends who happen to look flattering on well, everyone. Maybelline’s Burgundy Beauty Bar (that’s only been available in the UK until now) is certainly living up to it’s cult favorite reputation with 12 intensely pigmented squares that range from soft neutrals to deep wines, but the ultimate selling factor is their lasting power.

After five minutes you’ll be looking at a whole new set of strands. Shop it here.

9. Pantene Micellar Collection, $6 each
Pantene is the latest brand to jump on the micellar water beauty bandwagon, and we’re here for it. After all, micellar water offers a genius way of cleansing using oil particles to attract dirt, so it’s gentle but super effective.

Shop them here.
