Budget Beauty Buyers, Listen Up: These Are the Products to Try If You Love a Good Deal
As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
Movie tickets, your Starbucks order, guac that costs "extra" — most things you love that clock in at less than $15 can still feel like an indulgence, so why should your drugstore beauty products be an exception? If you know where to look (as in, not the toilet paper aisle at CVS, but close) you can find dozens of high-quality makeup, hair, and skincare items that belie the price point.
To make the hunt easy for you, and your wallet, we've asked our trusted team of editors to channel our inner Extreme Couponing and test the best new budget buys of the year. This list of winning products — from mascara and lipstick to scalp treatments and more — are the perfect excuse to spend your money elsewhere.
Don't forget to read up on the rest of our 2019 Power Your Pretty Awards winners – a curated list of beauty products tested by editors, chosen for YOU.
