Here are my top 15 drugstore products (in no specific order):

Monistat Chafing Gel


I know this isn’t a makeup product, but this amazing gel makes for a fantastic face primer! I use this product almost everyday to give a my skin a smooth finish, before applying my foundation. This gel is very comparable to Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation


This matte finish foundation is full coverage, even more so than many of my high end foundations. There is a wide range of colors for any skin tone, and formulas for any skin type.
