Best Drugstore Makeup on Amazon!

Did you know that you can get a huge variety of drugstore makeup on Amazon?!

I don’t know about you, but I love shopping online for makeup because that’s one less reason I have to leave the house LOL. I’m a total homebody.

Especially if it’s products that you already know, love, and you just need to replenish your supply, why not buy it online and have it arrive on your doorstep?!

Up until fairly recently, I defaulted to Ulta to buy drugstore makeup online because I had no idea Amazon has such an amazing selection of makeup. My life has been changed.

Not only is the selection amazing, much of the time, it’s cheaper! So, now I always compare the prices on Amazon before purchasing makeup anywhere else.

The products in this post are, at the time of writing, the best Amazon drugstore makeup buys because I have not found them cheaper anywhere else!

The Amazon Prime free shipping really helps as well! I’m totally that person that will not buy something online just because I have to pay for shipping LOL.

With all of the shopping I do on Amazon, the Amazon Prime membership totally pays for itself just in the shipping cost savings.

In addition to the free shipping, Amazon Prime members get 10% off on groceries at Whole Foods! Whole Foods is right down the street from me, so you know I take advantage of that discount!

There are tons of other perks and discounts associated with an Amazon Prime membership, but all of which are unrelated to what this post is intended to cover LOL.

So, before this turns into a post about reasons I love Amazon Prime, I’m going to stop here.

But, if you don’t have an Amazon Prime membership yet, you should totally try out the free 30-day trial right now.

You won’t regret it. But, if you do, no worries! You can cancel anytime.

Alright, let’s get onto the makeup! Because I know that’s what you’re really here for.

Best Drugstore Makeup to buy on Amazon


NYX – Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

This primer is perfect for smoothing your skin to create a flawless canvas for your foundation. It feels super silky to the touch and is a total dupe for the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer!

Milani – Prime Perfection Hydrating + Pore-Minimizing Face Primer

This primer is a great hydrating primer that softens the look of fine lines and pores while creating a healthy glow. It is an oil-free primer that feels super lightweight under foundation.

Both primers also seen in: Ultimate Drugstore Makeup Kit for Beginners


L’Oreal – Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation

This is a very new foundation that I have absolutely been loving recently! It has the most beautiful natural fresh finish and it provides medium coverage. It feels great on the skin and is super comfortable to wear all day.

It’s a great foundation for dry skin, as seen in: Top 10 Drugstore Foundations for Dry Skin

Maybelline – SuperStay Full Coverage Foundation,

This foundation is totally one of the best full-coverage foundations at the drugstore. Even though I have kind of dry skin and this foundation is a little too matte for me, I love it when I want a full-coverage, full-glam, flawless look.

You’d love it if you have oily skin, as I mentioned in: Top 10 Drugstore Foundations for Oily Skin

Both foundations are featured in: The 25 Best Drugstore Foundations in 2019


Maybelline – SuperStay Better Skin Concealer

This concealer is totally one of my holy grail concealers that I use every single day. It’s super creamy, easy to blend out, provides medium-full coverage, and is great for sensitive skin. This concealer doubles as my eyeshadow primer every day.

NYX – HD Studio Photo Concealer

This is another great medium-full coverage concealer that blends out beautifully without creasing, especially under the eyes. It does oxidize a tad, so I would go for a shade lighter than you normally would. Also, there are green and purple shades if you want to color correct!


Maybelline – Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder Foundation

Perfect for throwing in your purse for a midday touchup or for a light coverage foundation on “no makeup” days. I will often just brush this powder all over my face when I’m going to run a quick errand but I still want a smidge of coverage.

Essence – Brighten Up! Banana Powder

This banana powder oddly has a really low rating on Amazon, but after looking at the reviews, almost every single reviewer received a broken product. That’s totally misleading because this banana powder is great!

I love to use it to brighten up under my eyes and to really cut my nose contour. It’s the perfect banana shade that isn’t too yellow.

Maybelline – Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder

GUYS. I cannot stop raving about this powder. Holy grail for sure and I use it every single day to set my under-eye area and bake under my contour.

It’s such a finely milled, fluffy powder that creates a flawless smooth finish. Totally a dupe for the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting powder, except it comes in shades, but at a small fraction of the cost!

Coty – Airspun Loose Face Powder

If you’re looking for both quality and quantity (the container is massive), this powder is the way to go. It’s an overall great setting powder that totally gets the job done and creates a beautiful matte finish. It can be drying if you have dry skin, however. Also, the scent is pretty strong. Some people love the scent though!

Physicians Formula – Murumuru Butter Bronzer

This was the first ever bronzer I tried and it’s still one of my favorites! A holy grail for sure. I call it a “fool-proof” bronzer because it’s so easy to blend out and it isn’t too pigmented that you’ll apply too much of it in one go. The bonus is that it smells like coconuts and it’s heavenly.

Milani – Baked Bronzer

Since the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer is a matte bronzer, I thought I’d give you a little more glowy option! The Milani Baked Bronzers have a slightly shimmery finish which is perfect for a sun-kissed glow.



Milani – Baked Blush

I literally cannot put this blush down. My favorite shade is Luminoso and even with all of the blushes I own, this blush is one of the few that I constantly gravitate to. It is the perfect pinky peach shade that has just the right amount of shimmer to give you a subtle glow.

e.l.f. – Powder Blush Palette

If you’re looking for some bang for your buck, this e.l.f. Blush Palette is totally the way to go! You get 4 shades for $6 – can’t go wrong with that! The quality is great, all of the shades are beautiful and easy to blend out. AND the packaging is so sturdy and comes with a built-in mirror!



Essence – Pure Nude Highlighter

This is the perfect highlighter if you’re looking for a subtle highlighter and I would totally recommend it to anyone that’s a beginner with highlighting. It gives you a really beautiful glowy sheen instead of an in-your-face highlight.

I actually use it as a finishing powder all over my face because I’m that extra LOL.

Maybelline – MasterChrome Highlighter

Hands-down, this is one of the best blinding highlighters you can get at the drugstore. The formula is silky smooth and it creates the most beautiful wet-looking, metallic highlight.

I have 3 shades: Molten Gold, Molten Rose Gold, and the NikkieTutorials collab shade (which is an Ulta exclusive, so unfortunately not available on Amazon). And each of them are gorgeous – it just depends on the mood I’m in when choosing between them.

Wet n Wild – MegaGlo Highlighting Powder

The MegaGlo highlighters have a slightly more powdery formula than the MasterChrome highlighters, but they are just as blinding. The shade Precious Petals was the first ever drugstore highlighter I tried, and it’s still one of my favorites. I also really love the shade Golden Flower Crown.

NYX – Micro Brow Pencil

Total dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and a much cheaper price. It has a precise tip that makes it easy to draw hair-like strokes and it applies super smoothly without clumping up your brow hairs.

Also seen in: Ultimate Drugstore Makeup Starter Kit for Beginners

Maybelline – Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil

This is maybe a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer, as it also has a thick tip, but the tip is slightly thicker than the Brow Definer. It has more of a waxy formula, so if you have a lot of brow hairs, it’ll help keep them in place.


Maybelline – Soda Pop Eyeshadow Palette

The color scheme of this palette is so perfect, in my opinion. It has enough neutrals for an everyday look, but has a few bright shades for when you want to add a pop of color. It includes both matte and shimmer shades, which makes it a great one-stop palette.


NYX – Epic Ink Liner

This liner is highly regarded in the beauty world as one of the best liquid liner pens out there. It features a super precise brush tip that makes it easy to maneuver across your lash line. And the color is very pigmented that lasts all day.

L’Oreal – Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mascara. It’s such a classic mascara that’s been around for ages, but it’s still one of the best. It lengthens, separates, adds volume, and it doesn’t flake off during the day. Basically everything you could ask for in a mascara!

Also seen in: Best of Drugstore Makeup – 2018 Favorites

L’Oreal – Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

This mascara is one of the more recent additions to L’Oreal’s Voluminous line and it blew the beauty industry away! It’s pretty much everything the classic voluminous mascara is, plus more volume! It’s also totally a dupe for the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara and I actually like the L’Oreal version better!

Setting Spray:

NYX – Matte Finish Setting Spray

Setting your makeup in place is a total must to extend the wear of your makeup and the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray does that perfectly! It’s especially great if you have oily skin as it helps to keep you looking matte longer.


Maybelline – Color Sensational Lipstick

You really can’t go wrong with any of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks. They all have amazing pigment, apply easily, never dry out your lips, and don’t bleed into your fine lines.

Isn’t it amazing how much makeup is available on Amazon? Up until recently, I honestly never thought to look on Amazon for makeup!

Since I already buy things on Amazon, why not buy my makeup there too, right? And the bonus is that so many of their drugstore makeup products are cheaper than anywhere else it’s sold.

And don’t forget to sign up for Amazon Prime if you aren’t already a member! The free shipping just makes everything better.

And that’s it for this post on the best drugstore makeup on Amazon! There’s honestly so much more that I could’ve added to this list, but then we’d be here forever!

Thanks for reading and until next time. <3
