Maybelline

file

Feels incredible (cushy, moisturizing, healing) and looks fantastic: the perfect don't-need-a-mirror tint.
file

Causes much less damage to your hair than traditional color, leaving you with shine and bounce to spare. (Plus it only takes 10 minutes, is permanent and doesn't smell of ammonia, a serious upgrade in and of itself.)


file

Rich pigments and incredible hydration—this looks and feels like lipstick that costs 10 times as much.


file

Hypoallergenic and fragrance free, this body soap works on even the most sensitive of skin types.
file

Out late last night? Look wide awake in seconds with a concealer that masks dark circles, reduces the look of puffiness and protects the sensitive undereye area with SPF 20.
file

The more you use this lip balm, the better it gets. Not only does it provide immediate relief for dry, chapped lips, but after a week you'll see that your lips feel smooth and supple.


file

A couple of swipes of this mascara and it'll seem like your lashes are growing lashes—so lush.
file

Dandruff or not, Head and Shoulders smells amazing and leaves your hair feeling really clean.


file

It's far cheaper and just as effective as any fancy dry shampoo you'll find.
file

The mascara that needs no introduction—the pink and green tube is everyone's go-to.


file

Degree Shower Clean has been our deodorant of choice for as long as we can remember.


file

Gillette razors are the best that any man—or woman—can get. It really is the closest shave by far.


file

It feels light and weightless like a powder, but blends in seamlessly with your skin like a cream to give you a glowy flush.
file

After hours of staring at a computer screen, this is the best remedy for dry eyes.
file

You can actually see the blackheads being eliminated with each use.


file

No "GTL" jokes here. There isn't a girl in our office that doesn't use this gradual self-tanner—it doesn't show up like self-tanner at all—because as the name suggests, the tint is entirely natural looking.


file

Every pro stylist's hairspray of choice.
file

Every nail kit needs this dark purple shade. It's less edgy than black, but still makes a cool statement.


file

Leave these in your top drawer for when you're feeling too lazy to wash your face at night.


file

Chapped lips don't stand a chance against Aquaphor. Use in anywhere on your body that needs a shot of extra moisture.
file

It's the non-scented, non-everything way to hydrate even the driest, most sensitive skin.
file

It's a real throwback to the '80s, but this classic shampoo is every bit as good as we remember.
file

The biggest strides in the way of volumizing shampoo were made by Pantene, plus you get that lasting clean hair scent.


file

A drugstore splurge, but it really does take care of stains and it doesn't taste as much like toothpaste, which is a good thing.


file

The most universally flattering shade of pink you'll ever wear.


file

This anti-wrinkle cream has both SPF and retinol in it. Everyone should be using both of these things every day, and this product is the answer.


file

Who didn't have a Lip Smacker collection as a kid? This Dr. Pepper flavor is too good.
file

A very high-end makeup brush at a wallet-friendly price. You'll see the difference when applying blush or bronzer—everything looks more even with the right makeup tools.


file

It's lightweight, non-greasy and every bit as effective as the fancier brands. This little bottle lasts for a long time, too.


file

A relaxing, beautifully lavender scented lotion to use at night. It helps calm fussy babies, but works equally as well for mothers (and those without children) too.


file

Inside this little tube, you'll find every possible eye wrinkle defense mechanism—even vitamin C. You barely need anything else.

There's a matching hair tie for every shade of brunette and blonde—plus, no metal means your ponytail will never snag.


Everyone loves a great beauty splurge every now and then, but these unbelievably effective all-stars that you can find at your local drugstore are equally as irresistible. Click through to shop these favorite beauty standbys.
