Byrdie's 2014 Drugstore Beauty Awards

Navigating a drugstore makeup aisle can be as daunting a task as trying to interpret our feelings after watching Interstellar. There are hundreds of makeup options to choose from and there's really no try-before-you-buy option. This is problematic, because for the $5 on a possibly unflattering lipstick, you could have had a delicious almond-milk-peppermint-mocha-with-an-extra-shot-of-espresso instead (our #notbasic holiday drink order of choic). 

So, we did the dirty work for you, and searched high and low for the best beauty products that prove you don't need to spend a lot of cash to get amazing results. These drugstore beauty buys have our seal of approval (and, in case you haven't noticed, we're pretty picky when it comes to our makeup).
