The best drugstore beauty buys to stock up on for spring
Spring is finally here, which means great things for beauty lovers. Most notably, it means you can finally retire the thick moisturizers and medicated lip balms that kept your skin from falling off all winter, and instead reach for, oh, you know, eyeshadows that provide a pop of color, iridescent highlighters, and bright lipsticks.
Of course, there’s still plenty of great skin care and hair care to make sure you’re moisturized from head to toe, all year long. Below, we’ve rounded up the best drugstore beauty buys that have recently launched. And the best part is that everything we’ve listed here is under $20, so you can stock up on different shades, scents, and more.
