It goes without saying that some of our favorite drugstore beauty brands outdid themselves in 2018. With inclusive launches (hello, Covergirl’s Full Spectrum line) and fun products (we’re looking at Wet n Wild’s zodiac collection), 2018 was full of good finds.
For the New Year, drugstore brands are keeping the momentum with their 2019 releases. Most of the upcoming products are innovative and much-needed. Basically, we can’t wait to get out hands on them, and luckily, some have come out a bit early (so we can already scoop them up). Gone are the days where you have to spend hundreds of dollars on beauty products to see real results. Even if splurging on beauty is within your means, it will be worth your while to take a trip to your local drugstore in 2019.
Whether you’re looking to give your hair some nourishment, or want to get a head start on your skin care glow-up, here are 29 drugstore products to put on your radar in 2019.
