  • 1. NYX Matte Lipsticks: The super-pigmented shades range from everyday neutrals to not-subtle-at-all brights. They have a creamy application and — unlike most mattes — won't dry out your lips.

  • 2. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner: Glides on smoothly, stays put all day, and the easy twist-up packaging lets you ditch the sharpener.

  • 4. Blistex Lip Medex: This tingly balm is a serious, no-frills hydrator for chapped lips. (Though to some, the menthol scent might be off-putting.)

  • 5. Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover: Three cheers for any product that a) easily removes eye makeup in a single swipe, b) doesn't feel oily and greasy afterward, and c) doesn't eventually dry out your skin. Three options under $8 : liquid, lotion or wipes.

  • 7. Revlon “Just Bitten” Lip Stain:  It goes on almost sheer — so you can apply on the go and not worry about the precision that usually comes along with pencil products. But true to the stain in its name, colors are buildable and they stay on for hours.

  • 8. Maybelline Mascara: You can't wrong with either of these: Maybelline Great Lash has been around forever, and for good reason and my absolute favourite for their precision brushes! Similarly, Full 'n Soft has a legion of fans, like Lauren Conrad, who swear by the stuff.

  • 9. Garnier BB Cream: It has a built-in SPF for everyday wear, blends easily, and isn't drying — although coverage leans more toward the sheer side.

  • 12. Wet ‘n’ Wild Mega Last Lip Color: These $2 long-wearing mattes come in several shades that mirror high-end versions, like Stoplight Red, which is a ringer for MAC's Ruby Woo. Find the longer list of dupes here - http://lipstickdupe.com/13-wet-n-wild-mega-matte-lipstick-dupes/

  • 13. Purpose Cleansing Wash & Moisturizer: 
A lightweight, hypoallergenic duo that's gentle enough to use daily, even for those with sensitive skin.

  • 14. e.l.f. High Definition Powder: The loose, lightweight finishing powder goes on translucent, and reviewers dub it as a worthy dupe of Makeup Forever's Microfinish Powder — at a fraction of the cost.

  • 15. NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder: 
Everything you need for perfectly set brows: two brushes (angled and spoolie), clear wax, and coordinating brow powders.

  • 16. Batiste Dry Shampoo: Dry shampoo is already a godsend. But when it comes in different scents and colors (so that you're not frantically combing out every last bit of white), it's even better.

  • 17. Monistat Chafing Relief Powder Gel (as a Primer): Chafing gel as a primer might sound bizarre, but it works. Bloggers vouch for Monistat's powder gel as fully comparable to Smashbox's Photo Finish primer — for much, much cheaper.

  • 18. Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer: A solid 2-in-1 concealer and highlighter for the undereye area — with the slight downside being the built-in applicator brush, which tends to sop up product.

  • 19. Sinful Colors Nail Polishes: Essie and O.P.I. are already prime drugstore buys, but the $8 bottles can add up quickly. Sinful Colors retails for closer to $2, has similar wear, and comes in a wide range of colors.

  • Some MakeupAlley reviewers say that consistency can vary, so for best results, layer up and finish with topcoat.

  • 22. Tweezerman Tweezers: Plain and simple: These are the best tweezers out there. (Their secret: a super-sharp slant that lets you grab onto even the tiniest of hairs.) The full-size version usually tops $20 at Sephora, but the mini pair is a few bucks cheaper and works just as well.
