We’ve tried and tested the best drugstore skincare and makeup products so you don’t have to. Trust us: cheap makeup can get the job done just as well, if not better, than its high-end alternative.

We’ve rounded up the best drugstore makeup and skincare to stockpile in your makeup bag, purse and desk, from a $5 cult-favourite mascara that will give you mega volume to a $4 hair saviour that will extend your wash a few more days. You — and your bank account — can thank us later.
