Celebrities have thousands of dollars at their disposal, and they can definitely afford to splurge when it comes to purchasing makeup. But even with their generous Hollywood paychecks, many celebs prefer to buy drugstore makeup products. Their affordable and wallet-friend must-have items prove that it doesn’t take a ton of money to look like a star.
Although Rihanna has plans to dominate the beauty industry with a makeup line of her own, the singer has no problem hitting up her local drugstore to stock up on the affordable makeup products that she loves. The singer swears by CoverGirl Wetslicks Lip Gloss. The product goes on like a lip balm and adds shine while locking in moisture. As for Rihanna’s favorite color, Watermelon Splash is said to be her go-to shade.
In an interview with “Allure” magazine, Olivia Munn gave a rundown of all of her favorite beauty products. She listed expensive products, such as a Dior brow styler, but we were really caught off guard when she revealed her favorite lipstick is CoverGirl’s Outlast Lip Color in Plum Pout. This is her signature lip color, so if you want to channel your inner Olivia, head off to your nearest drugstore and pick up a few of these lipsticks for your makeup bag.
Even Beyonce hits up her local drugstore to get her hands on her favorite multi-purpose item. In an interview with “People” magazine, the Queen Bey said Aquaphor Healing Ointment was her drugstore must-have product.

Shay Mitchell’s makeup is always on point, but when she’s having a low-key day, she prefers to use drugstore products to perfect her look. Shay told “Teen Vogue” that in the morning, she only uses one product: CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara. She says she loves the product so much, she buys “10 at a time” in case it gets discontinued. The mascara is the perfect product to give her lashes length without making them look heavy and clumpy.
You wouldn’t think Kim Kardashian would be a fan of drugstore makeup, but she actually has a few drugstore brands in her makeup bag. She’s the queen of transforming her bare face into a glamorous work of art, and she does use some pretty expensive foundations, but she’s also a fan of wallet-friendly drugstore brands. The celeb shared on her website that she prefers dewy foundation because “guys are really into it.” Her favorite drugstore brand, Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation, gives her that glowy look that drives the boys wild.
