10 best drugstore makeup products in India ( High end dupes)

Hey beauties! In this post I’ll be talking about the 10 best drugstore makeup products in India that are easily available. These makeup products are drugstore and are quite cheap but they are so good in quality that people all over the world consider them the perfect dupes of high end beauty and makeup products. I only buy a high end foundation because my skin is extremely sensitive but for all the other makeup products, I believe in paying less and the drugstore products have so much quality these days and we can’t doubt them. The best part about drugstore products is that their quality is constantly improving and now you can even buy the foundations without thinking much.

I use all these products and I am huge makeup freak so when it comes to makeup, I don’t settle for less and I have made a list of these 10 best drugstore makeup products in India that are easily available. Let’s have a look.

10 best drugstore makeup products in India.

1: Incolor Matte me Ultra Smooth matte lip cream: Rs 292.incolormattemelipstick I am obsessed with lip creams and that’s the only stuff I apply on my lips. If you are on a budget and and you are looking for an everyday nude shade, this is made for you. It’s a subtle nude light mocha shade with warm undertones. It is an everyday shade and goes beautifully with the Indian skin tone.



Why I love these lip creams:



  • Pocket friendly, low price.
  • Variety of colors available.
  • Smooth creamy texture.
  • Matte finish.
  • Easily application.
  • Lasts for good 5 hours.

Tip: You have to be little careful if you have dry lips as it can be little drying on your lips just like any other NUDE lip cream and I always apply a good non sticky lip balm to moisturize my lips and provide a nice coating as well. You must apply a little bit of balm before applying the lip cream and it is not going to dry your lips.

2: Maybelline cheeky glow blush creamy cinnamon: Rs 224

If you want to start with the lipsticks, you must buy a lip crayon because of the easy applications just two swipes and you are done. It’s very difficult to search for a perfect pink color.
