The Best New Drugstore Beauty Buys and Upcoming Products for 2021Credit : elfcosmetics / Instagram

Drugstore beauty products are everyone's guilty pleasure. They're inexpensive, they serve their purpose well, and the choices are endless. Trips to pharmacies like CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens become more fun with several passes through the beauty aisles. Covid-19 has forced many people to live on a tighter budget, but we have also come to learn how important self-care is, so drugstore products have really come to the rescue. Allure adds that drugstore brands have truly expanded in the last decade, and formulas have become much more sophisticated.

Tested and approved by Allure, Glamour, and Popsugar beauty editors, here are the latest drugstore beauty products that are already creating a lot of buzz and some that are launching next year.

Fresh Releases

CoverGirl Lash Blast Clean Volume Mascara

CoverGirl has already launched their Lash Blast Clean Volume Mascara at Target last November, and it will be making its way to other retailers in 2021. If you're planning to transition into clean and sustainable makeup next year, this mascara is a good and affordable way to start. This version of CoverGirl's beloved Lash Blast Mascara is paraben and sulfate-free and is packaged in 80 percent recycled paper. It also costs the same as the regular formula.

L'Oréal Paris Skin Paradise Tinted Moisturizer

Released just in time for winter, the L'Oréal Paris Skin Paradise Tinted Moisturizer offers lightweight coverage and the bonus of sun protection with broad spectrum SPF 19. This new formula is water-based and features skin-soothing aloe vera and witch hazel, which will be a balm to dry winter skin.

Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara

Maybelline has always been a go-to drugstore brand for mascara. Their latest offering, Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara, is no exemption. It features a new and exclusive flex tower mascara brush and is formulated with bamboo extract and fibers for long and voluminous lashes. It also comes in washable or waterproof versions.

NYX Professional Makeup Brow Glue

Keep your brow game-strong with the NYX Professional Makeup Brow Glue. The clear and non-sticky gel formula will keep your brows in place for up to 16 hours.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Ride or Die Lip Balm

According to Popsugar's Stephanie Nguyen, this lip balm has the makings of a cult favorite. This intensely hydrating lip balm is infused with jojoba oil to repair dry lips while giving it a nice sheer tint. It comes in seven juicy colors and is one hundred percent vegan and cruelty-free.

Dove Deep Moisture Moisturizing & Hand Sanitizer

Forget those gel sanitizers that smell strongly of alcohol and leaves hands dry. Dove's first-ever hand sanitizers leave hands soft and silky and smelling like baby powder.

Coming in 2021

EcoTools BioBlender Makeup Sponge

The EcoTools BioBlender Makeup Sponge will be launched in early 2021, and it's going to be groundbreaking. Debossed with the words "Plant Me," the biodegradable sponge will break down within 120 days. Once you've used it up to its full potential, just plant it in the yard, and nature will do its job.

Neutrogena Healthy Scalp Clarify & Shine Scalp Scrub With Pink Grapefruit

As dry shampoos are becoming a hair care staple, product buildup is inevitable. If you use dry shampoo often, add the Neutrogena Healthy Scalp Clarify & Shine Scalp Scrub With Pink Grapefruit to your hair care arsenal next year. If you love their Grapefruit-infused skincare line, you'll also love grapefruit on your hair.

Maui Moisture Frizz-Free + Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Mist

There's a lot of new releases in hair care next year. The beauty industry is probably making up for the loss of regular salon treatments. For dry and damaged curly hair, let the coconut and macadamia oils in the Maui Moisture Frizz-Free + Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Mist do it wonders.

L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum

For those who love heat styling, eliminate frizz, avoid breakage, and protect hair from up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit with L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum. Available in January 2021.
