Drug store cosmetic brands make beauty products like mascara, lipstick and nail polish affordable for those of us who prefer to not spend half of our paychecks on makeup. Some brands are better than others but these best affordable cosmetics brands stand above and beyond the rest while saving you a few bucks in the process.

Like all things, sometimes just because something is more expensive does not mean that the quality is better. This goes for cosmetics, but is also true that sometimes paying less is not worth getting an inferior product. Because of all of this, it's often a good idea to perform some trial and error with the products.

Company A may sell absolutely killer nail polish, but their foundation just doesn't cut it. Company B has mineral foundation you cannot live without, but their lipstick leaves a lot to be desired. Nothing says you must stick with one cosmetics brand for everything. Mix and match your eye shadows, mascaras and blush to find a combination perfect for you.

We've all made regretful cosmetics purchases, but with these affordable cosmetics brands, should you run into a dud, the hurt will be less for your wallet compared to throwing away pricey department store makeup. So go ahead and experiment to your heart's content, with these cosmetics as inexpensive as a dollar each, you can stock your cosmetics case without busting the bank.

What are cheap makeup brands? The items on this list certainly are affordable so make a cost efficient decision based on here.
