Brilliant beauty doesn’t need to cost you the world. This is a fact.

To prove this point, we deep-dived into the shopping baskets of 11 women to get their best supermarket beauty buys. They’re fabulous, tried and tested, all under $20, and you can pick them up during your weekly shop.

Now that’s efficiency for you.

From the brand-new lipstick range which was created to universally flatter all skin tones, to the $8.50 hydrating face mist hack that will feel like a high-end dupe, here are the ‘savey’ grocery story beauty products you need to ‘add-to-trolley’ ASAP.

Jess W

BUY THIS: Maybelline New York, Color Sensational Made For All Lipstick in Red for Me, RRP $17.95.

Attention red lipstick lovers: if you’re on the hunt for a sumptuous ‘fire engine’ red, Maybelline’s latest offering has you covered for RRP $17.95. The curvature of the bullet perfectly hugged my lips and the shade is an universally flattering, bright red and the demi-matte texture feels great on the lips.

Although the ‘Color Sensational Made For All’ range was designed to flatter every single skin tone – making it oh so wearable – this energetic shade is particularly eye-catching.

Should you purchase a lippie and think that it doesn’t suit your skin tone, Maybelline New York will even give you your money back*. You have seven days to make the claim and just need to provide proof of purchase.

Belinda S

BUY THIS: My Aura, Organic Deodorant Rose Vanilla & Jasmine, $9.00.

This is the only deodorant that works for me and I have tried them all including the clinical versions! The one tip I will add is to make sure you rub the product in once applied and it should last all day. So excited to find a natural and organic deodorant which actually does what it's supposed to do!

BUY THIS: Sanofi, Glycerine, $8.50.

Add supermarket Glycerin to a spritz bottle with water. It’s a dupe for high-end, finishing sprays as it takes the main hydrating ingredient they use, without the fragrance. It works just as well!

Jess S

BUY THIS: Sukin, Cream Cleanser, $10.99.

I've recently started using Sukin's cream cleanser because I was looking for something more gently on my skin. It smells really great and it's definitely making a difference to my sensitive/dry skin.

BUY THIS: MCoBeauty, Facial & Brow Razor Super Smooth, $10.

The facial razor was a game changer! I’ve seen the girls on You Beauty talking about facial razors for quite some time and as someone who use to bleach the hairs on my face, I knew I had to give it a go!

I was so disgusted - and super excited - with all the 'peach fuzz' and dead skin coming off my face, but it's made my skin feel so fresh and soft that I was positively glowing this morning.

BUY THIS: Sudocrem, Nappy Cream Healing, $9.

I’ve tried so many things, but nothing leaves my face more hydrated than this weekly mask of Sudocrem. I’ve been addicted to it ever since I first bought it for my baby’s eczema a decade ago. It’s so soothing. Not kidding.

Gemma

BUY THIS: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Clear Face Sunscreen Liquid-lotion SPF 30, $17.00.

This is my favourite face sunscreen of all time, and I have tried a heap of them. It’s so light that it just feels like moisturiser and it doesn’t have an overpowering sunscreen smell. I have sensitive skin, and can be prone to breakouts but I have never had an issue with this product and it sits perfectly under makeup.

Paige

BUY THIS: Maybelline New York, Master Precise Liquid Liner in Black, RRP $16.95.

It’s been my go to for winged eyeliner for around sevenish years. I’ve tried others and other types of liner like gel with a brush, and nothing has been as easy, or has compared to using this. I find the soft fine point tip really glides on easily and smoothly and it lasts all day and night!

Alexandra

BUY THIS: Pantene Pro-V, 3 Minute Miracle Intensive Treatment Program, $8.39 for 3.

As someone with hard to manage, thick, frizzy, curly hair, this product has made my life a million times easier. You leave it in your hair for three minutes in the shower, then wash it out, and it means when I blowdry and straighten my hair it looks a normal level of smooth rather than frizzing out everywhere!
