Ahhh, drugstore beauty products. Is there anything better? Some of the best mascaras, lipsticks, and even foundations that you’ll ever try can be found just a few blocks away at your nearest drugstore—and thanks to the new Walgreens-exclusive cosmetics line CYO, we've got a new surplus of super affordable quality beauty options to peruse.
With its minimalist packaging and on-trend products, CYO is comprised of more than 160 products and get this...they all cost less than eight bucks. “CYO is challenging the norms of how beauty products are used—we’re giving make-up a shake up,” Lauren Consiglio, Americas Category Director overseeing CYO Cosmetics, said in a press release. The idea being that thanks to the low price points, consumers will be encouraged to experiment with the products, which range from classic eyeliners to super pigmented shadows that can easily double as face paint, and bold lipsticks.
“This is for the new generation of beauty lovers who want to create and re-create the many versions of themselves, we’ll never say ‘do this’ or ‘look like that’, instead we’ll produce high-quality, functional products that let them experiment and have fun,” said Cosiglio.
In honor of the launch, Walgreens is having a buy two get the third free sale—yep, a good deal just got even better. Below are the Most Wanted editors' favorite picks.
