2017 has been a great year for drugstore beauty. We've seen brands partner with supermodels of the moment, launch cheaper alternatives to pricy high-end favorites, and make their way to the states from the UK and France — and that's just in the past few months alone.
Things are about to get even better now, because December marks the beginning of a brand-new season of drugstore beauty. This month, brands will roll out their shiny, new products for 2018 — and I got to test-drive a handful of them.

In the video above, I wore a full face of newly-launched drugstore makeup (think: a high-coverage cushion foundation, buzzy metallic palette, buttery highlighter, and a mattifying setting spray) throughout a 10-hour workday. I even wore them in the rain. Curious to see which ones held up? Press play to find out, then subscribe to Refinery29's YouTube channel for more videos like this one.
