At Refinery29 Australia, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but we may earn commission or other compensation from the links on this page.
For a long time, it seemed like indulging in all the latest beauty trends and powerful skincare actives was only for those with bottomless pockets. But in recent years, drugstore brands have stepped up their game, giving some of our favourite luxury brands a run for their money.
Step inside any Chemist Warehouse or Priceline and you'll see, if you can get over shopping for your concealer in the same place as stool softeners, that your options are limitless. From high-end foundations to sell-out mascaras and beyond, there's no reason you can't save a few dollars on your next shopping trip.
Ahead, we round up our favourite affordable beauty brands you can shop at your local chemist.
