When I was a beauty-obsessed college student more than four years ago, I was short on time, money, and more often than not, sleep. I still wanted to look fresh-faced and as good as I could while going out with my friends, so I relied on beauty bloggers on YouTube to tell me what the best products were at the lowest possible prices.
Fast forward to adulthood and now I’m a beauty editor with a little extra spending money (but still not much time or sleep) who has tried hundreds of products. Despite having access to much more expensive options, there are some reliable drugstore items I still use many years later.
Although I’ve left many other parts of dorm life in the past (like Easy Mac), there are some products I discovered during those years I’ll never be giving up. Check them out, ahead.
