Surprise: These Walmart Makeup Products Have Rave Reviews
We get it—Walmart isn't exactly the first store that comes to mind when you're noodling over where to buy beauty products. For starters, it's not here in Australia. It's also not nearly as glossy as Sephora or Mecca. But stay with us on this one: In addition to fan-favourite drugstore brands, Walmart is known for its honest customer reviews. It's pretty much like the U.S. version of K-Mart, and if we can pick up a hot tip or two for our own drugstore beauty shopping needs, we're going to do it. Below, we rounded up the makeup products with the most stars and stamps of Walmart consumer approval (that you can still pick up here, in Australia).
Burt's Bees is a connoisseur of lip hydration, so it's no surprise the brand soars at colour lip products too. Its tinted lip shimmer is such a hit that each shade has over a thousand reviews on Walmart's site. One hundred percent natural, this sheer, buildable lip tint glides on seamlessly while leaving behind a faint but not overtly glossy sheen.
Over 3000 customers label this de-puffing concealer as a five-star product. It's got a metal cooling tip to help decompress, coupled with cucumber and jojoba seed oil–infused concealer to hydrate while it brightens. Instructions say to massage the metal component across the under-eyes for 30 seconds for maximum results.
For just $14, this fine-tipped marker allows you to draw a precise tight line against your lashes for simple definition or a crisp cat-eye—with a waterproof formula to boot.
Twenty-four hours of glowing coverage sounds like a far-off fantasy, but with this medium-coverage, radiant foundation can take you from the office to happy hour to dancing to wherever the early morning hours bring you.
Our lashes grow in layers, and this mascara caters to our rows of flutters with its 10-layer wand. Its curvature helps fan out lashes, lifting and lengthening with every pass.
Over 1000 customers agree that this brush is best in class. Its soft synthetic bristles deliver airbrushed results—users cite it has having similar results as high-end brushes, without the shedding of most inexpensive brands.
Even the most blush-cautious users can aptly apply this cream-to-powder formula without fault. It's sheer and super blendable for a just-pinched flush of colour.
How's this for a rave review? One user writes that this foundation makes it look like her skin was "painted by angels." It expertly buffs into skin, hiding discolouration and smoothing the surface without looking matte or cakey. It's more like a flawless "second skin."
Creamy matte liquid lippies aren't going anywhere, so if you still haven't jumped on the bandwagon, try this cult-loved $15 variation. Less is more with this formula—just a little bit provides huge colour payoff and long-lasting moveable coverage sans creasing.
