Drugstore Products That Celebrities Swear By

We love a bargain, especially when it comes to our beauty routine. While many beauty products used by our favorite A-listers are sadly not available — or affordable — to the masses, like this 24K CryogeniC Diamond Mask (yes, it has diamonds in it!), celebrities also seem to dig a good drugstore find. We’ve rounded up the best affordable products that celebrities use, so that we, too, can give good face without spending our savings. Cara Delevingne relies on Rimmel’s Brow This Way Brow Styling Gel ($4) to tame her highly coveted arches and keep them in check.

Peter Lamas Hair Solutions Thickening Kit

I have a super oily scalp – sad, but true. Nobody’s got it all, right? I can hardly go a day without dry shampoo (my favorites being this or this).

While talking about vaginas used to be taboo, with companies like The Perfect V making and marketing products specifically for the vagina and surrounding area, we’re finally able to have the dialogue we’ve been shushed from having for too long. And, perhaps even more importantly, giving our lady parts the luxury and TLC they deserve, just as we do with our face and décolletage. Beauty Banter: What is the V?Avonda Urben: We needed a name for the area “down there” – why not the V? Simple, straightforward, and the shape of that area makes it a no-brainer.

ICYMI: There’s a new highlighter hue in town, and it’s gracing the gorgeous faces of some of our favorite people: that color is purple, and it’s super hot for fall. We can thank Rihanna for the gaining traction of this trend (although Nars and Milk have offered the shade before). Not only did she dare to wear purple as an accent color, but she’s also offering the shimmery lavender shade from Fenty Beauty. Of course, other brands have followed suit, and now it’s the must-own highlighter hue for fall.
