Celebrities can get their hands on practically any beauty product under the sun, from skincare made with scorpion venom to a 24-karat gold lip treatment.

But despite the many treatments they’ve tried, even A-listers can’t resist the draw of something a little easier on the wallet.

Drugstore finds have popped up in more places than you’d think, from Kim Kardashian’s beauty bag to Bethenny Frankel’s famed TikTok tests.

Read on to shop a selection of top under-$25 beauty products, including everything from the salve Beyoncé swears by to Martha Stewart’s glow-giving lotion.

When it comes to makeup sponges, this one just might be Hollywood’s main squeeze. Meghan Markle’s “Suits” makeup artist, Lydia Sellers, once told Today it’s the “perfect tool to sheer out foundation,” while Kylie Richards called it an “absolute game changer” in an interview with Page Six Style. 

“I say this all the time, but I DO NOT KNOW what we did before the Beautyblender,” the Bravoleb raved. “This has completely changed the makeup game for the better. It’s perfect for blending concealer, foundation and even some of those pesky mistakes — but most importantly, it keeps my hands clean from all the products I’m using.”


A pink lipstick
Ulta

While self-proclaimed “accidental beauty influencer” Bethenny Frankel has reviewed a bevy of beauty products, she ranked this lipstick among ones she’s “stayed loyal to” over the course of her testing.

“They’re wonderful … they’re creamy, they’re pretty,” she said of the under-$15 buy in an Instagram video. “They’re as good as expensive, like not even a discussion.”


A gold and black mascara tube
L’Oréal

From runway models to reality stars, Hollywood is hooked on this volumizing formula. Kim Kardashian once name-dropped it on her now-defunct blog, per Bravo, while Brooklyn Decker told Page Six Style, “I’m a L’Oréal Voluminous mascara girl for life. I can’t be convinced otherwise.”

Hollywood is hardly sleeping on this Laneige sleeping mask. The Korean skincare and makeup brand’s balm is beloved by plenty of superstars — including Kendall Jenner, Kate Hudson, Brooke Shields and Kaia Gerber.

“It’s really shiny and pretty when you put it on,” Jenner once told British Vogue of the hydrating potion, which she doesn’t just save for nighttime. “I love having this on me just to put a little shine on.”

Wondering what “good things” Martha Stewart keeps in her beauty bag? While she’s used plenty of products from pricier brands like Clé de Peau Beauté, her history-making Sports Illustrated cover look included this under-$20 drugstore find.

“I use it every day on her,” her makeup artist Daisy Foye told People. “I go through a tube every week. It’s how she gets that dewy look, like she just got a facial. I’m obsessed with it.”

Essie

Essie’s had more than just a brush with fame over the years. After all, when it comes to picking polish, countless stars are brushing on shades from the drugstore brand — including this color, a reported favorite of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s.


Smith's rose salve
Sephora

When it comes to under-$10 beauty finds, this salve is on fire. Alicia Keys and Beyoncé are both fans of the moisturizing formula, which the latter singer once told Allure she uses for “everything.” 

“I wear it with my lipstick,” she explained in 2011. “I did this trick last summer, when I was on vacation: I used it to prime my lashes before curling. It was like a natural mascara. It made the lashes hold the curl and look shiny. I use it for everything!”


A sponge concealer

Bethenny Frankel doesn’t conceal her feelings about her favorite (and least favorite) beauty products, and this concealer’s no exception.

“It’s really good,” she said in a video listing products still in the “very coveted real estate” of her beauty collection.

It just might be harder to name an A-lister who’s not a fan of this famed brow brand. After all, the label’s 25th anniversary party drew a crowd including Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and longtime client Oprah Winfrey — who even celebrated her 68th birthday at the beauty bash.

Kendall Jenner, meanwhile, prefers the brand’s Cicalfate Restorative Lip Cream ($18), as she once told Allure.
