PSA: COVERGIRL Is Bringing Clean Beauty to Drugstores and We’re Here For It

The term “clean beauty” is often synonymous with a hefty price tag, which, if we’re being honest, makes no sense. This is why we’re over the moon that one of our go-to drugstore brands, COVERGIRL, is officially on our side. COVERGIRL has become the first big drugstore brand to produce clean beauty products at prices that won’t make you gawk—yep, we’re talking an entire collection of makeup products each under $15, plus a clean version of their best-selling Lash Blast Volume Mascara. And, peep the Leaping Bunny certification stamped on every package. How comforting is it to know that these new products are also certifiably cruelty-free?

An added bonus to this COVERGIRL clean beauty collection: All products are made from vegan ingredients. Also free of sulfates, formaldehyde, and talc, each item provides natural components that will leave your skin looking (and feeling!) refreshed. Without further ado, here’s a run-down of COVERGIRL’s newest clean beauty must-haves.
