Products from Sephora's own makeup line to try before committing to other pricey brand names

Sephora considers its house line, Sephora Collection, the intro brand to all of the others they carry. Due to its modest price point, it is often the gateway drug that leads shoppers to the Dior and the NARS. If you’re looking for quality cosmetics, the Sephora Collection will be your most affordable bet in the aisles there. Don’t be mistaken though; these budget-friendly picks are just as great of quality, if not better than some of their pricier counterparts.

1. Eyeliner

These Contour 12hr Wear eye pencils are nearly identical to Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils. They are soft and creamy to apply and smudge out and have great staying power. One of my favorite shades is Tiramisu. (Sephora, $10)

2. Makeup remover

Sephora sells tons of their Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover every day with good reason. Gentle but effective, safe for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive eyes, it removes even the toughest of waterproof eye makeup. For something you go through quickly and use every day, no need to spend more! (Sephora, $11)

I love this rich night cream for packing great anti-aging ingredients into a budget-friendly product. It hydrates great and contains Sephora’s proprietary HydroSenn + and rice nutripeptides. (Sephora, $30)

5. Cream lip stain

These have been around since before the matte and liquid lipstick trends took over and have stood the test of time. They apply smoothly, have rich pigments and the wear time is great. Best of all, they have no drying feeling or look. Infinite Rose is one of my favorite nude shades. (Sephora, $14)

6. Concealer

This is a fantastic dupe for NARS Albatross highlighter. It applies even more smoothly and is much kinder to your wallet. Because it’s a baked product, a little bit goes a long way. (Sephora, $14)

8. Lip balm
