Things happen. The airline lost your luggage. All your makeup melted in the backseat of your car. Someone swiped your favorite gloss and concealer. Such is life.

But have no fear. There's no need to be crybaby about it all. As much as we love all our chichi beauty products, the drugstore can actually solve whatever beauty emergency you might be dealing with.

Also... We're all for a big splurge, but the real excitement? Finding a true steal-one that really works. You don't always need to spend big bucks to get results. In fact, some of the most amazing beauty products are found right in the aisles of Duane Reade (or Walgreens, wherever your loyalty lies).

Here, we put together an essential list for your beauty records: the best drugstore beauty products, ever.
