We know when it comes to celebrity glam, money ain't a thing. Think about it — Kim Kardashian spends almost $2K to maintain her daily beauty routine! That's something us regular smegular people can definitely not afford!
But that doesn't mean some of your faves aren't humble AF. We discovered some celebs that have spilled that they too can't help but love a bargain — especially from their local drugstore. Here's a rundown of what Zendaya, Lupita, Chrissy Teigen and more are copping for the low, low.
The Black Panther star swears by avocado oil for her skin. We mean sis is always glowing, so it's definitely true. She told InStyle, "This is what I use to wash off my makeup. It's gentle and natural, and my skin tends to be pretty dry, so I need the extra oil.”

This CoverGirl told The Cut in order to keep her edges laid for the gawds, "a good edge control is really important, and then a headscarf at night. So I always keep some Cantu edge control around and I’ll use a toothbrush and smooth down my edges."
To moisturize the skin, Zoe Saldana loves to use Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. She tells Refinery29, "My skin’s not very sensitive, but because I travel so much, it sometimes reacts to the change in environments." We hear ya sis must keep that skin glowing.
Going to bed with makeup on is a major no-no, but we get it — you're tired. Chrissy admitted to Refinery29 that "I never ever in my life have washed my face at nighttime." Instead of traditional cleansing, she loves to use these $5 wipes to remove her full face beat — and clean her pores.
The Grown-ish TV star always has her edges laid and curls poppin'. She told Byrdie, "EcoStyler is a $3 gel that I swear by because it’s not always about the most expensive product, but the most efficient."

On the weekends, masking is literally life. Zendaya loves the brand, Yes To Tomatoes to maintain clear skin. She always has a quick paper mask in her purse in case she needs it on the go. The actress says on her website and app, "If my skin is trippin' and I have a few zits, I'll use one that fights acne."
Seriously, Young M.A has the most simplest beauty routine we've ever heard of! She only uses two products! Her fave is GNC's Aloe Vera cream because, "Aloe is supposed to be good for you. It's a good dry cream that moisturizes your face, but doesn't leave it oily," the rapper told Glamour.
Some may think because we have melanin this means no sunscreen necessary. Err, lies! Laverne Cox told InStyle this non-greasy face and body sunscreen is a must for everyday use to protect your skin daily.
Yoncé once told Allure, "I wear it with my lipstick. 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!"

Khloe Kardashian revealed on her app that she uses a drugstore highlighter that is actually bomb AF. Her makeup artist, Joyce Bonelli, says a quick makeup tip is that "your highlighter should be a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, and [your] bronzer a shade darker."
We know Kim K is always showing off her expensive beauty routine via social media. But she showed her followers that these affordable double-duty facial towelettes are worth every penny. She captioned her snap, "But 1st I scrub with these wipes! #obsessed."
