Our Costco shopping list typically looks a little like this. Toothpaste. Check. Enough toilet paper to last us the year. Check. Cheez-Its. Double-check. But, it's also making its way up the ranks to becoming our new budget-beauty destination. And not just for liter-sized shampoo -- though we love that too -- we're talking discounted designer makeup, skincare, and hot tools, people.

The retailer recently launched a project called Beauty's Most Wanted, in which they teamed up with beauty professionals, like hairstylist Orlando Pita and manicurist Jenna Hipp, to create products for the Costco consumer.

The catch? You have to sign up for a Costco membership to score these sweet deals. But, we think that's a small price to pay for all the Benjamins you'll be saving in the long run. Click through to check out some of the buys we can't wait to snag and get ready to mix beauty with your bulk purchases.

1
Mo' conditioner, mo' moisture. Save a couple of dollars by stocking up on this 40 oz Pantene conditioner that will quench your sun-exposed strands this season. (At this price, you can work a handful through your hair for an overnight leave-in treatment, too.) Pantene Advanced Care Conditioner, $7.49, available at Costco
2
It's a no-brainer that SPF is absolutely necessary in the summertime, but the idea of piling on foundation and sunscreen makes us cringe. This CC Cream from Supergoop! takes care of that issue, providing both tinted coverage and protection in one lightweight formula. Supergoop! CC Cream Daily Correct Broad Spectrum SPF 35 Sunscreen, $22.99, available at Costco.

If you haven't heard about this all-purpose skin cream, it's time to get savvy. With natural ingredients like olive oil, beeswax, and propolis, this coveted jar is loved by celebrities, makeup artists, and apparently Cleopatra (the formula is allegedly based on a cream found in Egyptian tombs). Use it on your face, cuticles, elbows, and anywhere that needs a kick of moisture — it's also safe to use on sensitive baby skin. Egyptian Magic Natural All Purpose Skin Cream, $39.99, available at Costco.

Who doesn't love argan oil? The do-everything product has a multitude of benefits, which include being a real hair savior. This particular one, from celebrity hairstylist Orlando Pita, is formulated to help tame frizzy hair and add moisture to dry locks — things most of us suffer from come summer. And, in proper Costco fashion, you can get more for your money by picking up a set for less than $15. Orlando Pita Argan Oil, $14.99, available at Costco.

Celebrity stylist Jenna Hipp is known around the industry for her green products. After experiencing negative side effects from nail polish fumes, she set out on a mission to create a safe, but stylish lacquer product. This eight-piece collection has a color for every mood — and lets you pamper yourself while feeling good about it. Jenna Hipp New Candies 8-pc Mini Nail Polish Set, $9.99, available at Costco.
6
Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff's shadow palette is on Costco's beauty most-wanted list for a reason. It comes with a wide range of luxurious, highly pigmented shadows that will seamlessly take you from a day in the office to a night out on the town. Pati Dubroff Perfect Palette Neutral Eyeshadow, $14.97, available at Costco.
