Affordable Makeup Brands You Didn’t Know About!

dimanche 19 juillet 2015
For all the beauty addicts, here is a list of 10 affordable makeup brands you most likely didn’t know existed (or didn’t know just how awesome they really were!)

1/ NYX


NYX is one of those brands that I always saw at CVS or Walgreens but never actually paid attention to…. until now! Pinterest is full of gorgeous makeup looks created with NYX products. I am expecially obsessed with their matte lipsticks and lip creams. NYX offers the best quality of cosmetics at attractive prices (about $5 for a lipstick or eyeshadow). The brand is known for their ultramodern and stylish packaging, fused with the huge selection of highly pigmented colors.

2/ E.L.F Cosmetics


A lot of us beauty addicts are already familiar with e.l.f. Cosmetics, but the brand deserves a spot on any affordable makeup list. e.l.f. products are so inexpensive that you can order 20+ items for under $30. Virtually everything is under $3, and they constantly run sales and promo codes The selection of products is huge, and there are a ton of options to experiment with new colors without breaking the bank! A couple of our favorite e.l.f items include: the glitter primermineral eyeshadows(especially the shimmery colors), single brushes, the lip stain , and a good basic palette to carry around in your purse or take with you when you travel (either the e.l.f. Studio Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette or the e.l.f. Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette)





3/ Coastal Scents

Coastal Scents is committed to providing innovative and stylish, cruelty-free cosmetics, at very affordable prices. Their concept of buying individual “hot pots” to build your own palette is really cool! Most of us are sometimes hesitant to buy a large eyeshadow palette because we are afraid that a lot of the “brights” might not get used very often, and this is a great solution. Each eyeshadow pot is sold for $1.95 , which makes for a very affordable palette. They also have a full section of Natural Products, and sell ingredients to make your own makeup/bath fizzies.


4/ Obssessive Compulsif Cosmetics

Sold at SephoraOCC is famous for Lip Tar, a high-pigment liquid lipstick that comes in tons of neutral and super bold shades. The brand now offers a huge range of innovative, professional-quality makeup. We totally love the Lip Tar mini sets! Since a little goes a long way with this lipstick, you might not end up using the whole tube before it is time to get a new one. With the mini sets, you can try a bunch of different shades without wasting any makeup!






5/ Essence

essence Cosmetics is a popular European brand sold at ULTA. While it may seem like our usual drugstore brands at first glance, don’t be fooled. With high quality products, catchy colors and super cute packaging, essence is clearly rising above the lot. The essence waterproof gel eye pencil was the 2014 Allure Beauty winner ! The brand is colorful, whimsical and very affordable- in other words, we’re totally digging it! Here are a couple of our favorite essence products: the pastel candy eyeshadows, the gel eyeliner and theeffects pencil liners.



6/ Barry M

Originating in London, make-up brand Barry M is known for their vivid color palette. It is super popular in the UK, but has yet to become a staple in the US. Sold at ASOS, it has some very affordable lipsticks starting at $3.
