Budget beauty buys: MAKE-UP

Thursday, 16 January 2014

Besides for the back-to-work blues, most of us have spent our beauty money on having a good time. But don’t let this get to you. We bring you make-up beauty buys under R200 that might even become firm favourites:

Budget make-up buys under R200

Wet n Wild Mega Liner Liquid Liner, R39.95 – Create dramatic eyes with this liquid liner. It is easy to control and lets you create a perfect line. We love the colours too!

essence Lash Mania Reloaded False Lash Mascara, R39.95 – Show off your mega lashes with this reloaded mascara from essence. It offers incredible volume and it doesn’t clump. The bright silver tube will stick out in your make-up bag too!

Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Loose Powder, R179.00 – If you are prone to breakouts and skin irritations then you’ll fall in love with this mineral powder. It comes packaged with an innovative sifter lid that helps contain mess, and has a perfectly placed brush too. Natural finish in one easy step.

Labello Vanilla & Macadamia Lip Butter, R29.99  – Great to pop into your work bag for some on-the-go lip hydration. This cute little pot of lip butter smells great and leaves a soft shine on your lips too.

Ralo Cosmetics Diamante Lipstick, R44.50 – If you are a lover of lipsticks and like to keep more than one shade on you at a time, these are very affordable and small enough to keep in your bag. Pretty diamanté packaging also makes it the perfect gift.

Juice Beauty Cheek Glow Powder, R230 – Organic make-up for the new year that is slightly over the budget, BUT we just love it. For a bit of extra cash it will give your cheeks a natural, healthy glow thanks to the combination of fruit extracts and minerals.

Sorbet BB Cream, R99.95 – Not only is this BB cream within your budget, but it’s also an all-in-one beauty solution. Perfect to apply before your workday as a quick fix to give you a flawless finish.

    I like the Labello lip butters, but I just wish they had some colour.Even the pink one is sheer.

    I’m not a huge fan of applying lip butter with my fingers onto my lips for hygiene purposes so will give the Labello a skip but Physicians Mineral Powder has my attention

    I have tried the Cherry Labello Jello Balm and wow. Your lips feels so soft and smooth with a great scent; I can only imagine how good the Labello lip butter would be

    I am still shocked at the affordability of Wet ‘n Wild products! And thus far, I have read and heard good things about them. And it doesn’t surprise me that Essence is on this list :)
