TOP 10 best budget brands of cosmetics
Cheap doesn't mean bad! Now, with modern technologies, manufacturers of budgetary funds produce cosmetics, which in their properties are sometimes not inferior to more expensive counterparts. In this article I will talk about the budget brands of cosmetics that I use and I can recommend to take a closer look at them. Perhaps you will find something interesting for yourself.
With brand Vivienne Sabo I have been friends for a very long time, I have tried about a hundred different products of the brand. Most of the brand's products delight with their quality and shades. My favorite products from the brand are Cabaret mascara, a mechanical eyebrow pencil (and for my dark blond eyebrows I use shade 01 so as not to darken my eyebrows, and it looks great), eyebrow gel (a very comfortable brush and good fixation), a pencil for lips (for a promotion you can buy these pencils for 100 rubles, but they are very good in quality, and the variety of shades is impressive). Pro Vivienne Sabo I will write a separate article very soon, because there is an unrealistic amount of amazing new collections out there, I have to show them to you. Here is one of them. Agree, as much as the eye rejoices?!
You can buy it in many places: I saw it in “Girlfriend”, in “Magnit Cosmetic”, in some L'Etoile.
I have already written a separate article about this brand. Here I also have a lot of favorite products, mostly dry products: shadows (good pigmentation, I also liked the durability), absolutely wonderful blush, baked shining powder, face sculptor, powder.
You can buy in Rive Gauche or on the Internet (Wildberries).
This brand has a lot of products that I truly love. Firstly, liquid matte lipsticks (but the brand calls them tints for some reason) - they are simply gorgeous, just as good as the famous Kylie lipsticks: they have good durability, do not dry lips, go on evenly and look like velvet, and the price is this is about 200 rubles. Next at Estrade chic sculptor and highlighter. I really love their creamy shadows, shiny, eyebrow gel, lipsticks are not bad and pigments for the eyelids are crumbly.
You can buy in many online stores (Wildberries, Divamaria).
This is a very young brand of cosmetics, appeared relatively recently, but they already have a lot of products that you might like. I liked the palette with dry blush, sculptor and highlighter. Cream shadows are quite good, eyebrow gel. With mascara from the main collection, I didn’t figure it out a bit: it seems to be not bad, but something is not right for me. But I've only tried one of several mascaras. Maybe other options are better.
Now they have a new summer collection. California Nudewhich I really liked. A palette of cream blush, highlighter and sculptor is simply unrealistically beautiful. Such a gentle delicate highlighter, a very beautiful shade of blush, the sculptor is quite warm, but it suits well under tanned skin. I liked the mascara from this collection, it lengthens and separates the eyelashes well.
I think that everyone already knows about the amazing tonal foundations and concealers of the brand At Vision. The tonal base is just in the photo, but the concealer was not included in the photo (but you can't go wrong, it's the only one there). These products are quite dense and very well cover the imperfections of the skin. I rarely use such foundations in my daily makeup, because I prefer a lighter coverage, but this does not negate the fact that the Art Visage foundation is wonderful.
Next, I liked cream sculptors, dry blush and highlighters, as well as shadows. Especially limited palette Anniversary with gold sequins. Good quality products for the money with a competent selection of shades.
You can buy in Moscow in the "Golden Apple" and in many online stores (Wildberries, Lamoda).
With brand Limoni I happened to meet purely by chance (either they gave me some remedy as a gift, or I got it in a beauty box), and this was the beginning of a great love, and if it weren’t for this gift, I wouldn’t even look in the direction of the brand, I seems. The photo didn’t turn out the best, but I promise to do a more detailed review a little later with an analysis of the funds and swatches. So the brand has a chic sculptor (he is on top in the photo, however, it seems that he is red, but he is not, he has the right gray-brown undertone). The concealer turned out pretty good. I really liked the dry highlighters, they, like the sculptor, come in a small round case. The base under the shadow is also good. But I didn’t like the makeup remover, which is on the right in the photo: it stings your eyes a lot when you remove makeup from your eyes. The segment of skin care cosmetics is also represented by good products (I tried masks, creams and serums, I really liked them).
You can buy in Rive Gauche, Wildberries, Elise, Pudra.ru, as well as in Limoni's own stores.
With brand seventeen I met relatively recently. They have a lot of beautiful lipsticks, pleasant in texture and aroma. Mono shadows are good. The shade of the shadows, which is in the photo, also works great as a highlighter. Excellent lip pencils, lipsticks, glosses, blush. The colors are correct and beautiful, the durability is not bad, it is pleasant to apply.
You can buy at Lamoda, Elise, Golden Apple.
Mark Victoria Shu, to be honest, you can rarely meet in retail. Prices for the brand are very low, but I like the quality. Sculptors and highlighters are not bad. I liked the black eyeliner, a good thin feather. To be honest, I can’t say anything specific about the mascara: in general, it’s not bad, but I didn’t find anything supernatural. I love the matte liquid lipsticks. I have collected a whole collection because they are very cool: they feel very comfortable on the lips, they give a beautiful matte finish, they do not dry out the lips, a very beautiful palette of shades, persistent. In principle, it is not much worse than popular Western analogues in terms of properties (of course, I do not take into account the composition of the products).
You can buy in the online stores Randewoo, Roskosmetica.ru, Wildberries, Golden Apple.
The brand has been around, I think, for a thousand years, but is rarely found in stores. I remember that at a time when the Arbat-prestige chain of stores still existed, this brand was represented there. But after the closure of the network, the brand was rarely seen anywhere.
I liked the Ninelle brand of lipsticks in a stick, they have a very delicate texture, good durability and a comfortable feeling on the lips. The shadows are generally good, the pigmentation is average, the durability is also average, it is quite a good option for daytime makeup. I liked the blush of this brand, they come in two shades at once, it is very convenient, you can mix and get new shades. This is especially true in summer, when the face is tanned and you want a darker blush.
You can buy in Elise, Watsons, Wildberries, Lamoda.
Divage constantly pleases with new good products. It is difficult to single out something specific, because in general, all products are good. The mascara and eyeliner definitely deserve attention. Eyebrow shadows are available from Divage in a very wide variety of shades, you can definitely choose the right tone for yourself. A double powder with a darker shade for sculpting and a lighter shade for highlighting volume. Lots of beautiful lip glosses and lipsticks. I remained a little indifferent to the shadows, somehow it did not grow together with them. The rest of the products are good.
You can buy in the following stores: Lamoda, Wildberries, Podruzhka, Golden Apple, and there are also independent Divage stores.
