Makeup is love. But, like, really expensive love. And as much as we wish we could run to Sephora every week, we know it’s simply not possible. But worry not, ladies, for we have for you 10 amazing and super affordable makeup brands! Shop from these without breaking your bank!
1. Elle 18: For the young at heart!
Elle 18 is possibly the best brand for affordable makeup in India and a personal favourite of mine! It’s a cosmetics brand under Unilever, which also owns brands like Lakme, Pond’s and Dove, so you can be assured of the quality of their products. Their nail paints start at just 50 bucks and their lipsticks at Rs 100! If you want a bright, fun variety of colours, we suggest you to check out Elle 18’s products.
With consistently good reviews and products that are super affordable, Coloressence is definitely a favourite of ours. Their concealer stick at just Rs 185 is definitely the most affordable one around!
Vibrant, young and colourful, Street Wear is an affordable brand under the more upscale Revlon. We absolutely love how reasonable (nail enamels starting at 60 bucks!) and cheerful their products are. If you are a beginner in the world of makeup, this is a brand you should definitely check out.
Elf is one international brand that is super affordable and super good! They ship to India, show prices in INR, calculate all your charges at checkout and have low shipping costs - could it be any more convenient? You can buy lipsticks for as low as Rs 144 and eye colours for Rs 72!! It’s definitely the most affordable foreign brand around!
Essence is a brand dedicated to excellent prices and quality. Their eyeshadow palettes at Rs 399 are one of most affordable ones around, and as a really important added bonus - they don’t test on animals!
6. Makeup Geek: For the quirky, colourful makeup geek
Makeup Geek is a brand with such a fun website. You can find makeup products that are droolworthy and affordable. But along with that, you also get a lot of videos that teach you how to use those products! Pretty cool, right?
Nelf stands for nails, eyes, lips and face - the four departments where women want to look great! This brand from USA has a range of products and their pricing starts at just Rs 60! Also, their gel nail paint is one of the most reasonable ones available in the Indian market today!
Lotus is one of the most affordable all-natural makeup and skincare brands in India. Their nail paints retail at Rs 120 and are of extremely good quality! If you want good and reasonable beauty products, this is the brand for you.
With their range of cheerful eyeliners and lipsticks in a wide variety of colours, MUA sure has our heart! And if you’re feeling bold, do check out their pink and blue mascaras (available only for 245 bucks!)
