8 Hidden Gems You (Probably) Didn't Know Your Fave Makeup Brand Sold!

8 Hidden Gems You (Probably) Didn't Know Your Fave Makeup Brand Sold!

I have a few makeup drugstore brands that are very close to my heart. As soon as they launch their new products, I'm actually one of the first people to wait in line just so that I can get my paws on the latest collection. I'm a sucker for makeup that comes in cute packaging and I secretly want to be the girl who owns the rarest and most unique-looking makeup out there.

There are some products that do not see the light of day (read: hog the limelight), but they absolutely deserve to! As a cute and unique makeup hoarder, I have gone deep into the spectrum of all my favourite makeup products from various brands and dug out the most unique ones that deserve your attention. While some of these makeup products are difficult to find at stores, you can certainly find them online or ask your NRI bestie to gift them to you. Feast your eyes, ladies!

1. NYX Professional Makeup Honey Dew Me Up Primer

This cute little bottle was one of the reasons I chose to write this article. I have never seen this primer at any of NYX Professional Makeup store here. I love it because it contains gold flecks and honey. These two ingredients are responsible for giving skin a radiant, glowy finish. Unfortunately, the product is unavailable on both, Nykaa and Flipkart. However, it's available on Amazon for a heftier price. If you have a friend in the States, you should ask them to pick this one up for you. 

Price: Rs 1,929 (Actual price is 1,275) Buy it here.

2. Maybelline Super Stay Foundation Stick

It's such a bummer that this baby isn't launched in India yet  - though, you can still buy it on Amazon. I mean, look at it! It's so cute! This product is a multitasking stick. It contours like a pro and conceals marks and acts as a highlighter too! In case you don't want to use your fingers, it comes with a blender sponge at the back. 

Price: Rs 741 approx. Buy it here

I know, Huda Beauty isn't a drugstore brand, but I feel these products deserve a mention. Sometime last month, I was window shopping at Mall in Mumbai and suddenly my eyes fell on the matte minis from Huda while I was at the makeup store. I think all four of them are a steal for the price. I mean, you're paying 1.6k for just 1 lipstick. Here in less than 3k, you can pick up 4 of your favourite shades. Do the math! 

Price: Rs 2,900. Buy it here

4. Makeup Revolution Renaissance Illuminate - Gleaming Gold

This rose powder blush is probably the cutest that's ever been made. It's a soft, natural-finish powder and is available in 4 different shades. Use it to shape, contour and highlight and your skin will always look like a million bucks. 

Price: Rs 1,300. Buy it here

8. L'Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation

Since when did L'Oreal Paris start selling foundation cushions? I wasn't aware and I'm pretty sure most of you weren't too. A few reasons to pick this baby up is that it gives skin a fresh luminous finish and it provides sheer to medium, buildable coverage. 

Price: Rs 813. Buy it here
