There are so many new/newish makeup brands that are coming our way from Europe and ones that have been here for awhile but not gotten the hype they deserve. I think sometimes people are wary about purchasing inexpensive makeup because how could be it good quality? Well these are inexpensive and wonderful!
ColourPop – This brand is awesome! Not only are the shadows pigmented and the products a great quality, but you just can’t beat the price point! Everything ranges from $5 – $8! They do a great job of creating colors and finishes that are right on trend that you see in magazines but don’t know where to get! This is a great brand!
Essence – You can buy this brand at Ulta and online. It is also very very inexpensive and very high quality makeup! I love that makeup is getting to be more affordable and high quality because it really allows you to play with colors and have fun!
There are also some great European brands that while you can’t order directly through their websites, you can get them at various other online stores!
French brand Bourjois Cosmetics that has been around for awhile, just not in the US. You can buy their products right now on Asos.com or Amazon. Not only are they great products, but they are packaged beautifully! Their website also has great how to videos for those of us that may need a little help and some great ideas!
