The best (and most affordable!) makeup brands.
Samantha Lett, Online Editor
Makeup can be both a blessing and a curse. Especially if you find yourself in Sephora, or the expensive side of Ulta, every other weekend. It will drain your bank account if you’re obsessed with the peach collection that Too Faced has gifted the world, or the Naked palettes that became famous. But there are great brands with great prices that will leave you wanting more (which can happen because you’ll have more money).
For those who love Anastasia Beverly Hills from their liquid lipsticks to their glow kits,
ColourPop is a great brand. With a formula that potentially even tops Kylie’s, ColourPop is pigmented and affordable. Their lipsticks are only six dollars, and are in many different finishes (Ultra Matte, Ultra Satin, Ultra Metallic, Ultra Glossy, Ultra Blotted) and colors for everyone! Their highlighters are eight dollars a (Colour)pop, and they are best sellers. Churro and Lunch Money are the ones most talked about. You can find their amazing products here: https://colourpop.com/
For more bang for your buck, BH Cosmetics has many different products, and sometimes in bulk, for a great price that seems almost too good to be true. For any makeup lover, or artist to be, they have amazing brush kits that range from an 8 piece set to a 44 piece collection! They are most known for their 88 neutral eyeshadow palette, which is a dupe for the more
expensive Morphe (and contains more colors!) all for a fair price of $12.99 regularly. However, BH Cosmetics is known for their awesome sales that happen just about every week, if not every day! You can check them out here: http://www.bhcosmetics.com/
For more makeup dupes and affordable brands, the best ones in most drugstores are Nyx and Elf. For dupes specifically, here’s a list of splurges versus steals: http://www.gurl.com/2014/05/01/splurge-vs-steal-makeup-beauty-dupes-nars-elf-mac-nyx/
