So if you’re on a tight budget but still want to shop for some college beauty essentials, this one is for you. We’ve handpicked a few gorgeous products for all the college-going readers out there.
P.S.: All the products mentioned below are less than 700 rupees!
1. Wet N Wild MegaLast Liquid Lipstick, INR 499/-
With a wide range of colours from pinks, reds, berries and browns and a formula to die for, this one’s a personal favourite of mine. The shade Coral Corruption is a lively day-wear colour which is perfect for college going beauties who love liquid lipstick. It has a smooth, velvety texture which will comfortably sit on your lips throughout your busy day.
2. NYX Butter Gloss, INR 550/-
True to its name, this gloss glides on like butter with a good amount of colour pay-off and smells absolutely divine. I always recommend this gloss to people who aren’t a fan of liquid lipsticks because of their fear of dry, chapped lips. With this gloss, you can moisturise your lips with style. The shade Vanilla Cream Pie is a perfect nude shade for Indian skin and suitable for college goers who like their make up to be subtle.
3. Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder INR 480/-
At the small price of 480 rupees, the quality of the product is insane. This compact is enriched with perlite, a mineral designed to absorb sweat and oil, leaving you with fresh skin all day. It is available in several shades and is extremely travel-friendly, can easily fit in your college bag and is so affordable.
For all the people who travel by train, this product is a must have and will leave your skin looking flawlessly matte. Don’t miss out on this one!
4. The Body Shop Vanilla Body Mist, INR 695/-
This body mist will remind you of roasted marshmallows and campfires, that’s how warm and fuzzy it makes you feel! This scent has been a staple of mine throughout my college years and has never let me down. A few good spritzes will last through your day but I would suggest keeping this in your bag so you always smell fresh, even on-the-go.
5. Himalaya Herbal Lip Balm, INR 28/-
Last but not least, and perhaps one of the most important items on this list is lip balm. Everyone must have a dependable lip balm in their bag that soothes their lips whenever needed. This lip balm is not only the cheapest at 28 rupees, but also rivals the famed Maybelline baby lips and any other competitor that stands in the way.
It is a chemical free, organic lip balm which is enriched with oils of castor, coconut, wheat germ, carrot and extracts of sweet Indrajao. This lip balm truly hydrates chapped lips and keeps them soft and moisturised.
