Although I’m not shopping for anything other than essentials right now, I enjoy adding things to my wish list for future purposes… especially those related to the beauty industry! However, I have realised that my bank account lets out a little sigh every time I splurge. Thus, I’ve curated a list of wallet-friendly beauty products that I can invest in without feeling too guilty! Scroll below to see my picks.
1. Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate The Gelato Collection In ’03 Raspberry’
Price: INR 800/-
I’ve been lusting over these bright eye pencils ever since I spotted them on Instagram! With the promise of being creamy and pigmented, these rainbow hues are perfect for creating a fun and graphic eye. Whilst all the shades are gorgeous, I’ve got my eye on this peppy pink.
2. Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
Price: INR 890/-
Waterproof mascara, full-coverage foundations and grime are no match for this cleansing balm. Not only does it melt away all kinds of residue, but also leaves the skin feeling moisturised and smooth. I’m considering buying this travel-sized version so that I can carry it around with me everywhere I go.
3. Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayon In ‘Lead The Way’
Price: INR 599/-
Since I’m a huge fan of the liquid lipstick from this range, I know that this tube will be a good purchase. The pinkish-nude shade seems ideal for everyday use and also is neutral enough to pair with a smoky eye.
4. Sephora Collection Colorful Magnetic Eye Shadow In ‘Go Green’
Price: INR 750/-
Green eyeshadows and brown eyes are a match made in heaven. This beautiful, forest green hue has a crushed metal effect so that your lids can shimmer and shine all night.
5. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask Jar
Price: INR 900/-
Is it just me or does your hair also feel straw-like and tangled these days? To counteract the dryness, I’m planning to invest in a tub of this nourishing hair mask. Infused with argan oil, vitamins, rosehip oil and collagen, this formula works to restore your mane to its strong and healthy self.
6. OPI Nail Lacquer In ‘Do You Lilac It’
Price: INR 850/-
This cheerful, yet sophisticated lilac nail paint reminds of blooming flowers and sunny days. Although my nails are bare right now, I can’t wait to do them up in this pretty shade.
7. Organic Riot Zap
Price: INR 980/-
Stress-induced acne is a real thing! Since I’m nearly out of my spot treatments, I’ve been looking out for a new one to try. Formulated with a host of natural ingredients such as manuka essential oil, tamanu oil and neem seed oil, this clear serum tackles zits, without drying out your skin or causing any irritation.
