NYX Cosmetics

NYX Cosmetics is an amazing brand of makeup that delivers great quality for a great price. I’m a huge fan and have been for a long time. It’s really hard to believe that you can get such quality products at the low prices they sell for. Their selection is huge, especially in the lip department. They’re available at Ulta, Target as well as other retailers.


ColourPop Cosmetics

ColourPop Cosmetics was a brand I hadn’t heard of until recently but let me say, I’m very impressed. They carry some beautiful matte lippies as well as being very well known for their highlighters. I recently ordered 2 of them and can’t wait until they come in to play with them. Additionally, you can save $5 on your first order by signing up for emails. Combine that with their fabulously low prices and it’s a steal!


E.l.f. Cosmetics

Most of us have heard of e.l.f. cosmetics but if you’ve never really give them a try, it’s past time. They’re available at so many stores as well as online so it’s very easy access. Their cosmetics are no joke! They deliver lovely looks for a fraction of the price of other brands. In addition to great makeup products, they also have really nice brushes. Some of my favorites brushes are the ones I got for $1 from e.l.f.


Barry M Cosmetics

This was a new brand to me. I hadn’t heard of it until I started doing research for this article. It turns out that it’s a wildy popular brand in the UK but just up and coming here. You can purchase it at ASOS though and enjoy trying something new from the other side of the pond. It’s priced moderately and has lots of fun options.


Wet N’ Wild Cosmetics

If you’re like most girls, you’ve given Wet n’ Wild a try before. It can seem like they’re a hit or miss and sometimes that’s the case. But it does seem as if they’re quality is coming way up in the recent months and years. If you haven’t tried it in awhile then it’s definitely time to do so. I’ve heard a lot of positive buzz recently about their eyeshadow palettes and lippies.


Essence Cosmetics

Essence Cosmetics is a very reasonably priced brand you can find at Ulta. While it may seem like just another drugstore brand, it’s most certainly not. It has lots of fabulous products to offer. I have one girlfriend that swears by their mascara and another who won’t give up their lipsticks so there’s definitely a product for everyone. I’ve got their mascara on my beauty products wish list!


2B Colors Cosmetics

Lastly, lets’ talk about 2B Cosmetics. This’s a fun little brand that I’m anxious to try. It’s new to Ulta from Europe and definitely catches my eye. The packaging looks fun and inviting. My first impression of this brand is that it’d be a fun one to supplement your daily makeup look with.

What brands do you turn to when you need to shop for makeup on a budget? What’s your favorite drugstore makeup product? I can’t wait to read your replies!
