Five Makeup and Beauty Products Under Rs.100

Five Beauty Products Under Rs.100

I am a new make up addict,a beginner you can say and the credit goes to IMBB and the beauty blog’s world :). But as I am new in make up I don’t want or I cant spend directly on high end products I buy cheaper products first then after getting comfortable and used to the product I can think of buying high end products.I was bored so I was fooling around with google(googling random things:D) so I googled “five beauty products under Rs.100″ and there was no such thing so i thought if I can write something like that.I quickly went through the products I have and I shortlisted five products.I guess I cud have come up with a few more but these came to my mind that time and here they are:).So today out of the products I have I am listing 5 products that are below Rs.100 and I absolutely love them. So the products are as follows:-

1. Lakme Face Magic Daily Wear Soufflé(Rs.99):- I guess all of you must be knowing about this product. Though I’ve read negative reviews about this product but I’ve read some good reviews this product. I bought it because I guess I liked the packaging(it’s weird I know but I am a sucker for cute packagings :D) but when i started using it I wished it was in a bottle cause putting my finger into the tub everytime is quite a pain:( as the product gets into my nail. It does not give any coverage but it does even out the complexion and gives it a kinda glow.And it never turned orange on me as i heard it did on some people.Has SPF so you don’t need to put on a separate sun block.I just love it and I would recommend it if you are looking for something to put on daily, its not for you if you are looking for coverage.

2. Olivia All-Over Make Up Stick(Rs.90):- Its a creamy concealer like-ish stick. I read on the pack that its a Concealer, Foundation and moisturizer in one. Its a make up stick that is meant to be used all over the face, I never used it that way so cant really comment on that but I guess in case you need very heavy coverage you can use it all over the face. I use it as a concealer for my dark circles that i have because I wear glasses and it works good for that. Another plus is it comes in 11 shades so you can easily find the right shade :)

3. Hashmi Kajal(Rs.40):-Almost every Indian girl uses kajal since childhood so i guess all of us have come across various brands of kajal through our life. I only started using kajal since I was in 11th i guess but as a child I always saw mom putting surma in her eyes the one that has that stick kinda thing. That’s the reason i was fascinated by the packaging of this kajal plus hashmi is a well known name in kajals.It also comes in a bullet form and the price is same as the tube.It’s a true intense black kajal and gives that intense black color in just one swipe. It does smudge a bit all kajals do but it stays on the waterline for quite long.

4. Lotus Herbal Lip Balm(Rs.80):- Out of all the products this is the product I’ve used the most and I am totally totally loving it :).This is my 4th tub and I aspire to buy more:P. The one I am using presently is Raspberry I’ve used strawberry before,it moisturizes the lips and gives that slight red tint to the lips. I keep changing the lip balms but then I keep coming back to this one as I never liked any lip balm as much as I like this balm.For me lip balm is lotus herbals.:D.The first tub I bought was for Rs.50 so you can say I’ve grown with this product;).I am totally addicted to this if i have to live with only one beauty product it would definitely be lotus lip balm.

5.Avon Simply Pretty Shine No More Pressed Powder(Rs.79):- The Avon prices keep changing as every month the brochure comes with some or the other discounts. But this the regular price. The powder can be used to set the foundation and also for touch ups. I have oily combination skin so it works whenever I need something to absorb that extra oil.Has SPF 14. The packaging is pretty normal, no fancy packaging(but then what else do you expect at Rs.79:P).It’s a good buy at that cost:) Selecting the right shade from the catalog is quite a task, i just took a risk and i ended up getting the perfect shade for my skin. I have the Natural Beige shade and its the exact shade for my skin :)

I have used two bottles of lakme souffle during my college days. It was okay then but I cant use it now. I kind of feel I have nothing on my skin. So why apply it only. :P

I louve love love lotus lip balms. They are life savers. :)

I stopped using hashmi kajal because it has lead in it and is quite harmful for eyes. It’s quite a controversial kajal. A lot of suppliers in Pakistan don’t even sell it anymore.

Reply

Deepika October 21, 2010 at 7:00 pm

This is my first bottele of souffle and i like it a lot…specially coz it evens out the complexion so well :-D :-D
And lotus lip balms…aahh..nothing can match up to them :inlove: :inlove:

Ya even i’ve heard tht abt hashmi kajal recently but its sooo good :-(( :-((

Reply

Rati October 21, 2010 at 7:19 pm

Yeah it’s so black na…I can understand. :))

Reply

Deepika October 21, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Man..I guess its like the ABCD book to every eye makeup lover …since nowadays its gettin difficult to get Elle 18 products even in regular stores..I have a stock of 5 bottles of it..keep them safely wrapped ..away from sunlight.. so that they dont dry up :-D :-D :-D :-D ..Its cheap-all day lasting-non smudging-jet black-and my winged eyes are never made without it :-* :-* :-*

Reply

Smita T October 21, 2010 at 4:57 pm

OMG i just bought this exact same LOTUS lip balm today !!!!!!! i got the ‘fruity fusion’ flavour… this is my very first lotus product, i was not aware of this brand until i came to IMBB, i was like ‘lakme lakme lakme lakme’ till now… only now i’m venturing into other brands. I’m looooooovingg this lipbalm!!!!
nice article deepika, i’m liking the sound of OLIVIA… thinking of buying it.. sounds pretty good, all in one.

Deepika October 21, 2010 at 7:11 pm

Thanks Smita :-) :-)
Yeah that was the Flavour i was talking abt…which color is it? ?:-) ?:-)
I’ll get that next… :-) and no doubt u’ll love the the balm!!
About olivia they’ve come up with a new packaging…i checked on the website….nice colorful packaging :-) but i have no idea how one can use it as a foundation… ?:-) ?:-)

Reply

Smita T October 21, 2010 at 8:59 pm

Its colour is faded pink… it smells like strawberrys and feel AWESOMEEEEEEE no wonder people out here rave about LOTUS… i bought it today, and have already worn it 5 times hehehe
Can you give me OLIVIAS websites name ?

Reply

Deepika October 21, 2010 at 10:29 pm

I wud try that flavour next… :-) :-)

Smita T October 21, 2010 at 10:58 pm

Yes do try :-)
I have no point of reference because this was my very first lotus lip balm, but i love it, i’m going to try other flavous next.
Rasberry is dark coloured na, so does it tint your lips? Like, does it colour it ? Because i think ‘fruity fusion’ makes my lips a li’l pinkish, my lip colour is almost the same as the fruity fusion, but i still think it colours it a bit

Smita T October 21, 2010 at 10:58 pm

thanks for the site

Reply

Deepika October 21, 2010 at 11:05 pm

Oh yes it does give a color to the lips….but a slight one nothing overwhelming or too much…actly i have pigmented lips..it may a diff color to the pink lips :idk:
and Ur welcome :-)

Reply

Smita T October 21, 2010 at 11:43 pm

hai na? i thought so !! i’m loving the colour that fruity fusion gives out !!
btw what does pigmented lips mean ??

Reply

Deepika October 22, 2010 at 12:19 am

It means dark lips not the actual pinky pinky lips but a bit dark….

ik October 22, 2010 at 12:23 am

Deepika October 22, 2010 at 12:47 am

Smita T October 22, 2010 at 10:01 am

Hey i completely agree with the review about the souffle coz i too accidentally started using it at my fren’s place and fell in love for it. it actually gives a glow to ur face and covers the uneven skin tones smartly. i believe the bad reviews abt the it might be coz girls are not choosing the right shades as per their skin tone.
