Budget Makeup Products for Teens- 2

Lip Glosses: Lip glosses are my saviour. I have been using them since I was 14-15. Some of the lip glosses you can check out are:
1. Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss: Rs.250.
2. Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds: Rs.180.
3. Lakme Lip gloss: Rs.175. These are available in tubes. Only bad thing is that only three colours are available- Strawberry, Vanilla and Bubblegum. A must-have, according to me.
4. Elle 18 Colorbomb Lip Smoothies: Rs.85. Six shades of these lip glosses are available. But I don’t recommend them. They kind of disappoint.
5. Colorbar Star Shine Lip Gloss: Rs.225.
6. Colorbar Juicy Candy Lipgloss: Rs.199.
7. Lotus Herbals Tinted Lipgloss: Rs.225.

MY PICK: Lakme Lip Gloss (I love them), Maybelline Water Shine Liquid Diamonds.

L-R: Lakme Lip gloss, Colorbar Juicy Candy Lipgloss, Maybelline Water Shine Liquid Diamonds, Nivea Glamorous Gloss Pink Sugar, Nivea Fruity Shine Lipbalm Pomegranate (it’s a lipbalm, not gloss), Elle 18 Colorbomb Lip Smoothie.

Lipsticks: Most people won’t approve of young girls using lipsticks but if you know the right colours for you, then you are going to look like a Diva with lipstick on. I have used only Maybelline Watershine lipsticks, only because they are more like a gloss than lipsticks (you can buy them if you don’t mind the gloss-instead-of-lipstick thing, they are for Rs.230). However, some lipstick suggestions are:
1. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks: Rs.299.
2. Maybelline Color Sensational moisture Rich Lipcolor: Rs.220.
3. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks: Rs.225.
4. Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick: Rs.300.
5. Elle 18 Colorbomb Lipstick: Rs.100.

MY PICK: Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick, Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick.

L-R: Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick, Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor, Maybelline Watershine Lipcolor.

Lipbalm: Lipbalms are an absolute necessity for everyone. Whether you apply lipstick or gloss, it is always advisable to rub some balm onto your lips before that.
1. Nivea Lip Balm: Available in various fruit flavours (Nivea Fruit Shine), Liquid Care gloss or plain balms, they are every lip balm-lover’s favourite. Price: Rs.89-Rs.159.
2. Maybelline Lip Smooth: Rs.99. Available in 6 flavours.
3. Lipice Lipblam: Plain fruit flavoured balm (Rs.120) or Sheer Color ‘Magic” Balm (Rs.190).

MY PICK: Nivea Fruit Shine Lip Balms, Lipice Sheer Color Balm.

Nothing can beat coloured nails. Whether they are glittery shades or shimmery shades or bright neon ones, they are sure to add oomph and spunk to your look. Every brand has their own nail paints and nail paints are mostly below Rs.300. But the cheapest among them are:
nail paints
1. Maybelline Colorama Nail Paint: Rs.85.
2. Elle 18 Colorbomb Nail Pops: Rs.45.
3. Streetwear Nail Enamel: Rs.45-Rs.90.
4. Lakme Nail enamel: Rs.90.

However, if you are willing to extend the budget a little , do checkout Colorbar, Revlon and Maybelline Express Finish Nail Polishes.

MY PICK: Streetwear Nail Enamel, Maybelline Colorama Nail Paint.

1. Makeup Remover: Maybelline Eye and Lip Make-up Remover- Rs.190.

2. Nail Polish Remover: Lakme Nail Color Remover (Rs.49), Colorbar Nail Polish Remover (Rs.50).

3. Brushes: Vega Brushes- They are easily available. Price: Starts from Rs.50 (depending on the brush).

Apart from these, Avon (Simply Pretty range) and Oriflame have pretty inexpensive stuff, but since you need a consultant for them, I didn’t mention them.

:clap: :clap: :clap:
I am now eternally grateful of your Budget Beauty Products posts!!!!~ :yahoo: :kissing: :love:
and now that I have one more person recommending the Colorbar Juicy Candy glosses,I will definitely buy 2!!~ 😀
And I might just try out these Elle 18 nail polishes. But I will never again buy a Colorama nail polish. They are difficult to remove and they chip off too…so.No. :nababana:
On a side note,I am now a fan of yours! :inlove: Your choices are great.


Riz July 2, 2011 at 4:26 pm

yes…Colorama nail polishes are really hard to remove… :methinks: but i love the colours…. :manicure: :manicure:
as far as Colorbar juicy lip gloss goes, I am not a fan of it. They are just ok…nicely fragranced and shimmery…but they are somewhat sticky.. :yuck:
and fan??….hehehehehe…. :yahoo: fans are always welcome… 😉


Pragnyadeepta July 2, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Ah~ I agree.The colour options are innumerable! *sigh* If only they weren’t such a pain in the neck to manage. :waiting:
Hahaha!! xD I’m not too picky with my glosses as long as they look,and smell nice. But that doesn’t mean that I wear any the will cling to my hair jab hawa ka ek jhokaan ae. :nono:

:jalwa: :jalwa: LOL you deserve it for your to-the-point and reader friendly posts!!~ :cheers:
….OMG…I just realised that most “Budget Beauty” cosmetics come from Maybelline. :hihi:


Ankita July 2, 2011 at 5:08 pm

loved the compilation Riz!! and more than that..loved the pictures!! You have an awesome collection of lip glosses/balms :woot:


Riz July 3, 2011 at 1:18 pm

thank you… :victory2:

Supriya July 2, 2011 at 9:36 pm
