Is there anything better than buying a new lipstick? Yup, buying a cheap lippie for less than 700 bob. I have been on a spending ban and decided to buy some cheapish products that do a fantastic job.
First off, Jordana Cosmetics are now being stocked at Chandarana. Jordana is a sister company to Milani Cosmetics and their products are cheap and cheerful.
I have been dreaming of finding the perfect orange lippie and I think I found it in this Jordana Matte Lipstick in Tangerine Tango. The colour makes me feel like packing a bikini and straw hat and going off on a beach holiday.
You can buy the lippie for Kshs 450 from Chandarana Supermarket.
If you have big lips, you know glossy lipsticks and lipglosses in general can be a huge no-no. I love matte lippies as they make me feel like my lips are not taking over my whole face. However the L.A Girl Glazed Lip Paints are glossy but not overwhelmingly so. I walked into Goodlife Pharmacy in Westgate and saw these for Kshs 650 and had to try one. They are super pigmented and can easily last the whole day. I may rethink glossy lips now.
For my everyday makeup, I hardly wear foundation! I mainly conceal my spots, under eyes and around my nose and mouth. I have been using these L.A Girl Pro Concealers and they work a treat for Kshs 650 each. I have the shades Toffee and Warm Sand which are a few shades lighter than my skin but work well to brighten up my face. They are now my holy grail concealer!
Do you kurlies have any cheap make up recommendations that have become holy grail products? Would love to hear the recs in the comments.
