1. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – AED 42
If you’re out of concealer and are looking for an economic option, this product is something you’d want to try. It’s lightweight, creamy and bendable, pigmented formula that can be buildable for heavier coverage. Comes with a doe shaped applicator, which you can directly apply under eyes and blemishes and blend with your finer. And best part – it comes in pink and yellow undertones. A great product for its cost and a dupe for the NARS radiant creamy concealer. I use the shade “Medium 25.”
Where to find it? At any lifestyle store across the UAE or it can be purchased online at landmarkshops.com.
2. Misslyn Soft Eyebrow Liner Waterproof – AED 35
I prefer this over the other high-street brands because it has taupe and ashy brown shades over orange brown shades, which makes the brows look more natural. The formula is soft and easy to apply. The pencil form gives a good grip to create natural strokes and ombré for the perfect brows. This product also saves you the hassle of using a brow gel to tame the brows since it has a waxy ingredient which tames them as you apply and keeps them intact all-day long making them waterproof and sweat resistant. I use the shade “6 taupe” for natural brows.
Where to find it? At any lifestyle store across the UAE.
3. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 400 ml. – AED 36
Now this product is one of the best investments you’ll ever make! Not only does it remove your makeup from the face, eyes and lips, so easily, it also cleanses leaving your skin soft without the need to use a face wash after. It works for all skin types; and I say this with assurance as 3 of us at home having a combination of dry, oily, acne-prone skin types use this. It’s a great dupe for the Bioderma micellar water which I’ve ben religiously using; but thanks to this new product, it does the job as efficiently and for less than half the price I used to spend before!
Where to find it? At any hypermarket or supermarket across the UAE.
4. Red Cherry Lashes – AED 25
Literally the most natural looking lashes. And by natural I don’t mean they don’t have dramatic options, but even the dramatic ones look like they’re your natural lashes. The band type is thin and transparent which makes it easy to bend and curve around your lid and fit right into the lash line without being visible. They’re super affordable and good for everyday and everyday events! My favorites are Ivy 415 and Stevi 43.
Where to find it? It’s available for purchase on girliestuffs.com.
5. NYX Matte Lipstick – AED 32
Everyone these days wants to wear a liquid lipstick, but here’s another matte option that looks great and doesn’t dry your lips as the liquids do; and for a quarter of the price too. These lipsticks have an amazing creamy formula which is long lasting, except if you eat super greasy food, it will wear off from the center. They have a variety of colors that suit every skin type. I use them on the daily as the packaging is compact and light and they have 2 of my favorite shades that I alternate everyday – “Euro Trash” (dupe for MAC velvet teddy) and “Tea Rose.”
Where to find it? At any Lifestyle store across the UAE.
These products are amongst the ones I cannot live without! Hope these make it to yours as well.
