3 Cheap Make Up Brands Alternatives

I love finding drugstore makeup that performs like high end makeup. But I also love finding ‘cheap’ makeup that lasts like good quality drugstore makeup. So here are my top 3 finds:

miki.jpgMiki: Miki is often found for under $5. Their top performing product would be their nail polishes, which last just as well as any drugstore nail polish but for a cheaper price. They also do a blush and bronzer that competes with the Maybelline Fit Me range. Miki’s eyeliner formula could use some work though.

essence_logo_glow.pngEssence: I love Chi Chi eyeliners; they were my go to until I discovered Essence which does almost identical looking eyeliners for a quarter of the price. Essence does a variety of other great eye products too. However, Chi Chi’s eyeshadow range is better and Chi Chi also has a lipstick range with superior lasting powder and better foundation choices.

la-girlLA Girl: LA Girl has a fantastic range of eyeshadow palettes and gel eyeliners. They also have some great lip choices too. They are a couple of dollars dearer than Miki or Essence but still cheaper than typical drugstore brands and probably the biggest competition.

There are some things that I prefer to get from a particular brand and some things these cheaper brands have yet to try (like contouring palettes). But certain products these brands produce are already make the more expensive alternatives look unattractive.
