March 2014: My Current Top 5 Affordable Makeup Products

I love my luxury beauty products!  I perfectly understand,  that is not a necessity but an indulgent, and also I  get that not everyone wants to spend that much on a makeup product. In fact, I often get asked about the affordable products that I would recommend.

So I’ve decided to feature five products that I’ve been really loving lately. I could, of course, add more, but these are the best for me, now.

Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara (review)

I use  this mascara daily now! It is ultra black and glossy and gives great volumizing effect, exactly what I love. For me it’s “go big, or go home” when it comes to mascara.

Another product that I use almost daily. It blends nicely into the skin and gives a natural sculpting effect, nothing muddy or orange.

NYX Taupe Blush Review and Face Swatches. Rave

I’ve been wanting NYX  Taupe Blush  for ages, but bought it only this month. Mainly because it was almost always out of stock whenever I’ve planned  to get one, so I almost forgot that I wanted it…

But it is finally mine, and I am so happy about it! Now, that I finally have it, I understand why is it so hyped up, it never leaves my makeup bag!

This is definitely the best sculpting product out of those that I have. It is matte and cool-toned so fits my skin  perfectly.

I like the texture, it doesn’t feel too powdery and chalky and creates a natural looking shadow (the photo included). For the price, I can’t think of a better option.

By the way, here is a comparison with two popular &, I would even say cult, bronzers Benefit’s Hoola and Chanel’s Bronze Universel.
