Affordable Makeup Haul!

Hey all!

During my hunt to find affordable and good quality makeup, I have looked into, some of the drugstore makeup brands and makeup brands local to Kuwait. I ended up purchasing, a few items I have not used before. I’m also aware that, some of these items, are not available everywhere. The brands I purchased were: Isa Dora, Flormar and Inglot. I have used Inglot before but the other two are new to me. Also, I’m not going to review these products in this post because I want to use them, for another week, before I pass a verdict on their quality and use.

Isa Dora is a Swedish beauty brand and it seems to be popular for its affordability. Its available at some Boots stores, here in Kuwait. They claim that their products are safe for use by people with sensitive skin! So yeyy for that! You can check their website here.

Isa Dora

I picked up the Isa Dora Pro Tect Face primer, Lift & Cover Firming Anti Wrinkle Foundation and their Face Sculpt in Nude. The rest of the stuff, a mascara, lip gloss and nail polish were free gifts! So I get to try out most of their products! Yeyy! DSC_0474As you can tell its got a Bronzer, Blusher And Highlight. I picked it up immediately because currently, I have a Too Faced- Natural Face, Natural Radiance Face Palette and I absolutely love it!  So I wanted to see if this would come anywhere close to that. I’m not trying to compare the two because the too faced palette has a cream blush, luminizer and concealer as well. I just want to see if I can create the same effect with this one. DSC_0475The face primer comes in a tinted shade as well and on retrospect it seems, that it would have made more sense, if I’d picked that up instead, but I really wanted to try their foundation as well.

Moving on…Flormar Cosmetics, started up in Italy but have been based In Turkey for the past 40 yeas or so. They used to make nail polishes, but later ventured into all makeup. You can read about them here.

Flormar

I picked up their Perfect Coverage Foundation, Full Coverage Concealer, Illuminating Primer and High Performance Volume Mascara. I had also wanted to pick up their blush.. and bronzer.. but I just couldn’t choose between all the gorgeous colors!! They were beautiful and I wanted to buy almost all of them! As for the bronzer…I cant even… it was the size of a CD! Like really, it was HUGE! In the end, I settled for the above and made a mental note, to return when I was satisfied the products were worth the spend.

AND if you have not noticed in the picture above, that IS a Rotating Mascara! Yes, I KNOW !! Anyone remember the Lancome Oscillation Mascara and the Estee Lauder Turbo Lash Mascara?? Well my friends, Flormars got you covered:

DSC_0481I dunno, if I’m supposed to mention it here, but psssst…its amazingggg !!!! Sorry guys, but I couldn’t hold off, until the review blog because I’m in love with this thing!!! If only we knew…

Next up is Inglot..Read about them here. Among the three, Inglot seems to be the most popular. They are all over the world and they also have the “freedom system” which I adore. You start with a one time purchase of their palette, and then you can get refills, for lesser price later on..so super cool…*thumbs up*

DSC_0483As you can tell, that is the carry bag and those two are just lip colors. I did not buy a palette simply because I wanted to try them out first! I have used Inglots liquid blush and its so delicious, nevertheless, one must test make up products before investing full on.

DSC_0486All the above makeup brands, are quiet affordable and range along the lines of any other drugstore brands. If anyone out there, doesn’t want to invest, in very expensive makeup, then you should definitely give these a try. I know, its a little scary, to try new brands, that you’ve never heard of, but you can always read about them online. The world is your google my friend! 🙂
