These won’t pinch your wallet.
Don’t be fooled, just because they’re sold at pharmacies doesn’t mean the cosmetic products and brands aren’t any good or on trend. From matte lipsticks to rainbow highlighters, they have them all for less.
We raided the shelves of our local drugstores to find makeup products that are half the price but work just as well as the higher end brands we’ve been loving.
We’ve heard many beauty gurus rave about Physicians Formula products and lucky us, the brand is now offered at Watson’s Malaysia. Built on the claims that their products are made without allergens or chemicals that can irritate skin, the makeup products are labelled natural and organic.
The Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum is one of our fav products from the brand. The thin applicator brush tip enables precise application while the lash boosting serum sits at the base of the lashes where it is most effective. Get an effortless wing while you work on getting fluttery lashes.
Catrice is a European cosmetic company that is always on the ball with makeup trends the world over. Guardian Pharmacy recently introduced the brand into their range of cosmetic products and we’re digging it.
Out of over a hundred different products, we’re hooked on the Prime and Fine Pore Refining Anti-Shine Base. Perfect for those of us with oil-ridden skin, this primer does exactly what it says: not greasy, long-lasting and lightweight enough to bear our drastic weather.
Many of us consider Revlon an aunty brand because we see our mums and aunts rave about their lipsticks and compacts but there’s a reason it’s been a go-to brand all these years. Founded in 1932, the brand has been going strong because they produce quality products that stand the test of time. With celebs like Lady Gaga and Ciara backing the brand, you know it’s worth a try.
The Revlon Colorstay Foundation range is a lightweight and buildable foundation that is great for everyday use. Half the price of many well-known foundations in the industry, Revlon has managed to formulate a product that rivals high end brands with its application and staying power. If you’re just starting out with foundation and want to try something under RM100 then go with Revlon as they have quite the range of shades to choose from too.
No L’Oreal doesn’t just carry haircare products, they also have a wide range of cosmetic products. Named 2016’s World’s Most Valuable Beauty Brand, the French cosmetics company has always been a favourite with Asians as they feature luxe products without the luxe price tag.
The new L’Oreal Riche Lipstick Range is amazing, with various shades for every skin tone, the brand has made the search for the perfect shade of lipstick that much easier. We love how they offer a range of red shades to match various undertones, making them our fav brand for red lippies!
