Pretty Products That Won't Break The Bank Every makeup addict seems to have an obsession with beautiful packaging, but often those beautiful products have a pretty hefty price tag. Today we’re gonna share some pretty products that won’t break the bank. 


Milani Rose Powder Blushes

Milani have a huge range of incredibly gorgeous makeup products, but personally I haven’t had the chance to try many of them yet. The ones I have tried, and LOVED are the Milani Rose Powder Blushes (RRP: $19.95 NZD). As well as being insanely gorgeous in the pan, they are absolutely beautiful on the cheeks too! The shades I have are Tea Rose & Coral Cove, and you definitely need both in your collection.


Pretty products that won't break the bank - Essence

Essence have been one of my favourite affordable brands for a few years now. I’ve loved almost every single thing I’ve tried, but I have a weakness for their blushes (RRP: $5.65 NZD) and the gel nail polishes (RRP: $3.60 NZD) in particular. 

Essence Gel Nail Polishes & Essence Blushes

The blushes have a lot of pigment, and apply beautifully. The gel nail polishes are probably my all time favourite nail polish formula. Every one I’ve tried has been opaque, and applies like a dream. The brushes in the nail polishes are actually perfect and seem to apply just the right amount of polish to the nail, without any streaking. 

Essence Lights Of Orient Collection

They also come out with some gorgeous limited edition collections, like the Lights Of Orient* one which included an eyeshadow palette and bronzing powder amongst other things. The Essence Lights Of Orient Bronzing Powder in 02 Oriental Beauty* has the most gorgeous pattern, it’s almost too pretty to use. But you’ll be happy when you do, because this is a stunner! If you can still find this collection anywhere, snap it up!


Pretty Products That Won't Break The Bank - L'Oreal

There are so many L’Oreal products that are amazing, but my favourites are the True Match Foundation and the True Match Illuminating Powder.

If there’s one foundation I know I can count on, it’s the L’Oreal True Match Foundation (RRP: $10.95 USD). No matter what condition my skin is in, it never lets me down. It lasts all day, has medium to full coverage and there are a whole lot of shades to match a range of skin tones. 

The True Match Illuminating Powder* (RRP: $19.99 NZD) is one of their newest products, and I really enjoy it as a highlighter. It can be subtle, but buildable enough to pack a punch. The shade I have is Rosy Glow, and it’s so nice on lighter skin tones. Highly recommend checking it out!

Pretty products that won't break the bank

When it comes to pretty products that won’t break the bank, I think it’s also important for those products to perform well. Just because a product has gorgeous packaging, doesn’t mean it’s worth picking up. You can be sure that all of these definitely live up to the task.

Have you tried any of these products? Are there any affordable products you own that have gorgeous packaging?

Thanks for viewing!
