Each and every year new beauty brands appear, sometimes out of nowhere, and if their marketing techniques are right we’re burning out our credit cards to make sure that we have the best products out there. After buying a lot of makeup here are some of the brands which you need to make sure you check out:
Because you can’t buy Stila in your more traditional makeup stores like Boots, and John Lewis (in stores only)I think Stila gets unfairly overlooked. You can find this brand in Marks and Spencer and it’s definitely worth the trip especially for their long-wearing eyeliner. Owning about three different shades including the amazing sequins which is a glittery black that no other brand has been able to rival it’s safe to say they’re highly pigmented, so easy to apply with their thin sturdy nibs and really long lasting. Head along to Marks to check them out.
Rosie at Autograph
Another Marks and Spencer brand and this time it’s their in house brand Autograph. I’d never really paid much attention to their products until Rosie Huntington- Whiteley became the face of it. The collection covers pretty much everything from powders, blushers and contours to eyeshadows and lipsticks. Stand out items from the collection include the beautifully pigmented cream blushes which manage to last a full days wear and the lip glossy pens which are not sticky like a traditional gloss, easy to apply in pen format and come in the most beautiful collection of colours.
A lot of people are cottoning onto this brand now that they’re readily stocked in a lot of Superdrug stores but they’re still not being explored enough. The brand have a philosophy of ‘beauty in five minutes’ and have a number of great multi purpose products with wearable colours and formulas. The great news is that the brand are cruelty-free so no animals were harmed in the making of them. The nude-dude palette from their collection is a staple everyday use for me and their Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter is such a lovely shimmery shade that it’s constantly sold out across their stores and online. Take a trip to Superdrug and check out this brand.
This brand’s popularity is growing so fast that shops are popping up absolutely everywhere, fortunately in my hometown too (yay- but sorry money!) For me Kiko are high end quality products with drugstore product prices with most things ranging between £3-8 and very few tipping the £10+ price band. Key items to keep an eye open for are their creamy lipliners which are easy to apply, come in loads of colours and are long lasting, their eyeshadow sticks which are so easy to use with some of the best colour collections out there, and their lipsticks which are such great value starting at just £3!
