Favorite Affordable Beauty Brands

You don't have to break the bank to find some amazing beauty products! In fact, while sure i love high end makeup (who doesn't really) some of my favorite can't live without products are actually quite affordable!  I absolutely love that there are so many wonderful brands out there that create quality products at affordable prices making it easy for every beauty lover on a budget to rejoice.  For today's post, i thought it'd be fun to show you my favorite budget friendly brands. 

Pixi - you all know I'm a huge Pixi fan.  The packaging is beautiful and the products are definitely worth checking out.  I've declared my love for Pixi's Glow Tonic numerous times on the blog and for good reason.  This beauty has been a game changer for my skin!  The multibalms are also worth checking out.  As a busy mommy of twins, it's so nice to reach for a good multi-tasking product when i'm on-the-go and simply want to look awake and somewhat presentable to the world!  BTW have you entered my Multibalm giveaway?  I'm giving away the entire collection to one lucky FMM reader (open internationally).  ENTER HERE!

Colourpop has been a brand that I've loved from the second i swatched my first ever shadow!  Average prices run about $5 and the quality is insane! I'm currently obsessing over the highlighter Churro... Oh Em Gee you guys have noooo idea just how GORGEOUS it is!  You must check them out!

Sonia Kashuk is another brand I've loved for years!  Some of my favorite products include SK nail polishes (currently on my nails), the blush/bronzer combos and the toiletry bags (never leave home without them)! I also love her makeup pouches as well as the fun limited release brush sets!  

Whenever a reader or friend asks me for my favorite affordable vegan/cruelty free brand i always steer them towards Pacifica.  They have a beautiful range of quality products that are fun and innovative (I'm looking at your Pacifica deodorant wipes)!  My favorite products are the roll on perfumes (so good to toss in your purse for a quick refresh throughout the day), the nail polishes (love the color range and longevity) and their Power of Love Coconut Infused palette!  The colors are pigmented and wear beautifully.  The packaging on all of Pacifica products is also insanely beautiful so if you love great packaging like i do, you'll fall hard for this brand!

Milani has set the bar quite high for drugstore makeup.  Their eye shadows could easily stand up to some of the most expensive brands!  The packaging is sleek and very high end looking.  Their rose carved blushes are insanely beautiful.  I'd say my favorite products from this brand are most definitely the eye shadows and blushes!  They're worth every penny, look great on your vanity and won't break the bank!

Last but certainly not least NYX cosmetics has really exploded in the market lately with a huge range of innovative new launches! Their lip butters, shadows, blushes... i mean, i can go on and on.  One of the products i love so much is their eye shadow base.  It's a white cream primer base that evens out all the redness in my eye lid creating a perfect canvas for my eye shadow.  Their color correcting palette is also a great buy for the price and is comparable to some of the more expensive ones on the market.

I hope this post has given you some great options for shopping beauty on a budget!  Thank you so much for reading and be sure to enter my current Pixi Beauty Giveaway here!  Xo, Carla - FMM
