4 Beauty Products For The Budget Conscious

Whether you are a student with limited budget or saving up for that dream vacation, you don’t need to sacrifice looking good as these four products will deliver goodness without hurting your wallet.


The Face Shop's Power Long Lasting Sun Cream 

Part of the Natural Sun Eco Range, The Face Shop's Power Long Lasting Sun Cream is primarily a sunblock but it also works well as a makeup base. Its non-stick formula is very ideal for the hot weather and keeps your makeup intact as it effectively controls sebum production so you don’t have to worry about sweat and oil disintegrating your on-fleek face makeup! 

Best thing about it, its tinted color can also function as a sheer foundation, just right for that sunscreened but no makeup look. This multifunctional product retails for S$29.90.

Etude House Play 101 4-Way Multi Brush

If you don’t feel like buying too many eye makeup brushes or just want to have a handy brush you can bring every day in your pouch, the Etude House Play 101 4-Way Multi Brush is an ideal choice. It’s a Blending, Edge Liner, Smudge, and Gradation brush all in one. All you have to do is change the ends depending on your needs. 

With that in your purse, you don’t have to worry about having to tag along four brushes. Best thing about it all? It’s affordable at S$17.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Crème

Lip crèmes are all the rage now and one of our favourites has got to the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Crème. It has a comfortable texture that glides easily on your lips, doesn’t smudge, and holds well even after eating. This is available in Singapore via online retailers for around S$13 (shipping not included).
Honey and Sugar Jelly Body Scrub

Need a well-deserved body scrub at home? Then indulge with Skinfood’s Honey and Sugar Jelly Body Scrub! The texture of this scrub is similar to petroleum jelly with sugar granules. 

And if you think it might be too abrasive on your skin, don’t be intimidated because the granules actually feel gentle on the skin due to the jelly-like consistency of the product. It also isn’t sticky when rinsed and leaves your skin feeling smooth and fresh. Priced around S$12 to S$15 at, this 200g scrub is a treat to dry and flaky skin.
