These are my preferred inexpensive European (but non-Italian) makeup products; for suggestions on Italian makeup, inspect out my series, “Best in charm From the Boot”
1. Catrice Defining blush in 040 believe Pink (€3.99)

If somebody made me try the Catrice Defining blush in 040 believe Pink after having depotted it, I’d for sure believe it was a high-end blush.

I swear, I’d bet my entire makeup collection on it! It’s that good.

Creamy as well as not in the least bit powdery, well pigmented however simple to blend, as well as long-lasting, too.

Oh, as well as here’s the very best part: it’s only €3.99!

2. Catrice Camouflage cream in 010 Ivory & 020 Light beige (€3.49)

If you’re blessed with oily skin as well as occasional hormonal areas such as this mama, then you’ll understand that liquid concealers just don’t last.

To cover those upset red zits as well as the marks they typically leave behind, I believe it’s much much better to utilize a dry-texture concealer.

In my opinion, the Laura Mercier trick Camouflage ($35) is the very best in this category, however Catrice’s Camouflage cream is available in a close second, as well as it’s just a fraction of the price.

Should you ever area a Catrice stand during your European adventures, make sure you put your paws on this great concealer.

3. Essence Long-Lasting Eye Pencils in 01 Black Fever & 02 hot chocolate ($2.49/€1.99)

Ok, I understand that you can get Essence at Ulta these days, however wouldn’t it be cooler to pick up something from this inexpensive German brand after admiring the majestic Cologne Cathedral or going to the breathtaking Neuschwanstein Castle?

My very first suggestion would be the Long-Lasting Eye Pencils in 01 Black Fever as well as 02 hot Chocolate, since I mean, who doesn’t requirement black or brown eyeliner?

These glide on very quickly as well as last amazingly well both on the waterlines as well as lashlines.

4. Essence sun Club Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 natural – Blondes/Lighter Skin ($4.99/€4.99)

Essence sun Club Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 natural is one of those bronzers that’s impossible to overdo it with, as well as that’s my preferred kind.

No patchiness, no Oompa-Loompa-ness. just a healthy-looking complexion.

Plus, if you like coconut-scented products, you’ll discover yourself opening the compact just to provide it a sniff much more frequently than you’d like to admit…

5. Essence The Gel nail polish top coat ($3.99/€3.19)

I question if Cosnova (the German business that makes Essence as well as Catrice) keeps the precise formula of the Essence The Gel nail polish top coat in a vault like Coca-Cola does with their trick recipe…

This stuff is magical!

I’m sure there’s a trick component that makes their nail polish radiate brighter than a Swarovski store as well as last longer than finals week.

6. Max element Crème Puff blush in 10 nude Mauve (£8.99)

Despite what the name suggests, the Max element Crème Puff Blushes are really powder blushes (although, the non-powdery kind), as well as are stated to be dupes for the hourglass Ambient illumination Blushes ($38).

My preferred thing about nude Mauve is that it provides me a good meaning as well as extremely subtle luminosity without interfering with the color plan of the rest of my makeup.

L-R: Essence Long-Lasting Eye Pencils in 02 hot chocolate as well as 01 Black Fever, Essence sun Club Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 Natural, Catrice Camouflage cream in 010 Ivory as well as 020 Light Beige, Catrice Defining blush in 040 believe Pink, Max element Crème Puff blush in 10 nude Mauve
7. Zoeva Cocoa blend Eyeshadow combination (€21.80)

On my eyes I’m using Bitter Start, substitute For Love, Pure Ganache, as well as subtle blend from the Zoeva Cocoa blend Eyeshadow Palette
Aaaand… I saved the very best for last. This combination is UH-MAZE-BALLS!

Compared to the products I’ve discussed so far, the Zoeva Cocoa blend Eyeshadow Palette might practically seem pricey, but €21.80 for 10 top high quality eyeshadows is still quite great in my opinion.

From the buttery texture, to the high pigmentation as well as blendability, there’s nothing I don’t like about these shadows.

The color choice is ideal for my taste (lots of warm goodness!), as well as there’s a great balance between shimmers as wca mattes (6-4).
