  • By Nneoma N.


Hey Ladies, I guess I’m not the only one out there that gets all excited about a beauty product only to see the price tag and gbam! my face falls flat. 😦

I literally cringe when I see beauty products retailing at ridiculous prices. I mean do you have to rob a bank to look like Wizkid’s ‎Caro? 🙂

So today, I bring to you 5 inexpensive amazing beauty steals, that will give those expensive beauty brands a run for their money.

Starting from the bottom to the top, At 5 we have:


According to Black opal “this hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, translucent powder, sets make-up beautifully at bay throughout the day. Formulated with color pigments that help enhance your natural skin tone,this ultra -fine jet miled powder also gives your complexion a silky finish. Oil free and designed for all skin types.
Now you want a setting powder that’s not dry,not shiny, shimmery in a good way, then go for this. I got hooked when i saw a friend use it and since then I can’t let go.

You can get this powder for below N2000‎ at any makeup outlet.

Tip: Visit a reliable ‎cosmestic outlet to get an original.



You know what’s great about this kit?! It has a matte highlighter, contour and a shimmery bronzer all for N 3500. With a matte highlighter,  you don’t need a setting powder. How great is that?!

Tip: A little goes a long way


According to Chapet, “these medicated protective lip conditioner is for everyday, all purpose use. Its non-waxy formula moisturizes, soothes and protects your lips”

Gone are the days when you slap on a lipgloss that just coats the top of your lips without hydrating it. For soft (dare we say kissable lips), you need a LIPS BALM, and at N100 this all purpose lipbalm is a MUST HAVE!

Another balmstastic news about this, It makes for a great lip foundation when you’re trying to achieve the ever so popular  matte lip finish.

Tip: For a softer, sensuous lip I would recommend applying a generous coat on your lips before you sleep over night.

This has got to be the queen of lipsticks right now. Do I hear tsk tsk?? Well doubt no more. These lipstains are amazing and for ONLY N700!  It’s no wonder I’ve got so many tubes, All in different  vibrant colors, and what’s even more amazing is that they stay on all day without touching up. This is great for when you have an occasion like a wedding.

They come with a generic applicator that makes it easier for coating.

Tip: I would recommend using a chapet balm before applying the lipstain to avoid it being glued to your natural lips. You see ,chapet still got your back. 




Now for the Numero UNO of all BEAUTY STEALS!! at number 1 we have (drumroll please)




According to LA PRO Conceal, “this long-wear concealer is resistant, offers opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture”. This concealer camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. It provides complete natural looking coverage, evens skin tone, covers dark circles and minimizes fine lines around the eyes. This blendable and buildable ‎formula provides the ultimate, customizable coverage. ”

Well need I say more? This product is super amazing and is gaining massive positive ‎reviews from makeup gurus everywhere. If makeup artists love it, then I Love it! With it’s price (varies from vendor to vendor) and quality, this product is the holy grail of beauty steals!

Tip: Even though it says concealer, this product makes for a good foundation. Buy one your colour and another 2 shades darker for easy contouring.


Well there you have it! 5 Fabulous Beauty Products for Less than N4, 500 naira, who says you can’t look good while on a budget? 🙂
