Beauty x Bargains

We’re self-confessed beauty addicts here at Haute Appetite and having such a vast makeup collection can get pricey. While we love our higher end products, there are so many affordable bargain brands that have just as great quality products as the pricier stuff. Here are our top bargain brands we use on the reg!

e.l.f. Cosmetics

E.l.f. (which stands for eyes, lips and face) is one of our favorite brands. Not just as a bargain brand, but as an amazing makeup brand in general. Their mantra is to provide premium makeup for all women and they live up to it. Their prices start as low as a dollar and are mineral rich and of lasting quality. Our favorite products are their green tinged blemish control face primer, and their high definition powder.

New York Color

For trendier products and bold pops of color, New York Color is our favorite. Embodying the vibrancy of their namesake city, NYC works with New York makeup artists to produce their affordable line. Also, they constantly partner with celebs to release on-point collections we can’t wait to try. (Currently they have a line with Demi Lovato.) We love their cheek glow blush kit and their satin matte lip color.

NYX Professional Makeup

NYX is another bargain brand we’re mad about! Owned by L’Oreal, NYX has a ton of classic beauty motifs as well as trendier items that are totally affordable. They have a particularly strong contour and highlight section and with all palettes for under $30, they’re a total steal. We’re big fans of their Cream Highlight and Contour Palette and their setting spray in matte or dewy.

Makeup Setting Spray


Bellapierre focuses on being 100% all natural and specializes in mineral rich makeup. We love the fact that we can get all natural quality products without breaking the bank. With an impressive array of palettes and mineral-dense foundation that will sooth, not irritate, healthy skin, color us impressed. We’re digging their Champagne Shimmer Powder and their Color Correcting Concealer Palette.

IT Cosmetics

With skin solutions in mind, IT Cosmetics was developed by plastic surgeons to take our skin from blemished to bright. Their line is divided into different skin problems every glamazon might experience – from acne, rosacea, dark circles and wrinkles, they have us covered!. We adore their Bye Bye Under-eye Anti-Aging Concealer and their Bye Bye Redness Correcting Cream.
