WoC Affordable Cosmetics
Black Opal ☆☆☆☆☆
I don’t even know where to start with this brand- they are amazing. I love companies that focus on deeper skinned women. Their foundation comes in about 8 different shade. Their most bought foundation is the True Color Stick which has a nice creamy formula and gives full coverage. Though this foundation is amazing I would not wear it without the Invisible Oil Blocking Pressed Powder. This powder is an amazing product that can be used with any foundation, and it especially helps with the True Color Stick. I would also recommend the Deluxe Finishing Powder in medium as a dupe to the Ben Nye Banana Powder.
Black Radiance ☆☆☆☆☆
I absolutely love the Pressed Powder from Black Radiance. The powders are great for contouring and bronzing and they are about five dollars. I haven’t tried the BB Cream myself but I’ve head some raving review on them! The BB Creams are super affordable at only about six dollars. Because I can’t give them a personal review I have linked a few: ☾ ☾ ☾
I’m not going to lie- the foundation from Iman did not impress me, but that may only be because at that time I had not realized that powder foundation does not work for me. So what I am saying is don’t knock it ‘till you researched it. They have an award winning BB Cream that is a little on the expensive side at $20.00.
I have not tried any of She Moisture’s cosmetics, but my sister did buy their foundation. In her opinion, the formula was a little too watery, but after leaving it open over night it thickened into the consistency she wanted. This is another brand that is on the higher side so I’d do my research on before buying. P.s, The foundation comes in 20 different shades. ☾ ☾
Jordana Cosmetics ☆☆☆☆☆
highly recommend the matte lipstick, lipliner, and the blushes. These items all come in many different colors and shades and are all less than $4!
I haven’t tried this brand because I just discovered it but from what I have researched it seems pretty amazing. They have dupes for Too Faced and Lime Crime, and they also offer lipstick for a dollar and some pennies. This company has so much makeup for such a great price. ☾
Nicka K New York ☆☆☆☆
Their lipsticks are only $1.49 and come in 77 shades! If it’s variety you want than it is not an issue.
Colour Pop is an up and coming cosmetic brand backed by many beauty gurus. The best part is that everything is $5!
J.Cat offers an OOC Lip Tar dupe for about $5 in 35 shades! They also have a $3 lipstick in 48 shades. ☾
