6 Beauty Brands I’ve been Wanting to Try..!

There are hundreds of beauty brands on the market nowadays. Some are very well known while others are more up-and-coming less well known brands that have equally  amazing products as the high-end ones. Today’s post is all about the brands I haven’t tried yet but have heard great things about and I am dying to try them all!

Estee Lauder

First up is the well-known brand Estee Lauder. The brand has been around since 1946 so is well established and has so many products to its name. From skincare ranges to its extensive beauty range, the brand can do no wrong. For me the most popular product I’ve constantly been hearing about is the Double Wear Foundation.  It is well known for its long-lasting staying power and flawless coverage. Retailing at between €36-€40 it is on the more expensive side but I would say definitely worth every penny. Lately I’ve been hearing many bloggers talking about the brands Extreme Volume Mascara too and the results are incredible! If anyone has tried them let me know in the comments!

Huda Beauty

Secondly, a brand that is all over my Instagram feed right now is Huda Beauty. Owned by Huda Kattan, the brand boasts a gorgeous range of beauty products that people can’t seem to get enough of and I completely understand why! If you haven’t seen any of the products then you’ve been living under a rock the last year! The eyeshadow palettes are absolutely stunning and the lip products have amazing reviews. The new ‘Desert Dusk’ palette is due out very soon and people cannot wait to get their hands on it, I’ll leave an image below and you’ll understand why! The brand also contains luxury lashes and a highlighting palette which constantly sells out so be quick to order if you like the look of the products!

Laura Geller

Laura Geller is a brand I haven’t heard too much about. I think I initially saw some other beauty bloggers rave about the brands highlighter and ever since I’ve been intrigued. The product designs are incredible, particularly the blushes, bronzers and highlighters. I definitely think the most popular product is the Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in the shade Gilded Honey given the fact that this is the one product I constantly hear mentioned. I’m definitely willing to give it a try as for €22 it’s not too badly priced.

Makeup Forever

I’m the type of person that likes to stick to the foundation I know I like. I’ve tried a number of different brands over the years and so far Nars Sheer Glow is my absolute favourite. Having said that, I’ve heard  nothing but great things about the Make Up Forever HD Foundation. It is said to give a natural finish but is medium to full coverage and comes in over 20 shades. I’ve heard all good things about the Ultra HD Stick Foundation too but I’ve never used a stick foundation before so I’m more apprehensive! As much as I love my Nars, I’m definitely going to give this brand a go soon!

For the longest time I have been hearing about Morphe eyeshadow palettes and brushes. After looking them up online I fell in love with the palettes. The brand literally cater for every shade you could ever want and their palettes are so inexpensive considering they contain 35 shadows for €25, Bargain!! I’ve heard the shadows are super pigmented and blendable, they sound like an absolute dream! I’ll hopefully get around to buying all the  palettes eventually but I think I’ll try the 35W and 35O first!

I cannot believe I haven’t tried Stila yet! The products look absolutely gorgeous and I need to try the Magnificent Metals eye shadows asap!! Absolutely everyone talked about them last season but they were constantly sold out! The hype seems to have slightly eased as now it’s a bit easier to get your hands on them but by Christmas I’m sure they’ll be sold out again! Aswell as these I’m loving the look of  Stilas range of liquid lipsticks. I’m a sucker for packaging and Stila sure know how to attract me with their gold exteriors!
