Budget Monday : Fall lips Look | Rs 1000/$20 Challenge


Hey everyone!

Today I’m doing a Rs 1000 ($20) makeup challenge that has been doing the rounds on youtube/blogosphere. I decided to a classic fall lip look for this challenge – fresh dewy skin, lined eyes and a bold deep lip.

Products used for this look :


  • Maybelline Colossal Kajal : Rs 150
  • Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara : Rs 330 (purchased for Rs 180 from Vellvette.com)
  • Maybelline BB Cream : Rs 199
  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish lipstick Cutting Edge : Rs 215


Challenge done in Rs 744 or $13.8!!


[note color=”#FFE4C4″]I started by applying the Maybelline BB cream all over the face, concentrating on areas that need more coverage – under eyes, jaw line blemishes etc. Since my skin is feeling a little dry lately, I skipped compact. But if I had used one, I would have chosen Lakme Rose Powder (Rs 90). I next lined my upper lash line with Maybelline Colossal Kajal and softened the line with a cotton bud. I used the product that had transferred to the bud to add some shadow to the lower lash line. I then applied Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara to the upper and lower lashes.

To add some dewy color to my cheeks, I used the Rimmel lipstick in Cutting Edge and applied/blended a tiny amount using my fingertip. Lastly, I applied the lipstick to the my lips directly from the tube.

I almost used a VOV pigment (copper shade, Rs 75) but I liked the way the look had turned out so skipped that.


Hope you liked the look! Let me know your comments below!Β [/note]

      Hey Natasha, you can buy Rimmel from Parcos store at Infiniti Malad. Parcos is on the Ground floor, Rimmel is the last counter in the corner there.

      Hey, I got the BB cream from Malaysia. You can try out Maxfactor, they used to have a nude kohl (I saw it some time back). Most brands in India don’t make nude kohls. If you want a white one, you can get it in Rimmel and Oriflame.
