Top 18: Best Makeup and Beauty Products under Rs.100 in India with Reviews, Price List
Most of us on day to day basis, prefer to use make-up which is affordable and accessible. Of course, our vanity boasts of our favourite brands, and I know the time, energy and monetary investment we make to buy makeup. Be it, high end or budget/drugstore. When I say budget, it can be a broad term. Each one of us define our own minimum and maximum spending on our purchasing power. So, am going to try and give you a list of the best beauty and makeup products in India that come under Rs.100 mark, and should be pocket friendly for us all. The products mentioned are available online with decent discounts making them very affordable.
I have to say here that my main criteria for picking these products are their availability and price point. So, without any further ado, here are my most used and loved under 100-rupee makeup, available in India.
List of Beauty and Makeup Products under Rs.100 in India
Lakme Radiance Compact Powder: Best Compact under Rs.100
Drum roll please, for the first one on my list. This is the Lakme Radiance Compact Powder. Medium to light coverage, helps to set the foundation, and also comes for inr 100 only. It comes with a puff, and a in-built mirror.
Lakme Rose Loose Powder: Best Loose Powder under Rs.100
Priced at Rs.80, the Lakme Rose Loose Powder takes the second place. Similar to the above, it is used to set your foundation but this gives a radiance to the face. Best part is that it keeps the face looking non-oily for quite a few hours. Unlike those white loose powders, this pink toned powder, works well to not pale the skin.
Lacto Calamine has been such a staple in my life, since a very young age. My grandmother swore by it (may her soul rest in peace) and I have benefited from it that it’s one of my holy grail beauty products. But, today we look at it as a makeup product and not just as a skin care one. Comes in a range of sizes, these tinted lotions work very well when mixed with a BB cream or a foundation, to give it a good matte finish, keeping the skin shine free all day long, but it gets my brownie points for unclogging pores and keeping the skin safe from breaking out. Priced at 45 for a travel pack
Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation: Best Liquid Foundation under Rs.100
Lakme Perfecting Liquid Foundation – I think I speak for all, when I say, this is the first foundation a girl starts with. You can buy this one from drugstores, chemists, departmental stores, supermarkets, online, including the medium sized ‘mom and pop’ shops. Available in the widest range for skin tones, this foundation costs inr 99 for a 27ml bottle. Looks quite cute in a glass bottle, easy to carry and therefore, handy for travelling too.

I love me some nail paint. Clean, trim and shaped nails coated with your favourite colour lipstick can never go wrong. And, now that can be very budget friendly too.

At Rs.65, you get this water resistant and black as night kajal. It may not be as smudge proof, if you have oily eyelids, but for the price it stays on for a good 4 to 5 hours on me. Glides on smoothly for a velvety, glossy finish without tugging on the skin and is even easy to apply on the water line.

This is the HG bb cream for a lot of Indian girls. The reason its better than the other bb creams in the Indian market is the good coverage it provides. So if you are fair to medium toned then try this bb cream out and it would replace your daily foundation. The small tube comes at Rs.75 online.
Most of these products have detailed reviews and swatches on VNA so do click on the links. Odd number of products, but these are the ones I really thought was worthy of making to this list. Mainly because, I have at some point or the other used them all. Some of them, I still use, mostly as part of my handbag makeup essentials, or to be used before I rush out to run errands for the house. Used them, liked them and listed them! Hope they will come in handy for all of you, as well. I think most of us have used all or some of them, at some point or the other. I am just refreshing them for you, today. Do let me know any other budget makeup items, I should try. I would love to do so.
