On a normal work day you’d find me running around with hardly any makeup (as in just moisturiser, kajal and lip balm; no lipstick, no eye make-up, not even a BB cream) ‘coz I’m not really a make-up person. But then, I do own all those basic components like a BB, a foundation (cream and powder), a contour highlight and a blusher palette for those “Dressy days” …!! 😉 M.A.C. and NYX happen to be my favourite brands (now cometh the twist!!).
Just last month Romwe launched a makeup brand NYN!!! (Not sure if it’s their signature brand for Make-up) Sounds much like NYX doesn’t it?? I initially thought this was NYX ‘coz the font and branding looks very similar (I can say exactly the same). Therefore was shocked at the price it was available at. Upon further scrutiny I found that this was NYN. (Much to my disappointment!!) But then, I was tempted to try out the products ‘coz they were available at a throw-away price. So I bought the NYN Matte Foundation Powder & NYN – Contour ‘n Highlight Palette.
Well here’s a comparison, between the NYX Matte Powder Foundation that I already had and the NYN that came in yesterday. I’m sure you’d understand my confusion.
To my surprise the caption on the ‘Matte Powder Foundation’ also read the same as on NYN !!!
Though the product looks good, the question is “Will Generic make-up brands like these beat the branded ones?” We’ll find out soon in my next post.
Here’s me Signing off with a question for you:
“Have you come across such really good copies of Makeup Brands? If so have you tried them?”
Leave me your comments. 🙂
