Top 10 Makeup Brands Available In India
I am staring a new series on the blog called as ‘Top 10’ where I would pick my Top 10 favorites from different categories. And since we all love makeup so much, I thought of starting my Top 10 series with a list of Top Makeup Brands in India. So lets just jump right into it. 🙂
Lakme is the first brand I could think off while making this list. It is probably the most trusted brand and I remember my Mother using it when I was a kid. It is also the first makeup brand to launch an array of skin and face products for woman in India. And it still continues to innovate with new products being launched every year.
Maybelline New York is the most popular brand with teens and beginners in makeup. It was launched way back in 1915 by T.L. It was later acquired by L’Oreal and in India it was launched by its subsidiary, L’Oreal India. One of the major factors that have helped this brand to carve its niche is being reasonably priced in spite of having an international appeal. The Maybelline Colossal range was a huge hit in India which made the brand more popular.
L’Oreal is one of the giants in the cosmetic segment in the world. The Company has been present in India for about 20 years. Today, L’Oreal India is a subsidiary of L’Oreal which is growing at a very fast rate. L’Oreal Paris is one of the trademark brands of this company. The brand is not only known for their amazing cosmetics range about also are quite famous for their Hair Care range.
MAC cosmetics does need any introduction. This is undoubtedly the most famous luxury international cosmetic brand now widely marketed and loved in India as well. I would have placed it on no. 1 position had it been very easily available and a little less priced.
Among all the international players in the cosmetic segment in India, the first one to launch was none other than Revlon in 1995. Pricing is done for the mid-level consumers as it neither too high nor too low priced.
Colorbar Cosmetics is one of the leading brands of cosmetics in India. It was founded in 2004. The brand is known for its bright peppy colours and has a number of products to add colour to nails, eyes, lips and face.
8. Elle 18:
The brand Elle 18 was launched in 1998. Elle 18 is aimed at the youth as it has bright colours along with neon shades in its products. The pricing of the products are also done keeping in mind the youth. The Elle 18 Colour Pop Liner (5ml) is priced at Rs 75.
