Quality doesn’t always have to cost an arm and a leg. This is the philosophy that the well-loved makeup brand Thin Lizzy successfully embodies.

I say well-loved because in its over ten years of existence, Thin Lizzy has gained legions of loyal fans. The reason is simple: their products are incredible, and yet don’t cost a queen’s ransom.

Let’s start with the 6 in 1 Professional Powder. Imagine one (one!) compact replacing your eyeshadow, blusher, lipstick, contour, bronzer, and body and leg bronzer. If your schedule is near as hectic as mine, then this is a lifesaver.

The full kit comes with two compacts, two brushes made of natural bristles, two tubes of strawberry-scented lip gloss, two eye pencils, plus an instructional DVD. That last part spells a whole lot of fun: I can imagine spending hours watching the videos and trying different looks on myself.


Thin Lizzy’s Mineral Foundation, on the other hand, is incredibly good for the face in more ways than one. As a makeup, it’s light but can build up according to what you need. You can start with a barely-there dusting for an every day look, but can gradually add layers on top of it for more coverage (for, say, an evening affair). You can choose from a wide variety of shades for a perfect match.

This foundation is actually very nourishing, too. It’s got no perfumes or preservatives that can irritate sensitive skin, plus it’s got zinc oxide that has anti-inflammatory properties. The SPF 15 also protects you from sun damage.


Last but not the least, I’m a fan of the All-Day Flexi Mascara. First of all, there’s no clumping: its unique formulation encases each lash individually like mini tubes! This makes for even coating which makes your lashes look natural.

Even better, removal is a breeze. Just moisten your lashes with warm water, wait 30 seconds to let the adhesives dissolve, and then gently wipe it off with tissues or even your bare hands. The mini tubes will then easily slide off! This is great because there will be no tugging around the delicate eye area.
