Each country has a preference for a makeup style, after all, the beauty traits change a lot depending on place in the world and cosmetics serve as allies to value what we like most. As each corner of the planet has different priorities and needs, whenever I travel I know a huge variety of new products.
In Russia, which is our next destination, makeup in general values the look a lot. The Russians bet on darker and more striking shadows and lots of mascara. When the eyeshadow is more neutral, they still put on a darker lipstick to add color to the makeup. In Moscow there are incredible stores not only for makeup, but also for skin care products. I made a list with my favorites and I’ll tell you what they are 😉
If you like organic and super natural cosmetics, you will surely love Natura Siberica. The brand is Russian and the name was inspired by Siberia, a region closely linked to nature. The products are made with Siberian herbs and plants and each has unique components.
Natura Siberica products are currently well known in England, Germany and France, that is, they are really good quality goods. In addition to makeup, they sell skin and body care items, as well as a line designed especially for men!
Another brand originally Russian and with very original products is PROMAKEUP. Everything is produced locally and the goods are mainly aimed at more professional makeup artists, although anyone can buy. The brand promises to combine high technology and multifunctionality, two things that are essential when it comes to beauty.
One of the most characteristic items of Russian makeup is the collection of metallic eyeshadows, which are a hit with residents of the region. PROMAKEUP does not have any brand-specific physical stores, but you can find products in some locations. If you are interested in knowing what they are, just click here.
Pro Cosmetic is best known for being an online makeup store, but it also has some physical units in Moscow. They curate products and sell different brands in the cosmetics sector – most of them are new to us. There you will find a bit of everything, so if you are not looking for anything in particular, stopping by the store is a good thing. Who knows, you may not find an interesting product to test, right?
If you are looking for a good brand that has a fair price, be sure to go to Inglot. She is of European origin and specializes in makeup. There are so many products that you are even lost. One of the advantages of having a wide variety of goods is that it is easier to find something about your skin tone or the color and texture you like best.
Another cool thing that Inglot says to provide on the website is the composition of the products. They contain vitamins, oils, moisturizers and other elements that do not harm the skin and still bring several benefits. To give you an idea of how interesting the store is, their shade has 50 shades available!
L’Etoile is a store dedicated to the sale of perfumes, cosmetics and skin care. In addition to its own brand products, it sells imported ones. One of the things I loved the most was the skin masks, all from Korea. I even made a post on where to find these masks in NY!
Most of the products you will find in the store are from super renowned brands such as Dior, NARS and Chanel. It is the perfect opportunity to buy this type of more expensive product at a lower price than that of Brazil, in addition to finding a selection different from the one we know here.
There are a lot of cool stores to visit there, right? When you go to Moscow, try to go to at least one of them to try some product and discover new brands, I promise you will not regret it 🙂
