I have never heard of any.... though a search shows that there are a lot of German based cosmetic companys... Germany Cosmetics Industry - Deutschland Cosmetics Export and Import and after reviewing the list.... I still have never heard of any of them.

Couldn´t agree more. Milka is amazing, and every foreigner I gave some Milka as a gift has loved it and begged me to bring more next time

In terms of makeup I can recommend:

Essence nail polishes (cheap, come in many colors, not bad quality for the low price) and other nail stuff. Essence can be found exclusively at DM drugstores and Müller stores

Nivea (drugstore) is an overall descent brand for makeup. Their entire skincare stuff is descent as well.

Astor (drugstore) has some descent nail polishes and mascara. Haven´t tried anything else though.

Artdeco is a pretty good brand in general, and so is Catrice from what I hear (both can be found at Douglas stores and are priced between drugstore and high end brands). Both have very nice nailpolishes as well.


The big drugstore brands (Maybelline, L´Oreal, Rimmel) are more expensive compared to the US. Especially L´Oreal has almost reached MAC prices in the last few years! They sometimes carry a few products that aren´t available in the US, but I would just skip those.

Oh, and Bebe is another skincare line (drugstore) that´s pretty good quality for the low price. But it´s marketed towards teenagers


If you´re into skincare you can check out Biotherm (Douglas, Marionnaud).
And European sunscreens rock in terms of UVA protection (La Roche Posay is the best for that, found at any pharmacy). Vichy, La Roche Posay and Eucerin are all terrific pharmacy brands!

Isn't Kryolan from Germany? Or Tera del Sol?

Kryolan has good products from what I've read online. And Tera del Sol makes these baked products that rival MAC's mineralized skinfinishes.

Kryolan can be found in Germany, but not sure where...specialty theater makeup stores?
And I haven´t heard of Tera del Sol before, but baked powders sound niiiiice!

Neither do I... But from blogs and such, Kryolan has actual stores there. And on their webstite there are numbers and addresses by city. So I guess they would have info.

As for Tera del Sol, I have no idea if you get it at perfume shops, supermarkets, stores or whatever.

I just figured I'd throw brands I've seen mentioned as German out there.

We sell Milka chocolate at the Target I work at in the "fancy" candy section. They consider it fancy since it is hard to find here. I'm in Southern California.

Get some essence. It's drugstore make-up, evertime my family goes I make sure they bring me essence mascara --- it's almost exactly like my diorshow mascara for about 8 euros

Hey!

I´m new here and I live in Germany. I can definetely recommend everyone some really good Make Up Brands. I always try to get to know different brands, on one hand I buy different brands and on the other hand I get a monthly Beauty Box with different Make Up products and brands.

My favourite german brands are:

 

Dr. Hauschka (natural cosmetics), especially face products

Alverde, really not expensive drug store brand also tih natural ingredients

Catrice, drug store brands with amazing nailpolishes, lipsticks and eyeshadows (they also have kind of dupes for MAC Satin Taupe and Club.

Essence has also great and cheap products like nailpolishes and eyeshadows. They usually don´t cost more than 2 Euros.

Hi all,

 

I hope it's OK to revive an old thread.

 

I'm traveling in Vienna and Berlin this month and was wondering if anyone has recommendations for makeup and/or skincare products I should look into (preferably things I can't get in the US, though if something is amazing but I would have to pay way more to get it in the states, I would love to hear about it).

 

I've already done some research, and the top products recommended have been Essence (particularly their gel eyeliner), Catrice (nail polish has been popular, as have eyeshadows and lipsticks), Alverde, Art Deco, Rival de Loop's eyeshadow primer (been hearing a lot of good things about this), Bourjois foundations and eyeliners, Bioderma Solution Micellaire, and Kiko.

 

I know some of these aren't German brands, but as long as I can get them in Vienna and Berlin, I'm fine.

 

I'm also hoping to get some Embryolisse (though I'm not sure if the price here would be better than what I could get at home), and I've heard great things about European sunscreens.

 

Anyone have any opinions on the brands and products I've found? Or can recommend other things I should look for?

 

Thanks a bunch!
