Kourtney Kardashian’s latest look features a €9.95 foundation…and it’s Irish

29th Mar 2019

It seems whatever a Kardashian wears, uses and even eats goes straight to the top of our wish-lists. With some of their choices falling ever so slightly out of our budgets, it’s exciting to see something we can afford, and even better that it’s Irish.

The promotional imagery for the latest season of Keeping up with the Kardashians (it’s now on season SIXTEEN can you believe) was released this week and it sees the sisters looking as flawless as ever. Celebrity make-up artist Rokael Lizama let it slip that the foundation Kourtney was wearing was none other than Carter Beauty’s Full Measure HD Foundation. With it being long lasting and high coverage, it’s perfect for staying put under bright studio lights.

With Marissa Carter winning Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year at this year’s IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards we are not surprised to see her success further afield. Only last month Ariana Grande was wearing Carter Beauty’s Supreme Gel Liner in her music video for ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’. So it seems Marissa’s entrepreneurial skills are going global.

Carter Beauty is stocked nationwide in Ireland so is easy to get hold of, as well as great, affordable price points so you can get the Kardashian look for under a tenner. If you’re wondering which shade Kourtney was wearing? Crème Brûlée and we’re certain it’ll be sold out – so run don’t walk.



Carter Beauty by Marissa Carter launched on to the beauty scene in August 2018 and has grown exponentially since. Created by the woman behind international best-selling tan Cocoa Brown, Carter Beauty is a brand created for make-up artists and lovers alike.

Formulated by Marissa herself, Carter Beauty combines professional quality with Insta-worthiness, because what good is pretty packaging if the product doesn’t pack a punch?

Never one to do anything by halves, entrepreneur Marissa Carter launched in the Irish market with a whopping 103 make-up bag must-haves – the brand has since expanded to the UK and Canada and will be launching next month in Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Italy, Germany, Holland, Austria and Belgium.

From long-lasting, jet black gel liner to high pigment, easy to blend shadows and full coverage HD foundation, the Carter Beauty brand has something for everyone.

Just like Cocoa Brown, Carter Beauty is cruelty-free (we’re proud members of Peta’s Beauty Without Bunnies), fuss-free (no complicated techniques here), and value for money. How much? You ask? It wouldn’t be a ‘by Marissa Carter’ brand if we weren’t dishing out bang for your buck. Carter Beauty ranges from €3.95 to €14.95. Our mantra is, beauty shouldn’t leave you broke…

Carter Beauty is available in pharmacies nationwide as well as in selected Penneys stores and online at www.carterbeautycosmetics.com.
