I was originally going to call this ‘High End Makeup Worth The Money’, however, I feel like very few products are good enough to justify a super high price tag. Because, lets face it, the drugstore has some incredible products in it. But, I wanted to give some love to my high end makeup, because I feel like I spend all my life talking about my more affordable products.
One category of products I am seriously lacking is Foundation, I am actually really struggling to find a high end foundation that I really want to spend the money on… let me know in the comments if you have any glowing recommendations for a medium-high coverage foundation!
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer – now this is a seriously high coverage concealer – literally, it covers everything! This is a perfect match for me, so it works amazingly. I’ve hit pan on this, and so I will 100% repurchase this when it actually runs out!
Smashbox Contour Kit – I remember when I bought this, Boots had a promotion on where you got bonus points when you spent xx amount on Smashbox. I didn’t really know what I was going to think about this, all I knew is that I was yet to find a bronzer/contour shade that I really love. However, this was it. The contour shade is absolutely perfect! Not too light/dark, or warm/cool, just perfect!!! I don’t use the other shades much though…
Benefit Hoola Bronzer – Oh what a classic. This is just a mini, because I wasn’t sure if I would like it. However, I LOVE it. If I’m not using it as a bronzer, I’m using it as an eyeshadow – seriously, it’s the perfect crease colour.
Model Co Cosmopolitan – A huge blusher of a natural.. well blush colour. I love this for everyday.
Benefit Gimme Brow – This was my fool proof brow product for many months when I didn’t actually know what I was doing. And, even now, it’s the perfect option for everyday.
Mac Eyeshadow Palette – I never used to get any use of out this palette, and I still don’t think they’re worth £10 each! However, there are 4 shades out of this palette that I’ve been using a lot recently, and that I have completely fallen in love with; Amber Lights, Cork, Antiques, and Swiss Chocolate.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara – This is one of only two mascaras that I have ever repurchased. I don’t use it as much since I discovered the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. However, it’s still one of my favs. Gives volume, length and definition.
Nails Inc Nail Polishes – I actually have more than 3 of these. However, every Nails Inc Nail Polish I have ever tried has been incredible! I love their Nail Polishes so much! They apply in 2 coats, come with a super shiny finish, and last days!
Now, onto lipsticks. My high end lipstick collection may be limited, but I end up wearing one of them everyday day (more or less).
Mac Lipsticks – At £15.50 they’re actually not that expensive, but they are by far my favourite lipsticks. Of all time! The three I currently own are Faux, So Chaud and Hot Gossip and they cover all angles. Just need a berry colour now!
Elizabeth Arden Iced Grape – The perfect transitional colour, super comfortable, long wearing, pigmented. And I love it!
Christian Dior Diva – I actually hate the packaging of this lipstick! However it is a super pigmented, bright, in your face red. And it’s beautiful!
Let me know your favourite high end makeup, because sometimes we all just love a splurge product!
