While I’m a massive fan of cheap makeup, sometimes a luxury makeup item just makes you feel a million… pounds? (It really doesn’t feel the same as saying a million bucks or a million dollars… but I’m British and they don’t feel right!). But I totally agree that there’s nothing more frustrating than paying £30 for something, getting it home, and then it being a little naff! So I thought I’d share with you my favourite high end makeup items I think are worth every penny!

NARS Blush in Orgasm
I mean not only have I learnt (while having this as part of my project pan) that this is just a never ending product, and so you’re definitely going to get your money’s worth… but also it’s just such a gorgeous everyday blush shade! It has the most subtle bit of glow to it that leaves you looking healthy and sunkissed and I’m just obsessed!
I mean can you beat a Mac Lipstick? While they’re arguably not the best formula out there… there’s just something about them! And I love that you can literally get any shade you want in any finish!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Such an iconic bronzer, this is the product that made me really fall in love with bronzers! It’s pigmented, easy to blend and super long lasting! There’s just something about it!
OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick
I’ve actually had two of this shade (Charmed) in the old and new packaging… and it’s such a gem! Comfortable, long lasting, natural looking and the perfect your lips but better shade! Just can’t go wrong!
Mac Studio Fix Fluid
This is such a beautiful buildable foundation! It has a lovely satin finish (at least on my combination skin) and this is the PERFECT shade match for me! I also love how this wears on my skin!
Dior Backstage Foundation
Another one of my project 10 pan products this is the foundation that never finishes… seriously I’ve been using this daily for 4 months now and there’s STILL product left (though I’m nearly there). This is the most gorgeous medium to high coverage foundation! I would 100% repurchase this when I’ve finished it… albeit in the lighter shade as this is too dark!
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
I feel like you need to know what this mascara is before you buy it… but if you’re looking for a natural, fluttery mascara that gives you good length and colour without too much volume (which is especially what I love on my bottom lashes) this is your one!
Another stunning blush formula! These just look so natural and gorgeous on the cheeks! Plus the packaging is just super cute!

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette
This feels expensive when you buy it… but you do get a bronzer, highlighter, blush and eyeshadow look all in one palette! And everything is gorgeous, blendable, easy to use and creates the most gorgeous, natural, everyday look! The bronzer in here in particular is GORGEOUS!
Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer
I’m never 100% sure why, but when I use this bronzer on my face I always notice how gorgeous my skin looks! There is something about this formula in that it looks so good on your skin! And the colour is PERFECT!
IT CC Cream
Hands down my favourite base. This is super quick and easy to apply, it gives you really good coverage without feeling heavy at all, it lasts really well on the skin and gives you an extra bit of SPF coverage! Just my favourite foundation product ever!

Vieve The Essential Palette
Oh. My. God! I am obsessed! This is the most gorgeous neutral palette ever! You have a whole host of gorgeous warm toned matte and shimmer shades with a black and a cool toned brown. I just feel like this is the perfect everyday palette, but also lets you do something a little more bold and night time appropriate too! Just love it!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette
One of the OG Warm Toned Neutral Palette… this is one of the most used palettes in my collection! The formula is just so blendable! I find they can be a little chalky once you’ve had your palette for a while (as in it’s not ageing as well as the other palettes in my collection), but for the first 1-2 years, it’s a stunner!
