Hey guys welcome back to another Wednesday Beauty post. I think of myself as a pretty equal opportunity beauty buyer, I love finding little gems at the drugstore as much as I enjoy trying out some more expensive ones. Todays post though will be all about those “high-end” products, the products that have stood the test of time for me and I am confident in recommending regardless of their price tag. Enjoy!
Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Primer (38$) This product I was undecided if I should or shouldn`t include mostly because I have not tried that many of the other more expensive primers on the market right now. Still it is a product I use religiously and one that comparing to some of the other raved about primers out there (like the Hourglass Veil Primer or the Guerlain Pure Radiance Primer ) has a more realistic price point. This is a smoothing primer so if you struggle with the texture of your skin I could not recommend this primer more, it really makes such a difference in the look of my foundation.
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation (39$) The main makeup product I like to invest in is foundation. I am a huge believer that the base is the most important step in any makeup routine. The reasons I chose this foundation in particular, is firstly I think this will work for most skin types, and secondly as a fan of medium to high coverage this foundation I feel like is both really good coverage but somehow manages to feel light on the skin. I also wanted to add that as someone who has really dry skin I was so frustrated that there wasn`t a good option for a high coverage foundation that could work on dryer skin until this one.
Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer (34$) If you need a heavy-duty concealer both in staying power as well as coverage than you definitely need this in your life. Honestly I never want to be without this gem of a product. For every bump or huge hormonal zit this is my go to, it honestly works miracles .
Chanel Les Beiges Powder (58$) Now for probably the most princessy product in this post , the Chanel Les Beiges Powders aren`t something you need in your makeup routine necessarily but if you do want to treat yourself to a product that will make you feel like a million bucks every time you take it out of your bag to touch up that this is for you. It is also a really great product, extremely finely milled with a finish that will take away shine while still leaving a perfectly glowy and healthy look to your skin.
Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto (36$) A pretty new product both in the market as well as for me , but one I fell in love with. Again I will admit this isn`t a product you necessarily need in your routine but if you want a treat as well as a beautiful and easy product to use look into this one. I also did a full review on it which I will link here if you want to know more.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liners (19$) I started using liners for my entire lip about a year ago , and the reason I like using them is because I want as much lasting power and I find liquid lipsticks too drying on my lips. The longest lasting of all the liners I tried are these Aqua Lip`s from MUFE , I also think they have a stunning color selection and the price isn`t too crazy (about the same as MAC).
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (23$) As far as mascaras go I am a huge fan of the drugstore ( Maybelline have some of the best ones in my opinion ) . Still I do love me some big lashes so if I feel like treating myself, my favorite is this one by Too Faced. It gives me pretty much the same effect as falsies do ( I am blessed with some amazing lashes to start with) and I also love that it doesn`t smudge on me which most mascars do.
Well I hope you found this post interesting and I would love to know what some of your favorite high-end makeup products are, I mean Christmas is coming up and I do need to start thinking about my wish list, so help me out!!!
