High End Makeup Collection

While I don't have the biggest makeup collection, I have collected quite a few things from the beauty counters so I thought I would share my collection. When I say high end, I mean things you wouldn't be able to purchase in Superdrug or things from a beauty counter or department store.  Most of my high end collection is lip products and I am totally okay with that!

When I want to buy a luxury makeup item, I usually go for a lip product. So I have lipsticks from Illamasqua, MAC, Chanel, YSL and Urban Decay to name a few. I have a couple of lip oils from YSL and Lancome and a few glosses from NARS and Dior. My favourite lip products at the moment are the Lancome Juicy Shakers and the Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Sheer Obsessed. The packaging of the UD lipstick is absolutely stunning. I have just one lip liner which is from Charlotte Tilbury in the shade Pillow Talk. This lip liner is so comfortable on the lips and always makes my lips much bigger and fuller. Dior is my favourite brand of lip products from the high end, my two favourite products are the Lip Maximiser Gloss and the Lip Glow in Lilac which was a limited edition shade I believe. 

I have a few palettes but I know that my collection is going to grow this year because I have found them to be such a good investment. I have two palettes from Urban Decay, the Naked 3 and the Naked Smoky palette. Both palettes have a great selection of shades and are very pigmented - you can't really go wrong with Urban Decay Eyeshadows! I have two high end mascaras which I am using at the moment, the Benefit Roller Lash and the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes - both are brilliant if you like long lashes. I have a Benefit Blush Palette from a few Christmas' ago and I have used it every day since! I will definitely have to buy one of these holiday season if they do one again because I have hit pan on so many of the shades. I have a gorgeous palette from Tarte which has a few eyeshadows, a highlighter and a blush included. I only have a few high end cheek products. I have two from NARS, one is the blush in Sin which is my favourite blush for Winter. The other is the Duo Intensity in Fervor which has two of the prettiest blush shades. I also have theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer which is possibly the best highlighter. Ever. 

The last few high end items I have in my collection are all for the face! I must admit that I find more expensive foundations and concealers to work much better on my skin. I have been loving the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation and the MAC Prolong Wear Concealer for a fuller coverage base. One of the newer products to my makeup collection is Benefit Shy Beam. I was a little nervous about purchasing this because I had a reaction to High Beam but so far so good! This is a nude pink matte highlighter which I think would be better suited towards paler skin tones. I have actually been using this under my eyes to brighten and I have been loving it for this. 

What are your favourite high end makeup products?

  1. So many gorgeous items. My favourite high end makeup products are the original UD Naked palette and their Naked 3 as well as their Gwen collab eyeshadow palette (I am admittedly a little addicted to UD shadows). I also love the Makeup Forever HD setting powder and Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer, Lotus Pink blush and Caviar Eyeshadow Sticks. The By Terry Mascara is my favourite holy grail mascara too. Such a cool post and great images x

  3. My newest addition to my high end make up is the Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette by Charlotte Tilbury. I'm so happy I got this as I've been using it every single day. The Benefit blush palette is a much loved product in my collection, I only had 1 or 2 blushes before I got it, my favourite is Rockateur. As for foundation I love the finish of the Dior Airflash but I get shiny pretty quick. My all time favourite mascara is the Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte and their eye shadows are highly pigmented as well. I own the Smoked eyeshadow palette by UD but the shades are so dark that I barely use it. Yesterday I went to Sephora and picked up the Kat von D Everlasting liquid lipstick in Lolita and it's all I hoped it would be. I could ramble on for ages, sorry about that. I really enjoy reading your posts <3
