When it comes to high end makeup,I’ve done my research.And by research I mean shamelessly fawning all over any product to ever grace those department store shelves. Because of my incessant appetite for upscale cosmetics and my poor self control ,you are in luck! I’ve thrown together a list of five high end products that actually have a leg up on their cost effective competition.Here it is:
1.Benefit they’re Real Mascara-$23.00 and can be purchased here.
What I love: Its an all around great mascara. I really didn’t want to love this a much as I did,because lets face it $23 dollars for mascara is pretty steep in my world .It adds volume,length,and separates.And the more I used it,the more I loved it.Believe the hype ,its just that good!
2.The Balm Mari-Lou Manizer-$24.00 and can be purchased here.
What I love: This is my all time favorite highlighter. Its manages to give you a candlelit glow where ever you go! I really love how this highlights your cheekbones without making your pores look like the texture of the moon.
3.The Urban Decay Naked Palate-$50.00 and can be purchased here.
What I love:These eye shadows go on like butter baby! With mixes of golds,coppers,champagnes,and rich chocolates, you really can’t go wrong. With shades like these, who doesn’t love to be naked?
4.Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars- $18.00 each and can be purchased here.
What I love: The pigmentation in these lip gloss-lipstick hybrids is really unsurpassed. You literally need a drop to do your entire mouth. I’m just wondering how OCC is going to stay in business because I can’t imagine anyone ever running out!
5.Mac Powder Blushes-$21.00 and can be purchased here.
What I love: With classics like Peachy Keen and Pink Swoon ,and an extensive line of these one pan wonders, anyone can find a color that suits them. The formulation is a never chalky,always pigmented powder that buffs into the skin like nobody’s business!
