High-end products that are worth the splurge.

Hello darlings

I try to make this blog budget friendly as i don't have a lot of money to spend on lots of high end makeup, i dunno about you but i'd rather spend it on food! I started this blog while i was at university and i was on a budget then and now i'm moving into my new house with a baby again i'm on a budget. But if someone wants to give me a million pounds i'd be very happy! But saying that i have treated/been treated to a couple of high end/luxury products over the years and i thought it would be useful to create a post about the ones that have stood out and are worth the splurge.  
Urban Decay Naked Palettes. These palettes are a huge blogger favourite, and why not they are amazing! They are some, if not the most pigmented eye shadows i have ever used. They are creamy, blend wonderfully and are long lasting. Urban decay have come out with palettes that contain every colour you could possibly need. They start at £22, the Naked 2 palette pictured is £38.50. 

Kat Von D Eye Shadow Palette £37.00. This is the only product i've got from Kat Von D, this palette was a 22nd birthday present from my partner Will and i love it so much. Kat Von D makeup is cruelty free! Which is brilliant and i'm so happy that a brilliant palette like this can be achieved without testing on animals, it shows it can done so other brands should take note! Perfect selection of neutral shades. It says 12 matte eye shadows but i'd say there was 10 as two do have a little shimmer. Which are great for brow bone. The shades are split into 3 quads, L to R, neutral, cool, warm. Each quad contains a base, a contour, a define and highlighter shade. But you can mix and match the quads to create your own looks.

Stila's Eyes are the windows to the soul palette £30.00. I love Stila cosmetics, i remember purchasing this as a treat for myself when i handed in a particularly hard essay in Third year. I'd said to my self if i finish it and get a good grade then i'd treat myself, and voila la here it is. The packaging is so beautiful and a little piece of luxury to me. Great selection of everyday colours which match any skin tone and makeup look. Definitely an all round brilliant palette.

Mac Lipsticks £16.50. who in the beauty community hasn't got a mac lipstick, especially a nude shade? They are a firm favourite among us and of course they are very good quality. Mac lipsticks come in every shade and finish you can imagine so you can hardly go wrong!
NUXE Rev De Miel £9.50. This is most luxurious lip balm i have even owned, i got this in my Feel Unique Beauty Calender at Christmas. Its like a little hug for your lips. Its so creamy and smells wonderful, like oranges. I wouldn't recommend wearing this as a everyday product, its more of a mask that is best applied at night or as a treat during a pamper day/evening.  

Vichy Aqualia serum £25.00. This serum looks and feels much more expensive than it is, i think this is down to the bottle. This serum is great for dry skinned girls, it so hydrating and moisturizing. It leaves you skin so silky smooth. Sometimes spending a little more on your skincare can have its benefits. I really want to try more from this range as i was so impressed by this!

Ole Henriksen truth sugar glow polishing mask £38.00 This is the last product i have to share with you today. I only have the 15g sample of this Ole Henriksen product, full size is 100g. This product provides a deep cleanse, smoothing and brightening purposes. Its a very multi purpose product which is fantastic. This again isn't an everyday product, its a treat, something for a pamper day or once a week at most. Which is great which means it will last a long time, making it worth the price. 

I'd love to know what are some of your favourite high end products?

  5. Love this post. Yes, I remember how crazy excessive I felt when I first started using Reve De Miel lip balm after using Carmex for years. Now a few years on, Reve De Miel is a staple and so sooooo worth the splurge xxx

  6. MAC just do consistently good lipsticks don't they! I love a splurge on some expensive makeup.
