Products Worth The Price |
If there's one thing I like spending money on, it's high end make up and skincare, but when it comes to splashing the cash you can often get caught up in the hype around a product without actually contemplating whether you need it or whether it'll suit you. Through trial and error I have composed a list of products that I think are not only worth the hype, but worth the price.
Tweezerman Slant Tweezers | £20.95 | Link | Up until the end of last year I was a £1 tweezer kind of girl. I never saw the point in parting with £20 or more just for a tool that I could get for a fraction of the price. That was until Tweezerman Tweezers fell into my clutches and I truly began believing that a good pair of tweezers can change the way your brow looked. The 25 degree angle tip helps to grab each individual hair with precision without the risk of grabbing mass clumps of hair thus preventing over plucking.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette | £38 | Link | Although when you break it down, £38 isn't a lot for twelve eyeshadows, it can be a waste if you're not looking in the right direction of what Naked palette you should go for. The Naked 3 palette consists of twelve rose hued eyeshadows suitable for all skin tones enclosed in a rose gold slim metal tin that is perfect for both storing away and travelling. With a range of finishes to chose from you've got all the looks covered.
Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour - Pirate | £26 | Link | If it's got the Chanel logo on it, I'm pretty much already sold on it. The luxurious packaging and iconic logo is enough to get my inner beauty obsessed self excited, but are the products any good? Speaking from experience, this lipstick is one of the only Chanel products I've tried bar a few sample here and there, but am I impressed? Absolutely. The intense colour pay off means with one swipe of the classic, timeless red you're good to go.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm | £22 |Link | Cleansing balms have been a staple in my skincare routine since they first hit the beauty scene. I've tried and tested a fair few now, but one that has stuck with me is the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. The unscented, lightweight formula works perfectly to dissolve make up from sensitive skin, a perfect product for double cleansing. Unlike many, this tub seems to last a life time and although the £22 may seem a little steep at first, I've hardly made a dent in it compared to six weeks it took to use up The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush - Luminous Flush | £28 | Link | Even though I love Space NK, I know my purse certainly doesn't. Hourglass has become a holy grail brand for many and although I've never really got into the Ambient Lighting Powders, there was one product and shade in particular that stood out from the rest - The Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush. The pink-coral hybrid with gold undertones gives the perfect soft focus flush of colour to the cheeks without going OTT. Perfect for everyday wear and when you want to feel a little more luxurious.
Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder | £35 | Link | You know one of those products that you look at and swatch every time you go into a shop, but never actually buy? The Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder was exactly that. It's ability to define cheekbones and and enhance your complexion is no myth. Despite it being consisting a minuscule amount of product compared with other contouring palettes, it is 100% worth it. The brown, grey and red pigments are formulated together to make a perfect, natural looking medium shade that is suitable for daily use. You will certainly feel like you have £35 worth of product on your face - It truly is a must have.
