One of my current favorite blogs to read is Sarah Loves Makeup. Sarah’s photos are amazing and she has some great product recommendations and also is a fellow peachy pink lip lover like myself. Definitely worthy of a follow!
Recently she wrote a Tag post called ‘Best of High End Brands‘ where for each high end brand that she owned, she picked out her favorite product from that brand. Only one product from each brand is allowed, which for some brands (where I have less items) is easier than others. It was fun to see what products made the cut, and so I give you my best of high end brands.
CHANEL – Ombre Matelassees Eyeshadow Palette (Holiday 2013). This was a tough decision as I really love my Chanel lipsticks too, but I remember how obsessed I was with getting this eyeshadow palette when it launched. A stunning collection of five brown toned neutrals that have a buttery texture and are a dream to apply. This is definitely one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes I own.
HOURGLASS – Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Radiant Bronze Light. One of my most recent loves (you can read my full review here), but it is honestly one of the nicest bronzers that I have ever tried, and I am obsessed with bronzers! It adds a beautiful sunkissed glow to the face which illuminates and gives dimension, as though you have had a week in the sun!
BURBERRY – Sheer Luminous Fluid Foundation. Earlier this year I had a little Burberry Haul, and this foundation was my favorite purchase. It is sheer in texture but actually gives pretty decent coverage that manages to cover my redness very well and feels extremely weightless on the skin.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY – Filmstar Bronze & Glow. This was by far the most difficult brand to decide on, due to the fact that I have quite a few Charlotte Tilbury products and they are all seriously amazing. The Filmstar Bronze & Glow (review) however, is just perfection, from its decadent packaging to the most perfect contour and highlight shades. The bronze shade has the perfect amount of warmth to it that can be used as both a bronzer and contour and the highlight shade is an amazing tone of candlelight that is just gorgeous, and always manages to perfect any makeup look.
YSL – Rouge Veloupte Lipstick in Peach Passion. This lipstick (review) is a gorgeous peachy coral that glides across the lips effortlessly. It feels very lightweight on the lips and extremely hydrating to wear. A great choice for summer!
NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard. The ultimate concealer in my opinion, I use it predominantly under the eyes as it hides dark circles and brightens incredibly well and doesn’t crease on me at all. It is great for blemishes too as its creamy texture blends into the skin well without any dryness. (Review).
TOM FORD – Lips & Boys Lipstick in Matthew. Another coral in my collection but this one is particularly special as is was limited edition and Matthew is my husbands name. Tom Ford make the most stunning lipsticks the packaging is so classy and they are beautiful to apply and feel so comfortable on the lips. I wouldn’t say no to a few more!
MARC JACOBS – New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel in Understudy. This has got to be one of my most favorite lipsticks of the moment, I have worn it so much since purchasing it a couple of months ago. The perfect peachy pink that is sheer in formulation and incredibly moisturizing on the lips. I cannot get enough of it.
I would like to ‘Tag’ any of my lovely blogger friends that would like to do this, but in particular Gemma, Laura, Kate, Annabel, Adrienne, Emily and Anouska. I cannot wait to see what your top products from your favorite high end brands are!
