Top 5 High End Buys

On Monday I did my top 5 drugstore buys. Today I'm looking at what I consider the top 5 best products to splurge for.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow

In my opinion Urban Decay has the best eyeshadows. They're crazy pigmented, blendable and creamy plus they have a wide range of  colour options. I personally love the Naked and Naked Basics Palettes but most of their individual eyeshadows are very good too. My only complaint is the steep price tag.

MAC 217 Brush

In my top drugstore buys post I recommended the Real Techniques eye brush set however the MAC 217 brush is my all time favourite eyeshadow brush. If I could only have 1 eyeshadow brush, I would pick this one every time. It applies shadow perfectly all over the lid, in the crease and is amazing for blending. If you only get one thing from MAC I highly suggest this brush. 

Anastasia Brow Wiz

I used to only use powder on my brows but everything changed when I got this baby. I find this allows me to be more precise when filling in my brows and it gives a much more natural final look. I was worried the pencil wasn't going to last long because it's fairly expensive for a very tiny amount however I've had mine for months and it's still going strong. The colour is long wearing, especially when set with a gel and the spoolie on the end is awesome.

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I honestly don't know what I would do without this product. I don't even have oily eyelids but I find wearing this primer makes a HUGE difference to the look and longevity of my eyeshadow. I've had my tube for well over a year and I'm not even halfway done so I think it's a really smart investment
and I would highly recommend it.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr Blush

I love Tarte as a brand but I especially love their blushes. Besides the fact that the packaging and design of the product is very cute, I think the colour selection, pigmentation and longevity are some of the best you can get anywhere.
