Following on from my High End Flawless Base post, this is the second edition based on eyes. These products are definitely luxury items and that is why I have given my honest opinion on all these products!
Lancome Grandiose- £24.50
I received this product at as a gift for my birthday recently, I would not have tried this product otherwise because this is at the high end of my price range. This product is my Holy Grail mascara! The packaging itself is stunning, the wand is curved for optimum coverage of the lashes, in addition the mascara does not leave a clumpy look. I always use eye lash curlers before applying my mascara but that is not necessary with this mascara and it both curls and lengthens the lashes.
Benefit Roller Lash – £19.50
For a slightly cheaper alternative to the Lancome mascara, the new benefit mascara is a fantastic alternative. With a similar formula it allows for lashes to be extended and curled. It works incredibly well for both bottom and top lashes with its ‘hook n roll’ brush to lift the lashes whilst keeping them separated. I don’t think it gives as much of a full look and voluminous look as the lancome but is a worthwhile purchase.
By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Frozen Quartz – £29.00
This product is definitely a luxury product not only due to the price but the shadow stick itself is incredible. Its creamy texture makes for an easy application across the lid, all these shadows can be used by themselves or with additional powder shadows. Due to the creamy formula these products do not last that long and for the price it would be an expensive repeat purchase but for occasional use it would be ideal.
MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl – £16.00
One of the most versatile products in my makeup bag, as it can be used as both a highlighter and an eyeshadow. I tend to use mine as an eyeshadow primer covering the entire lid up to the brow bone. Using the product in this way allows it to act both as a highlighter, a shadow and retains my eye look for longer. This product is deceivingly small in size but I can assure you that even with every day use it lasts for a very long time.
MAC Vanilla Pigment – £16.00
Vanilla Pigment is definitely worth the money! I use this eye shadow as a multi-functional product (just like the pearl base): brow bone highlight, an inner corner highlight and sometimes use it as a cheek bone highlight. Unfortunately it is not a compact eye shadow meaning if you are a little clumsy you lose the product and it makes a bit of a mess. Nevertheless, I have had this product for a very long time now, using it frequently, and it still looks brand new.
