Now listen, I looove a good makeup product that is affordable BUT I do agree that there are some products out there that are totally worth the splurge.
Now, I am not telling you to go out and spends tons of money when there are cheaper options out there, but if you ever have some extra money and want some new makeup products on the pricer side, then I am more than happy to suggest a few for you.
All the products in this list can be found at my favorite makeup store, Ulta.
1. A cult favorite worth the hype
This mascara was and will forever be one of my go to mascaras!
The length I get from this mascara is unprecedented. Like seriously.
It is perfect for lifting and volumizing without having to use a ton of product. Which also means that it last longer!
I have to admit, I am not a huge fan of falsies because I don’t like that the glue pulls at my real lashes, so I am always looking for mascaras that give the false lash effect, and the better than sex mascara does the trick!
Fun fact: this is the mascara I am wearing in my pic to the right, haha.
Now I know what you’re thinking ” $25 for a mascara?!”…. but I promise you it is worth it.
2. A eyeshadow palette with exquisite colors
I will be the first one to admit that I am not one to splurge on eyeshadows BUT the colors in this palette really caught my eye.
I specifically LOVE the shades filter and jam. They are so beautiful and so pigmented.
The colors go on the eye flawlessly and are extremely blendable.
One reviewer wrote: ” These shadows are amazing I use these palettes more then any others I own. There soft but not to soft so they blend like a dream. They are pigmented and long wearing. Packaging is always adorable. Color combos are fun unique.”
This is one of the most amazing eyeshadow palettes, especially for the fall.
3. A concealer you won't regret buying
Well I’m sure you have heard of this one. And for good reason!
The Tarte Shape Tape Concealer is an A-MAZ-ING concealer that smooths and brightens.
It contains hydrating ingredients such as mango seeds and shea butter.
It is amazing because it doesn’t dry out your under eye area like a-lot of other concealers. It also blends out very easily, so no caking or creasing.
It works really well in giving a firm and lifted appearance. Which we all want of course.
According to Tarte, one is sold every 12 seconds!
4. A soothing mask that makes your skin feel brand new
I love a good face masque and this is a goood one.
This masque is great for all skin types but it works wonders on dry skin. When you put the masque on, there is an amazing cooling sensation.
Once you take the mask off, your skin will be softer, brighter and glowing. After a few uses, you will notice a huge difference in your complexion.
They are currently sold out at Ulta but they have product available at the Kiehl’s website (linked below).
5. A sheer blush that makes you look naturally healthier
The sheer blush by Iconic London is one of the best liquid blushes you will ever used.
It goes on super sheer meaning its buildable to your desired look. It literally melts into your skin so it doesn’t look caked or give that “hot mess look”.
One customer wrote: Great creamy blush it’s like your own natural cheek color with a tiny pop!!! love love love I ordered another one yesterday to make sure I don’t run out. FYI put it on my lips too for a natural glow pink love”
It comes in 6 different shades so there is a blush for everyones skintone.
6. A nude lipstick that is perfect for everyday wear
MAC Matte Lipstick in the shade whirl is probably one their most popular shades!
This nude shade is a great go to for everyday use. It will compliment any makeup look as well as any outfit.
This creamy formula goes on seamlessly and dries beautifully matte.
I highly recommend exfoliating your lips before apply this lipstick, and really any matte lipstick, for a flawless application.
If you want to add depth to the color simply add a deeper colored lip liner, such as mahogany by MAC, and you will be good to go.
Otherwise you can just pair it with the MAC whirl lip liner and start your day!
