5 High-End products worth the splurge!

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m sharing a few favorite high-end, luxury makeup items that I feel are worth the big bucks! This is by no means a list of all of my favorite high end beauty items but just a few that I have been loving lately. Do share your luxury beauty favorites in the comments section below!

 

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (Rs 3000)

This is my favorite foundation and that is saying something because I’ve tried a ton of them! Its a classic liquid foundation – neither too runny nor too thick which gives medium-high coverage and a flawless natural finish. It makes my skin look amazing every time and it stays put throughout the day without oxidising or turning greasy on my skin. It photographs really well too which is why its perfect for special occasions, especially weddings. Highly recommended! Full review here.

2. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks ($37)

I couldn’t NOT mention the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks here. They are simply the prettiest lipsticks around (look at the gorgeous gold packaging!) and the formula is wonderful. The classic range is creamier while the Shine range has a glossier finish and a slightly sheerer formula. It still packs on plenty of pigment and gives a gorgeous, luscious look to the lips. The formula is buttery soft and it hydrates better than any lip balm I’ve used. It also smells like mango which happens to be my favorite fruit! If you like pinks, do check out #17 Rose in Tension. See full review here.

2. Whats your favorite drink?

 

I don’t have a favorite drink but I do like milkshakes and fruit based drinks the most! Frappe would be a close second.

3. Have you ever met a celebrity?

 

I have met a few for blogger meets/fashion week etc. The most interactive meeting was with Deepika Padukone for Fiama Di Wills. My first thoughts when I saw her were – she’s really tall, she’s really fit and has amazing skin!

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick (17) Rose in Tension : Review, Swatch, FOTD

 

For my birthday last week, I wanted to get something special for myself and I zeroed in on the YSL lipsticks. I had wanted one for a while now but for some reason or the other, I didn’t try these out. At the store, I had a difficult time picking just one shade because there are so many gorgeous shades to choose from! Since I like slightly glossy finishes, I went for the Rouge Volupte Shine range and picked a beautiful berry rose shade – Rose in Tension.

Price : JPY 3800 + tax (Rs 2250)
