Top 3 High End Makeup Brands

Monday, 25 April 2016


Like most makeup-addicts, I have a decent makeup collection and over the years I have found some great brands that I will always turn to.

MAC

Now I am a huge fan of MAC makeup. I love the packaging, quality and it was the first "high-end" makeup brand I ever tried. My Mum bought me a black eyeliner from them when I was 13 and I instantly fell in love with it. I have never tried a lipstick from any other brand that I have loved as much as I love MAC lipsticks. The formula is amazing, the colours are amazing and they smell amazing.  BUT.....it really does anger me that MAC tests their products on animals. What is up with that MAC?! It's 2016 you dont need to test on animals anymore. And that is why I rarely buy anything from MAC now. Most of my purchases were done before I knew much about animal testing. But the day they stop testing on animals, I will be running to MAC to buy everything & anything I've been lusting over as I know thousands of other people will be. Click here to see my MAC haul. 

Too Faced

Too Faced- OH you lovely brand, you! I personally think that Too Faced screams girly! If I saw this makeup when I was a little girl, I honestly would've gone all heart-eyes-emoji over it. The packaging is so cute and pretty. My favourite items from Too Faced are the Melted lipsticks and the Chocolate bar eyeshadow palette. First of all, a chocolate scented eyeshadow palette. Is it necessary- no but is it amazing- hell yes. No ones going to come up and sniff your eyeballs any time soon but its a little bit of luxury in the morning when I'm doing my makeup. I think I may cry the day I get my hands on the peaches palette! It's so pretty and I just need it in my life OK?!! And right now I am really desperate to try out the Better Than Sex waterproof mascara. I've always wanted to try out this mascara and the fact that they've come out with a waterproof version has me sold. You can check out my post where I haul these makeup items here.

Urban Decay

My first ever eyeshadow palette was the Urban Decay NAKED 2 palette and I still love it! UD is an all around good brand. I am dying to try out more of their makeup. The Naked concealer, foundation & BB creams are at the very top of my makeup wish list right now but everytime I go into Debenhams they never have my shade in stock. Boooo! And the new range of makeup they have released for spring/summer is amazing. I was testing out the highlighters the other day and OMG they are beautiful! It took me every ounce of strength in my body to stop myself from buying the lot! Haha!  

What are your favourite high-end makeup brands & what are some makeup items I should try out from these brands?

Love, Becca x

  8. Lovely post, I'd find it so hard to narrow it down to jusr 3 because I find I like certain brands for different items of makeup! Mac & Chanel are my go to for lip products, and urban decay for eye stuff, I get so bored of foundations though so I change that quite frequently!

  9. I hate MAC because it's heavy, it breaks me out and it's THEATRE MAKEUP so it isn't meant for every day use. Having said that, I love Urban Decay and Too Faced! :)
