#2014BloggerChallenge - Most Wanted High End Beauty Products
When Gaby put out the latest #2014BloggerChallenge prompt; high end vs high street, I knew exactly where I wanted to go with this! I've been scrolling around the internet like a kid in a candy shop with a platinum AMEX eyeing up all of the over priced beauty luxuries I can only dream of taking home with me one day.
That day doesn't look like it's going to come any time soon (though I might go and put the lottery on tonight just incase!) but it's always fun to window shop...right?
So let's jump right in and take a peek at the products making me drool all over my keyboard!
1. Narsissist Eye Shadow palette (£50)
I still have yet to purchase anything Nars but if I had my way, this palette would break my Nars-ginity! I'm a neutrals girl and a sucker for pretty palettes - and just look at this beauty! I love the pigmentation in Nars products and this palette is so versatile for day and night, it'd create numerous awesome looks.
2. Elemis Pro Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream (£95)
I used a sample of this a while ago and fell head over heels in love with it. I'm pretty sure they discontinued it for a while but it appears to be back and I'm OH so tempted to give in. This really helped my skin out, reducing redness and leaving it plump and silky smooth come morning. I've used a couple of Elemis products but this has been the best by far!
3. Sisley Palatte L'Orchidee (£62)
I'll be honest, if I actually owned this I don't know if I'd be able to use it at all because it's just too darn pretty to spoil! The above image really doesn't do it justice, the mixtures of pink and coral and the shimmer...the shimmer, the shimmer! It's more like a piece of art than a beauty product! I also love their luxe packaging!
4. Guerlain Meteorites Pearl Powder Blush (£37.50)
When something is described as the ability to transform light invisible to the naked eye into a pure and endless glow on the skin - who doesn't want a pure and endless glow? I love the multicoloured multifunctional pearls; yellow to counter redness, pink for freshness and mauve to catch the light, it's like a walking light studio for my face alone. swoon
5. Molten Brown Ylang Ylang Body Wash (£18)
OK, so it might be the cheapest thing on the list, making it seem a little less high end than the other products here but, I generally pick my body wash up for under £3 - so £18 is way out of my minimum wage price range! I got a sample of this a while ago and it was so foamy and luxurious! It smelt heavenly and made my bathroom feel like a luxurious hotel room. Yes, a shower gel can do just that!
6. Creme De La Mer (£105)
I have always wondered just what the hype - and the price tag, are all about when it comes to Creme De La Mer. I would love to bag myself a pot and found out (and of course share it with all you lovely people!) but alas, this is nowhere in my near future! I could never justify spending £105 on a moisturiser when my current one costs under £10! I'd be too terrified to use it!
7. Lancome Visionnaire (£59)
If you've been around the blog over the last couple of weeks you'll know I've recently fell in love with Lancome skin care - especially Visionnaire. I received a sample with my Clarisonic and it worked absolute magic on my skin - I miss it terribly! I tried to find a dupe but it just didn't work out as well as I hoped it would! I'd love to treat myself to a full sized bottle one day!
8. Mulberry Make-up Case (£210)
If I was ever to purchase all the goodies on the list then they all deserve a case equally as luxurious to be kept in - and what's more luxurious than a Mulberry? Ah, a girl can dream can't she?
So what would you all put on your must have high end products list?
Until next time,
