Beauty Products That Last Ages

I, like many other bloggers, spend a small fortune on beauty products and I'm always trying to make them last longer or find dupes that are a bit cheaper to help save a bit of money. There are some products, though, that actually last a really long time and are well worth spending those hard-earned pennies on...
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle, £22.00
You can tell just by looking at it that this baby is in it for the long haul. It's a soft powder with a frost finish which I use as a highlighter for my cheekbones, nose - anywhere that I want a bit of shimmer, basically. I can't tell you how much I love this product. You don't need to put much on your brush at all to see results and I just cannot see this powder ever running out! I bought it a year ago and it still barely looks touched - despite being used every single day. It is so worth the £22 as I know it's something that I won't have to repurchase for a looong time.
Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake (Shade: Thunder), £15.50
Brow products are one of those beauty products that not everyone is going to agree on. It took me ages to find one I was happy with and, although I still sometimes look at my brows in despair, I think I'm satisfied with this Illamasqua offering. When I first started filling in my brows I used to use a pencil and I literally went through one a month sometimes because of how often it needed sharpening. Powders, on the other hand, can last much longer and I can't see my Eyebrow Cake by Illamasqua running out any time soon. It's only a small square palette but I've had it since December and I'm nowhere near hitting pan, yet. £15.50 for a product that will probably last a whole year (and is one I use daily) is a no-brainer in my opinion.
MAC Fluid Line Eyeliner Gel (Shade: Blacktrack), £15.50
I don't really use eyeliner that often because it stresses me out far too much when I can't get the flicks to match (girl probs and all that) but I like to always have one on hand for when I do want to use it and you can't really go wrong with this gel by MAC. It takes a while to get used to gel eyeliner if you're used to using a pencil or a pen but it's actually really easy to use. You just need a thin brush and a steady hand (and lots of patience!) The colour is really black, doesn't budge when it's on and you don't need to use much product at all so this little pot is well worth investing in.
Lush Lip Scrub in Popcorn, £5.50
No-one likes dry, flaky lips and, when vaseline won't do the job, this is where the Lush lip scrub steps in. The sugary grains gently exfoliate away dry parts and leave your lips primed and ready for a lipstick or gloss. This isn't a product I use daily but it's one that's well worth having in your stash as it works wonders and, as you only need to use a little bit, it's likely you won't have to repurchase very often at all.

Do you have any beauty products that last ages? I'd love to know!
