The 'Worth It' High End Beauty Bits

Dipping your toes into the world of high end beauty can be incredibly exciting but also a bit daunting. When you're spending a large chunk of money on one piece of make up you want to be sure it's going to be worth it. Over the years, I've found that some high-end bits aren't always any better than cheaper high street offerings, however, some of them really are worth shelling out your hard earned pennies for...

Illamasqua Eye Brow Cake
If you've read my blog for a while, now, then you will have probably seen me bang on about this product at some point. It's just amazing. Like, seriously. Eye Brow Cake is essentially just a powder for your brows. No tasty sponge involved, sorry. However, the good news is that I bought mine last year, around November time, and it's nowhere near running out yet. I used to spend about a fiver a month on Max Factor eyebrow pencils until I decided to try this badboy out. I now spend £15.50 in one go for a brow product that will probably last well over a year.

Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel
Whilst the eye brow cake is something I use daily, this handy little gel is something I turn to on about a weekly basis dependent on how my skin is behaving. Yes, it costs £20 (for a tiny tub of gel!?) but you only need to rub the tiniest bit on to a spot that's just about to rear it's ugly head, to help get rid of it. Plus, for me anyway, it really does work - unlike a lot of spot treatments I've tried before that just leave my skin dried out and my spots looking redder than ever.
Clarins Daily Energizer Cream
Moisturiser is something that is going to be very personal to each individual dependent on their skin type and as there are literally so many options out there, you want to be sure the one you buy is a good'un. Personally, I think investing in a good moisturiser is more than worth it. It's something you're going to slap on your face every single day (and night if you use the same one as on a morning) so there's no point just grabbing any old product cos it's cheap. For me, this moisturiser is the one I always find myself turning back to. It sinks straight into my skin. doesn't break me out and smells beauts. A pot lasts me a good 3-4 months and, at £21, I think it's actually pretty cheap for a high end brand like Clarins.
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle
If you only buy one highlighting product - buy this. This huge domed, frost finish powder is basically a gift from god. You only need a light dusting to get a nice, subtle glow and it's just so big that I don't see it running out any time soon (it'll be a sad day when it does, I tell you.)
Which high end products do you think are the most 'worth it'?
