High End vs High Street


Welcome to topic 4 of the 2014 Blogger Challenge. The topic this time is high end vs high street. There were so many post ideas for this topic ranging from a dupe post to a wish list or a straightforward comparison. I couldn't decide what to post about but after having a brain wave at about 1am, I decided to share with you my favourite eye, face and lip products for both high end and high street. 

High End


Although the Naked 3 palette is a relatively new addition to my makeup collection, I have been loving it and use it pretty much every day. The shades are all lovely and there are so many looks you can create. My all time favourite foundation is MAC's Mineralize Moisture. I tend to mix up my foundation and use a variety of brands, however this is always the foundation that I will come back to. Finally, you guessed it, my favourite high end lip product has to be MAC's lipsticks. I don't have a favourite shade, as they're all so beautiful!

High Street


My all time favourite high street brand for eyeshadow has to be Sleek. I love their palettes and think they have such a great range to choose from. My favourite is definitely the Storm palette as it has a really good mix of neutral colours with a few brighter ones. I'm not a huge fan of high street foundation as I can never find a shade light enough for my skin tone. But I've been really impressed with Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid foundation as they have a really great range of shades to suit all skin. Finally, my favourite high street lip product is no doubt Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipsticks. Again I have no favourite shade as there is such a good colour range and they're all lovely. 

So those are some of my favourite high end and high street products. I could continue to list more favourites but I think we might be here all day! 

What do you think of my favourite products? Do you own any of them?

    1. I don't find that it's a popular choice of MAC foundation so it's good to know someone else loves it as much as me! It's definitely something I will always go back to as I know it won't disappoint! X

  2. I am with you on the 1am brainwaves, always happens to me! Totally agree about high street foundation, they are often way to orange.
