13 High-End Makeup Products Worth The Price Tag

Some girls will break the bank for shoes, others for purses. When it comes to what I’ll spend boatloads of money on, it’s makeup.

Here’s the thing though, not every product with a big price tag is actually worth the cost. Sometimes you think you’re shopping high-end for quality, but in reality you’re really just paying for the “name” or “reputation” of the brand.

Well, the reputation of the brand isn’t going to cover my dark circles, so get out of here with that nonsense.

Here are 13 products that are worth every penny, most of which can be located at Ulta or Sephora.

All products are clickable to their links for purchase!

  • Long-lasting

I realize that not everyone (myself included) has the money to blow on all of these products at once. If anything, add to your collection slowly, but surely and in the meantime feel free to indulge in the numerous amazing drugstore products out there that are equally worth your while (I specifically recommend anything Milani or NYX).
