13 High End Makeup Products That Are Actually Worth The Price, According To Reddit

I don't know about you, but when I'm considering a makeup investment the very first thing I do is consult Reddit (well, after the Cosmopolitan Beauty Lab of coure). It's easy to get lost in a beauty black hole, and over my many hours days stalking the makeup forums, I've seen a handful of high end products crop up time and time again.

Yep, when it comes to dropping cash on new makeup, nobody wants to waste time on products that don't work. So if you're considering an expensive purchase be sure to study up on the internet-approved picks first. These pricey-but-totally-worth-it buys have hit holy grail status on Reddit, here's why...

1. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, Dhs245

Beauty

"Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk has been my holy grail for six years. I’ve tried dozens of foundations since, trying to find something even just a little cheaper that works as well, but no luck!" Says sommerflue77.

2. By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder, Dhs230

Beauty

"It pains me to say it but the By Terry Hydra Powder is worth every damn penny. I have dry skin so I rarely wear powder but when I do need to set foundation or concealer, this is the only powder I have ever used that looks flawless and doesn't pull moisture from the skin. Most powders that claim to be dry skin-friendly are usually just silica or talc with some shimmer to help avoid a desiccated matte look, whereas the By Terry is truly a hydrating formula throughout." Says dreamphone.

3. Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Mascara in Bloodroses, Dhs120

Beauty

"I will also never stop purchasing my Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lash Mascara in the shade Bloodroses. It's a deeeeeep burgundy undertoned black and you can't even really tell it's not completely black because it's so dark and gives the same overall look...except the undertone makes eye colours POP - without being able to pin point why to the blind unknowing eye. Plus I love the curl and separation it gives. There's nothing same expect colour and formula like it." Says tazend314.

6. Tom Ford Eye Colour Quad in Honeymoon, Dhs389

Beauty

"Tom Ford quads: I love how easy they are to blend and how I can effortlessly create a work appropriate or more intense eye look. I have two (Honeymoon and Last Dance) and they are totally worth the cost." Says sraydenk.

7. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, Dhs262

Beauty

"Naked 3!! I’m in the process of sloooowly replacing my drugstore products with nicer stuff when it runs out or expires, and the biggest difference I’ve noticed is in eyeshadow. I’m so in love with my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette - it’s so versatile and so pretty." Says emmak8.

8. Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish, Dhs140

Beauty

"Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder is my favourite compact powder. I haven't tried to find a drugstore dupe because I'm obsessed with the finish look after I use the powder. The compact is super sleek and really nice to have in your purse or makeup bag for touch-ups as well." Says amyyam.

9. Dior Nude Air Luminizer, Dhs278

Beauty

"Dior Nude Air Luminizer - aka my holy grail highlight. No obvious particles of glitter/shimmer, just straight up glow. There are other 'baked gelée' formulas on the market but this has the finest shimmer and does not emphasise texture. Would repurchase in a heartbeat if anything ever happened to mine." Says Fuzzboo.

Beauty
