There’s something absolutely gratifying about owning luxury brands. I mean, they make us feel so bougie. Names such as Chanel, Dior and YSL seem to light up our eyes whenever we gaze at them in the makeup aisles of Sephora. But alas, more often than not, we simply walk away from purchasing any of it, considering that they’re super expensive – even looking at the prices make our hearts drop.
We often wonder if the products and formulations justify the prices of these items. Are we paying simply for the name? Yes and no. We are paying for their names, but higher prices mean higher quality as well, hence the cost. So, if you just happen to have extra moolah lying around and wish to purchase these luxury brands, here are some high-end makeup products that we think will be worth every sen.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup SPF 10 Foundation
