Blogmas Day 4 ¦ Top 10 high end favourites

I did this post about a year ago and I thought it was about time I updated it as my favourites are completely different. So without further ado lets get one with it as I feel like it's going to involve a lot of gushing.
Starting off with bases I had to include the Urban Decay Naked foundation this is just my favourite foundation for dry skin. It's a beautiful medium coverage which can be built up beautifully. It doesn't sink into any dry patches and just sits so nicely on my skin. I also picked out the Bare minerals complexion rescue which is again another beautiful formula for dry skin. This is a much lower coverage than the Naked skin foundation and it is the base I always reach for on good skin days and days which my skin is even drier than usual. For my concealer I picked out the Clarins instant concealer I do love the Naked concealer however this one is just a little bit better. I find this works beautifully on anything I need it for whether it be my dark circles, blemishes or redness. Again it just sits beautifully on my dry skin and doesn't sink into any dry patches. Can you sense the theme!
For the rest of my face I had to include the Benefit Hoola bronzer which is just the perfect bronzer for pale skins. It blends beautifully into the skin and looks incredibly natural whilst still adding some warmth to the face. For blush I had to pick out the Illamasqua blush duo in Lover and hussy these blushes are absolutely stunning, highly pigmented and just beautiful shades. For the brows it was a close call between Anastasia dip brow and Gimme brow from Benefit. In the end I went for Gimme brow as it is one of those products I feel like I will always have in my collection. It's perfect for no makeup days when I just want a little bit of texture in my brows but I also love using it over any other brow products to just set them in place.
Dose of colours, Bare with me, Truffle and Kiss of fire, YSL 47, Clinique Poppy pop, Gimme brow, Hoola bronzer, Illamasqua Lover and Hussy, Urban decay, Pop, Anaheim and Punk.
For eyes I had to pick an Urban decay palette and in the end I settled on the Gwen Stefani palette as it's definitely the one I get the most use out of. I love that it is mostly neutrals however it has those few pops of colour. I especially love the blue for on my lower lash line. As with all Urban decay shadows these are beautifully pigmented and creamy and blend like an absolute dream. Then finally for lips I had to include the Dose of Colours liquid lipsticks, they are so beautifully velvety and comfortable on the lips. Highly pigmented and extremely long lasting they are definitely my favourite Liquid lipstick formula I have tried. Then for actual lipsticks I picked out the YSL Rouge volupte shine in the shade 47 which is just the most beautiful pinky brown nude shade. It is incredibly glossy on the lips so I find it perfect for the days when my lips are feeling a bit dry and gross. Finally my 10th pick is the Clinique Lip pop in the shade Poppy pop which is a orangey red shade. Again it feels very comfortable and although it feels very hydrating it still lasts really well.
So that's it for today I hope you enjoyed this post!
