Have you ever walked into a Sephora and left with more products then you set out to purchase? If you nodded your head in agreement, just know that you’re not alone. We are huge beauty lovers over here at PLH and if there’s one thing we can’t get enough of it’s trips to Sephora and designer beauty brands- oops guess that’s two things.
Determining which designer brands to splurge on is tough especially since there are so many options available. Yes, these products tend to be more expensive than your average drugstore find which begs to question whether these high-end brands are worth the hype. So before you collect more beauty insider points keep reading to uncover which designer beauty products we believe deliver on their promises and are worth the hefty price tag.
- Gucci- Firstly, Gucci Beauty’s gorgeous packaging is particularly captivating. With luxe golds and pastel pink’s it’s no secret why we almost held off on cracking the seals open. We recently put all of our swoon-worthy vibes aside and tried some of the Italian fashion houses makeup products and honey, the results are in!
The lip balm and mascara are two products we can see ourselves continuously splurging on for years to come. Not only is the lip balm super hydrating but it’s also vegan. And don’t get us started on the mascara- our lashes haven’t seen volume and length like this since the days we applied lash primers and mascara.
- Giorgio Armani- Armani has become the designer brand known for its amazing foundations. If you suffer from breakouts or acne scarring, we highly recommend trying Armani’s luminous silk foundation. The luminous silk foundation offers a formula that gives full coverage and leaves the face with an incredible luminous glow. Yes, dewy skin is a goal but an even skin tone is even better.
- Chanel- Chanel beauty has been one of our go-to beauty brands for over a decade. Most Chanel beauty products are the crème de la crème of makeup products with innovative formulas that are unmatched. From light-weight foundations with SPF to highly pigmented lipsticks and glosses, we’ve never tried a product from the French fashion house that did not deliver. These are the products we always have on hand.
- Yves Saint Laurent- YSL’s brightening concealer pens and Rouge Volupte lipsticks are cult favorites. When we haven’t gotten a full eight hours of sleep in, you’ll catch us reaching for YSL Beaty’s Touche Eclat All-Over Brightening Pen. This concealer not only hides our dark circles, but it instantly refreshes our faces leaving us with the illusion of being bright eyed and ready to take on the day. Add the Volupte lipstick to complete the look and a little mascara and voila you have a natural daily makeup look! You can find both products in our makeup bags and the kits of many makeup artists.
