High End Beauty Help Needed

Hi everyone! I hope you're all well :).

As some of you may now, I will be going to the US at the end of next week (squeals excitedly) and of course I will be buying lots of new beauty things - lets pray for my credit card, haha.
However as I live in Finland we don't have half of the high end beauty brands that you have in the US and the UK. That's why I'd really appreciate it if you'd like to tell me which high end products you think are "the must".

We do have high end brands in Finland but most of them are brands that sell other things than makeup if that makes sense. Like Chanel, YSL, Estee Lauder etc. If you have time in your hands or just really want to help a fellow beauty enthusiast out then here's a list of all the high end beauty brands we have. The website is in Finnish but as it's just a list of names I think you'll be fine ;).

Some brands that I'm extremely excited about are NARS, Benefit, Too Faced, Tarte and Urban Decay so if you've some recommendations from these brands then just get listing!

So basically if you've a little bit of time just list a couple of your favourite high end products in the comments and you'll make me extremely happy and grateful. Also feel free to link any high end starter kit posts or any posts that you think would help me decide which products to get and make my list even a little bit shorter!

Thank you so much in advance if you had the time help me!

  1. Oh wow! I hope you have a great time! I personally recommend Charlotte Tilbury, Hourglass (which is cheaper in the US!), Kevyn Aucoin, Laura Mercier,.. ! :) xx

  2. Oh gosh I could literally write you a book! Especially if you're going to Sephora. What type of products are you specifically looking for, lips, eyes, foundation, highlighters?

    If you're looking for blogger/youtuber favorite products I'd go with: NARS radiant creamy concealer, Becca cosmetics highlighters (Opal is a popular shade), Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation, Urban Decay Naked concealer, a beauty blender, Makeup Forever Artist Shadows.

    I'm not a huge fan of Too Faced or Benefit so I can't give too many recommendations. A lot of people love Too Faced's melted lipsticks, so test those out when you're in Sephora! Benefit just came out with a new mascara (Roller lash) that's been getting decent reviews.

    If you're looking for great high-end product to really splurge on I would look into Kevin Aucoin's Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting. It's like a creamy highlighter on crack. It gives you such a phenomenal glow.


  3. I could buy the whole of sephora! Urban decay naked palettes and their primer potions are holy grail for me. I use them every single day :) I like benefit's hoola bronzer and their blushers. The too faced melted lipsticks look amazing and I love the eyeshadow palettes too! The nars creamy concealer is good and their audacious lipsticks are fab! Laura mercier, kevyn aucoin and becca are fab too! Make up forever eyeshadows and their HD foundation is meant to be amazing. Stila magnificent metal eyeshadows are expensive but very unique. They are very metallic foil eyeshadows but they look gorgeous for special occasions. Have a great time! Xx

    - Benefit Erase Paste
    - Nars Creamy Concealer
    - Sample of the Hourglass Primer
    - Invade an Ulta to see drugstore and highend beauty products

  5. I'm looking for everything really :D. Thank you so much for all the recommendations! Just got the NARS concealer yesterday as I fell in love with it. Will definitely check all the other products too as soon as I go Sephora again :)x

  6. Haha, I know, me too! I really want one of the Naked palettes - or all of them actually - but I have no idea which one to buy first! I just bought the Hoola bronzer, which blushers would you recommend?
    I think I'm gonna buy a couple Make Up Forever eyeshadows, they looked gorgeous! Ooh, I have to check the Stila ones too! Thank you hun :)xx

  7. Thank you so much! This was a huge help, the nearest Ulta is really far away so I can't use that tip but there's two Sephoras and many CVS' near :). I love the NARS concealer, really want to try the Too Faced Chocolate Bronzers too, xx
