Makeup comes in all shapes, sizes & price brackets. But these are the long-wearing products to really make friends with!
Makeup is something we love here at Beaut HQ. But like shoes or clothes, there are certain products that are more fun than functional. Great quality, long wearing makeup is worth investing in. But it doesn't always have to cost the earth either. We've picked out five products that have never let us down (including a couple of budget buys).
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara €26
Not only is this a great mascara, giving lashes length, curl and volume (without clumping at all), it also has some serious staying power. On the flip side, it's easy to remove at the end of the day which is always a bonus.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation €40
This has been one of our go-to foundations for a long time, and for good reason. There's a great shade selection, the formula applies well and it lasts for hours on end. (Check out last week's piece about why we still love it after all these years!)
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer €5.79
Now available in six shades (previously there were only a paltry three options) this is one of the best budget concealers out there. It covers dark circles in a jiffy and lasts well throughout the day too.
Benefit Ka Brow! Pomade €26
Another win for Benefit. The brow pomade is really smooth to work with whether you're filling in or shaping. It leaves brows looking great all day long without fading or smudging. If you're watching the pennies, we've found an €11 brilliant dupe that works well too.
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick €9
If you are looking for a long wearing lipstick, look no further than NYX. These feel comfortable to wear and come in an impressive 24 shades (including neutrals, reds and berry tones as well as a rather jazzy blue and purple).
