High End Makeup Worth The Hype!

Welcome back to Haley’s Beauty Room! Lately I’ve been very focused on drugstore makeup. I see nothing wrong with that as the products have been top notch and I’m not spending $50 on a makeup brush.

That being said, sometimes high end makeup is where it’s at. That’s why today I want to discuss some prestige makeup that is actually worth the hype. You by no means need to go out and immediately purchase these items, but if you are looking to splurge, these are the products I would recommend spending your hard earned coin on.

So, if you’re interested to see what high end products are worth the hype, then keep on reading!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders perfect any skin type of any age. These extremely, finely milled powders contain Photoluminescent Technology to diffuse and soften the look of the skin. The micron-size, color-correcting particles refract light and create transparent coverage, filtering out harsh light and refining the appearance of the skin.

You can purchase multiple shades in individual pans, however, I recommend holding out for the Ambient Lighting Palettes. These six pan palettes are released yearly, typically around the Holidays, and contain bronzers, blushes, and highlighters.

I received the Ambient Edit III last year and I use it every single day. It is for sure the best bang for your buck and the powders perform so well!. This product is definitely worth the hype.

Note: The pictured palette was limited edition and is no longer available, check back around October to see when the new one is released!

Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour Palette

If you need a contour palette of powders, this is hands down the best out there. This six pan palette features three highlighting shades and three contour shades. All are matte and blend out like a dream. The pans are also refillable so you don’t need to buy a new palette when you run out of one color.

They are creamy, pigmented, and the best for contouring/highlighting. The three contour shades create realistic shadows to recede facial features, while the three highlight shades impart a soft luminosity to amplify dimension, so you can effortlessly sculpt, chisel, shape, and slenderize your features.

100% worth the hype!

If you haven’t heard of this setting spray, I would honestly be shocked. This item is a serious cult favorite because it actually works! This spray suitable for all skin types, free of oil and parabens, and features patented Temperature Control Technology. This means it works with the outside temperature and your body to make sure your makeup doesn’t budge.

It keeps your face looking fresh, hydrated, and in place for up to 16 hours. This product is definitely worth the hype.

This palette has an array of matte to metallic shades, so you get a perfect look every time. People aren’t lying when they say this palette is amazing because it’s totally worth the hype!

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner


In my opinion, this is the absolute best liquid eyeliner on the market. It doens’t smudge, it’s incredibly pigmented, it dries down matte, and the felt tip is very precise. This liner is really easy to work with and it doesn’t tug at your eyelids.

Plus, it comes in 11 beautiful shades to keep your look poppin’!

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Primer

If you need your skin to be totally poreless, smooth, and basically perfect, this is the primer for you. It acts as an invisible barrier to prevent makeup from clogging pores and as a velvety primer to absorb excess oil and blur fine lines and imperfections while improving the longevity of makeup.

If you have dry skin, try the Pores No More Luminizer primer instead! It works just as well and adds beautiful radiance.
