Top Luxury Beauty ProductsThat Are Worth The Cash

When it comes to luxury products, it can be difficult to determine what is legitimately worth the money and what is a rip off. I love the list below from Total Beauty because it includes a number of products that I have tried and love. In particular, I adore DHC cleansing oil (which I don’t really consider a luxury item, it isn’t that terribly expensive) and DiorShow Iconic mascara. If you want one the best all around mascaras out there, you really can’t go wrong with that one! Also on the list that I love is a powder from Amazing Cosmetics, a line that I think is rather amazing all around.

I can’t quibble with much of the rest of the list either, For example, I love Nars lipstick and the list includes one of the great (but more expensive) hairdryers. But there are a couple of exceptions. I’m not a big fan of the Wexler product listed. I didn’t hate it, but I also didn’t think that it really did much. I also am not a huge Fekkai fan. I never have seen special results form their products that made me feel like they were worth the extra price. But I will admit that I haven’t used the specific product in the list.

Anyway, click on through below to see the list at the Total Beauty site. It is always nice to see their lists, which are based on reader ratings.

NARS Lip Treatments and NARS 2010 Summer Collection

I had the pleasure of meeting with representatives of NARS Cosmetics last week and viewing the new NARS Summer Collection for 2010. Among the lip items were a set of NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatments which are wonderful little tinted lip balms.  These thin balms include sun protection and are made with Wild Mango Butter, Vitamin E, Polar Berries and Açai Oil. Texture is that of a medium balm. So it is buttery and lasts fairly well.

There are six shades—one clear and 5 tinted. The NARS Lip Treatment Balms are quite sheer, so they don’t all show well in my swatch below. However, they do build a bit, so if you get one of the highest tinted ones (such as Angelique), you will see more color from it. Swatches are below, but I lost track of which are which. Angelique is the brightest one to the right though.

New lip shades for the Summer Collection include NARS Lip Gloss Coup de Coeur and NARS Lipstick Love Devotion.  The lipstick is a coral shade that is rather sheer. It can be built up for more color, but I prefer it on the sheer side. The gloss is a richer shade that pairs nicely with the lipstick to darken things up a bit.  NARS’ gloss tends to wear well and is not sticky.

For more on the NAR Summer collection, head on over to Beauty and Fashion Tech to see eye shadow and blush swatches and the new NARS multiple. I will also be reviewing the new NARS Multiple Tints and new primers there over the next week or two.
