I don't own a lot of high end makeup and most of what I have has been given to me as Christmas or birthday presents from my husband. I'm not a big fan of overpaying for products and that's usually how I feel about high end makeup. However, I thought it was worth sharing what I did have just to satisfy any curious minds. If I had to choose one item that I am willing to spend the extra money for, it would definitely be the Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer. This really is a good deal for the price. For $18, I get a primer that lasts for about a year and a half and does a great job of making my eyeshadow true to color, last longer, prevents creasing, and yet still makes shadow easy to blend. All over goodness.
A closer look at the shadows in the Pixie Pin-Ups Palette. It also came with a mini shadow primer, mini pinpoint mascara, and mini lava gloss eyeliner.
And a closer look at the Smashbox Click You're It Palette. It came with a mini Smashbox Photo Finish lid primer. The top three rows are eyeshadows and the bottom row are cream liners that could also be used as an eyeshadow base.
