However, I still would love to start owning more high end makeup. I tend to follow Lancome and Guerlain releases more than others (and are the brands that I actually own pieces from), but Chanel and Dior have a few items that I love to try. Here are the two high end products I do have:
Lancome Color Design palette in Teal Fury. I'd been eyeing the palettes for a while and wanted one of the more colorful ones as I have plenty of palettes with a neutral focus. Overall, I think it's really nice. The lid and highlight colors are very pretty; the majority of the shadows are very smooth and not that difficult to work with (for more color payoff, I use my fingers to apply the lid color). The only problem shadow is the the crease shade for the fact that I hardly get anything on the brush and I feel that I need to apply quite a bit of it to have any impact.

The items at the top of my wishlist:
Guerlain Meteorites Pearls. I've heard nothing but good things about this but recently I've heard that it was reformulated and is not as good as it used to be.
Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm. It's one of those gimmicky 'change to your chemistry' balms, but I've heard that the balm itself is good. Also, their Creme de Rose balm is another one I'd like to try as I'm on the hunt for a new balm.
Chanel Illusion D'ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow. I haven't really worked with creme shadows that much but previous limited edition colors have been quite pretty.
Since I don't wear a full face of makeup that much during the week, I most likely would be willing to spend money on a high end lipstick or lip gloss before any other makeup product. Those are the two products I love to use the most (and if you prefer to play around with lip color rather than eye color, it's better in the long run). What's the most you would be willing to spend a lipstick/lip gloss?
