It's nice to treat yourself once in a while, isn't it?!
I'm not usually one to splash out on cosmetics... I class Mac and Benefit as high end, where as some class them as high street/mid priced brands.
My makeup bag is filled with lots of different products, in about a 60/40 split high street/high end.
I'm one of those people who is quite happy to settle for a dupe, if it means it costs less.

My boyfriend talked me into splashing some cash on a recent trip to Fenwicks, and I came home with a right little beauty!
Tom Ford cosmetics have always been something I have majorly lusted over, and never really considered paying, but I'm so glad I took that giant step and bought something.

When I went to the counter, I knew I wanted a lipstick, and I knew I wanted a colour which I could wear every day, rather than a nighttime colour. I wanted to get my money's worth out of it!

The MUA was really helpful, and let me try lots of different lipsticks before I decided on this one, 'Pink Dusk', and as I reluctantly (and excitedly) handed over my credit card, she wrapped the lipstick in black tissue paper and sprayed the bag with Tom Ford perfume. I love the extra little touches like that!

The quality of the bag, the box, the lipstick casing and the product itself are all top of the range.
The lipstick lasts hours on the lips, isn't drying and I feel expensive when I wear it - I guess a treat once in a while is a good thing!
