While you can never go wrong with affordable beauty products (there are so many goodies on the market these days), there's something about spendy makeup products that just make the whole doing-your-makeup thing feel like an absolute treat.
Lipsticks in magnetic packaging, weighty gold mascaras, shimmery shadows - there's no better way to treat yourself than by splurging on some swanky new makeup products.

In saying that - buying luxury makeup is obviously bloody expensive - and you really want to make sure you're getting more than just a brand, right?
That's why we've pulled together 10 of the best luxury makeup brands that are actually worth the splurge - plus, the best products from each brand.
Ready? Let's go!
First up, Giorgio Armani Beauty. And as IF we're going to talk about Giorgio Armani Beauty and not mention Luminous Silk Foundation ($105). Ha! Nice one, fellas.
Have you tried it? No? It's bloody good. The formula is beautifully lightweight and silky and blends in like a dream (no streaks or funny business). It honestly feels like you're wearing nothing at all - that second skin kind of stuff.
Offering light to medium coverage, it's perfect for everyday wear - so, if you haven't tried it and looking for a foundation that's a little swankier than your usual, we highly recommend. It just makes your skin look... better.
Another best-seller is Giorgio Armani Eye Tint, $48, a fool-proof formula that offers intense colour payoff - whether you want to wear it as an eyeshadow or a liner. The Eye Tint formula also has that iconic lightweight feel (similar to the foundation). No drying, flaking and settling into fine lines.
