Our Beauty Awards judges have decided – these are the make-up products worth an extra buck

The votes are in and the All4Women Beauty Awards panel has chosen the best make-up products worth splurging on. These are our picks:



If you’re going to wear foundation, then it has to be good quality – which comes at a price. The benefit is that your skin will look great, the foundation will not look heavy or caked, and it is less likely that your skin will have a bad reaction.

Out top pick is the Chanel Ultra Le Teint Ultrawear All-Day Comfort – Flawless Finish Foundation for R925 at Woolworths.

A power palette

Instead of buying a number of tiny eye shadow palettes and a separate highlighter, why not just go for a high-quality long-lasting highlighter palette that you can also use on your eyelids (and on your collar bones if you like)?

We love the Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette Golden Sands Edition from Takealot for R1338.

Long lasting eyeliner

As much as the Beauty Awards panel loves affordable eyeliners, for a special occasion when you really want your eyes to pop, you might want to try something a little bit more pricey.

Guaranteed to last for more than 24 hours, our pick is the Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof eyeliner by Sisley Paris available from Edgars for R681.

Magic mascara

If you’re really into long sexy lashes that bring out your eyes, then you need a waterproof and long-lasting mascara like our pick, the Coverderm Perfect Lashes Mascara that you can get for R339 at Dis-Chem.
