The Best High-End Paraben-Free Products


The Best High-End Paraben-Free Products


Continuing with the best paraben-free makeup products, this post is all about the best high-end beauty products! It's a misconception that only cheap products are made with parabens, plenty of expensive and prestigious brands still use parabens as an ingredient in their products.


There are so many amazing high-end products to choose from, this is just small portion of products I would highly recommend anyone to pick up.


All of these products are also aluminum free!


Let's get in to the list!

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons

$24 (0.05 oz)
Sephora

Full reviews HERE and HERE.



I have been raving about these Matte Creme Lip Crayons from Bite Beauty the last few months. They have incredible staying power, around 8 hours, highly pigmented and opaque coverage, and do not feel drying or uncomfortable on the lips!

There are 12 shades available, from nudes to deep browns and berries. I highly recommend the shade "Brandy" for Fall.

The matte lip is on trend this year. If you're looking into liquid lipsticks but don't want the drying formula, I highly recommend trying these out, you will not be disappointed! While, the finish is not a flat matte, it leaves your lips with a satin matte appearance. And, the ingredients are food-grade.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer

$20 ( 0.35 oz)
UltaSephoraToo Faced Website


This eyeshadow primer from Too Faced has been in many of my favorites posts. This primer helps make your shadows apply easier, look more pigmented, and last longer throughout the day.

I have very oily eyelids, so finding an eyeshadow primer that really helps my eyeshadows from creasing throughout the day was difficult. This Too Faced Primer is the only eyeshadow primer that actually prevented my shadows from creasing and looking fresh all day! The color is transparent, so I can use this under any eye look.

If you have mature or dry eyelids, this may not be creamy enough for you, but if you have normal to oily eyelids, it is worth the $20 and I will continue to purchase this time and time again.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro-Powder

$24 (0.23 oz)
Ulta, It Cosmetics Website

The one product I do not have currently in my collection, but one that I would highly recommend, is the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores loose power.

This transparent power is the most finely milled powder I have ever tried. It is the perfect powder for all skin types to set your under eye concealer, set your foundation, and to put all over the face.

I know many people love the BareMinerals Mineral Veil, and the Laura Mercier Brightening Powder, but I think this powder tops them all. Touch your under eye after a few hours, you'll be shocked how silky your under eye feels!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

$28 (0.16 oz)
Ulta, Sephora, Urban Decay Website

Full review HERE.


Finding the perfect concealer for under your eye can be one of the most difficult makeup items to find. What works for younger skin may not work for mature skin types. 

The Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is the perfect medium to build-able coverage concealer for both the under eye and the face. It is easy to blend, and looks absolutely flawless. There's no added texture or emphasis to your fine lines or wrinkles.

You will need to set this concealer with a powder, I highly recommend the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores. This duo will help camouflage light to moderate under eye dark circles, wrinkles, and discoloration. Severe under eye dark circles will need to be topped with a corrector first.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

$38 (1 fl oz)
Sephora, Estee Lauder Counters, Estee Lauder Website


I have tried several full coverage foundations, both drugstore and high-end. The one I always come back to, and would recommend for anyone looking for a full coverage but still flawless looking foundation, the Estee Lauder Double Wear is it.

This foundation comes in 30 shades. There will be a shade for every skin tone. The coverage is medium to full, but does not look heavy on the face. It does not fade or look patchy as the day goes on, and lasts at least 10 hours before needing some touch ups.

If you have mature or dry skin, add a few drops of facial oil to your foundation to add hydration and make the foundation blend more seamlessly. Argan oil or the Tarte Maracuja oil are both excellent options.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Full Strength

$45 (2 fl oz)
Ulta, Juice Beauty Website

Full review HERE.



Skincare is very personal, every person's skin type is unique. What works for me may not work for someone else, so just keep that in mind.

But one product that I think every skin type, except sensitive or rosacea prone skin types, will benefit from, is the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Full Strength.

Juice Beauty uses certified organic ingredients in all of their products. The hydroxy fruit acids in this peel help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and discoloration. I have oily acne prone skin, and I love how this rids my skin of old acne marks and helps prevent future breakouts. Mature skin types will love this for reducing the signs of aging and brightening up the complexion.

This is not recommended for sensitive skin. If you do have sensitive skin, try out the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive.
